Pre-Wedding Hair Questions Answered

Can I make changes to my booking after I reserve my date? You can always add on additional hair styling services but you cannot remove, if you’re unsure about a guest just exclude them from your inquiry & add them on later if need be! If the getting ready location changes that’s okay I’ll requote for that if need be as well!

Is it okay if I don't know how many ladies will need service yet? Absolutely! If you're not sure about the final count yet, that's okay. Just include your best guess with your inquiry. We'll need the exact number eventually to finalize your quote, but an estimate is a great start.

How long are services on the wedding day? On your big day, I dedicate 1 to 1.5 hours for the bride's hairstyling to ensure everything is perfect. For bridesmaids, moms, and other guests, each service takes between 45 minutes to an hour. This ensures everyone looks their absolute best!

Do you stay for touch-ups after the ceremony? Once we've finished styling everyone, I'll double-check to ensure every hair is in place and set to last for hours. However, if you're considering a second hairstyle after the ceremony or want touch-ups post-first look, I'm more than happy to stay. Just keep in mind, staying for additional pampering comes with a $75 fee per hour.

What if I don't meet the minimum booking fee? Unfortunately, if the minimum booking fee of $1,000 isn't met, the fee still applies. However, you can use this credit towards your hair preview/trial.

Do you bring an assistant with you? Yes, for bridal parties with more than 6 ladies, including the bride, I bring along a second stylist. This helps ensure your morning prep is efficient and smooth!

Can I book a trial before reserving my wedding day? Certainly! Booking a trial is a great idea. However, please note that I can't secure your wedding date until a non-refundable deposit is made, due to the high demand for bookings.

Multiple Inquiries I always strive to be fair, so I operate on a first-come, first-served basis. When multiple requests come in for the same date, it's a bit like a race to the finish line! To secure your spot, I need a signed contract and deposit. Just keep in mind, scheduling a trial won't lock in your wedding date.

Trial Information Is my trial included in the packages above? ​Unfortunately, trials are not included as they're a separate service. Payment is due at the time of your appointment, priced at $150. Can I book a trial first before securing my date? We only offer trials to booked brides due to high demand. We can't hold a wedding date until scheduling a trial service. Where will my trial be? All trials are held in Rockland County, NY. This is a private in-home studio space, ensuring a relaxed environment without salon buzz. Can I bring someone with me to my trial? We kindly ask that you bring only one guest, as it's a cozy space. What is the length of a trial? Plan to spend about 1-1.5 hrs.

I live Out of State, don't have time for a trial. Do I need one? While a trial is recommended for optimal results, it's not necessary. You can simply send photos by email, and we'll discuss everything prior to your event. This ensures we tailor the perfect look that works seamlessly with your hair.

What is needed for me to be as efficient as possible the morning of: To ensure a smooth and efficient morning, all I need is a table or flat surface and a chair. It's preferable if these are placed by a window for optimal lighting. If you could set this up prior to my arrival, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

When should I schedule my trial? You have the flexibility to schedule your trial whenever suits you best. However, I recommend booking it around 2 months before your wedding date. This timing allows us to ensure your color and hairstyle are fresh and on point. Plus, keep in mind that during wedding season, we're not available on weekends.

Will my hair look exactly like the picture I want? I'm committed to bringing your vision to life! Your hair's unique type, length, and texture will influence the final style, but rest assured, I'll work tirelessly to ensure it matches your desired look as closely as possible.

Should I wash my hair that Morning? We recommend washing your hair the night before your appointment. However, if you tend to sweat, it's fine to wash it the morning of. You know your hair best and how it styles. Please ensure your hair is completely dry and ready to be styled. Avoid flat ironing your hair before curling, as it may affect the hold. Also, remember to wear a button-up or easy-to-remove shirt for convenience.

How will the veil be placed without messing up my hair? Rest assured, I'll personally demonstrate to your Maid of Honor or a chosen guest how to delicately place and remove your veil without disturbing your carefully styled hair. Your look will stay flawless from ceremony to celebration!

What if I have Naturally Curly Hair? If you have naturally curly hair and prefer a curling iron style, it's best to have your hair blown out the night before. However, if you'd like to embrace your natural curls, we'll work with them to create your desired look. Please note, we won't have time to blow out your hair straight and then style it on the morning of your event. If this is your preference, let us know in advance, as it may require additional time and incur an extra charge.

Does the bride get her services last or first? We'll prioritize the bride in the middle of our schedule. It's essential for all guests to arrive at the start time to ensure we can manage our time effectively. We'll start with 2 guests and continue as we go along. No formal schedule is needed—it just adds unnecessary stress to timing.

What hair extensions do you recommend? For bridal hairstyles, I highly recommend clip-in hair extensions. They add volume and versatility, especially for half-up styles. Brands like Bellami and Luxy Hair offer quality extensions that can be color-matched to your shade on their websites. If you're looking for budget-friendly options for your wedding day only, Amazon also offers a variety of options—just be sure to check the reviews for quality.

What kind of payment do you accept? Three days prior to your wedding date, the total balance is due. We accept payments via Zelle or Venmo. Alternatively, if that doesn't work for you, you can make a half payment beforehand and have the remainder in a cash envelope ready on the day. Please note, we don't provide change, so having the exact amount prepared is appreciated. This system helps streamline the payment process, ensuring everything runs smoothly on your special day.

What are your rates? Standard booking minimum of $1000 bride + 4 (includes travel)

Are tips included? Gratuity is not included in the service fees and is entirely at the discretion of the client.
