How To Select The Perfect Bengali Bridal Hairstyle?
So here is a checklist of steps you need to take while selecting the hairstyle for your wedding.
Ponder Upon Your Overall Wedding Theme And Outfit and the Shape of Your Face
The first thing you need to consider while choosing your hairstyle is what your dress is and the type of wedding you are having. Whether it is a minimalist one, Royal, Traditional, Modern or anything else. You need to ensure next that your hairstyle enhances the look of your outfit, rather than affecting it. For a minimalist modern event, where you are wearing a bodycon gown, you may go with neat mid parted hair or a ponytail depending upon the shape of your face.
Think Of The Kind Of Headwear You Have To Carry
The next thing to consider is the type of headgear you are wearing. Whether it is a veil. Or a stone studded tiara, a floral crown or the traditional Sholar Mukut. If you have wavy or curly hairs, loose and open set hairs can be capable of holding your tiara well, in place. But in the case of sleek and straight hair, you need to go for tying them up into buns or braids, for a better grip.
Look Out For Examples
The best ideas come from days and months of detailed research. So, before you finalise a style, go through as many inspirations as you can find in terms of the Bengali marriage hairstyle. There are plenty of options to look at on the internet, be it Instagram, Pinterest or google images. In fact, you are going to find some top picks in the latter part of this blog. Another good place to seek inspiration is keeping your eyes open when you attend any other wedding receptions, just a few days before yours. Who knows, you might end up with an inspiration for your perfect Bengali bridal hairstyle there?
Pay Attention To The Shine
Now, would you like to feature a drab looking frizzy hair in your wedding photos? 🤔🤔 No right?!
So you need to make sure that your hair looks healthy and shiny on your day. Make sure to wash your hair and condition them with some anti-frizz product. Also use a generous amount of serum before you let those heated tools like dryers, straighteners or curling rods touch your tress. You may even go for a professional hair spa treatment a day or two before your wedding day. This shall nourish and add to the health of your locks from within.
Add To The Length If Possible
You are the queen of the event! And you would definitely want to feel the regal and elegance of one, at least while you carry your bridal look. Your hairs shall play a frontline role in the scene. The longer your hairs are, the more options you get to unlock for your Bridal tresse. There are definitely hairstyles for shorter hairs, which are equally good. But with longer hairs, you can go for a wider range of buns, braids or even half updo styles. Haven't got much time to grow your hair? No worries, you can always get your hands on some good quality hair extensions. Match your hair type and colour and have those perfect long hairs for styling your special day!
