Sanitation is our top priority! You'll see our team use freshly cleaned brushes and new disposables on each member of the bridal party.

What Are The Advantages of Airbrush Over Traditional Makeup Applications?

Airbrush foundation is a special foundation that is highly colorized & pigmented and is sprayed directly onto your skin using an airbrush pen and compressor. When done correctly, this is a beautiful application technique for special events where you need to look flawless.

Negative reviews of airbrush makeup are usually because someone had airbrush makeup applied incorrectly. When done incorrectly, airbrush makeup looks heavy, cakey and separate easily. When applied correctly, it looks like a second skin that lasts for hours.

12

Are You Able to Cover Tattoos?

Yes! Absolutely. We are experts at tattoo coverage and waterproofing your tattoo coverage. If you have a tattoo that needs to be covered, please email us a couple of photos of the tattoo you would like to cover and we can quote accordingly.

Please note that proper tattoo coverage can take as much time as an entire face, sometimes longer if the area you want to be covered is large. Tattoo coverage starts

at $100 and up.

Yes, we do not require you to book our team for both services. You can book us for just

makeup, just hair, or both. However, we prefer not to work with other hair and makeup

vendors if at all possible. We want your look to be cohesive and consistent

with the rest of your bridal party for photographs.

This hasn’t been an issue thus far, and we will try our absolute hardest to keep it that way. If there is an issue on the wedding day, please call our office immediately at 317-789-5166.

50

Do I Have to Pay for the Entire Balance or Can My Bridesmaids Pay Individually?

You are solely responsible for the contracted amount due to not being able to contract each attendant for their services.

52

What Type of Payment Methods Do You Accept?

All services are paid via online invoice. We accept major credit cards and ACH payments from your bank account via our online portal.

54

What Are Overtime Charges & When Are They Incurred?

Overtime charges come into effect when the artist/stylist is not done with your bridal party at the contracted “Service End Time” through no fault to the artist/stylist or the amount of time scheduled for them by our staff.

We allot plenty of time for them to do your party. These charges will be incurred if the end time is exceeded at the fault of the client & their guests. For example, if people aren’t ready when our team gets there, if there isn’t a steady flow of people ready to have their makeup/hair done.

Since there are instances where our artists need to do another wedding on the same day, running late may result in them being late to another wedding.
