Question: How many artist/stylist come on wedding days and do you ever charge for extra? Does Kayla work every single booking?
Answer Part 1: The Kayla Walters Hair and Makeup Team is a boutique style team. Meaning we strive to provide a personalized experience and take on minimal weddings in a weekend. On wedding days there will be one stylist or Kayla focusing on providing hair services to the entire bridal party. If Kayla is hired as the key stylist/artist she will serve the bride by doing her hair and makeup. Team makeup artist will serve all other clients. Depending on the bridal party size at a minimum on wedding days it will be 1 stylist plus 1 makeup artist. Extra artist will be brought in when there are more than 10-12 women needing services and are various timing restrictions, extra artist fees may apply as outlined in that segment of the contract. Hair assistant(s) are also brought in to serve larger parties. If you wish to have additional team members on your wedding day please refer to the "extra artist fee" highlighted below.
Those situations require us to bring all hands on deck but doing so there is am extra artist fee associated
1. In circumstances where you request an extra artist / stylist to serve your party size of 8 guest or less
2. When there are time limitations that require your bridal party to be ready prior to 11:00am
- Most common for brides with brunch weddings
3. When your booked venue does not permit access PRIOR to 10:00am.
- It is recommended to use an off site location if your venue limits your wedding day access. Most bridal party schedules start around 8:00am.
The Fee is As Followed : $275 per makeup artist & $120 per hair assistant.
Answer Part 2: Kayla has created a boutique business model for her on location hair and makeup company. While she would love to work every single one of them she doesn’t. She has hand picked her team with artist and stylist who have like minds to provide exquisite on site wedding day services.
