Actor, model and philanthropist, South Indian actress Samantha Akkineni dons many hats. She’s known for her charismatic personality and her superior acting chops — the prestigious awards in her kitty are proof of the same.
But it’s not only her acting chops that have won our hearts, we are also huge fans of the actress’s chic yet experimental hairstyles. Her hairstyles are not only super trendy but will go perfectly with all your ethnic outfits. So as Samantha Akkineni gears up to celebrate her 34th birthday today, we took this opportunity to list down five of her hairstyles for ethnic wear. Check ‘em out…
01. Half up half down
Irrespective of the outfit, occasion or season, you simply cannot go wrong with a half-up half-down hairstyle, and Samantha is proof. The simple textured front and loosely curled ends give this look such a feminine appeal, matching beautifully with this gorgeous saree.
02. Retro waves
While Samantha usually prefers keeping her makeup simple, she more than makes up for it in the hair department. Here she styled a traditional Indian outfit with classic Hollywood waves, and we think it looks stunning! If you are in the mood to do something different, this is one hairstyle you should definitely try.
03. Low bun
Traditional Indian outfits and low bun make for such a gorgeous combination, don’t you think? Even though it’s pretty simple, this low bun looks really chic, and the deep side partition helps frame Samantha’s face so beautifully. This hairstyle is so super simple to recreate and is perfect for girls with medium to long hair.
04. Messy braid
We love how Samantha Akkineni has styled an edgy black saree with this beautiful, messy three-strand braid! If you recreate this hairstyle, remember to let a few face-framing strands loose to help soften your features and give the hairstyle some more character.
05. Floral bun
Samantha is a total vision in this beautiful white saree, which she paired with a sleek bun and subtle makeup. The best part about this look is the addition of that lovely assortment of white flowers, which give this entire outfit a super dreamy vibe. ,; we
