Every woman has a mental image of what she wants to look like on her wedding day. It’s the day everything needs to be perfect – from the makeup, and the attire, to the accessories. However, what really brings the entire bridal look together is the bridal hairstyle you choose.

Your bridal hairstyle should bring out the best in you by highlighting your face shape and features. Hence, we have compiled a list of graceful yet chic bridal hairstyles that will leave everyone mesmerized on your wedding day, not just the groom!

How to choose an Indian bride hairstyle?

If you are wondering which Indian bride hairstyle would suit you, start off by finding out your face shape. There are generally five face shapes, namely round, oval, heart, square, and diamond. Simply pull your hair back in a ponytail and draw an outline of your face in the mirror using an eye pencil. This will give you a rough idea of which category your face falls into. Then you can decide among the different Indian wedding hairstyles that suit your face shape. Read more to understand face shapes.

You can also choose a bridal hairstyle based on the length of your hair. Even though you must have imagined the ideal bridal hair to be long, luscious tresses, short hair is so chic and in vogue that there are numerous hairstyles and ways to experiment with it. Check out this blog to understand which type of hairstyle compliments your face cut.

The Senorita Bun

Senorita Bun Bridal Hairstyle | Bodycraft

If you want to jazz up the classic bridal bun which is ideal for Indian wedding hairstyles, try out the Senorita bun. It is the perfect fusion between an Indian and a French bun. With a centre parting and a tightly braided bun at the back, this bun can be accessorised with roses to make you look like a French Senorita. This contemporary hairstyle suits heart-shaped faces the best.

Braided Hair with Loose Curls

If you are not inclined towards getting a bun for your wedding day, try semi-braided and loose curls for a simple yet elegant look. Braid the front part of your hair and take it to the back and pin it up. The other half of your hair can be left loose and set with soft curls. Accessorize with some pretty pins or flowers to complete the look. This hairstyle works wonders on those with thick long tresses. This volumizing Indian bridal hairstyle works best in softening the sharp, chiseled features of diamond-shaped faces.

One-Sided Twists with Open Hair

If you want to ditch the bun and braid, opt for twisties instead. The high-fashion but low-maintenance hairstyle is perfect for the carefree and new-age bride. You can either side part or middle part your hair for this one, and make four twisties on either side of your hair and pin them together at the back. The rest of your hair can either be curled or straightened as per your desire.

1. How to maintain a bridal hairstyle?

Make sure that you have used the right type and amount of hair styling product so that your hairstyle does not fall out of place. Setting your hair with good quality hair spray is a must so that the style can go on for the entire duration of your wedding ceremony and after. Use heat protection to protect your hair from damage caused by heating products.

Use a good amount of hair clips, bobby pins, and hair ties as per the requirement of your hairstyle, to keep it in shape and looking fresh. Remember to touch your hair as less as possible once the desired hairstyle is achieved as it will definitely weigh down on the volume and make the hair greasier.
