Wedding Hair and Makeup Cost: Sachiko Hair and Makeup

If I had to pick one hair and makeup artist that I think every Asian bride in NYC wants, it has to be Sachiko Yanase of Sachiko Hair and Makeup. I guess it’s not surprising given her incredibly low prices compared to her peers. At the same time, her work quality is amongst the best. Basically, the only negative comment to make about Sachiko Hair and Makeup is that she is always booked! If you are considering Sachiko for your wedding day and she is available, I would book her ASAP.   Wedding Hair and Makeup Artist: Sachiko Hair and Makeup Date Price Quoted: January 2013 Wedding Date Quoted For: July 2013 (Saturday) Price Assumptions: Includes airbrush application for bride and 4 bridesmaids Assistant: Yes Airbrush Application: Yes Estimated Preparation Time: Not specified but up to 10 hours of service included Package Fee: $1,000 Trial Fee: $100 Engagement Shoot Fee: $100 (estimated) Travel Fee: ~$50 Tax: 0% Gratuity: 0% Total Wedding Hair and Makeup Cost: $1,250   The Main...

Wedding Hair and Makeup Cost: Sissi Chan

If you search Wedding Wire for hair and makeup artists in the NYC area and sort by average reviews, Sissi Chan is the #1 result with a perfect 5 stars in 25 reviews. She doesn’t offer any group or package rates since she works alone without an assistant, but her prices are very straight forward. As a result, Sissi Chan might be the perfect fit for your wedding if you have a smaller bridal party.   Wedding Hair and Makeup Artist: Sissi Chan Date Price Quoted: February 2013 Wedding Date Quoted For: July 2013 (Saturday) Price Assumptions: Includes airbrush application for bride and 4 bridesmaids Assistant: No Airbrush Application: Yes Estimated Preparation Time: ~2 hours for bride, 1.5 hours per bridesmaid Package Fee: $1,350 Trial Fee: $175 Engagement Shoot Fee: $175 (estimated) Travel Fee: $0 Tax: 0% Gratuity: 0% Total Wedding Hair and Makeup Cost: $1,700   The Main Point The first thought that popped into my head when I looked at Sissi Chan’s prices was that it reminded me a...

Wedding Hair and Makeup Cost: Ai Sakai #2

In the previous post, I talked about the prices for having Ai Sakai service your hair and makeup for a wedding in the summer. And while wedding venues often offer discounts for off-peak season, you won’t see that happen as often for photographers, videographers, and hair and makeup artists. so I found it really interesting that Ai Sakai does offer an off-peak season rate. Here is what the cost breakdown looks like:   Wedding Hair and Makeup Artist: Ai Sakai Date Price Quoted: February 2013 Wedding Date Quoted For: Off-peak season (January to March, November to December) Price Assumptions: Includes airbrush application for bride and 4 bridesmaids Assistant: No Airbrush Application: Yes Estimated Preparation Time: ~2 hours for bride, 1.5 hours per bridesmaid Package Fee: $1,010 Trial Fee: $180 Engagement Shoot Fee: $200 Travel Fee: ~$75 Tax: 8.875% Gratuity: 20% Total Wedding Hair and Makeup Cost: $1,914   The Main Point The final cost is $65 less than the normal rate since the package fee is $50 less, and you...

Wedding Hair and Makeup Cost: Ai Sakai

Ai Sakai may be a hair specialist, but she does some great makeup work as well. Located down on Clinton St., you could put your name down for a table at the Clinton Street Bakery, run over to Ai Sakai to get your hair and makeup done for the engagement shoot, then still make it back in time for some world-famous pancakes :). Ok, maybe not, but the idea is nice. Anyways, here is what the cost breakdown looks like for Ai Sakai:   Wedding Hair and Makeup Artist: Ai Sakai Date Price Quoted: February 2013 Wedding Date Quoted For: July 2013 (Saturday) Price Assumptions: Includes airbrush application for bride and 4 bridesmaids Assistant: No Airbrush Application: Yes Estimated Preparation Time: ~2 hours for bride, 1.5 hours per bridesmaid Package Fee: $1,060 Trial Fee: $180 Engagement Shoot Fee: $200 Travel Fee: ~$75 Tax: 8.875% Gratuity: 20% Total Wedding Hair and Makeup Cost: $1,979   The Main Point Like Reiko Utsugi, Ai Sakai was easy to work with over email and also...

Wedding Hair and Makeup Cost: Reiko Utsugi

Many great wedding hair and makeup artists operate in New York City, but finding one that specializes in Asian features is not always an easy task. And while a lot of the hair and makeup artists I discuss do specialize in Asian features, they do a fantastic job on non-Asians as well! Reiko Utsugi is one such example, and here is what the cost breakdown looks like for her:   Wedding Hair and Makeup Artist: Reiko Utsugi Date Price Quoted: February 2013 Wedding Date Quoted For: July 2013 (Saturday) Price Assumptions: Includes airbrush application for bride and 4 bridesmaids Assistant: Yes (2 artists total, one of them being Reiko Utsugi) Airbrush Application: Yes Estimated Preparation Time: ~4 hours for everyone Package Fee: $1,100 Trial Fee: $120 Engagement Shoot Fee: $120 Travel Fee: $0 Tax: 0% Gratuity: 20% Total Wedding Hair and Makeup Cost: $1,608   The Main Point Reiko Utsugi receives great reviews on all the major wedding websites and was personally recommended by another super popular artist who was all booked up for the dates...
