Hair and Makeup

Recommended Posts

As far as I know, it's not necessary to pay for all the BM's hair etc. Some brides like to take care of it as either part of the gift or as a nice gesture. But I definitely don't think it's bad if you don't/can't pay for everyone. That's a pretty big expense...esp w/ a larger bridal party. But it may be a good idea to at least reccomend local salons/stylists if your girls don't already have someone they use regularly.

I don't know about getting my make up professionally done. I got my make up done at grad and I looked like a clown. I was VERY upset and had barely any time to take it off and apply new stuff. Ever since then i've been afraid of those make up artists LOL

 

I am getting my hair done either at the salon or one of my girlfriends (who is a hair dresser) may be there. But it's still unkown because she may have an opportunity to go to a hair show in England! i feel bad for her because she is really torn between the wedding and show sad.gif

any wedding i've been in (about 5 now!) i always paid for my own hair to be done. then again, i've never been a part of a DW. but i would say that by no means are you required to pay for it - but it would be an option to give that as a gift.

I know that my girls are all struggling with money so I am not sure what to do. My sister said she can still do mine, but since she will be about 6 months pregnant I don't see how she can do 7 girls in one afternoon, that would take so long, maybe I can have her do half and hire someone for the other half?

thanks for starting this thread!!! i have completely overlooked what to do for my BM's hair & make-up. The past few weddings I have been in, the bride DID paid for us to get one done (either hair or make-up). If girls wanted both, they just paid for one. I have to figure this out b/c I don't have enough in my budget to pay for everyone (5 BM total)!!

 

I plan to have Dreams do my hair & make-up, but it is going to be really simple - probably just blown out with just the front part tied back. As for make-up, I'm going to get mine done at Sephora or a dept store before I go and buy what they suggest. I'm hoping the stylist from the Dreams spa can recreate it!! Or, I might see if my sister can do it... I'm planning to just share the make-up with the BMs.
