Hair and makeup costs

What are you girls paying for hair and makeup on the wedding day? I'm getting quotes anywhere from $150-$275 so I wanted to see what the norm is. In addition, are you paying extra for things like travel, hair extensions, airbrush makeup? Here are some costs that I was wondering if they are what I should expect to pay.

$150 hair and makeup
$30 travel to Miami
$20 airbrush makeup
$20 fake eyelashes

Thanks in advance! :)

    My hair and makeup is 200. I am in Miami so no travel costs and includes fake eyelashes. I am not doing air brushing.

    For all that your being charged that seems about right. I'm getting charged $250 for me on my wedding day. That includes hair and airbrush make up. She also was going to put eyelashes on me, but I didn't like the way that they felt. I'm also paying for my 2 BM's and 2 Moms. So for me and the 4 of them I'm paying $800. Plus she charges a 20% fee on top of the $800 the fee covers travel, tip and cost to pay her assistants. So I'd say about $200-$250 is the norm.

    I agree with Christina. I think the norm is 200-250

    Mine is running $200-300 since I might have her stay through the ceremony to do touch ups.  At first I was shocked at how expensive wedding makeup/hair is but then my friend made a good point that I'm paying a ton for photography so I might as well invest in a good MUA to look amazing in pics.

    If I remember right my MUA is charging me $50 or $75? and i have yet to pick someone to do my hair.  I'm assuming that will be more like 150 - but I honestly just made that number up in my head.

    I am paying for myself, $100 for make up alone with fake eyelashes; I still pend my hair. No airbrush.

    My girls are being charged $60 for make up with eyelashes, no hair.

    And no travel costs.

    I've gotten several quotes around that price but have also found some less expensive ones that are just as good.

    Make up $40 & Hair $75

    Nice! Who are you going with?? How long is your hair? I'm not doing makeup- I do my own makeup for important days well but do need hair help. Most places I've asked start around $85 for a simple style. I'd say your quotes are the norm!

    Faith, Makeup by Claud. She's really good & so nice. She takes the time to really match your skin color & see what you like & what would compliment you.
    Art of Hair by Claudia. Now she normally charges more for hair. She's giving me a deal because she's my co-worker. Either way, she's worth the price for the hair she does.

    There is another lady I talked to, Alcira & she charges $75. I met with her in person & I like her ideas & style. The thing is that I love Claudia's work. I've yet to see one thing I don't like about her work. No matter what I really wanted her to do my hair.
