Please take a moment to read this before hiring the Belle Amour team.
How did you become a hairstylist/makeup artist and where did you go to school?
All of our bridal beauty professionals have a great passion for art and beauty. They have gone to reputable schools (some in Vancouver and Victoria, but most have also trained internationally) and have years of expericence in bridal work, as well as fashion, print, and film. We'll soon be adding individual bios and photos of everyone on our team - so check back soon!
What do you love about being a bridal stylist?
Being bridal stylists is our calling in life. Each wedding is a work of art that we put our heart and soul into. It combines everything we're passionate about: beauty, creativity, working with people, the visual arts, and love! Being able to make the brides vision come to life is incredibly rewarding.
What really sets us apart is that when you hire us, you're hiring a team. We're here 24/7 to make sure your wedding day runs flawlessly. After booking us we write up a full schedule for the wedding morning to ensure everyone is ready on time. And we always have extra team members ready in case there are any last minute aditions.
What happens if my bridal stylist can't make it to the wedding?
Let me start by saying that we have NEVER had a stylist cancel on a wedding! But we do our best to prepare for the worst situation, in the event that (god forbid) something would happen to the makeup artist or hairstylist, we make sure every stylist takes photos of the completed look at the trial along with detailed notes on how it was achieved. This way if we have to send a replacement she'll be fully prepared on how to get the same look (something that would leave you panicking if you'd hired an individual stylist). Needless to say, if this happened, your service would be on us.
This all sounds wonderful, but it also sounds expensive. Can we afford this?
Absolutely. We price all of our services individually so you can pick and choose which works best with your budget and to determine how much help you need throughout the day.
Who do you work best with?
We work best with brides who are looking for a partnership. We're not the kind of stylists who take over a situation and tell you what you should like. We enjoy working with brides who know what kind of styles they are looking for and working with them to make thier dream become a reality!
Will I lose control of my styling if you're doing it for me?
No chance! This is your wedding and we're here to bring YOUR ideas to life.
Will you travel to my wedding?
Yes! Our work is completely mobile, and we do all of the styling in the comfort of your home or hotel room. For your convience we have makeup artists and hairstylists located in Victoria, Vancouver, and surrounding areas. We're also more then happy to travel to your wedding outside of these locations.
Will you work with the vendors I've already found?
Of course! We are always excited to meet new vendors and expand our circle of professional friendships.
I'm still looking for a certain vendor, do you have any reccomendations?
Yes - being in the wedding industy we meet and have the chance to work with different vendors all the time, and we have a vendor list filled with all of our favourites. These are vendors who we've personally worked with and love, they did not pay anything to be on the list, nor would we let anyone pay us for a spot.
We also have some partnerships with non-wedding services as well. We do not spam so we will never send you the lists uninvited, but if you want them just ask! One example is Mad Maids House Cleaning, they give our brides a 10% discount - how great is that!
May we contact some of your former clients to see what it is like to work with you?
Absolutely! You can also look at our testimonial page and see what are our brides have said about our services.
Will my makeup look good in my pictures?
Yes! We know how to get your look "just right" for the camera. Makeup for photography is slightly different and requires different products than everyday makeup. So don't stress, we'll have you looking beautiful in all your wedding photos!
Do you take more then one wedding per day?
We have multiple stylists to accomodate more then one booking per day BUT we never book a makeup artist or hairstylist with more then one. They only do one wedding per day, always. We are completely committed to you for your special day.
Do you take credit cards?
We do take credit cards via PayPal. It's easy, secure, and all done online from your home or office!
This sounds like everything we've been looking for, what happens next?
The next step is for you to email us or have your wedding planner email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to hear all about your needs and see if we are a good match!
