Our love for short-haired Yami Gautam is well known, but this textured French mohawk braid is our all-time favourite as it adds that oomph-effect to your short hair. For this hairstyle, start by spraying some TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray on the lengths of your hair to protect it before curling it to create beach waves. Once done, take the middle section of your hair and create a pretty French braid and you’re good to go!


03. Side front braid

Want to take your glam up by a notch without making much effort? Then, this simple and cutesy side front braid hairstyle is perfect for y’all! For this hairstyle, start by applying TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Hair Serum along the length of your hair to avoid frizziness and add shine to your tresses. Once done, make a side parting in your hair and make a simple three-strand braid in the front and move to the side and secure it with a pin. And that’s all, easy peasy, right?


04. Loose braid with messy bun
