From impressing critics and audiences with her acting chops in the popular television series Pavitra Rishta to featuring in quite a few blockbuster movies on the silver screen, Ankita Lokhande’s career graph is inspiring to say the least.

Apart from her superior talent and mega-watt smile, the actress also makes us envy her luscious locks. Long, healthy, bouncy, and perfectly textured, the actress never misses an opportunity to style her crowning glory in super chic hairdos.

So, as Ankita celebrates her 36th birthday today, we decided to list down five times the actress gave us major hairstyles goals. Excited? Let’s begin…


1. Side-swept wet hair look

Ankita loves experimenting with the latest hair trend. The actress looks effortless carrying the risqué wet hair look, and extreme side part. We love how elegant this edgy hairstyle looks on Ankita.


2. Textured bun

The actress is blessed with gorgeous curls. We love how she’s styler her curls in a messy, low bun while letting loose a few hair tendrils to from her face. Such a timeless hairdo for curly-haired girls, na?


3. Messy half up half down

Messy half up half down

If you’re forever confused about how to style your hair for a fun brunch date with your girls, take inspo from Ankita. Simply style your hair in a quick and effortless half up half down hairstyle. Curl the ends to add some texture and pull out some face-framing tendrils for an effortless vibe.


4. Retro waves

Retro waves

Retro waves is a timeless hairstyle, and we love how Ankita pulls it off with so much elan. This is one of our personal favourite reception hairstyles; simply because it looks equally good with a saree, as it does with a gown.


5. Top-knot


Another classic hairstyle that Ankita loves is the top knot. We love the natural and effortless texture of this bun. Those gorgeous free-flowing strands in the front make this hairstyle look super romantic and dreamy.
