Do you provide hair services as well?
DeeVa Beauty works with several very talented and qualified hairstylists that can be available to you should you also need this service. However, please note that these hair stylists are independent contractors and need to know ASAP of your date to make sure they are available.You can also hire Deirdre for makeup alone and choose your own hairstylist.
Can you service a large group or bridal party?
Yes! In the event of larger bridal/event bookings, second artists can be secured that can help when timing is not available to allow just one artist.
Do you have a minimum requirement for mobile services?
Yes, there are minimums for travel. 4 people is the minimum for mobile services.
During ‘Peak’ Wedding Season, weekends, and/or Holidays this minimum may be increased. Travel fee will incur outside of the 20 mile radius of Nutley, NJ
Travel for party's of 3 or less are subject to an additional fee depending on day, time of year and location, in addition to any travel fee. Please inquire.
If you cannot meet the minimum, you are always invited to have your makeup done at my studio location in Nutley on the day of your event if I have the date available.
Please inquire for more details.
Can I book my wedding date without having a trial session first?
Absolutely! This gives you peace of mind knowing your date is secured and services are booked, and allows you ample time to find your dress, any accessories needed such as jewelry, headpieces/Veil, but also collect images of Hair/Makeup styles you like, color schemes and more, all of which is closely worked with when constructing your personalized ‘look’. Then about 1- 2 months before the wedding you can schedule your trial.
Please note though that if you choose to come in for your trial first and after your trial session should you choose to wait on booking to secure your date/services (with signed contract/retainer) your date still remains open and is available to another bride, regardless of trial completed, as all services are booked first come first serve.
Wedding dates are not held by submitting an inquiry, or making any other form of contact, or coming for a trial.
We do not ‘hold’ dates without both a retainer and a signed contract.
If a trial needs to be booked out 3 weeks or later a $95. deposit is required to 'hold' your wedding date until your trial. This is then put towards your trial when you come.
How long is the trial, and what can I expect?
Makeup trials can last up to 90 minutes.
Hair and makeup together can be 2- 2 1/2 hours or a bit longer.
Here is where we will sit down and discuss your vision and your needs.
Your skin will be assessed, and you will be given tips and advice on ways to get your skin in the best shape it can be by your wedding day.
Makeup will be applied, adding or subtracting as we go along until we find "your look!
Photos will be taken Before and After to assure that you will know just how you are going to look on your day.
We will go over contract, and should you wish to book, a non-refundable retainer, and a signed contract will secure your date.
What about my fiancé? Do you provide men's grooming services as well?
Yes! DeeVa Beauty will help the man/men in your life look their best as well.
Eyebrow grooming and powder are common requests. However for those that may need it; natural looking and virtually invisible foundation/concealer can be applied to areas that may need it (under eyes, blemishes)
Will you stay for touch-ups?
Yes, I am available at an hourly rate to stay by your side on your special day for touch up services.
Should you not need full day services, a common addition may be for a reception changeover of your Make-up look instead, done just shortly before your reception portion. Please inquire to availability.
Please note this is an additional fee that is charged after original makeup services are rendered.
What happens if someone wants their Make-up/Hair done last minute?
Yes! It is common on the day of the wedding that after seeing someone who has just received Make-up services that they now want to look as great. We schedule services and start times depending on the number of clients booked, however, time permitting we will gladly do any extra persons makeup as long as it does not interfere with the original members of bridal party that has already booked in for services with DeeVa Beauty.
How long does a makeup application take on the wedding day?
Please allow 1 full hour for the bride and 35-45 minutes for each additional person, depending if eyelashes are being applied.
As well as additional time for makeup artist to ‘set up’, and it is always best to be prepared to allow for some extra time for any unforeseen circumstances, than to fall short and be rushed.
This day should be as relaxed and stress-free for you as possible.
Is there an additional ‘travel’ fee??
Depending on your location and travel time an additional reasonable travel fee may apply. Included in pricing is 20 minutes ‘each way’ of zip code 07110 after which there is a reasonable travel fee.
