The average cost of a bridal hair and makeup trial is from £140 – £220 On average for both services. Or for just the makeup you could expect to pay upwards of £110.
The trial is important as it allows the bride to meet with the hair and makeup artist, discuss the ideas she has for her wedding day look and try out different styles and products.
It also gives the hair and makeup artist a chance to get to know the bride and understand her style, so they can create a look that is perfect for her on her big day.
The trial will usually take place around 4-8 weeks before the wedding day.
On the day of the wedding, the hair and makeup artist will come to the bride’s house or hotel room at her wedding venue to do her hair and makeup.

Bridal Party Costs
The cost of hair and makeup for the bridal party will again vary depending on a number of different factors.

This cost can be reduced though by having some of the bridal party have their hair styled only or just have their makeup done.
