Believe it or not, booking a MUA has been the most stressful part of planning my wedding so far, and for the exact same reason. Luckily, I found a woman who does both hair and makeup and her minimum requirement is a dollar amount (as opposed to a per-person). I ended up telling all members of my bridal party the cost of hair (alone), makeup (alone), and both together and asked if anyone would be interested and for what service(s). Not everyone decided to go with makeup, but almost everyone wanted their hair done which helped me meet the MUA minimum.

Either way, before you sign a contract please give your bridal party the info and price and guage their interest. Either they’ll surprise you by wanting services done (great!), or let you know that you should keep looking to find a MUA that does not have a minimum.

My make up artist did not require a minimum, but she also did my hair as well. I had her give me pricing and I sent a message to all of my bridesmaid to gauge interest. She ended up doing hair and makeup for me, my mom, my Maid/Matron of Honor, and a bridesmaid; all of which paid about $120 for hair/makeup. I would just politely ask everyone to see who would consider paying it; I was shocked anyone took me up on it since I had no hair/makeup requests for the girls.
