Wedding hair accessories are a special part of your bridesmaids’ look. They’re a beautiful addition to any outfit really and can often complement the bride too. If you’re wary of the popular (and possibly over-done) flower crowns, there are other spectacular hair accessories to choose from. Here are some of our top picks for bridesmaids to rock on your special day.

Hair slides

From crystal combs to open circle pins and hair slides, it’s so easy to add a touch of vintage glamour to your bridesmaid’s hair. The gold leaf barrette is a popular hair slide for bridesmaids who want to rock a classical Grecian look – and gold is sure to suit a variety of dress colours, too.

Bejewelled headbands

These headbands are traditionally semi-circular Alice bands, taken to a glam tiara-like level. Some headbands wrap around your head and go right over the forehead for a super-feminine, romantic look.

Bows are no longer just for little girls; the modern, bridesmaid-friendly versions are slightly oversized and look best in neutral cream or ivory colours. They make a simple statement to keep hair of all lengths in a chic updo and off the neckline.

Beads and cuffs

For a wedding where hair is slicked back or left to hang down over the spine, a single, chunky hair cuff can be an eye-catching hair tie option. And for dreadlocks, braids and afros, the smaller, bead-like versions look amazing scattered throughout your hair.


Pearl bobby pins

This is a great option if you want to make sure your accessories never over-shadow your hair. These pins are essential for any good (and long-lasting) wedding day look, with the pearl tips adding a subtle touch that’s oh-so-romantic!

retro short hair

Modern or classic, hair-up or hair-down, there’s a perfect accessory to suit your bridesmaids. Let your wedding theme be your guide, and make sure you get input from your trusted girls, too! It’s their hair, after all.
