Wedding hair styles are available for the bride, bridesmaids, flower girls and family. Wedding hair stylists work with all lengths of hair, from pixie-short to waist-long. Common hair style requests for weddings include half-up-half-down, updo with loose curls, down and straight, down and curly, sleek updo, braids and side curls. Many people request hair accessories such as a tiara, veil, flowers or accent clips. Several factors affect the cost of bridal hair services.
In-demand hair stylists may charge a premium for their services, especially in cities or metropolitan areas where the cost of living is higher than average.
Number of people
The number of people receiving hair styling services will affect the overall cost but may not reduce the cost per service for wedding hair. Stylists may charge an additional fee for wedding day hair services for large groups if an assistant is necessary.
Typically, hair services for the bride cost more than other members of the bridal party. Hair styling for flower girls generally costs the least. Here are some examples of wedding hair pricing:
- Celebrity Army: $30
Often clients request a trial run for wedding hair styles. Hair trial costs are lower than day-of wedding hair, but pricing still accounts for the time, skill and effort of the stylist. Here are a couple examples of wedding hair trial fees for brides:
Day of the week
Some stylists may offer discounted prices for weekday weddings. Many stylists are in high demand on weekends, especially during wedding season.
Many hair stylists also offer bridal makeup services. By bundling hair and makeup, customers can save money. For example, Knots for Me charges $100 for wedding hair styling, $85–$125 for wedding makeup, or $150 for wedding hair and makeup together.
- Calculate travel into your wedding hair budget. Many stylists charge a travel fee or a mileage rate to account for the time and expense of travel. Ashley Sedmak Hair and Makeup offers hair styling in the salon, but if one of their stylists travel to you, there is a 57 cent travel fee per mile.
