BY The WMG Bride | 09 Sep, 2015 | 5576 views | 5 min read

Hair is such an integral part of a bride's big day - well, yes, even if it's probably covered by the damn dupatta or it's never photographed , there is something about flowers and hair that go together like wine and cheese.  No wonder our brides love all the hair attention we can get, so we picked out 20+ Bridal hair inspirations for the modern bride. So many cool ideas to suit every palate. Enjoy!  

1. Back Bun with Jasmine


Archana & Sheeraj's Thailand Wedding 

Back buns have always been a favourite with us - just make sure they are simple and are put together with just a strand of gajra so they show up through the net dupatta.

2. High-bun with Tiny roses

Tiny roses are so avant-garde and when they are put together like a maze on a high bun, they exude a certain vintage vibe!

3. Braided Bun with Kitshy Hair Accessory 


Puja & Shiv's Wedding 

Braided buns are amazing - they give volume to the hair and suit fine hair-ed girls. When paired with a strand of flowers around them and a kitschy hair accessory - they're just perfect!

4. Full roses for a Vintage Look

Bright pink roses make for great additions - they add contrast to the lehenga and give out a Parisian elegant twist.

5. Roses Under the Bun

Peach roses are our biggest love - they give out a very delicate feminine vibe and make sure your look is classy and smart at the same time.

6. Full Mogra Hair

A full gajra hair plait is tradition practically but newer brides have been draping them more beautifully every year!

7. Gajra Two-toned Hairdo with Two Kinds of Flowers with Juda Pin

Use two kinds of flowers one on top of the other so you have balance and contrast. Pin them with a juda pin for amazing photographs.

8. Long Flower Braid

Sonam & Rahul's Wedding; Prerna & Abhineet's Wedding 

Add a floral braid with a neat paranda to add a bit of tradition and spunk to your outfit.

9. Petals in your braid

How elegant do these wispy petals look in the braids of these Pakistani brides? Delicate and feminine , this is an unusual way to use flowers.

10. Delicate 'Baby's breath' flowers on your hair

11. Side Swept Hair with Flowers

Side swept hair is a great option for brides who are looking for a chilled-out hairdo. But do look for flowers that are non-traditional like carnations etc.

12. Full Gajra


The Story Weavers★ 4.8

A full gajra bun is a welcome change in a sea of "done-to-death" hairdos.

13. Sparse Floral Additions

If you don't want to go over-the-top, then look for just sparse floral ideas like this one to stay on top of the trend game.

14. Typical South-India Flower Hairdo with Temple Jewellery

The jasmine and temple jewellery route has been explored before but it still takes top draw at weddings. Change the flowers or go completely crazy over with jewellery to add more drama.

15. Modern Gajra Braid

Almost like a modern-day mohawk, this maang tika + floral hairdo is so unique and awesome that it gets our vote ASAP.

16. Big Roses

Big roses are great for modern brides - just choose a colour like white or light pink so it doesn't take away the glamour from your outfit.

17. Floral Hair-bands

The good thing about this look is how it incorporates jewellery and flowers so effortlessly. The awesome thing about it is the fact that floral hairbands are not just limited to bridesmaids - they can crafted beautifully to fit your hair too!

18. The Half Moon Bun

A fun bun and a half-moon strand of flowers are so so modern and so contemporary, also minimal effort!

19. The Waterfall

This is another fairly common floral hairdo in the south. A bunch of jasmine strands are taken together and pinned so that they fall on the bride like a waterfall. Cute!

20. The Concentric Circles

This one is super easy - just have two circles - one small, inside the bun and the other around it. Pin a nice accessory and you're set!

21. The Rose Line-up

Just add a line of roses at the top of the bun and accentuate them with a nice pearl necklace. So so chic!
