Wedding Makeup & Hair

Frequently Asked Questions

Do   I   need my veil + accessories for my trial run?

It is always a plus to have ,but by no, it’s by no means essential.

It is more important to get a hair style that is perfect for you – that way the hair accessories always look good.

You’d be surprised – when we find your perfect hair style the hair accessories will work beautifully.

How much is an trial run?

Trial runs are at full price of wedding day services prior to booking. We more than likely have booking specials that will either offer the trial run at a discounted rate or even free! Please inquire.

When  should  i  schedule    my trial run?

There’s no set time frame, however, most people have their trial run anywhere from 3 months to 2 weeks before the wedding.

If you’re having sleepless nights thinking about how you’re going to look on your wedding day we are happy to do your trial earlier – no problem. We normally recommend scheduling your trial run around something special, to utilize the hair + makeup service. 

Do   You work on all skin tones?

At Jocund we do not believe you are a true artists if you can not work on all the colors of the rainbow. We specialize in working with each and every skin tone and ethnicity. 

How   much  time  do  you    need  on  the  wedding  day?

This all depends on your party size + what services you contract.  We will be able to work out the exact timings for the big day once you’ve had your trial run. We also will send you a final questioner 30 days to the wedding to keep everyone on the same page + organized. Jocund Artistry always allows plenty of time, making sure you’re ready and relaxed, with enough time to get your dress on, have some photos taken and relax before you make your big entrance.

Should   I   have   freshly    washed   hair?

It would be best to have everyone in the bridal party hair dry when we arrive, you can either wash it the day before , or even two days before. This depends on hair types - I can recommend to the bride on the trial run what is the best option for you. On the day of, please don’t use any deep conditioners, leave-in products, 2 in 1 shampoo & conditioners and please don’t straighten your hair.

How   do   i   move   forward With   Booking?

If you would like to move forward with booking, we will send you the booking contract to review. We will hold your date for 24 hours for your review. If you would like to move forward please fill out the contract and pay the half down booking retainer. Once that is completed you are set + officially saved the date with Jocund Artistry.

I would like a spray tan before the wedding, will it affect the make-up?

No, the only thing we will do is change your base color to match your new skin color/tone. If you feel that you would like anything accentuated, with your new tan, that's no problem. I would suggest that you have a spray tan a few days before your trial to see what your make-up will look like with your new tan. You do not need ANY surprises on your wedding day!

I  have a large party will you be able to accommodate  us?

Of course we will! We have a full team to accommodate every party size. It could be hair and makeup just for the bride or a party of ten or more, we will leave you smiling on the big day! 

My bridal party has a strict budget to work with, can you help?

At Jocund Artistry, we know weddings can be expensive.  We try to help our bride's out by offering booking specials once a month with the occasional flash sale. Please message us if you have a special budget need, we will try to help you and your party out as best as possible.
