I’m curious (and it might not make a difference in your mind) if she’s a friend that you would have invited to your wedding if you weren’t using her as your hair dresser?

If she would be coming, and taking time off work even if you were going to use a local hair dresser, I think that makes a difference.  Whether she’s coming as a friend who’s going to do your hair, or a hair dresser that you’ve extended an invite to dinner to.

@BridetoBe101610: How much is she charging for your hair?

I would probably give her $75-$100 for travel and time, plus whatever she is charging you. Then I would give a tip. So I am thinking no more than $250.

Wow. I honestly would just tip her your usual amount, maybe a little more since she’s driving to meet you. But if you’re feeding her, a guest, and giving them free drinks, I think she’d be happy with just that! $500 would be an INSANE tip and while you probably would make her day, I don’t think she’d feel right taking such a huge tip from a bride ona budget 🙂

I agree with @chantelleylace. You are making it very enjoyable for her by setting her up with everything like that. If you want to give her a really good tip then give her half of what you pay for her to do your hair. So if you pay $100 for hair then give her $50.

How much would just the cut cost and how long does it take.  I would take that time how many cuts she would be loosing on that day plus tips.
