HOW CAMBRIDGE WEDDING HAIR FREELANCE WORKS
CWH has booking agents who manage CWH wedding hair jobs in postcode area’s across Cambridgeshire and the surrounding areas.
Job opportunities will come to you from these agents as the leads come in. The agent will try to use the artists that are local to the jobs.
The agent will pay you 70% of jobs. As a rough guide on a £300.00 job, you will be paid £210.00.
Our prices are set across the board and will not differ from artist to artist. (Types of jobs and prices are available on our website)
Wedding hair trials should be completed within 2 hours. At our discretion we can charge a bride a £30.00 an hour fee if the trial goes over 2 hours.
If the customer is happy with your work, you will be paid £50.00 to book you for the job. This amount is deducted from the final invoice and the job will become yours to organise and arrange.
All final payments are paid to you, then our 30% percentage (less travel) is to be paid to us by you by bank transfer upon receipt of payments.
If more people are added to the wedding day you MUST declare this immediately to the agent.
ACCEPTANCE OF JOBS
The agent will send you details of the job via a booking form to your email, you must then print this and take it with you on the job.
If you are asked to assist on a job the fee is fixed at £70.00 for 2 hours, or £90.00 for 3 hours, you will be required to invoice the agent upon completion of the job.
We will pay you 0.45p per mile once the distance is over 15 miles from your home address, this is on both trials and wedding jobs.
