We are a Maui based style team but are able to service all Hawaiian islands (Lanai, Oahu, Kauai, Big Island) and even have sister stylists on all islands to assist. We are happy to put together a proposal for you that includes travel fees and logistics. 

Where are you based?

We’re a mobile styling team, which means we come to you! Our standard travel fee includes the time it takes to get to and from your location, the cost of gas, and the convenience of getting ready in your hotel/condo. Our stylists live all over the island, and it can take between 30-90 mins to reach your location. Please inquire for exact rates.

Why do you charge a travel fee?

Our Portrait service is exclusively for non-bridal events, such as head shots, prom, and engagement, family or maternity photo shoots, etc. 

Can I book your Portrait Hair & Makeup if I’m a simple bride doing an elopement or celebrating my vow renewal?

Couture hairstyles include the glam wave, intricate updos and detailed braids. They are more glamorous and usually require extra time to prep and style the hair. They also often need extensions or a bun filler to recreate the intricacy of the look and add volume.
Standard hairstyles are a little more simple in terms of what is needed to style it and the over all look. They include beachy waves/curls, half-up/half-down, and simple updos and braids. 

What is a Couture vs Standard hairstyle?

MeiLi offers her services through her specially curated package that includes a master hairstylist to work with her to create your dream bridal styling. She also incorporates aromatherapy, breathwork, and mini-spa facial with Pure Mana skin care to give skin and soul an inner glow. 

How do I have MeiLi as my makeup artist?

Our Ultimate Bridal Experience includes all the bells and whistles to get you ready for your special day. You get to choose any hairstyle of your choice from both Couture and Standard styles, and a full-face makeup application. It also includes upgrades to really pamper you up like a salon-quality blowout, complimentary extension placement (just bring your own extensions!), an in-depth skin prep for flawless makeup and longevity, collagen gel eye pads to help de-puff and moisturize your under eyes, and a mini touch-up kit that includes translucent powder, lipstick/gloss and some bobby pins if you have a veil. 

Our Complete Bridal Experience is a stripped down service that includes a Standard hairstyle of your choice and a full-face makeup application. A mini-touch up kit is not included, but we recommend adding it on a la carte so you can touch up your makeup before photos and throughout your wedding. Other a la carte add-ons are available for an additional cost, such as a blowout or upgrading to a Couture hairstyle, extension placement, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Looking for something in particular?

Yes, we offer clip-in or halo extensions for rent in a select range of shades. Our clip-ins are 20” in length and halos are 18” or 20”, and the cost to rent them is $165. If you’re interested in renting one, we would just need to see a photo of your hair down (front and back) taken outdoors during the day time in a shaded area. This would allow us to see what your true hair color is in order for us to see if we have the perfect match for you. No filters or bathroom photos, please! In the event we don’t have one that matches your hair color, we may be able to special order you one for an additional cost and would just need 4-6 weeks to order it.

Do you offer extension rentals?

We don’t have a salon, but do have a studio space our owner MeiLi designed in her home where we can do hair and makeup for your trial, elopement or other special events like photo shoots. Our standard travel fee would also be waived since you’d be coming to us. 

Do you have a salon?

We recommend showering either the night before or morning of your appointment. Please use a clarifying shampoo, getting a good lather on your roots to remove any oils from your scalp, then follow with a conditioner at the ends of your hair only.
If you have a scheduled blowout with us, please have clean/damp hair. 
If you didn’t book a blowout service, please have clean/dry hair for us. The big myth is that oily hair styles better, but here on Maui, even day-old hair can be too oily for us to style, so we’d need clean hair in order for us to achieve the best results.

How should I prep my hair for you?

Yes, we offer men’s face touch-ups, hairstyling, and beard/neck refine for grooms and other family members. We do not offer barbershop-like services, such as trims, haircuts or close shaves, but can refer you to a mobile barber on island who we work with.

Do you provide any styling services for men?

Great question- we actually have a great rotation system that works best for our stylists to efficiently complete services on time and sometimes even earlier, so we don’t provide a schedule because of this. All we ask is that your bridal party be in your room at the beginning of your appointment, relax and enjoy the process, and we’ll rotate through them. As the bride, you’ll get your hair styled 2nd or 3rd to last, and you’ll go very last for makeup. If you have flower girls or Jr bridesmaids, we normally ask that they go very last, but if you need particular people in and out first, we’re happy to take care of them in the beginning. Lastly, we’ll do all final touch ups at the very end.

Can you provide me a schedule for my bridal party the day of the wedding? 

No, but we do offer our Attendee services at a discounted rate for your bridal party/family when a comparable bridal service is booked. If you’re not in need of services for yourself, we’re still happy to take care of them and would just need one person from your party to book a bridal service, then the rest can book a comparable discounted Attendee service. (Minimum 3 or more)

Do you book just bridal parties without a bridal service?

Yes, for hair lengths 20” and longer, we charge an additional $100. This applies to brides, those in your bridal party, and for non-bridal portrait services. 

I have long hair, do you charge extra for that?

At this time, we are not, but we can refer you to our trusted spray tan associates we highly recommend! 

Do you offer spray tan services?

We wouldn’t say that it is necessary as we are known for our stunning bridal styles without having a trial before hand; however we will say that we have never had a bride who regretted doing a trial before her wedding day. If there are ANY concerns about a particular style (the longevity, comfort level, how it looks on you), we highly recommend a trial. This way we can spend the time figuring out your perfect unique style (which might end up not being the initial style you had in mind) without stressing about it on your actual wedding day. That said, we do not think that a trial is necessary for every bride, just depends on your particular needs. There is nothing like having a completely stress-free wedding day and having a trial and can sometimes alleviate some of those unknown factors which contribute to stress.

How important is it to schedule a trial?
