How to prepare for makeup and hair services depends on the service required. If you are doing a business photo it might be sufficient to just get a clean-up on your normal makeup. However if you want to take advantage of Christiné’s skills here is your opportunity to see what an experienced artist would do. In most cases that is why you hire a makeup artist and hair stylist so they can give you your best possible look.
Normally most important is to make sure you and any others in your group who are getting makeup, come with “clean, recently moisturized skin”. Left-over makeup from the night before is a no-no. If we have to remove old makeup it takes additional time and can also stress the skin. We also do not recommend facials within 3 days of your service.
Hair usually styles better if it is “day old” with a bit of left-over hair spray or styling products still in it. Fresh washed is more difficult to style. Please make sure that everyone comes with dry hair. Blow drying wet hair can delay the start of work by as much as 20 minutes and it is an additional cost and should be ordered as a “add-on” service. For best results, hair that is to be curled should not have been “straightened” since its last washing.
