The first show on Day 4 of Lakmé Fashion Week 2021 set the tone for the rest of the day! It was pretty clear that today we’ll be witnessing statement hair looks that are stunning and enhance the theme of the show. From conceptual hairstyles that you will only see on fashion runways, to more casual and pretty ones that can be recreated IRL, the day gave us so much #HairGoals.
We picked out four of our favourite hair looks from the day. Check ‘em out…
01. Big bow and low
Limerick by Abirr and Nanki’s ‘Aurora’, inspired by the 400-year-old art form of Pichwai that first originated in Nathdwara, Rajasthan, presented a resort wear collection created with district colours and motifs. To match their exaggerated silhouettes, the models’ hair was done up in low ponytails and secured with larger than life bows that almost doubled up as faux collars for the ensembles. Combining the minimalism and charm of a sleek low ponytail with an accented accessory like a big bow was such a treat to watch on the digital runway.
02. A touch of tech
Nitin Bal Chauhan’s conceptual fashion presentation titled ‘Faux-Amis/false friends’ deals with the theme of building connections in the virtual world. To match the show's surreal theme, the hair was done up in tight, high ponytails, with the crown elevated with metal rings. Patches of hair were sprayed with white to add more drama to the overall look.
03. A bohemian afternoon
Payal Singhal's drive-in special presentation ‘Kismet’ is an athleisure collection inspired by the loungewear staples we spent quarantining in. The boho ensembles were matched with equally fun and flirty hair looks. Full with a headband adorned beachy waves, scarf buns, messy pigtails and loose tendrils peeking through vacay hats, the hair looks exuded a light, breezy and casual vacay vibe we love!
04. The age of innocence
Samant Chauhan’s collection titled ‘New Born’ featured models in silver, off-white and black palettes and was a treat for the eyes. The models’ double braids, which were fused into one, is reminiscent of the hairdo our grandmothers used to sport in black and white family portraits. While we do not see ourselves fusing our braids anytime soon, we definitely would love a pair of those sheer ribbons please!
