How much money do embalmers at funeral homes make? And how much are the people paid who do the makeup?

Whoopie Goldberg used to do the decedent's hair before becoming an actress. They make about $300.00 per person...How about that?

Embalmers generally make about $35-45,000 per year. hairdressers make anywhere from $30-60 per head doing hair, and I have never, in all my years in funeral service, heard of a hairdresser making $300 per head working in a funeral home. As far as the make-up, we do it. We are trained in mortuary school to do the make-up, therefore most funeral homes do not hire out for this, we do it ourselves.
