frequently asked questions

HOW DO I BOOK YOU OR AN ASSOCIATE FOR MY WEDDING DAY?
You can email me directly at hello@daniellegrasleymakeup.com or fill out my contact form! I require a signed contract and retainer payment to secure your booking. I recommend booking 6-12 months in advance!

During peak season, I require a minimum of 4 services for on-location bookings. (2 people for hair and makeup, 4 people for makeup, etc)

ARE YOU AVAILABLE TO TRAVEL TO MY LOCATION?
Absolutely, We are a mobile service! Locations outside of the City of Halifax will incur a travel fee of 55 cents per kilometre. For locations more than 2 hours away, overnight accomodations may be required.


DO I NEED TO DO A TRIAL RUN?

We are always fully prepared on your big day, so a trial is not necessary. If you're feeling anxious or unsure of your vision, having a preview of your bridal makeup and/or hair definitely eases the nerves! Bridal Trials are custom priced based on your requests and scheduled Monday-Thursday. I usually recommend choosing a day where you have a bridal event planned so you get the most out of your hair and makeup!

 

WHY HIRE A LICENSED PROFESSIONAL?

Aside from providing a luxury service and elevated artistry, in the province of Nova Scotia, Makeup Artists are required to be licensed by law. You can rest assured your artist has recieved extensive training and education through a recongized college, uses thorough hygiene and sanitation procedures and proper business practices. You can always ask to see your artists license and mobile permit, they are required to have them in their kit! 

 

WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS OF OPERATION?

Please feel free to contact me anyday, anytime! I will respond as promptly as possible and be as flexible as possible to accomodate your needs, however it may take 24-48 hours to recieve a reply. (Especially during wedding season!)

 

I HAVE A LARGE BRIDAL PARTY. HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN YOU SERVICE FOR HAIR AND MAKEUP?

On my own, I can service a bridal party of 6-8! Any larger, or if your timeline is tight, I will bring a second artist from my team! You may be subject to a second artist fee.

 

HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED TO GET READY?
Makeup application is typically 30-40 minutes and Hairstyling takes about 30-40 minutes per person. I would be happy to create a wedding day schedule for your services!

 

MY CEREMONY IS EARLY, WHEN ARE YOU AVAILABLE TO START?

With a little coffee, I can arrive as early as needed! For artist arrival times earlier than 8:00am, you may be subject to an early morning start fee.


HOW MUCH IS IT FOR FALSE LASHES?
I offer complimentary false lashes to all of my bridal clients! If you choose to skip the lash application, the price for makeup is the same.

 

I'M NEW AT THIS. SHOULD I TIP?
Gratuities are left to the clients' discretion and are not reflected in the pricing. 

 

WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR MY WEDDING DAY HAIR AND MAKEUP?
A good skincare routine is the foundation of great makeup. I'd be happy to chat about your skin concerns and help you find a great solution! Please arrive with clean, dry hair for the best style results.

 

I WANT TO CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT. CAN I GET A REFUND?
Things happen, understandably! However, when we secure your time or date, I am fully committed to you. This means I turn away other clients and therefore payments are non-refundable. Everything is explained in your Bridal Contract!
