vintagekitten:  You might have to leave the word “bride” out =) If you are willing to get your hair done alone… just ask for an updo cost and makeup. However, you want the full bridal party with you… you will be quoted the $150 and up per person charge. +/- on location fees.

rmsgirl:  Damn, that’s steep! I thought Helsinki, Finland was bad, but you paid more for your hair than I did for hair AND makeup. At my normal salon, my hair cost 95 euros (incl. trial) and my makeup cost 140 euros (incl. trial). My MOHs makeup cost 65 euros (each, I had two) and I think their hair was also 65 euros each.

I’m paying $220 for hair and makeup, both on-site at the hotel we’re getting ready at. For my area, I think we got a great deal, and both people did a great job. I definitely found options that were way, way more expensive when I was looking.

I’m in the DC suburbs and I paid $90 for makeup and $50 for the trial, which is a steal in this area.  Hair was free as it was my wedding gift from my hairdresser friend.

vintagekitten:  i lucked out that i was talking to the lady at the department store counter where i purchase makeup. It turned out she was a MUA trying to get going. I will be paying $150 for makeup and hair is $80 as im just doing a blowout. I think thats a steal living in chicago where established vendor charge $400-600 for the day.

My hair was $185 and my makeup was $50. For each bridesmaid, hair was $70 and makeup was $40. My hair trial was included in the price.  Total for myself and 5 bridesmaids for hair and makeup was $785 plus $100 tip for the hair girl and $50 tip for the makeup girl. After all was said and done, $935. I found my vendors on weddingwire.

$145 for hair, airbrush makeup and false eyelashes in Las Vegas, and the stylists are coming to my venue. It was the second-lowest quote I got, some over $300!!

I’ll be paying $40 for airbrush makeup + $10 for strip lashes and $40 for hair.  This is rural midwest, but I still think this is outrageously cheap!  And they will be travelling to my venue.  I will have to pay for a makeup trial.

My mom did my hair, so that was free. Professional makeup was $130, including the trial. It was airbrushed and looked amazing!

I guess I’m on the very cheap end of things. A very good friend of mine only charges $45 for both hair and makeup. I live in a small town in a small province in Canada.

vintagekitten:  Yuuuup, makeup/hair is much more than we all thought lol. I’m paying $1100 total, which includes all my girls’ hair/makeup, travel to the venue, 3 artists, bride’s hair and airbrush makeup, and bridal portrait (ie trial run) hair and airbrush makeup. After other quotes, I was surprised they were so inexpensive with such great ratings and referrals. The highest quote I got was $2600 (face palm)
