How far ahead can I book your services? Can I book a pre-wedding makeup/hair preview?
You can book us a year or more in advance with a signed agreement and 50% deposit. We can then schedule your beauty preview 2-4 months before the event. Previews take place at our studio on evenings and select Saturdays. We will always work to accommodate your schedule, and we understand that you may be traveling into the city for event appointments.
Do I have to schedule a bridal preview for my hair or makeup?
No, you are not required to schedule a preview session. We do advise clients to book a preview with one of our beauty artists so you can perfect your wedding day look. SB Beauty offers complimentary phone consultations to discuss your vision and schedule your preview.
How can I prep for my bridal preview?
To make the preview process as seamless as possible, please bring:
- A photo or two of your stunning dress
- Several inspiration images of makeup and hairstyles you like
- Any hair accessories you’d like to incorporate into your look
For best beauty outcomes, please observe the following:
- Arrive with clean, dry hair
- We are happy to remove your makeup from the day
- Kindly discontinue use of retinols for 3 days prior to the preview
Will I have the same artist on my wedding day as I do for my preview?
Before we book your preview date with SB Beauty artists, we confirm they are also available for your wedding day or weekend.
I’d like to know more about my bridal beauty timeline. How does it work?
Once we have the necessary details—including number of attendants, and photo and ceremony schedule—we create the timeline for you. Working closely with your wedding planner, we assemble a detailed and flexible agenda that accounts for last-minute changes, guest lateness, interruptions, and unforeseen speed bumps.
Do you have timing recommendations for facials, waxing, and spray tanning?
We suggest getting your eyebrows tweezed, waxed or threaded no later than four days prior to your wedding. For facials, we recommend getting a light “glow and go” facial with no extractions about a week in advance of the event.
Our makeup artists can color-match your foundation to your skin tone, so you don’t need to worry about a spray tan matching your face.
