It is yet that time of the year again, when celebrations are the fashion of the hour. Yes, the wedding season is round the corner,  so brides are all geared up to look out-of-the-world on their D-day. I bring forth bridal hairdos that’s trending this season.

Brides have become way more experimental with their looks so now they don’t just opt for the regular traditional up dos anymore but there is so much more to it;  today, messy chignons, braids and curled styles make for a lovely hairdo for the modern Indian bride. The latest bridal hairdo trends are braids, buns, braids with accessories or orchids and open hair. It depends on the preference of the bride of course.

In terms of hair accessories natural flowers, stylish veils and crystals look lovely too, depending  on the outfit. Also hair accessories like fresh flowers, golden and silver artificial flowers; tiaras, etc. are in vogue too. To look apt for the occasion one should make a bun and attach fresh flowers to it. Or one can probably opt for a side bun and attach tiaras to it for a unique look. If someone has short hair, they can add hair extensions and wear appropriate accessory of their choice. According to the length of the hair, brides have a plethora of options to deck their hair up for the big day. You can choose to be traditional yet chic or perhaps add up a little quirk to the usual to look edgy.

Hairdos for a white wedding:

Whenever we think of a Christian bride the look that comes in front of our eyes is very soft, pastel, white, flowy and natural. So the first look that I recommend is soft curls in the hair, loosely tied up and accessorised with small Swarovski crystals. The idea is for the hair to look very natural, wavy and girly. To achieve this look you have to start by first applying hair mousse in the hair and then adding hot rollers to achieve the soft curls. Once the rollers are removed from the hair, you have to start by pinning up the hair naturally from the front and then loosely making soft vintage-kind rolls on the head and letting some of the soft curls flow down naturally too.

Chignon

The second look that I recommend, which again goes beautifully for a Christian bride is a loosely done up chignon. To achieve this look you have to start by applying some hair mousse in the hair and then using a hair tong start curling up the hair, section by section. Once the hair is curled up you need to first style the hair from front depending on the face cut and what suits the bride and then tie the rest of the hair in a ponytail and make a loose chignon on whichever side you think suits the bride the best. This look can be accessorised by using flowers like white rose or lily, which will enhance the look and make it look very chic.

The third look  is a loosely done up fish tail braid, placed on one side. This look again is very different and can be easily achieved. After styling the hair from the front, start making a loose fish tail braid but make sure to pull out a few strands of hair while making the braid and then by using a hair tong curl up the strands. This will make the braid look very natural and flowy instead of a neatly done up one and this look can be accessorised by using small crystals in the braid.

Some trending hairstyles: 

Curly Magic Look:  Simply blow dry and  part your hair by tracing the crown of your head. Within that part split hair into two sections with back section containing one-third of the hair. Back comb the one-third section and add stuffing to it for a perfect poof. Then curl rest of your hair with the help of a tong. It will create a perfect magic for you. Accessories like veil and tiaras would look best with curls. Also, such hairdos look best when worn on A-line gowns with strapless necklines.

Buns:  It can be low, high or side buns. It is perfect for creating a sophisticated and stylish look for the bride. For a low bun, make a low ponytail and back comb the hair to give volume to it. Add stuffing around the ponytail and wrap the ponytail with your hand to create a twisted effect. Fix your hair with pins properly so that it doesn’t loosen up. Head gears and white roses can accentuate low buns. This hairdo will look stunning on a dropped-waist style gown. Whereas, for high buns, create a poof by parting the front section of your hair and then back comb it. Tie a high ponytail with the rest of the hair in centre; wrap the ponytail in your hand to create a twisted effect. Keeping your hair twisted, wrap it around a hair band then fix it properly with hair pins. Once again, deck this look up with tiaras and veils. This hair style will look apt on a gown with long sleeves, worn off the shoulder. For side messy buns, take a small section of your hair and back comb it to create volume. Gather them all and make a side ponytail and tie it with a rubber band. Take strands from ponytail and bunch them up with pins to create a bun. Don’t tuck the loose ends of the bun. This look can me ornamented with tiaras, headgears or perhaps a chic hat. Wear a mermaid gown with this hairdo to leave everyone spellbound!

Braid:  Divide your hair into two large sections from middle. Take a thin strand from outside of the left section. Similarly repeat the process on the right side as well. Keep taking alternating sides, weaving over and under, until you reach the bottom. Tie it with a band. Adorn this look with fresh flowers or a veil. An empire gown will go beautifully with this hairstyle.
