Wedding season is right around the corner and I firmly believe that when it comes to matrimonial functions, you should leave no stone unturned. I love to experiment with and learn new hairstyles in the run up to weddings, so that every element of my look is unique. This season, a couple of my friends and cousins are getting married, so I have been on the hunt for some cute hairstyles that will set me apart from the rest of the attendees. Ladies, I present to you: three cute hairstyles to sport this wedding season…or for any major event, really.
When I saw this sexy hairstyle on Khloe Kardashian earlier this year, I was simply blown away and knew that I had to try it. It screams “power woman” and would look absolutely amazing with a gorgeous gown for a night-time cocktail affair. Start by using a texturizing spray in your mane. Next, use a boar bristle brush to blow dry your hair upward from the roots at the crown. This will create the volume that is so important for this style. After this, blow dry the sides backward and pin them back, whilst keeping the volume at the top. At this stage, it is a good idea to straighten the rest of your hair (with the pins in place) to achieve the perfect sleek finish. Now, gently smooth the top back with a fine-tooth comb, shaping your hair until you have the amount of height you want. Finish off your look with a texture paste to shape the look and a final spritz of strong-hold spray.
I have been lusting over this flirty hairstyle for a while now, but it is only recently that I learned how to do it. I can totally imagine sporting this for a daytime mehendi function with glamorous jhumka earrings to finish the look. You should start this hairdo by brushing your hair to remove any tangles, because they might mess up your braids. Part your hair evenly in the middle and then plait each side in the Dutch braid style, securing it at the end with a thin hair elastic. Spritz both braids with hairspray to tuck in any loose hairs. Now, place one braid across your head (like you would wear a headband) and pin it in place. Do the same with the second one and secure the end under the first braid. Use hairspray to tidy up the look and voila!
This bun is a classic one that will never go out of style. You can sport this for both Indian and Western weddings as it exudes an easy sophistication. Start with brushing out your hair to remove any tangles and then pull your hair back into a ponytail, using a comb to remove any bumps. Secure this with a thin hair elastic. Now, separate your ponytail into two even sections. Take the first and twist the section tightly. After this, wrap the twist around the base of your ponytail (not over it) as many times as possible and then secure the end with pins. Repeat with the second section, and finish off the look with a strong-hold hairspray. If you are going for a desi wedding, you could even add an embellished hair stick to the bun for some fun!
