Our Favorite Half-Up Hairstyles for Bridesmaids
Perhaps just as stressful as finding the bride’s dress is tracking down bridesmaids’ dresses that satisfy every girl. Getting over that planning hurdle is a major accomplishment for any bride, but her girlfriends won’t be ready with just a dress. For your bridesmaids’ looks to be complete, they’ll need to discuss shoes, jewelry, makeup options, and hairstyles. Just as every bridesmaid didn’t have the same body type for dress shopping, every bridesmaid won’t have the same type of hair for styling. These half-up looks work for bridesmaids with short, long, medium, curly, or straight hair. These half-up bridesmaid hairstyles can be worn with different variations if your maids are worried about looking the same. Some girls feel “bald” in pictures with up-dos, and others want to do more with their hair than wear it down, so these styles are a perfect compromise. Time to book those wedding day appointments.
