What is a Date Retainer?
After your wedding consultation or trial, you will have the opportunity to reserve your wedding date by leaving a $100 deposit. This will be applied towards the balance of your wedding day services. Your final payment is due 30 days before your event date. This gives you the opportunity to finalize your wedding party numbers for makeup and hair services.

Is Gratuity Included?
Just like you would tip at a hair salon, nail salon or restaurant for your service, it's customary to tip between 20%-25% of the total services rendered. For Weddings however, to eliminate the inconvenience of having to carry around cash to tip your artists, we automatically include your gratuity of 20% before taxes and fees to your contract for weddings parties of 3 or more.
