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.

Ta-da! A gorgeous Indian bridal hairstyle for lehenga!

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!

    Low bun has always been my fav and I love that soft braid as well described by you. Welcome back babe 😘 I have missed your blog posts.

    • Awe, thank you so much babe! I missed writing too, hopefully there won’t be any troubles moving on. 😀 Low bun is one of my personal favourites too. 🙂

  • All of these styles look so regal. I absolutely love all the styles you have chosen.

  • Rose Mont

    I had a loose braid when I got married. My favorite here is the open volume. All those curls hanging are pretty.

  • Simply Apostolia

    My favorite one is the 4th but I could go with 5th too! They are not only for a wedding.. I would go for them maybe for a prom or if i would be a guest in a fancy event… They are really awesome!

  • Rose Sahetapy

    I can’t really pick which one is my favourite because all these styles are gorgeous and really elegant. I love how the flowers decorated on the bun of the 3rd style.

  • Hung T. Tran

    They are all very gorgeous. It’s hard to pick my favorite, but the floral one stands out a lot. It brings huge element to the look.

  • Vasundhra Singh

    I opted for a bun at my wedding. It looked traditional and went well with the lehnga I was wearing. The open volume hairstyle looks very pretty, I will try it for a family function!

  • Rebecca

    I think my favourite is the volume curls. And I would definitely choose to have the flowers too – just beautiful!

  • kathryn Maher

    Great looks here for an Indian Wedding Bride or indeed any bride. I love in particular the low bun with the flowers in it. Its different and yet elegant and you could match the flowers to your wedding bouquet.

  • Maro Akamatra

    I think I like the low bun the best. It’s very elegant and compliments all hair types

  • Khushboo Motihar

    These look so stylish. I am not getting married any time soon but would love to try these out for a family function 🙂

  • Joanna

    Gorgeous hair styles I love the open volume and the side parted curls. They are definitely my 2 favourites. I went for something nothing like these though when i got married.

  • Laura Dove

    Oh how pretty! I love the more natural styles, I had my hair in a very loose bun with lots of soft waves.

  • I seriously don’t know which hairstyle I like more. I love that you wrote how to do them. I’m going to bookmark your post. ❤️

  • Eliza Casipagan

    I am always amazed on their hairstyle. Women are so elegant, stylish and revealing their true beauty. For bridal style I always go for the floral bun.

  • I always love Indian dress and I think that a floral bun or a half up half down curly hair style would compliment a lengha beautifully. I need to get better at doing hair!

  • So true about our hair. If it looks frumpy, I’ll feel frumpy too, no matter what I’m wearing. I just love all of these looks. Especially the side part curls and the soft braid. While I wouldn’t be brave enough to tackle them myself, I’d instead take the photos to my hairdresser and ask her to please recreate them. x

  • Cassandra R

    These hairstyles are so intricate and beautiful! The floral bun is definitely my favorite. I’d love to grow my hair out long enough to do it.

  • Annemarie LeBlanc

    Personally, I think the side parted curls would be best for a young bride. For more mature women, the low bun or the flower bun would be the best.

  • My Teen Guide

    The floral bun is my top choice. This is the most versatile because it can be done for any hair length, except probably for the very short hair length. Flowers add more femininity too.

  • The floral bun is my favourite. I think that would suit me just fine. Love the other hairstyles too.

  • Takara Ayana

    All of the hairstyles are beautiful! I especially love the low bun and the floral bun. I will have to save these for future reference!

  • Eloise Maoudj Riley

    I’m loving the low bun and the open volume styles for sure! It is true that hairstyles make or break a look… ; )

  • Hayden Scharrer

    Love the low bun and soft braid! I usually opt for a low bun for a sleek wedding style!

  • These brides all look lovely. I had my hair in a high bun for my wedding. The floral bun is great!

  • Oh, those must be the most gorgeous hairstyle I’ve ever seen! That flower bun is amazing. i would need someextra hair to be able to have any of these, but I can still keep dreaming on them.

  • All of these styles are truly darling, and perfect for any traditional weeding.

  • Wow all these hairstyles look incredible, especially the floral bun. Don’t think I’ve ever seen it presented that way. I’m saving that look for a special occasion when I want to try to do something extra special.

  • Victoria Moore

    Wow, these are so beautiful! I can only imagine how long it takes to style them lol. Gorgeous, and totally worth the time.
