Only if I was the spitting image of Kate Beckinsdale when she was done.

I live in an expensive area as well, and that quote is ridonculous.

That seems a bit high to me.  For myself and five bridesmaids for hair I am paying less than $400 (a hair stylist friend gave me a great deal).  I have another lady for makeup and that’s $140 (airbrush) for me, and $50 for any Bridesmaid or Best Man who wants to do it.  These prices all include a trial.  Though, I am in Ohio and things out here aren’t as expensive.. but almost $2000?  That seems steep!

Not a chance. I think for us it was about $200 each for both hair/MU (me plus 6 bridesmaids), and they did my mom and Mother-In-Law for free. So $1400 total (that’s a big number now that I look at it), two hair stylists, two MUAs, all professionals who travelled an hour outside of the city to set up on site for us at the hotel. Plus gratuities that I added in. $1700 seems high for someone who’s a non-pro friend of a friend and not offering make up at that price as well.
