    My bridesmaids can do their hair (and makeup and jewelry) however they wish.

    I got hair feathers/flowers for the BMs, so their hair will likely be similar. I’m not mandating a hairstyle. Plus, if you have multiple stylists doing the hair they’ll all look a bit different anyway.

    I didn’t know that some bridal parties all had the same hairstyle. I definitely wouldn’t do it. Some people have thick hair, some thin, some wavy, some straight – what I’m getting at is that what looks good on person will not necessarily look good on someone else.

    I think it depends on your girls.. if they have similar hair and you can pull it off, then it certainly doesn’t hurt to ask your girls if they mind having the same style… but you might have to shell out the bucks to have it done if it’s complex.

    I let them do whatever they wanted.Some had shorter hair so it would have been hard to be too uniformed anyways. I like how it lets them show some personality too. They actually ended up with some really neat ideas! Some did these pretty up-dos some added braids in the front or hair broaches etc. It worked out really well.

    I let everybody pick their own, but they ended up kind of all looking the same.  It was 110 in the shade on our wedding day, so everybody wanted an updo when push came to shove.  I don’t really think it’s an issue either way.

    None of my wedding matched (different dresses, shoes, jewelry, etc) so it would have been silly for them to have the same hair styles. Plus, they have completely different hair so it wouldn’t have worked anyway?

    I think it would look silly and be impracticle for the girls to have the same hairstyle for the day.  However, I think most girls will have updos b/c it will be hot…

    I like it better when they all have different hairstyles.  I told my bridesmaids that they could wear their hair however they want, but no one could wear it exactly like mine!

    Mine were all the same.  I only had 3 bms and a jr.  Two of my bms picked it out the morning of the wedding.  THEY (and my mom) thought it looked nicer all the same, though I gave them the option of wearing it differently!  I was a bit surprised but they chose something simple that looked nice for all of them!

    I think I’ll let my girls wear their hair however they want. They’re wearing different dresses in different shades of blue, different silver shoes, different jewelry so it makes sense that they’ll have different hair styles. All my girls are beautiful in totally different ways to it doesn’t make sense to me to try to make them look the same/ wear the same things.

    personally, i don’t like the look of the “bridal brigade.” i don’t want all my girls to look like a matching army. i want them each to show their own individual style and feel comfortable and BEAUTIFUL!!! this includes their accessories, their makeup, and the way they style their hair.

    I think having your BM’s have all the same hair would look odd and cultish.  I don’t mean this to sound harsh, but they’re your friends standing up with you on your wedding day – not a chorus line of show girls.  Let them wear their hair in a way that’s unique and flattering to them – isn’t that what you would want if you were someone’s BM?

    I actually didn’t give my bridesmaids or my hair stylist any input at all about how their hair ought to be done. I figured between their own preferences and the stylist’s experience and ideas, they’d come up with something pretty. They looked fantastic, I loved that one of them came up with a 1940s-inspired look. I wouldn’t have wanted them to have the same hairstyle actually; they were already wearing matching shoes, dresses, and jewelry, and their hair types varied greatly in length, thickness, straight versus curly, etc, so it just made sense to have different styles. I loved the looks on all of them.

    [ETA] @lisa105: I don’t really agree with you, but I have to say that the “cultish” comment made me laugh. Bridesmaid cult!! Hilarious.
