Braided hairstyles

Braids hairstyles can be a classic, chic look for the maid of honor. If you think braided hair looks a little old-fashioned, be creative about it.

Tips: Some updo variations that you may want to explore: (1) French twist; (2) Updos with bangs, (3) Curly updos.

Flowing Waves

Waves can accentuate any dress style and are suit for any time of the year. Flowing waves, whether they incorporate your natural wavy-hair texture or are styled using a three-barrel waver are a great look for any maid of honor. Before styling, create a deep side part in your hair for dramatic effect. If your hair has a natural wave or curl in it, enhance it with a product meant to add texture or curl. If you don't have a natural wave or curl to your hair, use a type of curling iron to fake a wavy style. A flower tucked into one side of this hairstyle creates a beautiful accent to this look.

Dramatic and Straight

Dramatic and straight hair is still a popular hairstyle for many maids of honor. Wear a very straight hair-down hairstyle by making your hair super straight with the tips trimmed into layers. Accessorize with flowers as well for a more appealing look.
