We South Asians have always prioritized our hair care from the very beginning. The times when our grandmother used to pamper our hair by applying oil and massaging every Sunday with tales of how this practice is essential to keep them long, thick, and healthy. And we are certain, that almost all of you believe the same that good hair makes a good hairdo, especially when it comes to hairstyling for any occasion, wedding ceremonies, or even for regular date nights. The chaos in choosing hairdos is real and takes a lot of our time in deciding which hairstyle will look apt with Indin attires. As we have seen brides mostly choose a bun hairstyle to go with their lehenga, and a braid or open hair with a sharara/lehenga for her mehndi, but what if you decide to wear a Kurti to remain fuss-free for your haldi, mehndi ceremony, or a small wedding pooja at home? Which hairstyle would compliment it?

All these issues are never-ending, especially in the ever-evolving fashion world. However, for this comfy attire, we prefer you go for a comfy hairstyle.
