One of the most important days in a woman’s life is her wedding day. It is imperative for this day to go smoothly and for her to look her best. And to that end she spends loads of money and time on her dress, makeup and hair! Now her hair forms an important part of her appearance. Many brides choose to add fake ponytails to increase the length of their hair. Many undergo hair treatments to make it seem thick and lush. But all this effort is wasted if a bride chooses the wrong hairstyle! To help you avoid this, here are the list of the top 9 hairstyles for Hindu brides.

1. The Ornamented Plait:

Ornamented Plait

This is the most common hairstyle in South India. brides are known to plait their long, black, luscious hair in a tight plait and then add jewellery and flowers to give it a festive look. This hairstyle is meretricious and makes the bride look grand. But it sports a lot of ornaments and shows very little of the bride’s hair.

2. Many Band Pony Tail:

A substitute for plait in case of long hair is a ponytail. Now a simple ponytail will seem too informal and will make you look underdressed on your wedding. So you use elastic ties decorated with rhinestones. Tie several of these on your ponytail at regular intervals, to make it look more decorative and shiny.

3. Jasmines:

5. Bow Bun:

A tight simple bun with a bow on top and a brooch adorning it looks regal and elegant. Though a very simple hairstyle it has a certain charm about it that recommends it to several brides. It gives you a decorated look without appearing overdone or gauche.

6. A Cross-Tied Bun:

This bun is more intricate than the previous two. It takes more time to do and looks more sophisticated, owing to the complications involved in its crisscrossing bands of hair. The hairdresser has to first shampoo, blow-dry and comb your hair till its silky and smooth. Then he/she divides it in several halves and ties them in a criss-crossing pattern.
