Janhvi Kapoor is having super busy days promoting her next movie, the horror comedy Roohi. The stunner is making the most of the virtual promotional activities by glamming up and decking out in her signature stylish ensembles and gorgeous makeup. And why not, after spending a year in pyjamas and messy buns, anybody would want to go all out on their glam, even if it is for a quick Zoom sesh. Her efforts are not going in vain because we are documenting all of her makeup and hair looks for our own virtual meet-up needs, with one particular hairstyle catching our fancy like no other...
Janhvi’s half up half down hairstyle, which her hairstylist Hiral Bhatia affectionately called a ‘Samurai bun’ is such a cool and trendy way to elevate even the most basic of ensembles. It has a messy and lived-in quality to it, meaning it is perfect for day 2 or day 3 hair to instantly zhush up your mane. It is also super easy to do, so lazy girls can grab their notepads and start taking notes. Here's how you can recreate it in 3 simple steps…
Step 01: Prep - Freshen up your scalp with the TIGI Bed Head Oh Bee Hive Matte Dry Shampoo and brush out your weighed down mane. Make sure to get rid of every speck of dry shampoo from your scalp. Follow this up with the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Hair Serum, applying from mid-lengths to ends and clear any knots in your hair with a paddle brush.
Step 02: Add texture - To recreate that messy and grime-y texture, work in some TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Texture Paste from the mid-lengths to the ends. Follow this up with the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray to minimise the damage that might be caused by your straightening iron in the next step. The heat protection spray also helps keep frizz in check on a hot summer day.
Step 03: Add waves and the bun - With your straightening iron, use the twisting hand motion to add minimal waves to your hair. Do this by sectioning your hair so into thick strands to keep the waviness to a minimum. Collect the hair on your crown to create a half bun, and leave some face-framing tendrils loose in the front. Set the hairstyle with the TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece Massive Shine Hairspray for a dramatic glossy look under the sun!
