9 bollywood-inspired hairstyles every bride-to-be will love
It can’t be that difficult to plan a Bollywood themed wedding. Just get your girlfriends to prepare at least 10 dance numbers, a dash of one drunk uncle and voila! Desi cinema has given us some of the prettiest bridal looks. From period films to more contemporary brides, there is something for every B’wood fan out there. Here are our top nine movie-inspired bridal hairstyles every bride-to-be will love….

01. Anushka Sharma in Sultan

09. Priyanka Chopra Jonas in Gunday

Anushka Sharma popularised two things with her own wedding - The Din Shagna song for bridal entries and the baby pink bridal lehenga. Her hair look, complete with a deep side part and passa, from Sultan is the perfect example of a tastefully done OTT style.


02. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Jodha Akbar

09. Priyanka Chopra Jonas in Gunday

Rajput bridal looks pride themselves for being minimal (makeup-wise). Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s many loose braided hairstyles from Jodha Akbar is just what you need for an accessory-driven hair look.


03. Deepika Padukone in Bajirao Mastani

09. Priyanka Chopra Jonas in Gunday

When it comes to bridal fashion, not many can hold a candle to Deepika Padukone’s portrayal of period characters. Her glam goddess waves from Bajirao Mastani are the right mix of understated and glam.


04. Kareena Kapoor Khan in Veere Di Wedding

09. Priyanka Chopra Jonas in Gunday

Floral hairstyles are already a major trend in the summer bridal scene. It could be attributed to Kareena Kapoor Khan’s centre-parted, braided and floral hairstyle from Veere Di Wedding. Paired with a fringed blouse and minimal accessories, this bridal look is perfect for day weddings.


05. Yami Gautam in Ginni Weds Sunny

09. Priyanka Chopra Jonas in Gunday

Leave it to Yami Gautam to accessorise her bridal look with a megawatt smile! Her unconventional green bridal look from Ginni Weds Sunny was styled with a sleek bun and roses. Genius!


06. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja in Thank You

09. Priyanka Chopra Jonas in Gunday

For many desi girls, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja is the OG fashion girl. Her stint in Aisha (which also has great bridal looks BTW) cemented her status as a fashion icon. As for the bridal look we wish to steal from her, we are going with this look from a 2011 release Thank You. A thick, curled face-framing tendril takes the look several notches higher.


07. Alia Bhatt in Kalank

09. Priyanka Chopra Jonas in Gunday

A statement red bridal look works the best when paired with gorgeous kundan jewellery that covers even your hairstyle. Alia’s bridal look from Kalank was created with a three-way mathapatti and layered bun tassels. If you’re wearing a see-through ghunghat, this can be a pretty hairstyle to wear underneath it.


08. Kangana Ranaut in Manikarnika

09. Priyanka Chopra Jonas in Gunday

Voluminous waves in the back and S waves form the golden era of Bollywood at the front, Kangana Ranaut Manikarnika bridal look paid homage to her cinematic inspirations!


09. Priyanka Chopra Jonas in Gunday

09. Priyanka Chopra Jonas in Gunday

We saved the most fun Bollywood bridal look for the last! Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ Bengali bride from Gunday is absolutely adorable and totally cool. We can see your sangeet video going viral in family Whatsapp groups with this hairdo!
