+ How do I book my wedding date with Kara?
STEP1 Complete the short questionaire which will allow Kara to check availability and create a custom quote for you. STEP2 When you are ready you'll give a 50% deposit to secure your date. PRO-TIP: Kara and her team book months (yes, months!) in advance. So don't delay!
+ Why is there a price difference for Kara vs Team Artists?
Simple, experience. Kara has been in the industry for 25 years, contuiously learning & teaching, has a hefty celebrity roster and has been published in several national and local magazines. Oh and has successfully accomplished primping 1034 brides as of April 2018.
+ What if I'm unsure how many services we'll need on my wedding day?
We book time and supplies based on the number of people and services we agreed upon. Once the contract is signed services can only be added not taken away as your artists have been reserved for your date. We do our best to add services on the day of but there are no guarantees since it is not on the schedule. There is a possibility we will have to say “no” if you wait to add services. PRO-TIP: It can put brides and artists in a tough position when grandma, the best man’s girlfriend, or your new MIL sees the bridal party looking gorgeous and decide they want to get dolled up, too. Our advice is to be very clear with all the ladies in your family (and your fiancee’s!) that hair and makeup services are booked far in advance, and even a “quick touch up” for Aunt Betty will take time and focus away from the bridal party.
+ Do you offer or recommend trial runs?
Most who hire Kara do not feel a trial is necessary but it is available if they wish to book. We feel a trial is key, when using a Team Artist, to a bride’s confidence on her wedding day, however out-of-town brides or those not wanting to have a physical trial, they have the option of a Skype/FaceTime Consultation with Kara. PRO-TIP: Make the most of your trial! We suggest setting up your trial appointment before your engagement or bridal photos, bridal shower, or other special event!
+ Where is Kara?
Kara and her team work onsite for weddings and commercial photo shoots. Bridal trials, makeovers, lessons, brow shaping & microblading appointments take place at her Austin Studio.
+ How do I prepare for my appointment?
Please arrive with a clean face, no mascara and dry hair. Please wash and dry your hair the night before your appointment or morning of. PRO-TIP: Our services are intended to relax! Please feel free to bring your own music, your bunny slippers, a favorite herbal tea ... whatever will make you feel comfortable. And please remember to eat!
+ Do services include false lashes?
Oh gosh yes! The cost of makeup application always includes false lashes and because Kara is eyebrow obsessed, all beauty services come with a brow touch up shaping at no additional charge!
+ How long will my appointment last?
We book 45-60 minutes per service. When there are multiple artists, we can do hair and makeup simultaneously, so your appointment will take about 45 minutes regardless of whether you’re doing hair, makeup, or both.
+ Do you offer discounts for large bridal parties?
We maximize your value and keep costs down by offering hair and makeup services as a package, and by not charging extra for a la carte items like lashes or hair extension application. We do offer a $50 Gift Card to anyone you refer for microblading!
