Brides love experimenting with different hair styles for all their wedding functions. With a strong influence coming from Western hairdos and yet the continued liking for our traditional buns, multiple hair styling options are available to Indian brides. Ace Make up artist and Hair Stylist, Priya Kapur tells us more about these trends..
Hairstyles this season revisit the past from chignons to vintage hairstyles all featured in the Bridal 2013 look. Creating timeless and romantic styles, the vintage look influenced by the 20’s,30’s and 40’s is as popular as always in the bridal world.
The modern beehives, sky high big hair enhanced with a thin band, braids –the loose messy side one or the fishtail all here to stay this season.
Buns have always been a huge bridal favorite favoring ethnic and modern sensibilities. The versatility of the bun varies from the simple ballerina bun to more delicate and intricate braided and twisted styles, even messy side buns have been in vogue and will continue to be so in 2013. Side chignons paired with a deep side part is a perfect blend of sleek and messy & works both for a formal or casual look.
Indian brides generally go for voluminous, beautifully shaped buns that are further enhanced with flowers or other hair accessories. The ethnic bun hairstyle for the Indian wedding is one in which the hair is first pulled together and then twisted in the form of a bun. It goes in perfect harmony with the traditional Indian wedding outfits like sarees and lehengas.
Another variation of the traditional Indian bridal hairstyle comes in the form of ‘Side Bun or Chignon’. After a thorough blow-dry, the hair is brushed straight and then pulled into a low puffed-up hair bun, onto a side. This style, however, looks great only if you have well-defined cheeks and prominent eyes.
This sleek and stylish up-do is a classic hairstyle for Indian wedding. It can also be one of the eye-catching looking bridal hairstyles for Indian weddings especially the Reception or Cocktail functions.
If, however, you don’t want to go for the usual run-of-the-mill up-do hairstyle, the voluminous blowout semi pin-up might just impress you provided that your hair is long and thick. Start off by blow-drying the hair to add enough volume and then part horizontally. Grab the upper part of the hair and style it up, and let the other part flowing down at the back. Enhance the do with floral or bejeweled accent pieces or simply with crystal or fancy bows and you’re done.

When it comes to bridal hairstyles for Indian brides, Bun is not the only hairstyle option. You may also go for beautiful braids adorned with flowers at each twist. This can be a traditional, French or a fishtail braid. This style works best for long hair. Hair is parted in the middle and braided with flowers and jewels.
