What’s everyone paying for wedding hair and makeup? My girl quoted me $60 for hair and $30 for makeup, and that includes travel to our location, which is 40 minutes away. I thought this was an awesome price, but a couple of my bridesmaids think it’s too much. I’m giving the bridesmaids the choice to either get their hair & makeup done, or do it themselves. I’m totally fine with them doing it themselves, it just makes me feel bad that they think it’s expensive. Am I wrong in thinking that this is a good price?

Seems pretty good to me! I got married in the Maritimes too, if you want to compare- I did my own makeup, but hair was $300 for me and 2 bridesmaids, including tip.

no, that’s a really good price. you found a great deal. I don’t have mine picked out yet, but for my sister’s wedding I paid around $60 for hair and we did our own makeup. That was us going to their location.

Sounds like an awesome price to me! I think I’m paying $80 hair and $65 make-up (this was low because I’m doing very light make up)
That includes travel to do hair on location. She’s also doing hair for my 5 BMs, MOB, and MOG at $60-70 (can’t remember exactly). I’m paying for all.
I got an amazing price because when I booked her she had just moved to the area and had just set up independently after years of working at destination wedding resorts around the country. I’m really excited because her work is fantastic!!
Most places I looked in the area ranged from $100-150 for hair and $90-120 for make up not including travel fees. So I feel like I’m getting an amazing bargain!

That is an amazing price! My girls are going to have to pay $75 for make-up and probably $75-$100 for hair if they want it!

I am paying about 175USD for mine (hair and airbrush makeup) so I am going to say you got an awesome deal!

I think it’s cheap. You’re offering to pay for one service and the other is optional, so I don’t think you have to feel bad. If you were requiring that they pay for both, then that’s a different.
The original place I found was about $70 for each service, but my trial ended poorly so the place I’m looking at now is $100 for each service. I think I’m going to pay for everyone’s hair and make make-up completely optional. I’m definitely fine with them doing their own make-up as I wouldn’t expect them to pay $100 (although a couple may want to).

That’s an amazing price. Like volcomgirl850307, I’m in the DC area and my hair and makeup is $325 ($275 additional for a trial). My bridesmaids hair will be between $50-100 per person depending on what they get and makeup is $100 each. I’m paying for all of their hair and makeup because I think the prices are ridiculous but I want them to relax and have fun with me the day of.

My MUA is coming to my parents house to do 5 make ups she is charging €200. She lives nearby so she’s not charging a call out fee. And my hairdresser is charging €150 for hair for 5 of us.

Around $1200 for hair and makeup for me and 7 bridesmaids. A bit pricey, but I’m also getting married in big and relatively pricey city.
