Q: Should I wash my hair before my appointment?
A: You don’t need to unless you have oily hair; then it’s necessary. It is true about what they say about day old hair. It stays better. In the end it is what you feel comfortable with. Please have hair dry before my arrival unless discussed receiving a blow-dry.

Q: Should I Condition or use any products in my hair?
If necessary to comb out hair, then yes. But do not put conditioner at your scalp. This will only make hair too soft and silky, and will not hold up as well.

Q: What should I do to prepare if I have shorter hair or a blow-dry style?
If you’re looking for a blow-dry style, either for short, long or even curly hair, please have your hair washed and still wet, so it can be dried and styled right away. No worries if the hair begins to dry before I get to dry it. We can simply wet the hair down a little.

Q: What if my skin is sensitive to make-up?
The make-up I use is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. If you have any real concerns or allergic to many products feel free to bring your products that work on your skin that make you feel most comfortable.

Q: Will I need to touch up anything?
A: If your oily I suggest a compact or blotting papers. A simple lip gloss for your lips for touch up for later on in the night is a plus too. If you might need more I am available for for touch-ups priced by the hour. Lip gloss is available for purchase the day of your event.

Q: What if I have a certain makeup product that I prefer to use?
Not a problem. Just have them available that day.

Q: Would it help if I brought some pictures?
Absolutely. Pictures for hair and make-up are great. Although I am very good at understanding what you’re thinking and taking into consideration what will look best on you. Pictures can say exactly what you desire and make sure we are on the same page.

Q: How soon should I start to get ready?
Well, we have to take into consideration if you plan on having pictures taken before hand, and if so, the location of the photo shoot, travel time and getting dressed all should be factored in. Hair and makeup for Bride only usually books out an hour and half of time. We recommend to give yourself no more than 45-60 minutes from when your hair and makeup are done till the ceremony time. Of course this will depend on what package you are doing with your photographer. Through the years we notice it seems the more time you have, the more nerves come out. You need to be as relaxed as possible and the day should just flow.

Q: When should I have my hair colored before the wedding?
Depending on when you come to Key West, I usually recommend 7-10 days before hand. That way it’s not last minute and if there is something you need to have changed, I can also recommend someone locally in the Key West area if it would be more convenient. If that is not an option or you just are not happy with your hair cut or color please contact me and we can make an appointment for you.

Q: My eyebrows are pretty full. Should I have them cleaned up?
Yes. this will open your eyes up and your make-up will look even better. Please do this a few times so you get used to which ever hair removal procedure you use. Some people have different reactions. Please research out a good technician in your area. Eyebrow arching is an art and shouldn’t be taken lightly.

Q: How long will it take to get ready?
It’s your big day! We don’t want to rush. You deserve all my attention. To provide ample time for the look you deserve for your hair and make-up will take about 1 1/2hr. Any additional services for family and friends can be determined at a later time.

Q: What should I do to myself to prepare for your arrival?
A: Have your hair blown dried and ready to be curled or put up. Your face should be cleansed and moisturized. Try to wear a tank top or something easily taken off that won’t affect your hair or make-up when you take it off. Button up collared shirts tend to ruffle the back of the hair. So we prefer a loose open neck shirt or tank top.

Q: What are the benefits to using airbrushing?
Airbrush is incredible!!  I use a waterproof formula so it will hold up to humidity and tears. It is extremely lightweight so, you don’t feel that you even have anything on. Which is exactly what you want especially if you have a summer wedding. You will look flawless in pictures. This is a definite favorite with photographers! This makeup is put on as light or as heavy as needed. So, weather you are a bride who wants top be as natural as can be or if you have problem skin you will be happy.

Q: How is airbrushing applied and what exactly does it do?
Airbrushed make-up sprays on. A spray that mists out foundation that suddenly makes your skin seem flawless. It’s actually thousands of tiny little dots so your skin glows through. It’s never a heavy or cakey finish or texture. It is as natural as you want with unbelievable coverage. It lays on top of your skin and fills in any flaws, instead of accentuating them. Airbrush make-up is silicone based, non-toxic and hypoallergenic. It’s also sanitary – more so than using sponges or other make-up applicators that germs can be attracted to.

Your makeup will stand up to sweat, tears, hugs and all the kisses in between.

Airbrushing allows the skin to breath so it feels like your not wearing any makeup at all and gives you the “no makeup” look. It can be used on the body, ideal for chest and arms so you’re evenly matched from your forehead to your fingertips. Its gives you a matte, pore-less finish so you never look shiny. Traditional foundation is available – but try airbrush, you will love it!
Rest assured while you’re receiving all those hugs and kisses from your friends and relatives, you’ll still look as fresh as you did after your first kiss. Imagine that!The last thing you need to worry about is your make-up wearing off on your wedding day. Airbrush make-up will last until you wash your face. So you can do as much cheek to cheek dancing as you’d like without worrying about your make-up rubbing off.

Airbrush is a revolutionary make-up technique with precision control. It is used to create flawless and more radiant skin tones in a way that brushes and sponges can’t. It gives longer lasting results, natural looking illuminating skin with a luxurious velvety finish. You can wear this make-up for up to 16 hours and it will not come off until you wash your face. Airbrushing holds up extremely well to humid conditions. Because of these characteristics, it is recommended for brides and other active individuals. Airbrush make-up provides a camera-ready texture.
