Frequently Asked Questions
We typically allot 2 hours for your preview. During this time you will get to know your stylist and discuss any and all details about the style you have in mind. You will do at least one full hair style and full face makeup if that is what you are requesting (multiple looks may be tried if time allows). Please bring any inspiration photos you may have as well as any accessories you plan to wear (e.g. veil, clips, flowers, crowns). You will also go over your contract and your stylists will be able to answer any questions you may have.
We are happy to do a consultation over the phone prior to the event to discuss your desired look and answer any questions you may have. You are also welcome to send us inspiration photos of the look you hope to achieve as well as any other photos that may influence your style (e.g. photos of the dress, accessories).
We schedule 45 minute time slots per service.
For example, if a person were to have both hair and makeup done we would allow an hour and a half for both services to be completed. To ensure that everyone is done on time, we add a 30 min. cushion at the end of the schedule, during which time we are happy to do last minute touch ups and help with any final details.
We will work with you to create a detailed schedule that ensures that all of the services will be completed on time. We will then assign the appropriate number of stylists for the event. Typically this means one or two stylists, however if you have a large party or have an early finish time more stylists may be required.
Our makeup artists use professional, camera-ready products of their choosing which include (but are not limited to): MAC Cosmetics, TemptuPro, Smashbox, Tarte, Cinema Secrets, Chanel, Too Faced, NARS, Clinique, Makeup Forever, Morphe, Stila, NYX, Urban Decay, Benefit, Lorac, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Aeroblend and Belloccio.
* Concerns about a particular product or allergies to specific brands/ingredients should be addressed prior to your event.
Not all products come with a waterproof option. We are able to provide waterproof mascara, eyeliner, and glue for faux lashes. We do use primers and setting sprays to ensure that the rest of you makeup will last throughout the day.
Absolutely! If you have a favorite product or tool, feel free to bring it along.
Pictures are a wonderful source of inspiration and we do our absolute best to replicate what is shown. However, given that all people have different face, eye, and lip shapes as well as different coloring, we cannot guarantee that your final look will be identical to the picture shown (but it will certainly be very similar!)
On-location wedding venue touch-ups (after your services are complete) are available by request at a price of $100 per hour (1 hour minimum).
Once you have saved your date we will send you detailed tips and instructions for your big day!
Please send us a message or call Tuesday-Saturday 9-2pm PST at 707.241.3434.
To secure your date we require at 50% deposit (which is deducted from your total service cost) and a completed contract. We take Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Venmo and local checks.
If cancellations are made sixty days in advance, half of the initial 50% deposit will be refunded. After sixty days the deposit becomes non-refundable. This policy is to ensure that the time, staff and resources we assigned to your special day are securely in place.
Although tips are greatly appreciated, we prefer not to assume; therefore our prices do not include gratuity. When choosing to tip, the industry standard is typically 15 to 20% of your total service fee. However, in the case of large groups (8 or more) a 20% gratuity is automatically applied.
