    Are you paying for your bridesmaids services as well? That is usually not expected of the bride unless you are doing as part of their bridesmaids gifts. 

    In terms of tipping, it should be 15-20%, even for a wedding. Look around, a lot of salons put together packages for brides and bridal parties that are worthwhile.

    I paid for my BM’s hair and my own from two different stylists and tipped both.  I don’t know what the percentage was, but I added a dollar amount to each.  I didn’t hire a makeup person, so no tipping involved there.  I did not, however, tip at my hair trial that I also paid for.

    i’m also wondering the same thing – for me (2 styles) plus 3 bridesmaids (1 time styling) = $1200

    Does that mean if tip 15% i am out $180…?  errrgh that sounds like so much money….

    so my total would be $1380 (or more if i tip more)

    I think you should tip both. You defiantly shouldn’t tip one and not the other. I know it seems like a lot but its the right thing to do. 


    I paid for my girls dresses and accessories so they paid for their own hair and makeup. I encouraged them to tip and then added my own tip to the hair and makeup ladies for coming to meet us at my house.
