While her beauty game is always on-fleek, Alia Bhatt is never the one to go all out and experiment, be it makeup or hair. Her minimal approach to makeup is a blessing for all the makeup minimalists out there, no doubt. And when it comes to hair, she is often seen sporting worn-down polished waves. However, there is one hairstyle that seems to be her favourite. Be it red carpets or promotional events, the star is always “raazi” to wear her hair in a bumped-up ponytail.

If you’ve been keeping a close watch on Alia Bhatt’s beauty game, you may have noticed by now that the actress is always game for a dramatic version of a ponytail. This hairstyle helps her achieve a middle-ground between sleek and pouf. So, if you’re looking to ditch your basic ponytail for something uber stylish yet understated, then this bumped-up ponytail will do the trick!

Love me some frizz

This sleek-to-frizzy version of a ponytail is edgy and sassy at the same time. Her centre-parted hairstyle starts on a sleek note and goes bigger at the tail, almost making it look like a frizz-ball. Trust Alia to pull off this hairdo with such aplomb!

Wave(ing) at you!

Here’s another version of a low ponytail that Alia sports. Yet again, her hairstyle starts clean and sleek, and this time, ends up in waves. An easier way of recreating this look is to first gather all your hair into a low ponytail, add some hair mousse on the top of your head, and with the help of a curling iron, add soft waves at the tail.

Big hair, don’t care

Alia Bhatt shows you how to flaunt big hair in a perfectly styled hairdo. If you have naturally voluminous hair and don’t want to wear it down, then this is a great way to style it. Let your hair fall naturally at the tail and apply some TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Styling gel on the top of your head to smoothen flyaways and to keep your hair smelling fresh all day long.

Alia shows you how to add more oomph to your basic ponytail. A bumped-up side-swept ponytail is the perfect hairstyle for anyone with thin hair. This hairdo not just adds volume to your hair, but also stands out from the regular styles.
