Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance should I book my wedding date, for makeup and hair services?

Weddings can be booked up to a year in advance, and no later than 3 months to ensure your date. However, if you are in a pinch, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

When should I book for my makeup and hair Trial?

Trial Runs should be booked 4-6 weeks in advance. We recommend booking your trial on a special day, so that you can show off your beautiful look. Many brides will book it on the day of their bridal shower, engagement shoot or bachelorette party.

How should I prepare my hair and skin for the Trial?

The bride’s hair should be clean and completely dry (washed the night before) in order to have the hair set properly. Brides should moisturize their skin prior to the Trial Run; this will enable the makeup to go on smoother and last longer. Please do not wax your brows or receive a facial closer than 5 days prior to the event.

How long does a Trial Run last?

The bride should give herself an average of 2 hours to ensure she receives exactly what she is looking for.

What is involved in a Trial Run?

We take wedding Trial Runs very seriously. The bride will discuss different looks and the details of her wedding with Lisa Erin or artists and will receive a complete makeup and hair service in our private bridal suite located in Woodland Hills, CA. Please bring your veil and headpiece if you have purchased it. 

Besides bringing in my headpiece and veil to the Trial Run, do I need anything else?

We recommend that the bride to bring in photos of makeup and hair ideas for the wedding day.

Will the artist at my trial be the same artist for my wedding day?

Absolutely! The purpose of your trial is to tryout looks with the artist that will be assigned to you for your wedding day. The day your trial is booked, we place a tentative hold on that artist for your wedding date. However, keep in mind, if we don’t receive your deposit and contract shortly after your trial, we will need to open up the artists availability for that date.

What if I have short hair and want it to look longer, what can I do?

Lisa Erin or your hair artist will discuss with you at your trial and make some recommendations. We can style both clip-in extensions or any type of permanent extensions ie. bead, sewn-in, etc. as long as it is real hair.

Do you offer in-home or on location services for my wedding day makeup and hair?

Yes! For a minimal additional charge depending on location.

Why should I hire Lisa Erin and Beauty Lounge LA's bridal team for my big day?

First of all, hiring a professional hair and makeup company that you can rely on will give you the peace of mind on your wedding day. We hear too many sad stories about individual freelance artists falling through. We guarantee that this won’t happen. You will sign a contract that ensures you are locked in for your big day.
Secondly, our artists are all professionally trained in bridal beauty. We know what looks good on camera and what will last through sweat and tears.
Lastly, you won’t find a more fun team to hang out with on your big day. We are friendly, humble and respectful to all of our clients. We love weddings and have a blast being a part of the experience!

Why is the bride’s hair & makeup more expensive than the bridal party?

For starters, more time and attention is spent with the bride from the very first day of contact, up until the day of the wedding. From phone calls, emails, contracts, and creating day-of schedules to the extra time spent getting the bride ready on her big day, placing her veil, additional touch-up time, and spending extra time on her hair & makeup, our focus is always on her. Since the the bride is the main client, as it’s her wedding day, all of this is included in her price. 

Is there a Deposit required to book my Wedding?

Yes, a $100 deposit is required to secure your chosen artists for your big day.

How long will my makeup and hair take on the wedding day?

We typically spend a total of 2 hours on the bride for hair & makeup. Bridesmaids will take about 45 minutes each service (hair being a service and makeup being another service), unless someone has abnormally long or thick hair. We prefer to do the bride last, or second to last so that she is the most fresh and camera ready.

How should I prepare for my wedding day hair and makeup?

Have everyone in the bridal party arrive with clean, dry hair and clean moisturized skin compatible for fresh makeup. If you have SPF in your moisturizer, we recommend avoiding anything over 15 SPF to avoid the “white face” look in photos. Exfoliate your lips so that your lipstick will stick, and whiten those pearly white teeth so that your smile stands out in photos. On the day of, wear a robe or button down shirt so that your hair will stay in place, and sit back, relax, and enjoy the pampering before you walk down the aisle.
