$290 for bridal hair and makeup which includes the trial. The bridal party is $65 for hair and $45 for makeup, goes down $10 if over 5 people in the bridal party. My Maid/Matron of Honor thought the cost for bridal hair and makeup was too much. What say you, bees?

Depends where you live. I paid 160 for my day of hair and trial, plus 80 for makeup. Don’t forget tip is on top of that too. I live just outside Toronto, but I know near major cities the prices go up.

I wouldn’t pay it, but from what I’ve seen that’s pretty normal.

That’s fairly cheap from what I’ve seen.

That’s at least what I paid for bridal hair, bridal makeup, and a hair trial, all at a salon, not on location, plus tip. It depends on where you live and the quality of the professional. I’d have had to pay the same people 2.5 times as much to come to me.

That’s not crazy. I paid around that for just make up, including a trial. My Bridesmaid or Best Man hair and makeup was $65 for each but I let them decide if they wanted to do that or not.

It’s pretty average for bridesmaid hair and makeup. I think the bridal consultation, even with the trial is a little high. Are they charging travel fees on top of that or is it inclusive?

Ok, thanks. Thats good to hear. She comes to you which is what I was trying to explain to my Maid/Matron of Honor. She is a quality professional, I’ve seen her work. Not to mention she has done my hair for years so we have a relationship and I would be comfortable with her.

That’s an awful lot (over twice what I’m paying), BUT if she’s coming to you and you like/know/trust her, then I’m sure that’s in line with what you’d expect to pay. Obviously it depends on your area, though!

If you think yours is outrageous, here is a list of mine…
$60 travel fee to come to my location
$125 Trial Hair
$ 85 Trial Make up
$125 day of wedding hair
$100 Day of wedding Makeup
For a total of $495 and then on top of that there is a 20% gratuity on top of it all! And then tax for a real total of over $600! Yikes!

My hair and make up is going to be $168 and the trial would have been the same, so I decided to not do the trial.
