I’ve been quoted up to $175 EACH for hair and makeup.  Its no cheap business.

$80 including travel for an updo seems pretty reasonable – by "bridal" standards… (not my own).

$55 feels high if you’re travelling there and she’s not doing foundation or blush, or concealor.  Plus, that’s weird because 2 of those things create the canvas for her art.  You can go to Mac for that price, and get the whole shebang.

Hope that helps!

i am paying way more than that for hair and makeup.  and I’m driving all the way to LA from OC….I would say yuor makeup and hair is pretty reasonable if not cheap compared to most LA places I’ve researched….

In LA everything is overpriced…boo!

Those are great rates, especially if she is coming to you.

The updo does sound very reasonable.  However you may want to ask the hair person how much time she expects to spend on each updo.  My experience has been that an updo should take at least 1/2 hr per girl if not more since most of the time there is curling and lots of pinning to do.  If she quotes you 15 mins, then I would be a bit worried that she is only going to try to rush everything and only do an ok job and not be diligent in getting every hair perfect. 

Same thing for the makeup artist.  15 mins is a very short amount of time to get the eyes just right and put on eyelashes properly.  I’m sure a lot of girls will say that they do their eye makeup in 15 mins with no problems.  However, I’ve had my makeup done for various weddings by different makup artists and most of them do take their time and blend colors to make it perfectly the way I want so that takes time.  They should also allow time for some changes in case you want to change something.
