    I would probably just ask them and say they can DIY the other. I wouldn’t mention the prices because then they may feel like they need to pay for the other. I’d just say:

    “I’m thinking about getting a hair or make-up artist. Would you prefer to have your hair or make-up professionally done? I wish I could cover both! You could DIY the other in whatever style you prefer. Let me know what you think.”

    Personally I would rather have my hair professionally done. I wear make-up all the time but I rarely put my hair in a formal updo.

    I would ask the BMs, some may feel they would be more capable of DIYing their hair, some may feel they would be better at DIYing their makeup. 

    I wouldn’t cover the same one for all BMs, unless they all wanted the same one covered. So I would get both a makeup artist and hair stylist, and have the hair stylist do the BMs that you have covered for hair, and the makeup artist do the makeup of the BMs you have covered for that.
