Side Bun

Side buns have always been in fashion and will look fashionable on brides and bridesmaids alike. It can be worn on curly, textured or straight hair. If there are two bridesmaids, they can wear their buns on alternative sides that will give a great symmetry in the photos with the bride. You can also add sparkly hair grips to add bling or dazzle.

The side bun can be paired with a one-shouldered bridesmaid dress, and ask the stylist to style it on the opposite side to the shoulder to balance the look. This look is great for a variety of textures of hair and can be considered if the bridesmaids have a different color of hair.
