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.
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.
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.
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.
