I think like PP said it depends on your location. I live in Upstate NY and ours cost about $300 for the entire wedding party including moms.

o.O I’m sure the economy is a little diffferent around here…but for my makeup I paid $150 and that was for a trial and airbrush and false eyelashes and of course day of makeup. And for everyone else in my party it was only $50 for airbrush. The lady also came out to our house the day of. And my hair only cost me $40, but that was a friend price, she says she normally charges $60 for the brideMy hair was a fancy updo thingy (technical descrisption I know). For the wedding party they were only charged $20-$30.

If it were me, I keep on shopping around. The price you were qouted seems really expensive.

OMG that seems way expensive to me. But then again 100 is pushing it for my tastes.

It would’ve been about $360 for my hair plus $240 for my makeup if I wanted it done on site, so yeah, that sounds normal to me. I ended up going to a salon so that I could pay 1/3 of all the quotes I was getting for someone to come to me.

That’s insane!!

I’m getting hair and makeup for myself (plus trials), plus hair for 4 others and makeup for 5 others (so a total of 6 makeups, 5 hairs, and my trials) for about $580 plus tip. I’m budgeting $700 total. This is at a salon that has been very accommodating and basically lets us “take over” the space for a couple of hours.

They did give me a 15% discount since I’m paying for it all as a package, not each person paying individually.

Hair stylist is charging $165 for bride and $95 for bridesmaids and make-up artist is charging $125 for bride and between $60-$80 per bridesmaid depending on how many people get it done. For what it’s worth, I’m in NY and everything here seems to be ridiculously, crazy expensive. So, yes, your quote seems high to me!

Holy crap that seems insane. I’ve checked out a few places and it’s around $100 for hair, $100 for makeup for the bride. Bridesmaids/mom/flower girls etc are less.

$150 for hair and make-up on site.  I wish I had spent more.  I was quoted $250 by a more well-known (and recommended by the photographer) stylist and I should have spent the extra $100 and booked her.  My make-up looked great, but that’s because *I* did my foundation using Mrs. Rainbow’s tutorial.  My hair was…eh.  

I’m in Southern California.  That price is outrageous.  I talked to artists in that range, but they were all “hollywood” artists that were doing weddings to make extra $$$.  Just find a good, recommended wedding person!!

I live in LA and my bridal makeup and hair is costing me $600 and 125 for bridesmaids.  My friend is getting married in SF and her makeup and hair is 400. I think it just depends on area and how popular that makeup and hair stylist is.  Because like here in LA if you want someone that has a good reputation and is popular its going to cost you more than someone who is not as well known.

Everyone I have contacted is between 40-70 for hair (even super complex styles).  I’m actually going with a friend of my mom’s who will do it for free so I’ll just get her a giftcard.

As for makeup, the price range was 30-50. I think the quote you got was way too high.

That seems wildly expensive to me. I got some quotes in the Calgary/Banff/Canmore areas and it ended up being about $200 for both bridal hair and makeup.
