The festival of colours is just around the corner. Yes, we are talking about Holi. While this festival screams fun and laughter, it is also the only festival that can wreak havoc on your beauty game. The toxic colours used to play Holi can actually bring your skin and hair game down. Therefore, it’s best to use non-toxic and herbal colours as they don’t cause damage.

While nothing can stop you from being a part of this exciting festival, it is always a great idea to take certain precautions so as to not let your hair game suffer. Protective, yet stylish hairstyles, can make you look Holi-ready! Therefore, we’ve got you covered with hairstyles you can sport on long as well as short tresses this Holi.

Here you go.
