I've just been told by my hair and make up artist (having already paid £500 for a trial for me, my sister and mum, and a £50 deposit), that as there is so many of us having stuff done on the wedding day, she has booked an assisstant. However, she is charging us extra for this.
I personally think this is a bit unfair, as we are paying per person, and obviously this means it will take her less time in total, so surely the asssisstants pay should come out of hers? Otherwise she is getting paid in full to not do 100% of the work, then we are paying extra for the asssistant?
Currently, it is me (bride) having hair and make up, then two bridemaids having hair (only), and two having make up (only), which I didn't think would be massively excessive!
Any thoughts? Is this normal?
