Wedding Hairstyle for Mehndi / Haldi Ceremony

 

Pre-wedding ceremonies are those events where everybody gets to have fun including the bride and the groom.

While trending mehndi outfits are something most brides are in touch with, here are some latest bridal hairstyles you can get done on your mehndi or haldi ceremony.
