1. Sweet Flower Girl Hairstyles
As a rule of thumb, always officially ask your flower girls if they want to perform this duty.
Here’s a tip: Send them a card with the question plus a small token such as a necklace or bracelet. They will be thrilled to wear it.
2. Traditional Flower Girl Hairstyle
Traditionally, a flower girl is typically a small girl between the ages of three and ten that is closely related to either the bride or the groom. However, if no such relation exists, she can also be a friend of the family.
3. Flower Girl Hairstyles with Pigtails
This has to be one of the cutest hairstyles for flower girls out there. It pays homage to the girls’ age, seeing as it has two little pigtails on either side of the head.
However, this being a special occasion, the pigtails also have satin ribbons, to make them more elegant.
4. Flower Girl Hairstyles with Headband
You can use the clever trick of the large headband both to dress up your little girl and help keep hair out of her eyes for the duration of the ceremony and party. It’s a very low maintenance hairstyle.
5. Messy Bun Flower Girl Hairstyle
As tradition would have it, the flower girl should be accompanied down the aisle by a little boy called the page boy. As she scatters flower petals, he is the one carrying the wedding rings.
However, if the flower girl is old enough and doesn’t have stage fright, she can walk by herself.
6. High Chignon Flower Girl Hair
This little princess is covered in tulle as she threatens to upstage the bride in her high chignon with a few blonde curls hanging down the back.
Flowers girls are usually dressed in white, the only person besides the bride allowed to wear this color at a wedding.
7. Flower Girls and Pink Roses
Always a traditional choice, pink roses are also very safe. They are everyone’s favorite, and you can bet your little flower girl will adore being decked from head to toe in this lovely shade of pink.
8. Flower Girl with Fishtail Braid
This is a messy fishtail braid with a few strands hanging out that were arranged with some help from a curler.
The braid has baby breath flowers woven all along it as well. However, you should be aware that the little princess might undo it at any moment.
9. Rolled Up Flower Girl Hair
Building on the above, you could also try a hairstyle such as this roll-up, which you can redo yourself at any time. All you need are some bobby pins.
Here’s a tip: Remember to pack some extra flowers as well!
10. Angelic Flower Girl Hairstyles
Even though she’s called ‘the flower girl’, she can carry other things as well if you don’t want petals.
For example, you could go for candy, little bubbles, small balloons, or confetti, which she will spread on the aisle much like she would have spread the flowers.
11. Braided Crown Hairstyle
We can call this hairstyle crown-ception because we have a crown overload here.
This little cutie pie has both a gorgeous natural flower crown and a crown braid made of her own blonde hair which ends in a chignon in the back.
12. Boho Flower Girl Hairstyles
Most flower girls are dressed the same as the bride because they are meant to symbolize her or the way she was when she was a child.
The flower girl spreading petals is meant to represent innocence and youth, and this lovely boho style achieves this in the loveliest fashion.
13. Side Ponytail Flower Girl Hair
It is also believed that the flower girl leads the bride both in a symbolic and literal way, guiding her path from innocence and childhood to womanhood being a married woman and, if she so chooses, a mother.
14. Flower Girl Hairstyles with Plaits
Continuing on the above, that is why there must be a strict order when walking down the aisle.
The bridesmaids will enter first, and then the flower girl, followed by the bride herself, as she needs to lead her into her new life.
15. Elegant Flower Girl Styles
Historians have pinned down the beginnings of this custom to the Ancient Greeks and Romans. They used to have young girls carry herbs and wheat during the wedding.
They symbolized fertility and thought to help the couple procreate. In time, the things they carried changed to flowers.
16. Flower Girl Hairstyles with Beach Waves
Jumping to the Elizabethan era, all people invited to the wedding were responsible with scattering petals all the way from the house of the bride to the church. The flower girls carried rosemary branches covered in gold.
17. High Bun Hairstyles
We got the traditions we’re respecting nowadays from the Victorian Era.
That’s when flower girls started being dressed in white and started carrying a basket full of petals as well as a hoop adorned with flowers.
Its round shape symbolized that love is eternal.
18. Country Flower Girl Hair
When it comes to today’s trends, wedding planners report that brides like to put as many children as possible in their wedding.
