You can always adorn your braid with floral accessories and also leave some tresses loose at the front if you wish to.
3. Perfect Pony
Stunning as always, Blake opted for the perfect ponytail look at the Cannes Festival, leaving everyone mesmerised. Try pairing this perfect hairdo with your lehenga or your sari to look elegant and classy. Go for minimal makeup to complement your stylish look.
4. Half Tied Hair
During the Michael Kors Fall Winter 2017 fashion show, Lively was seen sporting a floral dress along with a sleek white belt that had her looking absolutely gorgeous. But more than that, what completed the look was her half-tied hair. This hairstyle has been in and out of vogue for decades now. It’s time you bring it back onto your list of hairdos though.

Looking just like a goddess, Blake Lively left everyone gasping in awe as she made her entrance at the Met Gala 2018. She looked absolutely ethereal dressed in a wine coloured gown and all that fine jewellery, but what really caught the eyes of the public was the captivatingly elegant bun that she’d adorned with accessories. You can try out this hairstyle, pairing it with a floral band or Gajra, for your wedding reception.
7. Sleek and Straight
Looking breathtakingly beautiful, Lively chose to go for a sleek and straight hairdo for the People’s Choice Awards 2017 event.
