About Face Design Team is a professional Orlando production makeup crew. We know all the do’s and don’ts a production company needs when it comes to their styling team.
With over 30 years of experience as an Orlando production makeup team and hair stylists, we have been part of many great projects. It’s an exciting but unpredictable industry and there are numerous critical dos and don’ts every stylist should know when working on an active production. Below are a few rules we always follow on every job.
We DO show up early because we DON’T want to be late
It’s vital that we know exactly where we’re going the day of the shoot. Even if that means leaving extra early or doing a dry run before the job starts, we’ll be there on time and ready to work.
On the flip side, we know production costs are very high and every second counts. A late arrival means a delay in the talent being camera ready and that can cost thousands of dollars to a production—a problem we don’t want to happen!
We DON’T Assume but DO Communicate
We know that clear communication is essential and saves time. That’s why we’ll make sure to ask questions to clarify exactly what the client wants. With clear communication and no assumptions, there will be no need for redos.
We DO Act Professional and DON’T Ever Make the Talent Feel Uncomfortable
Our team understands that keeping a positive, professional attitude and making the talent feel welcomed and comfortable is extremely important
We also understand how important prep time is for talent and they often utilize their styling time to study scripts and rehearse lines. In this case, staying quiet and laser focused is essential to keep things on schedule while making the talent look their best for when it’s time for them to walk on set.
Oh-we also never ask for pictures or autographs with celebrity talent unless it’s offered and it’s been approved.
We DO Come Prepared We Don’t act Unprofessional
Before the production day(s), we will prepare our kits based on the needs of the talent and requirements of the shoot. Kits will be clean and well-stocked- never forgetting those few extra items for the “just in case moments”.
Furthermore, we know that every production is on a tight time schedule and our team is trained to be prepared for the unexpected. We will always stay pleasant and professional, no matter how challenging the situation may present itself.
