Think of hairstyles, and what comes to mind is the Indian fashion scenario’s tryst with floral adornments with distinct hairdos. Glancing through Indian weddings, the North Indian bride’s attire isn’t complete without the gajra tucked into her bun. Deepika Padukone’s long tresses braided the traditional South Indian way with jasmines in Chennai Express, speaks amply of the Indian fascination with flowers as a hair accessory. From daisies serenading down the braid, to a plush lily tucked in knotted hair, in a contemporary get-up, accessorizing with flowers has come a long way.

Reminiscent of Bollywood beauties like Sharmila Tagore, the 60’s and 70’s made popular retro hairstyles like the bun and braid decked with flowers. With the turn of the 80’s, Bollywood muses flaunted the headband, tucked with flowers. The 90’s gave way to the cropped hair and the shoulder-lengthed wavy hair look adorned with red roses and carnations made popular by actresses like Tabu, and Madhuri Dixit.
