If you have been following actress Rashmi Desai since her Uttran days, you’d have noticed that a lot has changed about the actress over the years. While she is still the same cute, bubbly girl we fell in love with, one of the things, which has truly evolved, is her beauty game.

While the actress still prefers to keep her makeup minimal with an occasional statement pout, we really think Rashmi has been totally killing it in the hairstyle department (and with hair that long and gorgeous, we really don’t blame her!). From trying out edgy boxer braids to loading up on some trendy hair accessories, Rashmi Desai’s hair game is super versatile.

So on the occasion of the actress’s 35th birthday today, here are five Rashmi-inspired hairstyles that we think are perfect for V-day. Check ‘em out.

 

01. Hairpins

If you aren’t equipped with the skillset required to create elaborate hairstyles, you should definitely invest in a few hair accessories ASAP. They not only look trendy and stylish but are a great way to glam up your entire look with minimal efforts. We like how Rashmi has accessorised her otherwise basic waves with metallic hairpins.

 

02. Big mermaid waves

If you have long, thick and voluminous locks like Rashmi, you should style your hair in these dreamy mermaid waves. This is a great way to add some more body and texture to your hair while keeping things fun and casual.

 

03. Boxer braids

We love how badass boxer braids look when paired with a formal pantsuit. Rashmi’s taken this hairstyle a notch higher and made it her own by adding a little more texture, thanks to the slightly undone look of the braids and face-framing tendrils. If you are recreating this hairstyle, allow your hair to take centre-stage by keeping the rest of your makeup subtle.

 

04. Cornrow braided half-up half-down

If you’re planning to take the road less travelled and wear an ethnic outfit on V-day, here’s an edgy hairstyle to up the drama. Who would have thought you could pair cornrow braids with a traditional Indian outfit? But Rashmi’s managed to pull this unique combination with so much panache! The cornrow braided front lends a no-nonsense appearance to this look, while the wavy ends help in keeping things super soft and feminine.

 

05. Textured low ponytail

A textured low ponytail is one of the most versatile hairstyles ever. Rashmi’s paired this classic hairstyle with a contemporary saree to make it look more modern, but you could pair with a dress, subtle shimmery eyes and a bold red pout for your date night this V-Day.
