    Wedding Hair Styles

    Bridesmaids, bridesmaids, bridesmaids . . . this is your season to shine!

    Bridesmaids hairstyles are a topic of interest at the majority of hair salons this time of year. The wedding hair styles that are chosen by the bride and bridesmaids, in conjunction with the bridal gown and bridesmaids dresses, largely help to complete the theme of the wedding. We asked professional hairdressers to share with us the most popular bridesmaids hairstyles this season which could go with plus size bridesmaid dresses. Here is what they told us are the most widespread trends for bridesmaids hairstyles today!

    Bridesmaids Hairstyles – The chignon

    The chignon was at the top of the list! And it’s no wonder the chignon wins out; the chignon is a classic bridesmaids hairstyle, and it tops the charts as the celebrity hairstyle of choice at this year’s top red carpet events. The chignon can be styled to be exact and polished or to have a more comfortable loose look. It only follows that the chignon, and its many variations, tops the list for brides and bridesmaids hairstyles this year! Spring fashion show catwalks, here and across the pond, showed variations of high chignons, low chignons, polished chignons, braided chignons, mussed chignons, chignons with bangs, no bangs or side bangs.

    Here’s an at-home how-to version of the chignon you can do, but for the wedding, have a professional hairdresser style your hair! It’s best to find a hairdresser some months ahead of time. Bring in some pictures you have in mind and have them do a trial run so there are no surprises on the day of the wedding. Although a chignon is an easy bridesmaids hairstyle to do, to get it perfect, beautiful, and secure enough to withstand a full day of photos and excitement, have a professional hairdresser do it for you.

    • Blow-dry hair smooth
    • Divide hair down the middle in back and comb through
    • Tie the two halves together with one loop (in lower middle back or lower side)
    • Twist one side around and secure with pins
    • Twist other side around and secure with pins

    Bridesmaids Hairstyles – The half updo

    If it’s good enough for a Royal Princess Kate Middleton, and her maid of honor Pippa Middleton, it’s good enough for us! The half up-do is the perfect mix of femininity and sophistication. This hairstyle works well with any bridesmaids dress neckline and every face shape can wear a half up-do!

    Bridesmaids Hairstyles – The side ponytail

    The low side ponytail is a perfect hairstyle for a casual or formal wedding. Carrie looks picture perfect with this side ponytail and drop earrings. A deep side part with long side-swept bangs and just a small tendril on the opposite side to add balance looks beautiful. Be sure to have your hair in top-notch condition with plenty of shine.

    If you are a bridesmaid, looking for just the right bridesmaid’s hairstyle to wear this year, the hairdressers are telling us it’s . . . the classic chignon! For more great looks check out our Pinterest Wedding Hairstyles, Prom Hairstyles and Braid Boards.

    2. My sister is getting married within the next year and I really love the the side pony tail look for the bridesmaids! I think it is very simple but yet very beautiful! As the maid of honor in my sister’s wedding, I would love to wear my hair like this!
