Most brides prefer to hire a professional makeup and hair artist to doll them up on their wedding. But, along with hiring an artist, every bride should have a clear idea regarding the makeup look or hairstyle she's aiming for. If your wedding is near and you do not want to depend entirely on your hairstylist, here are hairstyles you must checkout.

These casual hairstyles are apt for brides who are not a fan of sleek French bun, polished hair bun, retro curls and other goody-goody hairdos. In essence, these casual hairstyles are perfect for brides who like a little bit of mess, a lot of texture and an overdose of drama.

Side-swept Loose Curls

This fun hairstyle has braids on the crown that create a half-up look. Whereas the voluminous spiral curls enhance the hair colour, giving it more definition. The crowning glory here is the touch of flowers.

Add some volume, mess and texture to a ponytail and it becomes one of the most sought-after casual hairstyles. For brides who would rather have their hair up, this is an amazing option. We notice a whole lot of texture going on in the crown area, bounce on the length of the hair and then loose curls towards the end.

Braided Crown

Who does not like pretty hairstyles that work for all hair types and lengths. This hairstyle features a braided crown that’s very feminine and cute. Just a hint of volume on the crown area and causal curls on the ends give it an elegant touch. Wear a Maang Tikka or a Passa if you’re planning to pair this hairstyle with Indian ethnic wear; avoid accessories with western dresses.

This fusion fishtail cum bubble braid looks so trendy without being high-maintenance and it goes well with pretty much any casual outfit.

Tousled, textured and perfectly imperfect messy hair is the exceptional way to showcase balayage and ombre colouring techniques.

Live your fairytale life by adding a bow to your hair. This half-up, half-down hairstyle is one of the classic casual hairstyles that do not look unapt on weddings. To create this hairstyle, smoothen and curl your hair as usual and then create a bow with your own hair. This hairstyle is all you need to pair with your contemporary lehenga and other Indo-western outfits.

Textured Rose Bun

Brides who do not like to add real flowers to their hair or just could not arrange them can go for one of the flower-inspired casual hairstyles. Created with the help of backcombing, texturising sprays and braiding, this hairstyle is cool but classy. Wear it with ultra-modern off-the-shoulder and sleeveless outfits to draw attention towards your face.

Open Hair With Bright Accessories

Girls who like to maintain the natural dark colour of their hair must add a whimsical element to their hair. This bride chose to add a neon butterfly accessory, which is complementing her black hair so beautifully. To further accentuate the look, the stylist has kept her hair open but textured. Crimping, texturising sprays, layers and uneven curls are the quickest ways to add more texture.

To create and sport the perfect casual hairstyles all through your wedding functions, insist on having texture, bounce and volume in your hair. Other than that, girly accessories - like flowers and tiaras - can do the trick effortlessly. Not just your wedding day, all the other days leading to it and the rest of wedding functions also require you to look well-groomed but not formal. If you are aiming for boho, relaxed, cool or casual bridal looks, discuss these hairstyles with your stylist or take a trial if possible. Good luck!
