Bridesmaids Hair Questions
Posted 04 May 2015 - 08:12 PM
I have 5 bridesmaids. My resort charges $108 for hair. We can use resort credits and only pay the tax which is great. The only issue is the resort limits your total spa credit per room. My worry is I have a few girls only staying 3-4 nights, they only get $100-150 in credits to use at salon. If they want to do massage or other service then won't have enough credits to use towards hair.
I have no problem paying the 16% tax for each of them if they use credits. I just don't think I can pay full $108 x 5 if they don't use credits. I need to book appointments soon for this. How did you all go about this or asking your BM if they wanted to do their own hair or use credits at salon or pay full?

@misbosox From what I understand, I don't think it's necessary to pay for your bridesmaid's hair if you give them the option to go to a salon or do it themselves. That's what I'm doing with my five bridesmaids - three of them are getting their hair styled and two are doing it themselves, and the three getting their hair done are paying themselves. This is how it was at my brother's wedding as well and everyone was totally find with it, including me - I definitely didn't want or expect my sister-in-law to pay when I knew I had the option to do it myself. I definitely think it's only necessary to pay if you make it a requirement that they have to have it styled at a salon.

Since you have 5 BMs, I just tell them and provide options on how they want their hair and make up done. Hopefully from there, they know they will have to pay.

I thought I commented on this thread, but I guess it didn't go through.
I am not planning to pay for my girls' hair, but this is because I did pay for their dresses/robes/gifts already. I think that most of the time the bridesmaids pay for their own, but I have seen where the bride pays for them. My girls are going to be doing their own hair/helping eachother with their hair. We don't want anything to intricate anyway so it should work out fine

I think it is very generous to pay for it if you can, but I've always had to pay for my hair as a bridesmaid - even in one wedding where the bride did REQUIRE us to get our hair done (and I had super, duper short hair so it was a waste of money for me) and even as MOH in my sister's destination wedding. So I think if you don't pay for it, that is completely fine as well.

Thanks for all the advice ladies. I think everything will work out. I have one bridesmaid that is good at doing hair so she wanted to do her own. she doesn't like others doing her hair
All my other bridesmaids that are staying the full week want to use their credits so I'm going to pay their taxes for them. I have one bridesmaid that is only going for 3 days only so won't have many credits. So, with that and mostly because she was the one who took charge of my bachelorette party I'm going to pay for her hair in full as a gift for the party.
