@LizTheProcrastinator:  the hair seems expensive! my hair stylist is charging me $50 including the hair trial, i am getting my makeup done by a airbrush professional and she charged a $50 deposit then another 50 for my makeup. and $50 for every bridesmaid.

@LizTheProcrastinator:  I think it depends where you live. Are you in Montreal? Because I know for a fact it depends on location. I got (as a BM) my hair and makeup done and it was roughly 150 total (no trials) on Long Island (near NYC) but I’m sure in suburbia where I grew up, it would be lower. I do think the hair cost is pretty high, but you’ll know for sure by calling around other places just to get their base rates.

I was lucky enough to find a student (that graduates a week after the wedding and has TONS of experience) from our local beauty school. Because she has not graduated I can not “pay” her so we are working out a deal that includes a written reference, photobook of pro pics, and a “tip” that will magically fall inside the photobook. 🙂 It is a leap of faith in some ways but at the same time I am super comfy with her and will know more after we meet later this week.
