As always, feel free to reach out with any additional questions. We are looking forward to spending part of your special day with you!

○  Don’t forget your button up shirt or your robe! You definitely don’t want to pull a shirt over your perfect hairdo!

○  Be sure to have a final headcount so your artist(s) can plan the timing accordingly. We’ll make sure to set this up for you, the day does go by quickly and we want to be sure you are on schedule.

○  Hair should be clean and dry and ready for the hairstylists, even if you are wearing your hair down or with curls it should be clean and dry. If the hair is short it can be damp if all it requires is a blow dry.

○  Your face should also be clean and moisturized. Please let your artist know of any allergies.

○  Pictures of what you are looking for are great. Understand your artist is there to make professional recommendations and wants to ensure you look your best.

○  Relax and let us take care of making you look and feel your best on your special day. Don’t worry, everyone will have a little touch up before you head out the door!

Brides to be – How to Prepare for your Hair & Make-Up Trial. Your questions answered!

Preparing for your wedding hair and makeup trial raises a lot of questions. We thought we’d answer the most frequently asked questions and give you a few suggestions as well!
General Trial Tips from -StyleMeBar-:
We always suggest you wear white or off-white (or the color of your dress if you’re wearing a colored dress!). This way you’ll get a better idea of your skin tone and colors used on the big day. We suggest you have any jewelry, veils or head pieces with you for your trial so we can get your look as precise as possible. Lastly, it always helps if we have a few pictures of your dress! Let us know what your dress looks like (with or without you in it) so we can get a feel for your overall wedding style, neckline, etc. and suggest what will work best for you on your big day.
Preparing for your -StyleMeBar- Hair Trial:
We ask for dry, styled hair. It doesn’t matter if it was recently washed, but we want to see your hair as it is styled on a daily basis. Tell us a little bit about the texture of your hair and what you have in mind for your wedding ‘do. Pictures are a great way to show us what you like. Be sure to consider the weather and setting of your wedding: if you’re having an outdoor summer wedding, you may want to consider an updo to stay cool. If you have fine or short hair, we can always explore the option of adding clip-in extensions too.
Preparing for your -StyleMeBar- Makeup Trial:
Be sure to have a clean, recently washed face with your daily moisturizer on. Let us know what type of look you’re going for and have photos of makeup styles you love. Keep in mind, not everyone has the same eye or face shape, so certain looks will look better on some than others; allow us to help you create the best look for you – the trial is designed to make this YOUR personal wedding look. We also want to see a picture or two of your daily makeup style – this helps us find the right look for you. Be sure to tell your artist if you have any skin allergies.
Remember this is a trial run. We are here to help you find the perfect look for your wedding day, to make you feel like a princess on the big day. Changes like lip color or a little more volume in your hair are easy things to change the day of your wedding. We love trial runs because it’s a great way for brides to get to know their day-of stylists. It ensures comfort and confidence between the bride and stylist so the wedding day is cool, calm and perfect. -StyleMeBar- is here to pamper you!

 

StyleMeBar Booking Process – How it Works!

A Letter to our Clients

All our artists are fully vetted and work for us only if they meet the highest standards. They are licensed professionals and we hire only the best. Our mobile application is available for download for both iOS and Android devices.

If you are looking to book an appointment with us, this is how it works:

We book appointments at the top of every hour starting at 5am and last appointment at 7pm. If you were to book with us for 2 appointments to be done at the same location by the same artist, that artist would be available every other hour. So, for example, you could book an artist at 4pm, the again at 6pm and get that same artist. We allow 2-hour windows between bookings so that our artists can have an adequate amount of time to complete the service and travel to their next appointment. In this case, the artist that you booked would arrive at 3:45pm to set up and be ready to do both appointments consecutively at that location.   If your appointment is set to start at 4pm, our artist would be done with you both between 6pm and 6:30pm latest.  For color and treatments, we allow a 3-hour window to complete the appointment.

Our technology allows for you to book appointments with a specific stylist up to 60 days in advance.  Our artists can schedule their availability forward up to two months. Our technology automatically selects an artist based on your needs and location.  You have the option to select a preferred artist when booking your appointment.
Finally, not all our artists do both hair and makeup, rather some only do one service or the other. If you try booking a blowout and makeup combo for example, and you don’t get an available artist, you can book a blowout first, then a makeup separately. This would send you 2 individual artists to your location. As an example, you can book them both at 4pm or you could choose to book makeup at 4pm and then hair at 5pm, however if you need two separate artists to provide different services (i.e. one for hair and one for makeup) you can have them both come to the same location to start at the same time as well. The artists that you select would be in touch with you prior to your appointment. They can share their Instagram or images of their work directly with you in order to give you a better idea of their particular style. Our cancellation policy is 24 hours prior to the appointment start time for a full refund.
Please remember to verify your e-mail address during the registration process in order to properly create your account. Our office hours are 9pm to 6pm, 7 days a week. We can be reached at 703-853-7072 or via e-mail at contactus@stylemebar.co.

2018 Pick “The Knot Best of Weddings”

 

   posted 11/13/2017 (updated 11/13/2017)

StyleMeBar I can confidently say is now part of my family. Tracey and Amanda did hair and make-up for my sister’s wedding 2 years ago, so when I got engaged I knew exactly who I wanted with me the day of my wedding. They are amazing inside and out, and brought so much fun to the room that all my “day of nerves” went right out the window.

My bridal suite was on site, so having Tracey and Amanda travel to my room for convenience made the day go so smoothly. They did my hair and make up, two mothers, and 7 bridesmaids. No one was rushed, and everyone was beyond thrilled with how they looked. One of my bridesmaids has already booked them for her wedding, and I will forever recommend them to future friends and family. I am forever grateful with StyleMeBar, and will be a forever client!

Happy Holiday’s from -StyleMeBar-!

Minor changes to stylist availability: make a booking from bright and early at 5AM – for business meetings, bridal showers, and brunches – on into the evening as late as 7PM as you prepare for a night out on the town. Also, our redesigned demand pricing feature helps to price our services to meet the most requests throughout the course of the day.

 

 

 

 

 

 


…And there’s much more!

We’ve tuned up the engine under the hood. You might not see all of our changes directly, but be assured we’ve made a number of performance enhancements on both our mobile and web platforms to ensure speedier loading times for a seamless booking process.
