7 Bridal Hairstyling Ideas for your Big Day

MAGIC – that’s what every girl wants to look on her wedding day. To achieve this magic, brides-to-be  spend hours and weeks to merely plan or rehearse their dresses, jewelry, nails, etc. However, we feel the most important part of accessorizing a bride is the way her hair is styled. Hairstyles enhance the overall personality of a bride and add the final touch of glam to complete her bridal look.

So here we’ve listed a few hair styles that can be tried in short, medium and long hair:

1. Curled open hairstyle – If you have short hair or medium length hair, you can totally rock this. First, part and pin your hair at the back as well as sides to create a light puff on the head. Now, start adding the sleek curls to the length of your hair. Bring the hair to the front from over one shoulder. You can add a matching head accessory once done.

2. Side bun with a Dutch braid – If you’ve got a really long and voluminous hair, try this out. French braid your hair until half way. After you’re done with the French braid, continue with a normal braid. Then wrap the normal braid around the side bun. To add more drama, you can tease the hair at the crown beforehand so it looks like a crown.

3. Fishbone style full braid – If you’re wondering what to do with your uber long hair, plait it fishbone style topping it up with gorgeous white pearls or other hair accessories. Part your hair at the side of the head and collect the total volume to the front from over your shoulder. Then tie the whole length of your hair in a thick fishbone plait, leaving only a little portion of your hair open at the end.

Take a curler and create waves from ears down. Build some volume at the crown by teasing your hair with a tooth comb. Gather your hair into a low ponytail twisting along the nape and pinning it as you proceed. After you reach your ear, curl the remaining hair and pin them back over the twist. To keep your hair in place, spray some volume lifting hairspray Finally, scrunch and curl the wispy ends with your finger tips for a perfect finish.

5. Low Updo –  If you want a simple look, you can try the low updo decorating it with flowers. You can start with securing a loose ponytail at the nape of the neck. Pull the ponytail tighter underneath the base to make sure it stays in place. Once you’ve secured it, divide the ponytail into two sections, then twist them until you reach the end of the ponytail. Ginally, wrap the twist around the base of the ponytail forming a bun.

6. Curly Tendrils Updo – If you’re a classic version of a Grecian Goddess, this will make you thank us a tons! First, gather your long hair into a mid-level pony tail. Bring your curled hair together, wrap and tuck it. Leave a few spirals out for details. With this, you can wear an olive branch hair accessory to complete your Goddess look.

6 Creative Wedding Proposal Ideas

Life takes many twists and turns, but some moments stay longer than the usual. ‘Unforgettable’ is the word normally used to for such moments in life that transform our usual life experiences into something unexpected, special or out of the blue.

These milestones in life are bigger turning points like – Births, graduation ceremonies, school farewell, weddings, and so on. It often takes weeks, months and even years to plan the ‘perfect’ moment for such occasions. One such memorable occasion is your marriage proposal. Flowers, sky-writing, love notes, or ring in the champagne glass are traditional, don’t you wanna try something new?

Here is a list of ways you can try to find out the answer to the most important question of life.

1.  If your bae is a movie buff

If she can’t stop thinking about Kajol’s towel-dance in DDLJ wondering ‘Kaisa hai, kaun hai woh jaane kahaan hai’, give her the most Bollywood-iest proposal by recording lots of clips of both of you together in several places, outfits, situations and days making memories. You could then compile all of this and set some romantic background tracks that is set to woo the Simran of your life.

2.  If your babe is adventuresome

Is your girl headstrong and loves living life on the edge? Let her have some fun before you put that big question at her. Coordinate a well-planned scavenger hunt, starting off with a clue someplace nearby and let that progress as you keep dropping hints at intervals.

Have the destination somewhere you can hide and pop out of nowhere getting down on your knees!

3.   If your sweetheart is a wordsmith

Does your girl love flaunting her gifted vocabulary? Does she spend half of her day solving crosswords? Wrap up a custom jigsaw puzzle and let your sweetie solve it and spell out the pieces – ‘W-I-L-L   Y-O-U   M-A-R-R-Y   M-E?’

 

4.  If your beloved is a book-a-holic

One-sided rope braid caressing her satin dress with the locks of her hair making tiny curves round her earlobes and her gaze lowered down immersed in a book. Is she that carefree soul sitting in one corner of a library with the glow of her careless beauty strewn all around?

Make your bookworm an amazing proposal flipbook.

Let her flip through the pages as your words make way into her mouth, shining bright in her smile while she reads your question!

5.  If your intended is a fashionista

If your honey cannot think beyond that MAC Frost Lipstick or the new Lakme Skin Gloss, pamper her with all her favourite products and shades, and while she gets all hyped about it – slip her a cute expressive note inside one of those tiny packages.

6.  Switch gender roles

Before we switch over to another topic next week we’d like to leave you with some food for thought. While men have traditionally proposed to their would-be, there isn’t any rule barring the other gender to put on their thinking caps and surprise the love of their life with the handsomest marriage proposal. So don’t keep waiting and watching, don that superwoman cape and shout loud those beautiful words to the king of your kingdom!
