FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO I NEED TO PAY A BOOKING FEE?
Yes. To secure your wedding date I require a $150.00 non-refundable booking fee. Wedding dates cannot be held without acceptance of your quote and proof that your deposit has been paid.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK YOU FOR MY WEDDING?
As soon as you have your wedding date confirmed. For instance, most brides book 12-18 months out from their date to ensure availability. The closer you get to your wedding date, the less chance of availability.
WHAT REGIONS DO YOU TRAVEL TO?
Central Coast, Newcastle, The Hunter Valley and Port Stephens. Please note, travel prices are an additional cost to styling.
CAN YOU TRAVEL FURTHER THAN THE ABOVE REGIONS?
Yes, however, accommodation may need to be provided for the night before your event.
DO YOU DO OFFER MAKEUP WITH YOUR HAIR SERVICES?
M Flair Hair Artistry only offers hair services, however I do work alongside some amazing makeup artists who I can highly recommend.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN YOU STYLE ON A WEDDING DAY?
The maximum amount of people I can look after is 8 people.
HOW LONG DOES HAIRSTYLING TAKE?
Depending on your hair thickness, type, length, and styling requirements, please allow 30mins for blow-drys and 1-1.5hrs for all other styling.
When deciding on timing for the day, I like to work backwards from your ceremony time, aiming to start finishing touches 1.5hrs before you walk down the aisle. After that, I count 1hr backwards for each of your guests requiring styling, this gives me your rough start time. This can be tweaked upon your request to be finished earlier on the day.
Please note, for styling started prior to 6.30am, a fee of $15.00 per person will be added to your quote.
DO YOU WORK WITH HAIR EXTENSIONS?
Yes. Clip in extensions or a hair halo are great options for your wedding as they are easy to work with and do not cost a fortune. For more information about hair extensions, click the below link.
ARE YOU COVID-19 SAFE?
Absolutely! Good hand hygiene and sanitary practice is very important. In between each client, alcohol spray is used to sanitise styling equipment, and hand sanitiser is used frequently throughout the day. I carry enough hand sanitiser for myself and everyone who requires styling.
In addition, I request to be in a room that has good ventilation, natural sunlight/decent lighting, and a clean surface area to work from.
I am also a fully vaccinated wedding supplier.
DO YOU HAVE COVID-19 TERMS AND CONDITIONS?
