The hairstyles are, in a sense, the cherry on top. They'll hold the power to ensure that the entire aesthetic of your bridal party is as the bride wanted
Whether the bridal party envisions a copy-and-paste look among the girls or a harmonious blend of styles, we've done the groundwork to bring you the 15 must-have bridesmaid hairstyles for 2024. 
We understand that hair might not be the initial focal point on that 100-page wedding checklist, but when those pictures are taken, you'll appreciate the effort invested in crafting these unforgettable moments. 
After all, a wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime (here’s hoping) occurrence, and don’t you want to be remembered for picking out the best styles? We thought so.
1. Classic updo with a twist 
You can't go wrong with a classic updo, but why not add a modern twist? Literally. Incorporate some elegant twists into the updo to add a touch of sophistication and a hint of playfulness. This one’s for the longer hair girlies, but if you want to go with this look and your hair is on the shorter side—we’ve got you covered. Our Luxury Length Hair Extensions can do all the work. With 12-18 inches to play with, your hairdresser will have no problems giving you an updo. 
2. Boho chic braids 
Boho themed wedding? Embrace the Bohemian spirit with a boho braided crown. This whimsical hairstyle beautifully blends the greenery trend with laid-back charm, ensuring your bridesmaids' look as part of the big day as the decorations. If they want to be that little bit different from one another, then add a bit of greenery or flowers to the braids, and ramp up the boho effect altogether.
3. Sleek low bun
If there was anything that 2023 taught us, it’s that Sofia Richie is our IT girl. For the ‘quiet luxury’ theme that funnels through everything in life right now, opt for a sleek low bun. This style screams sophisticated Insta-girlie and complements every kind of bridesmaid dress. This one’s a goodie; you may want to have your bridal hair like it—but we’ll that up to you.
4. Half-up half-down waves
Achieve the perfect balance between formal and relaxed with the classic half-up half-down bridesmaid hairstyle. Add some soft waves for a touch of romance that pairs beautifully with any wedding theme. Suffering from loss of volume and can only dream of thickness like this? Try our Full Volume Toppers. They'll fix all your thickening woes. 
5. Messy chignon
Look at us being all fancy. Chignon just means messy bun in French—and if there is anything the French do right, it’s the perfectly imperfect tousled bun. This effortlessly chic hairstyle gives a relaxed charm, making it an excellent choice for a Bohemian or rustic-themed wedding.
6. Sophisticated ponytail
How to make a ponytail elevated, you ask? Well, a sleek pony, of course. The humble ponytail adds a polished look to any bridesmaid who is looking for elegance and their face card to do the talking. This sleek and streamlined style is perfect for a modern and refined bridal party look. Want to go all out? Then get the hairstylist to add some extensions to the hair tie. Then that 18-inch pony will be swishing all night long. 
7. Braided low bun
Quiet luxury but add *a little spice*. Combine the classic low bun with intricate braids for a hairstyle that's both timeless and on-trend. The braided low bun adds a touch of texture and visual appeal to your bridesmaids' overall look, that wants to be a little ahead of the trends than the regular sleek low bun. 
8. Romantic floral accents
We’ve touched on florals for boho-chic, but this is for the lover-girl-era weddings. Boost any hairstyle with the addition of romantic floral accents. Whether incorporated into braids, updos, or loose waves, floral details bring a touch of whimsy and natural beauty to your bridal party. P.S. It’s perfect if you’re a Swiftie—It's a love story, baby, just say, "Yes"
9. Vintage-inspired victory rolls  
If there was anything that the era of Elvis Presley taught us, it’s that they knew how to make a statement—big hair, everywhere. Channel that retro glamor with vintage-inspired victory rolls. This bold and distinctive hairstyle adds a dose of old Hollywood charm, perfect for bridesmaids who love a touch of nostalgia.
10. Side-swept parting
The side part is back, and it demands attention. Opt for timeless elegance with a side-swept hairstyle. Whether it's loose waves, an updo, or a sleek bun, sweeping the hair to one side creates a look that's both glamorous and flattering—and if it’s good enough for Margot Robbie, then it’s good enough for us. 
11. Tousled beach waves
Bring a relaxed and carefree vibe to your bridal party with tousled beach waves. Effortlessly chic, this hairstyle is perfect for beach weddings or outdoor celebrations. If you need a boost, then trying a lace front human hair wig will help with this. Tousle and curl to your heart's content, while keeping your hair free from harm–perfect, 
12. Textured pixie cut
Googled ‘shorthair bridesmaid styles’? Well, this one’s for you. For bridesmaids with short hair, embrace that textured pixie cut, and don’t go adding extensions for the sake of it. You’re in the ‘old money bob’ era, so this wedding season is all about you. Wear your hair curled out at the ends for extra bounce or try the quiet luxury bun. The best bit? You get the best of both worlds no matter what you do.
13. Braided top knot
Combine the chicness of a half-up half-down with the intricacy of a braid. The braided top knot is a stylish and practical choice, keeping hair off the face while adding a touch of Bohemian charm. This fusion hairstyle works exceptionally well with various hair textures, offering a timeless and fashionable option for the entire bridal party. 
The added bonus? It's a look that transitions seamlessly from the ceremony to the reception, ensuring your hair is out of your face all night long—no matter how many shots in you are.
14. The perfect blowout 
Sometimes, simplicity speaks volumes, and nothing encapsulates that sentiment quite like a classic blowout. Embrace the elegance of a fresh blowout, but with a twist inspired by the iconic 90s supermodel look. To achieve this timeless style, request your stylist to use rollers, adding a touch of vintage glamor to your hair. 
The result? A head-turning look that combines modern chic with a nod to the fashionable past. Don't be surprised if the pictures of this 90s-inspired blowout become the highlight of the wedding album—they're worth it!
A classic blowout is known for its versatility, offering a sleek and polished finish. It enhances the natural beauty of your hair while providing volume and movement. Drawing inspiration from 90s supermodels adds a touch of nostalgia and glam to the classic blowout. The 90s were characterized by voluminous, bouncy hair, often achieved with the use of rollers. Incorporating this twist creates a fusion of modern chic and vintage allure.
15. Statement hair accessories
Not exactly a hairstyle, but a choice in hair accessories can be the defining touch that completes the entire look. Whether it's crystal-encrusted pins, delicate headbands, or vintage combs, the right accessory adds a touch of personalization and elegance to each bridesmaid's hairstyle. In 2024, we're all about bows—opt for chic bows of varying sizes to stay on-trend and elevate your ensemble. 
The more bows, the better, as they effortlessly blend timeless elegance with contemporary flair. Bows, with their versatile nature, can be incorporated into various hairstyles, providing a chic and on-point appearance, and enhancing the overall aesthetic of the bridal party. This will be your own Pinterest board in the making. Mark our words.
