Style 1: The Classic Indian Hairstyle

You can never go wrong with this one. This is one bridal hair style which will never going out of fashion! And it suits everyone!  Grab your hair at the back and put them into a braid or a simple bun hairstyle. Adorn your hair with some fresh mogra flowers (gajra) around the bun and a maang-tikka for jewellery. Whether you want to cover your head with a veil or not will depend on the traditions, but this style will never fail you. I recommend you try this style at least once during the many wedding functions.

Style 2: Jewelled Tiara

Again a very simple, classy and timeless of the Indian women hairstyles. Wear your hair in a puff around the crown to add volume, and create a bun at the back with the remaining hair. Add a stylish tiara around the crown, just before the puff. The style sure turns a lot of heads. It is best worn at engagements and receptions.

Style 3: Neckpiece With a Twist

For ceremonies such as cocktails and sangeet, you can experiment with your looks a lot more than the actual D-day. Try wearing jewellery in a different manner, like wearing a neck-piece with a heavy pendant in place of the maang tikka, in a rather un-conventional way. Keep the rest of the hairstyle very simple, like ironed. So that the focus is on the jewellery!

Style 4: Half-Up-Half-Down Curled Hair

For occasions where you need to keep your hair stylish, yet you don’t want to experiment much, just curl your hair at the back in loose curls, and tie the front-half of the hair in a small voluminous puff. And you’re good to go!

Style 5: For Those With Short Hair

If you have short-cropped hair, and don’t want to use hair extensions or artificial hair, use jewelled accessories to add style to your hair.

Buns are every bride’s favourites when it comes to hair styling for the wedding day. Leaving the front section out, create a puff around the crown. This will not only add some drama to your look, it will also add a few inches to your height. With the rest of the hair, make a simple bun around the nape of the neck. Decorate the hair with simple accessories. The style will keep hair away from your face too, allowing you to enjoy the moments at your wedding without much fuss with the hair.

Style 7: South-Style Braid
