  • May be. Depends if she has an appointment at salon.
6. What is the difference between a junior, senior & senior most artist? & how should I decide on one?
  • The artist have been given their designations according to their expertise & experience.
  • However every artist at Chandni Singh Salon & academy has undergone extensive training with Chandni to understand each face type, skin type, skin color , eyes & how to deal with problems keeping the clients taste in make up. The services are extremely personalized & we do make up according to the brief given to us by each client. If you want it simple & natural, we keep it so & in case you like brighter make up with strong colors, the artist shall do so.
  • If you have a small function you can easily book a junior artist. However if you have a larger function with a huge gathering & if you are extremely picky about your make up style you should book the senior or senior most artist.
7. What hair style will the hair stylist do?
  • We usually ask our client to tell us her preferences like if she prefers open hair or tied hair styles. If you have a photo reference on our phone, it makes it even easier for us to understand your taste. If that certain hair style is not possible for you or will not work for your hair length or your cut or your face, the hair stylist will tell you the same. He will be happy to suggest alternate styles in that case.
8. Do you provide hair accessories?
  • Yes we do have them and we charge you anything between Rs 200 to Rs 1000,depending on what you choose.
9. Do you provide fresh flowers for hair accessories?

In case you want fresh flowers we usually get them from a florist who is right across the salon. But sometimes he does not have certain specific colors. Please feel free to carry flowers to match your outfit. We do not have gajra available in our area. If you wish to wear the same,please carry it with you.
Quantity required :

  • 3 to 4 stems if you want them on one side of your hair.
  • 10 to 12 stems if you want them all around your bun
  • 1 meter of gajra if you want it all around your bum
  • 4 meters in case you want it all around your plait
10. Will the make be long lasting & water proof ?
  • Yes our make up will be long lasting and water proof. It wont budge as we use a primer and make up fixer to fix it in place. Regular make up lasts about 10 to 12 hours.Air brush make up lasts 15 to 18 hours . Your kohl, mascara, eye liner wont come off even if you cry.
11. Should I opt for Air brush or regular Make up & what is the difference between them?
  • Air brush makeup is HIGH DEFINITION make up & the foundation is infused with silicon & minerals resulting in a beautiful radiance on ones skin. In the regular foundation we create the same radiance with products .
  • I recommend air brush specifically to women getting married in peak summer & humid conditions as it is extremely long lasting.
  • I also recommend it to women who have extremely oily skin ( complete oily face ) as oily skin tends to eat away lot of make up.
  • It also works well with women who have dry/lifeless skin as the high definition foundation infuses life into the skin and gives it great radiance.
