BOOKING WITH NOEMI

 

HOW DO I BOOK WITH NOEMI?

We book up to 1 year in advance. For non wedding appointments you can book online or contact Noemi. For weddings please fill out the inquiry form in the Weddings Page, call or email. If your wedding is more than a year in away, please check back when you are 12 months out. But, don’t wait too long! We book up very quickly and work on a first-come, first-serve basis. 1 year out is the perfect time to book.

HOW DO I SECURE MY WEDDING DATE WITH NOEMI?

Your date is secured only if we have 1) signed contract and 2) 50% retainer of contract total. 

I'M NOT SURE HOW MANY PEOPLE WANT HAIR AND MAKEUP DONE FOR MY WEDDING DAY.

Please make it a priority to ask your party if they will also like services in order for us to give you an accurate proposal and quote. Once numbers are added to the contract there may be a penalty depending on how far in advance any services are removed. Numbers can be increased but we do take multiple bookings and we may have not be able to accommodate extra services. Your artist/s is booked and scheduled based on the numbers you provide. For these reasons, we appreciate an accurate count as soon as possible.

DO YOU HAVE A MINIMUM NUMBER OF WEDDING DAY SERVICES REQUIRED TO BOOK?

Saturdays a minimum of 2 services. Each service individually counts as 1. Flower girls do not count toward the total. 

PRE BRIDALS

DO YOU PROVIDE PRE BRIDALS, WHEN AND WHY IS IT RECOMMENDED?

Yes! We highly suggest a pre bridal of one or both services so that you can see your wedding day look and meet your stylist. It is a great way to get an idea of what you envision for your wedding day.  Seeing how a style you have in mind looks on you will allow you to make any modifications if necessary.  Pre bridals consists of full consultation of hair and/or makeup and take place at the studio or your location. It takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes per service. So, if you are getting both hair and makeup, please allow for 2.5 hours at your appointment. Pre bridals can be booked Mondays - Thursdays ONLY and must have a signed wedding day contract and paid wedding day retainer. Pre bridal makeup rate is 110, hair 115. If you need to book your pre bridal on a weekend the rate will be increased.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY PRE BRIDALS?

We prefer to work on CLEAN, DRY hair. We only offer dry-styling as a pre bridal service, so please arrive with completely dry hair. Whatever you are going to do for your wedding, try to do it before the pre bridals as well so you can get a clear idea of how it will all work together (example. wax, facial, spray tan, etc.) The first step to beautiful makeup is well-prepared skin. Bring your accessories if you have them. (Veil, hair jewelry, extensions, etc).

We can accommodate as many services as you choose as long as it is on location and we have availability for your wedding day, however, studio appointments can accommodate only 4 people at one time including your artist/s. 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR EACH PERSON?

As a general rule, bridal party takes about 45 minutes per service. Bride takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes per service.

HOW MANY STYLISTS WILL BE AT MY WEDDING?

The number of artists depends on the amount of services booked in combination with the amount of time we have to get you ready.  A lot of venues don’t let you in until a certain time, so be sure to check with them when considering your getting ready location. 

HOW SHOULD I DETERMINE "READY" TIMING BEFORE THE CEREMONY?

That is the time that the stylists need to be completely finished with hair and makeup. Please take into consideration travel to the venue if you are getting ready at another location other than the wedding venue, getting into your dress, photos if you are taking  first-look, robe photos or group photos). We recommend at least 45 minutes buffer time before your photos or ceremony if you are not taking photos before.
