Let’s face it. It’s a cruel summer. And a lot more cruel to our hair. Product build up, a sweaty mane and damage due to the heat are some of the problems we will be facing. But help is on hand. I’ve rounded up 5 easy hairstyles that our favourite celebrities have been spotted with. They’re easy to do and can help you step out stylishly this summer. Want to know which one they are?
I personally love the fishtail braid. If you have long hair and don’t want to wear it as is, opt for this style. It’s less school-girl and more high-fashion. Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma are ardent fans.
Summer is the best time to go for the chop. If you’re worried it may be deemed as to boyish, try getting a side-swept fringe like Anne Hathaway did – it looks feminine and you can sweep it back or pin it with a pretty barrette.
Chignons are so passe. If you really want to create some drama opt for a braided updo. Braid one section of your hair and pin back. Sweep a few strands out to make it artfully messy – you don’t want to look pageant-y!
Ironing your hair during summer would cause even more damage to your locks. Instead of a super sleek ponytail opt for some texture. Add a coin sized amount of mousse on damp hair and scrunch. Back comb the crown area and fasten with a rubber band. Voila! Textured ponytail!
We crave for a hairstyle where we could just wash our hair and go. So imagine our delight when we spotted Priyanka sporting the messy curl/wavy do. Wanna try this out? Apply serum to damp hair and plait your hair and leave overnight. Open it out in the morn and instant curls.
