So your bestie is getting married, and you’ve been asked to be a bridesmaid. After you’re finished squealing in excitement and gushing over wedding details, it’s time to start planning your style for the wedding day. While some brides prefer their maids to match, others are all for letting their ladies show off some personal style with mismatched dresses and accessories. To help you pick out the perfect ‘do for your bestie’s big day, we’ve got 19 bridesmaid hairstyles for every hair length.
