    @seAprilbride:  It seems very reasonable, if not very inexpensive.  In my area, makeup applications can be up to $65 or $70 and bridal updos typically start around $65 and go up from there.

    This sounds dirt cheap to me actually. Where are you from? I’ve never gotten a haircut under $50 in my life and my wedding hair and makeup were each over $100…I’d be afraid of a $30 hairstyle it sounds so cheap to me here on the east coast! lol

    I was charged like $80 for my consultation and my makeup was 100 something! I think…  Maybe it was $75 and I’m exaggerating. Either way, I went with someone super high end. The prices they are quoting you sound really cheap. If you’re nervous about the updo cost why don’t you call them or go in and tell them that you are budgeting and you really need to know how much an updo is going to be. You can show them a picture or explain the style, but that you don’t feel comfortable using them without knowing final prices for things. Then maybe get it in writing.

    Haha WHAT?  We’re looking at $75+ for hair and $75+ for makeup for BMs.  Bridal is $100+ for each.

    If it’s so easy and quick to do, do it yourself.

    $30/ $35 for makeup? OMG I would die for something that cheap. The average for upstate NY is about $100 for hair $80 for makeup. The people who travel to you are usually over $200.

    I am paying $75 for a trial and $80 for the day of, and that’s one of the cheapest places around.

    I do think you need to make your place nail down more of a price. But it sounds prety cheap to me.

    I know its usually regional….. but that sounds like a steal to me. I know where I am getting married I will be looking at between 100-180 for hair and makeup just for myself. Though, depending on how many of us go that route I hear that they do usually give discounts. At that price though, I can see why they don’t. Most makeup counters charge about the same for makeup so I don’t think they are overcharging. Them not telling you about updo’s is a bit odd, maybe you can show them a picture of what you are thinking of and then they can give you an idea?

    My updo was $50, but my hairdresser usually charges $75.  The discount was her gift to me!  Smile
