the best thing you can do is a proper skincare routine.
please properly cleanse your skin and gently exfoliate the night before or the morning of.
please do any brow clean-ups, facials, or lash refills at least 2-5 days before.
the best thing you can do is a proper haircare routine or treatment. I prefer if you do not wash your hair the morning of unless adding on a blow dry service. For very thick, long, or 3a and up curls, let's discuss and come up with the best prep plan!
don't forget to schedule your pre-shoot consult. let's talk idea, moods and ill let you know what to expect and how to prepare.

after completing each finished look, I like to document my work and take photos to share with future clients. please state if you are uncomfortable with photos and/or videos being shared with future clients either privately or online. I understand this may be used on social media, physical or digital publications, or other promotional sources.
I understand it is my obligation to inform Artistry by Kelsea of any known allergies to products or ingredients. Artistry by Kelsea is not responsible for any reaction due to the non-disclosure of allergies. Please notify us of any allergies ASAP.
the answer to this question depends on a few things...
are you sure of the look you want, and can you describe it well? are you happy in how you do your own hair and makeup? do you have photo examples of the looks you want?
If you don't wear makeup often or really know what you like, I 100% recommend a trial.
a trial is not necessary however, I highly recommend one 2-3 months before your date.
There is no service minimum for in-studio appointments. there is a
4-service minimum for Saturdays,
hair is one service and makeup is one service, so if you have hair AND makeup for 3, that's 6 services :)
how does the day go?
7-14 days before your wedding, you will receive a schedule for the day of your wedding, based on the information I have. If there are any last-minute changes please notify me as soon as possible.
to book the date and time requested, a 50% non-refundable retainer and a signed contract, must be completed within 7 days. The retainer goes towards the total cost of the service.
the remainder of the payment is due 30 days before the service date. we will attempt to contact and collect payment and if unsuccessful, Artistry by Kelsea will not be expected to complete services without payment in full.
you have one courtesy transfer of date within 30 days with no penalty. more than one reschedule or after 30 days may result in additional fees.
30 days from the service date to cancel and request a refund for the full amount, other than the non-refundable retainer.
