As a rule, the bridesmaids should never upstage the bride. All the bridesmaids hair should be thematically the same. Coiffed partially up, down or with a similar thread running through it. To insure the bride is not to be outdone, redundancy with the bridesmaids hairstyles can do the trick. This is not to say the bridesmaids should not look their best, but should never upstage the bride. Sometimes a subltle line of braiding running through the hair oreven a just a simple flower wreath can do the job.
