- Wedding: April 2014
I’m so frustrated trying to find someone to do my hair and makeup. The pricing in this area is out of control!
Since I can’t even stomach the prices myself, I decided that no one has to get their hair and makeup done but me, everyone else can DIY and it will be fine. But then the catch is all the traveling services seem to have a 3 person/4 service minimum. That works out to about $800-900. No way can I ask even 2 other people to commit to paying $150pp for their hair. That also means I can’t even just do my own makeup and get my hair done by any of the on-site hair services.
Can someone PLEASE recommend hair and makeup people who will do hair and makeup just for the bride for less than $500 total (inc tip)??? That means like $100 for hair + $100 trial and $100 for makeup + $100 trial, plus $80 tip. I still think those prices are pretty obscene, but I have $500 budgeted so I will grit my teeth and pay it if I have to.
I am totally willing to travel to a salon day of. I’m not from Baltimore though, so it needs to be easy to get to from the Inner Harbor area.
I know no one ever checks the Baltimore local board (even though I saw about a million of you out at the Baltimore bridal show :-P) so feel free to respond to this a month or so after the fact, I’ll probably still be looking for a while! I will also accept rants about how ridiculously expensive this is from people who have no particular advice to offer. Solidarity!!! 🙂
