Yes! It is possible to make changes to the number of services after signing the contract, as long as you meet our minimum. We require two (2) months’ notice of the final services so that we can properly accommodate your requests. Last-minute requests will depend on our artists’ availability.
Unfortunately no. The trial fee is separate and cannot be applied towards the wedding day services minimum.
We can! Extensions are a great way to add volume and length to your hair. We recommend the EuroNext 18-inch Clip-In Extensions that are available at Sally’s Beauty Supply. You can go into the store and have them match you with the closest ones to your color. Price runs between $120 to $140. If you don’t want long extensions, but prefer to add volume to short hair, you can purchase the 14-inch extensions. We do not cut extensions but use them as is. We charge $25 to add extensions to your hair.

We have a 5 service minimum per artist for all weddings booking hair and makeup services on Friday through Sunday from April through November and a 4 service minimum per artist for advanced booking December through March. We have a 6 person service minimum when booking hair or makeup only. This does not include the trial fee, travel, or parking fees.

Option 1: To submit a signed contract and a 30% non-refundable deposit. The remaining 70% isn’t due until two weeks before your wedding. Then scheduling your trial 1-3 months before your wedding. Most of our brides book and put down 30% or $350 (whichever is greater) and then schedule a trial closer to their wedding date since they are more sure of their look/style etc.
Option 2: You can choose to book a trial (must be scheduled within 2 weeks), which will put a soft hold on your date until after your trial at which time we ask you to let us know about moving forward with us for your wedding day.
Our contracts and deposits are made via our booking software, Honeybook. Most of our clients reserve their date with a credit card.
We currently allow one year in advance booking for your wedding date.
For the bride, we reserve one hour for makeup and one hour for hair. For bridal party members, we reserve roughly 35 to 45 minutes for each service. Our artists typically arrive 15 minutes before the first appointment to set up. We prefer to keep the total time for bridal party hair and makeup to be about 5 hours or less. Bridal parties needing more than eight services usually require a second artist.
A second artist is necessary for larger groups or parties with time constraints. Each additional artist carries a $130 fee. MAB Artistry will make arrangements concerning the planning, scheduling, and traveling for the artistry team. We will also provide a hair and makeup schedule with the assigned artists two (2) weeks before the wedding.

Please note that we will put a soft hold on your date until the time of trial, after which you will have 24 hours to book your wedding date.

If the client chooses to terminate services, they will be refunded all monies, except for an administrative fee of $400 taken from the initial deposit. If the client postpones their wedding date, the initial deposit will be transferred to the new wedding date (up to a year from the original wedding date only), and any outstanding balances will still need to be paid. If the client postpones their wedding date more than once, a $150 rescheduling fee will be charged per instance. The initial deposit will be transferred to the new wedding date and any outstanding balances will still need to be paid.
