That seems a bit steep to me but she might have a minimum for traveling, if she’s coming to your location?  I’m paying $200.   I bet you can do better than that but I’d probably expect to pay at least $150 as a normal updo at a nice salon without the “wedding upcharge” is usually like $75-85…

My mom’s doingmy hair since she’s a hairstylist. Not sure what she usually charges, but my eyebrow threader who’s also a hairstylist usually charges $250 for hair and makeup and she’s amazing! I think the quote you got it tooo much!

As soon as you hire a hair stylist from a salon you will pay through the roof, WALK AWAY. Just because they charge the most doesn’t make them the best. The best thing to do is to find a company that does just weddings and formal occasions and come out to you.

I’m paying $80.00 for each person, I have 5 bridesmaids and myself to have an updo, there is a $40.00 early morning fee and a $15.00 travel fee. So all up it’s $535.00 for all six of us.

You will find that it’s about $100.00 per person and the more people that need an updo then the prices usually comes down, so you could be paying $90.00 per person if you have 3 people and $80.00 per person if you have more than 5 people have have an updo, for example

Many companies also offer hair and makeup. Do your research and have a trial before booking anyone. Good luck.

I’ve been quoted around $500 for hair and makeup for just me, and about $180 for BMs.  Yeah, DC prices.  Great.

My bridesmaids are being charged $65 and mine will probably be around $100.  Not sure until I figure out what I’m doing though, which will be in about an hour at my hair trial!
