Prev1 of 5

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 Indian hairstyles that are appropriate for evening gowns and dresses and that will suit all types of celebrations and gala events.

Here are the trendiest hairstyles for evening gowns
