We work with the whole wedding party, including the flower girls, and I always think the flower girls should be soft and cute. Oftentimes, you see flower girls that's hair is pulled way too tight and it kind of gives them a more grownup feeling, where flower girls should be exactly that, they should be girls. So to keep their hair soft you want to use larger curls in the hair, maybe not pull it so tight. Keep their hair in a soft barette or a soft ponytail, even an updo is fine, but you want to keep the product that you use, the hairspray that you use, to a minimum. Sometimes we get junior bridesmaids, and they like to feel a part of the bridesmaids, so we will tend to give them a style that's still young and youthful to their age, yet still remain in the group with the big girls.
