My salon is Springfield,ma. And most of the time I incorporated the prices. What I men by that is that I make a paq. For the bride hair,makeup and trial..and it all depen on what he want. If is only makeup trial star at 20$ if they come too me if I have nto travel to there house it will be a flat rate of $30 for 1 trial. Just remember gas money is included in it. And the day of the wedding is start at 65$

Hi Ladies,
I did a search online before I enrolled. What I found was an average of $40 to do someone's make up for a day/party/prom and about $430 for the wedding. What I could not find was how many people the $430 covered. Doing an average, I would say that is about the bride plus 5 people (6 total). So probably the MOB, maid of honor, and 3 bride's maids. I spoke with a wedding planner here in Arizona and she said that was good pricing. She said it is a good idea to have all those people (mentioned earlier in the post) done by the same person to avoid "make-up malfunctions" in the bridal party. I used to do wedding photography and when just one person in the bridal party has hot pink metallic eye shadow from the lid to the brow--it can ruin the wedding photos.
I hope this is helpful.
