Bridal hairstyle ideas for wedding and pre-wedding ceremonies
From ‘do this’ to ‘don’t do this’, you get uncountable ‘gyaans’ from the chachis and masis for your wedding and pre-wedding ceremonies. One target area that receives the maximum ‘gyaan’ is your hair, especially if you have coloured or treated hair. No wonder, your messy bun looks messier a few days before the wedding. But, there’s a hidden beauty behind that messy bun and frizzy hair. The eagerness to dress up for the wedding and pre-wedding ceremonies is surreal.
From traditional hairstyles to chic ones, there is fun in trying different hairstyles for the wedding ceremonies. While the cocktail night calls for soft curls, sangeet ceremony is all about a low bun with petals all around it. To make sure you get the perfect bridal hairstyle for your pre-wedding ceremonies and the wedding night, we have curated a list of hairstyles that will give the look you have dreamt of:
For the Haldi ceremony:
Haldi ceremony is a pre-wedding ritual where the bride along with bridesmaids, friends, parents, and relatives dress up in yellow-coloured attires. From yellow lehenga to yellow saree and dhoti, there are shades of yellow everywhere. Brides, pair up your Haldi costume with loose open curls, a French braid woven into a ponytail, or a chic bridal updo. If you want to have a simple traditional look, try out the side-part low bun hairstyle. This goes best with a yellow saree and a red bindi.
For the sangeet and Mehendi evening
Mehendi and sangeet ceremony is more about flowers and floral decorations. So, your hairstyle for this pre-wedding event is incomplete without floral hair accessories. If you have long hair and want to flaunt it, go for a long fishtail braid or a messy braid. Add mogras or other floral hair accessories to complete the look. Another trendsetter for the ceremony is a bun. It is ideal for both curly and straight hair. Wear a floral tiara to highlight the simple and traditional bun and ace it like a queen.
For the cocktail night
Have long hair? The modern cocktail party hairstyle with open waves or side-swept curls paired with a bright gorgeous outfit will worth a million-dollar look. You can try curling your hair towards the bottom and leave them open without any hair accessories. Have short or middle length hair? Blow drying or making big voluminous curls, depending on the thickness of the hair, will give the perfect cocktail look. With this, leave your fringes to one side and slay it like a princess.
For the morning rituals of the wedding day
A traditional hairstyle never goes out of fashion. A bridal bun studded with real flowers lends a magical charm to your makeup. But if you want to reserve the bun bridal hairstyle for the evening, just add little drama to your normal hair with crimps or soft curls. Want a twisted hairdo for the wedding day morning? Get bridal hairstyles like Bohemian braided bun, classic bun with a braided updo or a half loop braid to look ravishing.
The final evening
The moment of the out-of-the-world look has arrived. All the grace of the world will shower upon you as you wear the gorgeous lehenga or sari and the resplendent jewellery. Choose an Indian bridal hairstyle that is in sync with your makeup and wedding attire. A middle-parted bun decorated with a myriad of flowers is the most classic hairstyle that goes almost with all attires. Want to experiment more with buns? A big braided bun with gajras, a curly bun studded with arched red roses, double-braid crown with a bun or a heavy braided bun with multicolour flowers studded all over are some great bridal hairstyles for the wedding night.
The Reception party
A casual look does the talking at the reception party. Go for a messy bridal updo with flowers studded from below. Want to keep it minimalistic? Try loose curls or long waves with a middle part. Wear a maang tika to finish the look. Add on some baby braids to the curls to enhance the look. Side-swept curls with hair accessories is another fabulous bridal hairstyle for your wedding reception.
Choose your bridal hairstyles according to the wedding and pre-wedding outfits. A perfect wedding hairstyle might look imperfect if it doesn’t match with makeup and outfits. Look for a hairstylist who knows all hairstyles for Indian wedding reception well and can confidently give that dreamy look.
