You can braid it right till the end or leave it half way. Gently tug the braid apart to make it look fuller. Tie the braid with an elastic and finish it off by tying the scarf for an aesthetic look.

A. Yes, bangs never go out of style. From supermodels to celebrities, bangs have always been a favourite. Whether it is side-swept bangs, curtain bangs or blunt bangs, they always take your haircut a notch above.
Q2. What should I put on my hair before styling?
A. Before styling your hair, you need to have a clean base. Shampoo your hair thoroughly before any hairstyle. Apply heat protectant spray and follow it up with a mousse before blow drying your hair. Post blow dry you can style your hair as per your requirement.
Q3. Can you style dry hair?
A. Though dry hair can be unmanageable, you can still style them. When blow drying, do not go too close to the roots. Be gentle when styling dry hair as pulling and tucking can damage and break the hair easily. Using a detangling brush, remove the knots before starting the hairstyle. You can also apply a serum to dry hair before styling. Tresemme Pro Pure Moisture Boost Hair Serum will add shine to your locks and keep them hydrated.
