What To Expect On The Day Of...

Stylists will arrive 10 minutes before start time and set up our styling station in one location,

all participants will meet us there for appointments. I will need a table and an electrical outlet to plug my extension cord into. When weather permits, a relaxing outdoor space is highly recommended.


Help us stay on schedule by having each participant arrive on time with dry hair and clean skin.


Remind all participants to have inspiration photos ready to view.


Remember to wear a button down shirt or robe for styling.


One day unwashed hair is recommended in general. If your hair is fine or prone to becoming greasy you may prefer to wash and dry your hair the morning of the event.

Schedule a trail hair and makeup run with Kim for 1 month before your big day.               

Trial runs take place at Blissful Beauty Salon and last 2-2.5 hours.

Hair: $125 Makeup: $105


Text Kim (209) 985-9809 inspiration pictures of the bride's desired hair and makeup style.          


Text Kim (209) 985-9809 pictures of the brid's hair as it is now.                  


Inform other attendees to have inspiration pictures of their desired hair and/or makeup styles available for their stylist to view the day of.                  


I will email you an invoice one week prior to the event date for payment of any remaining balance.
