Whether your signature style is romantic, sexy, flowing, chic, modern, wavy, textured, beachy, soft, glamorous, or flirty, we will work with you to make it a reality on your wedding day. Updos, half-up styles, down styles—we have the knowhow to create any variation. And our artists can bring fashion-forward thinking to the creation of your look.
We specialize in hair extensions, which are a great option for boosting the length or fullness of your hair, especially if you’re worried about it holding its style all through your wedding day. Your own hair may fall, but the extensions won’t. We offer two options:
• Seamless extensions last for more than a month, from your wedding rehearsal right through your honeymoon, and you won’t even feel them.
• Clip-on extensions are available for purchase or rental for your rehearsal and wedding day. If you purchase them, we will train you to attach them so you can wear them to other special events.
Whether you choose airbrush or traditional makeup, Once Upon A Bride’s artists will create a gorgeous look that lasts all through your wedding day and night.
Airbrush makeup: Airbrush makeup guarantees you’ll look flawless, because it veils imperfections while allowing the skin’s beauty to shine through. It is terrific for covering scars, tattoos, redness, or uneven skin tone and texture, and is ideal for brides with rosacea, blemishes, very oily skin, or hyperpigmentation. As it is waterproof, you need never worry about tears, humidity, or perspiration. We use only the high-quality Temptu and Kett brands.
Traditional makeup: Your artist will use the highest-quality products to ensure you have radiant skin all day long. We customize a formula for you, using a powder or cream foundation or a tinted moisturizer, and create full-coverage makeup that feels light and looks perfect. Our experts’ makeup kits include recognizable names like Nars, Stila, Laura Mercier, Trish McEvoy, Chanel, Bobbi Brown, and Giorgio Armani—and we have some secret favorites to share with you too.
Lashes: Because long lashes can add the final touch to a bridal makeup look, we will enhance your natural lashes for no extra charge. Depending on your signature look, we can apply individual lashes or a full strip of temporary lashes.
