Twisted low bun
A classy low bun is a festive favourite hairstyle and goes well with every Indian outfit, be it a saree or a lehenga. Make a low ponytail and divide it in two sections. Twist both sections and wrap it in a bun around the ponytail hair tie. Secure with bobby pins and hairspray. The twisted locks will make sure the bun is secure and sits tight.
A fuller-looking side-swept braid is the best bet for women with super-long locks. Weave your hair in a side braid and stick a pin behind the ear to keep it from coming undone. Place tiny flowers all along the braid to add a pretty element to it.
How can a classic bun adorned with a gajra not be on this list? This elegant hairstyle is practically synonymous with the festive season, and a gorgeous one to rock this Navratri. Use hair gel to get a sleek look and pull your hair into a bun. Wrap a beautiful gajra around it and secure nicely.
Detailed half-up, half-down
This gorgeous braided hairstyle won’t budge all night and will keep your wispy locks away from your face (so no sweaty strands to deal with). Divide your hair in two sections and braid each very close to the hairline as you go along the back. Secure both the tightly braided sections together at the back with loads of pins and hairspray.
Can’t get enough of ponytails? Well, you know that ponytails don’t hold up when you are swaying and swirling to the beats. But don’t worry. Sport this braided ponytail and we promise your hair will stay put.
Twist and pin
Not a fan of braids and buns? If you love a simple hairdo, try this twisted half-up, half down hairstyle. Section the crown area into three parts, and twist each till the back. Secure each neatly with bobby pins. Spritz hairspray on the bobby pins to hold the hairstyle in place through the night.
