Bridesmaids Hair Down Styles for Any Type of Wedding

This collection of bridesmaid hair down styles for girls with longer hair, short hair or shoulder-length locks will help your girls shine on your wedding day. We have scoured the socials, and all our real wedding archives for the best inspiration for your most important girls.

Clearly the hairstyle that both you, and your girls opt for depends on hair type, length and personal taste. But your bridesmaids may also want to consider the style, season and vibe of your wedding. As such, we’ve got bridesmaids hair down styles aplenty that will work for a variety of celebrations. Be it a beach wedding, a city occasion or boho spring nuptials.

If you want all of your bridesmaids to have the same style, let them know what you’re thinking, and it’s best you budget a hairstylist for your wedding day to make sure you achieve a consistent look. However, it’s very chic, and flattering to go with mismatched hairstyles for your bridal party so that everyone can feel most comfortable and look their best. These hair down styles, we have picked, will help all bridesmaids, brides, and mothers of brides decide on the best hairstyle for the wedding day beforehand.
