I didn’t post this in the Local boards because the Boston board really doesn’t get a lot of action.
I’m looking for suggestions for hair and makeup that will travel to the hotel we’re getting ready at in Norwood, MA. I’ve already contacted Blushing Bridal and they haven’t gotten back to me yet, and from their website it would cost $725 for 5 people to get hair and makeup. Maybe it’s me being cheap but $725 for hair and makeup seams like A LOT to me and I don’t want to ask my girls to shell out 145 just for that. Any suggestions from anyone in the area?

Try looking up local salons in the area and see if they will come to you. I don’t know that area very well, unfortunately 🙁

Let me go ask my friend… I’m from Norwood originally, and she’s from Wrentham. I know she loved her hair/makeup people and they travelled.

PS where are you getting married?

I ended up using Gina Joubert for hair and Kimberly Fosher for mu. Both are willing to travel but have a travel fee… but they are also really reasonably priced from what I saw. Both of them have their current prices listned on their websites. (I also contacted blushing brides and gave up on waiting for a response). Kim was great, both in personality and work. My hair turned out really nice, but I felt Gina wasn’t as into her work as Kim was.

You will pay that for any established person in Boston to travel to you and do both hair and makeup for that many people. Unless you are willing to go to a salon and/or then travel to a makeup counter or DIY, that’s pretty much the going rate.

Just talked to my friend who used Special Event Beauty and she said they were amazing and reasonably priced. I’ll probably use them for my wedding, too.
