We offer on-site hairstyling and makeup application for special events, appearances, galas, photoshoots, portraits, commercial work and more! Our stylists bring their makeup kit and hair tools to your location. We just ask for good lighting, a table to set our tools on, and a chair for you to sit on while we get you ready! Due to our demand for bridal parties, we have a $820 minimum for advanced weekend bookings (2 or more months before the event). We do book single person appointments one month from event date for weekends.
