Those prices seem about right, even like a good deal (crazy I know!). That’s what it would cost in Boston for an established person who comes to you at the hotel to get you ready. If you find someone more obscure/less established, you may be able to save, but then you’re going to have to chance the results…

I’m affaid so. I was so shocked at this one girls rates for simply a freaking trial. I’ve only looked into MUA. I haven’t even given thought to hair yet. I can only deal with one heart attack at a time.

My hair (and 3 BMs) was ~$500, My make-up (and 5 BMs) was ~800. They came to the hotel and were awesome. Sorry, it is what it is in NYC

That sounds about right…we paid about $700-750 for hair for 5 of us, and about $650 for makeup for 6 of us.

That sounds about right.

I booked ours during a promotion so got hair & makeup for 6 + hair & makeup trial for me for around $1100.

We went to them but to come to us would have been another $100?

I am paying $1200 for hair for me and 7 BMs and $1200 for make up for me and 9 others (BMs, Mom, FMIL).  Total it will probably be around $3000 incl tip……


edit: Yikes!  Seen that in print makes me kind of nervous!

I’m in Northern VA and the metro DC prices are high too. It was $450 for me to do hair and makeup (that includes the trial). For everyone else it’s $85 for makeup or hair ($170 for to do both).

I spent $125 on my hair and $85 on my makeup. BM’s were $85 for updo and $75 for makeup I think. I am in NJ.

That’s probably right…. I’m getting married in MI, and for our 6 person bridal party it will be between $700-800.  I would think prices in any big city would definitely be higher
