Bridezilla demands her friend does her hair and makeup for free because she doesn’t want to spend $350 on professional help

  • A bride wants her friend to do her hair and makeup for free as a show of goodwill
  • Her friend, who is ‘good at doing hair styles’ admitted she’s not a makeup artist
  • But the bride-to-be was insistent that she should help to save her money
  • In the end she rudely declined or help and said she’d pay the $350 for a pro¬†

A bride has demanded that her friend does her hair and makeup for free because she doesn’t want to hire a professional for $350.

The friend, who uploaded their text message exchange anonymously to Reddit, said she was more than happy to create a look with her locks but wasn’t particularly good at makeup.

This didn’t sit well with the bride-to-be, who believed she could blend multiple eye shadows, contour and do a winged liner easily.

When the bride sent her a stylish image of what she wanted the friend said she would need to get her own foundation from Sephora, colour matched to her skin tone, and pick something slightly easier to replicate

‘My friend is getting married and asked if I could help with hair and makeup because she doesn’t want to pay a professional,’ the friend wrote.

‘I tell her I can do her hair and a simple makeup look (FOR FREE) but she isn’t happy with that. I’m not a makeup artist.’

Their iMessage exchange started innocently enough, with the bride saying she didn’t want to fork out hundreds on a look when she only wanted something ‘simple’ done.

‘I can definitely do your hair for you, no problem. But I’m not that great at doing makeup on others,’ her friend responded.

This infuriated the bride, given she thought she wouldn’t need to buy any extra beauty products, and she began to question her friend’s ability.

‘So you can’t do my makeup? I really thought you’d be able to help since your makeup always looks so good,’ she said.

‘Girl, I can help. I just can’t do anything complicated. I’m not a makeup artist. Honestly you’re probably better off hiring a makeup artist since that’s the look you want. I will gladly still do your hair,’ her friend responded.

But instead of pleasantly accepting the offer she said: ‘Whatever. I guess I’m going to be stuck paying $350’.

Users on Reddit couldn’t believe the exchange and said the friend had done the right thing directing her back to the professionals.

‘That’s a heavy and hard to do look especially if you are not a learned makeup artist. People always complement my own makeup and ask if I can do theirs but in reality it’s an entirely different game to do makeup on somebody else,’ one person said.

‘I don’t understand women who do this on their wedding day. I would rather pay $350 and know I’m getting exactly what I want compared to having someone do a look for free and it be subpar,’ another said.

A third added: ‘Okay people – when someone talks to you like this THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIEND. No matter how long you have known them or whatever. Friends do not treat friends this way.’
