Cornrows, mohawks and crew cuts are passé. As Bollywood A-listers step up the hair game, we suggest a few hairstyles that you can sport this season. Get hair raisingly inspired now!
Round up the curls
Curls can be a boon or a bane depending on how you style them. For longer hair, invest in a lot of patience, conditioner and styling gel. To define the curls, comb your hair with a wide tooth comb while it’s still wet. Take a dollop of styling gel and then apply, taking care to not open the curls. If long hair is not your cup of tea, opt for the low maintenance and stylish closely cropped curls. This hairstyle does not require you to even comb your hair, but for special occasions, you can smooth over some mousse for a glossy look.
Edge in the undercut
One of the most popular hair trends this year, the undercut, grabs a lot of attention. For a decent short undercut, ask your barber to closely trim the sides and leave the hair on top longer. This style looks best when the top hair has a lot of volume, so go easy on the hair spray. If a bolder edgier look is up your alley, then rock the side undercut by closely trimming or shaving off hair on one side.
A no-fuss comb over
Want to transform your messy boy-next-door look into a sleek but no-fuss hairstyle? Just rock a stylish comb over. Apply styling cream through your hair and comb well. Now, divide your hair with a side part and comb each side. For a Mafioso look, you can also comb your hair backwards and then apply a styling cream. For a wet look apply gel before parting the hair and then comb. To get a natural matte finish and resist flyaways, spray hairspray on a brush and gently comb through the top layers of the hair.
Quirk up the quiff
Channel your inner Elvis with this retro hairstyle. This style takes considerable time, so the bed head boys better stay away. Apply gel or mousse to towel dried hair and comb the hair forward. Then, blow dry your hair while raking them to one side and then backwards, using your fingers to lift them up and roll the tips. After getting the desired shape, apply hairspray to hold the style in place.
Faking dreadlocks may require a lot of time, patience and at least shoulder length hair! Firstly, mark a centre parting. Tie up one section and apply strong hold styling gel generously on the loose hair. Now take a strand of hair (depending on how thick you want it) and twist it till they stick together. Let it dry for a few seconds and then back comb it a bit. Apply hairspray and repeat the steps till your head is filled with fake dreads. To remove them, while washing, just allow a conditioner to saturate your hair first, then use a wide tooth comb to gently go through the tangles. Shampoo, condition again and then rinse off.
