From glamorous to understated, sleek to wavy, we've got your big day covered

Looking for the perfect bridesmaid hairstyles for you - or your mate's big day? Well look no further. In the gallery above, we've collated some of the most on-trend and modern bridesmaid hairstyle ideas to compliment your chosen gowns.

On your big day you want everything to be perfect - the venue, your dress, the cake, the ceremony, the party and most definitely your wedding hairstyles. And that definitely includes your lovely bridesmaids hair, too. Whether your wedding is a glamorous event, an understated ceremony or a boho chic beach affair, there's a style for all, you just need to find the right one.

For versatility, try a half up, half down approach, which can look super sophisticated as well as laid-back, depending on the texture of your bridesmaids hair or embrace our summer favourite hairstyle, braids, which can add a touch of softness to a look when worn wispy, as well as amp up the drama when worn tight and sleek.

Wedding hair accessories never go amiss either. A simple headband can take an otherwise understated blow dry to the next level, while a cutely printed scrunchie can turn a sleek ponytail into a sweet bridesmaid hairstyle, worthy of the big day. And if it's glamour you're going for, don't slight the power of glossy curls. Worn with a side part, they'll give any look a retro red carpet vibe.
