Most people opt for winter weddings because just the thought of wearing heavy clothes, make-up and jewellery in such hot weather makes girls uncomfortable. But hey, all you summer brides-to-be need not worry because there are a number of ways in which you can beat the heat at your summer wedding. So, here are some bridal hairstyles we think will be perfect for all the functions of your summer wedding. Check them out!
The mehendi function at a summer wedding is the trickiest when the weather is warm. Don’t wear your hair lose because you won’t have your hands free to manage them and that can get annoying. Also, in summer it becomes all the more important because prickly heat and lose and untidy hair are a horrible combination.
If you have really long hair, go for a side fishtail braid like this bride did, and adorn it with flowers or tiny hair accessories. It will keep your hair tied up and still looking pretty.
If you don’t want any fuss going on with your hair at the mehendi function, put them in a pretty bun. Easy peasy!
You can also go for a regular braid and adorn your hair with some floral jewellery. This look works wonders if you have a very heavy or unique mehendi outfit. A simple hairstyle like this one will keep your hair in check and not take the focus away from your pretty outfit, so that’s a double yay!
Sangeet functions usually take place in the evening, so the scorching sunlight is not a problem anymore. But, it’s still better to keep your hair tied together in a neat hairstyle even for an evening event, because there’s a still a lot of humidity that you have to deal with.
We really like this cute and simple hairstyle, and it totally complements the bride’s heavily sequined outfit. Get your hair curled and then tie them on one side. You can put on some pretty hair accessories or just adorn it with a good ol’ mathapatti, and you’re all set!
Buns never go out of fashion - never have, never will. If you’re a no-fuss bride, then you should always opt for a bun. You can choose a pretty style that goes with your face shape and the outfit. Also, accessorising a bun is never a problem, you can either opt for a simple maangtika, or a fancy jooda pin!
This bride’s pretty hair arrangement is so photogenic. If you have a dress with a very sexy back that you totally do not want to hide under a dupatta or your hair, then you can opt for a stylish and elegant chignon. You can almost never go wrong with this one. Just make sure you choose something that complements your face structure.
You can experiment as much as you want with your looks for other wedding functions, but it’s best to play safe on your big day. You really don’t want anything to come between you and your fairytale wedding, do you?
This is the Standard Bridal Hairstyle of India, really! Almost all brides, irrespective of the season, opt for a bun hairstyle on their wedding day, and we think it’s a pretty smart choice. A bun, like we already said, is super easy to style and holds the super heavy dupattas in place. A bride is already loaded with heavy outfits, jewellery and make-up. The last thing she needs to worry about should be her hair. So, just bun it up, we say!
Now this is quite a unique hairstyle for a bride to pick on her wedding day. You can first style your hair into loose curls and then tie them into an elegant side pony. We also love how this bride used the passa to add character to her simple hairstyle.
You’re finally Mr. and Mrs. and it’s time to celebrate. Many brides pick indo-western outfits like gowns or saree gowns for their reception, so here are a couple of hairstyles that we think work well with such outfits.
The loose wavy ponytail is your best bet. This hairstyle has a dual advantage. One, you’ll be able to show off your beautiful dress with your hair neatly tied back, and two, you will be able to dance freely!
Another hairstyle that we think works wonders for a reception is the side ponytail perm. The side ponytail is quite versatile and suits almost all face shapes. Adding a perm to the side ponytail adds a funky touch to the look.
Here are all the hairstyle we think are perfect for the summer bride... Feel free to take your pick and thank us later!
