If you love a simple and classic look, there’s no reason to style your hair in a fancy way for your bestie’s wedding.

Medium-length hair that falls at or above the collarbone can easily be styled by simply curling the ends up, leaving a middle part, and adding a rhinestone hairpin on the side. 

This type of bridesmaid hairstyle looks beautiful with her soft makeup palette and high neckline on her dress. It’s a demure and sophisticated look for your bridesmaids.

2. Romantic Curls with Pink Rose For Black Bridesmaid

As an African American bridesmaid, you can rock your natural curls on the wedding day. We love this look!

This medium-length natural curly hairstyle falls just below the shoulder and looks fun and flirty with an oversized pink rose behind the ear on one side and with colorful baby’s breath flowers around the rose and across the top of the head.

It’s a romantic bridesmaid hairstyle for African American women that’s perfect for a garden or outdoor wedding.

3. Long Bob Hairstyle With Oversized Flower Crown

Another look that’s perfect for garden or outdoor weddings is this long bob with a beautiful oversized flower crown.

A mix of a boho, ethereal look with a soft and subtle look from the simplicity of keeping the medium-length hair down is a stunning look for any bridesmaid.

The bottom of her bob creates an effortless soft curl like when your hair gets windblown at the beach. It’s a simple bridesmaid hairstyle with a boho vibe that’s easy to achieve and manage. 

4. Side-Parted Low Bun for Bridesmaids

When deciding what type of bridesmaid hairstyle to wear, one thing you need to consider is the dress’s neckline.

A bridesmaid dress that has thick straps and an updo is the best choice because it allows the beauty of the dress to be seen.

For this bridesmaid, a messy loose bun is the perfect choice. We love how her hair is swooped over from a chic side part with a little volume on top; then, the back is rolled and twisted into the loose, low, side bun creating a sophisticated yet ever so effortless look.

5. Short Bob With Flower Crown

This bridesmaid hairstyle has a life and personality of its own. Her hair is thick, black, voluminous, and oh-so-pretty styled by simply curling it under and adding a stunning floral crown with greenery and soft pastel blooms. 

Because her bob hairstyle is a collarbone length, it looks beautiful with her v-neck bridesmaid dress.

6. Red Hair With Side Part & Curls
