Bridal Policies

  • Katie Astoria , owner of ,Modern Muse Beauty, is based out of  Lighten Up Salon and Spa in Austin. Additionally, Katie has a team of experienced hairstylists and makeup artists available for larger parties. We are available for both in-salon and on location services within the Greater Austin area. If your wedding or event is outside the Greater Austin Area, travel fees may apply. Please inquire about pricing for travel.
  • An additional $100 will be added to final total on Sundays, Mondays, and holidays. Holiday weekends will be quoted on a case-by-case basis.
  • Katie and her team are happy to service your entire bridal party with hair and/or makeup as needed! Depending upon the number of people in the wedding party that need services, additional makeup and hair artists may be necessary in order to keep the day running efficiently and smoothly. For on-location services, there is a $50 fee per additional artist needed. Once you determine the final number of ladies needing hair and/or makeup services, we can provide a custom quote that will let you know how many additional artists may be necessary. The $50 fee covers setup and take down for the additional artist as well as arranging for the additional artists.
  •  We will leave as soon as the last person is ready. If you would like someone to stay to do touch ups or to take out the veil etc. we will do so at a rate of $35/hour. Please let us know so we can plan accordingly.
  •  We require a $100 deposit for the bride and a $25 deposit per each additional attendant to book your date. All deposits must be made via one payment to Katie Astoria/Modern Muse. If all of your attendants are paying for their own services you must gather their payment and present the entire deposit together. All deposits will be applied to the grand total on the wedding day. 6 weeks prior to the wedding day we will send a finalized contract with all final details and services for the wedding. At this point any cancellations will result in a loss of deposit.
  • Final payments for the total balance must be paid at least 48 hours in advance of the event to Katie Astoria/Modern Muse Beauty. Payments may be made in cash, check, or by credit card.
