Accessorised With Flowers

Braids & Curls Combo

This is one of the most trending styles right now. The bride here has styled using different sizes and styles of braids. It is great how a central messy braid is followed by two smaller braids. And the great thing is that the entire hairstyle has been styled without any accessories.

While open hairstyles are beautiful, there are a few things which you have to keep in mind. If you are using a heavy shawl, then you need to go for a bridal bun. So opt for this for one of the pre-wedding events or if you are using a light shawl. Also, open hair is a bad idea for windy venues and outdoor summer weddings.
