8 Chic bridal bun hairstyles which are new age

BY The WMG Bride | 09 Sep, 2016 | 4769 views | 3 min read

First off, if you haven't checked out todays real wedding on our gallery go ahead and do that right here. Then come back and read this post for hairstyle inspiration- specially if you are a bride who will be covering her head with a dupatta The problem
  • If you are having a dupatta pinned on your head, chances are your hairdos are going to be limited because you need a solid, bun like structure to hold up the dupatta
  • Though buns are pretty, Indian bridal buns have become quite boring and can age you five years !
However, real brides are our style inspirations and these brides chose buns that are chic and new age    

#1 . The Victorian Bun

Red Carpet bride Sonal had an ultra chic twisty bun, which was low and to one side. The hair was taken in sections and twisted upwards into a victorian hairstyle. What added the grace was that the dupatta was kept pinned over the bun, not directly on the head giving a delicate, modern look  

#2 Twisty Bun

This stunning bride from a Band Baaja Bride episode shot by Sutra Snapperz, had her hair in an ultra chic bun. What was so lovely was that all her hair was done in curls rolled up and pinned to the head. The front of the hair was flipped back as well- which was our favourite part of this hairdo. Very chic.

#3 . Bun With Modern Hair Accessories

#4 Twisted Side Bun

#5. Soft Low Bun

Elegant and Timeless, having a soft , low bun adds innocence and softness to your entire bridal ensemble.

#6. Front twist bun

#7. Side swept bun

#8 Slightly messy, center part buns

  • While top knots may suit your face, do remember that once your dupatta is draped on them they can end up looking a tad bit strange so go for a medium or low bun
  • Avoid flicks as they end up sticking to the face and making your hair look messy over time
  • If you have a wider face, then add volume around your hair to balance it out, a tight swept back hairstyle can make your face look wider
  • These days, brides are pinning the dupatta further back on the head  as compared to earlier. This gives an added grace and frees up the front of your hair for some creativity.

Don't forget to show some reference hairstyles to your makeup artist for your big day
