We are sure there isn’t any 90s kid who hasn’t grown up dancing to her famous songs Mehendi lagake rakhna and Yeh kaali kaali aankhein or watched and re-watched movies like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Bazigaar until you were able to recite every dialogue word-by-word. That’s the kind of charm birthday girl Kajol had back in the day.
And believe it or not, she continues to wow us even today. The only thing that has changed over the years is her girlish charm that has given way to oodles of grace and elegance. As Kajol adds another candle to her birthday cake today, we decided to celebrate her modern yet traditional personal style by listing down five hairstyles, which she paired with a saree that went on to become pure goals. Take a look.
- 01. Textured low bun
- 02. Gajra-adorned bun
- 03. Flirty ponytail
- 04. Retro bun
- 05. Effortless half up half down
01. Textured low bun
Low buns look really timeless and elegant with a saree, but we really like how Kajol takes this classic hairdo a notch higher by adding some texture to give it an instant upgrade.
02. Gajra-adorned bun
If you’re wearing a super traditional saree, then adorning your usual bun with a gajra, just like Kajol, helps add a lot of character to your overall look. If you aren’t a fan of the good ol’ gajra, then you can always substitute it with fresh flowers that match the colour of your saree.
03. Flirty ponytail
Ponytails may not really be the most obvious choice of hairstyle to go with a saree, but trust Kajol to pull it off with so much ease. The sleek low ponytail with face-framing tendrils beautifully enhance the unique design and cut of the blouse, while looking absolutely stunning.
04. Retro bun
Kajol can’t seem to get enough of pairing dainty, beautifully coiffed buns with her sarees, and if those buns turn out different and bookmark worthy each time, then who are we to complain? Take for example this lovely side-swept retro bun with a puffed-up front, which is definitely something you need to try for your BFFs roka!
05. Effortless half up half down
If you’re someone who doesn’t like experimenting with hairstyles but still want your hair to look like you put in some efforts, let Kajol show you how it’s done. We love how this simple half-up half-down hairdo with a slightly textured front and loose beachy-waves makes for a beautiful hairdo. This hairstyle right here is proof that one can never go wrong with the basics.
