I just received a hair quote from my stylist and I was hoping that you might give me some basis for comparison. She's based at a salon in NYC, but to do private work she charges $350 to style a bride's hair, plus transportation. I have extremely curly/kinky hair, and to style it naturally will take her at least 2 hours to condition, style, and dry (though a lot of that time is me sitting under the dryer).
I thought that this was very high, since a cut and style at her salon is just under $100, but I'm getting married about 1.5 hours north of the city so going to the salon is not an option, and she's going to need to take the day off. Is this about standard for a stylist in this area?
Any info would be really helpful. Thank you!
