Your bridal look should capture who you are, your style and sensibilities, and showcase a more polished version of you. Similarly, your bridesmaids should also look and feel their best on your wedding day. Bridal party trends have shifted a lot over the years from clones of each other to individualised looks that capture their unique personalities. Think mix and match bridesmaids dresses, colours and bridesmaids hairstyles.
From a practical perspective, what might look beautiful on one bridesmaids may not suit the personality or body shape of another bridesmaid.
We’ve pulled together our favourite bridesmaids hairstyles which we know they’ll love. Scroll below for our favourite loose wavy hairstyles, ponytails, half up hairstyles and romantic updos. Mix and match or pick a favourite!
1. LOOSE WAVY HAIRSTYLES FOR BRIDESMAIDS
From boho chic to polished and formal, loose wavy hairstyles feel effortless and romantic. Long loose waves suits all bridesmaid dress necklines and frames all face shapes beautifully. Your bridesmaids don’t need to have long hair to pull off this look either. All out hair that’s been softly curled works beautifully in short, medium and long hair lengths.
We love this look for beach weddings, garden nuptials and formal affairs.

2. PONYTAILS FOR BRIDESMAIDS
For modern maidens, a ponytail is the perfect hairstyle for fashion forward bridal parties. Not blessed with luscious long hair? No worries – consider hair extensions for some instant length.
If you’re looking to give your bridesmaids a gift to show them how much you adore them, perhaps some statement dangly earrings might be the perfect finishing touch to their bridesmaids looks.

3. HALF UP HAIRSTYLES FOR BRIDESMAIDS
Half up hairstyles are functional, beautiful and versatile. They suit a range of face shapes, hair lengths and have the added benefit of keeping strands of hair off their faces.
A half up half down hairstyle provides the perfect foundation to tuck in fresh flowers or a delicate hair comb or hair pin. If you’d love to capture a more organic vibe, think baby’s breath or a beautiful spray of green foliage for a look that’s natural and bohemian inspired.
