Whether you offer to pay or not, you have no legitimate discretion over your friends’ hair or makeup. They are people, not props.

I’m sure they can figure it out on their own.

Sarcasm aside, no matter what you’ve known other brides to do, and no matter how little you control them in other ways, it’s still improper etiquette to dictate hair. Contrary to your experience, I’ve never seen any bride who did this.

I’ve been a bridesmaid many, many, many times. The only time I remember with anything less than warm fuzzy feelings and joy is the time the bride told me I had to wear my hair a certain way with an ornament she provided. That’s what Bees are trying to share here. It doesn’t matter if you are paying if you are making someone you supposedly care about feel uncomfortable. Geez. Make the hair pieces optional. Hair styles go with facial shapes and hair length and individual comfort more than they go with dresses.

This thread has me scratching my head I still don’t see what the big deal is here. Maybe let’s all accept it could be cultural differences and what is and isn’t acceptable in certain circles, instead of accusing OP of improper etiquette.  In my circle, this is perfectly reasonable— I would never pitch a fit about my hair on someone else’s special day it’s so not about me and I’m happy to do it.
