Side updos look so chic. And for a relaxed evening look, a side bun is just perfect. From a sari to a gown, this is one hairdo that’ll look good with almost any outfit. Plus, if it’s going to be a night of dancing, you won’t have to worry about those nasty flyaways.
2. Elegant vintage waves

God, we love this one! Side swept hair and glamorous waves. Now that’s how you do vintage right. Pretty up your hairdo with a statement hair accessory and we swear, you’ll rock the reception night.
3. Hollywood glam!

A half up, half down hairdo - this one is just SO stunning. There is lots of volume at the crown while the front is delicately puffed up and parted to the side. With ringlets at the ends and all the hair swept to one side, this sure is one look straight out of Hollywood!
4. The bouquet bun

The hair and makeup artist called it a bouquet bun and we couldn’t agree more. Give the basic bun a fab new look with twisted strands and lots of volume. Tuck in a matching rose behind the ear and there you are, the beautiful newlywed bride!
5. The stylish top knot

Ooh… How stylish! For an offbeat, contemporary look opt for the top knot. It’s different, it’s easy and it is the hairstyle for the new age bride. A top knot looks great with gowns and indo western wedding outfits.
6. Braid it in style!

Don’t just get any braid, get one with a fresh new twist like this one! Don’t you just love it?! Lots of texture, a slight pouf and a messy fishtail… now this is how you do it in style. With a sari or a lehenga or an anarkali, this one hairstyle is the perfect blend of traditional yet modern.
7. The glam ponytail

New age and glamorous, a ponytail is such an amazing hairstyle for your reception night. It’s chic, it’s modern and it sure will look great with a gown, a lehenga and even a sari! We are loving this low pony with a tousled and twisted front.
8. The twisted front

A twisted braid that runs from the front, down the sides and to the back is such a pretty hairdo for that special night. If you want to keep it simple, this half up, half open style is the way to go. Pretty up with flowers to match your outfit and you’re done!
9. Tight curls all the way!

Look like a true Bollywood belle on your reception night with gorgeous curls. For the newlywed girl who does not want to settle for anything but the best, this look is a sure shot winner. Tight curls with lots of volume will especially look great with your reception gown.
10. Keep it simple

Simple and subtle, if that’s your style, then this hairdo is what you’d like. Pull back half the hair and tease the front for some natural volume. We love how the rest of the hair has been straightened for an elegant and relaxed look.
