- Wedding: July 2011
I’ve hired a hair stylist and make-up stylist to come to my house to do hair/make-up for myself, my two bridesmaids and mom for our wedding in July. We all live within a 5 mile radius (so they aren’t traveling far) and their business is on-location based (so going to a salon wasn’t an option). Each runs their own business and work together for events.
My question is – do I tip them each individually or is the tip “counted” in their pricing since they do not have the overhead that they would at a salon? Also, I am doing a trial run with the make-up stylist in a couple of weeks and paying for the trial run – do I tip for that as well?
I don’t want to appear cheap but it seems stilly to tip since they do not have the typical overhead usually associated with a salon and 100% of the money will go directly to them.
