I’m paying $100 for hair and $150 for makeup (airbrush). I live on Long Island so everything is expensive of course.

Mine is costing me $75 for air brush but $85 if I wanted false eye lashes. Idk what my hair is going to cost prob $60 or so. A family friend is doing it who works in a salon btw I live in upstate ny.

So far most places I’ve looked into have been around $14-$150 for both hair and make-up, roughly $100 for a trial and between $75-$100 per bridesmaid.

I was quoted $160.

I had paid a make-up artist to teach me how to do my own make-up years ago and already had invested in nice make-up. So I just did it myself – worked well for me and I was very comfortable with it.

I was quoted anywhere from $120 for hair and makeup to $200 (plus a $150 trial fee) for makeup only. I live in Indiana. I don’t understand why it’s so expensive here!

xstitchbride425:  Total including trial. I’m in GA, though – our cost of living is probably lower in general.

Tack on “wedding” or “bridal” to a service and the price skyrockets. I’m fortunate to have met both my pro hair stylist and makeup artist through social circles so they’ve cut me some deals. I’ll come out under $100 with a trial for makeup and my hair will cost me nothing since I’m paying for my BMs hair. Other quotes in my midwestern suburb were pretty comparable to yours, it’s outrageous!

xstitchbride425:  Mine is approximately $190 for day of makeup. I’m in the DMV area. My quoted price seemed relatively equivalent to other people in the area.

ms_snugs:  If you don’t mind me asking which salon/comapy are you using? I’m in Ga too and can’t seem to find anything remotely reasonable. I looked up a company called Brushworx (hair and makeup) and they quoted me 120$ for trial, and wedding day hair/makeup 275$.

xstitchbride425:  I work in the industry, for one of the most prestige brands out there.  That does seem a little high.  But look at where you’re going? High end well known salon, maybe with global/celebrity stylists, then I could see those prices for sure.
