I found the people that I want to do my hair and makeup on the big day, and they are kind of pricey but do BEAUTIFUL work. I would love if my bridesmaids joined me in getting their hair and makeup done, but after seeing the cost of hair/makeup pp ($380 for me including trial and touch up kit, and 135 for everyone else the day of) I know that I can’t front the cost for my 6 bridesmaids- that’s like $1.5k after gratuity!!!
Anyway, I was wondering how I should do this. I could just book services for myself and let everyone know that they can choose to do their own or go somewhere? Or I could offer to pay for half of everyone’s hair (that’s $80 pp so I would be paying $40 pp which is doable and I could save up for that even with my full time student nanny salary 🙂 ) what should I do? Is it rude to basically say you’re on your own? Is it rude to only offer to pay half and then leave them with the other half? I reqlly don’t know what to do.

I didn’t pay for my bridesmaids hair and whenever I’ve been a bridesmaid in the past, I was always expected to pay for my own hair/makeup. One of my bridesmaids wanted to go to her own hairdresser to get her hair done and I was totally fine with that.
FYI not sure if you know this but you posted this in “pregnancy”. 🙂

Can you calculate the cost into the wedding budget? Otherwise offer to pay for as much of the hair and makeup as you can.

I thought that if you wanted to have your BM’s hair professionally done you were supposed to pay for it. Giving them an option sounds good to me though since you are willing to chip in.

I would make sure to talk to them about it. Some might be totally up for that price, some may not be. That is steep when it is not your day. As much as you want all your girls with you (something I am totally looking forward to) they probably dropped some money on your wedding already, and may not be able to afford thar much. also, the suggestion of covering at least a portion could be something you consider
