what services do you offer? Do you do make up?
On site professional hair services for brides and editorials. No, I am not a make up artist, however, I would love to recommend talented artists who I have worked with.
where are you located?
I am currently located in the Charleston SC area and travel all over for my brides and editorials. Travel and lodging fees may apply. Please contact me for a custom quote.
If you are a destination stylist, how can we schedule a trial?
Depending on your wedding destination, we may be able to schedule a trial for when I will be in the area. We can absolutely try to schedule your hair trial on the same day as your make up trial. If a trial does not work out prior to your wedding week, a great option would be to do a brief run through of your wedding day hair style the day before your wedding and then do a style change for your rehearsal dinner.
Additional travel fees may apply
I have a large bridal party, do you work with other artists?
Yes. I can comfortably style 9 ladies by myself. If the bridal party is larger than 10 and there is a short amount of getting ready time, I will try and find an assistant to help prep the hair. It is not a guarantee that i will be able to find an assistant, therefore bride may be responsible for outsourcing another stylist to help with the party. Additional fees apply for the assistant.
if the number from my bridal contract changes, am i still responsible for paying those services?
I totally get it. I get this question all of the time. I will work with my brides as best i can but minimums and contracts are set for a reason. if one bridesmaid can not make the wedding then my answer is no, i will not hold you to pay for that service. Say 3 people back out for some reason, then yes you would be responsible for keeping to the contract quote and paying for those services.
It also helps to create a day of timeline and i would need to know a final head count one month prior to the wedding day as i may need to add an assistant to help if you are adding services, or i would need to let the assistant know that i would no longer need their assistance.
Can i schedule a hair trial before i sign a contract?
i do not hold dates or schedule trials until after the deposit is received and contract is signed. i receive multiple inquiries for the same dates and it would not be fair to those other brides.
What if I wanted to do touch ups or 2 looks on my wedding day?
Touch ups are based on an hourly rate. If you wanted me to stay to change your hair style after your ceremony, the cost will be an additional $250.
how does creating a day-of wedding timeline of services work?
My approach is easy. Updos go first. Half up hair styles are second. All down with curls is last. The thought process behind this is that each style will last the longest this way. If moms would like a blowout they can either come with wet hair or I can use a spray bottle, depending on if they want a full blowout or just alittle sprucing. I estimate about 30 min per person/style.
Brides, I find that if I style your hair second to last in the roration and then you move over to make up, that works best!
I'm ready to book! How do I go about confirming my wedding day with you?
Please fill out the Contact form and add as many details as you can. Also, I love when Brides send me inspiration photos of the hair style they want and the vibe of their wedding. Plus I love seeing wedding dress photos :) Based on your wedding destination and details, I will prepare a contract for you. A non-refundable deposit is due at the time of signing the contract. I do accept checks and Venmo.
Voila, the date is yours!
Can I pay you before my wedding day?
Yes! Your wedding day goes by so fast, you don’t want to hassle with paying your vendors. So, if everyone is paying for themselves, please let the ladies know to pay immediately after they have had their hair styled. If you, the Bride, are paying for everyone as a gift, you can 100% pay the week or even night before. Everyones hair style is the same cost so this makes it easy. Balance can be paid by check or Venmo, or cash on the wedding day. I do accept credit card payments, additional fees apply.
