FAQ: Updo Hairstyles

Bridesmaids should wear their hair up if the wedding is planned to be held outside. Even half-up hairstyles can be dangerous, because all it takes is a gust of wind to spoil a potentially flawless photograph. If you absolutely want your bridesmaids’ hair down, go ahead and plan for it.

Do bridesmaids wear anything in their hair?

Bridesmaids’ hair can be worn up or down. However, this doesn’t mean they all have to be identical. Straight, large wavy curls, or to the side are all options for hair down styles.
