Braids on the bridesmaids
Dec 19th, 2011
When considering hairstyles for the wedding, many women dismiss the idea of using braids because they feel it comes across as juvenile. This is a common misconception that many people have. They associate this hairstyle with their childhood and are afraid they cannot pull it off or if they do, it will appear as if they are trying too hard to be younger. While you may be hesitant with trying out braids, remember: you don’t have to adorn your braids in bows from Claire’s!
You have endless possibilities in incorporating a braid into you or your bridesmaids’ hairstyles for the big day. It is an incredibly versatile element in hair fashion. You can choose from wearing it up, half up, completely down, one braid, two braids, French braid, fishtail, etc., etc. It even has a distinct effect when used for bridesmaids, each girl will have a unifying factor in the braid yet there will be diversity in how each will have their own individual twist on how it’s done to reflect their personal style and vibrant personality.
Check out these styles to get an idea of just how creative you really can be with braids!
