Beach Palace Brides - Hair & Make-Up?

Recommended Posts

My hair and makeup through him is $510 for just me.  The bridesmaids prices weren't too bad, $90 for makeup and $75 for hair.  He's one of the best, so he can charge those prices.  It's definitely high, but it depends on how important that part of the budget is to you.

what are your thoughts?

Thank for your reply:) I have had "the best" make up and hair people in my life for various events, so it is important for me to get great make up and hair, don't get me wrong;) ...however, I don't think that people should be taking advantage of brides knowing how important their wedding is to them and charge half a grand for something that can be done for waaay cheaper, especially in Mexico :S I am dissapointed with the pricing, but I am pretty sure he is going to do a great job on you for your wedding;)

I see what you mean....however I don't think he's taking advantage of brides at all, I know that the other pricing I got from others was still quite a bit of money and the quality of products they used and their portfolio didn't come close.  After meeting with Fernando in person, he is the sweetest man ever, both my mother and I feel in love with him.  Palace Resorts have the most inexpensive weddings around, so paying a little more for the hair/makeup wasn't a huge deal, for us anyway.  I had budgeted $2000 for myself and bridesmaids for hair and makeup though, so he fell under that.  Just like anything in life, there are so many different tiers of pricing.  People think Del Sol Photography is expensive, but really, I think you get what you pay for.

I am going with MVP Hair and Makeup... search for it on here... they are considerably cheaper, probably b/c they are a newer vendor.  I know most of us do a DW to save costs, so spending $1k on hair/makeup is out of the question.. then add on the day pass fee too!  MVP's Melissa can do both hair and makeup, so you only need one day pass. I dont want the dreaded prom hair, so I'm going to suck it up.
