Hairstyles with Accessories – Indian Wedding Guests

Hi,

The wedding season is soon approaching! While we plan our outfits days in advance, the hair and makeup is often left till the last minute. I am personally not fond of spending thousands on professional makeup and hair for a friend or distant cousin’s wedding. My mantra is do-it-yourself. Few posts back I had listed makeup tutorials for the main wedding functions- mehendi, sangeet and wedding day, and today we will be talking about hairstyle using hair accessories.

There are five Indian wedding hairstyles using accessories listed below, along with product recommendation and a inspiration picture there are video tutorials for each. The inspiration and video tutorial are of different hairstyles thereby giving you more options to style each accessory.

First up is the most common Indian hair accessory- the maang-tika. You could choose between traditional polki encrusted maang-tikas to modern clear stone maang-tikas. As for styling you could choose between simple side part open hair style to loose waves middle part hair style as shown in the picture above. Kaushal teaches us a half up- half down hairdo with the maang-tika (watch the video from 6:36 for the hair tutorial).
