    I think it’s great if you want to pay for their hair, but I’d also give them something more personal, that isnt’ related to your wedding.

    If I was a bridesmaid I would not choose to get my hair done.  So having the bride pay for something I wouldn’t choose would not to my mind be a gift to me – it is not for my benefit it is for the benefit of the bride.  I feel like you should get them something that they’ll enjoy that’s purely for them.

    But it does not have to be expensive, just something sweet and cute, flasks?

    I voted no…it’s not enough. IMO, if the bride wants the BMs to have a certain hairstyle or done by a certain stylist, she SHOULD pay. I wouldn’t consider that a gift. You don’t have to break the bank purchasing gifts but I think that something personal that they can use after your wedding would be nice.

    I agree with the others.  You didn’t exactly say if you are making them get their hair done or if they all happened to choose it.  If they chose it, I’d say you are in a better position to make that a gift.  However, if you are insisting, then you should pay out of obligation.

    In that case especially I think something inexpensive will be great.  I’m actually not a fan of inexpensive jewelry – but many people are.  But maybe bead bracelets?

    Etsy has some super cute clutches that aren’t expensive.  Or I love the idea of flasks, polyvor has these adorable colored ones.
