Every girl dreams for her wedding day and how she will look long before she ties the knot. Asgar Saboo, celebrity hairstylist to the likes of Cindy Crawford, Eva Longoria & Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan gives you a step by step guide to on how to get the perfect wedding hairstyle for this season on the big day!
Bun with braided ponytail
This is a traditional hairstyle which pairs perfectly with a Indian bridal attire. Perfect for long, thick hair, you can add embellishments or accessories to add glitz to your wedding look. You can style the braid in many different ways to your liking.
GET THE LOOK: Brush your hair thoroughly and tie securely at the back of your head just above the nape of your neck. Separate a small section of hair and pin loosely to keep out of the way. Braid the remaining hair in whichever style you choose and secure with a hair band the same colour as your hair. Take the remaining loose section of hair and wrap securely around the top of the ponytail to hide the hair band and fasten securely with hair grips. Add as many embellishments as your dare and spray to hold.
Side swept waves
This look is simple to achieve yet makes a big statement. Suitable for hair that is beyond shoulder length, it adds a touch of class and lots of glamour to your wedding look.
GET THE LOOK: Ensure the hair is brushed thoroughly and is preferably straight as this will make styling the hair a lot easier. Using a curling wand, separate individual 2 inch sections of hair and hold around the curling iron for 10-15 seconds. Leave the curls to hang loosely until all your hair has been curled. Once complete, gently shake out your hair to loosen but do not run your fingers through the curls as this will deconstruct them. Finally, sweep all your hair over your shoulder and spray to hold, then finish with a shine spray for extra sheen.
As an alternative to the traditional style, a fishtail braid has a contemporary twist and is more striking for your special day. Elegant and charming, this look beautifully compliments the classic wedding attire.
GET THE LOOK: Brush your hair to whichever way you want the braid to fall and separate into 2 even sections. From each section, take two individual strands and overlap one in front of the other over the rest of the hair. Continue interlocking two strands from each section of hair until the braid is finished. Secure with a plain hair band or add a flower or jewels for extra glam.
Bun with garland
Classic buns are perfect for traditional Indian Weddings. Representing true Indian culture, this look can be elegantly accessorised and when finished looks neat, pretty and polished.
GET THE LOOK: Brush your hair back from your hairline and secure at the nape of the neck with a hair band. Begin to wrap your hair around the ponytail, twisting it as your go to ensure the layers remain hidden. Then secure the bun with bobby pins that are the same colour as your hair for a clean finish. Finally, wrap a flower garland around the bun to add some beautiful detail, choosing a contrasting colour to make a bold statement. Tip: To add extra volume, separate the front sections of your hair before tying so they can later be styled into a quiff or side fringe
This is an easy style for when you are short on time. The beauty of the look is you can simply pin up your hair whilst leaving it super straight or with its natural waves. You can even add extra detail by braiding the sections or intertwining them with flowers.
GET THE LOOK: Run your finger through your hair to soften the hair but try and avoid brushing curly hair as this can lead to a frizzy look. Separate two small strands from either side of your hair and pull back and secure, braiding the strands always adds an add an extra touch to the look. For more volume, separate the top section of your hair and pull back to form a beehive before combing over to give a clean finish.
