Loves buns, but also want to flaunt your long and thick hair? Take inspiration from Shraddha Kapoor’s half-up gajra bun and do both. A traditional hairstyle with a modern twist, this hairdo can be easily created with minimal products. Simply create a small bun using the top half section of your hair, secure with bobby pins and wrap a gajra around it — easy-peasy!
02. Low ponytail with tendrils

The festive season is that time of the year when you have the chance to wear statement jewellery pieces. But what’s the point of wearing one if your hair is gonna hide it completely? Take inspiration from Kriti Sanon and tie a low, loose ponytail and leave out a few face-framing tendrils to complete the look.
03. Half up half down

Tamannaah Bhatia gives the classic half up half down hairstyle a festive twist by adding a few hair accessories. If you don’t have the time or styling products on hand for an elaborate hairstyle, this might just be the best hairstyle for you to sport this Diwali. Wear a gorgeous maang tikka and add some flowers at the back.
