    Bridesmaid Hairstyles We Love

    A wedding is one of the most important events in a girl’s life. It’s the day she’ll marry her one true love and embark on a whole new chapter in her life. A bride shouldn’t need to worry about her bridesmaids hairstyles looking like “something old or something blue” that went out of style years ago.  Here are some new, updated bridesmaids hairstyles we think are fabulously flattering, but won’t steal the show from the bride!

    The braided bun hair styleBraided Bun

    When thinking about wedding hair, the classic updo comes to mind. A new spin for bridesmaid hairstyles is the braided bun. Avoid the high bun accompanied by a braid. This look is out of style and will make you standout for the wrong reasons as you walk down the aisle. Instead, the bun should be placed at the nape of the neck with two braids formed from pigtails wrapped around it. Bridesmaids should have some texture to their hair if they are trying this look.

    The low twisted ponytailTwisted Low Ponytail

    This bridesmaid hairstyle is ideal for women with longer hair. It works best if you have thick hair with some curl or wave in it. The style is very easy to recreate, but still formal enough for a wedding. The ponytail should be twisted and worn low in the back. Volumizing products should be used to enhance the texture of the ponytail. Keep the hair loose and secure either with a hair tie that matches your hair color or a jeweled ponytail holder.

    Long loose waves with rope braids hair styleLoose and Wavy

    Women with straight or wavy hair can make an elegant style by wearing their hair down. Adding a few loose waves makes the style more modern. If you want something more than just waves, rope braids can also be added to this hair style. Women with bobs can also add curls to create their wedding hair look. Instead of loose waves, larger waves can cultivate an Old Hollywood feel.

    The Loose Low Side BunSide Bun

    Another choice for bridesmaid hairstyles is this sultry side bun. The bun can be worn loose with a few face framing strands left out or tighter. Twisting a low ponytail into a bun and pinning is the only requirement to create this look. Hair texture won’t matter so much with this hairstyle. However, you should have mid-length or longer hair.

    Wedding hair for women with very short haircuts can be tricky. However, a few products and styling tips can help make their style shine for a formal occasion. If you have a crop or a pixie cut, you can slick it back. Use products to add dramatic shine to this formal hairstyle. Side swept bangs are another option for short hair.

    2. Wedding season is in full fling. As a hair and makeup artist one thing my bride always asks for is a different and fresh look for their bridesmaids’ hair, and that’s what I do best. This article shows great and new looks for today’s bridesmaid. Out with the hold and boring updo and in with the new side bun, braided bun (my favorite)…etc.
