The one rule wedding guests are never supposed to break does not have to do with how many refillings of desserts they are allowed… it is actually to never, EVER, show up looking better than the bride! From your ensemble to hair and makeup looks, the idea is to always stay a bit restrained while glamming up, especially when you know your bestie might go the minimal route. But, you do not want to look like you didn’t put in efforts either, especially when it comes to hair. We think the best way to approach hairstyles as a wedding guest is to play around with fun accessories, textures and clip-ins. Scroll down for some fabulous idea…

Got a nice curling wand and hairspray handy at home? The classic half up half down hairstyle with loose curls at the ends is a good way to do your hair for a daytime soiree. Let some face-framing tendrils fall on the side of your face for added effect.
02. Floral braids

Baby’s breath flowers are huge this bridal season. We think it has to do with the charm they add to any hairdo, their simplicity making them easy to work with. Put your hair into your favourite braid and add some baby breath to your braids and you’re good to go!
03. Center parted voluminous waves

If you’re planning to wear your hair down. Part it down the middle rather wearing a side part. It is more modern and chic and will let you wear your choice of maang tikka in peace. Add voluminous waves to your mane for a glam look!

Like we mentioned before, instead of stressing about elaborate hairstyle, play around with extensions and clip-ins to bring in the oomph to your ensemble. Hair extensions, which you can style in any number of ways — like this high pony — are a good investment to make, especially if you have several weddings to attend!
05. A sleek ponytail moment

If all else fails, you can always make your mane submit to a poker-straight texture and put your hair into a sleek low ponytail. They are so fashionable and look stunning with a pair of jhumkis and your favourite sunnies!
