#POPxoBrides style is our favourite source of inspiration. Girls like you and me are pretty awesome when it comes to fashion, you know! So when a reader asked us for mehendi hairdo ideas, we knew we had to turn to girls all over Instagram who nailed their mehendi day looks!
Check out these gorgeous mehendi hairstyles that are super easy to do it yourself too!
1. The messy braid
Gone are the days of tightly combed and perfectly pinned up hair. Messy hair is all you need to get your swag on! A pretty maangtikka completes the laid back look for an afternoon mehendi function.
2. Half up-half down
Mehendi is all about keeping it light and fun. And this bride is totally nailing it! The locks are casually pinned up in front and loose curls drape her neck and shoulders, giving her face a delicacy. We love the colourful passa that’s adds just the right bridal feel.
3. A messy bun
Want to keep hair out of your face while you get your mehendi done? Go for the messy bun! It’s super easy to achieve and looks fab on just about everyone. Your gorgeous earrings will be in focus in every picture!
4. The side pony
When my makeup artist didn’t turn up on time, I gathered my hair in a side ponytail and totally loved the resulting look. The large, quirky maathapatti looked great and I could dance away the afternoon without worrying about random flyaways!
5. Princess braids
We love how squash player Dipika Pallikal has those two princess braids pinned up at the crown while the rest of her hair is left loose. Looks absolutely pretty, we say!
6. Up high!
A no-fuss look for the girl who wants to keep it chic and modern. Perfectly complimenting her Indo-western outfit is the high pony that’s a refreshing change from the usual wedding hairstyles.
7. Flower power
A simple braid prettied up with a string of flowers. How very gorgeous is that! She’s gone sans hair jewellery and opted for fresh flowers that we just can’t stop staring at!
