Choosing a hairstyle for Bridesmaids

Getting married is a fantastic event that you have probably dreamed about for many years. When the time finally comes for you to plan your own wedding, you are going to have more things to consider than you ever thought you would. One of these things is the way that your bridesmaids are going to look – which includes their hairstyles.


When you are choosing a hairstyle for your bridesmaids, there are several things that you want to think about and consider.  First of all, your bridesmaids are meant to complement you. You have probably chosen dresses that look good with your own dress, and that look good on the girls. You want to choose hairstyles in the same way. You need to pick hairstyles that are practical, that look good on each of the girls, and that match each other or go well with each other. You also need to think about the style of the dress and how well the hairstyle will go with it. Lastly, you need to think about your own hair style, and make sure that the styles of your bridesmaids match what yours will be.

Practical and Good Looking

Like choosing bridesmaid dresses, you need to choose hairstyles with the words practical and good looking in mind.  You want the hairstyles of your bridesmaids to be practical. You want them to enjoy the day as much as you do, so you don’t want them to have to worry about a fancy do that doesn’t feel right or that hurts them, or that is apt to fall down halfway through the day.  You also want to keep in mind how the style you have chosen will look on each girl, and make sure that you have picked one that looks great on all girls, no matter what their hair type is or how long it is. Remember that it is important that each of your bridesmaids looks good and feels good in their dress and their hairstyle.

Match Each Other

It is not always important to have all of the bridesmaids have the exact same style, but it is important that they all match each other.  If the styles you have chosen compliment each other, you can allow your bridesmaids to choose which one of them that they would like. You can also have a different style for the maids with long hair and a different style for those with short hair. Just be sure that the styles go well together and match each other as much as possible.

Look At The Dress

Remember that the girls are going to be wearing a bridesmaid dress, so you need to be sure that the hairstyle matches the dress. If the dress is formal, you want your hair styles to be formal as well. If the dress is casual, then the hairstyles should be casual too.  You want a hairstyle that matches the dress but that is also complementing the dress. For instance, if the dress has a collar and sleeves, a style where the hair is mostly down might not look as good.  If the dress is strapless, the girls might be able to wear part of their hair down.  You want to be sure that no matter what the dress style is, the hairstyle matches.  Your hair dresses will know which styles go with what dresses, so you should take her advice when you are planning the hairstyles of your bridesmaids.

Think About Your Hair

Lastly, you need to make sure that the bridesmaids have a hairstyle that matches you.  Many brides like to have their bridesmaids in a style that mimics theirs, but is not as fancy as theirs is. Remember that the bridesmaids should complement you, therefore their styles should be subdued compared to what yours are, and yours should always be the most fancy.  However you want your style to match theirs, so see if you can mimic it without having it be more fancy then your own.

The overall idea of bridesmaid hairstyles should be a style that compliments the bride and makes her look even better. Therefore, you want to think carefully about the styles that you have chosen to be sure that they do this. You also want to be sure that the bride is not overshadowed, and that your own hairstyle looks good with theirs. Remember, lastly, that it is important for everyone to feel comfortable and beautiful. If you keep this in mind, you should have a great style that everyone will love.
