HAIR & MAKEUP PREP

​These notes apply to all having Hair and OR Makeup services to ensure the day runs to schedule.

  • All having hairstyling please wash hair the day prior

  • Wash twice with shampoo, using minimal conditioner only through the ends, and rinse with cold water to enhance shine

  • Make sure hair is clean and 100% dry on the day ready for styling. We cannot use heat tools on wet hair and do not allow extra time for drying wet hair

  • If your hair tends to be dry you can apply a small amount of product such as a leave-in conditioner or product you know works well in your hair to reduce frizz only through the mid-lengths and ends

  • If your hair tends not to hold curl well, apply a small amount of mousse through hair from ends to roots when wet

  • Please notify me if anyone having their hair styled has very thick or curly hair or are planning to wear extensions as this takes extra time

  • Semi-permanent and temporary hair extensions are available for installation with one month's notice for anyone wanting extra volume or length

  • Sending through a photo of your current hair and an image of a style or two you have in mind can be very helpful and save time on the day

  • Have ready at least one reference image of hair/makeup you like preferably with similar hair color and texture to your own or a photo of how you have had your hair styled in the past.

  • Keep in mind how you would like your hair to frame your face as this is the part you will see most. It is a good idea to play around with different parts and think about how much hair you might like to keep out to frame your face if you are having an upstyle. You may need to arrange a haircut with some front layers to achieve the best style for you.

Please pass this information on to all having hairstyling for the day of your event.
