Summers are here and, of course, so are bad hair days! While most of the time we struggle to keep our hair oil-and-frizz-free, the other times we get stressed out thinking about the kind of hairstyle that will keep our hair luscious and beautiful.
The only way to survive this season is by learning all about braids (thanks Alia Bhatt for introducing us to those cute braided hairdos). Here are a few of the simplest yet elegant styles inspired by the actress:
1) Pigtail Braids
If you don’t want your hair to bother you in the scorching heat and you find boring buns tacky, then opt for these super cute pigtails and beat the heat in style and oodles of cuteness.
2) Heart-Shaped Braids
While it might look a little intricate, but trust us, it is the simplest and the coolest of them all. With hundreds of tutorials available on the internet, all you need is a little practice and deep breaths.
This is just your regular ponytail with a braided twist. All you need to do is to take two ends from the bottom of your hair and braid them normally. Now take both the braids and secure them with bobby pins in a circular motion. Yes, it’s that simple!
4) Criss-Cross Side Twist
If you think that wearing Indian attires leave you with limited or no hairstyle options, then you are wrong! You can always go for experimental hairdos or this simple criss-cross twist because straight hair is so yesterday.
5) Twisted Braid Headband
What’s the need of buying headbands when you can make one with your own hair! No, you don’t need to chop them off. Make a twisted braid on each side with the hair behind your ear and just tuck them on the opposite side with the help of bobby pins for an elegant royal look.
6) Tuck It All In
If going for a half-tied hairdo or leaving it open gives you a nightmare in summers, then opt for this simple and classy no-mess braid. Just select the type of parting you want and braid it all in.
7) Twisted Loose French Braid
For a more casual look, go for the half-tied or loose french braid. It is easy to make and most of us have been swearing by it since childhood. Right? Best part — it goes well with Indian as well as western attires.
With these hairdos, it’s time to say goodbye to bad hair days!
