Beautiful Bridesmaids Hairstyles

Getting your bridal look perfected takes time, effort and the right stylist, and it’s no different for the ladies you’ve chosen to stand by your side. Whether you’re a bridesmaid taking care of her own look for a relaxed wedding, or a bride carefully co-ordinating her bridal party, hair and beauty are just as important as the right dress. Finding a style that’s both formal and flattering is the challenge, and with contemporary styles changing so quickly it’s important to get the look spot on for those lasting photos.

Catering to the different looks, shapes and sizes of your bridesmaids when dress shopping can be a nightmare, and unfortunately hair can often be the same if you’re not prepared. Considering all the different hair type and textures, lengths and shades of your best girls together is essential when considering styling, but that’s where your stylist’s expert eye comes in. We believe almost every style can be adapted to each person, making sure that each style comes together for the final look.


Keeping things understated, simple and elegant is the best way to ensure a lasting style that won’t put anyone’s nose out of joint. The simple low bun is ideal, and can be mixed up with wavy texture, natural afro curls or slick and straight hair to make a variety of different impacts. Whether worn at the nape or to the side, why not allow each girl to put her own twist on it? Tie all three looks together with a simple accessory like a jewelled or feathered barrette or clip – a perfect piece of 20s influence that’s back on trend right now.

For something more complex, updos are always a hit. Look to eras gone by for something unique yet tried and true, avoiding styles that are so on trend that they may not age well looking back. Forties and fifties styles are great for a formal occasion, and we love them – why not bring some inspiration photos along to your Regis consultation, where you and your stylist can work to create a new take on an old style?

The most important thing of all is for everyone to feel good, and looking good is a great way to start. Do you have bridesmaids who simply never wear their hair up? Why not consider an elegantly styled down do? Soft curls are always a hit, and ensure that the hair doesn’t overwhelm the whole look. Perfect for a Summer wedding, especially one outdoors or by the sea, a well styled curl can take natural texture and make it just formal enough for the occasion.


A great look to consider is another vintage inspired style, taking cues from Dita von Teese with a coiffed forties wave or brushed curl, giving you all the flattering length your bridesmaids love, while ensuring there’s a definite wow factor from the moment the guests set eyes on the bridal party.
