List Of Best Wedding Hair and Makeup Salons Melbourne
According to The Knot, US brides pay an average of $100 dollars for wedding makeup services and $110 dollars for wedding hair. Zola put this combined figure at approximately $300 dollars depending on the desired makeup application look and hairstyle the bride chooses.
If you have yourself plus four bridesmaids all getting hair and makeup done, allot at least four hours of getting-ready time. That may seem like a lot, but it's just enough. If your bridal party is a bit bigger, ask your stylist to bring an assistant to cut down on time. Do the same for makeup.
We'd say there's a fairly solid consensus that the couple should pay for anything beauty-related for bridesmaids, like hair, makeup, tans or nails. Basically, anything that affects the way the girls look that the bride has specifically requested.
You can negotiate to have the trial cost discounted or included in the day-of rate if you end up going with the artist.
Bridal packages will mostly include hair, makeup and draping, which means they will help you do your bridal makeup, your bridal hairstyle and help you drape your saree or wedding trousseau. ... Also, if you want to go for a pre-bridal package (which mostly include body scrubs, wraps, exfoliates, waxing, massage etc.)

A Standard Makeup Application is the perfect choice for your special occasion, event or night out!
We will customise the look to suit your style, whether it be natural or glam.
Your skin will be prepared with base products and skincare that work with your skin type to achieve ultimate longevity.

Airbrush Makeup Application
Airbrush Makeup is ideal for those occasions where you need your makeup to look as flawless as possible, for as long as possible! It is water resistant, smudge-proof and wears for 15+ hours.
An airbrush makeup application includes everything a standard makeup application does with the addition of airbrushing.
'Airbrushing' is an advanced way to apply foundation and other makeup. The liquid product is sprayed onto the face via an airbrush gun and compressor. The feeling of the application is similar to a spray tan.
Any level of coverage can be achieved, from light to full, whilst still maintaining a skin-like finish. Since airbrushing requires a lot less product than a standard makeup application it feels almost weightless on the skin.

Leanza Tang Wedding Hair and Makeup Salon Melbourne
It all started when I was 4 years old giving my mum braids and ponytails before she would go to sleep. Crazy to say but that was when I knew I had an interest in hair styling. As I was progressing through my academic years at school, fashion design and art sparked my occupational interest. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts (Textile Design) at RMIT in Melbourne, Australia, I figured I wanted to take my hair career seriously.
At that same time YouTube began to be the main search engine for everything and I found myself watching endless make up videos. My greatest influence was this smokey eye, make up tutorial that Jenn Im created and ever since then I started to slowly build my make up collection.
Having accomplished two Certificates in Hairdressing and Makeup, I've learnt so much along the way working in various salons and in luxury retail at Bvlgari and Chanel. I've learnt how to engage with my clients, understand their needs, make them feel welcomed and comfortable and most importantly to have an enjoyable experience.
