THE CLIENT (BRIDE)
EYE DO MAKEUP & HAIR LLC/ DOING BUSINESS AS REFEYEANCE MAKEUP & HAIR
REFEYEANCE MAKEUP & HAIR is a talent agency that represents professional freelance artists. The freelance artist involved in this agreement has a valid contract that allows REFeyeANCE Makeup & Hair LLC to represent them and contract with the Customer on their behalf. All parties in this agreement are individual, independent contractors representing the beauty industry’s top performers.
Customer initially contacted REFEYEANCE MAKEUP & HAIR seeking the professional skill sets of Artist(s) in the fields of makeup & hair application(s), and other miscellaneous skill sets in the beauty industry for a specific event in relation to high definition photography and film. REFEYEANCE MAKEUP & HAIR reserved the desired date and time of this specific event, upon a $75 retainer fee paid by the customer and/or a scheduled trial run consultation between the Customer and Artist(s). Artist(s) will/have displayed their professional skill sets to determine style and application method through a trial run, per the requirements of the Customer in preparation for the specific event. This reservation fee secures your artist/s, gives you 24 hour access to one of our customer service managers and ensures creation of a detailed wedding day schedule which is sent to you 4 weeks prior to your event. This deposit is not deducted from your wedding day total and is refundable should you need to cancel for any reason as long as we are notified 3 months prior to the wedding date.
The deposit is non refundable if you cancel within 90 days from the event. If you cancel within 3 months of the event, a 30% cancellation fee will be billed to you based on the makeup & hair count you provided. You can add to your count within the 90 days from your wedding but any reductions in count, would result in a fee when an artist is removed from the reservation due to the decrease.
Any trial run fee’s that the customer incurred from the trial consultation have already been paid, and
were made payable directly to the Artist(s) the day of the initial consultation.
