FIRST CONFIRMED FIRST SERVED POLICY
Bookings can only be confirmed once a deposit/booking fee has been received. All deposits/booking fees are non refundable or transferable. The deposit/booking fee is your booking retainer which means we turn away all other jobs during your appointment time.

MAKING A BOOKING - DEPOSITS

IF YOU CANCEL YOUR BOOKING
In the unfortunate event that you have to cancel your booking any payments you have made are strictly non-refundable, and non-transferable. If we book you in for hair or makeup it means we cannot book other clients and it's likely we have turned away other business. Due to our high demand for bookings, we are regularly booked months in advance.
IF YOU CHANGE YOUR BOOKING
After paying your deposit/booking fee - If someone decides to pull out of their service, the total amount quoted will remain the same and no refund will be offered, you have the option to replace them with someone else. Changes to your booking by adding another person onto your original booking can only be accepted if time / resources allow on your wedding day and we will require prior notice and payment due at the specified time. Adding extra people on the day, without prior warning, may jeopardies the quality of our work or delay the ceremony.
HAIR & MAKEUP TRIAL
Hair and makeup trials are recommended to make sure you’re going to look perfect on your big day. We do one look during the trial and complete it to perfection. 1.30H for makeup, 1.30H for hairstyling).
A second trial can be booked subject to availability, the same charges as your first trial will apply. Trials are not compulsory but are recommended, without a trial we will not accept responsibility if a chosen style or look does not work on a wedding day or there are circumstances where there is a mismatch in styles, approach, or expectations, and a refund will not be offered. 7 days prior notice must be given if you wish to cancel or reschedule your trial date. In the likely event that we have turned away alternative bookings to accommodate your trial, you will be charged. We reserve the right to cancel a booking following a trial, without a refund of the deposit, in circumstances where there is a mismatch in styles, approach, expectations and/or the client is uncooperative, not open to suggestions or makes any member of our team feel uncomfortable. It is advisable that you familiarize yourself with our work portfolio and ensure you are confident our capabilities and style are appropriate before securing a booking.
Parking must be provided for and paid for by the client. Our hair and makeup artists carry a lot of heavy equipment so valet parking at all hotels is a must and will need to be arranged prior to the wedding date please.
If you would like to reduce the time taken, we can add extra artists for an additional fee + travel fee costs.
IN THE EVENT OF DELAYS EXPERIENCED ON THE DAY
If we experience unforeseen delays which are out of our control refunds will not be given in the event that one or more services are forfeited as a result and no compensation will be offered if we overrun. If you are aware of factors, which could delay or hinder our journey, such as diversions, road closures, speed restrictions, issues etc. please advise us as soon as possible so we can factor this into our route. No refund or compensation will be offered for delays caused by other wedding vendors, guests, or members of the bridal party. A minimum of 50 minutes will be allocated for hair or makeup application per person. If you suspect any member of your bridal party may pose as a challenge in any way, they are encouraged to have a trial to avoid potential delays on the day.
CLIENT OBLIGATIONS ON THE WEDDING DAY
Please ensure every member of your party is aware of timings on the day and that they need to be, and remain, available. We request that all parties cooperate on the day of the booking which includes being ready at the scheduled time for hair and makeup, and not eating whilst getting makeup done. This will ensure we run on time and there is no delay. Please ensure all other instructions provided to you prior to the booking are followed, e.g. to make sure hair is washed and dried straight the night before. Please ensure that our team will be working in a suitable environment with adequate lighting, by a window is best so we have natural light. electricity points, and hand washing facilities and a large high table for our products. You are to inform us of any allergies or reactions prior to, or after, any makeup application or hair styling. If no known allergies are stated we cannot be held liable for any reactions, injuries, losses, damage, costs, claims and actions that may occur to you or any other member of your party. Prior to having makeup applied or hair styled please ensure you and your party are prepared, to avoid leaving the chair whilst we are working. Please ensure teeth are cleaned, you have been to the toilet and contact lenses are applied (if applicable), before sitting in the chair. Also make sure you are make-up free, (we will prep your skin.) On a wedding day, time is of the essence. Please do not sit children/babies on your lap whilst having your hair styled or make-up applied. For their own safety please ensure that children are kept away from our styling tools and products at all times. Styling irons are extremely hot, and hazardous, and we will not be held responsible if a child is injured as a result of the parent or care not being present. We are not obliged to stay if we have completed our work before the estimated completion time. We may refuse to follow any instructions (including posing for photographs) that are outside the scope of our makeup and hairstyling services.
A 20eur additional blow out fee will be assessed to anyone who arrives to their stylist on the wedding day with wet hair. This will throw off the timeline also, due to extra time blowing out the hair.
All brushes, tools, and makeup products are sanitized between every makeup application. Makeup products used are hypoallergenic. Any allergies and/or skin conditions should be reported by the client to the makeup artist prior to application and, if need be, a sample test of makeup may be performed on the skin to test reaction.
ALLERGIES AND HYGIENE
Unless a list of ingredients of potential reactive ingredients are presented to me before the makeup application, we are not responsible for any reactions to makeup. If you or your bridal party are suffering from any type of contagious illness including, but not limited to, conjunctivitis, eye sties/cysts, cold sores, open wounds/cuts on the face and neck, staph infection, head lice, or a flu or other contagious illness, I need to be informed as a matter of urgency and reserve the right to refuse service of any infectious person. This is a precaution taken in order to ensure non-contamination of my kit and brushes, despite the fact all items are sanitized between clients.
