Hate fussy, time-consuming hairstyles? Well, you’re going to love this one. Simply apply some serum to the lengths of your hair to add shine. Then, go ahead and accentuate your basic low ponytail with a flattering pearl-encrusted hair tie. Style the rest of the hair in soft waves, and voila! So simple yet so classy!

Every bit elegant, this hair bun is a must-try if you want to create something easy yet dramatic for Ganesh Chaturthi pooja. It’ll pair well with all your ethnic outfits like anarkalis, lehengas and sarees. Go one step ahead and match the flowers to your outfit for a fab look.

Now, this festive hairstyle will get you tons of compliments from your family, friends as well as Insta fam. The hair features double pancake-like braids done on the front section and merged with a hair bun behind. Alternatively, you can ditch the bun and keep your tresses open with the braids pinned on one side.

We’re low-key obsessed with this hairstyle because it combines two of our favourite things — a high ponytail and lovely curls. Simply tie your hair in a high ponytail and curl the rest of the hair. Wrap a section around the hair tie to conceal it and smooth some hair serum or hair gel on your crown to recreate the sleek look.

Here’s a Janhvi Kapoor-approved hairstyle all you lazy girls can try for your at-home Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. A messy version of the half up and half down hairstyle, this one is super easy to recreate. All you gotta do is twist two sections of your hair from the front and secure it with bobby pins on the back of the head. You can leave it as is or curl the rest of your hair like Janhvi to fake fuller-looking hair.
