The festive season is upon us and as always, there is also a sense of excitement in the air. After what feels like ages, you’ll finally be waking up in the morning to do more than log on to WFH. You will also be helping out your fam with festive prep, maybe alter some lehenga blouses or quietly whisper to your makeup vanity that its time to shine is finally here. For us, it is the excuse to deck out and do more to our hair than just brush it. And even though festive season 2020 is looking to be low-key and intimate, these gorgeous braided hairstyles will at least present a different story…

A dutch braided section on top that merges into a sleek fishtail braid, this hairdo is adorable. A few face-framing tendrils add so much character to the whole look. We love!

Since you will have considerably more time to get ready for an at-home festive evening (no long commutes!), indulging in this elaborate hairstyle won’t be a problem. Waterfall braids and glossy waves are such a perfect combination for girls with naturally long and thick hair.

We’ve usually seen crown braids that are kept very clean and tight, but this voluminous crown braid, when paired with chic waves, looks stunning. We believe it is the centre parting that made all the difference!

A hairstyle that our desi moms have mastered, this loose side braid is just so charming. Make sure to prep your hair with some dry shampoo like the Dove Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo to add grit to your hair and help keep the hairstyle in place better.

Why settle for a regular bun when you can add a braid in there to upgrade the hairstyle instantly! Adorn your braids with some pearly embellishments and other hair accessories for an ethereal look.
