We currently have onsite beauty dates available in 2021 but bridal dates are filling quickly
Since 2006, real brides have reviewed and rated us higher and more often than any other on-location hair and makeup service provider. We represent only the most talented professional Artists. CBA Artists are successful for their customer relations as much as their artistic talent. Our investment in technology provides our clients full access to their event details via a personalized account page. This sophisticated process of managing your event allows for unrivaled accuracy and efficiency resulting in an organized and stress free Event.
Yes, we have a Bride plus 4 services or a $500 "day of" minimum requirement for booking onsite artists.
For example; Makeup is 1 service. Lashes and Airbrush are add-ons and do not qualify toward service count. Hairstyle is 1 service. Extension placement is an add-on and does not qualify toward service count.
All Payments are accepted 6 weeks prior to, and due, no later than 14 days prior to the service date.
For your convenience, billing notifications will begin 6 weeks prior to the service date. This will trigger our cancellation policy. see "WHEN CAN I MAKE CHANGES TO MY EVENT?"
We accept major credit cards, as well as bank transfers. Sorry but no checks.
Yes. The Deposit is applied as a credit on the Final Invoice.
Yes. 20% gratuity will be applied to all services and detailed on the Final Invoice as a tax (Gratuity is not applied to Travel, Additional Artist, or Early Start, fees). Any additional gratuity is not expected but certainly welcome.
Start time depends on the requested "ready time" and the type and number of services requested. We are committed to keeping the service times under 4-5 hours max. This includes some built-in buffer time for any unforeseen delays.
Yes. When you choose a Bridal Package the price includes a trial. All other services are priced individually. This allows you to select and pay for only the services you actually want. This is something to keep in mind when comparing CBA to other service providers.
Typically the Artist will contact you 8 weeks prior to coordinate, however, you may contact CBA to schedule sooner if you'd like. Trials are performed at a location of your choice on Mondays through Thursdays to accommodate Artist's weekend wedding schedule. An additional fee may be required if a weekend is requested or the location is more than 20 miles from the city's center (see "How does the Travel Fee work?")
We stand behind our services 100%. So if we ever fail to meet a Bride’s expectation we will do everything we can to rectify the situation, and if needed, provide refunds and accept cancellations without charge.
Anytime. Providing Artist availability, you may continue to edit services before and after the Security Deposit is made, up to 6 weeks prior to the Event. Within 6 weeks, you may no longer cancel any services without charge. Our Artist's schedules are determined well in advance; therefore, we encourage change requests to be made as early as possible, as they are contingent on Artist availability.
Simply email us and we will review requested changes and respond as time permits.
Travel Fees are assessed to any location more than 25 miles from the center of the major metropolitan area. The center is an estimate and varies from region to region. Travel Fees start at $25 and increase $1 with each additional 1 mile. (Example: 35 miles = $35 Travel Fee per Artist) Travel Fees are a charge intended to individually compensate each Artist for their time as well as a travel expense. Once Artists are assigned, the Travel Fee may be adjusted based on the actual number of Artists required. Extended distances or early Ready Times may require overnight accommodations as well.
