[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”17px”][vc_column_text]At Amanda Hopcraft Makeup Artist, we feel we are artists.

When should I book my trial?

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”17px”][vc_column_text]We recommend booking your trial when you have your dress in your hands or about two months before your wedding.

Saturdays and peak months – March-November and October-December – book quickly.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][vc_column_text]

Why is the bride’s makeup and hair more expensive?

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”17px”][vc_column_text]The easiest way to explain it is time. The time that we spend with the bride is significantly longer than the time spent with bridesmaids/others and it goes beyond the time spent just on the wedding day. From start to finish we spend an average of 3-6 hours working with each bride from initial contact to trial, communications and all the way to follow ups after the wedding. Where as we only spend 30 minutes with each member of the bridal party on the day of the wedding. This is a very standard practice in the beauty industry when it comes to weddings.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][vc_column_text]

How important is the trial?

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”17px”][vc_column_text]We strongly recommend every bride to schedule a preview appointment. It is an extremely valuable service. During the preview session, your artist will utilize her expertise and experience to assist you with designing the style you want through careful evaluation of personality, personal style, wedding theme, selected dress, accessories, and jewelry.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][vc_column_text]

What happens during a trial?

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”17px”][vc_column_text]During your trial, you will meet with your artist and/or stylist that will be providing your services on your big day. They will assist you with choosing a look and hairstyle that will best fit your style. The artist and/or stylist will give you one complete look based on what you’ve decided. Minor adjustments may be made during your trial if needed.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][vc_column_text]

What if I, my partner, or a member of my wedding party doesn’t wear makeup or is intimidated by wearing makeup?

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”17px”][vc_column_text]Our artists are trained in several styles of makeup from light men’s grooming to polished photo-ready makeup.

Can I add or remove services after I secure my date?

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”17px”][vc_column_text]It is best to know how many services you will need when booking, but if this is not possible, you can add services up to 1 month before your date. Be advised that adding services may affect your timeline on the day of your event.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
