frequently asked questions 

what SAFETY MEASURES ARE YOU TAKING IN REGARD TO COVID-19?

Kit hygiene has always been a top priority for me. Working with clean tools and avoiding cross contamination has been a part of my practice since I started. Even still, I have made some changes to the way I handle the contents in my kit to minimize the risk of infection even further. Here are some examples of how I will work to ensure the safety of everyone involved:

 

  • Product is kept sanitary by working off of a stainless steel palette, and NEVER double dipping

  • Product packaging is regularly disinfected

  • Disposables are used whenever necessary 

  • Enough makeup brushes & tools will be brought so that a freshly cleaned & disinfected set is used for each client 

  • I will be wearing a mask for your protection and mine

  • I am double vaxxed & boosted 

I have completed a number of safety courses and training over the years, and few more recently in response to the pandemic. Below are some of those certifications. This training has echoed a lot of my prior knowledge, and offered some new insight in regard to infection control and prevention as It pertains to COVID-19.

WHY ARE TRIALS INCLUDED IN THE BRIDAL PRICE?

 

The main objective of a bridal trial is to find the perfect look for your wedding day, so I like to book them about 4-6 weeks before your event. A lot can happen to your skin and hair (not to mention your overall vision) in the months leading up to the big day, so timing it this way will give us the most accurate idea of what we'll be working with.

 

If you'd like an opportunity to see how I work or if we "click" sooner than that, you can book me for a special event service, separate from your bridal services.

HOW MUCH TIME IS NEEDED TO COMPLETE EACH SERVICE?

 

To ensure that no one is rushed and everyone is ready when they need to be, every service (hair or makeup) is scheduled for one hour each. This gives me time to complete the service, and reset my tools/workspace for the next in line. If you require the installation of clip-in extensions, that will add about 20 minutes to a hair service depending on the desired style. There are occasionally situations where time may need to be added or subtracted, but one hour is the standard. 

How many services are you able to accommodate?

I can provide up to 8 services on my own, provided you have the time to spare! To clarify, one person receiving both hair & makeup would be considered two services. 

I ALREADY HIRED A MAKEUP ARTIST, CAN I STILL BOOK YOU FOR HAIR? (OR VICE VERSA)

 

Of course! If you only need me for one or the other, I'm still more than happy to help!

 

Do you come to me or do I go to you?

 

I do not have a physical location, so all services are mobile - I will come to you! 

what products do you use in your kit?

 

My kit is always evolving, but some of my favourite makeup brands are Face Atelier, RCMA, Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverly Hills, and Makeup Geek. For hair, I use Aveda, Amika, Aloxxi & Unite. 

All products in my kit are animal cruelty-free! 

 

You ALSO do hair, but your WEBSITE and instagram handle is "JENNDIDMYMAKEUP???

 

Makeup was my first love, but I am also a licensed hairstylist! When I started to pursue hair, I thought about changing it, but "jenndidmymakeupandhair" is too long and just doesn't sound as good! If it ain't broke, don't fix it... am I right?

People often ask if I have a preference, but I love both equally! 

I THINK I LIKE YOU, WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?

You're making me blush! Please fill out the contact form on my availability page, and I will let you know ASAP if am able to accommodate your booking. From there, I will contact you to set up a phone consultation so we can talk details.

 

A signed service agreement and non-refundable 50% retainer must be paid via eTransfer to secure all bookings.
