Your bridesmaids styles depends on the age and hair length of your bridesmaids. And of course, your wedding theme too!
A child from age 6 upwards is more likely to sit still long enough to curl a while headful of hair, so you'll have a fair amount of flexibility with styles. Any child below the age of around 12 is very likely to have a run around or play energetically at some point, so the simpler the style the better! Plaiting is a great option for particularly lively children.
Any half- up hair style is a good way to plan for short bobs to long hair, as their hair is off their face, but no as likely to fall out as quickly as a hairstyle that's all up. The hairband is then a great place for a flower, ribbon or pretty hair clasp.
Your easiest option for all ages below teens is the simple flower garland - it fits like an alice band. To get the best fit, it's a good idea to ask the child's parent for an alice band with a good fit, to give to your florist. Also , be sure to ask for flowers that aren't too heavy, especially on fine hair.
Any child below the age of 5 is quite likely to find the weight of hair accessories quite annoying, so you could explain to their parent that you need the accessory on for the ceremony and the pictures, but they are welcome to remove them after this. Then leave the bribery method up to them!
