What is included in the price of a bridal hair and makeup package?

In general, your wedding hair and makeup cost will include your stylist’s or makeup artist’s time on your wedding day. Most hair and makeup pros charge by the hour, so the longer you need your hair stylist and makeup artist to be present during your wedding, the more you’ll pay. Also know that for hair stylists, wedding updos tend to cost more than blowouts—in fact, the average cost of a bridal updo is $100 and the average cost of a simpler blowout is $55. When it comes to makeup, airbrush makeup typically comes with a higher price tag than traditional application. The average cost of airbrush makeup is $115 while the average cost of traditional makeup is $100. Some pros include a hair or makeup trial in their bridal makeup prices or wedding hair prices, but some do charge extra.

How far in advance should I book my hair and makeup artist?

We recommend booking your wedding hair stylist and makeup artist at least three months before your wedding. Start by reading online reviews of beauty pros near your wedding location, and then reach out to a few to find out availability and pricing. You may want to interview several wedding hair stylists and makeup artists to find someone you’re comfortable with, and whose style and vision matches yours.

Are there any add-on costs for wedding hair and makeup?

Depending on your style, needs, and budget, there are many different possible add-ons to bridal makeup packages or to your wedding hair cost. A few examples:
  • Extra services: There are certain makeup techniques and styles that might add dollars to your bridal makeup cost. For example, false lashes may cost extra, as can airbrush makeup. When choosing your wedding-day makeup style, be sure to factor in these additional costs.
  • Travel: If your wedding hair and makeup pros work out of a salon, you may have to pay extra for them to travel to your wedding location. And if it’s an especially long distance, you may have to pay even more for mileage.
  • Additional people: If you’re planning on having your hair stylist or makeup artist also provide services to your bridesmaids, mom, etc., you’ll have to pay more. Your hair stylist or makeup artist may choose to bring an assistant to help speed things along on your wedding day—another add-on to your wedding makeup cost or wedding hair cost.
  • Additional hours/touch-ups: Want your hair stylist or makeup artist to be on hand at different times throughout your wedding day to provide touch-ups or even a new ‘do for your reception? The more time you have your beauty pros on hand, the more you’ll pay for your wedding hair and wedding makeup prices.
  • Trial: As mentioned, many wedding hair stylists and makeup artists charge extra for a trial run.
  • Tips: Many couples forget to factor tips into their wedding-day budget. We recommend tipping your hair stylist and makeup artist as though it was a regular appointment—15 to 20 percent of the total cost for each professional.

What are wedding hair and makeup trials? And how much do they cost?

A wedding hair and/or makeup trial allows you to meet with your hair or beauty pro a few months before your wedding, and see how exactly your hair and makeup will look on your wedding day. You can also make any tweaks or adjustments if necessary. If your hair stylist or makeup artist charges extra for a trial, the average cost is $75 per service.

How much does bridesmaid makeup cost?

It’s a good idea to have your bridesmaids’ makeup professionally done—they’ll feel more confident and look even better in photos! The average wedding makeup cost for bridesmaids is $75 per service.

Selecting Your Wedding Hair and Makeup

With so many styles out there, along with your own unique ideas, picking the perfect wedding hair and makeup is not always as simple as some might believe. Fortunately, professional hair stylists and wedding makeup artists can help you look and feel your best when tying the knot. They will also ensure that your hair and makeup stay put whether you’re posing for photos or dancing the night away.

When looking for beauty inspiration, check out our wedding hair and makeup articles. These provide a great deal of information about picking the best wedding hair stylist and wedding makeup artist. Expert stylists generally advise selecting three to five photos to work from. They also recommend that brides be open to their suggestions. After all, hair and makeup professionals know what they are doing and will be able to make you look and feel amazing on your special day.

Wedding Hairstyle Possibilities

There are a number of things to consider when looking for wedding hair inspiration. Most importantly, the type of hair you have is a key factor. People often fall in love with a hairstyle on another person who has completely different hair texture, length, density or color. If you have short hair, for example, you probably can’t arrange an extravagant up-do – although you could always consider hair extensions.

Another thing to keep in mind is the style wedding dress you’ll wear, since most brides want their hairstyle to compliment their gown. Some winning combinations include a tousled side pony paired with a sweetheart neckline or a high textured bun to enrich your halter neckline – but the possibilities are endless. Check out these bridal hair and neckline ideas.

Wedding Makeup Options

While makeup trends come and go, your wedding photos will last forever. Working with a wedding makeup artist to create a beautiful look that you’ll feel confident about for years to come is well worth the investment. When it comes to planning your makeup, you might want to meet with a wedding makeup artist early on. They can provide you with helpful health and beauty tips designed to manage your skin care in the months, weeks and days leading up to your wedding. Then, once you’ve nailed down your preferred makeup looks, you can schedule a trial run with your selected vendor. Or, go ahead and try out more than one wedding makeup artist!

Because there are now beauty apps that allow you to virtually try on makeup looks from your smartphone, you can also save time – and money – while experimenting from the comfort of home.

If you're the kind of bride who doesn't often go to the salon, doesn't have a favorite stylist or you are getting married out of town, we have plenty of resources for wedding hair and wedding makeup artists across the country. Simply enter your wedding location, scan through the results, and read reviews from real couples about their experiences.

Be sure to add your wedding hair stylist and wedding makeup artist to our Wedding Vendor Manager planning tool.
