These hairstyles will make you look elegant and beautiful without showing up your friend so check out these bridesmaid hairstyles!
1. Bridesmaid Braided Updo
Braids are a gorgeous way to make your hair look a little more dressed up without it being too much. With braids draped behind your head, you’ll be keeping the hair out of your face and the bun will make your hair look formal but not overpower the bride.
2. Bridesmaid Waterfall Braid Hairstyle
Here’s another braided hairstyle if you’re a bridesmaid. Making a waterfall braid will allow you to keep it a little bit more casual but still fancy. Curling or straightening your hair will give your hair texture and be the perfect accent to the braid.
3. Bridesmaid Twisted Crown Hairstyle
The best thing about this twisted crown hairstyle is that it doesn’t take long to achieve. However, it still looks presentable and gorgeous without a lot of effort.
4. Bridesmaid Fishtail Updo
This updo is similar to the first hairstyle, but it takes to another level with fishtail braids. Fishtail braids somehow end up looking a little bit more formal and polished than regular braids. That’s why this updo would be perfect to wear if you’re a bridesmaid.
5. Curly Bridesmaid Hairstyle
If the bride isn’t wearing her hair in curls, no reason you can’t! These curls are gorgeous and almost have a Victoria Secret model vibe. If you have the chance, wear your hair like this because it makes your hair look voluminous and super gorgeous.
6. Bridesmaid Ponytail Hairstyle 1
There’s no rule about not wearing your hair in a ponytail to a wedding, is there? If there is, then this hairstyle is the one expectation. A side-swept ponytail with curled hair will make you look formal and keep your hair in one place for the entire wedding most likely. Plus there’s a lot of different ways you could customize this ponytail to make it your own.
7. Bridesmaid Ponytail Hairstyle 2
Here’s another variation of the ponytail hairstyle. Instead of sweeping your ponytail to the side, add some volume around your crown area before pulling your hair up and curling it. Your hair will look gorgeous in no time and you’ll still only be rocking a ponytail all night.
8. Braided Flower Hairstyle
This hairstyle is pretty simple if you’re not great at doing your own hair, are running out of time or if the wedding has an outdoor them or is outdoors. The steps are relatively simple and will turn your hair from drab to fab in a matter of minutes.
9. Bridesmaid Hairstyle For Short Hair

11. French Fishtail Braid Hairstyle
