    I paid $120 for my hair and make up. This included the trials and wedding day for both!

    My hair and makeup trial cost the same as it will the day of. I am paying $60 for hair and $50 for makeup.

    I only had my hair done the day-of and it was $40. I think my trial for hair and makeup was something like $70.

    $100 each for hair and airbrush make-up, and my trials were the same price as the day-of. I also have to pay a travel fee because there are no independent stylists or MUAs based in the small town where I am getting married. Even with the travel fee, this is still a good deal in this area. Larger on-site companies charge $150-200 for hair and $125-$150 for make-up, and they had larger travel fees because they are based even farther away, and they had larger bridal party minimums.

    OMG you guys are lucky! I paid $180 for hair and makeup, not including a trial (I didn’t do one – I knew and trusted my stylist). Plus a generous tip. But it was worth every penny.

    I talked to some cheaper stylists (more in the $80-100 for hair and makeup range), and they weren’t really willing or able to do what I wanted. I am SO glad I went with high quality over cheap (it was my one big splurge for the wedding – no favors, no accessories, no pretty shoeclips… but man do I look pretty in the photos!).
