how did your bridesmaids hair look on your wedding day?
everyone have it Up? Down? half and half?
did some have up and others have theirs down?
did what your bridesmaids looked like play a roll in anything? hair and make up?
I would really like my girls to be polished, some girls dont do anything beside a blowdryer and chapstick when others go all out…how do we get a good medium? I looked into hair and make up for me and the girls thank would be around $1300 without tips! ugh, what to do?

I tend to be on the side of “I don’t care” how my BMs look as long as they wear their dress, haha. I did offer to pay for either their hair or makeup. I gave them the option to pay for the other service if they wanted both. I couldn’t afford to pay for all of their hair/makeup either. But I am letting them choose their makeup and/or hair style.

I had mine all have their hair done up. I paid for the hair so I just said they needed to be an updo and they sort of told the stylist what they had in mind (if anything) and she did them.
Only one really wanted her hair down but since everyone else wanted it up I had her get an updo as well to match.
Only one didn’t like hers so we took it out and I had the stylist redo it to something better.

I have two and I’m paying for their hair. We don’t know yet how they’ll do their hair, but I know I’ll be having mine in a low loose updo. I think I’d like their hair up too but I don’t know.

I’m not paying for my BMs hair, so I’m not giving them any rules about how I want them to look. A couple have asked me what I prefer, but I’m letting them pick what they want. I would prefer them to do their hair up and I’m assuming most will. They all have good style so I trust that they will look good!

@AndysCraftsNmore: I didn’t care what my girls did with their hair, but we ended up all wearing it down. Out of all of us, I’m the chapstick girl (no blowdryer or brush lol) so I wasn’t worried about it.

I’m paying to get their hair done, but they can have their hair done whatever way they want. Most of them seem to want an updo because the wedding is in July in the midwest (though it is inside with AC, but pictures outside) and the dress has a low vee back, but they are on the fence. All of my bridesmaids are wearing the same dress, and that is enough to make them look uniform. I don’t want to attempt to make them look like identical triplets or something. I’m letting them wear whatever jewelry they want too, and just giving a color for shoes. If I had ended up with different dresses for the BM, I probably would unify their hair and accessories a bit more. I want them to look like part of the wedding, but still look like individuals too.

@AndysCraftsNmore: My girls did their own hair. I asked them to wear it up somehow. They all looked nice.
