A long and strong mane of hair is considered a desirable trait for women in India. To achieve great hair, oiling and various herbal treatments have been an intrinsic part of the culture for ages.
A bride with short hair is a rare sight on the Indian wedding scene. To tame the lush tresses, the bride and their female guests need great Indian wedding hairstyles.
Let’s go through some of the best and the worst Indian wedding hairstyles that will act as guides to nail the look at an Indian wedding
Tying hair up in a great hairstyle is a great way to keep the heat away especially during summer weddings. Up-hairdos look very chic for a formal event like wedding. Such Indian wedding hairstyles can be made interesting by using a combination of buns, curls and braids. Adding side flicks in the front gives the tied up hairstyle a stylish look. The pulled up look can be made more interesting and special with the use of hair ornaments and accents.
Leaving the hair loose can also look amazing with an Indian touch of maangtika. You can opt for a free wavy look or even slick straight hair with volume can look mesmerising. Soft waves add the desired volume to loose hair and look very updated. A subtle puff also gives slight dressing up to the let down hair.
Half up and half down Indian wedding hairstyles are a great way to combine the relaxed loose hair and tied up hairdos that mean business. The upper half of the hair can be kept in place with braids or decorative hair clips. A barely visible puff on the crown can help in avoiding the flat look. These hairstyles will look great for semi formal events like Haldi and Mehendi. Here are some amazing half and half hairstyles.
Messy buns and hairdos that creatively display flyaways and do not try to tame the frizz, look chic with a natural touch. It gives a casual attitude to the wedding affair and is great for beach weddings. Below is a messy inspiration for Indian wedding hairstyles.
Braids have been the prevalent choice for Indian wedding hairstyles for centuries, especially in the southern part of India. The braids look stunning with elaborate floral or jewellery decorations and are a perfect match with hand-embroidered kanjeevaram sarees. Nowadays most of the modern girls do not have braid worthy hair length. However creative use of faux hair resolves the issue and helps in creating the braided look.
Most of the brides resort to the traditional approach for their Indian wedding hairstyles and refrain from highly distracting hair colours or unconventional hairdos. Sometimes the hairstyle also becomes inconspicuous because of the head covering dupatta drape. Nevertheless hairstyle plays a great role in achieving a perfect ten look because when the hairstyle is right it will enhance your look. However, when it is not, it will be noticed more (than you wish). Here are some of the worst Indian wedding hairstyles that are better avoided.
The partial beehive decked with a tiara and tight curls flowing down is more worthy of a prom queen look rather than a sophisticated Indian bridal look.
Very high beehives are so 60s and your wedding is not a themed costume party to revive the era. Avoid the Mala Sinha look with your contemporary wedding attire of the latest season.
Just the vision of the hairstyle is enough to initiate a headache. It looks like the flowers got entangled in the messy loops of the hairstyle, which replicates an intricately woven hanging nest.
Unrealistic tight curls or stiffly made hairdos creates a horrible artificial look. Even the most gorgeous outfit cannot distract the guests from the glued look that frames the face. The jewellery looks like the saving grace for the hairdo shown below, but it still cannot totally mask the stuck on hair look beneath.
Indian wedding hairstyles that are simple and chic will always win hearts. You can always jazz up the hairstyles with the choicest collection of Indian jewellery or flowers. Less is more when it comes to high impact looks. Great hair does not need cobweb treatment; instead focus on eating well and sleeping well. Also hire a great hairstylist for the wedding who will take the weight off your head, literally.
