I just got off the phone with my salon….make-up is $45 and hair starts @ $55 plus a travelling fee of $20 (but that goes up the less people we have..)

I think it depends on the skill level of the stylist.  My stylist was really expensive but simply amazing and I was fine paying for him.  But I’ve had my makeup and hair done before for other weddings where even $65 was way more than what they were worth.

I paid $450 for on location hair with my own clip in extensions, airbrush makeup with false eye lashes.  And he was worth every penny.

Also, I’ve never heard of loaner extensions. I would not want to wear hair worn by other people.  That sounds really gross.

I paid $75 for my makeup which was done by an independent makeup artist at the place that did my hair.  I paid $160 for my hair at the salon.  That included the trial but not a tip.  One thing it didn’t include was washing and drying my hair.  They charged me an extra $20 for that.  I guess it’s not standard to include that which, never having done this before, I didn’t realize!  Overall it was worth it but after seeing what other people paid I was a little upset with how much my hair cost.

I own my own make up and hair business for brides.

I normally charge $200 for the bride for hair and make up and $150 a bridesmaid. But I also offer packages for larger bridal parties. I think it mostly depends on your location in the country and whether its onsite or not as well.

I am paying $450 total for on location hair (with my own extensions) and makeup.  My stylists are the highest level at the salon.  Bridesmaids are $85 for each service.

On location hair and make-up were $200 each (or $400 total) for me, which included unlimited trials. The hair trial we nailed the first time out, but I had 4 make-up trials to find a primer-foundation-setting powder/spray combination that worked for my sensitive skin. And I would pay that $$ all over again to look and feel that stunning. I also paid $85 per service (or $170 per person) for my ladies (airbrush make-up and whatever hair style they wanted). I’d do it again in a heartbeat because they all radiated such beauty and confidence. I loved seeing them looking so happy with their look. Oh, and there was a flat $60 travel fee.

I’m paying $210 for my hair and make-up including the trial. My bridal party would be $85 for hair and $60 for makeup and I’d need to pay $50 per stylist that would be needed, which they said would be 3 for the amount of people I have and I’m in Savannah, GA.
