How do I prepare for my appointment?

For a blowout we request you have wet hair.
This means you should wash your hair 10-15 minutes prior to the appointment so your hair is damp but not soaking wet.
For up-dos, please have clean dry hair before your appointment. Unless, you have added on a blow-dry to your service. A $15 surcharge will apply if hair is still damp/wet, and also if hair is extremely long or very thick. An indication of surcharge where applicable can be given upon request.

Dry Hairstyling:
For us to nail that hair style you’re after and still keep to your schedule, we’d love for you to have your hair washed and dried before we arrive. Additional costs of $15 AUD will be added to the booking if your stylist is required to dry off your hair.

As much as we do our utmost to cater to all requests, we generally do not carry hair extensions in our kit when we visit you. Your stylist can provide hair extensions at a cost of $30 if arranged prior to your appointment.

Makeup services:
For makeup, please have a makeup-free, cleansed face prior to our artists’ arrival.
Leave moisturiser off.

Our Artists will have products and tools with them, but please let make sure you have filled out the allergy consent form prior to your booking located here

The Makeup Artists Hustle loves your pets but some of our Artists are allergic or scared.
If you could please let us know before we come, it would be optimum for the safety of our Artists. We ask that you have a place to sit near an electrical outlet and a flat surface so we can plug in our hairdryers and lay out our tools/products. It is very important that you are ready for your appointment on time.

What styles do you offer?
Refer to our services menu on the website to browse through all styles. You can also request your own personal style.

What if I'm running late for my appointment?
If you believe you will be late for an appointment, it is imperative that you inform the Artists ahead of time of any delays that may occur.

This can be paid directly to your Artist at the time of the service.

In the event that you are significantly late and the Artists does not have sufficient time to complete the service/s before the next scheduled appointment, you will be liable for the full cost of the service/s.
