Weddings by Ali, Long Island Makeup and Hair
I believe that the you should have everything you heart desires on the biggest day of your life, and that includes looking and feeling your most beautiful. I work one-on-one with you to come up with the perfect look for your Wedding Hair and Makeup. You will feel and look beautiful, confident, radiant and fresh. Whether it's a natural, glowing look, with a soft-updo, a dramatic & intense style, or a combination of both, I will create a look that will make you look like your most beautiful self.
I perform all services, on-location, so I come to you for both the trial and the day of the wedding.
I use High Definition Airbrush Makeup that is AMAZING! It is modern, flawless, natural looking, yet durable and will last all day (& night!) It is HIGH DEFINITION, which is what is used in photo shoots and on TV & Movies. I carry a full array of false eyelashes to suit a variety of tastes. I also use other prestige lines like RCMA, Stila, Smashbox, Inglot, Dior, Ben Nye, Viseart, Graftobian, Nars, Lorac and other professional lines providing you with the best of the best, for long wearing, camera-ready, simply breathtaking results.
I can recreate any hairstyle you may see online, tv or in magazines, or come up with something specifically unique for you. This includes placement of a veil, flower, pins or whatever you may consider for your big day. My suggestions, techniques and products I use will make your hairstyle stay throughout the day, and hold up to the weather, elements and dancing.
I have been doing bridal hair & makeup for over 20 years, and know what works. In addition to my years of experience, education, advanced training and talent, my clients always praise me on my professionalism, organization and that create a stress-free, relaxing experience at both your trial & wedding day.
For larger parties, or those with time limitations, I have a great team of hand selected professional stylists and artists to that I personally have vetted. There is great value in having a team that all works together to do that many services on a hectic wedding morning. My team & I have many years of experience doing large wedding parties. Many times I see people come from all different places, and the look is not cohesive, on multiple girls run late. This will not happen with the Team at Long Island Makeup and Hair.
Though it is not required, and I highly recommend booking a Trial Consultation. A trial is so much fun! Together, we'll come up with the perfect look for you for your big day! A trial usually takes about 2-3 hours, and I schedule trials Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 11am-6pm, since weekends are reserved for events & weddings. Payment for trial is due at the time the trial is serviced. A retainer of is required to book a trial. The balance due at the time of the trial in cash.
A retainer is also required to secure a wedding date and will be applied towards the total due on or before the big day. The retainer is non-refundable and non-transferable to another date. A retainer to secure a wedding date must be placed 3 months prior to the wedding, prior to scheduling a trial if closer than 3 months. Just before the 2 month mark you will receive a checklist of all the details I need from you in order to create your schedule and total balance due.
Final balance for services will be due at start of makeovers on the wedding day or before.
