Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of our most frequently asked questions by brides.

You can start by filling out our inquiry form to make sure we are available for your date and time. (click here) .

We recommend booking 6 months in advanced, however our books are open for up to 12 months in advanced.

To reserve your wedding date and time we require a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable deposit of your entire wedding day services. The final balance total is due 1 week prior to your wedding date. If your wedding is less than 2 weeks away at time of booking, 100% of payment is due. Payment plans are available.

Your date is not secured with Hair and Makeup by Lulu until your contract and retainer have been received, even if you have had a trial run.

Absolutely! Most of our bridal packages include a trial session. This is the best time for us to get to know each other, and for us to fully grasp your needs as a Bride.

Trials are only offered Tuesday – Friday from 1:00 -5:00pm.

PLEASE NOTE: We recommend scheduling your trial run after booking with us. We do not hold wedding dates if we do not have your contract AND deposit. Please keep this in mind If you decide to do a trial run prior to booking your wedding day.

If you will be coming in the week of wedding, we can schedule your trial session sometime during the week you’re here. If you will not be coming in early enough for a trial session at all, we have prepared a Destination Wedding Day Package for you located on our bridal experience page.  This package includes extra time to replace a trial session and be able to make adjustments to achieve your desired hair and makeup look for your wedding day.

Trial sessions take place at Tangles Hair Salon, located at 5925 McArdle Rd, Corpus Christi, Texas 78412. We like to schedule a trial 1-3 months prior to your wedding day. A Hair & Makeup trial takes about 3 hours long without hair extensions. Trial sessions are only available Tuesday – Friday from 1:00 – 5:00 pm.

When you book with us we will send you helpful infographics before your trial session date and before wedding day to help you prep hair and makeup for the day of. Here’s a few ideas: bring pictures of your favorite hairstyle/makeup looks. We highly recommend looking at inspiration photos with your hair type, hair texture and color, the same applies with makeup pictures. If you have dark hair don’t go for pictures with hairstyles of models that have lighter/blonde hair, as hairstyles on brunettes don’t look the same.

Bridal Hairstyling: Make sure your hair is clean and dry. Do not use any hot tools such as a flat or curling iron. Do not use any hair products such as mousse, gel, spray, or oils. Make sure to bring your veil and any bridal hair accessories you plan on using. If possible wear a white or ivory shirt to mimic your dress. This will give you a better idea of how you will look on wedding day. If you’re planning to wear hair extensions on wedding day make sure you set up a consultation with us prior to your trial session, during this time we can guide you into buying the right hair extensions, amount of hair needed, color, etc. If you already own some please be sure to still set up a consultation before your trial session.

Bridal Makeup: Make sure to come in without makeup on for your trial session. If you have any hair above your lip, or excess hair on your face or brows, it might show with your makeup application. 

 To have maximum results with your makeup application it is important to come in with a clean face that is hair free. You can schedule an appointment prior to your trial session.

You do not need to bring your own foundation as we provide everything we need for a makeup application. If there is a foundation you absolutely love or have sensitive skin and would like to use your own, you are welcome to bring it along.

We offer traditional makeup only. Traditional makeup is applied by hand tools such as a brush, or sponge and it can be worked into the skin for an even finish. The coverage of traditional makeup can range from a natural dewy glow to a matte heavy/full coverage based on the formula.

We recommend booking as soon as you have a wedding date/time and know how many ladies will be needing hair/makeup services. As opposed to salon appointments who book weeks in advanced, Bridal makeup artists book up sporadically, months and sometimes a year in advance. Our books are open for up to 12 months in advance. 

It’s important that you know the exact date and time of your wedding day as well as the exact number of hair and makeup services needed. Without this information, we don’t know when to have your hair and makeup ready by or if we are available during the time frame you need us. If you’re engaged but you do not have these details yet, don’t worry! In the meantime you can browse through our website and social media to get to know us better!

Wedding Cancellations must be made 4 weeks prior to your reserved date or you will be responsible for the total amount of services agreed. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.

No. If you choose to cancel your wedding entirely (whether due to personal choice or COVID-19) Depending on the timing, you may be released from any final payment, but the deposit is non-refundable and non-transferable in a cancellation. This is due to the fact that we put in a significant amount of time in communicating with you leading up to your wedding day, we also reserved services for your wedding day and turned down other weddings/bookings.

We can move your wedding date if the reason is due to COVID-19 Government mandates shut down only. Moving dates for any other reason is not acceptable. In the event this happens, we can transfer the initial deposit to a new date without additional cost or penalty. The final payment amount would be transferred to a timeline that fits the new date. If we are not available for your new wedding date deposits will not be refundable as we have held your original date and turned down other weddings.

No. Please follow us on social media to stay up to date with special offers.

We DON’T provide airbrushed makeup. We use high end & luxury makeup products for traditional makeup application. We like to use different brands to be able to provide you with the best possible makeup application according to your needs.
