From taking home all the awards for her role in “Raazi”, to making jaw-dropping beauty statements at award functions, there is no stopping the super talented Alia Bhatt. Even with her minimal makeup game and simple hairdos, she is almost always making heads turn.

For someone who loves keeping her beauty game toned down; it was a refreshing change to see Alia sport a chic hairdo at a recent red-carpet event. She wore a half-crown braid with her stunning floral gown, giving us all the right kind of summer vibes. You’ll be happy to know that acing a similar hairstyle is easy-peasy and here’s how you can achieve it...

Getting Alia Bhatt’s half crown braid

Step 1:

To begin with, take 1-2 inch section of your hair on the right side, just above your ear. Split the section into 3 and make a normal braid.

Step 2:

While making the braid, remember to angle it back around your hair and secure the end of the braid with an elastic band.

Step 3:

Repeat the same on the left side; take a section of your hair from above your ear and braid it. Secure with an elastic band.

Step 4:

Next, bring one braid across the back of your head and pin in place with bobby pins.

Step 5:

Cross the braid over the first and tuck the end in behind the first braid. Secure it with bobby pins.

Step 6:

The secret to adding volume to your braids is teasing out sections so it looks messy. Doing so will give an impression of thicker mane and substantial volume.

Step 7:

Now, take a curling iron to create soft waves all over. Add a few pearl accents to up the beauty quotient of your hair-do and finish it off with the Toni&Guy Finishing Shine Spray that’ll help you achieve smooth, shiny and glamorous locks.
