My MUA charges $695 plus travel fees.

However, the more people getting hair and makeup done, the less it is.  I paid for my 4 girls and our moms so my bridal makeup ended up being $310.

I spent a total of $3,400 which included 2 trials, an early morning start and return hair service.

I think it really depends on your area. Yes, for decent hair/makeup in my location its around the 350-500 dollar range.

I’m paying 65$ per person for makeup and 80$ per person for hair… My usual hairdresser does his clients’ hair for free when they get married, so I’ll just be paying for my BMs hair. I’m in a major metropolitan area. I think paying more than 100$ per service is kind of crazy, no matter where you are.

I paid around $320 for my destination elopement hair and makeup which is a lot but that included a travel fee since she drove 3 hrs to the location. 

For our elopement celebration with friends and family I paid $75 for makeup and $60 for hair. I preferred the hair and makeup for the elopement celebration

I got ranges from $150 for both up to $600 😐 My MUA charges $125 which includes a trial (so on the lowER end) but she was/is amazing! I think the hair is going to be $80, but I’m pretty good at doing my own hair so if it goes horribly wrong I’ll be able to fix it lolol.

It really depends on your area. I’m in the DC area and bridal makeup costs $200, trial is $100 and travel is $36. I also had to book a minimum of two others with mine which was $96 pp.

My hair is $150, $85 for the trial and $60 for travel.

Total for just my hair and makeup is $631. $557 if you divide travel cost per person getting services.

I am eloping in San Francisco and paying just under $500 for my hair and makeup. This includes travel expenses for the artist to travel to me.
