Hair + Makeup Artistry

DISCLAIMER: We love working with hair and makeup artists, but we take no part in hiring an HMUA for you, nor do we take any responsibility for artists cancelling on you – like actors, they  sometimes need to take a good gig when they get it. You enter into this agreement with your HMUA directly. We highly encourage you to keep communication open and clear throughout your planning process. Before you hire a makeup artist, look at their work, confirm their rate, and ask about their cancellation policy.

Let us know if you’re planning on hiring a HMUA and if you need prep space before your session. We can provide up to 75 minutes of prep time prior to your session to get ready with them at the studio (but only if we know you need it and have scheduled you accordingly). If you need more time, you will need to arrange an off-site prep space with your HMUA beforehand.

A few other things to keep in mind:

If you require specialty makeup – eg: goth, punk, glam, hosting, beauty – you will want to schedule, at minimum, a 2-hour session for no more than 4 looks (3 hrs w/HMUA). If time allows, we’ll be happy to work in more looks. If you absolutely need more looks, you will need to book more time. Specialty makeup may incur a higher fee with your makeup artist, so be upfront about it.

You are not required to hire an HMUA from the list below. If you hire a different HMUA, please be sure they know how to do headshot hair and makeup. It is different from beauty, glam, and special effects makeup. These are headshots that should look like you, not you at your wedding, not you on the red carpet, but you when you walk into the audition room.

Lastly, remember that your makeup artist works in very close proximity to your face. Respect them and us by not coming to your session if you’re sick. Let us know and we’ll work with you.
