Let me guess -- you spend most of the time these days in front of the screen, either working, watching Netflix or video calling your friends. Lockdown isn’t something we were prepared for and now that we have so much free time on hand, we don’t know what to do with it.

If you are bored of watching reruns of your favourite movie/TV shows, you can use this time to level up your hairstyle game. Because sooner or later we are all going to step out and you’d want to look your best, amirite?

Here are five easy hairstyles that you can try at home and show off once the lockdown is over.

 

Looped ponytail

Ayesha Devitre is Bollywood’s favourite hairstylist; scroll through her Instagram page and you’ll know why. She creates the most stylish and never-seen-before hairstyles on her muse Ananya Panday. Who knew the use of bangles in this looped ponytail could look so good? Create a half-up ponytail and use bangles as loops to pull the ponytail through. Tie another ponytail below to keep the hairstyle in place.

Topsy tail braids are fun to create and look oh-so-pretty! Simply grab two sections of hair from each side of your head and secure at the back to form a loose ponytail, create a small gap and flip the ponytail through this gap. Gather two more sections and repeat the same process again. Easy-peasy, right?

Because this crown braid hairstyle is perfect for short hair and you can start practising it right away! Simply pick three sections from the crown area and starting braiding a classic braid.

 

Sky-high ponytail

That sleek, high, Ariana Grande style ponytail may look simple but is quite a task on days when you are in a rush to be somewhere. Now that you have ample of time due to the ongoing lockdown, use it to straighten hair, apply lots of hair gel and gather your hair up into a high ponytail and secure with at least two hair ties to keep it in place.
