I think pricing is relative to your location. $400 sounds too good to be true for me, but I’m in NYC. I’ve been getting quotes for $500 for hair and makeup (including trial) just for myself.

That’s not bad considering he’s traveling 2 hours to get to you. I would consider your $400 to include you, your two bridesmaids, and the gas he will have to spend driving to you. 

For comparison, I hired someone to do my make up and hair plus my six bridesmaids for $1300, she normally charges $1800 but we went to high school together.

With 2 hours of traveling, it does not seem too unreasonable. I’m paying $130 for me and $65 for each bridesmaid… but that is with no traveling fees at all. 2 hours is pretty far so that price doesn’t seem completely outrageous

That is ALOT for just three people but he is traveling two hours so im not sure. My company is very highly rated and they also do airbrush and for me and my 4 bridesmaids plus Future Mother-In-Law and Mom will be $375. 50 per person and 75 for me. all includes MAC false eyelashes and take away lip gloss

Ummm $400 for travel, airbrush for you and your girls sounds AMAZING.  Great deal IMO!
