Has anyone booked their makeup artist / hair stylist ? Or anyone whose had their wedding what did you pay?
My sister is also getting married and she just booked a girl who does both and she said with a discount that it’d be about $100 per person. She’s doing it on her own, it’s not with a business. To me that’s outragious, specially since I have my own wedding to pay for and spent a lot of money on my Bridesmaid or Best Man dress.
I understand that different states/countries have different cost of living… but idk it was a shock to me. Maybe my expectations were low… I was thinking about 50-70 dollars.

I paid $260 for my wedding day hair / makeup which included travel to the location of my choice on my wedding day and a hair/make up trial Before hand. On the day of it was $65 each for bm hair only $40 each for MOG (short hair both) and flower girl which is all competitively priced in my area. Think of all your other wedding costs like photography being thousands off dollars why would hair / make up be any different? If you think it’s too much then imagine trying to do your own updo perfectly yourself, that would be too difficult for me with long thick hair that won’t curl. And it has to last all day

100 for hair AND makeup? I would love to pay that. I booked the cheapest in the area and it is costing me 125 for hair and 55 for makeup. I was in a wedding in a different part of the country in September and the makeup was also 55 (don’t know about the hair because the bride paid for it). I got a lot of quotes for hair of 175+. No way jose.

Well the cost of living is semi low were I live. My photographer was only $500 (The average is about $1000-$1200 here). I could see paying more for my bridal hair, but as a bridesmaid? Everywhere I looked yes the brides stuff was 120+ for hair and such but for Bridesmaid or Best Man it was only $60-80.

Fortunately, my FI’s SIL is doing the makeup for free. . . she works for MAC. And his cousin is doing our hair for $40 a person. It’s always good to know people in these fields.
I was in a wedding in June 2011 and we paid $25 for hair and $40 for makeup.

$100 for hair and make-up is dirt cheap. I paid $200 EACH as a bride (included unlimited trials), and my hotties were $75 each ($150 total), plus the travel fee.
