Hi! I am trying to decide where to have my hair and makeup done for my April 2012 wedding. I get my hair cut at the Aveda Institute regularly, and they offer bridal hair and makeup at ridiculously fabulous prices ($40 for hair and $28 for makeup, TRIALS INCLUDED!--and yes, the trial is with the same person who will be doing your hair for the wedding). I do realize that we would have to get started a bit earlier the morning of the wedding than if the hair and makeup came to us, but I'm willing to do that for such a great price. In particular, I don't want my bridesmaids to pay out the nose for these services (regular special occasion hair is $30 and make-up application is $15).
However, I'm curious whether anyone out there used them for a wedding before? I LOVE getting my hair cut there but have never used them for something this important, nor have I gotten my makeup done there... Good or bad experiences? Would the make-up last through ceremony and pictures?
