The Indian festive season is like none other anywhere across the globe – simply because of the sheer number of special days we get to dress up for. Hairstyling is a quintessential part of dressing up and you can never leave it to the last minute. As long hair is an all-time favourite in the country, let’s help you choose a few trendy festive hairstyles for all the big fat Indian celebrations leading up to the new year 2020.
Let it Loose in Soft Waves
Natural and effortless are currently the biggest keywords in hairstyling – in fact, the whole fashion world is quite obsessed with the organic and raw theme since the beginning of 2019. This is good news for long hairstyling as the meticulously detailed set-looks take a back seat and you get to flaunt your long locks in all their original beauty. Minimalistas would love this option too – no need to fuzz about with too many products or accessories to keep your hair in delicate updos or braids. Just give them some TLC, air-dry, and wear in soft face-framing waves. To amp up the glam, visit our salon for a trendy hair colour makeover too.
Braid it into a Bun
The oldest trick in the book – braid it and tuck it away into a low bun and wrap it in flowers. But before you dismiss the tried-and-tested festive hairstyling staple – remember, this could be your saviour in case of an unfortunate bad hair day. The main concern with a braided bun is that it could look too bridal or too mature – and that’s probably why it’s often pictured with a saree. A few changes can, however, fit this long hairstyle right into your peppy festive looks. For example, lift it up a bit and use decorative hairpins instead of flowers as an accessory. Instead of the plain centre-parted look in front, play around with a couple of french braids or twists on either side to add on to the intricacy.
Plait or Pony
For those of you who want the pest of both worlds, choose a sleek ponytail with stunning hair accessories or a messy side-braid with delicate florals. One-length hair is the new star on the block when it comes to haircuts and the sleek pony is a perfect match for long straight hair. To add the festive glam to your ponytail, try the season’s favourite hair accessories like a beaded barrette or studded bobby pins. The fishtail braid is ideal for festive glam and in fact a bridesmaid’s staple too. Go for fresh flowers or floral hairpins studded on randomly along the messy plait for that charming finish.
