oh my legs
I am having problems finding a hair/make-up person. I am looking for someone to come to my hotel (Pan Pacific in Downtown Seattle) and do hair/make-up for me (bride), SIL, mother, sister and niece. I have contacted a couple places and they either are sketchy or aren't returning calls/emails timely.

I would like them to be fairly skilled because I am clueless and need more direction. I am willing to pay 110 for non-bride hair/makeup and 360 for bride hair/make-up including trial.

Do you have any suggestions?

I've used Will from Nucleus. He's fantastic. Unfortunately, I think he may be more expensive than that (I can't remember his prices, unfortunately). But I would definitely ask! He may be able to work with your budget.

The following people are fantastic:

Tiara's on location charges a tiny bit more than what you mentioned, but is fabulous. We've worked with her on multiple weddings and an intense multi-model, multi-day fashion shoot.

Erin Skipley is also solid, but does a lot of tv/magazine work, so might be difficult to book.

Jenny Bowker, jenny@jennybowkermakeup.com. Her website is jennybowkermakeup.com.

She's a family friend, did my wedding make-up; she's great!

I used Linda Machado in 2007- http://www.salonmachado.com. Her website looks more streamlined now, but she did a really great job. I also had a migraine on the morning of my wedding, and she was incredibly understanding about doing my hair & makeup as gently as possible. It turned out really well. She traveled all the way down to Tacoma for my wedding site- she's based up in the Snohomish area.

Oh, and by "streamlined" I meant very little information! But don't let the website prevent you from contacting her. She did a really great job at a reasonable price. She runs her own hair salon out of her home, and also does wedding hair/makeup.
