Can you accommodate any last minute add-on services on the wedding day?

If time permits, we will gladly do them as long as it does not interfere with the original timeline or your scheduled departure time. This is very common after seeing someone who has just received services from us.


How far in advance should I book you?

ASAP! The sooner you book Something Blu, the more likely it is that we will have your date available. We operate on a first come, first served basis so the earlier you book us, the better.  Your date will not be secured until we have received your signed contract and deposit. 


Do you have experience with all ethnicities?


All our artists are experienced and trained for every ethnicity, hair texture and skin tone.



When should I schedule my trial?


We recommend you schedule your trial at least 2 months in advance.  If you are receiving both hair & makeup services from us, we will schedule both trials together.


What if I want to try out several different styles?


Our trials include, a detailed consultation and 1 hour with your artist.  This usually is enough time for 1 look, maybe 2, depending how elaborate your look is, how much hair you have, etc.  



Do I have to book both hair & makeup services?


No, you do not need to book both.  We have had many bridal parties book us for just hair OR just makeup.



I love your work and would love to book you.  How do I do so?


Great!  In order for us to guarantee your date, we require a signed contract along with a deposit which will be applied toward your wedding day total.  Email us at info@somethingblubeauty.com or fill out the form on our Home or Contact pages and we will be happy to provide our bridal contract and answer any questions you might have.
