Bridesmaid question?

Hey everyone!
So I plan on paying for myself, my grandmother (maybe) and my 3 girls to get our make up done. As for hair, would it be wrong to tell the girls they can pay for their own or do it themselves? It’s not really in my budget to pay for hair and make up. Did anyone else have this issue?
Thanks in advance!

    I paid for the hair and had them do their own makeup. I think as long as you are state up front that you are willing to pay for one but not both due to your budget everyone should be ok with it. Would you be willing to pay for hair and not makeup? If so I would see which one they would prefer.

    Yeah. I can do one or the other. In my area, it’s pretty pricey. I don’t want to hire a cheap random person and have their hair/make up look awful. I would feel bad. I’d rather just cover one option

    I definitely understand. My mom and I paid for their hair and the ladies did their own makeup. Majority of the ladies were comfortable doing their own and helped do other makeup. So I might look to see which one they would be more comfortable doing. Also, I think all special occasion hair and makeup are expensive.


    Good luck with the rest of your planning! Congrats and happy day!

    I think that's fine as long as they know in advance and have the choice to do their own Smiley smile you could also make it optional for you to pay for their hair or makeup in case they prefer one over the other.

    As long as you're not requiring their hair to be professionally done or asking for a particularly complex style, there's nothing wrong with not covering it.
