Well it really depends onthe stylist and where you live im from baltimore and my price quotes went about $55- $85. If you are in this area let me know and I can give you contact info for a few

Many stylists will give you a "discount package" for the whole bridal party. At my wedding I paid for all the updos and when I have been a bridesmaid the bride always paid for our updos.

Hope that helps!

If you are forcing your girls to have a specific hairdo chosen by you then YOU pay....if you are letting them be grown up women who can decide how to do their own hair and they WANT to get it done in an updo professionally then they pay themselves.

As a gift to the bridesmaids along with their jewelry I am paying for there hairstyles. Because like you I want them to have updos. That way I figure everyone will have their hair done nice and thats one last thing I have to worry about. It definatley depends on where you go or where you are located. We are in Erie, PA and the avg is 20-30$. Also that way someone doesnt try to do it themselves either. Good luck;0

The average price will vary depending on where you are located and the stylist you select. Assuming you want all of your BM to go to the same hair stylist you may be able to negotiate a discount. Of course the price will be higher if you want the stylist to come to you and your bridal party at a hotel or home.

You can pay for your BM to get their hair done as part of a gift and as a thank you. Or you can ask them to pay for the hair styles themselves. Keep in mind if any of your BM have short hair, they (or you) will have to pay extra for extensions.
