Thank you AWH brides!

What is required to reserve services?

We keep things simple at AWH!

At Artistic Wedding Hair & Makeup, due to bridal demand, our minimum booking is (8) services (not # of people) and your choice in services of hairstyle and/or wedding make-up. This allows every bride to customize her wedding hair and wedding makeup needs.  Brides may request wedding party services for bridesmaid hairstyles and bridesmaid makeup. In other words, bride services are not required.

The trial artist performs (8) services on wedding day to fit a typical get ready time prep. We provide an additional artist with 14 services at no extra fee.  If you have less than 14 services; no worries--we can provide a customized quote for an additional artist OR if you simply desire reduced prep time on your special wedding day. 

NO wedding deposit required until 100% trial satisfaction!

We are a unique wedding beauty vendor that will courtesy hold your wedding date!  A bride simply needs to schedule a trial date as an equitable exchange of "no" upfront deposit. Weddings booked 6-12 months in advance...are required to trial (5) months before the wedding date.  If a bride prefers no trial session; a 20% deposit reserves the wedding date.  With 100% trial satisfaction, $200 non-refundable deposit  -- is fully credited to the wedding balance.

Why do we not require a deposit before the trial?  We insist you LOVE the trial session BEFORE you contract with us. Don't worry- from the time you book until your trial-- the wedding date is reserved exclusively for you --and for NO DEPOSIT.  

What happens IF another bride wants MY wedding date?

We will notify you and to keep your date reserved...Submit the trial fee in advance as your commitment to move forward with your trial to experience the beautiful results!   That's it!

Payment terms?

Wedding balance is payable (2) weeks before event date.

Payment Options:
1. Zelle (App)--safe and secure--no fee.
2. Pay Pal - credit or debit. Pay Pal handling fee 3.5%.

Every bride final approves her personalized invoice (fees & artist schedule based on her returned contract to us).  No surprises!  

What makes us unique?

Very few vendors have our successful wedding beauty credentials-- 30+ years in the beauty business!  

In a recent survey of wedding beauty competitors, only 50%  (nation's #1 website) responded to initial inquiries for wedding prices. Shocking, isn't it! 

First of all, avoid a wedding vendor who does not make YOU a #1 priority --or, that lack of wedding work ethic, will continue to be your wedding experience. With today's technology; there is really no excuse.

Artistic Wedding Hair and Make-up is NOT a "side-line" wedding beauty business, and every reputable wedding vendor knows, the value and excitement of a potential Bride. Immediate responses show passion, dedication and priority!

What is our beauty goal with each bride?

Every bride wants to be stunning on wedding day!  

Artistry, in my professional experience, should not take a bride out of her "beauty comfort zone." In the past few years, many brides desired to imitate Kim Kardashian. Kim is well-known for dramatic makeup styles; but even Kim, minimized her makeup choices on wedding day!  

OUR GOAL...We coach our brides to avoid "over the top" makeup and hairstyle selections for wedding day if she is not accustomed to wearing those looks on special occasions. Our beauty goal is for every bride to be confident and glowing by enhancing her natural beauty, as wedding guests admire the bride's captivating beauty!

We highly recommend as bridal beauty experts to consider selections to reflect YOUR skin tone, hair color, hair density and length. In other words, we begin with YOU, your hair texture and your real beauty challenges.  As an accomplished beauty expert; I personally review your trial images.  I might suggest hair extensions, brow shape, hair trim, etc... before the trial session to maximize your session results and to insure trial satisfaction!

Please visit our PORTFOLIO section featuring 300 wedding hairstyles and wedding makeup looks from our past weddings.  The photos are unretouched and we chose not to edit the kitchen sink, fruit bowl or the living room couch in the background.  My point? Click on photo #1 and move to the next photo frames to allow closer view of the images. I believe you will agree that our brides look lovely in these personal camera photos but just imagine with professional photography that your wedding hairstyle and wedding makeup will be absolutely flawless!

We offer wedding beauty advice at no extra fee.  I recall a story of a past bride who had little confidence in what wedding images to choose. As the owner, I assisted in review of her facial features and wedding gown image and then selected wedding hairstyles and wedding makeup photos that would enhance her own skin tone and hair texture.   We reviewed the images of what she liked or disliked and we literally customized a wedding look she LOVED!   Just ask for help if you need!

Got questions?

We love questions!

I would be delighted to respond, quickly and efficiently to any questions you have and no need to make an appointment - just email or call!

The bottom line --we are here when you are ready!  Ask away!

Brides BRAG

We are certainly proud of our outstanding 150+ online bridal reviews on The Knot and over 800 notes of appreciation written to us over the years!  

At Artistic Wedding Hair and Make-up; we believe in authentic reviews. It is becoming more standard practice (than not) for vendors to reach out to brides and "reward" the client for positive reviews. While we realize only 5-10% of clients take time to review a business without any incentives, we refrain from this practice and desire bride reviews from the heart, so-to-speak.  

At AWH, our policy is always "everything in writing" to create a beautiful experience and helps to properly plan without misunderstandings.  We literally guide you, step by step, through the bridal experience and ease your wedding stress from the very beginning. No guessing what is next...that is my professional role and beauty commitment to every bride!

Best advice for future brides?   If you desire beautiful results, exceptional organization and straightforward communication---you will love us!  "Beauty is our heArt."  XOXO
