Pigtails aren’t just for little girls! We’ll show you 2 ways to wear the look for an updo that’s playful, yet remains elegant and grown up.
It’s a popular trend to look back on previous decades for bridal hair inspiration. However, many of these styles may seem a little dated – unless vintage is totally your thing – especially to the modern-day trend-setters among us! Here are some ultra-glam and fashion-forward styles for your best girls to wear on your special day.
If you have relaxed hair, this hairstyle will maximise your straight, silky locks. This style has long, side swept bangs with curled ends that can be pinned behind your ear for a half-up-half-down style. To keep with the wedding occasion, secure with a jewelled hair slide or subtle pearl-tipped pins to add a touch of elegance.
Natural hair lovers, you can keep your hair short and loosen your coils slightly for some super-cute bouncy curls. This hairstyle is perfect for showing off an embellished or gold leaf headband and is beautifully feminine while subtle enough not to overshadow the bride.
Unleash your inner Nubian Queen with this one! Twisted faux-hawk hairstyles are popular updos, and they’re achievable with all types of hair. The sculpting is highly stylised and makes for a great canvas for jewelled headpieces.
This chic style is made with an oversized braid, plaited from the forehead and down the sides to the nape, with the ends twisted into a low bun. Add a touch of wedding-day magic to this style by having a ribbon woven into the hair as an alternative to wearing hair jewellery.
Take advantage of dreadlocks’ unique stretchiness and awesome length by twisting them into an epic tower bun. Dreadlocks are incredibly strong for holding and twisting, even without a hair tie. Once the tower is stacked as high as it can go, dot it with gold beads to elevate it into a beautiful, bridesmaid-worthy style.
An afro is the perfect canvas for embellishing your hair with large statement pieces to complement its volume. For bridesmaids, keep the afro pinned up and off the neck, with flowers or wedding hair jewellery for a natural hippie-chic look.
No matter what style you choose, keep the hairstyles modern by opting for unique and striking hair jewellery to complement your ‘do. Before the big day, don’t forget to consult your trusted hairstylist, who is trained to make your chosen hairstyles work with the texture of each bridesmaid’s hair.
