2. Pinned-up bun:

Pinned-up bun is also a great wedding hairstyle idea for Indian brides. Pinned up bun isn’t actually a bun, rather a small quantity of hair are pinned on top of the head to create an illusion of a bun.

3. Side Bun:

Another variation of the traditional Indian bridal hairstyle comes in the form of ‘Side Bun’. This hairstyle is somewhat similar to the traditional high-bun; the only difference is that rather than placing in the center, the bun is shifted to one side. 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.

4. Updo:

This Sleek and stylish Updo is a classic hairstyle for Indian wedding can also be one of the eye-catching and traditional looking bridal hairstyles for Indian weddings. Think about Bouffant updo, White Ribbon Updo or Sweep Updo.

5. Spanish Updo:

If, however, you don’t want to go the usual run-of-the-mill updo hairstyle, the Spanish updo 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, with elaborate curls, 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.

7. Bohemian Hairstyle:

If you are daring enough to try an entirely different hair look on your nuptials, the bohemian hairstyle is an excellent alternative! It works well for long, flowing hair.

    Thank you for sharing such an interesting writeup. Loved two bridal hairstyles – pinned-up bun and side bun! Very classy and elegant. But I would love to try the last one – bohemian updo – for normal days as well. Wild and free spirited. Will definitely come back. Keep sharing such amazing stuff :)
