Bridal hairstyles change with the trends in fashion. Just like you have trends for bridal wear, you also have a set of hairstyle trends for the Indian wedding season. Women of this generation are bored with the same old Indian hairstyles that have been there for ages. But when you are dressed head to toe in traditional clothes, then your bridal hairstyle cannot really be inspired by punk fashion.
So you need an Indian hairstyle for your wedding day, may be an improvised one but Indian nonetheless. The problem with choosing a bridal hairstyle is that your head will be covered during the wedding. Thus, you need to choose a bridal hairstyle that can be visible through all your finery.
The most popular hairdo for the Indian wedding is the traditional bun. There are several types of buns you can try with your bridal wear. Braid hairstyles are also becoming popular these days. Braids keep your hair fixed in one place and there are lesser chances of your hair becoming loose.
Bridal hairstyles are often flaunted by using jewellery. There are certain traditional pieces of jewellery like mang tikka, tiara, gota and other head gear that the Indian bride is supposed to wear. Without these, your 'solah-shringar' remains incomplete. So the hair jewellery you wear is just as important as your hairstyle.
Here are some of the bridal hairstyles that are in trend this winter.
