    I’ve told my BMs they can have their hair however they want and that they have the option of doing it themselves or having it ‘done’.  As it happens, they’ve both chosen to have it curled so they’ll look similar anyway Smile

    Nope.  They will all be wearing the same color convertible dress…but they can choose whichever style they prefer.  Everything else is up to them.

    I’d prefer for them to pick – I’ve been a bridesmaid before and I remember one of the other bridesmaids in the party complaining about the hairstyle… I think I’ll offer to pay up to, say, $80 for each hairstyle, and if they choose something that costs more than that, they can make up the difference ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nope. Each of my bridesmaids hqve different lengths and hair textures making it impossible for them to have the same style. I told them to find a style that they liked. They are each wearing different shoes (all the same color) and I bought them jewelery that fits each of their personalities.

    Letting them pick their styles was one less thing for me to stress over.

    I paid for my Bridesmaid or Best Man to have her hair and make up done but I left it up to her and the stylist to decide what was the best look for her ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m paying to get all my BMs hair done, but they can do whatever they want as long as it’s not like mine. Everyone looks different and has different types of hair and I want them to feel beautiful so they can wear it as they wish.

    Nope, I told them to do what they want. 2 of them are going to the salon with me to get theirs done (in a style of their choice), and 1 of them will be doing her hair herself

    I told them that they could wear their hair however they wanted. I also gave them the option that they could do their own hair or have it done by a stylist. That being said I also told them that I preferred to have their hair up, but I truly wanted them to be comfortable.

    Everyone’s hair does its own “thing”, so I didn’t want to make anyone have their hair done a certain way.  Like, mine is curly, so there’s no way I could possibly wear it straight and not have it look like a train wreck by the end of the day.  So I figured I would let everyone choose what they were comfortable with and what their hair does best.  Smile

    My BMs have such different hair, there is no way that one style would work for all of them.  I just want them to be happy with whatever style they choose.

    Funnily enough, I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in one of my BM’s weddings… she also told us to do whatever we wanted with our hair, and we wound up all choosing the same style!  I remember her dad joking that we looked like the Stepford Wives.  Definitely would like to avoid that for my wedding.  LOL!

    I told my bridesmaids that they can do their hair however style they would like. However, i requested that hair and makeup be professionally done.

    Having been a bm lately in a wedding where the bride gave us free reign, I think it’s kind of nice to know whether the bride at least wants an up or down style. I told my bms that they could just leave their hair down since most of them had really short hair anyway, and then I bought them thin gold headbands to tie it all together.
