CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement! I am honoured to be considered by you as your bridal makeup and hair artist.
As we both know how overwhelming wedding planning can be, please fill in the form below to make it easy for both of us. I will then be able to send you a quote accordingly.
TRIALS: Trials are usually done 2-6 weeks before the wedding date, and are done from Mondays to Fridays between 8:00-17:00. 90min per item is set aside, for example: 3hrs in total for hair and makeup trial. When attending your trial, please come as a blank canvas: no makeup, and hair washed the day prior to the trial. The reason you need to wash your hair the day before, is that it will be required for you to do the same for your wedding day. Freshly washed hair is fine and slips out of style quicker. Your hair will style much easier and hold the style much longer. Doing this for your trial, will give us a good idea of how your hair will style on the day of your wedding. Hair must be dry on the day of styling. Blow-drying of hair before styling takes extra time, which will then be charged accordingly. Trials to be held in my home-based studio in Brackenfell.
Please ensure you have a freshly cleansed skin before your makeup application. For best results, apply your daily moisturizer after cleansing your face. I will then apply a primer and start the makeup application.
Please note: clip-in hair extensions available on request, at additional fee, at least 3 months prior to wedding date, subject to availability. False individual stick-on lashes on request, but I will suggest applying semi-permanent lash extensions for long-lasting and best results.
All brides will receive a 'touch-up kit' on their wedding day.
Getting the formalities out the way: Donna Taylor Pro Makeup + Hair goes to great extreme to ensure hygiene with products and equipment at all times. Although all products used are professional salon quality and of high standard, and as far possible hypo-allergenic and suitable for sensitive skins, treatments/services, done by Donna Taylor and team, are at clients own risk. Please inform us of anything needing special attention or care.
Makeup and beauty is my passion and will go the absolute extra mile to make you look and feel like the best you on your wedding day! To make everything flow smoothly, a time line will be set up and is expected to be adhered by. Please make sure all the ladies are on time for their appointment time stated on time line. A highly qualified and experienced assistant will be appointed for larger bridal parties for your convenience.
Please note: A minimum bridal package booking for a Saturday wedding is R3100.
I look forward to being a part of your happily-ever-after journey!
