I am assuming prices would obviously be different in your area then here in MA but this is what I paid:

Hair Trial: $40

Makeup Trial: $30 (I didn’t do this)

Hair for day of: $80+

Makeup for day of: $60+

*This is not including the tip.  For my BMs it will be slightly cheaper for them.

$95 for the hair and make up trial 

$300 for day of 

$100 per bridesmaids

 

This is considered average among the top make-up artists in town. I know there are places where you can get all of that for half the cost but usually they don’t have that great of a reputation among a lot of people.

wow, either I got a really good deal or things are much cheaper here in Pittsburgh. 

My hair will be $50 (on trial and on day of) and my makeup is $30 (but I bring my own foundation). My guess is if I had more hair/was doing a full updo it would be more expensive.

Gosh, the San Francisco Bay Area sucks in price.

Most of them cost:

Hair and Makeup Trial: $150

Day of: $300, $500

For the well known ones:  $750 -1000

Even for those who were just starting out (not as well known artists/stylists), I got charged $50 – $100

On top of all this, I tried at least 4, one did a great job but she had a Diva personality that totally intimidated me.

I think you’ll find that it totally depends on region. In NYC, I paid:

$75 for hair trial

$150 for wedding hair

$150 for bridesmaid wedding hair

$150 for makeup trial

$225 for wedding makeup

$85 for bridesmaid makeup

Waaayyyy too much money for sure, but I don’t have the energy to look for other people, and I really clicked with both my hair and makeup artists.

I’m only paying $25 for the trial and $50 for the day of because my friend is a hairdresser.  My makeup is free at Clinique.
