5 Classic Bridal Hairstyles That Complement The Lehenga
Everyone who knows anything about fashion understands the one unsaid fact of style: The hairdo can make or break your outfit. Today I'm sharing a couple of bridal hairstyles to complement your wedding lehenga (Indian wedding dress) that can totally make your look even more sorted and thought after.
When every lehenga, every paayal (anklet), every jhumka (traditional earrings) is thought out so thoroughly, we just can’t afford to rock a hairstyle that doesn’t seal the deal. Stressful, isn’t it? Here’re 5 bridal hairstyles for all hair types — the little cherry on top to what is, otherwise, an impeccable lehenga ensemble.
1. The Soft Braid
In my opinion, the braid is the epitome of female beauty, and believe it or not, it is incredibly easy to execute.
- First, you need to part your hair onto one side.
- Then, grab a large part of your hair from the top and split it into two sections.
- Keep intertwining these two sections together, while adding hair from the remaining section into the twist at regular intervals.
- When you get to your neck, separate all your hair into 3 equal parts and normally braid your hair until the end.
- Tie your braid using a rubber band.
Ta-da! A beautiful, effortless ensemble, the perfect bridal hairstyle on lehenga for long hair.

2. The Low Bun
Recently cut your hair into a new cute trendy ‘do’, and are now regretting it? Don’t you worry, we’ve got a hairstyle that’s just as elegant for you!
- Start off by tying a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Make a gap inside your ponytail to make space for the ponytail to fit into.
- Turn the hair in your ponytail over and into the rubber band again.
- Divide the hair coming out of the ponytail into 3 sections and braid it.
- Tuck the braid back into the gap you made in the ponytail from the top so that the braid is visible. Secure the braid in its position using pins.
And there you go, a gorgeous hairstyle on lehenga for short hair!

3. The Floral Bun
Taking off from the theme of flowers, this ‘do’ is the perfect example of tradition and beauty.
- Carefully brush your hair back, and tie your hair into a ponytail at the bottom of your neck.
- Wrap the ponytail around your head into a bun and secure it in place using pins.
- Arrange the flower garland around the bun and secure that too with pins.

4. Open volume
This hairstyle is the epitome of ‘simplicity is key’, and is the perfect bridal hairstyle to go with your lehenga for medium hair. All you are going to need for this hairstyle is a curling iron and a comb!
- Gently separate your hair into many bunches, and use a curling iron to curl each bunch into soft curls.
- If you’re concerned about the curls unraveling, wash your hair before-hand with a mild shampoo (to protect it from the hairspray) and then spray hairspray over all your hair.
If this look isn’t festive enough for you, gently wrap your hair using a flower garland for a gentle, decorated look!

5. The Side-parted Curls
This look is one that’s a little more chill and elegant, and therefore, more under the category of reception/bridal hairstyles for lehenga.
- You first start by smoothing your hair out with a brush. Then, take a small bunch of hair at a time and curl the bottom 4 inches of your hair with it. Do this for the entirety of your hair.
- Then, carefully sweep the hair all to one side.
- Take one thin clump of hair from both sides of your face, and pin them together at the back of your head, over your hair.
- Use a lot of pins to secure these sections in place.
An elegant look for an elegant evening!
