For all the brides-to-be, it’s time to let your hair down, quite literally! While buns may have been the go-to hairstyle for most Indian brides, more and more brides are choosing to let their tresses flow freely on the day of their wedding now. It’s easy to see why: This contemporary style adds a sense of lightness to the look and exudes ample amounts of charm, confidence and grace. Not only is it in sync with the au naturel look in trend these days, it is also a great way to add a touch of bohemian flair to the wedding day look.
All the recent celebrity brides gave their vote to this hair-do too, ditching the traditional updo in the process. Alia Bhatt with her minimal makeup and understated ensemble, opted for sculpted curls with a sheesh-patti to complete her bridal look. Katrina Kaif went with a straight open hairdo for a pre-wedding look, teaming it with a veiled vintage-inspired sari. Rhea Kapoor also did not shy away from flaunting her long, lustrous locks which were beautiful with a unique pearl veil. So did Shibani Dandekar, with her voluminous, cascading curls under red lace veil.
If you are considering following suit, find a style that works for your hair type and face shape. With a little bit of planning and the right styling, you can create a look that is both stylish and timeless. A half braided open hair style with a flower crown can add an element of fun to your haldi and mehendi outfits, while a middle parted sleek hair do with a headband is perfect for the sangeet or cocktail night. The classic waterfall braid with studded hair accessories can elevate your engagement or reception look, while soft waves styled with a maangtika is an elegant option for the wedding day.
So for those looking to give their bridal repertoire a modern update, just say yes to this new go-to hairdo.
