I think that if you want them all to have their hair and make-up done, then yes.  If you don’t mind them doing their own makeup, then no.  For my bridesmaids, they will be doing their own hair and all of their makeup except their eyes, which the make-up artist I hired will do (along with tweaking anything she sees needs it).  However, if any of the ladies want to do all of their own makeup, that’s fine.

hey reverie! honestly for mine, i’m asking the bridesmaids if they would like to do their hair and makeup with me..if they choose not to, then that’s also fine with me..so to answer your question, no i don’t think the bride is responsible..they have the option to do it if they want to do it or not…

I think that because brides schedule their OWN hair/make-up, it’s easier for them to also take care of the ‘maids.

Personally, I gave all my girls the option of getting their hair/make-up done professionally. I hired the hair/make-up artist to come to our hotel room, and gave them the pricing, and said to let me know by a certain date if they wanted in. Some did, some didn’t. For the girls that opted in, I scheduled the time for them. It was the least I could do.

I think that’s what works best for everyone. Usually salons and such will just schedule a block of time depending on how many people you have.

I think normally when the bride makes her appointment for hair and make up, she makes them for her bridesmaids also. Some brides pay for these appointments as their gift to the BMs (or part of their gift).

The way I’m working it out: I’ve selected a hair dresser, make up artist, and nail shop. I’ll make appointments for a bridal party there. I’ll be paying for my BMs to get their hair and nails done. However, if they want their make up done, that’s something they will pay for on their own. (Most of them wear make up on a regular basis so they could do it themselves and it would be no big deal.)

Usually I think Brides make the plans though because they’re the ones with the schedule in mind and it’s just much more convenient (usually) for everyone to go to the same place. Hope this helps!

I am scheduling a stylist to come to our hotel while we get ready. I will get a count in advance of who wants their hair done, but I will not be paying for it.  I wish I could – it is fairly reasonable here, but I have 6 bridesmaids. 

Later in the day my Maid/Matron of Honor (sister) and I will be getting airbrush make-up done at a salon.  They are welcome to join if they’d like.  I am not requiring them to get anything (hair/makeup/or nails) done.  It is completely optional.

Our best man’s wife, who is also my hairdresser will be coming to my hotel room to do my hair, and she will also do the bridesmaids hair if they want.  I’m still trying to figure out if I’m going to pay for all of this or if I’m going to give the girls the pricing info and let them pay themselves.  I’d really like to pay for all of my BMs to have their hair done, but our friend is expensive, and so far she hasn’t offered up any discounts.
