Hair and make-up: last minute budget buster

Hair and make-up is a big expense for us. We have two brides, and our reception is three days after our wedding and in a different city, so the cost automatically gets quadrupled. I thought we were doing really well, having found a Boston person who would do hair and make-up for the two of us for $100, and a DC person who would do it (plus a free trial) for the two of us for $120.

However, I just learned that our Boston person (whom I booked back in April) no-showed TWICE on another bride. So now I'm trying to find a replacement, only a month before our wedding. And the lowest price I've found so far for the two of us would be $240--more than twice the original amount.

So now I'm trying to figure out whether to stick with our original person and just give her lots of reminders, or have a greatly increased cost with someone else. NOT what I wanted to be doing at this stage!

Follow-up:  The original person showed up, and did a great job!

Who did you use? I'm looking for a hair stylist and makeup artist.

We used Jen.  I never even learned her last name, but she was great--did a wonderful job on both of us and was a very sweet person besides.  If you want to talk to her, her phone number is 781-325-5934 and her e-mail is rizjs@aol.com.
