25 Pretty Hairstyles for Short-Haired Bridesmaids
Honestly, there’s no better role to play in a wedding than bridesmaid. You have the perfect excuse to get all dressed up, snap selfies all night, and get in on the photo booth action without any of the pressure of, ya know, commiting the rest of your life to someone. To have the most fun possible and help the bride with anything that might come up, we love short, effortless hairstyles on bridesmaids. Ahead, 25 ways to style your hair on your BFF’s big day (as for your bridesmaid dress, we wish you luck).
Nina Dobrev’s Glitzy Lob
Dobrev’s voluminous waves set throughout her cropped style look gorgeous on their own, but the addition of a glitzy hair accessory takes it up a notch. Not to mention the star-shaped clips, placed at the temple, are just what you need to keep your hair out of your face on the dance floor.
Janelle Monáe’s Embellished Pixie
If your cute pixie cut has you feeling a bit uninspired, you might be overthinking it. Dressing it up is as simple as sliding on an embellished hairband á la Janelle Monáe.
Kelly Osbourne’s Hair Stickers
It’s no secret that hair accessories are seriously trending right now, and most take on the bigger-is-better approach. However, Osbourne’s barely-there, star-shaped hair stickers make a case for the less-is-more.
Lucy Hale’s Half-Up Bob
Never underestimate the power of a half-up style. Hale’s pin-straight bob is chic on its own, but pulling the top section into a bun and dressing it up with a handful of shiny hair pins makes it wedding-day ready.
Selena Gomez’s Wet Look
If there’s one thing that can make a collarbone-grazing cut look even more sultry, it’s styling it in a shiny, wet look. A deep side part with a flip at the end feels completely polished and is sure to go with any bridesmaid dress.
Kiernan Shipka’s Braided Fauxhawk
If you’re in search of an edgy approach to your short cut, look no further than this gorgeous braided fauxhawk. It’s as easy to recreate as a simple French braid, but the added volume and texture will make wedding guests wonder who is part of your glam squad.
