    I am actually having someone in the Fila academy do my hair, and it is very inexpensive. What I suggest is have a trail first far enough in advance to determine whether you like it or not. The cost for me was $25, and then when I have my hair for the wedding in september it was cost me another $25, so $50 total for a trail and the day of. The girl did an excellent job on my hair and I was very happy. For my make up, I am having a friend of mine that is good with make do it for me. I am not a HUGE make up person to begin with so I am ok with this. But ask around you'd be surprised who knows who that does what, LOL. Also Facebook, post on facebook what your looking for and alot of times you can find things out that way. Good Luck!
