WEDDING HAIR BOOKING FAQ
CAN YOU COME TO MY HOME, HOTEL OR VENUE?
Absolutely! I prefer going on-site! It’s much much easier for you and your party to be where you already need to be. As long as there is adequate space for mine and the makeup artist(s) set up.
I DON'T LIVE IN YOUR AREA, DO YOU TRAVEL?
Heck yes I do! .50/mile beyond 40 mile radius of: Grand Rapids, MI +Palm Springs, CA
Locations beyond 150 miles may require hotel accommodations for the night before as well. Beyond 400 miles or out of state/country…let’s chat. If you think this is crazy…it’s not! I've been out of the state and country for weddings, and I LOVE IT! Take me with you on your destination wedding or elopement! Visit The Elopement Co for complete packages.
DO I NEED A TRIAL?
No. However I recommend one! Besides the obvious, the appointment allows us to meet in person, talk about the big day and I get to learn about you and your love story! If you are from out of town and our schedules don't meet up in the months leading up to your wedding date, a trial can be done the week of the wedding in most cases. Have no fear or worries! This is quite common for out of town weddings or brides. Trials the week of are done about 25% of the time and I have never had an issue.
DO YOU DO GROUP DISCOUNTS OR DISCOUNTS FOR SUNDAYS OR WEEDAY WEDDINGS?
Unfortunately, I do not discount my services.
DO YOU HAVE DIFFERENT PRICING FOR HOLIDAYS?
Certain holidays and holiday weekends, if I’m accepting bookings, do require a holiday fee and/or higher minimum. Please inquire.
WHAT IF SOME OF MY BRIDESMAIDS WANT TO DO THEIR OWN HAIR, CAN YOU JUST DO MINE?
I require a minimum headcount of 5 for Friday + Saturday weddings, and 3 head minimum for Sundays. No minimum for Mon-Thurs. Although I think it’s important for everyone’s hair and makeup to be professionally done, I totally understand there is a budget! Please discuss my pricing with your girls. Sometimes, to make it easier for your girls’ budget, brides will ‘gift’ all or some of the cost for professional hair and makeup services.
IS THERE DIFFERENT PRICING FOR CERTAIN STYLES OR HAIR LENGTHS?
No matter the style, up or down, pricing is the same. The only difference is when the hair length is above the shoulders that only requires a blow out and/or light hot tool styling with no pinning. As well as girls under the age of 12 years old.
DO YOU CHARGE EXTRA TO PUT IN MY CLIP-IN EXTENSIONS OR PLACE MY VEIL/HAIRPIECE?
Nope! In fact…I encourage clip in extensions in some cases. Especially with today's hairstyle trends requiring lots of hair!
WHEN DO I PAY YOU AND HOW DO YOU ACCEPT PAYMENT?
Cash, check, credit or debit. Your booking retainer is due when you book to secure your date. Your trial is due on or before your trial appointment. The remainder is due before the wedding date. You will receive an invoice within a week or two prior, once we confirm a final headcount, to be paid in one lump sum. If your girls are paying for their own hair services, please collect money from them and pay me in full. If paying with check or cash, I can collect the morning of, however it will be collected and counted BEFORE any services begin.
