The bun is the symbol of the ultimate power dresser. Buns signify so much. We have all grown up watching our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, teachers carry their hair in a knot. No matter what role she plays, a woman, with her bun in a bun is a constant. Then there’s the wedding day where she has to look the most beautiful. She dons on her prettiest attire and the most embellished jewellery and for once lets her hair down. Here are 7 wonderful ways in which brides can rock their weddings with open hairstyles.
Rock in Weddings With Open Hairstyles
Beware of her fair hair, for she excels
All women in the magic of her locks;
And when she winds them round a young man’s neck,
She will not ever set him free again.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Let Them Loose
Let them fall on your shoulders for the big day. If you have texture, add some texture cream and pump it up. You can make use of rollers or an iron rod to achieve some loose curls.
I have always thought that if women’s hair posed so many problems, God would certainly have made us bald.”
― Marjane Satrapi, The Complete Persepolis
This embellishment can work wonders. Let your hair loose and put a heavy Matha Patti. You can also add a delicate one with multiple layers and chains. Add smoky eyes to your makeup and some kajal heavily. It not only goes well with the rest of the jewellery and attire but it also looks chic and super glamorous.

something awful was happening.”
She frowned. “Something awful was happening. It could have
got stuck in my hair.”

Braided Poof Open Hairstyle
This hairstyle is easily obtained with a curling iron, a teasing comb and some hairspray. All you have to do is tease your hair into a poof at the crown and add braids on either side and some lose curls. This is not only simple and less time consuming but is also super elegant.
Symbolic of life, hair bolts from our head[s]. Like the earth, it can be harvested, but it will rise again. We can change its color and texture when the mood strikes us, but in time it will return to its original form, just as Nature will in time turn our precisely laid-out cities into a weed-way.”
