Bridal FAQs Preview Hair and Makeup Airbrush Makeup
What is a Preview?
The goal of the preview is to let you and your stylist work together to achieve your perfect look, so your wedding day will run smoothly and you’ll feel beautiful! Your stylist will ask you questions about your desired hair and makeup style, so she is able to create your perfect look. Once your stylist understands your desired look, she will do your full hair and makeup as if it was your wedding day. The preview is the time to make any changes to your hair or makeup style, so on your wedding day your stylist will know exactly what you want. The preview usually lasts about two hours. You will also have the opportunity to go over your contract details and secure your stylist for your wedding date.
I Love my Preview, so what next?
After a successful preview, you and your stylist will discuss and fill out the contract. In the contract, you will finalize your wedding day timing, amount of services and getting ready location. Once you sign the contract, your stylist is secured for your wedding day!
When should I book my preview?
We suggest that a bride schedule her preview 2-3 months before her wedding date; you will need to know your wedding details (time, location, number of services, etc) at your preview appointment.
Do I need to bring anything to my preview appointment or on my wedding day?

How does it feel?
Airbrush makeup is exceptionally lightweight. Most clients say they feel as if they aren’t even wearing makeup.
What are the benefits of airbrush makeup?
Airbrush makeup provides flawless coverage by minimizing skin imperfections while giving skin a beautifully natural finished looking result. It flawlessly covers red spots, brown spots, any spot, wrinkle or blemish, even dark circles under your eyes! You'll look bright, awake and alive.
How long does airbrush makeup last?
Airbrush makeup is highly water resistant and will last for up to twelve hours or more
What happens if I cry or sweat while wearing airbrush makeup?
