Off-Center Part

Settle your part somewhere just off the center of your head and tuck your half up-do at a low angle for an elegant look.

Voluminous Ponytail

This hairstyle is the definition of “business in the front, party in the back.” Smooth down your hair and pull it back to a low ponytail, letting your natural texture to come through.

Slicked Back Bun

Not only is a sleek bun completely timeless, but it’ll seriously snatch your face—no face lift or temporary tape needed.

Simple Ponytail

A ponytail ensures that you’ll be ready to help the bride with whatever she may need on her big day. loosely curl the ends to dress up this usually casual look.


Embrace your natural texture by fluffing out your curls and pulling back one side into a tight, smaller detail braid.

High Half-Up Ponytail

For girls with short hair, you can add the illusion of length by hiking your half-up ponytail to the top of your head. Hair stylist Justine Marjan also curled Ashley Tisdale’s locks and added a ribbon for a playful vibe.

Cornrows and Fingerwaves

For a protective, glamorous hairstyle, take a cue from Vernon Francois, who sculpted Amandla Stenberg's braids into fingerwaves and a low bun.


It doesn’t take much for this hairstyle to look beautiful walking down an aisle. Keep your fine hair straight and allow your bangs to gently rest on your forehead to create this gorgeous bob.

Long French Braids

Janelle Monáe proves that a casual hairstyle can look seriously fancy with the right styling. Her hair is divided into three sections and braided back all the way down for some seriously impactful waist-length braids.

Air-Dried Curls

Who says you can’t air-dry your hair before a wedding? This model proves that with a little bit of texture spray and hair oil, your natural curls can look beautiful and sophisticated.

Piecey Layers and Blunt Cut

If you’re looking for ways to switch up your short cut, ask for heavy, piece-y layers and a blunt cut on the bottom. This will give you a ton of dimension in your hair without having to do too much styling.

Long Waves

The loose waves trend doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere for a bit, and bridesmaids with really long hair—or those with extensions for the wedding day—can shine like Desi Perkins.

Messy Natural Bun

Embrace your natural texture with a messy bun like this. The added fringe gives a soft youthfulness to the style, and the updo will show off some killer earrings.

Go dramatic but short with thick, straight bangs cut above your eyebrows and end your bob at your jawline.

'70s blowout

Channel your inner ‘70s babe with this Farrah Faucett-inspired look. Keep your fringe-y bangs straight around your forehead, part your hair at the center, and blow out your face-framing layers with some serious volume.

Messy Chignon

Want an updo that doesn’t look uptight? Try out this take on a chignon by pulling out some pieces to frame your face. Mariah Leonard also pulled out some pieces at the back of her head so that her hair wouldn’t lie flat against her head to create a really thrown-together (but still gorgeous) look.

Bouncy Curls

Nothing says “dance the night away” quite like a full head of bouncy curls. Jackie Aina’s hair looks fun and party-ready—exactly how a bridesmaid should feel.

Layered Braids

Let your highlights shine through with this stacked braided updo. It allows you to see the dimension of your color, and the braids look beautifully chic. Adorn the style with a bejeweled hair band to add a little more glitz.

Blown Out Locks

Keep your bridesmaid hairstyle simple by blowing it out into soft curls. The effect is a simple, but dreamy style that can complement any dress style

Long French Braid

For bridesmaids with long hair, try a loosened up french braid for a more easygoing vibe. Add a little extra drama with some plants, flowers, or dainty jeweled threads.


This bride is all smiles with her natural hair pulled back into a half-up ‘do. She added some volume at the crown to give her hair some height.

Dramatic Curls

Go for ultimate drama with these massive curls. To keep your hair in place before the ceremony, make sure you pin the curls in place to set while they cool.

Half-Up Fishtail

Sometimes, the best hairstyles are the simplest. Pull your hair into a half-up ponytail and add a fishtail braid with waves.

Rosette Waterfall

For a style with killer aisle impact, the hair is sculpted into five distinct rosettes cascading down the model’s back and ornamented with small gemmed clips.

Rapunzel Vibes

Though you’d need some seriously long hair (or a ton of extensions) to put together this woven hairstyle, the end result is seriously beautiful. Why not add a few sprigs of baby’s breath flowers?

Middle-Parted Wavy Locks

Perfect for balayage hair, this effortless style is beautiful on both brides (as pictured here) and bridesmaids alike. Part your hair down the middle and wave the bottoms with a 1.5-inch iron away from your face to get the look.

Chunky Braid

Start a thick braid at the very top of the head and continue it all the way over to one side so it falls over your shoulder. It will pair nicely with a one-shoulder silhouette.
