#2. Donut bun with a turn at the centre and a gajra border

One of the most loved hairstyles for a bride to pair with a saree is always a bun. It not only helps a bride lay the entire focus on the saree but also helps them in being fuss-free. Here all you need is to make a simple ponytail with a big-sized rubber band. Afterwards, turn the hair outwards from the rubber band circling it and put another sleek one. Now, take the rest of the hair and round around the band and add a beautiful gajra to it. 

#3. Braided bun with a semi-circular gajra

Another type of bridal hairstyle for sarees, whether with minimal effort, one can easily make an elegant look. To get this, one must first pull back their hair with a soft puff and make a braid. Afterwards, you need to curl up the braid according to the rubber band and add a semi-circular gajra from below. However, in this case, the hairdo must be tightened properly with clips.

#4. Low bun with two parts of hair adorned with a hair clip

The simple, neat buns can also be adorned with stunning hair accessories like clips, pearl chains and many more. One needs to make a middle partition in front of the face and firmly add the two parts of hair at the back with a few clips.

#5. Neat and twisted bun adorned with pearl jewellery

While some brides prefer messy hairstyles to match their funky personalities, others opt for a classy look. How can this classy look be attained? So, being one of the easiest hairstyles to pair with the sarees, the brides can simply put their pin-straight hair into a sleek low height bun. Now, adding a few pearl accessories gives a classy look to the gorgeous lady and can also make up for the unavailability of gajra or other carnations.

#6. Messy twisted bun with pearl clips and front bangs

Here is another modern reception hairstyle for a bride which needs minimal effort. You can comb your hair as it is and it doesn't even require the efficiency to make it neat by pulling each strand in a straight manner. Now, leave some bangs for the front portion and make a twisted bun. And just with the addition of pearl chains and clips would complete the look.

#7. Bouquet bun with crown gajra and jewelled net

A bridal hairstyle for long hair means it needs a more firm way of putting it together throughout the long-going rituals. Thus, in this case, a net bun can easily help to firmly hold the entire hair in place. All you need to do is, comb back the entire hair and keep it tight inside the net. In addition, floral carnations can be added on the top of the bun giving it a bouquet look.

#8. Messy side-parted bun adorned with roses and carnations

The messy side-parted bun adorned with roses and carnations is nothing but a similar adaptation to what we do in the messy buns with circular or semi-circular gajra.

#10. Clean criss-cross bun accented with gajra ring

A traditional-yet-modern hairstyle for a newly-wedded lady is the clean criss-cross bun accented with a gajra ring. So, what needs to be done to attain this hairdo? You need to make a side-parting of the frontal portion of the hair. Afterwards, take the middle part and make a soft puff. Following this, leave the longer portion of the middle partition and take the rest of the hair and make a braid and add that braid in a circular formation. Now, add a circular ring of gajra and cross it with the longer hair strand of the middle partition.

#11. Bun with elevated strands of hair and a crown 

This crown bun hairdo explains the royalty of a lady in herself. Just as a queen wears her crown, the brides and bridesmaids can also add a similar shaped floral strand on the top of their buns. It not only vanishes the buns' pale look but also holds them tightly in place.