Therefore, you have your flower girls, as well as a bunch of other little tots called ‘greeters.’
They simply walk down the aisle before everyone else trying to put the guests in a good mood.
19. Colorful Flower Girl Styles
Modern trends also dictate that your flower girl doesn’t have to be dressed in white anymore either.
You can ask her what color she prefers or match her dress to the decorations. Evidently, her hairpiece will be in the same shade.
20. Adorable Flower Girl Hairdo
Did you know that there’s a trend going on called ‘flower grandmas?’ That’s right. People everywhere are going crazy about having their elders throw flowers petals down the aisle rather than a small girl.

Bows on little girls are one of those eternal hairstyles that will never go out of style no matter what. Nobody can resist a little girl in an oversized satin bow, especially when she’s also dressed in yards of tulle as well.
22. Four Ponytails
This is a fun and childish way to dress up your little girl. It consists of four ponytails spread across her head in a square pattern that remind us heavily of the 90s.
She won’t know that, of course, but it will be a cool reminder for the bride of when she was a little girl in the 90s.
23. Pretty in Pink Flower Girls
A high bun such as this one is incredibly easy to make and looks fantastic. All you need is a hair doughnut and some bobby pins.
In a pinch, you can even use a sock. Look up some YouTube tutorials to find out how!
24. The Loose Fishtail Braid
It’s very important that a little flower girl’s hairstyle be as serviceable as it is pretty. She will have to wear it all day long. Therefore, it has to have a high degree of comfort and she needs to like it a lot.
25. Ponytail Hairstyles
Sometimes, a simple ponytail will do the trick because you need to let the dress do all the talking. When the outfit is this beautiful, there’s really no need to try and upstage it with a complicated hairstyle.
26. Curly Flower Girl Hairstyle
If your little princess has deeply curly hair, a straightforward top knot will do. Use some bobby pins and a headband decorated with a flower in the same color as the dress to secure her hair in place.
27. Afro-Textured Hair Styles
An afro is like a crown in itself when it comes to hairstyles. Therefore, there’s really no need to embellish it further. However, you can try a simple bow to make matters a little more festive for your little girl.
28. Side Braid Flower Girl Hair
The same minimalist rule applies here as well. When the dress is this overwhelming, you have to keep it very simple as far as hair goes.
A simple braid on one side will suffice because the focus here needs to be on the outfit.
29. Flower Girl Hairstyles with Curls
This is a simple hairstyle, but one that may require some maintenance as the day goes by, especially if it’s a hot summer one. Apply a curler to her tresses and the use some kid-friendly hairspray.
30. Pixie Cut Flower Girl Hair
Even if the tot has short hair, it still needs to be styled. Give her a little trendy trim and apply a liberal amount of glossing agent so that she can look her best and like a tiny star on the big day.
31. Flower Girl Hair with Fascinator
If she’s old enough not to toy with it during the ceremony, your flower girl can even wear a fascinator in lieu of a hat. This one even has a small birdcage veil with a very vintage vibe to it.
32. Bob Haircuts for Flower Girls
Styling choices can also reside in the hairpieces you choose for them. These, for example, are two bobs.
One is shoulder-length and the other is a long bob. Both girls are wearing red flower crowns and looking perfectly adorable!
33. Intricate Flower Girl Styles
This one is very reminiscent of pageantry and Miss America in the 80s and 90s. It has a very voluminous and intricate bun which you can obtain by using hair extensions rather than your girl’s natural hair.
34. Side Braided Hairstyles
Here’s a fantastic idea for a dress with a spectacular back. When you have this much lacework going on in the back, there’s no point covering it up! Go for a side bun with a thin three-strand braid instead.
35. Classy Flower Girl Updos
Speaking of hairstyles on the side, here’s a ponytail that has been curled and twisted into perfection. The hair has been swept to one side and the ponytail itself rests perfectly on her little shoulder.
36. Casual and Free Flower Girl Hair
If you’re having a casual, bohemian, beach wedding, there’s no need to style your flower girl with an uptight hairdo.
Dress her up in a festival type of dress and allow her to enjoy herself as the sea breeze blows through her locks.
37. Simple Flower Girl Headbands

Ask your flower girl to help you, you’ll have fun together! It will be a great bonding moment between the two of you which she will never forget.
