15 Pretty Bridesmaid Hairstyle Ideas

Long hair don't care? Or top knot chic?
by Andrea fowler

What's not to love about getting all dolled up with your closest friends in the name of a wedding? If you're working with a beauty stylist the day-of, all you have to do is show up with some photo inspiration and kick back. If you're doing  your hairstyle yourself, don't worry—there are plenty of do-able DIY styles!

When thinking about the style you want to bring to the beauty pro (or to replicate yourself) make sure to take the formality of the occasion into consideration, your dress neckline and venue. A slick ballerina bun may be better suited for a formal ballroom than a bohemian outdoor celebration, for example. To get you started with some hairinspo, take a look at some of our favorites bridesmaid hairstyles.
