Bridesmaid Hair


I'm in two weddings this summer and the bridesmaids have been asked to do their own hair for both. I am not talented in the hair-styling department. Most days of the week, my hair is down, or if it's being really disagreeable, I'll put it up in a ponytail, which is why I was so drawn to this tutorial.

My hair is naturally sort of a wavy, curly blend, so I can avoid the whole curling iron portion, and then it just comes down to a side ponytail and lots of bobby pins. I love that the final look is messy, leaving room for imperfection. I'm hoping to do a trial run this weekend.

  1. They really make this look so easy. I'm completely inept when it comes to doing my hair. I have to looks: straight and curly (if I spent 30 minutes with a curling iron). I might be able to pull this one off though -- and I think it's perfect for a bridesmaid.

  4. That is beautiful!!

    I was in a wedding several years ago and the woman pulled my hair back so tight and put so much hairspray in, my head looked like a potato.

    This look is soooo much better! :)

  7. That is adorable. And the ONLY way I like my hair in an updo. I still feel like I could not pull it off though.
