14 Beautiful Ways To Style The Traditional Gajra On Your Wedding Day!

Baby's-breath might be all the rage this season but a traditional gajra never loses its charm. Our mom's wore it at their wedding and the mogra flowers still make for a pretty hair accessory that also smells fabulous. However, you might want to style it differently so as not to look too old school. From criss-cross gajras to gajra chaadar, here are the 14 amazing ways to style your gajra.   

1. The criss-cross style

Who better than the style godess to inspire your wedding hairdo. Sonam Kapoor opted for a simple gajra on her sangeet night, only that it did not really look that regular! Intertwine the gajra strand with your plait for a criss-cross style that's sure to grab eyeballs. 

2. Gold toned gajras

Gold toned gajras are a thing and we sure love them! If you're okay to swap the fresh flowers with an artificial but super stylish gajra, then go for this. A gold gajra will complement your red lehenga oh-so-well! 

3. Wear it down

8. The traditional single string gajra

If you don't want to experiment with your gajra then you can opt for the single string around your bun to add that touch of tradition and elegance.  

9. Side braids with a gajra

Now who would've thought of this! Side braids are anyway big this wedding season. All you need to do is pin up some gajra strings, just like Sonam did, to uplift this simple hairdo. Ditch the messy braid for the mehendi function and opt for this instead.   

10. Twirl it round

Twirl, twirl and some more twirl. How about twisting and twirling a gajra on your messy pony or braid? While most brides opt for single flowers to deck up their braid, you can stand out by twirling a gajra around it. 

11. Nothing beats a full gajra bun

The most elegant gajra style that always looks gorgeous and will never go out of style. It doesn't require much of styling and is a complete fuss free look to go for.

12. Hang in there!
