The Videowala

Creating easy beautiful hairstyles takes just a little effort, a dash of patience, the right inspiration and the of course practice. Not every girl likes the drama that comes with big hair or has the time and patience, to sit at hair parlours and get elaborate bridal hairstyles. What’s more? Sometimes, it’s the simplest hairstyles that perfectly complement the attire you are wearing, the occasion you are attending or the makeup and jewellery you are accentuating your look with.

The rule of fashion is a balance. Not everything can be opulent at the same time, and at the same time, you can’t underplay all the elements of your look. That’s where easy beautiful hairstyles come in, helping you balance dramatic makeup looks and elaborate bridal attire.

9 Easy, Beautiful Hairstyles

Whether you are a bride-to-be, a bridesmaid, the best friend or just another wedding guest; here are 9 easy beautiful hairstyles that you can do yourself and look fantastic:

1. Twist n’ Turn

Did you see what this to-be-bride did there? The long hair has just been softly twisted right in the middle, turned around and that’s it. Put a pin, at the twist and flatten out the hair around it to add volume and a messy look. This is just perfect and can be easily done in under 10 minutes. Put a little hairspray and you are good to go. The tiny flowers added to the twist, enhance the elegant look of the bride.

2. Straighten and Curl

This is another of the easy beautiful hairstyles, that takes minimal effort and offers maximum style. Just straighten out your hair and curl the ends to create this easy-breezy, but well put together look. Brush back the hair so your face is not covered and finish with a strong hold hairspray so that the hair remains pushed back. You can add a Maang Tikka with a centre parting or a Passa with a side parting.

3. Braided side bun

Start with a side parting. Take the hair from the top part of the hair and braid them down, all the way back. Put all the open hair, along with the end of the braid into a bun on the side of the head. Add flowers or metallic hair accessories to make it look neat and professional. This requires a little practice to get it perfect. Use hair serums to make the hair manageable and hair sprays at the end to keep it all in place.

4. A Tight Bun and Braid

The classic braid is reinvented with a bun to create volume and style. Of all the easy beautiful hairstyles this one is specifically for girls with really long hair. Start with making a flat high bun and then continue braiding the hair tightly. Use flat pins and hair ties to keep the bun in place. You can also add a Gajra to create a neat look.

This is one of my favourite of all easy beautiful hairstyles as it goes great with all kinds of outfits. Just blow dry and curl your hair gently with a round brush. Take the top part of your hair and put them all together at the back of the head, right in the centre. You can use pins or a clutch to do it. Add a hair volume extender at the top of your head to create a dramatic puff. Use a fine-tooth comb to create a neat puff.
