Bridal Beehive Chignon
Buns or knotted hairstyles are called Chignons. A beehive is like a high puff usually created by women on the crown of their heads.
- For this style first and foremost you need to create a high puff on the crown of the head with some artificial hair or a sponge inserted underneath it.
- After which tie up the hair in a ponytail and insert a bun roll over it to roll the hair over the band. This would add a lot of volume to the bun and make it look bigger.
- You can insert a few hair accessories or a huge rose in a shade of your choice to give the chignon a better look. Don’t forget to get this made properly with a lot of bobby pins pinned up to hold it in place.
Bridal Floral Braids
In some parts of Southern India braided styles are usually preferred for the bride. This is a style which can be done with hair of any length short, medium or long.
- Firstly a puff has to be made a little behind the crown, after which a bun is made with the help of a bun roll. This bun has to look like a coiled up bouffant bun with a lot of volume. Fix it up properly with pins.
- Next attach an artificial bejewelled braid inserted with some embellishments or little jewellery pieces called jadai alangaram to add a touch of glamour to it and make it look prettier.
- This braid is usually swirled up with a chain of little Jasmine or Mogra flowers. Plenty of bobby pins and decorative pins are used to tuck up and set the flowers, braid, decorations etc.
A Wavy Downdo Style
This is quite a prevalent and hugely loved hairstyle especially for the reception, sangeet and mehandi purposes.
- This downdo is one of the simplest styles and can be made on any length of hair. Primarily the hair has to be either sprinkled with pomade, a scented oil like ointment used for dressing the hair or dampened with some water.
- After dampening the hair for making it easy to handle take some of the hair from the top or crown of the head and create a bouffant style, something like a puff fixing it properly with decorative bobby pins.
- Let the rest of the hair hang loose. Use a hair curler to curl the front bangs first. The front curls need to be loosely spaced with large gaps in between each other whereas the rest of the hair has to be curled in a closely knit manner.
You can get a mangtika inserted through the extreme front portion to get this bridal look completed.
A Curled Side Downdo
This is a great hairdo which looks absolutely brilliant with any kind of bridal outfit and will suit brides coming from a wide assortment of backgrounds and regions.
This style won’t go well with short hair as we have a lot of twists, turns, curves and curls to be made.
- Back brush the hair and tease it a little to give it a fluffed up look. Take three thin strands of hair, twist them and coil them up then secure these with U-shaped bun pins.
- Take four to five fine strands of hair separately and roll these up from inside the rest of the hair, slowly the entire hair will get wrapped up with the strands.
- The rest of the hair which is left hanging can be tied like a side pony and curled up. These delicate lacy designs are to be held tight with the u-shaped bun pins available in the market.
- Use water spray to keep the strands manageable and easy to handle.
A Bridal Hairstyle for Short Hair
For all the women out there with shoulder length or bobbed up hair, who are worried or tensed about what hairstyle to go with without having to use any artificial hair.
Here we have a very creative hairstyle for you all.
- Take out two strands of medium proportions from the extreme front portion of the head and keep these out separately.
- Create a puff on the crown leaving the front portions hanging out. Later take both the front portions and create little twisted braids out of these attaching the twists or braids with a bobby pin and place a huge rose in the center which should preferably match the colour of your wedding outfit.
- Curl the rest of the hair which keeps hanging out with a hair curler so that the entire hair looks intricately curly and rolled up in a beautiful pattern.
