No-Fuss Ways to Figuring Out Short Hair Styles For Your Indian Wedding
Bride: Should I go for an updo, a chignon or waterfall braids? Oh wait! I just chopped off my hair for summer and I don’t think it’s going to grow that long for my winter wedding!” Damn, what do I do?!
Mom of bride (in a matter of fact tone): Beta, now that you are engaged, can you please start growing your hair? This crew cut that you people think is so cool, may not be the best match to your bridal lehenga.”
Bride (annoyed and irritable): But mom, he likes the crew cut. And I like the crew cut. Can’t we reverse the solution and I just wear an outfit that suits my current hairdo?
Mom of bride (exasperated - Hands to head) Beta, do you want to arrive at your wedding mandap in torn denims or camouflage harems?
Bride (bored): Why not?
Mom of bride: Has a nervous breakdown
