bridesmaid hair and makeup

Hi everyone,
I was wondering if it was weird to have someone around to do the bridesmaids makeup, but not hair? I'm going to go to a salon to get my hair done the morning of, but a makeup artist will come to the bridal suite to do everyone's makeup. I'm going to pay for the makeup for everyone, but I wasn't planning on taking everyone to the salon.... If I'm providing one thing, should I also provide the other? What is everyone else doing (or what did you do)? Thanks for the help!

I was a BM in a wedding last fall where the bride paid for our hair but not our makeup - and none of us thought it was weird. =)

I have been in weddings where they didnt pay for any and I never thought they should.I have also been in a few where they paid for one and not the other still was ok with it. You might want to ask if they are paying to get their hair done and maybe they would want to go with and get it done by a differnt stylist while you were

As of right now, I am paying for my BMs to get their nails (mani/pedi) done. They are paying for their hair and makeup themselves. I don't think it is wierd at all and I agree with jersey, see if they want to get their hair done and maybe they can go to the salon with you.

HTH!

Not at all. I'm paying to have their makeup done, but they are on their own for hair.

Maybe I am cheap but I think they should pay for eveything themselves I have never had anyone pay for anything for me. Thats why there is Bridal Party Gifts.. I am getting them a cute coach wristlet/pouch bag :) Hair and Makeup is all them though thats part of theie responsibilities as being a bridesmaid...
