First, you will need to grab your trusty curling iron and put some ringlets in your hair. It’s a really good idea to use some heat protection spray, and also do your ringlets in sections if you have thicker hair like I do. After you have finished creating your ringlets, you can start the process of adding volume.

To give your hair the dramatic and vibrant volume we desire, grab a section of hair near your crown and do some back combing. This will separate the hair a bit to add some air pockets and give it some lift. Once you have added volume, mist your hair with some hairspray to make sure that it stays full and keeps its voluminous look.

At this point, you will want to take this section of hair, twist it and pin it at the back of your head. Once the section is pinned, take another section from the left side of your head. Twist it and pin it up against the larger twist you already have pinned. You will repeat this process twice more until the majority of the hair on the left side of your head is pinned up. Once all your hair is pinned, add some accent pins such as fake flowers to round out the look.

Considerations When Choosing Curly Wedding Hairstyles for Bridesmaids

Most people forget to consider all the aspects of the celebration before deciding on a hairstyle. However, there are several key things that you need to remember as you make your selection. First off, the color of your hair will play a big role when balancing the various colors in your theme. Similarly, weather can be a big factor in certain situations; especially if you’re planning an outdoor event. The wrong style can leave you feeling too hot or too cold, and that’s not good on your big day. Lastly, there are actually safety concerns in certain situations. For instance, if you plan on using wedding sparklers, make sure your locks won’t get caught in the sparks. It may sound silly, but open flames combined with long hair and additives like hairspray can be a potentially dangerous combination.

Overall, choosing surly wedding hairstyles for bridesmaids is the most popular and elegant option. Obviously, everyone has their own preferences; but both of these looks are classic styles. Just make sure to try both options and you’ll easily be able to choose between them. I hope you enjoyed this guide, and I look forward to sharing more tips very soon. Good luck!
