BM Hair Pricing

I'm trying to figure out the average rate for bridemaid hair on a Saturday (when most salons are open) to have bridesmaids get their hair done not at a salon.  The prices I've been quoted are higher than I had expected.  I'm looking for suggestions on what is usually considered reasonable.

TIA!

    What did the BMs tell you that they could afford when they said that they wanted their hair done?

    Or are you requiring it to be professionally done?

    No, I haven't discussed pricing with them. They all said "within reason" and didn't give me an exact amount.  I asked everyone who wanted to get their hair done, and all but 1 plans to get their hair done.  I don't want to make anyone have to get it done, but I'm very glad they all want to.  I'm just trying to be fair to them on price, because that's what I'd want if I were the BM.

    I'm getting married in Orange County, NY, and the stylist is coming to me. With those caveats, I was told BM hair would be "$85 and up." Which is, of course, a little vague for my liking... but it seems like it'll be somewhere betwen $85 and $100, if they choose to get it done.

    It can range anywhere from $50 - $100.  It depends on the salon, number of bridesmaids, if you are also getting it done, time of day.  What prices have you been getting?

    ETA: and sometimes it will also depend on the what they are doing to it.  A simple blow out or curls/straightening and updo.

    Mine are $75 for an up-do and $90 for half up, half down

    Most of my girls ended up paying $50 I think.  We went to a salon and they all used a junior stylist.  That's what they were supposed to pay at least. I didn't ask what they were charged the day of.

    My BMs were $75. My sister's might have been more b/c she got extensions put in.

    Thanks!  My BM told me she thought anything under $70 was reasonable.  However, the average I'm being told is $80-$100 depending on what they want done (updo or curls).  This is for not at a salon.

    I was quoted $65-85 but my girls are getting their hair done where they want and they don't seem to have a problem with whatever they have to pay.

    I see, just checking.

    I think my salon quoted me around $80 for the girls.

    ffbride - is that price for someone who is coming to you?  If so, can you let me know who you are using?

    Sorry, No.  I missed that part of your post.  We are going to the salon. Its 1 block from my moms house. 

    I was in 2 weddings last year and it was $75 each so the lower end prices you are getting dont seem entirely unreasonable.
