I always bring my nice clothes to Ace Custom Tailors in Austin.  They aren’t cheap, but they do a good job.  From what I’ve heard, letting a dress out can be very time consuming/expensive, so I think it may be difficult to find someone to do it for cheap.

As far as hair is concerned, I go to Pink on South Congress.  I go to Lauren and she does a great job.  Again, not cheap, but great.  I think she charges $60 for a haircut and regular (not bridal) style.  I’ve also heard great things about Jessica at Shag, on South First.

Alexa Gavela Bridal has some amazing seamstresses — that’s where I had my dress altered and it needed A LOT of work.  I don’t think it was super expensive for what I had done but not cheap either. 

For hair I am a huge fan of Avant – there’s one on 2nd and one in Southpark meadows (and I think one up north).  They do amazing things with my hair!

I know this is an old thread, but maybe someone else could use a good seamstress.  Austin Alterations and Cleaners on Lamar is AWESOME!  Great service, great prices, fast turnaround.  I am totally going back there!
