WHERE ARE WE LOCATED?
We are located in the destination wedding capital, gorgeous Santa Barbara. We are happy to travel up and down the California coast for our brides.
MAKEUP & HAIR TRIALS
Although not required, we highly recommend and hair and/or makeup trial. This gives you an opportunity to see your vision come to life, which will help to ease your mind on the day of. Bringing images for inspiration help to convey the overall look and feel of your bridal beauty vision. We also recommend images of your dress as well as images of yourself in formal makeup that you have liked or disliked in the past for reference.
WHEN TO SCHEDULE THE TRIAL
We suggest scheduling a trial within 3 months of the big day. If you are a destination bride that won’t be in town until the few days leading up to the wedding, we suggest scheduling a trial before your rehearsal. This way your hair will be prepped for the following day and you will look your best for your rehearsal.
HOW LONG DOES THE TRIAL TAKE?
The trail generally takes around an hour and a half. We typically work on makeup and hair simultaneously, both during the trial and on the day of unless otherwise specified.
WHERE DO YOU CONDUCT TRIALS?
We offer many options for trials. We have a studio space within the Soiree Center located at 1834 Bath St. in downtown Santa Barbara. We can also come to you at any home, AirBNB, or hotel at no additional charge.
CAN I SCHEDULE MY TRIAL ON THE DAY OF MY ENGAGEMENT SESSION?
Yes, however we do not generally recommend this. An engagement session traditionally has a more casual vibe than the wedding day look and therefore the hair and makeup will be more casual based on the weather, location, wardrobe, etc…
We recommend 30 mins. per person for makeup and 45 mins. per person for hair with and hour allocated for the bride. Please note that we typically work on the bride’s hair and makeup simultaneously.
We will bring in a second team if necessary based on the needs of the timeline and the size of the party. If you specifically want to keep your timeline very short the day of, we need to know ahead of time in order to secure a secondary team of stylists.
Travel within 40 miles of Santa Barbara is complimentary. Travel beyond 40 miles from Santa Barbara is billed at a rate of $.50 per mile, per stylist.
