    I paid $60 for simple curls, not sure what they’re doing to your hair for $550…must be very fancy lol.

    @SarahCF:  That’s crazy. I’m paying what I’d consider ‘top dollar’ and it’s costing me 525 USD for my hair and make-up; the hair portion is approx 275.i would NOT pay more than 300 because frankly it isn’t worth it IMPO.

    I paid $200 for hair and makeup including trial run… based on results I wish I would have paid more. I didn’t like my hair or makeup at all 🙁

    I just was so shocked how much people charged for on-site hair/makeup. My local haircut place would do it in-salon for $35 but they don’t travel. $200 was the cheapest I could find to come to us, and still wasn’t satisfied (I didn’t need anything complicated, just curled and pinned back from the face)

    @SarahCF:  $500…just for hair…?   That should include the hair, makeup AND an orgasm

    I am a black woman and our hairstyles are usually expensive.

    When I got married, I wore a curly and long lace front wig that cost less than $100. I pined it half up for my wedding.

    When we renew our vows, I will have my hair relaxed with a ponytail added for length. It won’t cost me more than $100 and that includes accessories and cost of ponytail.

    I can’t remember but I’m sure mine was between $100-150. My makeup artist was amazing, but a little on the expensive side, so I was trying to use a woman in our community who would be a bit less expensive. In the end it didn’t work out with her so I called my makeup artist about a week before the wedding and asked if she could do my hair. I didn’t have a trial, but I just wanted curls so I was happy with the way it came out. She did my hair and my sister’s hair, but I don’t remember how much she charged because it was so last minute and I didn’t do any price checks anywhere else. She charged $180 for the bridal makeup, so maybe it was around the same or a little less for the hair.

    $550 for hair???  I paid $170 for my hair trial and having it done on the day, and I thought she did a fantastic job.  I had my hair done at a salon that is closer to my home than my regular salon.  Anyways, best of luck finding a more reasonably priced hair dresser!  I would have to say I think it’s worth it to get a professional and not just a family member though, even if it means you aren’t able to get it done in your home, because you will want a hair style that will last well through-out the day.

     @Nona99:  lol 😛

    @SarahCF:  

    Uhh $550 just for your hair?!? I realize the word “wedding” inflates everything but that’s outrageous.

    The lodge we had our wedding at has a salon in-house and they did hair and makeup for me, my 5 BMs, our officiant and our flower girl, catered mimosas and lunch for everyone and the bill with tax and tip came to about $700, including my hair trial. I was pleasantly surprised. I figured it’d be closer to 1k. We went over budget for almost everything else but this!
