THE most high-profile
celebrity wedding this year has been that of Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover. Not surprisingly, Bollywood bombshell Bipasha revealed some
eye-catchinglooks during the wedding celebrations that are already proving to be influential. My favourite was her style during the mehendi night where she has a hair garland made of real flowers, soft waves and high- lights, which gave a fresh summary look.
This particular look works well for functions like the mehendi, but can also be effective at the civil ceremony if worn with a tiara and even at the reception if adapted with a different hair brooch.
With that in mind, I created one look that can be quickly transformed into a second one.
For the first look, I
blow-driedthe hair, but not too straight and then used a curling iron to add some soft waves. Then I blended subtly coloured hair extensions into the curls to create highlights.
I created volume with a beehive effect on the crown area and then draped curls over the shoulders. I created more curls where the fringe area is and then lifted them by backcombing and pinning into place to frame the face. This gave hair extra texture.
Finally, I added some fresh flowers. You can add as many or few as you want, but usually less is more. The flowers can be separately placed or shaped into a crown.
I was able to change this look by pushing the hair draped over the shoulders back to create a loose fishtail and placing the flowers differently.
If you have two functions on the same day, this is a great way to create different looks for maximum impact and very little effort.
