10 Questions with Laci Coker

1. Introduction: What's your story?

My name is Laci Coker. I’m a small town girl with big city hair. I was born and raised in Paris (Texas, that is) and moved to Dallas after high school. After 5 years of sales and marketing in corporate America, and later becoming a full time nanny, I knew something was missing. My love for hair and makeup is no secret. Those who know me know that I never leave my house without big teased hair and HOT pink lipstick. So, I combined my love for all things hair and makeup with my passion for people and started Tease to Please Hair and Makeup in 2016. I haven’t looked back.

2. What's your experience as a bridal hair & makeup artist? How many brides are in there in your portfolio?

Our talented and hard working team of 40 artists are dedicated to providing a stress free, joyful environment while introducing you to the best version of yourself through hair and makeup. We are known for our punctuality, attention to detail, and of course, our hair and makeup talent while serving over 300 brides a year. Each one of our team members is well trained and experienced in what they do. Along with individual training, we all participate in group education classes consistently throughout the year to share tips, tricks, and the latest hair and makeup styles.

3. What are the different packages that you offer and which one is your most popular package?

Each quote is custom to every bride! Whether your bridal party is small or big, we have something for everyone. Every bride can choose which services to add to your contract such as engagements, trials, bridals, boudoir, and of course wedding day! We even offer speciality services such as hair extension rental and tattoo cover. Whatever you need hair and makeup for, we’ve got you covered!

4. Do you have a team of assistants or will you be the only artist that day? What will happen if you're sick or have an emergency on the wedding day?

The number of artists on your wedding day depends on how many services are booked and the timeline you have to get ready in. We have weddings that range from having 1 artist to 4 or 5 artists! With a team of 40 artists, we’ve always got you covered no matter what.

5. Do you charge a travel fee? For what distance? What does that cover?

We have a $60 travel fee per artist that covers any get ready location across DFW, East TX, and Oklahoma. Having a wedding out of state? No worries! Reach out for a custom quote.

6. Can the bride book a wedding makeup trial appointment and will you also do a trial before the wedding?

Yes, you can. During the trial session, we will go over everything to get an idea of what you want for hair and makeup services. After the initial consult, we will make any suggestions if needed and then start on your hair and makeup. This is a trial run so don’t be afraid to be honest; if you want any adjustments made after we are finished please let us know! We will make the necessary changes until you are completely 100% in love! We will take some photos so that we can make sure to duplicate the same look on the day of the event. This session is usually about 2 hours.

7. What beauty products do you use and would you be open to the bride using her own make-up?

Tease to Please uses professional, camera-ready hair and makeup products. Because they are top grade, you might not always recognize the brand names since many are not available to the general public. We only use products that we know will give you a flawless look and that will last the longest. If you have sensitive skin or any skin issue, we also have products that are safe and hypoallergenic. Just let us know any of your cares or concerns at the trial run and we are happy to accommodate your needs as best we can.

8. How can you make the bride's wedding makeup last and look good in photos?

The Tease to Please team is trained in makeup applications that are long wearing and photo ready! By using professional products, we ensure your makeup will look just as good at the end of the night as it did when we first did it.

9. How long will makeup take on the day and how long will you be staying for on the day?

Makeup typically takes 45 minutes per person! We arrive early to set up and allow for time after everyone has received services to touch up so everyone looks fresh before photos.

10. What is your cancellation and/or refund policy?

There are no refunds given due to a cancellation after the contract and retainer are in place. We require payment in advance for all other hair and makeup appointments outside of a wedding contract.
