Yes, an interesting pair of shoes, or some statement accessories can
zest up your look. But that’s like the oldest trick in the book. Instead, why not trade in a boring hairdo for something sassy and fabulous? We look to a few stylish celebs for some tress-inspiration to stir up an ordinary style with a bold hairdo. Follow these simple steps to rock some mane magic like these gorgeous divas.
1. Alia’s Braided Undercut
Alia rocked this fiercely glam do on the red carpet. It’s a style that can just as easily be worn to a music fest to seriously up your trend game and it works on sleek, straightened hair like Alia’s or even on your natural texture.
: Create a deep side part all the way down to your nape, and add some glossing serum to your locks for a gorgeous shine.
: Section off the rest of your hair, which won’t be braided to make it easier to handle.
: Take 3 thin sections from the front of your hairline and being braiding. Continue French braiding diagonally down to the nape by grabbing loose strands of hair and incorporating it into the braid every time you cross it over to the other side.
: Once your braid reaches the nape of your neck, secure it with thin elastic and you can spritz some hairspray on it if you want, to keep it in place. Open the rest of your hair and let it fall over the braid.
2. Gauhar’s Wet Look
The slick, wet hair look Is one sexy trend we’ve seen plenty of international stars and models rock on the re carpet as well. Pair it with a dark pout like Gauhar to channel some extra drama.
: Comb towel-dried hair back. Take plenty of a wet-look gel like L’Oreal Professionnel Playball Motion Gelee
and apply it starting from your roots down till below your crown.
: Blow-dry your locks by brushing your hair from your hairline down to the back of your head, to get that formation in your hair.
: Once dry, you can use a flat iron on your locks, for that sleek, straight look.
3. Jacqueline’s Va Va Voom Volume
We can’t help but envy Jackie’s lush, voluminous locks every time she steps out. If flat limp hair is the bane of your existence, then try these steps for bigger and better locks just like the bombshell.
: If you have very fine hair, then you may want to start with a volumizing product like BBlunt Blown Away Volumizing Spray
, or you can simply take a dry shampoo and apply it from root to tip. We like L’Oreal Professionnel Techni Art Fresh Dust Dry Shampoo
. Apply your product section by section.
Flip your hair over, spritz on a bit more product and begin blow drying./
: Use your dryer on the cool setting and fluff your hair while upside down for some extra body and bounce.
4. Kangana’s Sleek Top Knot
Trust Kangana to add a fashionably glam twist to grunge with this head-turning look for the success bash of her movie. We love everything about this look from the dark smoky eyes to the fierce top knot.
: Flip your head over and gather your hair into a ponytail as high on your head as you can get it and secure with an elastic.
: Braid your ponytail so you have a super high plait.
: Wrap it around the base of the braid, on top of your head and secure with bobby pins.
5. Neha’s Beach Waves
We love Neha’s easy chic vibe - beach waves bring the perfect boho touch to a bright maxi dress. It’s a great look for some chilled out, fuss-free style.
: Add a texturizing spray to your mane like Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturizing spray
: If you have naturally wavy hair then all you need to do is scrunch and tousle your locks for fabulous waves. If you have straight hair then wrap sections at random around a curling iron and run your fingers through the waves for that effortless, messy look.
: Pin back the front of your hair for that half-open-half-down look like Neha.
