That actually doesn’t sound too bad to me!  I’ve been trying to price out "wedding hair and make-up" and I keep coming up with around $300 – $350 for both.  I think I may be making a mistake by saying it’s for a wedding!

I got married in CA, but my wedding do was about $50. I’m sure you can find a cheaper place to do hair in Atlanta too.

My hair stylist does cuts & styles out of her own house, and gives me great cuts at a great price. She’s done up-do’s for weddings as well (she used to work in a salon, but now has another job). If you’d like, PM me for her contact info and you can ask what her prices are. She’s really great 🙂

I honestly havent’ gotten around to this part yet, but have looked into studios that come to you and also do a trial hair run and makeup also.

I’m not doing the whole updo.  Half up half down most likely.

  • Wedding: February 2010

I have a friend who is getting married in December-so she’s a bit ahead of me in the planning process.  She is using Formal Faces for her hair and makeup-and has offered it to her bridesmaids as well.  They will actually come to your location.  I know for the bridesmaids the cost for hair and makeup is $125; just hair $80 and just makeup is $70.  I’m in the wedding, so not something I’m willing to pay just to be a bridesmaid-but for my wedding in February-it may totally be worth it!

My really good friend is doing my hair and makeup.  She is awesome!  Since she is a friend of mine she is giving me these services as my wedding gift.  

She normally charges $150 for hair and $150 for makeup this includes a trial for both.

I live Out of Town from her so I am not getting a trail, however she has been doing my hair and makeup for years, so I am not worried one bit.  I am planning to give her a nice fat tip!!  

I would pay if she didn’t insist on "giving" me the services as her gift.  She is worth every penny! 

FYI – im not from Atlanta But I would imagine the cost is similar in St Louis.

I used Cortney Nelms (http://www.hairbycortney.com) – she comes to you, and she’s so good at what she does!

I used a small salon in N.GA and it was $100 for my wedding up-do (including 2 hour trial).  I thought that was a fair price given that I typically pay $85 or more for a bridesmaid up-do with no trial at my typical salon in Alpharetta.

I second Cortney Nelms!!!!

 She was AMAZING!

I got married June 13th.  She came to my hotel, got their early and even did an extra bridesmaid that I didn’t anticipate.

My hair for day of and trial was $100.00

My bridesmaid’s all had updo’s at $65.00 each.

My mom had a blowout and style for $55.00. 

Cortney does awesome work and she’s just a great person.  I highly recommend her!She kept me calm that day as well when our hectic schedule got behind.

Tell her Alicia sent you!

Curious – if you used Cortney for hair, did you have someone else come in for make-up?

Cortney doesn’t do makeup, unfortunately – but I’m sure she has recommendations for someone who will!
