Hi bees!! I have my hair and makeup trial coming up this Saturday. The girls coming to do my hair and makeup are part of a team of artists who work for another artist who started a company. I am paying the company for my trial but wondering if I should tip the girls??? Is it expected? If so whats a reasonable amount to tip considering the total cost? Hair is $65 and makeup another $65. Also if the trial goes well and I choose to use them for my wedding day I was quoted $190. It seems expensive to me but then again I have never had someone do my makeup or an elaborate hairstyle. Help a girl out please :/ …

@Tinkerbride13: That is expensive for where I live but it could be the norm where you are. I have seen other Bees on here pay over $300 for day of. Just remember do NOT pay or leave until you are 100% happy. If you hate it tell them to re do it. Bring a LOT of pictures of what you want and tell them a day ahead of what you are looking for that way they make sure they have ALL the colors they need. Good luck!

My make up was $80 and my hair was $85! I tipped for my trial and for the day of as well. I cannot remember how much I tipped for the trial but for my wedding day I tipped $50 because it came out better than I imagined.

Hey chica…. almost there!
I asked my hair and makeup team to do me a package for the gals (incl mum) and I for $135. And I loved it so much. Unfortunately I couldnt afford to tip them but I gave them wedding cake and I refer all my friends to them.

I didn’t know that some people don’t tip at all for these services. I always thought it was like restaurants, 20% standard! They must like me lol

I thought you wouldn’t tip since they are the owners of their business? At salons I thought that was the rule..if they are employees, tip. If they are the owner, don’t. I don’t know!
