Prepare for your Wedding Day Makeup Session

  • Arrive with a clean face:

    • Please wash your face prior to your session (your Maven will moisturize).

  • Prepare your skin ahead of time for best results:

    • Use a premium skin care routine for your skin type (wash, toner, moisturize & SPF) for at least 60 days leading up to the big day (get help finding a customized skin care routine here).

    • Exfoliate 2-3 times per week (for most skin).

    • If you suffer from dry skin, it’s important to get on a high quality moisturizing routine- please schedule a consultation.

    • We recommend you do a #30daywaterchallenge leading up to your wedding!

  • Sensitive skin

    • We use premium non-allergenic products, but please specify any skin sensitivities in your preview survey.

    • Please be sure to tell your Maven of any allergies (includes bridal party).

  • Bridal Party/MOB/Guest Makeup

    • If your bridal party/guests opted out of a makeup preview, please have each person bring a clear, front facing makeup look.

  • Purchasing Makeup (Customized Foundation, etc)

    • Your Maven will provide all tools and products needed for the day!

    • You may purchase products- let us know what you’re interested in keeping during your preview so we’re prepared with the product on your wedding day.

    • A favorite for brides is our custom blend foundation- your Maven will create a professional foundation that is blended to match your skin color for you to keep ($50). Please let us know ahead of your preview if you’d like this service!

Prepare for your Wedding Day Hair Session

  • Arrive with clean hair:

    • You should wash and dry your hair the night before or morning of your wedding.

    • If you would prefer that we blow it out, let us know so we can add the service and extra time to your booking.

    • Your stylist will use product to ‘dirty up’ your hair if necessary, so no need to worry about your hair being ‘too clean’!

  • Curly hair:

    • If you want a style with your natural curl pattern, please wash and air dry before your session.

    • If you want a style with a more finished curl, then please blowout your hair prior to your glam session. If you would prefer that we blow it out, let us know so we can add the service and extra time to your booking.

  • Hair Extensions

    • Please make us aware if you're using hair extensions as in most cases we need to plan additional time.

  • Bridal Party/MOB/Guest Hair

    • If your bridal party/guests opted out of a hair preview, please have each person bring their inspiration images that show the front, back and side views of the look (pay attention to details such as part or no part, loose or slicked back etc.).

Timing your Sessions:

  • Each individual service will take 30-60 minutes, depending on hair length, thickness & desired style.

  • Additional time may be added if your hair needs to be set in curls before styling or if you’d like us to blow your hair out before styling, etc.

  • Prior to your wedding, your Maven will create a schedule for you and your bridal party’s services, please be on time. Our Mavens use the Timekick app to keep sessions stress free!

  • Please be mindful of distractions such as cell phone use and interruptions during services.
