My hairdresser is amazing. I love how she does my hair, and I loved how it looked after the trial (I have long straight hair, and am having her do a wavy low side bun).
She’ll be coming to my FMIL’s house Sunday morning at 7am to do our hair, the limo picks us up at 11:15. She owns her own shop, and her shop (close to her house) is about a 30 minute drive from FMIL’s. She also has two little kids, so I’m so greatful that she agreed to come to the house to do our hair.
She doing my hair, FMIL, and FSIL (who is also my MOH), as well as my 8 year old daughter’s (junior BM) and 3 year old daughter’s (ring bearer).
And she’s charging me……$235 (US) for EVERYONE. That’s ridiculously low. I budgeted $400. I’m thinking of giving her $300. What do you think?

Yes, I think that would be nice. I paid over $800 to get hair done for 6 people!

aw! How sweet! I though she was going to overcharge from the title. 🙂 I tihnk giving her $300 would be a lovely gesture! And I’m sure she’ll appreciate it!

@MrsBlah: I love getting deals, so I’d be happy. A $65 tip seems reasonable given all the people she has to style.

@MrsBlah: THat would be really sweet of you and I know she’ll appreciate it. Sounds like a deal even at 300 🙂

She must really, really like you, and/or she must really need the money, because that price is ridiculously, unbelievably low for that number of people. You definitely should be giving her close to $300, because, with a normal, 20-percent tip, that already would be $282.

Wow that is an AMAZING deal!! Just leave a nice tip

That is an amazing deal! I’m so jealous. 300 sounds about right including tip.
For me, my mother, FMIL, FSIL, sister, and MOH it’s costing me $1070. Sigh.

… I paid 65 dollars for my four bridesmaids and myself. We all looked stunning. Maybe I’m just cheap. 🙂

I spoke to one guy who quoted me $3000! I nearly died, I was like are you Oribe or Edward Tricomi? It was difficult to maintain my composure the entire length of the call. Manhattan is sometimes crazy like that, but I’m not the a-hole crazy enough to even consider something like that, lol!

@MrsBlah: Very generous, go for it– I’m sure she’ll appreciate your consideration.

@ddavila2001: :O That’s more than I paid for the catered lunch AND cupcakes for 70 people! Crazy.

That’s AWESOME. Tip her big. I’m expecting it’ll easily cost $600 for hair and makeup for me, my sister and my two cousins.
