- When should I book my Hair and Makeup Artist? -
There is no hard and fast rule as to how far in advance you should book your makeup artist. Although many Wedding blogs and magazines will tell you to book your Hair and Makeup Artist as soon as you have confirmed your date with your venue, around a year in advance is the norm. Chloe’s diary is open to take bookings up to 1 year ahead at any one time but always send a message to see if she can help, she will accommodate last minute bookings if she has the availability!
- How do I book? -
If you are interested in booking services then please send Chloe your details. There are a number of ways to do this: you can complete the contact form or email her at email@example.com. Please include your name, bridal party numbers, the services you require, your wedding date and your location/venue. Once Chloe has received this information she is able to check that your date is available, provide all the information on booking and send over pricing.
Please allow at least 24 hours for a response to all enquiries, Chloe will do her best to get back to everyone within 48 hours where possible.
-How do I secure my Wedding date? -
A £50 non-refundable booking fee secures your wedding booking and holds your date. Payment can be made by Bank transfer and you must ensure you use your initials and wedding date as reference.
*Please note, a booking is not confirmed without receipt of a completed booking form and cleared booking fee payment. The retainer is non-refundable and non-transferable. Chloe operates on a first come first served basis so if the booking fee remains unpaid then your date can be given to another Bride. Please do not make payment before confirming that your date is available and that Chloe is able to accommodate your booking. You don’t need to know what style you want in order to book your wedding date, this can be discussed with Chloe upon booking and at your Trial.
- How much does wedding day hair and makeup cost? -
Pricing is provided upon enquiry. Prices are clear and fixed and do not change depending on the length of your hair, the amount of makeup applied or the style you choose.
- Do I need a trial? -
Your wedding day isn't the time to find out if you and your makeup artist aren't on the same page regarding the look you want, or to find out that you have an allergic reaction to a product. While it is not a necessity, it is very much recommended to have a trial as you have the opportunity to meet Chloe in person and discuss what you do and don’t like for your big day. It gives you the chance to ‘test run’ how the look wears and confirm you are absolutely happy before the day itself. Knowing your hair and makeup is tried and tested avoids unnecessary stresses on the morning of your wedding.
Trials can also be provided for all members of the bridal party upon request.
Makeup trials are typically available Monday to Friday.
Weekend and evening availability is very limited and not guaranteed.
- How long before the wedding should I have my trial? -
Chloe advises Brides to have a trial on average about 3-6 months before the wedding. If you are requiring a weekend appointment, these are only offered January-March due to limited weekend availability as Weddings begin to commence.
It is possible to have a trial much earlier, or even closer to the wedding date if you are a last-minute booking, however, in order to best prep the skin for your big day and allow any new skincare regimes and products the optimum time for best result, it is advisable to have your trial sooner rather than later.
- What if I’m not sure what I want? -
Please don’t worry if you aren’t sure of the look you’re wanting - many people aren’t! It is, however, good to have some pictures collected of styles and looks that you like so you can start by discussing these with Chloe and build a picture of what you like. Please bear in mind that your particular ‘look’ will be totally unique to you and will depend on your colouring, face shape, hair type, skin type etc.
If you’re still unsure having looked at lots of images online, Chloe is able to create a look for you based on the in depth consultation prior to beginning any hair/make up services.
- How long will my Trial last? -
A hair and makeup trial will include a full consultation and will last anywhere between 2-4 hours. This allows plenty of time to work together to achieve your desired Bridal look. Please permit a little extra time where possible, in case your trial does take a little longer than anticipated.
- Who should I bring to my Trial? -
It’s important that when choosing who to bring to your Trial you are selecting those with opinions that you trust and will bring a calm and positive atmosphere to proceedings. Bridesmaids, Mums and friends can all offer great advice and help you decide on your look, however a maximum of 2 others are permitted at any one time in order to avoid confusion and additional pressure for the Bride.
- Will you travel to me? -
Chloe is committed to ensuring your experience runs as smoothly and seamlessly as possible. As part of this commitment Chloe will travel to your preferred location for both the trial and on the day of the wedding (travel charges apply).
- Will you have enough time and an can you provide services for the whole party? -
With experience of many weddings, Chloe is more than comfortable with working to the necessary time restraints of a busy wedding morning.
Generally, you will discuss this at your trial in order for Chloe to ensure that she is happy she has enough time to perform the services that have been booked to carry out. Dependent on the number in your bridal party she may need to bring an additional artist with her. When this occurs, she will personally select and arrange for this person to be in attendance. Chloe has a team of artists she uses frequently and has approved the quality and standard of their work.
An additional artist will not be in attendance unless specifically stated by Chloe when numbers require, so should you want a dedicated artist for your Bridal party please do make this clear. Assistants can be hired at your own request (where Chloe does not feel it is necessary) for a minimum charge of £150. This must be pre-arranged with Chloe and the cost for this will be added to your final balance.
- What products do you use? -
Chloe uses a variety of brands and products, with her kit containing a diverse collection for use on different skin and hair types. The products she uses on you will differ depending on your needs and requirements and you will discuss in detail your hair/skin type as well as your desired look at the consultation stage.
Brands stocked within Chloe’s hair and makeup kits include: Becca, ByTerry, Charlotte Tilbury, Hourglass, Laura Mercier, Rodial, Tarte, Tom Ford, Too Faced, Kenra Professional and Moroccan Oil.
- Do You Supply Lashes? -
Yes, lashes are included in every quote so there aren’t any hidden fees along the way. Chloe prefers to use individual lashes for her Brides in order to create a bespoke lash finish that sits as naturally to your lash line as possible.
If you have any specific requests regarding lashes please don’t hesitate to let Chloe know and she will accommodate your request where possible.
