Yes and no. Established places such as MAC and/or shu uemura have standardised packages, where as individual contractors have the freedom to quote however much they like.

My preferred H&MUA is a bit cheaper than your $190 quote. If there is hair involved, the price is always more than makeup alone.

Always do a trial months in advance. You may find that you'll go through a few before you find the right one.

All the best!

Its a little more than standard from what I have come across, but still within average for both hair and makeup

I only had make up (one of my bridesmaids is a hairdresser) and the make up alone was $100.

I paid $80 per BM for hair and another $80 per BM for make-up, so that was $160 per girl.

I'm paying up to $100 each for hair (mine is that price - hoping the bm's are less as their hair is a lot shorter and more manageable!) and $70 for makeup each. Most of the artists in the area charge similar prices...

I'm getting airbrushed makeup and it's $90, but it would be cheaper if I was getting normal/conventional application. Most of my quotes were around that price.
I'm getting my hair done by someone else and its going to cost about $110

I think that it is a little steep. I got quoted $90 per person for MAC and you get amount back in products.

I ended up going with a make up artist that uses mac she is costing $80 per person and that includes coming to our hotel.
Hair is costing me $120 for me and $80 for the brides maids and $40 for MOB

I hope that this helps

Most of the quotes I got were around $150pp to come out to you, slightly cheaper if you went to a salon/beauty place.

I am getting mine done for $100pp ($50 hair, $50 make-up) to my house, but it is cheaper because I have such a small bridal party and only 1 lady is needing to come out. If she had to have an assistant, it'd be more expensive.

I'm paying $30 each for makeup (mates rates though as a friend is doing it) and $90 each for hair so $120 all up for each of us.

That's about normal, I'd say. Mine are $100 for make-up and $90 for hair, so the same as yours. I'm paying for my BMs too, so I know how you feel. 8O

MOB and MOG are slightly cheaper at $120 each.

From my little bit of research...that's just a bit over average but probably because they are well-established.

I'm paying $200 for me, $180 each for my 3 girls and $170 for my mum

Mine was $170 pp and they came out to the house one extra charge of $40. Air brushed make up would have been slightly more expensive, but at my trial I took in pictures of all the BMs and she judged by that and by my skin whether or not she thought it would be worth doing it or not, of which she said it wasn't necessary.

I'm also paying a similar price. $69 for hair and $90 + false lashes for makeup + trials

Ahhh sounds like so much money :(

Mine is $170 for bride, $160 for bridesmaids and $160 for Mother of the Bride

I thought that was reasonable for a mobile service and it came in under budget

If I went to get hair up at my hairdresser it would be $60-80 and makeup at MAC (which I love) is $95 - so its same same
