A best friend’s wedding is a *much* awaited event in a girl’s life! Apart from taking care of all of your bestie’s needs, you also want to make sure you look just perfect - after all, it’s your best friend's big day! One thing that can make or break your look is your hair. To make sure you turn heads with flawless hair on your bestie's big day, here are 10 tips you must follow!
1. Get a trim
Ladies, this is not really the time to go for a drastic new haircut - you don’t want to end up with a look you dislike. Opt for a simple trim to get rid of split-ends, neaten up your look and give your hair a healthy bounce!
2. Homemade hair masks are the way to go!
Wedding season means back-to-back functions - which means a lot of hairstyling. This, in turn, can cause damage to your locks by drying them out. Deep condition your hair to keep the moisture locked in your tresses. Use a homemade mask which needs zero effort. Mix 2 tablespoons of coconut oil with one tablespoon of lemon juice and leave it on overnight. Shampoo your hair the next morning, and you’ll have hair that shines as bright as you.
3. Create a schedule...for your hairstyles!
You should talk to your friends in advance and discuss your hairstyles - just as you discuss your outfits. If you plan to do your hair by yourself, then have another friend by your side to help you with it. It’s important to have someone around for the right perspective and solutions in case anything goes wrong! After all, you want to stand out at your best friend’s wedding, right?
4. Experiment with hair colours, right at home
Eyeing Deepika’s look in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani? We all know her hair colour was to die for. We understand you’re busy, so opt for a quick fix. Colour your hair with Godrej Expert Rich Crème, which takes only 30 minutes without any mess. Fretting over the damage hair colours cause? We feel you. This hair colour has no ammonia and thus causes no damage. Here’s an idea - colour your hair according to your hairstyle. Streaks can do wonders for your tresses when you’re going for beachy waves or an open-hair style.
5. Avoid a panic attack - get a blow-dry the day before!
Since it’s your best friend who is getting hitched, there are probably a million things that you’ll have to do. So, in the event of not being able to go to the parlour on the wedding day, visit the parlour a day before. This will save you the time the next day. Get a no-styling-cream blow-dry to get rid of tangles leaving your hair soft and glossy. Avoid styling products, though, since you don’t want your hair to be too stiff to manage the next day.
6. Make sure your hairstyle stays in place
Whether you’re going au naturel or have a heavily styled do, the one thing you want is for your hairstyle to stay intact throughout, come rain, storm or crazy dancing! Which is why spritzing on a long-lasting hair spray is essential. After all, you don’t want to start the night looking glam and end it looking messy, right?
7. Create a handy kit with all your hair essentials
Even the best planned hairstyles can fall apart. Which is why you need a miniature hairstyling kit that contains bobby pins, hair ties, a small comb and a travel-sized dry shampoo bottle. You can easily carry it to the venue and stash it in the bride’s dressing room for unwanted emergencies.
8. Keep those hair accessories in check
Maang tikas and other hair accessories can be a little tricky to handle and have the ability to completely ruin your hairstyle. Control the movement of the maang tika on your forehead by sticking a tiny piece of double-sided tape on the back so that it sticks to your forehead. Use a bobby pin to add some extra adhesion to the decorative jura pin that also looks pretty with your outfit. Try these little hacks, and thank us later!
9. Get that extra hair shine - instantly!
With all the wedding madness, it’s tough to find time to pamper your hair. We absolutely understand that you sometimes need to resort to hacks to make sure your mane is selfie-perfect for the big day! Here’s a trick we love - before going in for a shower, massage your hair with some freshly squeezed lemon juice and follow it up with the regular shampoo-conditioning routine. It’ll make sure your tresses look fresh, bouncy and most importantly shiny, for the main wedding event.
10. Don’t forget to match your hairstyle with your clothes and accessories!
Sounds like obvious advice, but you’d be surprised at how often people forget this simple step. When you’re deciding on the hairstyles for the different functions, make sure to try it on with your outfit. It’s important to know what hairstyle looks best with the cut of your blouse… Or whether the bun you’re dying to try will look good with the kundan set you’ve set your heart on!* This is a sponsored post for Godrej.
