@Mrs2b2014:  I think it’s totally fine to say, if you’d like makeup done professional it costs xx amount. Since you aren’t “requiring” them to have pro makeup for the day, as some bridezillas do, there is nothing wrong with giving them the option.

If you can afford it and want them to get their hair and makeup professionally done, then pay for it.

If paying for it is a bit tight and you don’t care whether they do or don’t say, “At 8am, I have booked us appointments to get our hair done. I will be getting my makeup professionally done and if you want to, you can, too. The only thing is, the hair is on me, but the makeup would be an additional $55.”

Honestly, the fact that you’re paying for ANYTHING should be greatly appreciated!! I got my hair done professionally for both weddings I’ve been in and paid $70 and $85 for each myself. I always do my own makeup.

@Mrs2b2014:  I arranged services for myself at the hotel, told the BM’s and mom’s what it cost, and offerend to have them join me.  They are 100% free to do their own hair and make up or go somewhere of their choosing. If you are not mandating that they have these things done to your liking, then you don’t have to pay for it.

I would probably just offer what you can pay for. As in “Hair’s on me. I’m also going to have my make-up done but you guys are welcome do to whatever you want on that front.”
