I have an aunt who agreed to do hair for me and my 3 bridesmaids so I plan to give her $100 as a thank you since she is missing a day of work at the salon. Make-up is $55 for each of us (incl airbrush) plus $40 for travel. I liked that they aren’t charging me more just bc I’m the bride.

Yeah its pretty ridiculous! I’m paying $350 for hair and makeup, $100 for the hair and makeup trial, plus $40 for hair extensions that I bought on Ebay. (But she is waiving my eyelash and hair extension application fee). My BMs are gonna do their own hair and makeup, but I’m paying $140 to do my mom’s hair and makeup too.
Its a TON of money but I already spent so much money on my dress that I couldn’t justify not looking good in my photos – which ALSO cost a lot. Pictures are all I have left at the end of the day, you know? Luckily I took engagement photos after my makeup trial and everything photographed beautifully.

My hair was $80 and I gave a $20 tip (my stylist came to me)
My makeup was $120 and I gave $20 tip (she came to me)
$240 for me. If my bms wanted their makeup and hair, they had to pay for it themselves.

That sounds like a LOT. I paid $25 for my make up (airbrush) and my hair was free because I had 10 girls getting their hair done but if I had paid it would have been $85

- Wedding: October 2011 - Tre Bella, Mesa, AZ
That seems a little high, but it’s probably regional (California…). I worked at a salon, and our prices for bridal were about 1/3 cheaper than your prices (Arizona). Luckily my SIL went to beauty school, so my bridal hair/makeup will be free. BMs will be $30/ea, and I’m planning to give her a big tip.

@tokoloshee: I paid exactly what you paid. And I got married in SO Cal, so that’s spot on. I freaked out when I got quotes back, too!

My makeup is going to be $100 (airbrush) plus $20 if I want false eyelashes, Hair is $90. The travel fee is $100 so I decided I would come to her salon.

My hair ALWAYS costs a lot.. natural hair is so annoying. Anyway, that will probably cost $100. My make-up? If I like this Mary Kay rep then it will be $25. I have a feeling I’ll beg a MAC artist to do it though 🙂

If you can, make an appointment with Bobbi Brown at the mall. They have the BEST natural bridal makeup I have seen. 4 friends of mine have done it and its gorgeous.
