Ponytails

7 Hairstyles of Bollywood Actresses for a Stylish Look - deepika

Ponytails are a classic hairstyle which tends to be underrated and overlooked. Many undermine the effortless aesthetic of this hairdo.

Yet one Bollywood celebrity who is often seen sporting this look is Deepika Padukone.

Deepika’s signature pouffe ponytail is anything but basic yet it is a simple hairstyle to recreate.

The voluminous pouffe seamlessly falls into the ponytail. It is a perfect style which looks amazing with every look whether casual or formal.

Deepika Padukone has championed this style so much that numerous beauty gurus on YouTube have created tutorials guiding you on how to achieve this look.

Follow these steps to attain this perfect voluminous ponytail at home:

  1. Section your hair from ear-to-ear to separate the crown part from the rest of your hair.
  2. Gently backcomb the crown of your hair and spray volumising hairspray.
  3. Smoothen the backcombed crown so it creates a perfect round bump. If you have any baby-hairs peaking up be sure to hairspray them down.
  4. Tie the crown section to the rest of your hair into a ponytail. For extra security pin the pouffe from behind.
  5. To cover the bobby pins, take a strand of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around.
  6. If you want to achieve that messy look, pull out some strand of hair to frame your face.

It is important to note, that this hairdo works best with unwashed hair (ideally second/third-day hair).

Alternatively, if you do choose to try this look on freshly washed hair, remember to flip your hair upside down and blow-dry it.

Be sure to tease the hair a little more than you usually would for that extra hold.

Glamorous Waves

7 Hairstyles of Bollywood Actresses for a Stylish Look - aishwarya

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is one of Bollywood’s most beautiful actresses. Her poise, elegance and etiquette are unprecedented.

In particular, we have taken inspiration from her 2017 Cannes Film Festival look. The actress wore a striking ruffled tube ensemble by Ralph & Russo.

To match the extravagant gown, Aishwarya had her luscious hair styled in glamorous waves.

Soft glamorous waves are the red-carpet’s favourite hairstyle to don. The sophistication and class are unmatched.

To recreate Aishwarya’s red carpet glam, read ahead:

  1. Prep the hair with curl hold spray. Distribute the product evenly throughout.
  2. Section your hair from ear-to-ear and clip one half back.
  3. Using a curling tong, wrap a small section of hair around the barrel and hold for 10 seconds.
  4. Repeat this technique for the rest of the hair.
  5. For the crown of the hair, curl the hair 5 inches from the root.
  6. After having curled your entire hair, comb the curls through with a large paddle brush. This will turn the tight curls into glamorous waves.
  7. Finish off the hair with a generous amount of hairspray.

80s Disco Hair

7 Hairstyles of Bollywood Actresses for a Stylish Look - katrina

We still look back to Katrina Kaif’s December 2018 Vogue cover girl hairstyle.

Katrina looks immaculate as she posed for the camera with her wild curly hair and sultry pose.

If you are bored of the classic straight hair look, then this hairdo donned by Katrina Kaif will certainly show off your wild side.

Hairstylist Yianni Tsapatori was the man behind Katrina’s curls.

According to an interaction with Vogue India, Yianni Tsapatori stated how it is difficult to make curls last in long hair. He said:

“There’s always a challenge to create curls that last on long hair, especially these kinds of curls.”

He continued to mention the test with Katrina’s hair saying:

“The challenge with Katrina’s hairstyle for the December cover story was to create curls that look natural with a lot of movement.”

If you want to achieve these stunning tight curls to your next party or event follow these steps:

  1. Comb mousse through wet hair with a wide-toothed comb.
  2. To add hydration and avoid frizz, apply a hydrating serum of your choice.
  3. Throw your hair over your head and blow-dry your hair while scrunching it to the roots.
  4. Once again apply your serum to moisturise your hair.
  5. Section your hair and using a ¼ inch curling tong tightly wrap a strand of hair around the barrel.
  6. Remember to spray your curls with volumising hairspray.
  7. For added volume at the crown spray your roots with dry shampoo.
  8. Once you have curled all your hair gently open the curls with your fingers.

Braids

7 Hairstyles of Bollywood Actresses for a Stylish Look - alia beat

Bollywood beauty Alia Bhatt has tried and tested all hairstyles from buns to curls. There is no denying her hair game is strong.

We chose Alia’s twisted braid style which she wore for an event along with a stunning floral gown.

The actress was styled by Ami Patel and she looked a vision. The combination of her ensemble and braided hairstyle was perfection.

Follow these simple steps to recreate Alia Bhatt’s hairdo:

  1. Using a small barrel curler (preferably 1.25 inch) curl your hair from you ear level to the ends.
  2. With a large comb or your fingers comb through the curls. This will allow your tight curls to loosen into loose waves.
  3. Take two large sections from each side of your centre part.
  4. Braid each large section and combine the two braids at the back of your head. Secure the braids with pins.
  5. To make your braids appear thicker gently tug on the hair strands.
  6. Like Alia has done you can adorn your braid with pearl pins throughout.

Despite many things not going to plan as we all know life is not perfect, but your hair can be.

Do not skip on making that effort for casual days or formal occasions. We hope our list of hairstyles has inspired you to sit in front of the mirror and have you playing with your hair.
