--Do you have a minimum for booking?
We DO offer bride-only package depending on details, please inquire for requirements!
Grooming Shaves, beards, and haircutting: $300 minimum to book. (equates to about: Groom + 2-3 other Party services inc. travel)
--How do we book with you?
Here are the usual first steps to booking with Fades Beards and Beauty:
1. List a good e-mail for estimates/quotes/invoices on our Inquiry Form on our Contact Page.
2. Once we receive an e-mail address, we will send a quote with received inquiry information.
--A phone consult is available to discuss pricing, quote, trial and general booking questions--
3. Once the estimate is reviewed and you'd like to move forward, the contract will be sent. Once the contract is completed and signed, you will be sent an Invoice for the Booking Fee of $100. Once we set the Trial date (about 3-6mo from the wedding) an invoice for the $50/100 trial date will be sent a week prior to the chosen date. The Trial invoices are all due by 12pm, 24hrs before trial date. All final invoices are due no later than 7 days before wedding date (invoices are sent 1st of the month, every month for wedding accordingly)
*The $100 Booking Fee does not get paid until the contract is signed & returned.*
4. All services and # of party members are due by the trial date. Any service changes within 30 days to the wedding, will still be due. We understand life happens, but we book all needed artists as soon as we receive the final service list at the trial date. Artists are expecting a certain amount of clients for the event date.
*Bookings are first come, first serve. If there are multiple people interested in a date, whoever returns completed contract and fee first, gets the date. You may request a Trial first before signing a contract, but if another inquiry wants to book same day, they get the date.
--What do we do for skin and hair prep before trial and day of?
Exfoliate skin 3-5 days before services. That includes lips! A good natural scrub is a mixture of 1Tbsp raw honey and 1Tbsp brown sugar for the lips and face!
Did you know Raw honey has anti-bacterial properties, as well as anti-viral and anti-fungal? It is great for healing acne and is also a humectant and draws moisture to the skin, leaving it soft and supple.
Moisturize and tone a week before services as well. Sunday Riley and Dermalogica both have affordable, but high-end products available in combo kits!
NO makeup. Make sure face is clear of any makeup, including yesterdays mascara and liner.
NO wet hair. No dirty hair! Dirty is NOT better! Shampoo it evening before, but no conditioner. Conditioner causes hair to be too sleek for curls to hold.
NO rubberbanded hair (buns) Hair ties leave creases in hair and we have to straighten kinks out, taking extra time.
Bring any veil or accessories. Wear white top so you can get a feel for what you'll look like on Day Of!
--How do we pay? Day of, or before then?
Invoices are sent out for each month's weddings by the 1st of the month. Costs for all services are due no later than 7 days before the event. Trial Invoices are due 24 hrs before Trial Date.
Bride pays 'Total Amount Due'. NO individual payments taken from the Party.
Invoice reminders will be sent weekly until paid, we accept PayPal & CC paid through Invoice. Tips can be paid to artists through Ca$hApp, Venmo, PayPal, or cash.
--Do you do extensions? And do I need to buy them myself?
Yes! We do install clip-in extensions for updos! Currently, we have a limited stock of 12" extensions you can choose to purchase at your trial. We do suggest ordering your own through Bellami Extensions. $50 for extensions purchase from our limited inventory (+ $25 install fee on trial day and day of)
--Is MOB/MOG same pricing for makeup and hair package as Bridesmaids?
If they want full updo and full-face makeup, then Yes.
If they prefer their own makeup but would like only their eyes done, that is $50.
If they’d like their hair done but have short pixie-style hair or just want curls, then that is $50.
What about Flower Girls or Junior Bridesmaids?
Flower Girls or Jr Bridesmaids under 10 is $30 a service. Anyone over 10 will be charged as Bridesmaids pricing unless they’re doing Curls only ($50) and Eyes Only ($50)
--Can you breakdown Travel Fee?
$1/mi TO location only. One-way charge only, Per artist.
--How do event & wedding trials work?
Trial days are 2-Hr consultations for hair and makeup. 1-hr per service. (Mandatory unless agreed upon, or FL booked weddings exempt)
Bring along any hair accessories you would like to add for day of. You can bring 1 guest to trial (Guest may watch but cannot interrupt consultation between artist & bride)
Trial days are:
Saturday/Sundays: 8am, by availability.
*Wear white top so it'll best represent what you'll look like on the day of.
--Where are consultations/trials held?
Determined by trial date.
--Are trials required of any other party member?
No. In fact, trials are only for Brides. Being very busy with weddings Fri-Sun and barbershop/salon clients to take care of during the week, trial days are left to book as many brides as possible. Booking bride trials only, ensures we get every Bride's needs/time met.
--What is the 7:30am extra charge for?
If Artists are required to arrive before 7:30am to start services, $25 early-start charge is applied.
If services are required to be performed before 7:30am and are more than 50 miles away, hotel rental cost will be applied to total.
--Can you add services day of?
If any of the hired artists have time at end of agreed-upon timeline, then there is a possibility. If it is full face and updo in under 1 hour to ceremony, no. Artists are hired upon contracted service hours.
No service changes within 30 days, cancelled service costs will still be due. (Excluding illness such as COVID, or family emergency)
