Why are your prices higher than a salon ?
With Stephanie Stearnes Artistry you are getting a custom experience. I bring the salon to a location convenient for you. I bring everything from lighting , extension cords, chairs , etc. I strive to make my services the least stressful part of your big day! Pricing also reflects constant communication/ office time / custom schedule / coordinating with your wedding planner ( if you have one ). I also use top of the line, tried and true equipment and products.
Do you do group discounts or packages ?
Not at this time .
How far in advance should I book?
“ Wedding Season” is all year round now in Michigan. I would suggest at least 6 months in advance . Most of my brides book 6 months to 1.5 years in advance.
How do I pay?
Payment is required no less than 3 days before date of contracted services. An invoice will be sent for payment . All major debit/credit cards are accepted. I do not charge a transaction fee.
Do you provide both hair and makeup services?
Yes! I provide and am licensed to perform both services . No need to book two separate vendors.
Are you licensed and insured ?
Yes I am ! I am insured as well as licensed in Cosmetology in the state of Michigan .
Is it just Stephanie Stearnes who performs services?
Depending on amount of services and time restrictions Stephanie Stearnes may work alone or with other local hair and makeup artists / assistants. Stephanie Stearnes will always be at your wedding as the lead stylist unless otherwise discussed with the bride.
Why is a Bridal Preview required for the bride?
A bridal preview is required for the bride to make absolutely sure the style of hair and / or makeup is 100 percent tailored and approved by you. This speeds up time while also relieving any stress of not knowing if you will like the chosen hairstyle or makeup . Bridal previews gives us a chance to consult and make sure that everything is custom to you. Each bridal preview includes a thorough consultation where we go over inspiration, and your overall vision for the big day, as well as performing the desired hair or makeup look. I always check in to follow up after a bridal preview to get all feedback. Any feed back is good feedback!
What is Airbrush Makeup?
Airbrush makeup is a type of makeup as well as a technique. A special water based foundation and bronzer to flawlessly go on skin. Water based airbrush makeup can range from a satin to matte finish. Water based airbrush foundation lasts up to 24 hours, is water resistant, transfer proof, medium to full coverage, and photographs in HD. The overall look of airbrush makeup is flawless “skin-like” finish without feeling like you have much on your face.
