What brands of hair products do you use?
We have many products we use and an array of product lines. Our kits are primarily filled with Kenra, Oribe, Bumble and Bumble and Sebastian.
What brands of makeup products do you use?
We use many different makeup product lines, some of which include our own lipcolor line - Caroline Cosmetics, MAC, Smashbox, Make Up For Ever, Bobbi Brown, Benefit, Laura Mercier, Temptu, Make-up Atlelier, Inglot, Too Faced, It Cosmetics, and Urban Decay. We have found that these cosmetics are hypoallergenic, really stand up to humidity, tears and above all, they are photo-friendly.
Do you do makeup airbrushing?
Yes, we specialize in airbrush makeup and only do traditional foundation upon special request. Airbrush foundation is thinner than regular foundation. The fine mist spray of airbrush makeup provides a flawless coverage, evening out skins imperfections while still allowing your skin to breathe. It withstands sweat and tears better than traditional foundation. Don't worry about leaving your face on the suits of every man you hug, airbrush foundation doesn't transfer as much as traditional. Airbrush is a layering technique, if you have freckles or just want a light coverage, we do a thin layer of airbrush. If you have problem skin or prefer a heavier coverage, we will apply more layers of the foundation.
Where are consultations and trials done?
Consultations we usually hold over Skype or Facetime. It’s a very convenient way for the busy bride to meet me and discuss her ideas without the commute. Most trials are done at the brides home or location of choice. If that isn’t possible we can discuss an alternate location.
How large of a party can you service for hair and makeup?
We can handle parties of any size. For very large parties we bring additional artists at no additional cost to you. Our artists are very experienced and have all been trained by Nancy.
Can I book you for only hair or makeup and have another vendor for the other service?
You can absolutely hire a separate vendor for your makeup and only book us for your hair or vice versa. We understand you might have a relationship or referral for another makeup artist or hairstylist. The other stylist and our team will work together for you on your wedding day to ensure everything goes smoothly. We do recommend that you only hire 1 makeup company and 1 hair styling company. Hiring more than that separately can confuse or frustrate some stylists and can be counterproductive. Leave it to the stylists to bring the additional help you need. We do have a non-compete clause in our contract. For whatever services you hire us for, we are to be the only artists for that service.
What is included in a hair and/or makeup preview?
We will travel to you for your preview. We spend a lot of time with you to figure out exactly what you want. Feel free to share a Pinterest board ahead of your trial with your wedding day vision. You can also send us photos of your dress, venue, and details. The hair and makeup preview is a separate fee, this is not part of your wedding contract, and the fee is due to the service provider in cash at the time of service. Your wedding date is not reserved just by booking a trial.
Do you stay for touch-ups after the ceremony?
If you would like us to stay for touch-ups we are happy to do so. We will make sure your hair and makeup remain perfect through all of mother natures elements. We will also take out your veil and even change your style if you want. This time needs to be reserved in advance. An additional fee does apply.
How do I secure my wedding date with Nancy Caroline Bridal Beauty?
In order to reserve your wedding with us, a signed contract and deposit are required. A contract will be emailed to you and you can securely pay your deposit at the end of the contract.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash and Venmo preferred and all major credit cards. Your hair and makeup preview is cash only, and your deposit is by credit card only. WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY PERSONAL CHECKS FOR ANY SERVICE.
