Please find some commonly asked questions. If you have any other questions please ask .....
Q: What is the benefit of having someone come to you?
A: Having a Bridal Beauty Specialist come to you is much more personal than going to a busy salon and trying to coordinate everyone in and out the door. We don`t have multiple clients at a time our focus is on you and your wedding party . Salons only do a handful of Bridal Parties a year. This is what we do every weekend:)
Q: Do I need a minimum number of people to book?
A:There is a minimum number of paid services required on the wedding day. With the personal service we provide coming to the Brides location on her special day, we only book one wedding a day per team member to ensure our Brides have our undivided attention and flexibility if timing needs to be adjusted closer to the date. If you have under the minimum you may still book, the unfilled spots would be billed at the minimums below. You might find some mobile companies do not have minimums, more than likely they book multiple parties a day which you have to be careful of as it can be rushed for timing. *Flower girls to not count in the minimums below.

A: With the volume of weddings we do Friday, Saturday and Sunday we reserved those days for wedding bookings only, as we provide our Brides with our full flexibility on their special day.
Q: Do I have to have a trial ?
A: No you do not many of our Brides are referrals so they have experience with our service and some Bride choose not too as they do not feel it is needed. It is entirely up to you.
Q: Why do I have to reserve my wedding date to have a trial?
A: You are under no obligation until the trial date not too worry.

Q: Why is airbrushing makeup better?
A: Airbrush Makeup has been used by celebrities for years to create a flawless finish. Airbrushing photographs beautifully as it is tiny pixels going on the skin, unlike traditional foundations that is one block of colour. Airbrushing is very versatile, you can achieve sheer to full coverage while still looking natural as it mimics the skins natural texture. Because the Airbrushing we use is silicon based it is water resistant for those wedding day tears of happiness :).
Q: What makeup brands do you use ?
A: We use Temptu Pro for the Airbrushing, Pinnacle, Modern Basic, MA.C, Urban Decay, Smash Box, Benefit and a few other tried and tested and true favorites from various companies. All makeup is Hypo Allergenic and works well with all skin types :)
Q: Can I buy a Lipstick to touch up with ?
A: We do give you a swatch sample to touch up with throughout the day.
Q: NO Deposit until the trial !
A: The deposit is due after the trial as long as you are happy. Most mobile companies take up to 50% of the total invoice to book with no cancellation. At Pretty in Pink we know you have a lot of deposits to pay for so we do not request that without even having a trial first, we leave it open until the trial as long as it follows the trial terms and timing below. The Deposit is the cost of the Brides only services only the day of the wedding.Brides on average have their trial about 6 months in advance. We try to avoid booking trials in our busiest months July to August with the volume of weddings we do .
