    That price included

      1. initial trial


        1. bridal portrait trial


          1. bridal portraits

            I think it was right around $100 for the day of hair and makeup and $70 for the trial run. So $170 altogether, before tip.

            I’m spending $75 on mine and $50 on each bridesmaid.

            Speaking of tips, what do you think is reasonable (ballpark estimate) if she does good work?

            @pengoala: I read yelp reviews online and stalked websites like Weddingbee and The Knot! The company that we went with for hair had about a gazillion reviews under the Weddingbee vendors section.

            I’m spending $425, that is for myself and my 4 ladies. This also includes travel costs. She was recomended to me by my photographer.

            Initially I had someone booked and just when I was going to send her the deposit she emailed me to say that she couldn’t do it for the price she told me and maybe we could work something out. So I just found someone else who seems way better and more reliable!

            For my day-of hair+makeup, I’m paying $380. But I’m getting the trial for free ($140 value). I’m also paying for 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man, my mom and Future Mother-In-Law for $100 per person, hair+makeup. Plus, $30 for travel fees.

            I did a lot of yelping and searching through Weddingbee boards to find my person.

            I’m paying $100 for hair and make up including trial but my friend owns the salon, it would have been $300ish I think. The BM’s are getting hair for $30 each (discounted from $60, I believe), they’re doing their own make up

            My make up is $70 and my hair is $75. Bridesmaids are $55 for make up and my MOH was actually $85 for hair.

            Hair was FREE, as it was a gift from my Bridesmaid or Best Man, whom is my hair stylist. Makeup was $70.
