5. Surabaya, Indonesia

"This is called Paes, a traditional Javanese bridal makeup and hairdo. There are several types of Paes depending on the area of origin, most notably from the cities Jogja and Solo. The hairdo mostly consists of an intricate bun, squiggles on the forehead made of a wax substance, gold jewelry (usually of uneven numbers), and strands of jasmine flowers. Those squiggles have their own elaborate measurements and bridal makeup artists usually have to complete several sets of training before they can master the Paes look." —rockregnum
