Celeb-Approved ‘Dos To Pair Your Face-Framing Tendrils With
The simplest way to upgrade your ‘do is by plucking a few face-framing tendrils out of your hair, and draping them over the sides of your face — romantic, Disney-esque, and effortless. These tendrils pair beautifully with varying aesthetics and lend a certain softness to your look. Here’s a round-up of the different ways you can channel this style depending on your mood demonstrated by your go-to glamazons — read on.
She Can’t Come To The Phone Right Now — She’s Upgrading Her Hair
A Sweeping ‘Do To Sweep You Off Your Feet
Sonam wears her locks in a messy, centre-parted braid with face-framing tendrils draped on either side of her face. This one’s simple to recreate — just isolate a few face-framing chunks of your hair toward the front of your head to mimic the aesthetic, and pull the rest of it into a loose two-way braid. Secure the end with a rubber band or a scrunchie. The ‘do screams sultry and effortless, and it doesn’t take more than a minute or two to replicate. No fuss!
Half Up, Half Down For When You’re Not Sure
American singer-songwriter Olivia Rodrigo debuts different ‘dos all the time. This half-up, half-down hairstyle is no exception. Start off by parting your hair down the centre, and pulling out a couple of face-framing chunks. Set them aside. Proceed to sweep the top half of your hair back, and secure it with a clip of your choice — you can even try a sleek bun. Let the rest of the hair fall neatly on your shoulder. If you pull this off, Good 4 U.
Let The Tendrils Do The Talking
If your tendrils are chunkier and shorter like Olivia’s, try recreating this Gen-Z-approved hairdo. This one’s not an under-2-minute hairstyle — but the end results are worth it. Start off with the pigtails — separate the bottom half of your hair into two chunks of the same thickness, and secure them with elastics to create low-hanging ponytails on both sides. The placement of elastics for this style depends on the length of your hair. Add an elastic one inch from the original one, and add another one after – continue till the end of your tresses. You don’t have to maintain an equal distance between the elastics — notice how Olivia’s are placed randomly. Use your fingers to pull at every section to fluff it up. This will loosen the braid, and create a bubble-like effect. Repeat the same with the top half of your hair and you’re done.
A Basic ‘Do For When The Romantic In You
If a Kardashian has done it, you know it has passed the vibe. If you have naturally straight hair then just sweep all of your hair back into a sleek ponytail, and pluck some of your tendrils out before posing for a loved-up photo with the person you’d dance to ‘I take this magnetic force of a man (woman) to be my lover’ with. If your hair is a little wavy or curly, then you might want to use a straightener — unless you want your natural texture to work the magic on this ‘do.
For The Love Of Messy Buns That ‘Mess’ It Up Right
Kim K has a crystal-clear tryst with messy, sky-high buns, and we’ve found a way to recreate the look effortlessly. Part your hair down the middle, and create two high ponytails on both sides of the head. Tie hair-ties around each ponytail twice, and on the third/final loop, don’t pull the ponytail through. Pull it halfway to create a fanned-out bun instead. Once you’ve done this on both sides, you need to cross the buns over one another (pull one loop through the other loop) and pin them into place. Tuck in the ends of your hair, and pin them down. You can proceed to pull out a couple of face-framing chunks to nail the look.
Locks For Times When You’re Meeting The Aunties
You can weave your hair into a tight, jewel-encrusted braid just like Kiara has. Start off by making a low ponytail at the base with a transparent hair tie. Go on to accessorise the ponytail with a chain or necklace of your choice. You can secure the accessory with a u-pin. Divide your hair into two sections, and start making a fishtail braid with a golden thread. Take bigger sections, and alternate them with the golden thread. Once you reach the base, cover the end with another golden thread. Pull at some sections to make the braid look voluminous and tousled, and pluck out some face-framing chunks to conclude this sundar look.
