Traditional South Indian Wedding Hairstyles

Long waist length hair is favored in traditional South Indian cultures. You will not find many South Indian girls with short hair-dos in India. And the preference for long waist length hair is also very much evident in South Indian weddings.

If a South Indian bride-to-be has short hair, or hair that is not thick enough, hair extensions are used to enhance the nnatural hair, which is usually braided.

The method for South Indian wedding hairstyle is relatively uncomplicated.

Please take a look at the pictures as we explain how you can achieve a traditional South Indian wedding hairstyle.

The hair is pulled back from the face, and parted at the center. Usually gold jewels are used to adorn the center parting, as seen in the pictures. Jasmine flowers are attached at the back of the hair.

Hair extensions are added to the natural hair to make it look thick and long. The hair is braided and flowers are twined around the hair braid.

It is no easy task having this wedding hairdo. This wedding hairstyle is heavy to carry. And is meant only for the actual wedding ceremony. If you are heading to your wedding reception with this hair-do, you might have to just sit down and look pretty at the table. Walking up and down with this heavy hairstyle would get you all hot and tired :)
