5 Bollywood-Approved Hairstyles That Work Brilliantly If You Are A Wedding Guestby | November 19, 2019
Your wedding-goer style might be sorted, but it isn't fully complete until you choose an apt hairstyle to go along with your celebratory wardrobe. Fortunately, we have plenty of inspiration when it comes to the subject and lest you forget to notice, it's all Bollywood-approved! Be it a classic, traditional hairstyle or a new-age version, here's all you need to take into account for that big fat Indian wedding you are heading to.
Take a leaf out of Shraddha Kapoor's book because nothing beats the elegant appeal of a gajra—a string of flowers wound around the hair. Go the traditional route with a slick bun featuring a parting in the middle, adding some blooms to your hair for an instant uplift and keeping it to a bare minimum or going all out for maximum impact. Not only does the hairstyle go in sync with a quintessential saree, but it also works wonders for your other ethnic outfits, read lehengas and Anarkalis.
Maangtikas and similar ornaments are a mainstay at Indian weddings, but if you are not a fan of chunky hair accessories, there's always the option of picking something sleeker and smarter. Case in point: Alia Bhatt's semi-precious stone encrusted accessory that does the trick without overpowering her look. Wear it with a messy ponytail or loose waves to your friend's pre-wedding festivities and you will not be disappointed!
Find the idea of a bun to be too conventional? How about doing for a trend-led update like Karisma Kapoor's! Sleek side braids incorporated into an overall braided bun make for a chic hairstyle, one that is equal parts in-vogue and classy. You will find a number of tutorials on Instagram and Youtube at your service to help you out, but ask a friend or pick a hairstylist if the process appears to be too overwhelming. Either way, it's the perfect hairstyle to rock at any wedding or reception you have RSVP'd to this season.
Braids are having a true-blue moment. From messy iterations to versions accessorised with heirloom jewellery, there is nothing one cannot do with a braided mane. But taking the distinctive route, we suggest pairing your saree or lehenga with a fuss-free braid à la Sonam Kapoor. A dream come true for minimalists, the hairstyle guarantees that all attention will stay on your elaborate outfit, while cleverly balancing your look. Opt for it for a Mehendi, Sangeet or a puja ceremony with equal ease.
Bipasha Basu's new-age half-updo makes for great wedding-worthy hair inspiration. Wish to try it out? Segregate few locks of your hair to tie into the bun on the top, adding a bouffant for volume. Securing it with a hair tie and pins, leave the rest of your locks in their natural wavy avatar. An ideal accompaniment for both traditional and contemporary ensembles, this is a just what you need to dress up to the nines this wedding season.
