Why do you suggest a trial for special event styling?
My studio is a place where the client is able to express her wishes in a relaxed and private setting. I won't hurry anyone who is wanting to find the perfect design. I practice the desired hair and makeup designs so that any design adjustments or changes in skin or hair care may be made well before the big day.
With time at a premium on any wedding or special event day, it is important to have the style and beauty plan figured out in advance so the big day runs more smoothly.
How long does the makeup last?
Wear is different for everyone and is based on many external factors.
The main known factors which can alter the life of any makeup or hair design are:
-a person's regularly practiced
level of skin or hair care
-bear hugs from loved ones
-eating food and drinking beverages
-tears of joy
-a gust of wind
-ambient temperature of location
-a person's body chemistry
-a person's level of perspiration
-any number of skin types/ conditions which can cause a breakdown in even the most waterproof of makeups.
There is no exact answer to this question, but I use the most effective techniques and products that I can find to address any of these difficulties, as well as recommend ways to keep the makeup and hairstyle intact for as long as possible.
What are touch-ups?
If you are concerned that your hair and makeup lasts and looks perfect in all your photos,
I offer a reasonably priced touch-up service to maintain any hair and makeup designs that I have performed.
Who is welcome at the trial?
I have a small place, therefore I think it is best to have only the ones with appointments for services in my small studio.
