The festive season has officially begun and we’re pretty sure you’ve saved a gazillion different makeup ideas on Instagram to pair with your festive attire. But what about your long, luscious locks?

Long hair can be difficult to manage, especially if it's thick — and buns seem the most ideal hairdo. But does it have to be boring? We don’t think so! Spruce it up by adding a modern yet festive hair accessory like white or red roses. Create a sleek centre-parted bun, use a smoothing cream first if your hair is frizzy. We recommend applying a dime-sized amount of the TIGI Bed Head After Party Smoothing Cream onto damp hair before tying a bun. Then tuck in 3-5 roses on one side of the bun.

Planning to wear a statement necklace like Jahnvi Kapoor? Don’t let your long hair hide it. Tie a loose and messy three strand braid, instead. It does not require a lot of styling products or tools, is easy to create and goes with pretty much every outfit.

If you have long, thick hair that’s difficult to manage, take a look at this stunning braided bun hairstyle. Start by applying a frizz control serum like the TIGI Bed Head Control Freak Frizz Control And Straightener Serum to tame your hair. Then, create a three-strand classic braid, twist around the base to form a bun, secure with bobby pins.


04. Braided half up half down

If braids and buns are not your thing, let your hair loose and allow it to frame your pretty face. Instead of a regular half up half down hairstyle, braid your hair on the crown area on both sides and secure at the back. You can create some loose waves using a curling iron to make it look non-boring. However, make sure to use the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray before you begin heat styling.

Festive season and flowers go hand-in-hand. If you love the smell of mogra and the way it can spruce up any boring look, we suggest you go for this simple hairdo. Tie a sleek bun and place a gajra around it, secure with bobby pins. This hairdo won’t budge or come loose.
