Weddings are the most joyful and exciting celebrations. Be it India, or abroad, weddings are loved and cherished by everyone. But, when we talk about weddings, the first thing that comes to our minds, especially to the minds of all the girls is, getting ready.

Whether it is your friend’s wedding or some relative, you want to look as good and smart as possible. And, when we talk about looking good there are a few points that matter the most. The first one is the dress selection. You pick out one of the best dresses from your collection to slay at the wedding. Then, you decide and take out all the accessories needed and matching your selected outfit. Then comes the makeup part which is an easy- peasy job until it comes to the hairstyle.

Making up a hairstyle for a wedding is a tough and tricky job and especially when you have to do it all by yourself it becomes far more time-consuming. However, not all of us are fans of going to a salon or a hairdresser for every wedding.  Moreover, we are always looking for some new hairstyles for the upcoming wedding.

So, here we are to your help with a list of the best easy, quick, and DIY hairstyles for any occasion, especially weddings that you can do easily.

1. The evergreen and the simplest!

Hairstyles For Weddings

Okay! So, first things first! The most common at-home hairstyles that are easy to do are no hairstyles. Yes, you read it right! When we say no hairstyles, we mean to keep them open.

Every person has a unique hair texture or shape. These natural shapes of your hair suit you the best. So, in case, you are not in the mood to do any hairstyle or you are feeling that you don’t have the time to do one, just leave your hair free and happy.

Just make sure, that you have taken a head wash either the same day or your hair is not too greasy as greasy hair doesn’t match with weddings.

2. Straight and classy!

So, we are starting slow and easy! Almost all of us own a hair straightener. If you don’t, you should surely invest in a hair straightener as it is a very useful hair styling tool. 

Straight hairs are a go-to hairstyle for all those who have wavy or curly hair textures. The reason is simple. The main motive we have in our minds when planning to do a hairstyle for a wedding is to look different from ordinary days.

Hence, for those who have natural curls or waves, straightened hairs are the best option. They are very easy to do and time-saving. Just make sure that if you are a beginner at hair straightening, be a little careful. Keep the temperature in control and not too high. Also, always opt for hairstyling pieces of equipment that have proper coatings to save your hair from any kind of extra damage.

3. Go girl with the curl!

Just like straightened hairs are the best way to change the look for those who have curly hair, curled hairs are best for those who have naturally straight hairs. If you don’t have much time or you don’t want to do some extra clipping in of your hairs, just curl them and leave them open.

There are two ways of doing curls. You can either go for curls only at the ends of your hair or, you can also curl your overall hairs. It depends on what you like and what suits you the best.

For curling as well, you will need equipment. In that too, there are two options. You can either invest in a curler which is the better option as a curling rod is very easy to use and is very useful. You can also use a straightener as a substitute for a curling rod, in case you already own a straightener.

How to curl hairs through a straightener?

  • First of all, comb your hair properly.
  • Then make a few sections or just one section will also do. Take out one layer of your hair. The layer should be as thick or thin as you desire your curls to be.
  • Now roll this layer on the straightener just like a curler from the point you want to start curling. Don’t close the straightener before rolling over the hairs.
  • Now close the straightener and pull it downwards up to the ends of your hairs.
