Here in northern CA a trim with my fav hair stylist is $65 not including tip!  But anyways I digress….my trials were anywhere from $25-50 and my actual hair day of including washing, blow drying curling/styling veil placement and also having my MOH’s hair done was $125 so I guess around $65? But we had to go to the salon, people all wanted like an extra $100 to travel to our venue (1/2 hour away) to do our hair.  Insane I tell you!  Anything with the word “bridal” on it usually gives people the right to severely increase their rates! I think they did a great job for the cost of my hair the day of…it lasted all day.  I brought my secret styling spray with me that I learned of in one of my trials at another salon!

My trial is going to be $60 and my actual day-of hair is going to start at $65, the price varies based on the style and the amount of worl she needs to do on my hair.

@ladyjenn-I love that look! Very pretty!

I’m not doing a trail for that reason. If I’m forking out an arm and a leg to have my hair/make-up done the day of, there’s no way I can afford a trial! = (

Thank you guys!  I actually had a few trials, as I was figuring out what I wanted, but some upped the price for going to my venue or after hte trial they would increase the price when they found out it was a sunday.  I was at the point of giving up, so my regular stylist who wasn’t available on the day of my wedding recommended I use her co worker, I took a chance and went blindingly on my wedding morning!  I had met her but she never did a trial on my hair!  Needless to say she followed directions pretty well and it worked out really well, thank goodness, my hair was my #1 priority over my makeup!  I’m glad I did my own makeup too becuase the MUA’s were caking it on and I’m way too old for that look.

Mine is going to be $180 for the trial/day of.  I know, I am totally appalled at that price, too.  My stylist charges $55 for a bridesmaid updo, why is mine so much?  It’s the same thing!  I would go somewhere else but she’s the only person I trust.  I know it will hold all night and look great, so I’m going to suck it up and pay it.

Make-up is the same.  I’m considering doing my own.

Okay, I know mine is completely outrageous, but I am so totally in love with the stylist and her salon (it’s a converted house and it’s just. so. cute.) that I’m willing to do it.  My hair (updo) and makeup for the consultation, trial, and day-of (including champagne and food for my girls) will be $300.  I have a TON of hair and a super complicated updo, which may be contributing to that.  My dad is paying for my wedding, but I’m not letting him pay for this because it’s such an unnecessary splurge.  My BMs that are getting their hair done (I gave them the option, if they were interested) will cost $75, and I’m paying for that as well.
