Hi Everyone – I’m in need of some hair and makeup recommendations. Specifically I’m talking something reasonably priced ($100 or less for hair, $50 or less for makeup) that can accomodate me and three to four bridesmaids. They also would need to be in the Hopewell Junction/Fishkill/Cold Spring area. I think Poughkeepsie would be too far.
I don’t live in the area so I don’t have a regular salon. Looking online it doesn’t appear many places have websites so I thought I’d go to you! I also listed a few below with comments in case anyone has specifics on them:
Euphoria, Hopewell Junction – They can’t handle both hair and makeup for all of us
Steven Amendola Salon, Hopewell Junction – my friend used them for her wedding and she was so/so on the hair people, but had great things to say about the girl who did her makeup. Anybody else use them?
Salon Doriano, Fishkill
Ambiance, Hopewell Junction
Roy Lopez – Fishkill
Thanks in advance!

hey its Eileen. Have you had any luck with this yet? I can ask some friends from home if you want. Are you looking to go to the Salon or have them come to you?
Hope everything is going okay..

Hi Eileen – I decided that in order to pay the prices I wanted to pay and go to a place I felt confident in I would have to schlep to Poughkeepsie. I’m going to use Bella Luci Salon and they seem great. They can handle my entire party, prices are within my range and they are up to date on the latest hairstyles/updos/makeup. They’re not far off Rt.9 so at least it’s a straight shot back down to Fishkill where everyone is staying.
Thanks for checking in!

I was just going to ask you the same thing! I was wondering about who to get to do hair. There were a couple people that I was interested in but havn’t heard any recommendations about either. There’s LJ from Robert’s salon and Dorothy from pretty bird bridal. But I’ll check out the salon your going with too. Did you go for a trial yet?

I haven’t done a trial yet – they recommend within two months of the wedding because your hair and complexion will be similar to the wedding day. Definitely makes sense for me for the make-up as I am soooo pale right now and will hopefully get some sun this summer.
I did however find out that a friend has been going to the salon for a long time and loves it. And I LOVE her hair so I think it was a good choice.
