My hair dresser for the past 12+ years has indicated that he and his partner will be attending my destination wedding (of course they have been invited). Several of my friends attending also have been long time clients of his. What is the protocol here.. he would like to do my hair for the wedding but I think I should offer compensation. It is an all inclusive resort so the cost for 3 nights is almost $1,000 (just for him not including his partner) plus airfare. I was thinking offering to pay for his portion of the room in lieu of 2 practice hair style session prior to the wedding and ask him to do my hair and perhaps my mother's for the wedding. Does that seem reasonable? I don't want to offend him.
Any insight would be appreciated.
