Frequently Asked Questions (Before Booking)
How do I secure your services for my wedding?
The booking info will be sent digitally and all three documents are needed to hold the date and secure your artists:
1) The Contract
2) The Quote
3) The Retainer sent by an invoice after the quote is approved by both parties. If you are booking a date that is 60 days or less away, we will ask for a retainer payment in full less the gratuity (gratuity sent week of the wedding). If you are booking a wedding date 61 days out or further we will be issued a retainer for 50% of the wedding total, less gratuity (invoice for the remaining balance and gratuity will be sent when schedule is made 30-60 days before the wedding day).
Once those items are submitted and approved, you will have a reserved booking, and the date is yours!
Do you use airbrush foundation?
Yes, we TEMPTU s/b airbrush foundation. Every makeup artist on the team is trained in the industry standard HD airbrush foundation, TEMPTU Pro Airbrush Makeup. We also use traditional foundations like Estee Lauder Double Wear, MAC Face and Body, Dior Backstage, and Graftobian Pro Creme.
What is airbrush foundation?
Airbrush makeup is makeup sprayed onto the skin using an airbrush instead of being applied with sponges, brushes, fingers, or other methods. Airbrush makeup has become more popular with the advent of high-definition (HD) photography. Traditional powder or liquid based make-up can settle and appear in pores and wrinkles and be visible on HD film. As the makeup is sprayed on, it connects with the skin as millions of droplets of formula. The formula can create an even, sheer, natural appearance to the skin that, if applied properly for a natural look, can appear natural and non-heavy like traditional makeup. Airbrush makeup wears longer than traditional powder or liquid foundation, and is able to stay put upwards of 12–24 hours. It can be used to cover five o'clock shadows for men. Application wise, the technique is more sanitary than traditional makeup application due the artist never having to touch the skin. It's also faster, if done by a trained artist.
Are lashes included in the price?
Lashes are always included in the price for all services except Junior Bridesmaids and Flower girls. Brides and moms typically get a full cluster last application
Do you charge for travel?

What is in the touchup kit that I receive at my wedding?
Our Bride will receive one full sized HVH Lipstick in your color, mini lash glue, blotting papers, q-tips, beauty bag, and bobby-pins. We also carry inventory and sell our own brand of HVH Makeup & Hair Lipsticks, Lip Glosses, and Liquid Lips if you would like a secondary color or if any of your party would like their own lipstick.
Will my makeup and hair last all night?
YES! Our makeup and hairstyles are built to last! We use all waterproof and long-wearing makeup products. All of our hairstylists are trained to build a hairstyle that will withstand the days demands as well.
How do I book you or your team?
For weddings we require a contract, quote, and 50% retainer to secure your date. We are a group of 12 artists, and dates book out suddenly and unexpectedly, we recommend you book as early as possible if you are serious in securing your event!
Can I choose my artists?
Yes! We are one of the only team that offers this option! If you are booking makeup and hair, you will choose from 2 available artists, if you are booking just makeup or hair you may choose 1 artist.
Can I book a trial with your artists without booking my wedding date?
Due to our current demand, we are currently not offering this option unless the client is booked with a preferred planner.
If I complete 1 of the 3 items needed to book (contract, quote, deposit), will you hold my date or let me know if another client wants my date/time?
Unfortunately with the volume of inquiries and bookings we manage, we are not able to hold any dates or inform clients of other potential bookings on their date. The only way to secure the reservation is to successfully complete all 3 items.
How many people can you accommodate for my wedding?
We can accommodate parties of up to 50 based on our availability and timing.
How many artists will you bring to my wedding/event?
We book artists based on the demands of the wedding. Any party less than 4 makeup/hair packages will receive 1-2 artists, 5-7 packages in a party receives 2 artists, 9-11 packages in a party receives 3 artists, and 12-14 packages in a party receives 4 artists. Please inquire about parties 15 or more.
How long will it take you to do makeup and hair for my party? -or- What time will you need to start the day of my wedding?
We ask that you secure 6 hours of beauty time for your wedding day. The start time will be based on the time that you and your photographer decide you need to start your pictures.
Your contract states that “you cannot take services away from the quote, only add them.” What do I do if I am unsure of my totals yet?
As long as you meet the minimum set for you on your wedding date, we would recommend securing only the services you are positive on. This way you will not be financially responsible for any empty bookings. You may add on later if we still have artist availability to accomodate.
Can I add services to my quote later?
As long as we still have the availability, you absolutely may. Please let us know ASAP when you are ready to add services to your quote. We book out the day based on timing of the artists and services requested, so availability can change quickly and unexpectedly.
What if I do not know how I want my makeup and hair for my wedding? Will you help me?
We would love to help you! We will ask you questions based on your personal style, color palette, mood of the wedding, comfort level and taste. From there, we will make recommendations that will be flattering for your skin tone, hair type/color, eye shape, etc.
