$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.

sweetdee89 :  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.

sweetdee89 :  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.

$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.

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.

sweetdee89 :  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.
