Summer is here, bringing along sweaty necks, that won’t let our hair shine as fabulously as they should. But that’s no excuse to tie it up in a bun or ponytail for the rest of the season. Not on our watch!
We’ve rounded up some super cool celeb-inspired hairstyles that will help you take your hair game several notches higher this summer. Take a look…
- Soft waves
- Loose bun
- Poofy crown
- Springy ringlets
- Scarfed updo
- Classy low bun
- Twisted low pony
- Vintage waves
- Space buns
- Lazy pigtails
First up we have Sonam Kapoor’s beach, romantic waves to wear on breezy days and be caught in the wind! Sleep with your hair braided in multiple loose plaits, blowdry once in the morning and open them. The natural waves won’t require any heat styling and sit pretty under the sun.
Pro tip: Always wear a heat protectant spray in the summer, even when not styling. It will save your hair from sun damage.
Replace the messy buns with this cleaner and chicer version. Brush your hair thoroughly and tie it in the circular bun on your crown; the messier the better. Let a couple of tendrils out for fun!
If you were 10 or older in the 2000s, chances are you’ve spent multiple school function in poofy crowns. There was no escaping this syle back then and guess what, it might be making a comeback. Ananya Panday sported a stylish poofy crown and looked adorable; we are definitely trying it!
Shoulder length hair is the perfect cut for hot and sweaty days. One way to elevate the cut is by adding soft, springy ringlets to the ends. Aditi Rao Hydari looks vibrant in the hairstyle and we love how effortless it looks.
Come summer and head scarfs work as saving grace for your skin and hair. They protect you from tanning, greying and pigmentation. For curly-haired girls especially, this accessory becomes essential when it starts to get super hot and humid outside. Taapsee’s scarfed updo is not only chic but works wonder when it comes to taming all that frizz!
Classy low bun
Bebo knows how to best style her gorgeous hair; teasing and styling the fine tresses to perfection. This classy low bun is perfect for an evening soiree and will elevate any LBD to fit the occasion.
Twisted low pony
Don’t just abandon your low pony to do all the heavy lifting of looking cute; add some adorable twists and upgrade it. Let go of a couple of tendrils to frame your face for a flirty look.
Channel your inner Bollywood starlet with Jacqueline’s vintage ponytail and wavy bangs! Use hairspray to make the front wave hold and tie a clean middle length pony with the rest of the hair.
Take cues from Sayani Gupta and keep it cute and quirky this season with space buns and loose tendrils! Make a centre part all through the back and twist adorable little buns on the sides. Make sure they are even on both sides by aligning it with a pencil or a pen.
I personally love pigtails...they are silly, trendy and nostalgic of a carefree childhood. What better way than to enjoy summer than a pair of easy-to-do lazy pigtails. We love Sara Ali Khan’s trick of sectioning the pigtails with hair tires. It looks so cool!
