I am struggling with the decision of whether I will get my hair and makeup done in the hotel room (where we’re all getting ready) or at a salon. It is looking like it will be around $100-$150 more to have someone come to me vs. going to a salon.
Either way, I think my bridesmaids will end up getting their hair & makeup done at the Aveda beauty school that is across the street from the hotel where we will be hanging out that day. It is $250 total for all 5 of them (hair AND makeup).
So…is it worth it to have the experience of having all your girls around you in a hotel? I am worried that if I get my hair and makeup done at a salon, no one will be there to be excited with me (or it will be just my mom and mother-in-law).

In my opinion, I would want them to come to me however, if your budget does not allow then just get everything done at once. If you get your makeup done at the salon, however, I would plan your appt closer to the wedding time so your makeup does not have time to fade, smudge, sweat off, etc.

I am getting my hair and makeup done by a friend who owns a salon so we’re getting all of ours done at my house for extremely cheap, but I would have done it either way. I voted that yes, its worth it… however, the reason I think its important is for photos/the memory of getting ready with your girlfriends. To me, its worth the extra money, but if you are happy to have the memories with your friends and take pictures after you get your hair done, then save the money!
