Asian Bridal Hairstyles for Indian and European Weddings
Traditional asian wedding hairstyles used to be plaits however now because of the popularity of heavily embellished wedding outfits with heavy dupattas, the most practical hairstyle is the bridal bun which can only be achieved with the use of padding and hair pieces.
The bridal hairstyles below are just a small selection of hairstyles we offer as a bridal hairstylist for your wedding, and are taught on our 3 day asian bridal hairstyling course. Most of the hairstyles below are achievable whether you have long or short hair. The hairstyles these days tend to be stylishly messy or neat bridal hairstyles. They tend to vary from different type of bridal buns to plaits or braids.
Asian bridal hairstyles change significantly from season to season drawing inspiration sometimes from western wedding hairstyle trends, fashion shows, or popular celebrity hairstyles. Because of this fusion, European and Indian bridal hairstyles are now used in all types of weddings.
You should consult your hairdresser for tips and advice on hair care specific to your hair to maintain healthy looking hair, for example, a common problem encountered by women today is thinning hair. Asian wedding hairstyles are mostly achieved with long thick hair. Do not despair if you do not have luscious flowing locks, as the problem can be remedied with the use of hair pieces, padding , and / or hair extensions.
The advice I give to all my brides during the consultation with me is to allow their hair to grow as long as possible (unless it is already long i.e. waist length or longer) during the months leading up to their wedding functions, although it is advisable to trim the hair prior to the wedding to get rid of any split ends.
Please note if you require hair extensions it is advisable to buy good quality human hair extensions which can be styled and re-used. Depending on your personal preference these can be woven in (by your hairdresser) or they can be clip in hair extensions.
Our 3 day hairstyling course is designed so that the student is able to achieve all the above hairstyles in just 3 days. We teach the student the foundations of the hairstyles and the correct method so that many hairstyles can be created from a single foundation.
