They each pay for their own hair.  If you can spare extra to pay for it that would be awesome, but it’s not expected, especially since the bride isn’t requiring them to have the same hairstyle.

If they are not required to do their hair a certain way, then they can decide to pay for their hair to be done, or do it themselves.  If you are requiring a specific hairstyle, then I think it’s considerate for the bride to pay.  In your case though, I think the BMs should have the option to pay, or do it themselves.

If the bride is requiring them to have their hair professionally done she pays, if they have a choice of doing it themselves or having it done wherever they want then they pay.

It sounds like you are accomodating the BM’s as much as you can by providinga room at the bed and breakfast inn. If your daughter is letting them pick their own styles, have them pay for it because some may chose to do their own hair in that event.

Sounds like she’s treating her bridesmaids very well!  It is perfectly fine to have them pay for their own hair as long as professionally-styled hair is optional.

Most of my bm’s opted to have their hair done for my wedding… not that I am requiring them to do so.  I told them they could do their own hair if they wish, that I just wanted it “up.”  Because I’m not making it a must… I am not forced to pay for it.  If I had the money to do so, I so would though. 🙂

If they are not required to have their hair done professionally, then you/your daughter does not need to pay for it for them.

If they choose to have their done professionally, then they can pay for it 🙂

If your daughter was requiring them to have their hair done professionally, then I would say she should pay for them.
