Not just your average bangs, fringes are special forms of bangs that are best applied on the textured hair. This is made the best when you have wet or damp hair and then air-dried.


One of the more common styles, this is the way to go if you’re not into styling your hair and you want to try something safe yet stylish for your wedding. There are minor changes depending on your hair but that’s absolutely nothing that can’t be sorted.

Wild And Free

This is the way to go if you’re vocal about who you are and you like to take life with a pinch of salt. It emphasizes on your natural texture and hair length and is a very stylish choice if you’re planning to show the visitors exactly how confident you are about how you look and who you are. Best tried with short to medium-length hair, try it not merely to impress the visitors, but also your man.

Sleek And Centred

This is for the more reserved, elegant woman who likes to present herself in a subtle, subdued manner. Try this if you like to look formal and elegant in your wedding.

Sleek And Centred

The best way to go about this would be to smoothen out your hair with an iron, part it from the centre and tie it behind with a sleek, reserved low ponytail. Try this if you’re somewhat acquainted with hairstyles and know exactly how you want to look in your special day.
