When my daughter made her First Holy Communion last year, I spent ages thinking about details like the dress and what food we’d serve afterwards, and I didn’t once think about her hairstyle – that was until every other mother at school started talking about it! I had completely missed the boat on this one, although (luckily!) it transpired that my daughter only wanted to wear her hair down with a “grown up and glittery” hair clip. Phew!

We picked up some very simple diamanté slide clips that were perfect for my daughter’s chosen style – she wanted everything very simple – and then I threaded some baby’s breath flowers in for a little something extra. Quick, easy and surprisingly stress-free…all of which is exactly what you’re looking for on the day.

Communion Hairstyles: What to Consider

Things to consider in the weeks and months in advance of your child’s First Holy Communion include how long (or short) you and your child want her hair to be, and will that length restrict the communion hairstyles you can choose from; also, factor in going for a trim (or more sizeable chop) in advance so her hair is in good condition on First Holy Communion day.

If your daughter would prefer an updo, or a more detailed hairstyle, you will want to arrange a trial with your hairdresser, or have lots of practice sessions at home if you’re doing it yourself. The last thing anyone wants is any fighting, tears or stress on the morning of the communion, leaving no time to get ready.

Similarly, make sure that any hair accessories such as a veil, headpiece, bow or hairband are factored in to your decisions around the style.

To save you some of the last-minute panic I had, here are lots of gorgeous ideas for First Communion hairstyles that will suit short, long and everything in between.

Have fun picking something together – and don’t forget to let us know which one is your favourite!

Headpieces and Hairbands

Flowers are a great option when you are looking for headpieces, using either fresh or artificial flowers. Choose from simpler hairbands to full on flower crowns, which are particularly effective with vintage-style dresses.

Perhaps your child would like to wear a veil, in which case a statement diamante hair clip can really complete the look.
