I am just realizing that I don’t have anyone for updo/styles! I just don’t get them done anymore. My current hair guy is fantastic, but he is for color and cut – he’s not really into the up-do’s. And he owns his shop, he doesn’t work with anyone else.
Who do you use for fancy styles? Where have you gone? Who are you going to for the big day?
I could really use some recommendations. I do have a formal event to go to in the near future, so it would be a great time to have a trial with someone new!

I have an awesome girl- she did my sister’s hair, my hair for my sister’s wedding, my best friend’s hair for her wedding, and I know hands down that she’s doing my hair for my wedding. PM me 🙂

I’d love some names too. I have no idea who is doing hair and make-up – but I would love someone who will come to me.

Bump, seems we are all in the same boat!
@MissTaken: Thanks for the info!

I feel like the rates tend to be $150++! And I am no fuss with hair and make up on a typical basis, so I don’t even want to go all out on the wedding day. Is it even possible to find somebody under $100??

Bump. If anyone has a salon recommendation, I’d love to hear it. I have been salon hopping, and haven’t found anyone I really like for cuts, so I’m really at a loss where to get hair/makeup done on my wedding day. Need to schedule something soon…

- Wedding: May 2012 - Salvage One, Chicago
I’m using Sonia Roselli in the city. They’ll come to you, but each service needs to be for the bride + three other people. It’s not cheap, either- depending on the level of artist you want its $175-275 for the bride, and then $70-85 for each additional person. Beauty on Call is another place I checked out. Otherwise, I would go to MAC counters and see if anyone freelances.

Hey I’m thinking of usiing Sonia too. Did you do a trial run yet and if so can you post or send me some photos? There areVery pricey especially for me because I’m getting married in the burbs and she requires bride + 5, and I’m picking up the bill. Let me know, really appreciate it.

oh I am just using a friend who works at a salon. She only charges $30 pp and $20 for my hair trial. This was the final result! 🙂

@Mrs.Firefly1: I have an awesome guy I go to all the time. He has never done any up-do’s for me, but he did do my friends hair for her wedding and it came out awesome. There is also a girl on his staff that is great with make-up…it is a small salon in Cicero…I don’t know if that would work for you, but if you want name/number, message me.
