A wedding is a magical time where every detail is important and has to be well thought out. If you are a devoted fan of both runways and weddings, so many things can be an inspiration! Straight from the runways to the mandap, or engagement party, or reception, we have ideas that will get you noticed!
A detail that is an essential part of your bridal look is 'the hairdo', and it has got to be a show-stealer! You can take oodles of inspiration from the fashion runway trends that trickle down to our day-to-day lives. So, here is a list of our picks from the fashion runways that would simply add on to your look.
Twisted ropes, classic braids to messy styles, all have been a huge success on the 2015 runways. An ideal style for both Indian and international desi brides, a braid can complement both the lehenga and the gown. Messy braids would specifically look good on the occasions of sagan or sangeet, with Indo-western outfits.
Fashion designer Suneet Varma sent his models down the runway, at Lakme India Fashion Week Summer Resort 2015, with braids adorned with flowers and ribbons. Even international designers like Donna Karan and Michael Kors, have splashed their runways with braids this season.
Bridal buns have always been a grand fixture at Indian weddings. This season, they appeared on the Indian as well as international runways. They were showcased by designers like Anamika Khanna, Karishma Jamwal, Edun and Erin Fetherston, looking ever so glamourous. The adornments for this hairdo might differ from bride to bride, but the idea for the style is the same. It is a classic beauty fix with sophistication.
Big, polished and poufy buns aside, messy buns are also a great option. They can be styled differently, like a side bun for mehendi or as a decorated bun for your reception party. Seen on designer Reem Acra’s runways with glowing floral adornments, this style has truly wowed us! Indian designer, SS Surya, also showcased an edgier version of the messy bun at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2015 runway.
Half-up half-down hairstyles have been a staple for a lot of international brides. The trend has also started gaining popularity amongst the Indian brides, and we are certainly not complaining. It is feminine, romantic, pretty and we are in love with it! Being an ideal way to flaunt the length of your hair, whilst supporting a beautiful hairdo, this style has been another prominent feature on the ramps this year. Bollywood actress, Neha Dhupia, sashayed down at designer Sonu Dharnidharka's runway at the Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2015, sporting such a hairdo. Even international designer Valentino showed off this style on his runway.
Curls are the definition of romance! Verandah by Anjali, Carolina Herrera, Marchesa and many more have flaunted this hairstyle on their runways. Curls are the go-to style for any function. You can gather them on the side, decorate them with flowers, or even add a tender braid in between. Brides with short hair can also sport this style with a jewelled hair band.
When you tie the knot, do not forget to bling up your hairdo as well! Perfect for the D-day, it is hard to say if these embellishments trickled down from the ramp to the aisle or vice-versa. Embellishments have certainly reserved a spot for themselves on the must-have bridal list. They just take the hairstyles to new heights. The most shining example for these was represented by designer giant Dolce and Gabbana!!
Your hair is your crowning glory on your wedding day! Wear it in style, and wear it with pride.
