How many bridesmaids do you have? That would impact whether or not it can be viewed as reasonable or not. Also is she doing your bridesmaids makeup or just yours?

Ms_Bombay:  Agreed.

Panda13:  For my wedding we are going to a salon which is approximately 95 pp (mine is more) for hair. The MU I have is a professional who has experience doing makeup for shows, fashion, brides, etc. and it is 75 pp (she will be coming to where we are getting dressed). I have two bridesmaids, but there will be others getting stuff done. But for just the three of us it will be around 535 + taxes and tip … Sooo it could be if she is really good, well known, you have quite a few people and she is travelling far.

Panda13:  Considering how much time it is going to take her to do 7 bm plus bridal hair and makeup (probably 8-9+ hours for just herself) I don’t think the price is unreasonable. However, that is based on my knowledge of salon prices in my region, and not in Maryland … I hope she has someone assisting her with that amount of work!

It doesnt sound unreasonable to me either, especially for the fact that she is traveling to where you guys will be and for the amount of bridesmaids you have. However if you feel uneasy, you could continue to shop around and see if there is someone who is equally as good who is more reasonable.
