How much are you paying for hair and makeup on the day?

I have been looking around and so far the prices are around £200 to £300. This is for them to come to me on the day. How much are you paying?

    i paying £200 for hair and £350 for makeup. its a bit expensive but its worth it on the day! image
  • I think I'm paying £90 for the hair and makeup trial and then £200 for both on the day. It's not cheap, but then it's the only real time when I am likely to be able to justify getting it done professionally and I'm saving like anything to afford it image
  • Mine is £150 for both hair and make up

    For the day x

    I will be doing my own make up but the hair is costing £150 and that's for my trial and me and 4 BM's on the day.
  • Well thats all making me feel better! Just booked for my hair and makeup today, costing £300 including trials. I'm going to pay for my bridesmaid's hair - is it acceptable to expect her to pay for makeup herself if she wants it?
  • By the way, 2July11Bride and MrsFaulkytobe, it looks like you got a bargain!

    £0 for hair as 2 of my best friends are coming to do mine and my bridesmaids and I'm paying £60 for my make-up including the trial. Bargain! image
  • I'm having hair and makeup for me (with full trial), my 4 maids, my mum and my mother-in-law (no trials)... Came in at £540 for the 7 of us... Was surprised it was so expensive but it's 2 people and pretty much a full day's work so I guess it's not too bad..

  • I'm paying £100 plus travel costs for make up for myself and 2 BMs and I think £80 for hair - will probably include some faffing with my mum's 'hatinator' too! It would have been £20 for me and £10 each for BMs to have it done in the salon, but I think it will be easier to have the lady (mum's hairdresser) come to the house.

    I was going to try and save some money by doing my own makeup, but the lady in SpaceNK made me look so good I booked her on the spot! image

    Re asking BMs to pay for make up, I think it's fair enough. At the moment I feel like treating mine, but might change my mind of cash gets a bit tight...

    My hair trial is £60, £50 on the day

    Maids £40 trial each, £30 on the day

    Mum's hair £20 on the day

    My make up free for trial at Bobbi Brown counter and the make up artist is freelance £150 on the day for me and £60 for mum.

    So all hair inc trial £270

    All make up (although mum's paying to have hers done) £210

    I paid £70 for my trial and am paying £200 for my hair and makeup on the day. Bridesmaids and my mum are priced depending on what they want done - I think they all want hair done which is £40, or hair and makeup together is £70. This seemed to be a pretty standard price range for all the makeup artists I looked at.
  • I'm paying £188 for hair, makeup and nails on the day with trials for hair and makeup included. Thats going to the salon.

    Then makeup for bridesmaid and mum is £80 for trail and on the day, Hair for them is just price of a normal finish, so about £30 I think but not sure.
  • I'm paying £170 for hair ... this is for me, 2 adult maids and 2 child maids - on the day, trial and travel costs.

    Paying £195 for makeup ... for myself and two adult maids - on the day, trial and travel. x

    £200, including hair and make-up on the day plus a trial for both. She's coming to me for the trial and on the wedding day itself. Can't wait for my trial! image

    Only got my hair sorted so far but it will be £20 per trial and per bridesmaid on the day and £40 for me on the day. Proper bargain, but they are extermely talented too, so I know it will look good.

    Don't want to spend too much on makep up - toying with the idea of getting lash extensions and then doing it myself. Not sure image
