Question: How should I prepare for my appointment/trial?
Answer: For a makeup appointment, please make sure your face is clean and free of all makeup and mascara before the artist arrives. If you are getting your hair styled, please come with 100% dry hair. Styles hold best on hair that hasn’t been washed for a day. For a bridal makeup trial, if your dress is strapless, it is recommended to arrive with a strapless top.
