I'm having trouble deciding what to do about my hair and makeup. I've had a good haircut at B'yond Style on New Scotland Ave. in Albany, and I like the looks of the updos on their website. I've been quoted with a price of $240 for hair and makeup, including a trial for each. It's about $100 for bridesmaids' hair and makeup, no trial included. This seems high to me, but maybe about normal for the area. As an added bonus, this salon isn't too far from where I live.
Since the wedding is at the Appel Inn in Altamont, there's also a few options that are on the way and/or closer to the actual venue. Does anyone have any experience with Runi Salon in Westmere Plaza or Spa Li Ve, right across the street?
I do not like Jean Paul and won't use them for my wedding day, but any other raves or warnings about hair and makeup near the Albany/Guilderland area? I'd like to stay around or under $250 total.
