Do you remember the days your dresser was occupied with bobby pins, clutches and butterfly clips? Back then, elastic hair bands and fluffy scrunchies were a rage too. In fact, I still love them! The good part is that some of our Bollywood hotties have started flaunting them in their movies too! If you’ve got these hair accessories lying around at home, now is the time to bring them out. Take pictorial inspiration from these celebs and learn how to use your childhood hair accessories as a grown up. Good luck!
1. Deepika Padukone in Piku
Butterfly clips, bobby pins, mini claws and ribbons, you name it, you too can style your mane like Deepika! When shopping for clips you can either pick all of them in the same shade or pick colours that complement each other. While you’re at it, don’t forget to play around with colourful hair extensions too.
Alia’s chunky headband is still very much in vogue. The accessory is to be worn on sleek hair and teamed with minimal makeup to keep in touch with today’s trends. If you don’t want to leave your hair open, the hair band looks gorgeous with a low-ponytail and a fishtail braid too.
Shraddha Kapoor is the epitome of cuteness! Her hairstyle in Ek Villain is chic and minimal. She’s simply parted her hair to one side and used a cutesy bobby pin to secure her hair. Wear this hairstyle to a party and we bet you’ll fetch a bunch of compliments.
Sonam Kapoor could have gone for similar coloured scrunchies in Khoobsurat, but she chose to mix things up. For the girl who likes all things quirky, she should totally give this hairstyle a shot. To add that oomph effect, you can try double Dutch braids!
Wouldn’t it be fun to try this hairstyle all over again? Minus the bangs in front, a pretty crown ponytail decorated with pins is bound to make you look the star if the show. You can also use a hairspray to set and tame your hair.
I had a bunch of these thick headbands when I was school. Till now if I wear them, I think I can still pull it off. You still get them in a variety of colours. Here’s a simple DIY trick - Incase, you feel your hair accessory looks too plain, you can stitch tiny charms, studs and pearls on the band.
Say what you want, but pigtails will never go out of fashion. Rubbery leather scrunchies make the pigtails stand out even more. A summer dress, white sneakers, a faux-leather satchel and this hairstyle is bound to make you look like a million bucks.
