(Closed) Do you get your hair and makeup done when you are just a guest?

Well, I’ve only done it when I’ve been a member of the wedding party OR it was a sibling getting married. So, if it’s your SIL, I would spring for it. ONLY if it’s cheap though. I won’t be advocating spending $100 or anything like that.

I would do it myself.

My SIL sprung to have her hair and my nieces hair done for our reception last weekend. I thought it was really nice that they wanted to look special for the day.

I would get my makeup/hair done even if I was just a guest. We’re going to a wedding next month and I’m not a relative or in thebridal party, but I’m going to get my hair done–last time I went to a wedding, I did it myself and it was a mess by the end of the night, and I just didn’t feel cute. And there were plenty of pics taken by friends, even if they weren’t professional. I’m just getting a blow out, not like an updo or anything. As for makeup, can you go to a MAC store? They’ll do it for $50, I believe.

If I could afford it, i would pay to have it done, only because I am not good at doing my own hair and makeup

Well it’s up to you. If you want it done then have it done, there’s no rule to say you can’t 🙂

The only time I had my hair ‘done’ was for my FBIL’s wedding. I just had a blowout. I did my own makeup. To be fair… I wasn’t in any of the formal pictures.

The only time I got my hair done was when I was an MC for a wedding and the couple wanted me to wear the same color dress as the BMs, sit at the head table with them, and be in photos. I did my own makeup though since I don’t like having others do my makeup.

I’ve never even heard of people getting their hair/mu done if they weren’t in the wedding party – so  it’s probably safe to say it’s not required, and if you don’t want to, it’s fine to do it yourself.

i never get my hair done in an up do or anything as a guest. but sometimes i plan to have a haircut on the same day of an event so i can have it blow dryed nicely by the hairdresser.

I might consider the MAC counter or something for makeup.  I’d consider getting a blowout too, but my hair is unruly!  I don’t think it is necessary for their sake, though…
