Go through these 5 classic bridal updos to get some cues for your wedding!
1. Traditional bun hairstyle
This is one of the most commonly preferred buns that add volume to the hair. Since veil (pallu) is a must for the bride, the updo bun secures the veil’s position on the head. Therefore, bun hairstyle or updo is preferred by most of the brides unlike South Indian brides who do not have cover their head during wedding. So they rather go for a long embellished braid. The bun is also embellished with elaborate hair accessories flanked by kundan and crystals, which are clearly visible from beneath the veil.
No matter whether the bride is wearing a saree or lehenga, this hairstyle perfectly suits the look. And for those who have short hair, they can read our article on bridal hairstyles for short hair.
