From winning the title of Miss Asia Pacific in 2000 to playing Sanjay Dutt’s wife in his biopic Sanju, Dia Mirza has been stealing our hearts for almost two decades now. The girl who made a smashing debut with Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein is also a producer and activist; in other words, unstoppable. Not only this, she has been killing it on the style and beauty front too. Her elegant style sense and impeccable beauty choices always leave us in awe—probably why we end up on her Insta feed ever so often.
While Insta-stalking her, we realised she has a whole look book of stunning retro hairstyles that are pure goals for the upcoming party and wedding season. Since it’s her birthday today, we decided to pick some beauty lessons from the former beauty queen. Here are five vintage hairstyles rocked by Dia Mirza that made us stop-and-stare.
Milkmaid braid updo
Dia looked nothing less than a Greek goddess in this milkmaid braid hairstyle. It transported us back to the 1920s when centre-parted, gorgeous braids was adorned with tiny flowers. Since milkmaid braids are back in the scene this season, we have no reason to not try this dreamy hairstyle.
Dia can’t seem to get enough of dainty and delicate buns. Be it braided half buns or this classy retro bun with vintage waves (which also looks like a 50’s bob from the front, BTW). The oh-so-glamorous updo has gotta be the most drool-worthy vintage hairstyle we’ve seen in a while.
The ’70s half up half down
This hairstyle is giving us major disco feels and making us want to break into a jig right away. This centre-parted half up half down that’s poufy at the front and wavy at the back is inarguably the perfect party hairstyle. BRB, screenshotting!
Were braids ever not a trend? They were big in the 60s and half a century later, they are still a hit in the beauty world. Let Dia show you how to team a thick, side-swept braid with your Indian outfits and rock it with aplomb. Sorted for this wedding season!
Nothing says vintage like beautifully defined soft curls. Dia seized the old world charm in her hair with red-carpet-ready waves and a silk dress, and boy did she pull it off like a 50’s Hollywood star!
