21 Gorgeous Indian bridal hairstyles

Helping brides narrow down their selection from these 21 absolutely gorgeous Indian bridal hairstyles

Weddings are so much fun to attend! But in all of this, I feel, the bride has the most amount of fun as she is given all the freedom to choose and buy whatever she puts her finger on 😀 In the previous post – 15 Indian Bridal hairstyles – the idea was to give the bride some inspiration regarding the bridal hairstyles that she can choose from. This post will help brides further narrow down their FINAL bridal hairstyles! As a bridal makeup artist, I have strong views about which hairstyles work and which don’t – so these views are based on my experience in working with some beautiful brides 🙂

The Classic Bun

The bridal bun is one of those hairstyles that is fairly common, and can be considered a ‘classic’ for any wedding! Indian brides ideally need to cover their head with a dupatta, which off late, is made from a netted fabric. So the bun needs to be pulled together tight and made very neat as it’s going to be visible through the dupatta. One can give a middle parting to the front hair or back comb it to get a fluffy hairdo. This is also one of those hairstyles where a bride can easily place the maang tikka in the center. Accessorizing around the bun with gorgeous hair accessories or fresh flowers looks very rich and can elevate it to one of the best Indian hairstyles.

Braids

Braids have been the traditional Indian bridal hairstyles since years and still looks lovely on any bride. Over the years there have been modifications to the simple braid, for the better! Fishtail braids and waterfall braid are very popular now and look very elegant on Indian bridal outfits. Braids look great on brides with medium to long length hair, but others can very easily add some hair extensions to achieve the same hairstyle.

Messy buns

This is a one of those spicy hairstyles that I would myself love to try! A twist to the normal buns are the messy, not-so-perfect buns which look stunning for a sangeet ceremony. Brides who do not have to cover their heads on their wedding can opt for these options too. They are different, elegant and add some softness to the face with some curls and strands left on either side of the face. Adding some real flowers on one side of the hair will make this one of those hairstyles that really stands out!

Open Curls and waves

Open hairstyles will always be in trend for an Indian bride. These days there are tons of ways in which you can wear an open style – in curls, straight, waves or simple rollers. Pinning it in the center or taking all to one side are some good options to choose from. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different bridal hairstyles before the wedding! You’d never know what suits you until you don’t try something new 🙂

    • You haven’t mentioned the length and texture of your hair (straight, wavy or curly), so I am suggesting things in general. If you have straight hair, make a side parting and add a fancy pin to hold the hair to one side. It’s super simple and easy. If you could get your hair randomly curled yourself or at the salon and just before you go to the party, run your fingers through the hair and open out the curls a little bit, your hair would look fuller with some waves. In case if you’d like to tie up your hair, make a messy bun with a few strands of hair falling over your face. Finish off with a hair accessory over the bun or on the side. Hope this helps.
