    There's honestly no way to answer this. It depends on how far they have to travel (if they charge for it) and how many people are getting their hair/make up done. who is doing it? I hired the owner of the company to do my hair and make up and then just her assistants for everyone else so there was a price difference there. Just look online at people who work near you to find an idea. Most people give options to email them for a quote to get a better idea.

    We got ours for $45 per girl for hair $45 per girl for makeup. We found ours on Thumbtack and they did a great job. They traveled to us in our hotel suite and we are in San Diego.

    Lots of threads about this recently, you might be able to search some on PC (not mobile).

    I paid $400 for bridal hair, makeup, and trials of both, including lashes and airbrush. I'm going to the salon the day of, so that's including my discount. Bridal party would have been $75 each for hair/makeup, but I'm not having a BP, so yay.

    This will vary greatly based on location, experience of the MUA/hair stylist and if they have to travel. I recommend using vendor search on here and getting some quotes.

    This varies so widely based on location, the size of your bridal party, airbrush or traditional, the time of year you're getting married, the day of the week you're getting married, the time you need to be ready by, what kind of hairstyle you want and your hair type, travel requirements, etc. etc. that its impossible to give you any kind of info that might be accurate.

    I do bridal hair and makeup in the DMV area. My prices are a lot higher than what I'm paying in NC for my own wedding, where I'm getting married. The costs of living are lower, travel is easier (fewer tolls and horrible traffic issues that eat time and &dollarSmiley winking, rents are lower for businesses, etc. It just varies so much its impossible to get any accurate info from people living in entirely different parts of the country.

    Personally, no matter where you are located, you should expect a minimum of $70 per service (i.e. $70 for an updo, $70 for basic makeup application). Some areas will be much higher, but any lower than that and there is no way they are using professional products and covering supply costs, since those prices are standard nationwide.

    It definitely depends on your location and how far they are traveling to you. Mine was $60 per girl for hair and $200 for make-up (including the trial), but I am in north TX which tends to be on the cheaper side of things.

    In my area the good ones are $150 brides hair, $75 everyone else & $65 per person for make up. Travel is included in those prices.

    One of my really good friends from highschool does hair so she's doing ours for $30 each.

    When I was looking around the average cost was about 200 for bride and 80 per bridesmaid if you were within 15 miles of their salon, but take into consideration that doesn't include trials at all. So for trials they usually charge you at least another 50-100 per trial per person.
