I’ve only been a bridesmaid twice and will be a third time next month.  The first wedding I was in the bride paid for us to have our hair done and we could choose whatever style we wanted.  The second, the bride, one of my best friends, paid for our hair but requested we all have updos because she was wearing her hair down. 

At first I was a little annoyed because I don’t like my hair up, but even though all of us had our hair up, everyone looked different.  One girl had a lower side bun, one had shorter hair so hers was more half up/half down and mine was all in the back of my head.

For the wedding I am in next month the bride is letting us do whatever we want with our hair and we’re also on our own for paying for it, which is fine by me.

For my wedding, my husband’s cousin offered to do everyone’s hair for free and I only had 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man so they all had their hair done.  I did not dictate a type of style.

I think around me it’s more unusual for the bride to want the Bridesmaid or Best Man to have the same hair style.

I think the hairstyles should be of a similar done-ness (ie one girl shouldn’t have a prom updo while another just has a blowout) and the ideas I have for my girls have a few of them having very similar hairdos, but I think there should be some variety to allow for each girl’s hair texture and age.
