Bridal hairstyles have come a long way over the years and there are just so many options now that it can often get confusing which one to go for. I decided to make life easier for my dear readers by showing some of the best options out there that are absolutely fab and totally insta worthy!
I have noticed that Indian make up artists tend to go slightly heavy on the hairspray and the styling, so if you’re one for the simpler looks then you might need to set expectations straight right from the start.
It is important to select a hairstyle that you are comfortable – this is the starting point. No matter how good a style looks, if you’re not comfortable and feeling good wearing it, then don’t do it. It’ll be on your mind through the day and won’t let you enjoy your big day as much as you should. A balance between what looks nice and what is most comfortable for you is the best tip i would give – a tough rope to walk, but give it some thought and it’ll be totally worth the time.
Another tip is to try to get the hair done up in the same style that you select for the big day in advance, so you can get a feel for how it would suit your face. This should be done well in advance so that you have enough time to change the style as required and discuss it with your stylist. Not important to have the same stylist as your wedding day, and even someone else who can merely create that look for you should be sufficient.
