We are very excited to share our first vendor spotlight, Ariana’s Hair Creations. This Q&A answers some very common questions that you as a Bride may be wondering. It may have been awhile since the last time you had your hair styled or put in an “updo”, and we all know that when it was our Prom days, mom helped us out A LOT! Now, you are planning for your Wedding, and all of your Bridesmaids, it’s important to get all the details before you sit in the chair and find yourself feeling uncomfortable. Your hair is a big deal! Here’s what we found out from one of our vendor professionals.
1. Does my hair salon have to be close to my venue’s location?
If you prefer being in a salon atmosphere on the morning of your wedding, then yes. If you want stylists to come to you, we travel so it doesn’t matter where the venue is. Let us come to you!
2. Can my hairdresser also be my makeup artist?
Yes! Depending on the amount of girls that need services.
3. Along with the bride, how many maids should your hairdresser be able to “updo” or style?
At least 1-2 girls an hour.
4. What was the largest size bridal party you styled and how long did it take?
10 girls, 4-5 hours
5. Should the Bride and her maids come to the salon, or get ready wherever they prefer?
Wherever they feel comfortable. Most prefer to be set at home, or at the venue.
6. Do your hairstylists look the part? Your team may be on camera too, what do you wear the morning of my wedding?
Stylists are neat and professionally styled in all black for the morning of the wedding.
7. Do you suggest having a stylist ONLY for the Bride and no one else?
If you want everyone to look uniform, we recommend everyone getting services done.
8. Why should a Bride do a trial BEFORE her wedding?
The goal is to have the bride feeling confident about her look on her special day. A trial allows unlimited time to work on her hair, so we can make sure it’s perfect. Most take advantage of the trial for engagement photos, or the engagement party.
9. Why do you, or don’t you charge the Bride for the trial?
There is a small fee for a trial because it does take time, and labor.
10. Do you attend bridal showcases? If so, where can we see you next?
I am very active in bridal showcases. Come see me at Monmouth University on Feb 21st.
Be sure to follow Bride in Charge for more vendors that ROCK! We will also be at Monmouth University on Feb. 21st.
