Regarding my bridesmaids’ wedding day hair, I would prefer the BMs to have more natural styles as opposed to sculpted updos. So, I am perfectly fine with all of them just doing their own hair for the wedding. However every time I have been a Bridesmaid or Best Man, we always had our hair professionally done at the same salon, and the bride footed the bill. Since that has become tradition in my group of friends/famly, I feel kind of weird asking them to do their own hair for the wedding.
Who is doing your bridesmaid’s hair?

I hired someone to come to our hotel to do hair and make-up, but I left it up to my bridesmaids to choose if they wanted to do it or not. Theya all did it except my moh. My mom and my fmil also had theirs done.

Yes, and I paid for it, as part of their gift.

My bridesmaids are hair down kind of girls, in fact the only times i’ve seen one of them with her hair up is at the gym. that being said, i will offer the service to them, but they’ll probably choose not to, which is fine by me.

I asked my girls to get their hair done by the girl who came to our house just because I wanted to make sure no one had to stress and I know some people are better than others with their hair. I did tell them, though, to have their hair done as they wanted so they were more comfortable e.g. one Bridesmaid or Best Man asked to have her hair down because she is self-conscious about her skin. The only thing I wanted them to do was hopefully pick a style with a vintage feel, but that didn’t quite workout as planned. I wanted to pay for their hair and makeup, but when I found out the price x6 girls, we just couldn’t pay for all that.

I am going to have someone doing my hair and I’m leaving it up to each of the bridesmaids whether they want their hair done. i’d love to pay for them all to get it done, it’s just not in the budget:(

I had someone c ome to our venue and do their hair and makeup (I paid). They could do whatever they wanted – simple blow outs,updos, totally up to them. I did ask them all beforehand if they wanted it, and they all said yes!

I am footing the bill for a couple of my girls hair and a couple of girls are also having makeup as well. I didn’t force it on anyone, but most of them said they wanted to have it done. I have a friend who is a hairdresser so she is coming to us 😉

I decided to pay for everyone to have their hair done. I thought about finding someone to come to the location and then them paying for it if they wanted to, but I knew if I did that the one who really needs help would do it herself! So I decided to bite the bullet and pay for it.

I didn’t care one way or the other, but they all wanted to, so off to the salon we go! We’re getting married out in the boonies, so paying someone to come to us just wasn’t worth the $$.

I paid for their hair as part of their gift and had the same stylist that did my hair do theirs. When it came to their hair, I didn’t really think of what they would want. Throughout the whole process, I was trying to get feedback from my 3 girls about dresses and shoes and accessories and evertyhing, but they always said whatever I wanted was fine for them.

I want my fave women to all relax so we have hired someone to come in and do hair and makeup for everyone (even my cousin who does hair and makeup for weddings — she needs to relax like the rest of us)

My Bridesmaid or Best Man will be having their hair done as a part of their gift from me. We’re going to decide day off if they will be up or down (based on cuts) so that we make sure that everyone looks their best. One of my Bridesmaid or Best Man has "ethnic hair" (her words, not mine) and only trusts a few people, so she will be getting her hair done prior to arriving.
As for my Maid/Matron of Honor (Man of Honor), he’ll be getting his hair done too! I’ve arranged for him to go for a old fashioned hot shave while we’re getting hair and makeup started.

I am having a non-professional friend come over to do everyone’s hair, including my mom’s. She’s pretty good at it, and I’m paying her for time not for each girls’ hair, so if they want to use her, they can, and if not they can do their hair themselves or go to a salon. I think all my girls plan to use her though, so it should all work out fine! She’s close enough to be invited to the wedding, but not be involved in anything else so I didn’t feel too bad about asking her because we’re paying her. She’ll be done with everything by noon and the wedding isn’t til 4:30 so she shouldn’t miss out on the any of the wedding or reception!

- Wedding: June 2020 - Millenium Biltmore Hotel
My ladies have all been given the option to do their own hair/makeup or have a professional do it. Unfortunately, I could not offer to pay for these services for them, but I found them a good deal. They all happily obliged! (However, I would have never required this of them.)
