Did she ask for payment or is she assuming you will pay her?  Did she offer her services as a gift??  

Its hard to say what you should pay her.  Pro prices vary depending on area (big city is always more $$), what services you are getting done (airbrush, lashes, hair extensions etc…), and if they are traveling to your location or if its in a salon.  

Maybe some how find out what she is expecting…… if she is “gifting” her services to you, then you might just want to give her a generous tip….(maybe $50?)

I will be paying about $200 for my hair and makeup. However the ladies that we hired are pretty exclusive when it comes to bridal hair and makeup so they know what they are doing. haha

$100???  That would be a decent price for both hair and makeup for a non pro (who has had training though)….

I say depends on how the trial run goes! If you love her work you may want to pay her more!

My daughter just had her trial and the stylist came to her house. She charged $50. which she said she’ll deduct the day of the wedding, however,the outcome was horrible and she’s doing another one where its costing an additional $25…..she’s charging $125. for the hair just for the bride and $75. for everybody else. She’s traveling an hour to do so.

The makeup person is charging bridal party members $50. each for her services,and $125. for the bride.

I’d like to know why the charges are so much higher for the bride. She has hair & a face like the rest of us! It just annoys me. Undecided

See how the run goes you dont want to overpay for something you dont like…. It can start from 50-75 for a pro just for make up and hair any where from 30 to 175…now if she is not a pro cut it in half but you really need to see her work first.

I got a price quote from a girl who does hair and make up $99 “family discount”. Man everyone asking to profit off my wedding everywhere I go…..

I don’t know how much she expects for the trial run.

Do you bees think that’s expensive $99 for hair and make up?

how much a Pro gets paid depends heavily on the region ~ Big Cities (NYC, SF, LA) are very $$$$$!

and small towns will have one, $. 

What you can do is do some price researching in your area, and then evaluate your friends’ work (portfolio) against the pros in your area.  If she is just as good, then you pay her the pro rates~ if she doesn’t measure up, then she should be charging you less.

I’m paying $100 for hair and make-up and they’re both pros. Has she mentioned payment? I like the idea of the $50 tip…

lilyfaith That’s good to know that $99 isn’t expensive. Well, I will save my money up and maybe I will be able to afford her.
