  • The significant points need to be unconventional and different creating a unique wedding hairstyle.

The average height of Indian women demands a hairstyle that would compensate the height difference between the bride and the groom. Most Indian wedding hairstyles are further beautified with hair jewelry.

A range of old-world braided updos those are reminiscentof the Victorian era, Indian royalty and Greek goddesses are doing the rounds of catwalks. While some buns are combinations of the fishtail and halo braids, others use twists and knots along with plaits to create a wow chignon. There’s no limit to the combinations, so get creative.   


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 DOUBLE MINI BUNS-

Tie up the remaining section into a low ponytail, or let your hair down for a half -up half-down style.


  • A less permanent Mohawk, which doesn’t require you to shave the Sides of your head, the faux hawk in women’s hairstyling is actually A fun way to simultaneously look stylish, bring dimension to your Features and add a couple of inches to your stature. While forming A bun or loose pony, use a volumising spray at the crown and pull the top section into a high half-roll. Secure it at the back of your Head with bobby pins in such a way that they are concealed from View.


  • While braids were in the spotlight last year, this year is set to be tied to the humble ponytail. Don’t resort to a simple pony, though; it’s time to go elaborate with ponytail. Do a triple pony by dividing your hair into three sections, rolling them individually and tying them up into one big, loose ponytail. Twist all your hair into a very floppy and messy pony on one side at the nape of your neck.


  • While some international make-up artists are experimenting with gold leaf accents, others are adding a golden tint to hair colour. this touch of gold will lend a soft sheen, doing away with the need for glittery accessories. Ask your colourist to keep the tone subtle by blending it with copper or chocolate.

 Early Career & Breakthrough
Initially, Kapoor was scheduled to make her debut with Rakesh Roshan’s, ‘Kaho Na Pyaar Hai’, opposite Hritik Roshan. However, she opted out after sometime and made her debut in J. P Dutta’s ‘Refugee’, opposite Abhishek Bacchan, released in 2000. Her performance in the film was highly acclaimed and she went on to win the Fimfare Best Female Debut Award. Following this, Kareena did ‘Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai’ opposite Tusshar Kapoor in 2001, which received immense success at the box - office.                                                                 Her next films ‘Yaadein’ and ‘Ajnabee’ didn’t do well at the box office. Later that year, she appeared in Santosh Sivan’s ‘Asoka’, a period epic, which received moderate success. Her performance received mixed reactions from critics, giving her a nomination for Best Actress at the Filmfare Awards.

Dutta’s war epic LOC Kargil in 2003. All these films turned out to be commercially unsuccessful in India. With this, the acting potential of the actress was being questioned, leading to negatives reviews.     Comeback
The year 2004 arrived with new hopes for Kareena. The first film this year was Sudhir Mishra’s ‘Chameli’, opposite Rahul Bose. The film bagged positive reviews and Kapoor’s performance won her the Filmfare Special Performance Award.  After this, she was seen in Govind Nihalani's critically acclaimed ‘Dev’. For this, she earned a Filmfare Critics Award for Best Performance, as well as nominations for Best Actress at various award ceremonies.

                            The next film on the block was ‘Fida’, in which Kareena was seen in a negative role for the first time. Though the film didn’t do well at the box office, the actress was acclaimed for her performance. The subsequent films that year were Abbas-Mustan's moderately successful thriller, ‘Aitraaz’ and Priyadarshan's comedy Hulchul, which was a huge hit.

This was followed by Vijay Krishna Acharya's action-thriller ‘Tashan’. Though this film marked her comeback to the Yash Raj banner, it failed to create any magic at the box - office.
