Here, let’s break it down. What do you see? A sleek tight bun at the nape of your neck and high hair puff style in front. First, separate hair for the back and front portion of the bridal hairstyle. Make the puff – can be easily done by a hairstylist with some back-combing and good hair products. Now, make the bun – and you are done!

Now you are ready to decorate your glamorous wedding hairstyle. Use gold, silver, pearls or diamonds – just make sure your hair ornament stays out of the puff’s way.
You already have a crown of hair, so just fringe it with a traditional mang-tikka or matha-patti that matches your earrings.

South Indian brides, take note of this trendy bridal puff hairstyle. You know you need that long thick braid adorned with ropes of jasmine flowers, jewelled hairpins or a jadai nagam. But don’t settle for the tried and tested traditional centre parted flat hair in front. Especially for those of you with a round or heavy face, as a flat centre parting can add more weight to your face. That is certainly not going to look good in your bridal photographs.
So, here’s the solution – a stylish new centre parted front puff hairstyle for the gorgeous bride you would be. So, now the question is how to get this done. If you already know how to make puff hairstyle and a neat braid, you won’t even need the help of a hairstylist. Just get your cousins and friends to help with your wedding hairstyle – it will be fun too and of course, inexpensive. Let’s not go deep into how to make and decorate the bridal braid – style it the way you would love to and make sure it matches your saree. Before you make the braid, part your hair in the front and now simply make two puffs on either side, instead of the usual one stylish front puff you make for everyday hairstyling. And just like that, you are done with the tricky part of your bridal hairstyle.
Now, you could either choose to continue on with the traditional Indian wedding hairstyle with the long braid and flowers or make a high back puff to compliment your trendy front puff hairstyle, as shown in the image above. Once you are done neatly placing your hair into a sleek hair puff style and setting it with a good hairspray, you are ready to decorate it into a bridal hairstyle worthy of stunning wedding photographs.
For those of you who love simplicity, just opt for an oversized maang-tikka. This would infact be the best way to decorate this hairstyle, especially if your braid is elaborately decorated with jewels and flowers. The simple maang-tikka in front will wonderfully balance out the heavy braid ornaments. You could also add discreet beads or pearls on the front puff hairstyle for some extra glimmer. But a heavy matha-patti is a complete no-no. It would certainly take away all the intricacy of the puff hairstyle. This wedding hairstyle for long hair best suits a saree, but if you are looking for a wedding hairstyle for medium hair, don’t worry – you can always seek help from hair extensions and great hair products.
In case you want do not want a braid and prefer an updo instead, this bridal puff hairstyle is versatile enough for a good transformation too. Keep the front puff hairstyle and ornaments as it is, undo the braid and tie it up into a low bun or an intricate updo, just below the high puff at the crown of your head.

Take a look at the above picture and tell me what is the first word that comes to your mind. For me, it was “pretty”. Pretty damn good this bridal puff hairstyle is! We saw center parted front puffs, high back puffs and the ever-loved simple front puff with fringes – now, feast your eyes on a side puff. I am already thinking of hair ornaments for this one and the first picture that comes to mind is a passa. So, if you are a mughal queen like muslim bride, this could be the perfect bridal puff hairstyle for you. Forget the mang-tikka and the matha-pattis, a stylish pass hanging on to one side of a bride’s forehead has always got an old world charm or royal princesses look. But hey, don’t want a passa? – keep it sleek and modern.
The bride in the image above says it all with her expression – “I am a modern Indian bride and I know what I want.” That confidence and style truly reflects in this unique puff hairstyle. Wedding hairstyle for long hair or wedding hairstyle for medium hair, this hair puff style suits everyone. The side swept-hair and high puff adds length to your face and highlights the forehead. So, if you have a round face that lacks in forehead space, this is your key to looking good in the wedding photo album. Pose for pics with a side profile – that ways the puff stays in focus and balances your regal look. Now, I don’t need to tell you how to make this puff hairstyle, do I? Take a side parting and just make your puff or better yet, show this image to your trusted hair stylists – they’ll know what to do.
The image shows the side puff hairstyle with a long braid wrapped in pretty florals. You can choose to keep it like that or experiment with the back portion of your bridal hairstyle. But, if you are doing an updo hairstyle, make sure it doesn’t stick out to be seen above or to the sides of the puff – that would easily make your head look larger, unless that is the effect you are aiming for. To decorate this bridal puff hairstyle, choose beads and pearls for the puff and flowers for the back side of the hairdo. Flaunt it in designer saree or lehenga.

But here, the puff is twisted into a fancy twirl visible from the side. Needless to say, this bridal puff hairstyle is quite a challenge.
So, you better rope in a brilliant hair stylist for your big day of celebrations. It wouldn’t be wrong if you think this hair puff style is inspired by the mohawk – see, I told you this one is for the brides who yearn for a truly unique never-before tried daring look. Additionally, there is a slightly smaller side puff for that intricate look. The rest of the hair is tucked in a tiny curled bun at the back. You can also use extensions to get the perfect curls for this.
This bridal puff hairstyle is perfect for the bride in a snow white gown for her fairytale white wedding. But let’s not make reservations here, if you think it would look great with a saree or lehenga, go for it. If it’s for the white gown, a jewelled hair pin on the side of your bun is all you need as a hair accessory.
