Your wedding planning begins with a long, winding AF to-do list that literally doesn’t end till D-day. The worst thing is that you have limited time and so much to do. While your bridal makeup and hairstyle for the wedding day is decided weeks earlier (‘cause, well, it is important), your look for pre-wedding functions takes a backseat and you’re likely to end up wrapping your hair in your regular hairstyle for the smaller ceremonies. Not fair.

Don’t panic though. We keep a track of and bookmark the best of celebrity looks for you, so you have one less thing to worry about. That’s how we noticed the most gorgeous and easiest hairstyle for brides-to-be on Rakul Preet Singh’s Instagram feed. She dropped a stunning half up-half down hairstyle with dainty braid details that’s perfect for all the winter brides out there.

Here is a complete step-by-step tutorial of Rakul’s braided half up-half down hairstyle for you to copy for your pre-wedding ceremonies.

Step 01: Wash your hair and blow-dry it to create volume and bounce.

Step 02: Brush your hair and create a centre parting. Style it in soft waves before you start with the hairdo.

Step 03: Leaving about two to three inches from the front, take a small section from one side and braid it in a regular three-strand braid close to the hairline.

Step 04: Repeat the same on the other side, leaving the same hair section from the front to frame the face. Secure the braids with clear hair ties.

Step 05: Hold both the braided sections at the back and pin it using an embellished barrette or hair pin.

 Step 06: Finish with a spritz of hairspray to hold the curls and hairdo at place and add a little shine to your mane. And you’re all set!
