There’s no denying the importance of choosing the right makeup for your wedding. Amidst the sea of dupattas and heavy jewellery, it pays to look for a hairstyle that helps you balance both the practical and aesthetic aspects. From hair with floral details to simple, minimalist curls, bridal hairstyles have come a long way. Hairstylists are now infusing a breath of fresh air by adding newer ideas and more unique features to styling. Hair is no longer hidden behind a veil, but flaunted.

Here’s a look at the top 10 bridal hairstyles to try –

This hairstyle scores because of the use of exotic flowers that add colour to the look. Perfect for a Mehendi because of its playfulness.

No one knows how to use mogra as beautifully in a braid as celebrity makeup artist Namrata Soni. She created the criss-cross mogra hair for Sonam’s wedding, a look now emulated by brides all over the country.

This is a glamorous evening look, ideal for a Sangeet. Red roses are a classic, and the side sweep creates an old-world charm.

This is a fuss-free hairstyle that works with lehengas because one ends up carrying heavier dupattas with it. The roses in pink, white, and yellow, give it a vintage feel and the look is delicate and feminine.

Dry blooms with wavy hair

The slightly wind-swept wavy look with purple flowers is great for the Mehendi or wedding, but let it shine through the dupatta.

Big braids are a classic but if you accentuate them with local flowers and an array of wild greens, it is a charmer.

Minimalism is big this year and that means hair gets slicker and flowers get smaller. This look in the latest Anita Dongre campaign is modern and simple.

This look has started getting popular on Instagram, with many brides opting for flowers that are tiny and easy to wear. Baby’s breath are an interesting option to use for this look.

Just like Jasmine, this hairstyle has gumption too. The rose buds are spectacular and the spaced out ponytail is glamorous. We are loving the delicate, pastel rose shades.

Baby’s breath are such a beautiful flower to play around with. This simple bun uses their charm to create a more quirky and whimsical vibe.

Anita Dongre’s campaign had great hair inspiration for brides and instead of flowers or pearls, the designer used customised hair jewellery to create a beautiful look.
