The first and foremost thing that changes your entire look is your hairstyle. Deepika is a fine example of how you can rock various looks with the help of one magic wand - your hairbrush! Your hairstyle is not just an extension of your outfit but it also complements your face cut. All you need to do is pick the right style for the occasion and well, your hair texture. We decided to pick out some signature Deepika Padukone hairstyles to add to your lookbook!
While a typical clubbing night with your girlies does not need much decking up, a simple yet chic hairstyle can change your entire look. Keep it simple and classy like Deepika with her luscious mane falling over her shoulders.
Points to remember:
- Finer hair requires lesser sections and braids than thicker hair. Use a comb to divide your hair into one to six sections.
- For uniform waves divide your hair into even sections. For natural waves, divide your hair into uneven sections.
- While braiding to create waves, either choose braids that fall from the roots to the ends or start near the top of your ear for the same.
- French braids will produce waves in your tresses from root to tip.
- Traditional three-strand braids will create uniform waves from the top of your ears to the ends of your hair.
While you can opt to go without hair products or serums, a well-styled hairstyle can take you from day to night! Using products to smoothen your hair without using a flat-iron to straighten them, can work with both your casual and western looks. Tip: Try avoiding this hairstyle if you have a round shaped face as it might make your face look fuller.
While you can opt for straight or wavy hair, a messy braided look would set you apart. It will work wonders for that special lunch date or just a Sunday brunch with your gal pals. Deepika set major hair braid goals with her offbeat front braids and twists!
You can also take inspiration from her looks and opt for a half up and half down hairdo. Alternatively, you can try different braiding styles, such as the waterfall braid. It may seem difficult at first but once you put it into practice, you will be able to create and rock the look with ease.
How to achieve this look :
You can check this tutorial to help you create the braid or you can follow the steps below:
1. Start by combing your hair and loosening away any knots.
2. Take the top section of hair closest to your hairline and start braiding it into a three-strand braid.
3. After a few knots, take a new section on top and leave it in the center.
4. Continue with the normal braid by adding new sections to it.
5. Repeat this sequence over and over until you have reached the desired length.
6. Finish the braid by twisting the remaining two sections together and holding it in place with an elastic tie. Sprinkle a little texture powder or a setting spray all over the braid and pull it apart slightly to give your braid a fuller appearance.
7. Repeat the same process on the other side.
When you want to nail that presentation and feel confident while doing so, look no farther than Deepika to give you some major inspiration. You can opt for poker straight hair with products in it to not make it look too tacky, as well as making it sit well.
