Make up and hair

Kristen, on September 24, 2021 at 7:37 PM Posted in Planning 0 12
I’m looking for someone to do my hair and make up on my wedding day and I found someone I like. She quoted me 600. 300 for hair and 300 for make up. Does this sound about right or is this pretty expensive?

    This is really going to depend a lot on your location and how experienced/in demand your HMUA is. I am paying approximately the same total amount for my hair and make up, but my hairstylist is only charging $100 for my hair, and my make up artist is over $500 for just my makeup.

    Holy wow. I'm doing about 200 all in. But there's no travel and it's just be at a salon. Is there travel in the quote.

    Price depends on your location and the skill/expertise of the vendors.

    Browse Instagram and Google Maps or Yelp for recommendations on people to look into.

    I think that’s expensive even if it’s in a city. My hair and makeup is around $340. And bridesmaids’ are around $180 and this will be in Savannah

    Totally depends on location and even so, varies widely. Ive seen anywhere from $85/service to over $300-400.

    I think that's really expensive just for 1 person!

    It might not be for your area and the stylist you hired but I'm at about $300 for my hair and makeup, plus hair for all my bridesmaids and makeup for one bridesmaid (everyone else wanted to do their own). It's fine to splurge but if it's not in your budget, keep looking!

    Sounds about right. By the time I paid my hair & makeup artists for trials, day of services and travel, that’s what it came to.

    Sounds about right. That’s about what I will be paying too.
