My stylist didn’t charge me anything for my hair trial, not sure about the makeup(didn’t ask but was preparing to pay full price either way).  I guess it depends on where you go?

I am a MUA and I charge full price for the trial becuase I am doing a full face of makeup  and becuase if the bride decides she doesnt want to use my services I am still getting paid for what I did. I def would under no circumstances skip the trial, that can lead to a lot of confusion and headache.

I paid full price for the trials and they were SUBSTANTIALLY  more than that.  I would highly recommend doing the trials.  It really made things easier for me.  My stylist spent a lot of time on my trials so that we were both on the same page.

My trial for hair & makeup was $150 for one company .. and $175 for another company.  Because of that, I didn’t spend much time looking around and latched onto the first one I liked (the 2nd one) hahaha.

My total for hair and makeup for myself and 7 of my bridesmaids is going to be around 2k.

ETA  – My trial prices were NOT included in the damage (sigh)… AND to add insult to injury, the artists are charging me TRAVEL fees ($60 each) even though their studio is less than 10 minutes away from my venue.  Worst part is they weren’t even willing to negotiate the travel fees.  If I weren’t so desperate for a hair/makeup artist, I’d say screw them 😛

Oh nevermind, just checked- $75 each for travel fees.  Ridiculous.  Sorry I’m thread-jacking with my rants!
