My brother’s wedding is coming in May and I am a bridesmaid in the wedding. My future SIL and us bridesmaids are not much into hair and makeup so we definitley need someone to do them for us for the day. However, none of us are really experienced in prices for weddings. We are trying to see what an actual price range is.
What she has found so far is makeup would be $65 per person (someone we work with) and hair right now is set at $75 plus 20% gratuity. So the two together without gratuity at this time is $140. Is this a normal range?
For reference, not sure if needed, we are in the midwest in the US 🙂
Thanks for your help bees!

$140 per person for both hair and makeup seems like a good deal/very reasonable to me. I’m paying more than that for my bridal hair and makeup.

I am a bride and looked into makeup for my bridesmaids, I was quoted anywhere from $45-75 for bridesmaid hair and about the same for makeup as well. I would expect to spend up to $150.

I think I’m spending $150/p for bridesmaids hair and make up, as well as MOB. I’m paying for theirs though, I wouldn’t ask them to pay.

Mine was $200/each for bridesmaids hair & makeup in a big southern city, I think the price for them was a bit discounted because it was part of my HMU package. I paid for them as well. So $140 sounds quite reasonable to me.

Forgot to add – we are paying for our own and she is just paying for the travel fee if there is one.
So seems the $140 so far is fairly reasonable.

$140 for both sounds about right.

Sounds good to me.
I paid $210 per person for my girls and our moms. Mine was $310. My MUA has a deal where the more people you add, the less you pay…we had 7 people at that price.

Mine for airbrush makeup and hair was $540 and $250 for each bridesmaid (the Washington DC area)

I’m in the Midwest and my makeup is $50 for non-airbrush and includes false lashes and Hair is $60 plus a travel fee plus gratuity. I’d expect anything from $100-160 depending on what you want. Does the makeup include lashes, airbrush, is there a diff fee for just hair styling vs. updo. The price seems reasonable just ask these questions so you know ahead of time what that gets you.

Seems fair to me, I don’t remember my exact breakdown but I paid around $1200 for hair and make up for 9. Lashes for 5, and two had short hair so no updos for them.

Canada here – It was $160 for hair and makeup for bridesmaids (a bit more for me as the bride) I paid $40 off of every girl’s hair & makeup so it cost them each 120$ so 60 for hair and 60 for makeup which I think is reasonable.

The makeup is lashes and airbrush included. She ended up finding a salon in the town she’s getting married in so no travel fee and it comes to $55 for the hair and the makeup was already set and is $65 so $120 per person 😉
I never realized hair and makeup was so much for an event! Ha. I typically only wear mascara and maybe a smidge of eye shadow if it’s an event.
Thanks all for your input!

Sounds normal. I was quoted upwards of $180 for both if someone were to come to me. If I went to the salon (I didn’t specify it’s for bridal), they mentioned $70-$100.
ETA – I had the same reaction when I first heard about the prices 😄 Many of my classmates got it done for graduation and that was the first I heard of it happening in a non-bridal instance.

Yeah that’s very reasonable.
