With over six months into the coronavirus pandemic, we all (including brides) have learnt to be #AtmaNirbhar for several things. Case in point - most of the lockdown brides in India, who planned to go ahead with an intimate wedding, did their own makeup and hair instead of depending on a professional makeup artist. And you can too! Now, we’ve already given you tutorials on how to ace your makeup for the D-day, so here’s some inspiration for that killer hairdo.
When it comes to bridal hairstyles, the mehendi hairstyle is the most fun one. It's a day event so your hair gets as much footage as your outfit, not to mention the freedom to show their true colours (no pun intended). So, dear brides-to-be, we’ve curated some easy-peasy hairstyles that you can DIY on your mehendi within minutes!
12 Braided Hairstyles For Your Mehendi
From a fluffy ponytail to the classic half-up half-down style, here are some of the prettiest hairstyles that you can flaunt on your mehendi.
Who needs roses as hair accessory when you can actually twist your tresses to resemble the swirls of the flower!? We’re loving how this bride added multiple braids to the hairdo and further decorated it with fresh flowers.
Adding a simple parandi to your basic braid will take your mehendi hairstyle from nay to yay in no time. The best thing about this one is that it’s pretty easy to do and will take far less time than any other hairstyle.
We all love french braids, yes! But have you tried combining it with a voluminous ponytail? Well, we’re in love with this bride’s neat and all tied-up look for her wedding function. If you’re a bride who wants a classy yet fun look on her mehendi, go for this one.
Walk like a queen with this beautiful crown braid hairstyle. You can either go for curls and a hair accessory in the middle (just like this bride) or opt for straight hair and decorate your tresses with some fresh flowers.
If you have short hair and feel you can’t carry a chic hairstyle, think again. Messy braids are and will always be one of our favourite wedding hairstyles. That with some fresh flowers in your hair is something you can never go wrong with.
If you don’t want to use flowers in your hair, just add a statement or bejewelled accessory to your braided hairstyle and you’re good to go. This bride went for a half-tie hairdo with twisted braids and decorated it with a piece of stunning hair jewellery.
Even though Sonam Kapoor’s wedding is long over, the hair trend that she started is still making waves. Just like Sonam, a lot of brides are opting for floral strings twisted around their braids to create an easy-going look for their mehendi. So can you!
