You may schedule your Pre-Wedding Trial on the following days:
Tuesday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm & Wednesday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Thursday - Sunday are Onsite Wedding Days

Early booking is recommended. Dates fill quickly.

Why is there a rate difference for onsite services versus the studio location?

What days can Pre-Wedding trials be scheduled on?

There is a service rate difference for onsite services, for the convenience of having beauty services brought to your location with a complete set up (all tools & gear needed) to perform beauty services at your location, versus the studio location, which is already equipped with a complete setup ready to perform beauty services. We are happy and able to be flexible and come to you for your services by leaving our studio location, however, this requires extra time before and after your beauty services and we turn away clients during our travel times to your location. We must pack up and setup all supplies and gear needed to complete services, at  your location. This rate difference includes that time and convenience for services being brought to you. If this rate difference for onsite services  are not within your budget, you have the option of coming in to the studio.

How do I secure my beauty services?

Schedule your services here to get started! You can complete your booking with a paid retainer.  
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!

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 and loves and specializes in small wedding parties, bride only beauty, intimate weddings, elopements, and micro weddings. 
Max Services: 6 (not people)
1 Beauty Service = 1 Hair
1 Beauty Service = 1 Makeup

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

Upon booking and securing your event date, a confirmed number of services must be submitted.  After submission of your contract you are responsible for service totals and any cost adjustments based on your contract terms. See your proposal.
You can always have them pay you via Venmo when they decide to book services in advance, if they are paying for their own services to.

Why is there an onsite/travel fee ?

The onsite fee covers our drive time, mileage, gas, turning away 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 parks valet if services are performed at select hotels. Some hotels provide complimentary parking for wedding vendors, but you must set that up in advance; otherwise, parking fees can be charged to your room.
All other parking fees can be paid via Venmo on the event date.

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.

What is the onsite/travel fee rate?

HMB doesn't have a minimum for services! But rather a max. Woot! Your onsite fee is already included in your package of choice when booking. 

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! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All work within the portfolio (hair & makeup) has been completed by Heather Maria. Does my style resonate with you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✊ You respect our POLICIES & RATES⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be sure you are okay and agree with all policies & rates on the proposal
before booking with us. Your proposal will contain our rates and policies you can expect before you decide to book. Be sure to read it entirely.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ You TRUST me & it just feels RIGHT⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

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 will be glad to move from your primary getting ready location to another location of your choice. The fee is $75/artist within 5 miles of your original location. Keep in mind this will take addition time for break down and set up as well as travel. You can expect to add an hour or more to your timeline, for this move. If you have already booked your services, we can arrange for this! Just send Heather an email with your request.

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

How long do services take to complete?

For service scheduling, Heather allots 45 Minutes for Friends and Family services, Hair 45 minutes, Makeup 45 minutes with the possibility of finishing earlier than that.
For the Bride, times can vary but 60 minutes is generally allotted for Hair and 60 minutes for Makeup. 
Although we may finish early, Heather rather have extra time than causing the Bride and her party to run late. Although services may be completed early, Heather departs once all services are completed.

If Heather brings an assistant artist, this time can change. Once booked and planned, you will receive your wedding day itinerary and schedule to know what to except. If you have any further questions regarding timelines, you may schedule a phone chat to discuss.

My cozy little studio is located at 183 and Anderson Mill Rd. (upper NW Austin area), zip code 78729.  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

Where is your studio located?

It's an ever changing thing and its hard to know what protocols and guidance will be in place at the time of your services. Here is a complete guide on what you can expect during the unexpected.


Do you have Covid Guidelines during services?

Do you offer blow out services?

Only dry styling here! HMB only styles dry hair and require everyone receiving services to have dry hair on the day of their appointment, we do not provide blow dryers. 

As an artist, we all have our own styles and techniques. A picture is great for an idea, but realistic expectations must be put into consideration. The artists own style and in many photos, the model may be wearing extensions, a wig, and can have a totally different type of hair texture and length, skin tone and more. If you are looking for an artist to perfectly duplicate a picture, I may not be the artist for you. My approach is natural and organic and while I love pictures for an idea, I love creating and not completely duplicating! Clients that enjoy working with me, include those that enjoy and trust my custom artistic approach. I recommend choosing looks from my Pinterest board or my portfolio

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

Do I need to have a Pre-Wedding Trial?

Heather recommends the following to help you decide if you need a pre-wedding trial:

You need a trial if......
  • If you have a specific look you would like to try (within Heather's artistic style) or a style you have in mind but aren't sure about how it would look on you.
  • Want to go over a few styles and collaborate with Heather for style advice.
  • You want to be prepared before the wedding day.

You do not need a trial if......
  • You are easy going when it comes to picking your wedding day look and fully trust Heather to create a beautiful look on the wedding day from the styles similar to her portfolio.

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?


Are there any Onsite Locations you don't go to that are still in your area? 

Yes. Unfortunately we have had multiple issues regarding hotels that require a key to access certain floors of the hotel. We no longer perform onsite services at any downtown Austin hotels. 

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.
