How much did you spend on Hair and Makeup for the big day?
How much did your trial cost? Was your trial cost applied towards the final cost? Did your cost include hair or was that separate?
I am very disgruntled after meeting with a hair salon owner today. She was very rude and told me that my face was not pretty enough and that she’d need to charge extra. Moreover, she went on to say that she did not provide any of the makeup or the hair styling tools. I didn’t understand this. She owns a very well-reputed salon, so I’m not sure what was up. Sorry, had to vent to the bees 🙂

um… I haven’t had my big day yet, but PLEASE do not pay this woman for her services. What kind of professional insults a potential client? There must be someone else you can spend your hard earned dollars on.

I would not go to that salon either. She doesn’t deserve your money since she is insulting you! I paid $100 for day of makeup for myself (she travelled about an hour to where I lived. This covered the trial too. I think my hair was about $50.

Thank you TeddyBears. I do not plan to return. I went to the salon for years for various services, but I no longer plan to go there. It was a huge shock and kind of stole the excitement out of my engagement.

I am so glad to hear you are not paying that lady! I can’t believe she would do that to you.
I am paying $100.00 to have my make-up done. She is going to do the free consultation on the day of my bachelorette party so I can be done up for going out 🙂
Luckily my sister knows how to do hair so she will be doing mine of the wedding.

Go to a MAC counter, they rock. Eff that lady who said you werent pretty enough, she is just bitter and unhappy and she will probably purposely make you look bad for your wedding.

Wow, I’m sorry you had such a crummy experience. That lady sounds like a real jerk! 🙁 I would definitely try another place. If you don’t have any personal recommendations, I’d check out a makeup counter at your local department store. Try a brand you like/have experience with–or if you don’t know, let us know and I bet a lot of folks around here can make some recommendations for a brand based on your style/skin type. You definitely don’t want to be working with someone on the day of your wedding who is going to be so rude to you!
In my case, I was going to use the Laura Mercier counter at a department store. The charge for the trial was a $75 minmum product purchase and tip. The charges would have been the same for the day of the wedding (another $75 in products), but I ended up deciding to DIY because the makeup artist I worked with wasn’t available for my date.

- Wedding: October 2007 - a beautiful church and hotel reception
that is HORRIBLE! I really think that a huge part of your wedding stylist is that they are people that make you feel HAPPY and GOOD about yourself! I would pay more for someone who is less “professional” but made me feel like I was beautiful rather than a meanie professional who made me feel bad on my wedding day.
Depending on which city you’re located in, I would say wedding makeup would be about $100-$200 and hair being about $100-150. Makeup tends to be more, but if you can get both of them done at the same location it saves you time and headache from going to location to location!

I have no advice on costs, lucky enough to have a relative who is in the business do it for free… but I will say one thing: That salon owner is a bitch. Don’t frequent her establishment at all. And consider, after the wedding, leaving a negative feedback for her on Yelp or something. Talk about rudeness.

I can’t believe someone would say that to a potential client. I don’t have any advice about how much this stuff costs, but you should definitely put that woman on blast. Write a review on Yelp.com!

Good Lord! This woman is vile. Please don’t go there, she does not deserve you’re good money, I would go online and leave terrible reviews about her so called salon that doesn’t even have proper tools and her insulting you.
