10 Chic Bridesmaid Hairstyles Anyone Can Do in 15 Minutes or Less
As a laidback bride, we’re fairly certain you’ve surrounded yourself with some similarly laidback ladies. Luckily, there are so many super simple and super chic hairstyles your besties can pull together in 15 minutes or less— we promise!
Pretty Pixie Adornment
Your fearless friends with chopped off locks have it so easy when it comes to bridesmaid hairstyles— just find a pretty headband or barrette and viola! Instant up-do. Metallics add an elegant element while florals would give a boho vibe.
Messy Braided Crown
Braids are a deceptively complicated-looking style that are actually incredibly easy to execute. Since you’re going for a beachy, boho look here anyway, you don’t want anything to look too done or polished.
Undone Low Bun
With some texturizing spray and a few bobby pins, any of your bridesmaids with at least shoulder length hair can achieve this lovely low bun in minutes. It’s chic and elegant and won’t look out of place once a few hairs stray after the first round on the dance floor.
Get maximum impact with minimal effort with this low ponytail. After a blowout and adding some piecey curls, just tease and your set. Wrapping a piece of hair around the hair band is a small touch that immediately elevates this chic and subtle style.
Depending on the vibe of the wedding and your bridemaids’ style, you can make this top knot as sleek or messy as you’d like. Whichever you choose, it’s a romantic, flattering option for any hair type.
For any bridesmaid with hair past her shoulders, a fishtail braid is so simple and totally on trend. Watch a YouTube tutorial or two with her a few days before the wedding to practice; you’ll have it mastered in five minutes. We especially love a side fishtail braid— they look so pretty in photos!
Ask your florist for an extra bloom or two for this retro glam bridesmaid hairstyle. Just add a swipe of red lipstick, curling iron and bobby pin and she’ll be ready to walk down the aisle in minutes.
Sleek High Pony
Watch this helpful YouTube video on how to achieve the perfectly sleek high ponytail. It’s an elevated version of the everyday style but still only takes minutes from start to finish. If you have any bridesmaids with long hair who are wearing a strapless dress, this hairstyle would be a stunning option.
Half Up, Half Down
Here’s another easy-to-follow tutorial for a bridesmaid hairstyle that will make her look put together and polished and allow her to still feel like herself. We like this one for fall and winter weddings since the humidity and heat in the warmer months could make this particular style fall flat.
This is one of those bridesmaid hairstyles that you can’t really mess up— any iteration of it would look intentional and cool. She can even start with day old hair to give it a bit of grit and texture. Beachside ceremony, anyone?
