We offer Threading, Herbal facials, Body waxing, face bleach, henna on hair, head massage, makeup, hair, & mehendi services for brides, and all other events. We also offer makeup and hair for photography, editorial, fashion shows, and stage performances.
I try to pick and choose my favorite products from many leading lines. Each cosmetic brand has something unique about it, and I am always willing to experiment new products and see if it fits my needs and my clients needs. I never purchase drugstore brands to use on my clients, as I am maintaining a quality and always try to introduce the best brands of products that I use and represent.
Sanitation is very important to us and we take great care in sanitizing our tools, makeup, and brushes before using it on a new client.
On the day of consultation, I usually try to gather all the info re your timeline, how many times you need to get ready for, who else wants to get ready, the colors of your outfit, location you are getting ready at, pre bridal services you should be getting done etc. Consultation is FREE. It usually takes 30-45 mins. I also offer phone consultion, if a bride is out of state.
We recommend you should book it as soon as possible ..As I get booked sometimes 4-6 months before the actual event. We can go over all the details, regarding your all over look. Trial day is the day we can experiment different styles & looks on you, as there is no time to experiment any new thing on the day of wedding. You can go through bridal magazines to search the looks & hair styles you want to try. Once you like the trial I put everything on a face chart, including products we used, and the look designed for you. After that you have to sign a contract, with 50% deposit (non-refundable) to book our services. Once the contract is signed, we book that day, time, & slot for you..
Like most vendors, there are no refunds in deposits paid toward a bridal booking. We as wedding vendors block out a certain amount of time/days toward each booking, preventing others from taking your blocked time. If you cancel the contract, unfortunately your deposit will be forfeited.
No, each package is priced separately. One makeup and one hairstyle at one location/one time would be one package. If you book me for 2-3 wedding events, as in Reception and mehendi/sangeet, I try to customize your wedding package with some discount.Your one time bridal package includes hair, makeup, & dupatta pinning/saree draping/assistance in putting jewelry on. We don’t leave till you are fully ready & satisfied.

Yes, I do carry some jewels and hair accessories that I sell, its not included in the hair style. But always encourage the clients to buy their own matching with their outfit/theme.
No. the client has to provide us with the hair extensions, as it must be matched to your hair color/texture. I don’t charge extra for using extensions for styles.

Yes, We know 10-12 different styles of saree draping and can handle large group of clients (bridemaids/guests). We drape a saree in a very professional & bollywood style that it stays on through out the day. 🙂
Yes, most of the time we travel on location, as its convenient for the bride and the clients.
Travel fee varies depending upon the location. Toll and parking must be reimbursed. Flat rate fee for SF and surrounding areas in the Peninsula: $75 (includes toll, parking fees are extra if exceeds $10).
When choosing a start time, keep in mind that bridal hair and makeup typically take 2-3 hours on average to complete depending on the style. Blow dry is not included in any bridal or special event service, so hair must be 100% dry and ready to be worked on prior to start time. We prefer you wash hair a day before the event, as fresh washed hair is very hard to manage. Start times before 7:30 am are subject to an additional $50 fee, and this includes driving time if it’s over 15 minutes, Please also note the additional $75 fee for waiting time. I understand that sometimes things don’t run on time..I can accommodate 15-30 mins waiting time, after that I start charging $75 per hour, as an extra time..
We cover all areas in the South Bay, North Bay, and East Bay. Travel fees may apply.
When choosing an on-site service, a travel fee may apply for locations outside of Santa Clara County or Alameda County. The cost will vary depending on location. If additional artists are needed for larger bridal parties, travel fees may apply for them. All parking or valet charges are covered by the client.
Packages for destination weddings are available upon request. Airfare, accommodations, transportation and travel will apply. Please provide as much as information as you can when inquiring.
A trial is highly recommended because we want to create the best look and outcome for your big day. A trial provides an opportunity to meet, discuss and try out the styles you have in mind for your wedding day. You can prepare your trial by gathering hair inspirations and pictures of yourself with makeup on for a special occasion. Visuals are very helpful for us to get an idea of what you like.
Please come to your trial appointment with clean dry hair. Face moisturized but without makeup on.
We suggest scheduling the trial 2-3 months before your wedding day. However, if you want to do a trial before booking an artist we suggest coming in as soon as possible since we don’t hold dates without a signed contract and deposit. Then you can come back to meet with that artist closer to the date to discuss any final details. Trials are done by appointments only.
Please allow about 2 hours for your hair and makeup trial to permit time to try of one or two looks.
Yes. That will be ideal.
We normally book 2-3 hours. Everyone including the bride will be completed within this time. Depending on the group size, the lead artist may recommend additional artists to help to get everything done within this time. As a general guide, the bridal party or anyone else will take about 30-40 minutes per person for makeup only. If both hair and makeup are required permit an 1+ hour per person.
If the bridal party requires more services than the main artist can provide within the given time, we will add additional artists to ensure that everyone is ready on time. Please provide us with your final headcount and type of services they would like so we can let you know how many artists will be required.
Please send us an email (click on the Contact Us link).
Please fill out the contract form & email it to us. When you are ready to secure the date and time, please send the contract back filled out, best of your current knowledge, sign and with deposit. There is a 50% deposit required to secure the appointment. The artist will let you know how to process the 50% deposit. After the contract is signed and we receive your deposit the date is reserved for you!
We require a 50% deposit for all services booked to reserve the date. The remaining balance is due the day of the event.
You may cancel your wedding appointment for any reason by sending us written request via email or certified mail. Unfortunately, we cannot refund the deposit.
