The bride’s hairstyle didn't always have such an importance in Punjabi weddings. Now, however, a hairstyle for the bride plays as important of a role as the rest of the wedding details. Whether up, down, formal or relaxed, a Punjabi bride has several different hairstyle options from which to choose.

Traditional Style

If your wedding is traditional, you may wish to coordinate your hairstyle in a more traditional way as well. Traditionally, Punjabi brides wear their hair in upsweeps or styled in a bun. This allows access to the neck for when the groom ties the necklace around the bride’s neck as a symbol of their union.

Loose Style

Punjabi wedding festivities can last days on end, so you may want to opt for hairstyle that is loose rather than tight. Hairstyles that are pulled tight or require bobby pins or other items to keep it in place may bother you after a few hours and may even cause a headache.

Parted Styles

Another more traditional hairstyle to consider is one with a part that goes down the middle of the head. Many Punjabi brides wear a jewel that hangs on the forehead as an accessory, middle parts--whether hair is up or down--accentuates this area of the forehead.

Hair Decorations

Many Punjabi brides add decorations to adorn their hair. Some common choices for Punjabi brides include hair sequins or hair beads. Typically, these are spread throughout the hair and are in colours that coordinate with the bride’s dress.

Tips

You may want to practice your hairstyle leading up to the wedding, so you can make adjustments to the style if needed and ensure you choose a hairstyle that works well with your outfit.

Punjabi brides wear a veil during the beginning of the ceremony, so you’ll want to account for the veil when choosing a hairstyle and hair adornments.
