Your family wants an elaborate bun decorated with small flowers and rhinestones. Your friends tell you to let your hair down in soft curls. Your mother wants mellow makeup. Your bridesmaids tell you to get spunky. Is it any wonder, then, that you’re slowly turning into a bridezilla that’s unable to pick a hairstyle and a makeup arrangement to go with it? We get it – it’s hard to zero in on a particular hairstyle that’s in keeping with the times and make sure everyone around you is happy. So, here’s the lowdown on staying a bride, and straying away from bridezilla.
Have some fun with the bun
We’ve all seen the simple, traditional bun. While it looks neat and tidy, a bride needs a bit more. So give the side-parted ringlet bun a chance. It looks sophisticated and also gives you a chance to flaunt some stunning motifs. It’s quite easy to do it yourself, too, which will be of great help, especially if your wedding is a budget wedding. Here is a simple tutorial to help you out!
Bring out your Braidzilla
A throwback to the classic. A touch of the contemporary. Who says only Disney princesses could flaunt thick braids that are as flawless as they are beautiful? With some imagination (and a helpful Taarini tip), you could look every bit as pretty as Elsa or Jasmine! A soft, loose romantic braid hairstyle is just the ticket to enhance your beauty. What’s more, tis hairstyle perfectly supports the maang tikka, so that’s an added bonus. If you’re doing it yourself, you might want to check this out.
Another braid that’s growing in popularity among brides is the Mermaid Braid. It goes great with a simple lehenga and blouse, something pastel and matte. Now, it’s a little tricky to get it right the first time, so you may want to get someone’s help doing it. Better yet, get a friend to do it for you! It’s simple once you get the hang of it. Don’t take our word for it, though – see for yourself!
Curls and twirls
Given that a bridal outfits are bedecked and possibly heavier than yourself, how about taking the “less is more” philosophy route when it comes to your hairstyle? Opt for relaxed curls and pin them for a casual yet elegant vibe. All you need is a curling iron, some bobby pins and a few minutes of your precious time. Pro tip: go in for a Jhumar when your curls are set. You won’t regret it.
These hairstyles work great for budget weddings, because they’re all DIY. They’ll come in handy for other occasions too – a sangeet, a mehendi ceremony or even a roaring bachelorette party.
