Hair and makeup inquiries:
Is there a minimum to book my event?
The starting package is for the Brides hair, makeup, and one additional service on the wedding day. This Package also includes the brides trial. If there are no additional services needed on the wedding day the package price still remains the same due to the minimum booking requirement.
Why is there an additional fee for an assistant?
I take a lot of pride in the respect I have for my fellow colleagues and what they do. I need to guarantee them as well as myself our minimum day rate. The additional fee guarantees their day rate, which allows me to book them for your day.
What are the prices to book my wedding?
Packages start at 800.00 for the brides hair, makeup (on the wedding day), and trial run plus one additional service on the wedding day.
Do you travel to the location for my wedding?
Yes. If your wedding is within 10 miles of my location, travel is included in your price. If I am traveling farther than 10 miles, there is an additional travel fee. Please inquire for the additional fee.
Do I need to put down a deposit to book my wedding?
Yes, you will be charged for half of the services booked to reserve your day.
When am I responsible for paying the balance?
Your final balance is due the day of your event.
How do I pay for my deposit and final balance?
Cash or check is my preferred method for the particular payment. However, I can accept credit card payments for an additional 3% fee.
If I book my wedding at a hotel, am I responsible for paying your parking?
Yes. If I have to park downtown, I will valet and charge parking to your room.
Does my makeup include false eyelashes?
Absolutely! My favorite part of a makeup application is a beautiful set of individual lashes that will be customized to your eye for a flawless finish
Do the additional makeup applications purchased (bridesmaids, mothers) include false eyelashes?
Yes, each person who purchases a makeup application receives beautiful individual lashes.
Do you use airbrush?
I do not offer airbrush application at this time. I am very confident and happy with using multiple products and brushes to create a flawless finish.
Are you licensed in hair and makeup?
Yes, Austie Eckley is licensed in both hair and aesthetics.
Can my trial runs be included in my day off minimum if I book A la carte?
Unfortunately your day-of services are separate from you trial runs because your trial runs are on a separate day.
What is the price for a trial run?
Trial runs are generally for the brides only, unless otherwise discussed. Please inquire for packaging and A la carte pricing.
Can I do a trial run if I have not booked my wedding yet?
If you want a trial before you book your wedding with me the fee for the trial is more than if you are a booked bride. Additionally, please note you run the risk of losing your date because a deposit is the only way to guarantee your date. If you book your wedding after the trial run, the additional charge will be added toward your final balance.
Is my trial run cost refundable?
Your trial run is a service and is not refundable. It is very important you arrive to your appointment with examples of what you want and to be honest throughout the trial run process so that we can create the perfect look for you.
If I want an additional trial run, am I responsible to pay the fee again?
Yes. Your trial run is designed to create the perfect look for your day. It is very important to arrive to your appointment prepared and to make sure you are happy with your look before you leave.
Can anyone get a trial run?
Trial runs are for brides only, unless otherwise discussed.
