FREQUENTLY ASKED IN SUITE QUESTIONS

WHAT TIME CAN WE START?

The salon opens at 9:00am and we recommend starting at that time.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE?

Depending on our availability and how much notice we have for your wedding date, we typically can accommodate for as many people as necessary.

CAN WE BRING FOOD/DRINKS?

Yes! We will have a space set up for you.

CAN I JUST GET EYELASHES APPLIED WITHOUT A FULL FACE MAKEUP APPLICATION?

Yes. It is $25 for an individual eyelash application.

CAN I JUST GET MY EYE MAKEUP APPLIED AND NOT MY FOUNDATION?

No, we do not offer a partial makeup application service.

IT IS A DIFFERENT CHARGE IF MY HAIR IS HALF UP VS ALL UP?

No, the charge for a special occasion style is a set price.

I'M WORRIED THAT MY MAKEUP WON'T LAST... WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU USE & WHAT CAN I DO TO MAINTAIN MY MAKEUP?

We use glominerals makeup for our makeup applications. The makeup is meant to last all day. If you are worried, we sell translucent setting powders that can be applied throughout the day. Otherwise, the only thing that would need to be reapplied is your lip stick/gloss, which we do recommend purchasing if you want to touch up throughout the day.

DO YOU OFFER AIR BRUSH MAKEUP?

We do not.

HOW LONG DOES EACH APPOINTMENT LAST?

We schedule 2 1/2 hours for the bride’s hair and makeup, and about 1 hour for bridal party hair, and 1 hour for bridal party makeup.

WHAT TIME SHOULD WE EXPECT TO BE OUT OF THE SALON?

Depending on the size of your bridal party and our availability, plan on being with us for 2.5 to 3.5 hours.

HOW MUCH ARE FLOWER GIRLS?

Depending on the hair style and how well they sit, we charge $45-65 for flower girls.

HOW MANY STYLES DOES MY PREVIEW INCLUDE?

You are scheduled for an hour and a half, so depending on the intricacies of your styles, your stylist will do what they can with that time. If you require more sessions or would like to see more than one look and each look takes a new appointment time, you will be required to pay for each session.

WHY AM I REQUIRED TO DO BRIDAL TRIAL PREVIEWS?

It is as important for the stylist to be familiarized with your hair and makeup prior to the day of your wedding as it is for you to be comfortable with the stylist and makeup artist.

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE ARE RUNNING LATE TO OUR APPOINTMENTS?

Our stylists and makeup artists have full schedules booked with clientele following your appointments. It is imperative that you come to your appointments on time and we do even ask that you show up 15 minutes early, as our schedules are very tightly booked. We would do our best, but if anyone from the bridal party is late, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate for one or more of their scheduled appointments. We can only spend the remainder of the time allotted for their appointment once they show up

WHAT SERVICES DO YOU RECEOMMEND PRIOR TO MY WEDDING DATE?

We encourage prepping your hair, skin, and nails! Elle is a full service salon. It is common for brides to get facial waxing, brow tints, lash tints, facials or chemical peels, hair coloring, extension applications, manicures, and pedicures leading up to the big day. We want you to look and feel your best. Let us help you do that!
