On-Site Hair and Makeup?

Hi ladies! So I am looking for on-site hair and makeup, and I have only been able to find two companies that do this: BridesMaid Beautiful and The Makeup Loft. My wedding is in Saline, and BMB is located in Shelby Twp, so their travel fee is kind pricey. The Makeup Loft sounds pretty good, but I was wondering if there were any other options?

I checked the sticky, and many don't say if they had hair/makeup done on site or not. Also, I thought maybe some of you might know of a company that you didn't use for your wedding (such as, if  you were ever a BM or if you considered one but didn't hire).

Sooo does anyone know of any on-site hair/makeup companies? ((other than BMB or the Makeup Loft))

TIA!

    Brides on Location is another one I looked into, but even with travel fees from Shelby Twp. to Novi, they were more than Bridesmaid Beautiful.

    I can however, give a fantastic review on BMB.  They were super friendly, and did an AMAZING job.  My make-up was still in tact the next morning and my hair lasted all night.  They did not figure in as much time as other companies so I panicked, up until they were half way done with the services.  From 11:30-just after 1, they did 1 full make-up application and 6 updos with 2 people.  They were a last minute choice for us and ended up being one of my favorite vendors.

    I didn't care for the company I used (Posh) but I absolutely loved the company my SIL used - Priss Studio in Birmingham. The owner is Jon and he is a genious with hair and makeup! His assistant Peter was wonderful - I've never felt more beautiful :) They are expensive (hair and makeup each range from $75 to $150) and they book fast. But they were absolutely worth the money. I will be using them for every event I go to.

    Sorry I'm not much help... I used BMB and loved them. I actually liked my trial better than day-of but that's because I have a hard time thinking I'm good looking so getting all dolled up the first time was a real treat. [:

    So even with BMB's travel fee of $120, they are still cheaper than the Makeup Loft. I will contact Bridal Beauty on Location to find out about their travel fee as well. As of now, I am probably leaning toward BMB, just because I have heard such good reviews about them from fellow knotties! Thanks ladies!

    I used Deux Adore, and they did my makeup & hair, and my BM makeup. They traveled to my house. Not sure what their rates are now, but BM makeup was $35, I think that included the false eyelashes, can't remember.


    Stephanie, who does the hair, works at Bianchi Salon in Royal Oak. My daughter (MOH) and I started going to her a few months before the wedding so she became familiar with us beforehand (and I could test her hair skills, LOL). Her sister Jenn does the makeup.

    Blog here: http://deuxadore.blogspot.com/ . They also have a Facebook page. They aren't great about updating their pages however.

    If they could make an "old bag" like me look good, I think they are great!

    Jamie Clemons does just makeup, but she is amazing and so fun to work with!  I hired her for my October wedding and she made all of us look so stunning.  Definitely check out her website!  http://www.wix.com/onsitebeauty/jclemons
