We’ve talked about the predicted bridal trends for 2018 and we’ve given you our top tips for a stress-free wedding dress shopping experience, but today’s feature is one for your best girls.
Your bridesmaids are going to be a huge part of your day and they’ll be by your side every step of the way, through the stresses of the guest list to helping you top up your lipstick on the day itself. You may have spotted our feature on our sister boutique, Flossy & Willow, talking about how you can pull off the mix and match bridesmaid dress trend but today we’re looking towards bridesmaid hairstyles.
We’ve scoured Pinterest, magazines and blogs for the prettiest bridesmaid hairstyles that your team of ‘maids will adore wearing on your wedding day. From boho waves to elegant up-dos, these hairstyles are guaranteed to get your gorgeous girls swooning…
There are a handful of things to think about when choosing the hairstyles for your bridesmaids. Consider the style of gown your girls will be wearing and whether or not it will suit your chosen hairstyle. For instance, if they will be wearing a high neck gown or a dress with lots of lovely detailing around the neckline, a chic up-do will probably be the best choice. Keep it simple and understated so that your ‘maids can really flaunt the divine detail on their dresses! However, if their gowns are fairly simple you may want to go all out with glittering accessories and even a flower crown!
It’s also important to discuss the hairstyles with your best girls to make sure they’re happy to wear it on your big day – there would be nothing worse than your bridesmaids feeling self-conscious and it will show in the wedding photographs. Perhaps ask each bridesmaid to create a Pinterest board of hairstyles that they’d choose for themselves and offer them a hair trial beforehand to ensure they’re completely comfortable with it.
We love everything about the mix and match bridesmaid dress trend, but have you ever considered mixing and matching your bridesmaid hairstyles? It can be difficult to choose one hairstyle that suits all of your girls, especially if you have girls with long hair, short hair, curly hair or straight hair. It’s a near enough impossible job, so it may be worth asking your ‘maids to choose a different hairstyle to wear. Plus, it means they’ll be able to choose something they absolutely adore and there’s nothing better than a happy bridal party.
We adore a romantic -do and gorgeous loose waves, but don’t be afraid to stray away from traditional bridesmaid hairstyles and opt for something ultra-modern. Fishtail plaits are a gorgeous choice for your girls and you can easily add a touch of glamour with a golden hair vine, or keep it boho with a greenery hair vine.
