Pooja redefines festive hairstyles with this super edgy and unique hairstyle. A beautiful mix of milkmaid braids that end in a low bun looks extremely classy even when paired with a lehenga. If you are planning to recreate this hairdo, keep oodles of setting spray handy to avoid pesky flyaways.

2. Wet hair waves

If you think that the wet hair trend is a little OTT for you, then allow Pooja to prove you wrong. We love how refreshing this wet hairdo is, especially thanks to those soft, natural waves. Pair this hairstyle with lots of highlighters and a fresh dewy base for a perfect understated glam makeup look.


3. Tousled half-up half-down

The easiest way to style your hair to match your festive attire is the good old’ half-up half-down. The unstructured finish and puffed-up front help give your face the illusion of length, thereby making it an amazing choice for girls with the round face shape. Don’t forget to let loose a few face-framing tendrils for a more effortlessly stylish appearance.


4. Side-parted low ponytail

Ponytails may not be an obvious festive hairstyle choice, but with just a few tweaks, Pooja manages to convince us to give this one a try. We love the deep side-parting and the laid-back low ponytail. Don’t forget to gently backcomb the ponytail for some added volume.


5. Textured gajra bun

No festive Indian hairstyle list is ever complete without a gajra-adorned bun, is it? We love how simple yet absolutely stunning this hairdo looks on Pooja and can’t wait to recreate it this season. Everything from the textured front to the gajra-covered bun spells timeless elegance. Spray on a little texturising spray like the TONI & GUY Hair Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray to get that lovely texture and hold in no time.
