Wedding is in just over a month and I am freaking out because I haven’t chosen my hairstylist yet. Suddenly started calling around and spoke to the top yelp rated wedding salon in town which quoted my $350! I wish I had a job where 45 minutes of work paid that much. I know it is ridiculous but I am about to settle for it. Should I keep shopping around or is this what I should expect to pay? How much did everyone else pay?

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…

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.

Thanks for the advice ladies. Yeah I guess they misquoted me that price because they though thought I needed my makeup done as well. It is $200 for just the hair but that is me going to them which I don’t mind. I am still going to shop around though because I can probably find someone cheaper it sounds like.

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!
