Is this to get it one for the wedding or just in general?

I am paying close to 200 for hair and make up and probably another 60 for nails so I say yeah

It sounds pretty normal for a salon.  When I did makeup for weddings, I would do on location and charge more, but people don’t realize the work, and tools that go into doing makeup, and also traveling and my labor.  But 35 seems pretty average if you are getting it done at a salon.  I would advise going to get a trial first of both your hair and your makeup.

Although, I don’t agree with charging more if so many people are doing it or whatever.  I never agreed with makeup artists chargin more for the bride.  It’s still a face like everyone elses and I always used the same “staying power” products for everyone.  So I never agree with that.  If anything I would always charge less if there were a lot of people in the party.

It spuds like a good price I paid 260 for mobile hair and make up for me which included a trial. $65 per bm on the wedding day for just hair. It’s about an extra $100-$150 for mobile as opposed to going to the salon

Sounds very reasonable to me. I would highly recommend a trial though, at least for your makeup. I was highly allergic to my second trial and ended up with a huge puffy red face and a rash – not what you want on your wedding day!

@ssilva1:  It’s helpful to look at pictures to find what you want your look to be.  Your idea of made up and youre makeup artist’s idea will be totally different, and the same can go with a natural look too.  It might be worth it for you to go to a makeup counter and see if they can do your makeup for your wedding day.  I’ve heard of others doing this but don;t know much about it.  If you don;t want any elaborate looks, maybe someone you know is good with makeup and can do it for you.  I know a few of my friends just could not put their own eyeliner on to save their lives, but they were fine with me doing it.  I’m jus tthe opposite!! I cant stand people putting anything up to my eye.. im the only one who can do it.  But if you are ok with makeup, then you can find some super easy and great tutorials online, on you tube, or weddingblogs.  As for hair…I’m no good at that, but I def shopped around on my price on that.  Again.. its helpful to take pics of what you what your look to be to your stylist.  You want to be sure that you still look like you on your day, and no one knows that better than you.

@ssilva1:  Then I wouldn’t waste my time trying and washing off makeup if you don;t like it.  Id try to hammer something down, to avoid stress on the day of.  Trust me, you will be stressed enough and you dont want to have a tender eye from washing or wiping off makeup.  Maybe a friend or family member could do it for you?

The make-up is a great price! I’m getting quotes starting at $75

That sounds good, I’ve been quoted higher.
