10 Stunning Bridesmaids Hairstyles For Your Best Friends
reading time: 5 minutes.
When popping the question, your partner probably wasn’t aware of the fact that to put a ring on you also meant having to deal with your crazy friends - starting from your wedding day. But your friends are your family, and as your big day approaches you obviously want to make sure that all of your ride or die’s are at their best, head to toe!
Whilst I can’t help much with toes - although, if you need some nail art ideas, you can always count on our blog - I can always help with hair. So let’s begin: here are ten stunning bridesmaid hair ideas for your friends to wear at your wedding!
Bridesmaids Hairstyles: Boho Braid (back to index)
It starts like a braid, it ends like a ponytail. And guess what? It’s an amazing, simple yet effective hairstyle to keep your hair in place with style. The figure 8 braid, also known as the infinity braid, is quite the fierce hairstyle - perhaps not the best option for a bridal party and definitely not the most popular option when talking wedding hairstyles, but if interrupted and paired with tousled ends it can spice up your regular low-pony and turn it from stay-at-home to slay-all-day.
Bridesmaids Hairstyles: Half-Up, Half-Down (back to index)
One of the most popular, evergreen choices for anything formal is the half-up, half-down hairstyle. Usually worn loose, tousled, perhaps even with subtle flower crowns or other themed hair accessories - perfect for spring weddings. The half-up, half-down hairstyle is a solid choice for both medium and long hair, without counting too much on the hair parting or the presence of a fringe - making it a versatile look that could potentially make all of your bridesmaids happy. Thin hair? No worries. You can always add hair extensions for a plump, glossy finish.
Bridesmaids Hairstyles: One-Sided (back to index)
This may seem a simple and lazy choice, but it’s far from it. Wearing long hair all on one side highlights the neck, shoulders, and jawline with elegance and simplicity: after all, they say that beautiful things don’t ask for attention, right? Unfortunately, this option only works best with long hair, way past shoulder length. Disclaimer: avoid if you’re not a fan of side parts! If you have thick hair, you can also add drama with ultra volume clip in hair extensions.
Bridesmaids Hairstyles: Crown Braids (back to index)
Also known as the milkmaid braid, this type of plait allegedly became popular in the dark ages, when having hair in front of your face could’ve condemned you for being a witch. The crown braid is a protective hairstyle, as it tucks in the ends of your hair whilst making you look cool, elegant, and sophisticated. Oh, and did I mention it’s perfect for any hair type? What else could you ask for in a braid?
Bridesmaids Hairstyles: Loose Waves (back to index)
What else? This hairstyle works on both long and medium hair, and it’s the safest choice. Generally speaking, a wavy blow dry makes everyone quite happy, so I don’t see why your bridesmaids wouldn’t love it! Also, this hairstyle would give them a lot of freedom - they can make it theirs and choose how to part their hair, without ending up with mismatched hairstyles. Win/win situation!
Bridesmaids Hairstyles: Retro (back to index)
Why not add a touch of vintage to your besties? Pin-up hairstyles are the perfect combo of romantic and daring! Don’t get fooled by the word “retro”, as this hairstyle is still a solid choice in 2022! In fact, many celebrities choose to wear their hair in a vintage ‘do these days, whilst stepping on the red carpet. If you’d like to add some character and an old Hollywood vibe to your wedding, spice up your bridesmaids’ dresses with a pin-up inspired cut and get them to curl their hair up à la Bettie Page. Voila!
Bridesmaids Hairstyles: Messy Bun (back to index)
If even Hailey Bieber opted for this hairstyle when saying yes to Canadian heartthrob Justin Bieber, perhaps it's a hairdo to look into a bit more in detail.
Romantic and comfortable, this hairstyle never fails to surprise - especially when paired with the right accessory. Think of flower-themed jewels in your hair, or perhaps diamante hair pins, and last but not least, flowing tendrils to frame your features.
Bridesmaids Hairstyles: The Low Ponytail (back to index)
Did you know, the low pony is the next big thing? I know, I know. Love it or hate it, this simple yet romantic hairstyle has made its way to the top all the way from the depth of Instagram, were Kim Kardashian made it happen (there, and on red carpet on multiple occasions). If you’re a fan of anything minimal this is your chance to look effortlessly classy.
Bridesmaids Hairstyles: The Slicked Back Bun (back to index)
Perhaps your vibe is more minimalistic? In that case, you can’t go wrong with a slicked-back bun. You can pick your own - high or low, and let your bridesmaids shine in a detailed dress, jewellery, or focus on their make-up. Maybe we have to thank the Kardashians for making this ballerina hairstyle fashionable; either way, if this is going to be your choice, I hope your bridesmaids tolerate hair gel well.
Bridesmaids Hairstyles: Dutch Braids (back to index)
Last but not least, the Dutch braid is an all-time favourite since the 2010s - when it broke the internet. Both fierce and romantic, this gorgeous hairstyle is adaptable to many different occasions and it’s not unique to formal events. It can be combined with hair accessories or left as it is, and works with any shade or hair type - as long as you have enough length and volume to work with. Absolutely stunning!
