Wow! The first quote I recieved was $250 for me, $225 per bridesmaids (2), $200 Mother of the groom, $75 flower girl and $75 trial. I’m sure they do beautiful work but damn that’s high comparatively.

$125 for myself (bride), $100 per bridesmaid/mom, $100 on-site fee (she came to our hotel), and 20% gratuity. Trial was separate. So for myself, my four bridesmaids, my mom, and my mother-in-law, it came to just under $1K in total. This was for airbrush make-up and lashes.

Worth every penny.

I will be paying $175 for make up (includes trial) & $175 hair (includes trial). Then I get a group discount for the girls $20 off each so it works out for $65 for hair and $65 for makeup. $45 for mother of brides hair and $35 for flower girls hair. I’ll end up paying  $1530 for myself, 7 Bridesmaid or Best Man, 2 mothers, and 4 little girls.

It was either $200 or $250 for makeup and hair. I can’t remember which.

I paid $75.00 for make up, hair, and she sewed my extensions into the clips.  She is a licensed cosmetologist.  Benefits of a small town.

I consider myself pretty good at makeup. Looking at these prices, I’m thinking I need to make a career change!

This will depend on where you live! Mine was 40 for the day off and a mini trial before (not the full on look, but most of it.) I also live in a small, rural town.

I’m paying $200 for my hair and make-up the day of. (The trial is $150 for both but she applies a $50 discount to the day-of total, which pulls it down to $150 also. But I don’t live there so I’m skipping the trial.) I’m paying $530 total for day-of make-up and hair for myself, one bridesmaid and our flower girl.
