I am thinking about paying for hair and makeup for myself and my entire bridal party, including the moms. I am going to have eight bridesmaids. So, myself, two mom’s, and eight bridesmaids would be 11 people that would need hair and makeup done.
I am trying to get an idea of what it would cost in the Northern New Jersey area.
Are you supposed to book your makeup artist and hair stylist seperatly? I keep reading how sometimes the same person does hair and makeup, but I am not sure.
Any input would be great!!
Thanks in advanced!

I am in northern NJ, and I had makeup and hair done for myself plus three others. My wedding day makeup was $169 for traditional makeup. Bridesmaids were $89 for airbrush and $79 for traditional makeup. Fake eyelashes were extra (I don’t remember how much). My wedding day hair was $169. For members of the bridal party, it was $79 each. There was an additional $75 on-location fee for the hair stylist. My makeup trial was $85, and my hair trial was $95.
ETA: I had two separate people – one woman did the makeup, and the other did our hair.

I paid $300 for myself, my Maid/Matron of Honor and my mom to be done day of the wedding at the hotel down the Jersey Shore. Makeup included lashes and airbrush for everyone. There was no travel fee because she lived within a half hour of the venue. She was amazing! My usual stylist came to my hotel to do my hair. She charged me 100 bucks.
I paid $50 for a makeup trial prior to booking the makeup artist for my wedding.

I’m getting married in Philly but my hair/makeup team is in Cherry Hill. My girl is about the same as the others mentioned, $75 for both hair and airbrush makeup for the bridesmaids (so $150 total if they do both) and I think $150 for bridal hair (don’t quote me on that I don’t have the paper work in front of me!).
I am using Jess from Your Day Your Way. My sister in law used her as well and we all loved her and her team. They came to us, are very nice, efficient and did an amazing job! I highly recommend her.
