40 Hairstyles for evening gowns

I’ve just bought a new evening gown and I am wondering what hairstyle will go with it. Do I go with a neat and tidy hairstyle that is appropriate for an Indian function  or do I decide to go for a Greek goddess open hairstyle showing everyone what I have got.  I guess it really depends on the event and context. I may not want to look like a sexy lioness with a long hair don’t care look if all my aunties are going to be around at that wedding reception. However if I am heading out to party well then girls that sure is a different story. (and you must leave this post immediately to check out our party hairstyles for long hair). Anyway enough blabbering! Let’s get to the point. Here’s a long list of hairstyles for evening gowns and dresses that will suit all types of celebrations and gala events.

Here are the trendiest hairstyles for evening gowns

#3: Athiya Shetty hairstyle with Strapless Evening Gown
