I’m trying to figure out what’s best for wedding hair and makeup. I would LOVE to go pay a couple hundred to get everything professionaly done at some fancy salon but that’s not possible right now. Any idea’s on how I could go about finding a stylist to come out to my church and do my hair/makeup and MAYBE the bm’s hair? Would I call a salon and ask if one of their stylist’s does that? Or post a ad on craigslist or another site to see if someone is interested?
I will have to get my hair done professionaly one way or another but I feel bad getting my hair and makeup done professionaly but not having the bm’s done. I just feel like it’s rude. I can’t afford it all though. My sister has a friend who is willing to come help out with hair but she won’t do it alone because of how long it will take, so I would have to find another stylist.
I would really appreciate any suggestions or idea’s. Thank you!

I had my hair done by my creative SIL and my bridal party did their own hair. I told them if they wanted something face, they could go to a salon. I was just honest with the fact that I don’t have the money to be speding on hair for me, much less you. Of course, that is the relationship I have with my friends (it might be different for you)
I think if you have a make up application at a local salon and see what make-up works for you, you can buy that brand and do your own. Just pay attention to what the make-up artist is telling you and ask tons of questions.

I understand being in a budget! What I’m planning on doing is doing my own makeup, and the girls doing their own as well.
Then I’m planning on asking my friend, who is a cosmotologist but does not currently work in a salon, to do my hair and my girls. (She aready comes to my house and cuts and colors my hair for me) I’m not sure how much I’m going to give her yet, but I’m guessing maybe about $150-200. To do my hair, my 3 maids, and both of the mother’s.
This might not work in your budget, but here are a few suggestions.
– See if you know of anyone though friend’s circles who has been through cos and might do work outside of a salon. That way you get cheaper prices, and they get to keep ALL the money.
– Also, check out any local beauty schools, see if you can go there day of and get your hair done as well as maids… or just yours. lol OR see if they recommend any recent or near recent grads to come and do your hair.
Hope that helps!

I didn’t know you had to pay for your BMs. I guess I have a lot to learn

Thanks ladies! I really don’t mind telling my sister or best friend that I can’t afford to do their hair or make-up, I know they wouldn’t care. But my fiance’s two sisters are my other bridesmaids and they are fairly wealthy. I feel like they expect to have their hair and makeup done professionaly and they assume i’ll pay for it because thats what has happened for them at previous weddings. I don’t know….aggh!
