Parlour Wali Didi Who? 12 Easy Braided Hairstyles You Can Make Yourself On Your Mehendi

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!

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.
