@MissKit:  Are you getting married locally? If so, start trying out salons. Most have websites with portfolios of their work.  Go in for a basic cut, see if you develop a rapport and then go from there.

Pricing will depend on where you live and what you want done. Are you looking at a full updo? Airbrushed makeup and adding eyelashes will cost more than basic makeup.

What I did was get one of those books from a wedding show that has vendors of all sorts. I picked the category (Beauty for example) and went to the website. If I liked the site and their work there then I emailed with a list of basic questions to get a quote: And then I filtered from there, and got trials people I liked until I booked one I loved. I ended up paying 70 per girl for makeup, 90 for me + 15 for false eyelashes and my trial at her place was $40. Hair was 70 per girl as well and 100 for me. and my trial for hair included a cut and colour for $130


I have a few questions regarding your service. 🙂

    1. Are your products suitable for girls with sensitive skin?
    2. What are your rates for makeup for 5 girls total (inc. bride), for 6, for 7 and for those + a flower girl. (The price would be different for each option I’m sure) The 6/7 option is if the MoG and MoB want to join us.
    3. How much is it for hair for those breakdowns as well?
    4. How much is a trial for Makeup/Hair?
    5. Is there an additional cost for airbrushing?

    The wedding is July 20, 2013 and the location we’d need is in [CITY]

    I used WeddingWire as I’ve had great luck when going by reviews. I also booked some vendors by word of mouth here on the Bee!
