Your best friend is getting married and of course, you are one of her beloved bridesmaids! Within the upcoming months: bridal conventions are attended, cakes are tested, and she has finally found “the dress”!
Her bridal dress is quickly accompanied with an entourage of the elegant bridesmaid dresses for her wedding. Everything seemed to be smooth until you noticed the bridesmaids start picking at their hair. They start tousling their hair and wrapping it up to see what suits them best, momentarily forgetting that this is the bride’s special day. Uh-oh! This could be trouble.
1. Bridesmaids should try to accommodate the bride’s vision. It is her wedding after all. If you were set on a sculptured updo and the bride was thinking of tousled waves for her dream beach wedding, ask her about a relaxed half-up, half-down hairstyle. The bride wants you to be happy too!
2. When the bride is stuck on what hairstyles to pick for her bridesmaids, help her pick between “updo”, “down” or “half-up”. When in doubt, think of what will look best with the bridesmaid dress. That one element will pull all of the bridesmaids’ looks into a cohesive vision even if each bridesmaid’s hairstyle is a little bit different.
3. Your maid of honor can stand out without taking away attention from the bride by changing small hairstyle details. If all of the bridesmaids will have a vintage-inspired updo, opt for a vintage inspired half-up, half-down hairstyle for the maid of honor.
