French plaits are timeless, but they’re also kind of old news. So instead, we’re looking at the more unusual and striking braids that can be incorporated into bridesmaids’ hair when they’re going with a half-up, half-down look. 

Fishtail Braids

This hairdo has a real ‘boho’ feel to it, making it perfect for vintage-styled weddings. Use the top part of your hair to create the fishtail, allowing for the rest of your locks to hang loosely. Curls are sure to work best for this look, and it’s one that can be easily spruced up with the right flowers or a bejeweled hair piece.

Half Up Halo Braid

While we’re used to the halo braid making use of all our hair, why not change things up a bit with a style that combines both a classic and modern feel? This half-up, half-down style looks best with wavy hair of a medium to long length, and works beautifully with any hair colour.

Times Two Dutch Braids

 This hairstyle is a great way to turn a plaited hairdo into something spectacular. Allow for a pair of braids to cascade down a head of curls for a look that’s perfect for standing on the alter beside your gal! The best part about this style is that it gently pulls the hair away from the face so there will be minimal fiddling.

While hair trials are entirely necessary for the bridal party, it’s important to find someone you trust to achieve your desired looks on the day.
