Pricing help!?

I am having a hard time finding a decent price for doing hair and makeup for me and 2 bridesmaids. So far everyone has pretty much quoted me over $350. The hairstyles are fairly simple. Is this about the going rate that everyone is paying or is it just my area I live in? Is this high, low, or average rate? Maybe just DIY the best I can if i don’t like the prices?

    Mine is $660 for me, two bridesmaids and my fmil. And that was the cheapest I could find. But I know I’m not talented enough for diy!

    I paid $150 for hair and $125 for makeup for myself. Bridesmaids was $90 for each service. So $350 for hair and makeup for 3 people sounds like a really good deal.

    That’s a really good deal. I’m spending about $150 a person for hair and makeup.

    That’s a good deal. I’m paying $180 for hair and makeup and my girls will be paying $65/service ($130 for hair and makeup).

    350 total? That’s not bad. I’m paying $165 total for mine and my bridesmaids are a little less than $100 total, I think.

    I’m actually dealing with this also and yup :/ that price sounds relatively good for both services in 3 people . Just makeup for me is 135-150 and my 5BM plus MOB and MOG will be $85 each. That’s just makeup . As for doing it yourself it could work out for you if you know you want your look to be subtle for the pictures .

    Thats a really good deal, I'm going to have to end up paying quadruple that for me and a bridesmaid but that is because of the area. If you can DIY then I would say go for it, but it could be an added stressor if things dont go right.
