on-site hair and makeup - need recommendations


I'm planning my wedding from out of town, and I'm having a hard time finding someone to come to our hotel (in Oak Brook) to do hair and makeup.  I'd like for all of my bridesmaids to have their hair done (there are 6) and then makeup for just me.  I have heard great things about Cynthia Sally, but they will only come and do makeup service if there are 4+ people.  I am still considering having my bridesmaids' makeup done, but it is just so expensive and I would not ask them to pay for it themselves.

Any recommendations for both hair and makeup on-site?

    I'm working with Maris from Cynthia Sally and she's amazing for my make-up as well as my bridesmaids. I agree that it's pretty pricey, but I asked my girls to buy their dresses and shoes, so I'm treating them to a little day of beauty for my wedding.  :)

    For hair, I'm working with Debbie at London's Page.  She's coming to our hotel in Winnetka and she's super nice and easy to work with.  I highly recommend her!  Tell her Sarah sent you!

    Good luck!  :)

    I am using Jaycie Kurfess, Make up by Jaycie.  She is amazing!  I had my trial last weekend, and I know I will look fabulous as a result!  She will travel anywhere in the Chicago area too!

    Antonette did my wedding and my bridal party. God she is talented! I actually found her in a chicago bridal magazine. My Goddaughter recently used her too  for her quinceanera and her hair and makeup were AMAZING! I would highly refer her any day. SHe's punctual and very professional and experienced. You can see her work on her website.

    I am using Tamara Makeup + Hair Artistry...Tamara for makeup and Mel for hair.  I went off a few recommendations here.  I was very pleased with my trial.

    I used Deb Jones from Deux Salon in Elmhurst. She came to my mom's house and did my hair and make-up. It was $125 total, including false eye lashes. My make-up stayed ALL NIGHT through all the dancing and my hair still looked good the next morning! My friend also used her for her wedding a few weeks ago and even in the heat, her makeup and hair stayed put. She also did BM's hair, which was $65. She is awesome and very reasonable.
