I myself do both and most mua's I know of do basic hair styling nothing too fancy but are capable of most styles. If you want anything elaborate I would suggest an extra hair stylist as some mua's hate doing hair as they like to concentrate on just the make up. Personally I enjoy doing both.
It is down to just asking the chosen mua, if they style hair.
Some mua's will charge extra for this as its usually a lot more work, but some include the basic styles in their rates.
I supose my next question then is what are the going rates for MUA's with basic hair styles?
What it is I'm after is to offer the everyday house wife a hair & make up pampering session
and then there photo taken, with the possibility of selling them more of the photos
So I need to know what my costs would be before I can work out a price for the Mrs housewife
Hi there, Just to repeat Claire's post really. I do some hair styling. I do like to know before the shoot tho so I know what to expect and allow the time for it.
It depends on the shoot as to the charge If I am booked for a certain amount of time (eg 2 hours/ half day /full day ) then everything is included in my rate whether I'm doing make up or hair, touching up make up tweaking hair, changing make up looks , working on 1 model or 2 it doesn't matter to me, I'm just working for an amount of time. I know the kind of thing you are thinking of though, to offer basically a makeover portrait sesson all inclusive, and hopefully the client will want to buy more images on the strength that she looks amazing after the makeover. I do this type of work regularly so if you want to pm me to discuss anything then feel free. Hope it has helped
