Bridesmaids don’t have many options as to what they wear or how they wear it. And while we understand that the bride has final say on pretty much everything, there is absolutely nothing wrong with “helping” her out by sending a few bridesmaid hairstyles her way. To help you help the bride, we’ve compiled the chicest wedding hairstyles via Pinterest that might just inspire (read: influence) her decision.

Be it a classic french braid or a braid within a braid, pretty plaits are a romantic hairstyle worthy of any special occasion.
Use your hair texture and a little bit of Bumble and bumble Thickening Full Form Mousse ($30), to create a voluminous dreamy hairstyle as seen above.
A tousled updo is the epitome of romantic tresses. Keep this perfectly un-perfect bun in place with a flexible hold hair spray like R+Co Outerspace Hairspray ($29).
Make a subtle yet chic statement with this knotted low bun. Add a spritz of shine with Vernon Francois Dazzling Spritz Shine Spray ($24) for an even more elegant look.
You can never go wrong with a braid, no matter the different hair textures of your wedding party.
This elegant ponytail is a must for long-haired maids. Keep this twist-pony hybrid in place with Goody Slide-Proof Bobby Pins ($4).
This twisted bun is different enough to be intriguing, yet not too different that it will look dated in 10 years time.
Simple and elegant, a twisted half-back hairstyle will never go out of style. To make this half-up, half-down style extra special, add an accessory like Ben-Amun Crystal Deco Hair Clip ($220).
This voluminous updo is the perfect wedding hairstyle for curly haired girls. Before twisting your locks into this whimsical bun, tame frizz with Moroccan Oil Curl Defining Cream ($34).
Not quite a bun nor free-flowing tresses, this whimsical updo is a must for a bohemian wedding. To ensure wavy tresses, use a sea salt spray like Ouai Wave Spray ($12).
A low ballerina bun is a classic bridesmaid style for obvious reasons. Both simple and chic, this hairstyle is a must-send to the bride-to-be.
Turn a simple bun into a masterpiece with a sleek metallic hair tie like Oribe Geometric Gold Plated Metal Pony ($65).
Have a busy neckline or a low back dress? Keep the hair simple, and rock a low bun with a face-framing braid.
