a11ieny:  I’m in NYC, I’m paying $200 for mine, and then $85 per person after for make up. She brings assistants at her own cost (she’s based out of Westchester but works in the city)

She’s also doing my hair for $200, and $95 pp after. 

I’m paying for my hair and make up, hair and MU for both moms, and MU for all 6 of my girls. Costing a fortune, but seems to be cheaper than your person. let me know if you want the recommendation! I already had my trial and LOVED it

$1,000 sounds ridiculous tbh. Even though you’re in NYC, your bridesmaids’ makeup shouldn’t cost that much since there is a huge number of MUAs (similar to why nails are relatively cheap here). If it was your makeup that cost $250, I would find that easier to stomach since the bride’s makeup is generally more finicky and involved than the BMs’, but not $250/person for everyone. I’ve had mine done really well for formal events for ~$150 or less.

tjacob2014:  I’ve sent you the info, here is a pic from my trial. She did airbrush, fake lashes, and put in my own clip in extensions. We did two different hairstyles, but this was the favorite.

That seems a little pricy but I’m not sure what average costs in NYC are—Me and my bridesmaids will be paying around $700 for all of us (hair & makeup) and they charge $75 to come to our site.

That seems extremely high just for makeup. I’m in the greater Seattle area, the woman I hired did my hair, makeup (false lashes, airbrush) and a trial for $275. Each Bridesmaid or Best Man (4 in total) was $85 each for both hair and makeup. My mom was $55 for just hair – so $670 total. My artist also came with an assistant to our site, started at 6am. She has since raised her prices to $300 for bridal hair & makeup, with the trial, falsies, airbrush, and her prices went up by $10 for bridal party. I found her prices to be average for the area. Definitely keep looking around to make sure those are average prices for your area!

a11ieny:  I almost hired jadey wadey from Instagram back in january for around 1600 for 5 girls but was told that I needed to wait until my 6 month mark (April). Well I waited and emailed her only to find out that she had raised it to 2500!! For 5 girls (which was her limit). That for me was the cutoff. Also so unprofessional to change the price on me when we were in the talks for 6 months. Bleh!

My hair dresser referred me to mine. $180 for hair and make-up, in Dallas.

I’m in the DC area and am paying about $950 for my hair and makeup (including trial) plus hair and makeup for three bridesmaids.  We are going to add makeup for MOB and MOG but that will probably only add another maybe $160-170 I think.  The DC area is pretty comparable in terms of cost with NYC so I would think $1000 for makeup alone to be a bit high unless the MUA is the best thing since sliced bread.
