I’m starting to think about my vendors for hair and makeup, and I was wondering how much you spent (or are going to spend) for your hair and makeup? I just don’t know what’s high price and what’s low price…
Please share how much you spent to get your hair done and your makeup done! I’m hoping to get airbrush makeup!

I spent $40 on hair trial. The actual hair will be $40 as well, and I’m doing my own makeup.

@MissBatman: oh hey! I know you – well, I know your sister – we were sorority sisters.
Anyway, I’m using Emily Miller (search for her on FB). She’s super inexpensive for the area. Trials are $50 each for hair and/or makeup, and day-of bridal makeup is $85 (includes falsies and airbrush), and day-of bridal hair is $75. Travel/booking fee is $75 flat.
BMs/Moms/etc are $55 each for hair and/or makeup.
I know two gals who have used her and they looked freaking amazing. She’s really nice, too.
There are definitely a lot of StL makeup/hair people who charge WAY more – Emily has some of the best prices I’ve seen.

@MissBatman: I spent more than I wanted.. I originally found a MUA at the bridal show.. He charged $150 for day of wedding including trial.. When trial came I had to pay half $75.. my trial makeup was awful.. I cried for a few minutes because my bridal shower was that day. So I had to fix my makeup.. Anyways I cancelled with him and found a new MUA that charged $150 also and included trial.. So happy I found her, she was great. But I ended up paying $225 for just makeup.

Totally depends on where you live.
In PA, I could get my hair and makeup done for $70 total.
Here in DFW, it would START at that if you’re lucky. In this area, you could easily pay $200-$400 for just your own hair and makeup depending on the salon, artist or stylist.
I would go to several places in your area and get quotes, but more importantly, check out portfolios. Be very wary of any “pro” without at least a small one.

I paid $40 for my hair trial, $50 for my wedding day hair and $30 for my makeup. I felt this was very reasonable and I was thrilled with their work!
