Wedding bells bring out the diva in all of us. We want to look our best on that special day and go to great lengths to find the perfect outfit, the perfect jewellery, the perfect everything – right down to the shade of lipstick. But what often gets ignored in the exhaustive rush of planning your bridal look is the all-important hairdo! The way you fashion your hair can make a huge difference to your overall appearance. A last minute “do your best” directive to the salon hair-stylist can go very wrong. In order to avoid any such issues on D-day, it’s best to plan your wedding hairdo in advance, just as you plan your outfit, footwear, and makeup.
If you are looking for some wedding hair styling ideas, the recent trends in the bridal couture industry could be your inspiration. We have picked up two of the popular hair trends from this season that have universal appeal and suitability. Regardless of your height, face-cut, and wedding dress style, these hairdos will complement your bridal look. So read on for our top picks for bridal hairdos this season!
Traditional Indian brides typically wear their hair in a bun since they need an up-do which their heavy dupatta or palu can be attached to. But modern brides have begun experimenting with the classic bun and also the way they drape their dupatta. We say, why not do the traditional up-do with modern stylistics? Perfect balance, isn’t it?
This season, bejewelled hair accessories are all the rage. Go in for a soft bun and highlight it with hair accessories that match your jewellery. From the front, keep the look relaxed, with tendrils and wisps in a careful disarray. This will give you a soft, delicate appearance and also prevent the discomforts of tightly styled hair.
Brides in the western world wear their hair in many different ways. Some leave them open with a little bit of styling while others go in for complex buns, braids, or even ponytails. Our favourite this season in the waterfall braid which can be as simple or fancy as you please. Just make sure to discuss it with your hairstylist before because they can take a while to get right.
Waterfall braids can be further enhanced with hair accessories or even flowers. We suggest using pearl accessories and/or white flowers since these add much elegance to the final bridal look. And the best part is, you do not have to worry about too many pins or clips in your hair since as far as keeping the hair in place goes, waterfall braids are rather low maintenance. Sounds great, right?
While these are our top picks, you can customize these further to better suit your sensibilities or even go in for something else. But keep two things in mind when selecting your wedding hairdo; one, it should be as comfortable and fuss-free as possible, and two, it should be distinctive enough to add more glam to your bridal turnout. You’ll not go wrong if you follow these rules!
