    I was just married on 10/2/10 and mine was $35. I also paid for my mother and my sister to have their hair done and my total was only $95 all together. I did my own make up though. I attached a photo of my hair results =) There is an up close and a photo from behind as well.

    @Statutory Grape: Dior has a fabulous air brush foundation for $60 and it will last you around 6 months if you’d rather buy it!

    My salon in Chicago – $100 for bridal hair, $60 for bridal makeup.

    Mine is only going to cost $50. My mom works at a salon and one of her girlfriends is really good at formal styles.

    I think for a trial, the actual, AND your airbursh make up that is a reasonable price.

    @Statutory Grape: yeah, it’s an expensive salon in the hoity toity neighborhood where my campus is, too! I do wish they wouldn’t have separate “bridal” prices that are higher, but they’ve given me plenty of free extra services in the past, so I’m not complaining. 🙂

    For mine in mid-MO, it was $90 for hair including trail, but not including tip. Airbrush makeup was $30 not including tip. Total charged: $120. I thought it was quite reasonable!

    I’m not in the midwest, but was curious to see what it costs out there! I was married in philly and my hair and makeup total was about $170 not including the trials. While it was a big expense, I can promise you it was worth every penny, esp after spening so much $ on a photographer, dress, etc. These are the pictures that you will frame and keep on display forever, so make sure you look and feel your best!
