Sonam Kapoor Ahuja is no stranger to chic hairstyles and trendy hair accessories. However, it seems like the fashionista can’t get enough of styling her hair with threads, which are, BTW, the hottest hair accessory right now. And her hairstylists Hiral Bhatia and Alpa Khimani have done a fab job of weaving their magic into her locks!

If you have a box of crafty things from your childhood with all those colourful threads and strings in it lying somewhere, it’s time to pull it out. Take cues from Sonam on how to style your hair with trendy threads and steal the show. Here is a lowdown on three chic threaded hairstyles sported by Sonam Kapoor Ahuja for you to copy STAT.

Sonam dropped this gorgeous look during The Zoya Factor promotions and for those of you who didn’t notice, she donned red for every look. She teamed a red saree with what looked like a regular centre-parted low bun at first. But then she turned and BAM—our jaws dropped! Her bun had red and golden strings, intricately woven throughout, to match her outfit. It’s one of the most stunning buns we’ve seen in a while. Kudos to the hairstyle maverick Alpa Khimani!

If you thought threads are for uber-glam, detailed hairdos, here is one super chic and offbeat look to prove you wrong. For girls who don’t like their hair tied up tight, here is a relaxed hairstyle using the same trendy thread accessory that will fetch you some compliments for sure. Hiral styled Sonam’s hair in a loose, three-strand braid and secured it with a fine black thread instead of a hair tie to add some edge to the look. Next time you want to switch up your braid, try this trick.

Sonam celebrated Pride Month with rainbow-coloured threads in her hair and we were impressed. Her sleek twisted tail was wound up with some vibrant strings to secure it. To steal this look, make a twisted ponytail or a rope braid and simply wrap technicolour strings starting from the middle to the end, leaving an inch or so of the tail out. Clearly, it is a great way to make your hairdo purposefully stand out and much cooler. Why didn’t we think of this before?
