Frequently Asked Questions
Where will my trial take place?
We schedule trials at our beautiful shared studio space in La Jolla. Please see map on our Contact Page. You are welcome to bring a friend or family member to your trial.
When should I schedule my trial and what is the cost:
Due to the high amount of bookings, we typically recommend scheduling your trial as soon as your booking is complete. This will ensure you can schedule your trial at a time that is convenient for you. We schedule our trials mid-week as we are booked with weddings over the weekends. The cost of your trial is $200.
Do you come on site the day of my event?
Yes, we travel to your getting ready location. If your location is further than 20 miles of La Jolla, travel rates will apply. If there are multiple locations requested, fees will also apply. Please inquire for more information on your specific location.
Do I need to put a deposit down to hold my date?
Yes, a deposit of $250 and completed contract are required to secure your date. Please keep in mind that we receive several inquires every day, and we reserve dates based on a first come first serve basis. Your date is not secure until your deposit has been received.
Is there a minimum amount of services required to book?
Yes! When booking BOTH hair & make up services, there is a minimum booking of Bride plus 4 others for both hair and make up services. If you are booking just hair or just makeup, the minimum Bride plus 3 applies to just that service.
What forms of payment do you take:
We accept Venmo, Paypal, cash or check. Credit cards are welcome with a 4% fee added to your total.
Will you stay on site for touchups?
We schedule 30 minutes at the end of services for touchups. If you would like us to stay on site longer there is a $75 per artist per hour fee.
Can you accommodate larger parties?
Absolutely! Depending on the size of your party, we can accommodate as many services as needed. In the event that you need us to hire one or more of our partnered artists, there is a $100 charge per additional artist.
What brands of makeup do you use?
Our makeup has a reputation of lasting all day with only a lip color/gloss touch up as well as blot papers for shine. We are experienced with many makeup lines and use a variety of products from MAC, Make Up For Ever, Urban Decay, Dior, It Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, and Laura Mercier as well as a few industry products that are used in TV/Film.
Do you offer Airbrush?
We have worked with a traditional airbrush in the past. However, with our experience, find that there are many other ways to achieve a long lasting, flawless finish to your skin. With the use of primers, foundations and makeup sealers you can get a precise and beautiful result that is long lasting. We recommend and use the Dior Airflash for those who are in need of the airbrush finish. We LOVE this product as it has an airbrush finish and can be easily customized for different skin needs.
I'm interested in hair extensions, do you work with them?
Yes, we are very experienced in working with hair extensions. If you are unsure what to order please don’t hesitate to ask and we can suggest the right fit for your desired look. If you are looking to purchase some for your wedding day, we recommend visiting Hair Unlimited in Mission Valley.
