INFO FOR BEAUTY & HEALTH

What beauty services do you offer?
Hair, Makeup
Do you offer trials and consultations?
Yes
Can you service a large group or bridal party?
Yes
Do you charge for trials?
Yes - trials are a one-on-one focused session with the bride to discuss your desires, wants, and needs for your special day. The trial includes color choice consultation, skin profile, full makeup application and hair styling.
Do you travel to the client on the day of the event? If yes, is there a fee?
Yes of course! We are happy to travel to your venue, home or special event location. We also offer the option to get ready at our studio for a lower rate. Generally there is no fee for travel as we offer a complimentary travel distance is 20 miles from Fairfax VA. Anything over this distance is a fee of $2 per mile.
How many customers can you serve at one time if the bride were to book her entire bridal party? Are there discounts for doing so?
Yes I can serve as many as needed and as time allows! I work with other extremely talented makeup artists, and we work in-tandem for large bridal parties, or if there is a limited amount of time to get ready.
How far in advance should clients book your services?
I recommend booking as soon as possible - I really hate to disappoint a bride and tell her we are already booked! In order to provide the best and most personalized service to every bride, we will only book one wedding per weekend.
 
 In light of today's economy and stretched wedding budgets, my rates are very reasonable and affordable for this area. I book months, even years, in advance. I recommend booking as early as possible in order to secure your event date.
What is your cancellation policy?
Hopefully everything will go as planned and you won't need to cancel! If you do, kindly notify me as soon as possible. Any cancellation notifications must be received in writing ONE MONTH prior to the event date, or full payment will be required. Any retainer to secure your event date is not refundable. All payments are non-refundable, and are non-transferrable.

Meredith did an amazing job on my makeup for the wedding and her colleague Lauren did a fabulous job on my hair! They also did a truly wonderful job with my bridesmaids. They all looked stunning.

Meredith and Lauren were very patient during the trial. I don't usually wear makeup and was going for a natural look and Meredith really worked with me to achieve that and to make me feel comfortable with the amount of makeup I was wearing. Lauren nailed my hair, too! Perfection! I got compliments all night specifically on my hair and makeup. I was truly surprised by the number of comments I got on them--people really noticed the great work! We had a very long day that was unseasonably hot (about 90 degrees in October in the DC area!) but whatever Meredith did lasted all day and continued to look fantastic through dancing and everything!

Meredith also provided me with the info on the makeup she used, some of which I'll be using again in the future, so it was nice to know. In addition, she sent me pictures from the trial so I had some time to reflect on how everything looked in photos and whether I wanted to make any changes. Meredith not only made my makeup look and FEEL great, but really was knowledgable about what to use and how it would turn out not only in person but in photos.

Meredith was incredibly organized in creating a schedule for me and the girls and was flexible, but yet kept us on track. Meredith and Lauren not only did an amazing job but were a true pleasure to be with on my wedding day. Fantastic all around--HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended!

Meredith and Lesley were so great to work with. Meredith did my makeup, my mom and one of my bridesmaids. And Lesley did my hair, my mom and three of my bridesmaids. And everyone looked so beautiful. My hair and make up came out exactly how I imagined. Our hair and makeup survived the entire day and we looked so good in the pictures. And Meredith and Lesley also was so gracious and helped my MIL when her hair went a little flat. They were awesome and I would recommend Bridal Beauty by Meredith in a heart beat.

On June 29th, I had the privilege of Meredith and her team doing hair and makeup for both myself and all of my bridesmaids. Even though I had a very large bridal party and a tight schedule to keep, Meredith and her team kept everything running smoothly and calmly. It was truly a relief for me on my wedding day to have all of my bridesmaids so excited at how good their hair and makeup looked, and that everyone was relaxed and enjoying themselves throughout the whole process. When it came time for me to get my hair and makeup done, I could not have been happier! Everything was absolutely perfect! Meredith made my makeup look stunning and Leslie did a fantastic job with my hair. They worked very efficiently and did everything perfectly the first time. Additionally, they both kept completely in theme with my Gatsby-esque wedding. I was able to get the perfect 1920's vibe that I was looking for, which was completely thanks to Meredith and Leslie! I had also wanted to change my hairstyle in between the ceremony and the reception. They stayed on an extra 2 hours to make sure that I was able to have the perfect hairstyle change for the reception, and they even made sure that I had cold water to cool down on a hot June day in Virginia! They were extremely thoughtful and were also very efficient in completely the second hairstyle. Everyone was raving over my 1920's hairstyle, and numerous guests asked me who did my hair and makeup. My hairstyle and makeup held up through the hot weather, dancing, and the after-party, as did that of my bridesmaids. Everyone was extremely pleased, and Meredith's services were instrumental in making my wedding a success. I would HIGHLY recommend Meredith and her team's services to any Bride!

Having Meredith and Lauren do my hair and makeup for my wedding day was such a great decision! I did a trial run prior to the day and it was so nice to see an example of how I would look. They were very flexible to any changes I wanted to make, and made sure I was happy with the results. On the wedding day, they were professional and worked fast, but I never felt rushed. They were so pleasant to be around and went out of their way to make sure everyone was satisfied with their hair and makeup. I would recommend them to anyone!

the only way i can really describe meredith is awesome! from the moment i contacted her, to late into the night the night before my wedding, she was always so responsive to emails and communications. when i met her for my trial, i knew that we would end up working together. she was so flexible, so accommodating and so super nice. not to mention, her work is truly fantastic! she accommodated my large group (10 of us i believe) very easily, arrived promptly on time and finished at the time she said she would. her and her assistant were fun, easy going and great natured and made the process so fun for me and my girls. i love my bmaids and they're all beautiful, but when meredith was done with them, it was like nothing i had ever seen, they looked absolutely fantastic! not to toot my own horn, but i looked pretty hot myself =) i received compliments all night long on how great my make up looked -- and it never came off. even through all my dancing.

meredith is awesome, i would recommend working with her 100%!

Meredith was absolutely amazing!!! I have never felt more beautiful than I did on my wedding day.  Meredith listened to what I wanted and didn't overdue  it. Which is what  I was nervous about never having my makeup professionally done before. I had no reason to worry! Even my guests were impressed with the makeup Meredith did on myself, bridesmaids and my mom. I highly recommend Meredith if you want to look beautiful for your event!

Meredith, Lauren and Courtney came to my wedding location and did hair and make-up for me, my 3 bridesmaids, my mother and future mother-in-law. They were extremely professional and a lot of fun! Everyone felt so special and pampered.

I don't normally wear make-up, and Meredith made me feel gorgeous and comfortable with the look. Meredith really catered to each of our styles and preferences, and the make-up lasted all through the afternoon and evening. The touch-up bags she gave us were really thoughtful. My trial prior to the wedding was great, but nothing can compare to how I felt on my wedding day, thanks to Meredith!

Lauren and Courtney were amazing! We all loved our hair, and again, each one of us felt so special and really felt that Lauren and Courtney listened to us and made us look our absolute best. My hair held its curl all night (a first for me), and each bridesmaid and mom loved their hair.

They were with us for about 4 hours on the day of my wedding, and we had so much fun! Lots of laughs, lots of photos, lots of glamour...it couldn't have been a better experience in my opinion.
