Sounds about right for me Lees: I have recently been quoted $300 for a lady to come and do airbrush makeup and hair at my house, and do a trial beforehand. I’m thinking that might be inline with the prices I see – $85 for the hair each time and $65 for the makeup each time.

Damn $50 for color is awesome…in CA its like $150!  I was able to have my hair washed, blow dryed, curled and veil placed in plus my Maid/Matron of Honor for like $125, a steal out here! Needless to say we were very pleased!  Pic of my Maid/Matron of Honor and I!  But that did NOT include travel…we got our hair done at the salon, most hair dresses wanted $100 to travel to my venue on a Sunday and it was like 1/2 an hour away!  PS if your stylist uses the right products, you don’t need dirty hair to keep the style on your wedding day!

My mom is a cosmetologist in a tiny rural town in Illinois. “Updos” (or styling) are $40, but that is without washing and drying.

****TIP***** You hair will stay in place WAY better if you DO NOT wash the day of!!!! Wash the morning BEFORE for the best results.

Mom says so and she’s got 25 years of experience 😉

My hair is absolutely horrid if I leave it a day without washing it.. :S theres no way I am not washing my hair. Ive been blessed to have my hairdresser as a bridesmaid and shes agreed to do it for me, as well as the other girls. So thats exciting.

I just have to find a makeup person. Im a bit worried because ive seen what the ladies do in my town with makeup.. it makes you look orange. :S


Good luck lee!!

I’m not married yet but I remember back in highschool for prom(I had a formal half-up style) my hair cost $40 to get it styled at a Paul Mitchell school, but that was prom though.  From the other bees though it sounds like $85 isn’t too bad.

In real life I should be paying close to or over a hundred dollars to get my hair done because it’s both long and thick however, I’ll probably only pay right around $65 for it because I’ve known beautician practically all of my life.
