Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. I want to hire Danielle for my event, but because my wedding is so far away I donít know how many people will want their hair and makeup done. What are my options?
A. If you are unsure about the number of people needing services for your event and Danielle has the date available, we recommend booking services for yourself (the bride) at this time for $300.00. This ensures that you (the bride) will be well taken care of. If later during the planning process you have others to add on and will meet the $450.00 minimum and the time is available to accommodate everyone, services may be added. If the $450.00 minimum is met regular pricing will apply.
Q. How soon should I book hair and makeup for my event?
A. Whenever you are ready. Keep in mind that Danielle can book up to a year and half (1 1/2) out. So, to ensure availability, contact us as soon as you can.

A. Absolutely! The fee for Bride Hair and Makeup only is $300.00
