You may schedule your Pre-Wedding Trial on the following days:

Early booking is recommended. Dates fill quickly.

What days can Pre-Wedding trials be scheduled on?

How do I secure my beauty services?

Brides: You can complete your booking with a paid retainer.  Visit the Contact page to inquire.
Note on Weddings - Both paid retainer and signed contract are required.  This means that until your paid retainer and signed contract are submitted, your date is not secured and can be booked by any inquiry at any time. It is never too early to book your date!

All other clients: You can book 24/7 by visiting our Services menu.

Are there any early morning fees?

We start services as early as 8:00 am without fees. We do offer a waitlist for early morning weddings (start time before 8:00 am)  and you can sign up here<<<<

My timeline is short, how much is it to add an artist?

Heather is  a solo artist as of December 1, 2022.

If anyone in my party change their mind on services am I responsible?

After submission of your contract, you will be responsible for the service totals and any potential cost changes as indicated in your signed contract. 

Why is there an onsite/travel fee ?

The onsite fee covers our drive time, mileage, gas, turning away studio clients during drive times and more to bring beauty to you! They are all included within  your beauty package. If onsite fees are not within your budget or you do not wish to pay an onsite/travel fee, you have the option of coming in to the studio location for your beauty services to be completed.

Is parking included in your rates?

Heather requires valet parking at select hotels and the fee is charged to client room #. If you're lucky, some hotels do provide complimentary parking for wedding vendors, but it's best to arrange that ahead of time to ensure no extra parking fees are charged to your room. All other parking fees can be easily paid through Venmo on the day of the event.

What happens if someone wants their makeup/hair completed last minute and was not already booked?

This happens often! When others notice that there is an artist on the location and see others getting pampered, they ditch their own tools and head over to the my beauty station. Depending on time I may be able to accommodate this, but of course the client that booked ahead of time will have priority and I do not rush current booked clients to fit in extra services. If we do have time, all rates are  listed on the service page. As of 12/9/22 Heather only offers Bride only services.

What is the onsite/travel fee rate?

Onsite fees are already included in each Bridal Package. To see full rate guide. please contact us.

How do I determine if you are the artist to book with?

Choosing the right artist is easy when you consider the following! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This will not only help be sure you are in the right place, but also knowing what to expect prior to booking  so you can decide if I am the right fit for you and your needs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
❤️ You LOVE my portfolio! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

If the above doesn’t resonate with you, I may not be the right fit for you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Still have questions for my human?


I am here for you and I want
you to feel as comfortable
as possible even before
the occasion. 

We're absolutely delighted to move our services to another location of your choice, for a fee of $75/artist within five miles of your original location. We understand this will take some extra time for breaking down, setting up and traveling, so please be prepared to add an hour or more to your timeline. If you're already booked in with us, just drop Heather an email with your request and we'll sort it out if possible.

I will need to get ready at 2 locations, is there a fee to move?

How long do services take to complete?

For the Bride, times can vary but 60 minutes is generally allotted for Hair and 60 minutes for Makeup. 
Although services may be completed early, Heather departs once all services are completed.

My cozy little studio is located at 183 and Lake Creek Pkwy. (upper NW Austin area), zip code 78750.  Centrally located with access to all area venues that do not provide bridal suite hours prior to wedding, as well as our Brides living outside of the Austin area. 

You will receive complete address info after reserving your date.

32 Minute drive to Chapel Dulcinea
31 Minute drive to Villa Antonia
15 Minute drive to Kindred Oaks
19 Minute drive to House on The Hill
33 Minute Drive to Star Hill Ranch
15 Minute Drive to Jennifer's Garden

Where is your studio located?

Do you offer blow out services?

We are an event beauty studio, rather than a salon and we specialize in dry styling to help you look and feel your best. To make sure you have a top-notch experience, we kindly request that you come with your hair already dried. Sadly, we do not provide blow drying services, but we can't wait to help you look amazing!

As an artist, Heather has cultivated her own unique style and techniques.  Photos can be great for inspiration, but it's important to keep realistic expectations in mind. In many pictures, the model may have extensions, a wig, and a different hair texture and length, skin tone and more. If you're on the search for an artist to perfectly replicate a picture, we are afraid that Heather may not be the artist for you. In terms of Heather's artistry, her style tends to lean towards an earthy, boho aesthetic. with a goal and style to simply enhance a client's features while staying true to the individual's features and not changing them. All about creating a sheer, more natural look with just the right amount of enhancement for eyes and don't include dramatic or glam into her style. and organic, and taking pleasure in creating instead of  duplicating. I recommend choosing looks from my Pinterest board or my portfolio

Can you duplicate a makeup/hair look from pictures in on pinterest? 

Brides: Do I need to have a Pre-Wedding Trial?

We understand how stressful wedding planning can be, so we want to make sure you feel secure and confident before booking your services. That's why we require bridal trials before booking — so you can be sure that you're 100 % sure you love Heather's artistic approach to makeup and hair before commiting.

Live out of state?
When it comes to planning your bridal look, it can be tricky if you live out of state. Fortunately, if you are coming in for a tasting, dress alterations, venue visits, or other vendor meetings you can coordinate a trial during that time.

Trials can be scheduled on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:30 am - 4:00 pm at Heather's NW Austin studio. Unfortunately, due to the beauty of working with natural light, we have to limit our appointments to during the day.

Do you provide a touch up kit?

Wedding Day Touch Up kits are not available in advance as we may need different color options and brands, but don't worry! If you are having a pre-wedding trial we can figure out the perfect lipstick color for your look and Heather will guide you on what else you may need. That way its the perfect fit!

Do you offer airbrush makeup?

What a great question! Heather's makeup style is all about achieving a natural sheerer look and letting the client's beautiful skin still show through (while covering anything you feel are imperfections). We don't use airbrush techniques as artistically Heather prefers a more sheer, skin-like coverage within her looks. Such as letting freckles show and more.

Are there any Onsite Locations you do not provide services?

Ah, yes. Sadly, we have had some unfortunate experiences with our downtown Austin hotels. Consequently, we are no longer able to provide our services at any of the downtown hotels. 

How long will my makeup and hair last?

Totally understand this concern! This might differ based on your own complexion, whether you touch your face, have oily skin or other factors such as the environment. For hair, if you hair reacts to the elements such as humity or you hair just doesn't hold curl normally, we can't confirm for how long it'll last, sadly. But, Heather's first priority is to aim to make each style and application last as long as possible, guiding clients with her experience professionally, longevity is just something we wouldn't know with 100% certainty without trying it first if that is a concern for a client. You can always have a trial even if you are not a bride! If you do have a trial, Heather will make professional suggestions if your skin and hair do react to the elements normally. It will then be up to you to decide.

The Do No Harm Beauty Commitment - one way to keep the beauty alive

I have made a personal commitment to use #donoharmbeauty to effect change in the world. 

All of the makeup I use is cruelty-free. Always.

Not only do I meticulously research and choose furry-friend friendly products for your beauty experience, but I also give back a portion of my profits to an animal charity that protects animals from cruelty, exploitation, and other abuses. I choose to do this for all the living creatures who don't get a choice.

I have made a personal commitment to use #donoharmbeauty to effect change in the world. 

I love animals, and I think it’s an atrocity that 500,000 animals are harmed and killed each year for the sake of cosmetics testing. This does not have to happen. 

That’s why all of the makeup I use is cruelty-free. Always.

Because kindness starts with choices, even mascara choices.
