Let’s face it, designer clothes and perfect makeup can make us look like a diva but only when our hairstyle is on-point. Whether you are getting dressed for a casual everyday affair or a classy party, a good, celebrity-inspired hairstyle can significantly amp up your style game. Our favourite Bollywood stars have their own unique ways of styling their tresses; some prefer the usual long waves whereas others stick to intense makeovers.
Here is a peek at the Top 10 Celebrity Hairstyles that we can all take major inspiration from.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s Tight Chignon Hairstyle
A ‘chignon’ is nothing but a fancy French term for a glamorous and extremely classy bun. And when it comes to classy and chic, we cannot help but turn our focus to the ‘ever-so-stylish’, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja.
Recently, she was spotted in a chic black gown with her hair styled in a tight and glossy low chignon and a maang tika adding the extra edge. This hairstyle is perfect for over-the-top cocktail parties and it is a very easy way to look pretty and polished at the same time. Take hints from Sonam and go for dramatic smokey-eye makeup and matte nude lips to ace the look.
TIP: Straighten out your hair and make sure to tame the flyways with a shiny hair gel. Pull your hair back in a ponytail at the nape of your neck, secure it with a transparent band and twist it to form a bun.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s Sleek Low Ponytail at Koffee with Karan
For a 9-to-5 effortless and chic everyday hairstyle, let us take inspiration from Priyanka’s Koffee with Karan appearance. Her no-fuss, ‘boss-lady’ hairstyle is the one to go for on your regular workdays when you need a confidence boost. This is not only easy to sport all day but also, celebrity-approved.
TIP: The trick to styling a sleek low ponytail is tying it with an elastic band which secures your hair perfectly in two rounds. Also, make sure your tresses are poker straight. Finish off with a touch of hair serum.
Janhvi Kapoor’s Carefree Messy Bun Hairstyle
Janhvi Kapoor stunned onlookers at an award function when she showed up in a Reem Acra Bridal Collection white gown with her hair styled beautifully in a messy bun. Creating the perfect messy bun can be challenging because contrary to its name, you cannot just make a mess! This hairstyle goes flawlessly well with classy, premium ensembles while it can also make a regular casual look more fun and fashionable.
TIP: Spritz damp hair with texturizing hair spray and pull your hair in a loose ponytail. Keep twisting your hair and spin it around the base of the ponytail and continue to wrap the strands. Secure the rest of the flyways with bobby pins. To make the style messier, refrain from using a comb and leave loose wavy tresses at the front.
Alia Bhatt’s Chic Cornrow Braids
From red carpet appearances to everyday attires, Alia Bhatt has never let us down. Her instagram especially is #hairgoals for every girl out there; be it wavy curls or braided locks, she nails every hairstyle with absolute charm and elegance. So, if you are a college-goer or just a fan of super cute, casual and comfortable hairstyles, take notes from Ms. Bhatt’s cornrow braids’ look.
TIP: Carefully braid three separate volumes of your hair (braid only the part of the hair that is at the top of your head). Tie the braids tightly with transparent bands. This hairstyle is chic and playful and looks amazing with loud eye makeup.
Deepika Padukone and her Trademark Hairstyle
The classic puffy hairstyle of Deepika Padukone is extremely flattering and she has made it quite famous among her fans. Be it a ponytail or a bun, her voluminous tresses look alluring and on-point when styled in a puff. With thick wavy hair piled up at the top of her head, this hairstyle goes both with haute couture gowns and traditional Indian clothes.
TIP: Gather withered strands of hair at the back of your head and loosely secure them with a snap clip. Don’t forget to use a hair serum and texturizing spray to help maintain the puff.
Deepika Padukone can pull off common hairstyles with absolute glam and we wonder how! She looks gorgeous with her hair styled in beachy waves with a parting straight at the middle. This look is very easy to create and is suitable for cocktail parties and social gatherings. Just make sure you wear a loud lipstick and smokey eye makeup.
Yami Gautam’s Short Hair Styling Inspiration
For women with short hair, there is nobody better than Yami Gautam to look up to for inspiration. Whether it is her perfectly done loose soft curls or a simple side braid, she looks super enchanting.
TIP: To get your hair styled in soft curls, make sure to use your curling iron only for 6 seconds on a particular strand and then move on to another. Spritz some hair spray and roughly tousle your hair to finish off the look. For a side braid, split your hair in a deep parting and do a regular braid while moving it towards your ear. Take small strands and include them in the braid (like a French braid). Secure it tightly near your ear and you are done.
Shilpa Shetty’s Hairstyles for both Ethnic and Western Ensembles
Fishtail Braid is the perfect option to go for if you are planning for ethnic wear and want to opt for a flattering hairstyle other than just going for a traditional bun. Sweep the braid to one side and accessorize with heavy earrings and loud makeup.
For a more work-appropriate hairstyle, go for a top-knot. Tip: You just need poker straight hair and then pull it all back into a ponytail at the crown of your head. Roll the ponytail in a sleek bun and secure with clips.
Kangana Ranaut Giving us Major Curly Hair Goals
For all curly-haired women out there, Kangana Ranaut can be the one-stop celebrity hairstyle inspiration. Unlike other B-Town stars who prefer wavy or poker straight hair, Kangana opts to flaunt her curls with a lot of sass.
TIP: To get curls like her, tousle your hair with your fingers right after shampooing. Make sure to use a comb and not a brush when your hair is damp. Do not comb your curls when they are dry as it will only make your hair frizzy. Also, it is best to air dry your hair to get naturally well-formed curls.
