4. Short hair:

Neeti Mohan has clearly set the trend for the brides with short tresses like in a bob cut or a maybe a layered blunt, and her curls make her look adorable in her lehenga and her comfortable Nike Cortez kicks.

It is always a good idea to let the short hair lose after straightening or curling it. You can make small puff to accentuate the hairstyle or just simply make a centre partition. All you need is a hair straightener, comb, bobby pins, hairspray and a few accessories. The strands of hair that are curled outwards from the face, help you frame the face and keep the elegant yet cute quotient intact and the heads are sure to turn.

How to Style:

  • Comb your hair well and straighten or curl them to get a neat and Indian hairstyle.
  • Part your hair and start twisting your hair from one side, secure it with a bobby pin on one side. Repeat on the other side as well.
  • If you have bangs and can't twist your hair, then give it a wavy tinge with a hair curler.
  • After you're done, apply a hairspray, so that your hairstyle stays fresh and in its place for a long time.
  • Add colour highlights, bridal jewellery or use small, floral accents on the twisted hair.
  • This is a simple yet attractive hairstyle that can add magic to your look.

5. Medium hair:


Buns with half-tied hairstyles look great on medium-length hair. All you need is a comb, some U pins, bobby pins, hair curler, few accessories for hair and hairspray. The half-up-half-down hairstyle increases the layers in your mane, and your tresses look more voluminous and in sync with the grandeur of the occasion.

How to Style:

  • You can take half section of hair, comb it and make a high bun; if your hair is thin, then use a small doughnut bun and wrap your hair (tied in a ponytail) around it.
  • Now, you can make waves of the remaining hair with curling irons.
  • Let the wavy hair lose and accentuate the style with floral jewellery.
  • You can also use flowers secured with bobby pins. It looks dramatic and very pretty.

6. Long Hair:

If you have long hair, you can make a puff in the crown area of the head and tie up the rest of the hair in a neat braid. For that, you will need a hair straightener, comb, elastic band for hair, some hair floral jewellery and you are good to go. The use of floral chains of jasmine or other flowers around the braided hair will be an amazing touch to the easy hairstyles to do yourself for a wedding and it gives the impression of a thick mane which is never a bad choice.

How to Style:

  • If your hair is not straight, then begin by straightening your tresses.
  • Such smooth long hair will help you with sleek and elegant braids.
  • You can make a centre or side partition and make a long braid, which is very simple.
  • After you are done with the neat and smooth braid, you can use hair accessories to add the gorgeousness or spirally cover the braid with flowers.
  • It is a very simple yet attractive hairstyle that takes very less time and it looks very pretty.

Your wedding hairstyle should be comfortable and elegant because you will be covering your head with a dupatta. For curly hair, buns are best because they keep the hair neat, straight, silky and smooth. Similarly, wavy hair can also be converted into gorgeous styles.

For long hair, braids look great and women with medium length hair have the option of braids and buns. With short length hair, letting them loose is the best option.
