    I read that and was like $150?!?! what a steal! for my wedding day makeup/hair it was 350 and then trial was 200 and you have to do trial before NEVER EVER EVER just get it done the day of.. it could be horrendous. so total was 550 for mine. BUT she did a fantastic job and I never trust anyone to do my makeup and hair ..I always felt like i could do a better job then them.. until I met my makeup/hair person she was SO awesome and worth every penny. maybe its geographical.. i live in socal and 500 is the norm.

    I did my makeup myself, but I wouldn’t say it cost “nothing”. No cost for service, but there was a significant cost for quality products.

    I’ve gotten crazy unrealistic hair and makeup quotes too.  The worst was $300 for my hair and an additional $300 for my makeup.  And if I want a trial, that’ll be an additional $160.  Those people are crazy.

    I’ve also seen bride makeup quotes at: $75, $85, $125, & $175.  I don’t know why there’s such drastic price differences.  At my brother’s wedding, I was supposed to pay $75 if I wanted makeup done.  And I was only a bridesmaid.

    I paid about $70 at an Aveda salon in Dallas.  I’m kind of surprised by the prices in this thread since most wedding things in Dallas are so inflated.
