I’m getting married this upcoming December and am having trouble finding “affordable” hair and makeup for the big day. I also don’t want to go to just anyone – would love to get personal recommendations. The most I’d like to spend day-of – for both hair and makeup, and for just me – is $500. Ideally, though, I’d like to spend way less than that.
Any recs would be great appreciate. Thank you!

Where will your wedding be in the city? I’d say your best bet is to go to a nice salon nearby. I can give some recs based on the area. Even at an upscale salon, it should nto be more than $500 for just you.

@sarahbabs the wedding is in NYC. I’d like to stay away from going to a random salon. I’d like personal recommendations if possible. Of course, I’d get a trial before either way!

@nycfoodie93: I sent you a PM.

@nycfoodie93: LOL, I wasn’t planning on recommending a “random salon,” but if you’d prefer to avoid salons altogether, no problem.

I am using Margie Brescani for my wedding in FEb. She came recommended from several brides on the knot. her price for hair and makeup is well under your $500 max.

Have you thought about doing your makeup yourself and only having your hair professionally done?

i used margie brescani this past Feb and she was amazing.
She did my hair and makeup – also for a BM, hair for flower girl and make up for grandmother.
With $500 just for you – she will definetly be able to work with you.
