It's Bridesmaid Week here at Bridal Musings, so we've been adding a few posts to our schedule all about the girls who'll stand by your side on your big day.
And today, it's all about the hair!
As with the dresses, you can choose to go as uniform or unique as you like for your bridesmaids' hair.
Some brides love the idea (and ease) of all their girls looking the same lined up in a row, while for others, they'd rather let their friends rock their own looks (especially if your bridesmaids have different hair types or lengths).
The most important thing though is to chat with your friends about how they'd like to wear their hair, and what they'll be most comfortable with.
While you may dream of a line of long mermaid braids or stiff buns, it's not fair to pressure your friends into growing/cutting/dying/straightening their hair for your wedding day vision. Adapt their gorgeous, natural locks into a look you'll both love.
While brides themselves often err on the side of caution with classic style, bridesmaids can be a bit more creative and playful with their looks, with plaits, flowers, pony-tails or half-up styles. Be sure the look you pick is something your hairstylist will have time to do (especially if you have several bridesmaids).
