FAQs

General

Do you go on location?

Absolutely! We can travel to your location for all wedding day services or you can come to our salon schedule permitting. Our team members come prepared and ready to make your getting ready prep day easy, enjoyable, stress free, and fun!

How far in advance should I book?

While we do have a great team that can handle multiple weddings on the same day, we still very often get booked 6-12 months in advance. We recommend booking as early as possible to ensure we have your date available.

 

Do I need a beauty preview trial?

That is totally up to you! A beauty preview is a test-run with your makeup and/or hair so you can get a good idea of what to expect on your wedding day. We do recommend doing a preview however it is not required. Many of our brides are from out of the state or country so it’s just not possible. But that doesn’t stop us from providing outstanding results every time.

The best time to book a preview is 2-4 months prior to the big day.

Will the team members at my hair and makeup preview be the same people on my wedding day?

Yes, the same artist and stylist will be the same as on your wedding day. ONLY in the case of an emergency will you have different team members on your wedding day. Which is why it is great you’re booking with a company that can take care of you in every way possible!

Where do M3 Wedding Previews take place?

Previews are done at our lovely salon located in Winter Park, Fl. We have the correct makeup lighting and set up to give the best possible results. We do realize that this is not always possible for out of town brides therefore we can arrange on-location previews. We’re flexible and easy to work with!

What forms of payment do you accept?

Cash, check, and all major credit cards. We don’t ding you for extra fees!

Is gratuity included?

Gratuity is not included however it is greatly appreciated by your M3 team member(s). If you’re happy with your service, 15-20% is customary.

Wedding Makeup

Why should I hire a makeup artist for my wedding?

Three simple and critical reasons;

1> Training, experience, and extensive high-end products guarantee you get the best-possible results in-person and in all your photos taken with today’s high-definition cameras.
2> Convenience and less stress! You’d be amazed how much of a difference having a relaxed and experienced pro team handling your beauty needs on a day where every minute counts.

3> Some brides are willing to pay thousands for the perfect photographer, but yet haven’t considered hiring a makeup artist to ensure those pictures come out as good as possible. The one thing you will have forever are your pictures and you want to look your absolute best. So our question to you is, “Why wouldn’t you hire a professional makeup artist?”

What if I have a large bridal party with time constraints?

M3 Beauty has well trained makeup artists and is able to send out two or more makeup artists to your wedding location. This will ensure everyone gets done by professionals in a timely manner.

What should I do to prepare for my wedding day?

Be sure to drink lots of water and get plenty of rest the weeks leading up to your wedding. You should not do anything out of the ordinary within two weeks of the big day. It is strongly recommended that you do not get a facial within a week of your wedding or trial. Please arrive with clean, makeup-free, moisturized skin.

Do you offer airbrush makeup?

Yes. This a red-carpet service upgrade that many of our brides simply fall in love with. Unlike traditional makeup, airbrushing sprays a fine mist so the makeup blends evenly on the skin. Our foundations provide the flawless coverage of your preference (from sheer to full) and minimizes skin imperfections. The result is a natural and flawless finish.  Airbrush is long lasting, up to 12 hours and HD quality.

Can M3 apply false lashes?

Yes! We always have an assortment of false lashes on hand. The styles of the lashes go from extremely natural to Va Va Voom!

Will my makeup last throughout the day/evening?

Absolutely. We use special products to help the makeup last throughout the duration of your event. We will also be able to give you tips and techniques for ensuring its longevity and what to do for touchups. For brides that want the red carpet treatment we also offer all-day packages where your makeup artist is always ready for touchups and even a new look for the reception!

 

How long does it take to do the makeup applications?

For bridesmaids, mother of bride, mother of groom, and anyone else interested in having their makeup applied, we like to allow 30 minutes per application or 40 minutes when adding false lashes.
For the bride we prefer 1 hour. This gives us plenty of time for an exceptional attention to detail so your closeups come out great.

What types of looks can you do for a bride?

This is completely up to the bride. We encourage the bride to do research to get an idea of what she is looking for and even bring in pictures of reference. This will help your makeup artist understand more of what look you’re wishing to achieve. This is also when a trial comes in handy. For looks, we have done everything from natural to very glamorous or even themed. The key is we listen closely to what the bride wants and elaborate on that. We typically find that most brides want to still look like themselves, just a more perfected version.

Wedding Hair

What do I need for the hair trial?

Be sure to bring any items that will be in your hair such as a headband, veil, or other hair adornments. Also bring a photo of the dress and any pictures you think might be useful in explaining what look you want.

 

What should I expect from a great hair stylist?

Aside from creativity, skill, and professionalism, a great stylist is going to be considering a lot more than just your hair! They are going to be focusing on your face shape, hair type, humidity conditions, hair props, dress cut, and more! No matter what style you might have your heart set on, you should always carefully consider your stylists suggestions.

What do my bridal party and I need to do to prepare hair for the wedding day?

Wash your hair the day before or the morning of the wedding. Wear button down blouse, tube top or a deep v-neck shirt and bring your hair accessories such as veil or tiara!. For updos, be sure your hair is dry and clean. Everyone should arrive with dry hair because blow drying takes time and is considered an added service. If you are getting the extra service blow dry, then you will need to wash your hair and leave it damp and ready for styling.

How long does it take to style hair?

For bridesmaids, mother of bride, mother of groom, and anyone else interested in having their hair styled, we like to allow 30-40 minutes. For the bride we prefer 1 hour. This gives us plenty of time for an exceptional attention to detail so your closeups come out great.
