When you're picking the hairstyles for your bridal party it's actually pretty important to have a good idea of what you're doing with your own first (fine, yeah, so it is kind of all about you.) Their hair needs to compliment your own - you guys *will* pull that Pinterest worthy bridal photo - but without taking the attention away from your own.

There's also the decision of whether you go for a solid 'one-look-fits-all' or pick a theme - like braids - and let each bridesmaid run with their individual style based on that. AKA, there's a lotta of thinking to be done. So we've put together 50 of the best bridesmaid hairstyle ideas to get you super inspired.

Half Up Half Down

Half up, half down hair is a versatile look that works for both formal and casual dress styles. This style is one of the prettiest options for bridal hair, and it's great for the evening too, as it means hair is off the face, yet still flowing and romantic.

Side Swept

Simple and very effective! Side swept waves work beautifully for bridesmaids. It adds a touch of old Hollywood glamour, which is always a good look. So if you are going for curly hair look, whether it's structured vintage waves or looser, beachy waves be sure to sweep it to the side. This look works perfectly with boobtube dresses or one shoulder dresses.
