We use some of the best and latest products when it comes to hair styling & hair care.

ORIBE, Ouai, & Sebastian are our main loves at the moment but we are constantly evolving, growing, and keeping up with the latest and greatest trends & products.

Do you do airbrushing (airbrush makeup)?

YES! We airbrush and airbrushing is included in some of our Bridal Packages. We use Temptu & Iwata compressors & airbrush guns. We also carry silicone-based, water-based, and alcohol-based airbrush makeup from brands like Temptu, Kett Cosmetics, Dinair, & Camera Ready Cosmetics. We are always eager to try new airbrushing companies but these are some of our favs. Depending on your needs we can use what is best during your service.

Are you certified or licensed?

All of our hairstylists are licensed cosmetologists in the state of CA and all of our makeup artists are either licensed cosmetologists, estheticians, or have trained with a reputable makeup school or company such as MAC, MAKEUP FOR EVER, or MUD.

We strictly adhere to the CA Board of Cosmetology's guidelines for cleanliness & hygiene. We wash our hands prior to every service and carry hand sanitizer with us everywhere we go. All tools & implements are disinfected using the proper disinfectant solution (Barbecide, Isopropyl Alcohol, Bleach etc...). All makeup brushes/tools/palettes are cleaned and disinfected prior to services. All makeup is sanitized prior to any and all services. BeautySoClean is basically our best-friend!

I have an allergy or skin complication, can I still get my makeup done?

You should let us know prior to any service any skin complications or allergies. If you aren't sure or you think you may be allergic to a product or ingredient(s) in products, we perform a patch test. Even if you just have sensitive skin, we take extra precautions like using products that are made with your skin type in mind. That's why we take our time to get to know you and ask questions like "What skin type do you have?" or "Do you have any allergies?" prior to your services. Your health is very important to us and we take your wellness very seriously! We want you to look your best always and be healthy while you're at it! ;) 

Why don't you list your prices on your services page?

It's not that we don't want to list prices, we want to be as transparent as possible and be able to serve you the best and fairest way. We believe it's unfair to charge everyone the same prices when everyone is different and require different services in different places. When booking an appointment we ask exactly what, where, and when so we can give you a price that is fair for you and us. We know it isn't the easiest way but we want to do right by you and give you quality services at the best price.

When is payment due?

A 50% deposit is required when booking, this secures your wedding or event date/appointment. The remaining balance is listed on your services agreement.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Various forms of payment are excepted and we also provide *6 month interest free financing. Forms of payment accepted are American Express, Visa, MasterCard, & Discover credit or debit cards, PayPal, & Zelle. 

*Financing is subject to credit approval and is provided by PayPal Credit.
