No matter what your hair length, letting your hair down is always one of the easiest options, especially if you’ve recently got a haircut that suits your style and face shape. But don’t you wish to shake things up a little when the festive season arrives? We, for one, believe braids are the perfect hairstyle to complement any festive outfit. And it seems like Alia Bhatt agrees with us; after all, braids are her go-to festive hairdo. Here are three braided hairstyles you can copy from the actress this festive season.


1. Side braids

Whether you have long hair or are flaunting medium hair like Alia, this side braids hairstyle is easy to achieve and perfect for all your festive outfits. Start at the crown of your head and create two braids on each side, secure at the back with a trendy metallic claw clip to get the look.


2. Half-up braid

Switch things up a bit by giving the regular half up half down hairstyle a twist. Part your hair in the middle and create two messy braids on each side. Secure them together at the back and keep it a little undone to look effortlessly stylish.


3. Messy fishtail braid

The October heat can ruin some of the prettiest hairstyles; so instead of letting your hair loose, try a braided hairstyle like Alia. A great way to look pretty and battle the heat is by opting for a messy fishtail braid. Let loose a few face-framing tendrils for an effortlessly chic vibe.
