Best Indian Hairstyles For Girls:

Style 1: Braided back bun:

Take a center part near your forehead and then brush the rest back. Braid your hair and then pull into a bun. Use hair pins to keep the bun in place. To add more glamour to the look, you can use studded hair pins.

Try this look out and accessorize with some Swarovski studded hair pins.

Style 2: The long curls and side bun:

A hot Indian hair style that goes well with a formal or semi-formal occasion, like a party.

This hairstyle needs a bit of patience and styling. Use a curling iron and create some nice lose curls. Brush your hair back and make a loose bun at the side of the back of your head. Make sure that you keep it loose. And leave the lower end of your hair lose so it can flow to one side.

Add some flowers and a mang tikka, it becomes a bridal hairstyle. Leave them out and it is a semi-formal look suitable for a lot of occasions!

Style 3: Low bumped hairstyle look

Sported by Aishwarya for quite a long time, this one can never go out of fashion! Either you bouffant the back hair and secure with pins or secretly secure a small bump it for the bumped up look.

You will need your hair to be at the very least of medium length for this look. The lovely part of this style is its versatility. Keep it straight like Aishwarya and it makes for a lovely formal/ semi-formal look or you can add a dew curls to it at the tips and it will look casual and fun!

Style 4: Retro touch hairstyle

A popular hairstyle that has never gone out of style, it goes well for any kind of party! The retro look has always been an favourite among different age groups. This style needs for you to take a middle part near the forehead and brush the rest back. Add some volume to the hair place on the center of your head. It would look ravishing if you are handy with bump-pits. But if not you can always just tease you hair for more puffed look. Now tie a fairly tight ponytail that isn’t too high. You can now proceed to curling in the tips of your hair.

The mang tikka here makes it very bridal but if you please you can always replace the center part with bangs and you have more contemporary look!

    Nice Articles Zinnia! i am gonna check out all your Articles.. i am not so much into styling.. i am looking out for new hairstyles for my bro’s wedding.. really nice hairstyles.I have wavy hair with short to medium length. have any suggestions?

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/members/zinniamukherjee/ Zinnia

      Yes sure, suggestion is don’t crop your hair any shorter, but get some cute layers as in front bangs, side swept the bangs and give it some loose soft curls.For the remaining hair you can give big loose curls.Won’t suggest you excessive small curls since your hair isn’t long.Use somee hair strong hold spray to keep the curls on till next wash. Have fun at your bro’s wedding. Sry for the late reply though,was stuck up in some work :) thank you for the comment. :)

      If you have extreme fluffy hair, then do try Loreal paris frizz control serum. Just massage before you blow dry. It will transform your dry, rough and frizzy hair into smooth hair. Once your hair is set, you can experiment with lot of hairstyles.
