Best Wedding Hairstyles for Indian Brides & Grooms

The wedding season is around the corner and whether it’s your wedding reception or your engagement, you are going to be the centre of attraction during the entire event with all the eyes  & cameras set on you. It will be the biggest and most memorable day of your life and you would like to look like a million bucks. Both the bride and the groom’s trousseau for these events need to be special. Depending on the style and color of the trousseau, the jewelry, the makeup and the hairstyle of the couple need to be worked on. The bride and the groom’s hairdo is as important as their special attire for the wedding day and thus needs equal or rather more attention and time than the latter.

To look resplendent in your perfect hairdo on your wedding day, you need to take care of your hair and maintain them well for the “big day”. You need to follow a hair care regime for at least two months in advance. Visit a good salon and get a rejuvenating hair spa treatment done for that lustrous look on the final day. You need to get an oil massage done regularly to condition and nourish your hair to salvage them from any previous damage done by chemical treatments, hair styling products, regular blow drying etc. You could also get your hair colored and trimmed as per your liking and your wedding attire. For the enhanced effect and natural appearance, the hair coloring and trimming need to be done at least one or two weeks in advance, before the wedding day. Getting them done a few days prior might end up in a disaster with no time left for any rectification. To ensure that your hairstyle for a marriage reception looks perfect, you need to book an appointment with a hair salon of repute.

Your major dilemma of which hairstyle to go for, can be easily solved through the help of a professional hairstylist. You can get a down style, an updo style, a braid or curly locks. Curly, straight or wavy whatever may be the hair texture and whatever, maybe the hair length, there’s so much you can do with your hair!
