i think it’s totally possible. here’s a couple pics i found:


it’ll work better with your hair pulled back in the front with a little bump in it, i think, to better told the weight of the dupatta. Sort of like Cola’s hairstyle. And use lots and lots of bobby pins! 🙂

Hi Clovertail,

I too plan on wearing my hair down but I feel that usually dupattas with lots of embroidery are too heavy to have in your hair if you have any elaborate hairstyle going on. For myself, I’d like to have a bump in my hair with lots of waves/curls and I know a heavy dupatta on top would kill the hairdo. So my solution is to wear the heavy dupatta over my shoulders for most of the night and for the nikkah, wear a chiffon-type very lightly embroidered dupatta over my hair, kinda like a mantilla veil.

Maybe you can try going for a half up-half down hairstyle and add some volume to the up part of the hairstyle to hold the weight of the dupatta.  You could also add a comb or some bobby pin loops as well to secure the dupatta on your head.
