While most of us crib if our hair is too curly or too straight or too wavy or too thin (well, the list is endless), there are super glam hairdos for each kind, ladies. And today, we explore the various ways to wear your hair stylishly if it’s JUST TOO STRAIGHT. Have a look at these 11 ways to style your straight hair and look every bit gorgeous! Who said straight hair always looks boring?!
1. Slicked back beauty

All you have to do is make a neat side parting and use some hairspray and a dash of gel to keep it slicked on the side and stay in place. Look as sexy and glam as Deepika Padukone and impress all, ladies.
2. The half top knot

3. Pony-bun, anyone?

Comb your hair and form a bun at the nape of your neck. However, instead of pulling the entire length of your hair in the bun, leave a few inches from the ends outside of the bun for it to hang like a ponytail. Funky fashionista alert!
4. Twisted and neat

This one in particular, brings forth quite an old world charm and can be paired with both Indian and western wear. After parting your hair neatly, twist the length of it well and collect all of it behind your ear. Secure this with pins and use a spray to keep this neat look intact. Finish off with pretty danglers.
5. Style by your side

Use some gel to get that extra shine and keep your cleanly parted hair in place. Then, secure your locks in a low ponytail on one side of your neck and that’s it! Simple and sexy, this.
6. Loose and flowy

7. Pretty up with a pouf

Separate the hair at the crown of your head and with the help of some back-combing or a bump-it, create a pouf on top of your head. How large you want that pouf to be is a call that’s completely yours to take. After that, just gather your hair in a ponytail and you’re ready for a fun night out!
8. Braided brilliance

9. Pick the sleek pony

10. Short and chic
