Preparation for your big day requires a few important simple things to follow for the best beautiful results!
Arrival Time: Laura Reynolds Artistry requires all members receiving Hair or Makeup services be present at the contracted getting ready time.
*Please have a clean, cleared space for our stylists to set up. Tables/Desks near an outlet works best.
*Robes, button down shirts or a shirt with a wide neckline helps preserve hair and makeup when changing.
*Steaming dresses? Be sure to finish before any hair or makeup service as the steam and water will cause hair to frizz and curls to drop.
*Popping bottles? Warn the room before opening a bottle of champagne so our hair and makeup artists can pause and not be startled while working on a client.
Hair should be day old dirty (washed the night before) and 100% COMPLETELY DRY. Use of minimal product is strongly encouraged. Avoid applying oil, heavy serums, or hard hairsprays that will prevent the hair from holding curl or style. Avoid using a flat/ straightening iron because it may prevent your hair from holding a curl or style. If your hair is naturally curly and you desire a different style, please have your hair blown out or flat ironed before the getting ready time. Your hair will be prepped with a primer and heat protector before styling to protect the hair and prolong the life of the style.
Natural Curly Hair Clients: If a client has very tight curls and they want their hair to be designed with a different curl pattern than their natural hair (For example “soft curls”), please come with it blown out/straightened or the curl pattern almost 100% loosened. This applies for both updo’s and down styles.
Pro Tip: Bring a corresponding color hair donut for any upstyle to easily add volume and reduce weight in the hair.
Faces should be fresh and clean with minimal moisturizer if desired. Moisturizer will be provided by your Artist. Some moisturizers contain SPF and other active ingredients that will break down the longevity of the makeup and not translate well on camera, sometimes causing an overexposed white face.
It is always best to have a blot powder, lipstick, and gloss handy to touch up later in the event.
