Braids are a timeless classic! If you want to draw attention to your outfit and face, we suggest opting for the intricate yet stylish French braids. Give it a festive touch with a golden thread at the bottom. Braids look the best when they are slightly messy so don't forget to tease out sections for the effortlessly messy look.

Letting your tresses down is always a good idea! Long loose waves are perhaps one hairstyle which we definitely cannot get enough of. Soft, romantic and super chic, they will definitely add grace to any ethnic outfit. To nail perfect waves make sure you add ample hairspray for voluminous texture.

Want to let your hair down and yet flaunt those heavy jhumkis? Twists are just the hairdo you should be looking at. Whether straight or wavy, twists look great either way. To get these twists all you need to do is create a middle parting, twist your hair and pin it with bobby pins. We recommend pulling out a few strands on either side to frame your face.
