Bridesmaids hairstyles–21+ ideas to complement bridal hair


Bridesmaids’ hairstyles may not be the first thing to spring to mind when we think about wedding planning, but they shouldn’t be overlooked. Whether you’re organizing your own big day or assisting with a friend or family’s wedding, bridesmaids’ hairstyles are the next biggest beauty decision after the bride’s hair and make-up.

It goes without saying that these looks should complement, not overshadow, the woman of the hour’s ‘do. Bridesmaids’ hairstyles should be elegant yet unfussy and in keeping with the bride’s chosen aesthetic. Whether you go for hair up styles or half up half down hairstyles, a simple yet special look will ensure a stress-free wedding day for all—and gorgeous photos afterward.

Take one of the most iconic weddings in history, for example, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s big day in 2011. To complement the royal bride’s hair, maid of honor Pippa Middleton’s hair was also worn in a half-up hairstyle, accessorized with flowers alongside the now Duchess of Cambridge’s tiara and veil combo. What’s more, both she and the Duchess of Sussex chose flower crowns for their group of bridesmaids—a particularly popular and sweet choice if those carrying out this special role are younger children.
