30 Latest Mehendi Hairstyles For Brides & Wedding Guests

Mehendi hairstyles

While curating a look for your wedding doesn’t give you much option with the hairstyle, a classic bun being the most favored choice, it’s on your mehendi day that you can actually explore options. On the other functions, you might also have a dupatta on the head, but for mehendi, things roll differently. Brides often prefer playful palettes for this fete and opt for such gorgeous mehendi hairstyles that match the cheery mood of the event, and their ensemble. 




Also, experts recommend picking a hairdo that won’t need touch-ups or lose its charm over the day. Not only do brides have wet mehandi on their hands, but the event also lasts for the full day and most of the portraits are clicked after the mehendi is all dried. It’s obvious you’d want your hair & makeup to stay put through all this time. Convey this to your hairstylist before time and pick only a professional to do your mehendi hair. If you’re DIY-ing, lots of hairspray and bobby pins are the key to keeping your hairdo intact. 

Find below 30 trending mehendi hairstyles for brides and wedding guests.
