After all, you cannot be having the hair come undone or be smiling through a headache at the reception party!Indian bridal hairstyles 112

Here are a few pointers to keep in mind and give you ideas:

  • After the product abuse that your hair may have been through with the several bridal functions, you may want to enhance your hair with accessories rather than sprays, serum or heat-styling.
  • If you want to relax and let your hair do the same without over-heating or styling your hair, using switches is a great idea. Do make sure not to leave the buying of the switch for the last minute. Take good care to match it with the shade of your hair.
  • Accessories – natural flowers, diamante clips, crystals, hair jewellery and several other adornments can glam up your hair instantly.
  • Since there will be no garment covering the head (mostly) do use a styling spray or serum so there are no flyaway strand and the hair does not look messy.
  • It is also good to ask your bridesmaid like sisters, cousins, sister-in-laws etc to keep some bobby pins or hair spray with them so that if in case the hairstyle start to get loose then it could be tamed then and there. This is very important when the venue is far from home. Safety pins should also be carried if in case some tucking is needed by the bride.
