My makeup was like $80 or $90 and my hair was $120 day of, $80 trial. These are as best as I can remember so I might be $5 or $10 off. My MoH’s makeup was maybe like $60 or $70 and her hair was probably $80. We did this at a salon. It would’ve been 2.5 times as much to get people to come to us.

I have a mobile salon coming to our hotel venue. She charged me $140 for my hair and make-up and $120 for my bridesmaids hair and make-up. I put a deposit of half down when I booked.

*These are Canadian prices – Niagara Falls

I feel SO blessed when I see other people’s prices — I paid $45 for hair/makeup.

$200 for bridal hair and makeup, both done by a mobile team in my hotel, but that’s here in Chicago, downtown. Bridesmaids are $130.

$250 for hair and makeup (including trail and coming to me for both trial and day of), $45 for bridesmaids hair or makeup, $65 for hair plus makeup for bridesmaids. I feel like it’s worth it.

I could NEVER charge $250 for a bridal updo! Im a hairdresser and I charge my brides 45-65 day of and 20% off of thier day of price for thier trial run. if they bring me the entire wedding party for thier BM updos I will give the bride 10% day off.

@StephC24:  Depends on where you’re located!  The bigger your city, the higher the costs is the rule of thumb.

After much shopping around for makeup artists, I got someone today for $100, coming to my location.  The next lowest price I got was $150, all the way up to $300.  Doing my own hair.

I was blown away by the prices I saw so I had originally planned on doing my own. To some extent, I wish I had. I ended up going to the salon and having it curled for $25, but it didn’t stay, and I could have probably done a better job had I known what she was going to do. I had a friend do my make-up so that one didn’t cost me anything. So I’m probably a bad example…
