Wedding Day Hair and Makeup Investment

Your wedding day hair and makeup is so much more than just making you look pretty, and choosing the right vendor shouldn't be a stressful or time consuming process.  You work hard for your money and deserve to relax knowing that you are investing in both how you look as well as your peace of mind.  I have been doing weddings for ten years, and I'm experienced in both the "pretty" side of things as well as the business of brides.  When you book Beauty By Sue for your wedding day, you get a stylist that not only makes you look and feel amazing but also knows how important the process leading up to the wedding day is.  From the very first email to the very last dance, you are in the best of hands.

What's Included?

Makeup-

Trial Run: After a thorough consultation to asses your skin's needs, your face will be prepped with skincare to ensure your makeup is both natural looking as well as long lasting.    

 

Cost: $125

Wedding Day: All the same skincare used at your trial will be used on the wedding day unless adjustments were necessary due to how the makeup held up after your trial.  Foundation is tailored to your needs for a truly flawless look that lasts all day.  The bride's makeup application also includes false lashes if requested, and bridesmaids can add these on too for $25. The bride's makeup includes a deluxe touch-up kit which includes a full size lipstick or gloss for refreshing her look during the day.  A fully stocked kit with high end professional products to accommodate ALL skintones is with me on every wedding day.  You are not required to bring any makeup at all outside of a touch up lipstick (bridesmaids). 

Cost:  $225/brides.  $115/additional attendants  

Hairstyling:

Trial Run: Each look will be designed to work with your hair's natural texture and shape rather than against it, and if items such as filler buns or extensions are required to achieve your dream hair we will discuss this as well as the additional costs at this time.  Extensions are available for purchase, and we will color match you right in the studio.  If you are bringing your own clip in extensions, there is no additional charge for you to have them placed in your hair prior to styling.  If you choose to change your hairstyle at a later date, a second trial will be required at the same cost, so please plan accordingly.

Cost: $125

Wedding Day:  High end styling products are used to ensure that the look is long lasting and non-damaging to the hair.  Please note that hairstyling services will be performed on the wedding day only on clean, dry hair in order to stay within the set timeframe and keep your wedding day running smoothly.  

Cost: $225/bride, $100/additional attendants, $50/flowergirls

All adult styling is charged the same price regardless of length or hairstyle chosen.  Junior or flowergirl styles include all down or half up with a single braid.  Updo's will be charged at the adult rate regardless of age.  Any pinning of accessories for the flowergirls not receiving hairstyling services will be charged the same as a styling fee.  Any bridal party members requesting the use of their own clip in hair extensions will be charged an additional $50 for the installation, curling, and styling of the extensions in addition to their hairstyle.

Post Contracted Add On Services:  You are welcome to add services to your contract where available for an increased rate.  This applies to the addition of hairstyling services, makeup application, additional artists (if available), as well as day-of add-on's if the schedule allows.  Increased rate is an additional $25 to the original contracted price but may be subject to change based on availability.  To avoid the additional rate increase, it is highly suggested to have all headcounts finalized prior to contracting services.
