If you have been keeping up with celebrity style and looks, you’ll notice that the two contrasting hair trends that are big in Bollywood are, minimal and dramatic. On one hand, Yami Gautam’s simple layer cut and Kriti Sanon’s half pull-through ponytail are making quite a statement for girls who prefer to keep it simple and sober. And on the other hand, Twinkle Khanna just chopped off her hair after 20 years, and it sure is a change that’s grabbing eyeballs. Don’t even get us started on Radhika Apte’s addition of braids to her messy bun because we’ve got one term for it - sporty chic. It’s a whole package for you this time of both dreamy and demure. Check out and try these stunning hairstyles!
Make-up artist Shraddha Naik sure knew how to complement Yami Gautam’s crisp look styled by Allia Al Rufai with a straight middle-parted hairstyle for that smart layer cut. It’s a style that keeps your look chic and it is easy to maintain too.

Twinkle Khanna surprised her fans by chopping her long luscious hair after 20 years and we are loving every bit of her power look. Managing long hair is quite a task these days, what with everyone’s busy and fast lifestyle. Short, layered hair is manageable and looks stunning too. Having said that, a well-textured haircut adds a good amount of volume to the mane.

We have to agree that Shilpa Shetty is always experimenting with both her beauty looks and style a lot. And for her recent look styled by Sanjana Batra, hairstylist Sheetal F Khan went ahead with a loosely braided fishtail and bumped up hairstyle. While sleek braids can appear a bit harsh at times, an added puff can enhance the texture. When combined with a loose fishtail braid, it adds volume, looseness and drama to the look.

Radhika Apte’s hair styled by Elton Fernandez with multiple braids going upwards is the one you would love to copy for your next vacay. Messy bun itself introduces drama to the look and braid-in-portions add a sporty style. What you get is a gypsy look, and we love it!

Deepika Padukone’s hairstylist Yianni Tsapatori perfectly added this hairstyle as a complement to her desi-outfit-with-a-belt look styled by Shaleena Nathani. The natural texture it adds is absolutely evident. It’s messy yet easy to make and maintain. And it allows you to use a section of your hair to bind the rest, which makes it look even more organic.

Hair styled by Aasif Ahmed, this half pull-through ponytail only adds to the formalness of Kriti Sanon’s smart-girl look, which is styled by celebrity stylist Sukriti Grover. It’s perfect for your meetings and formal events. It’s an easy-to-make style and adds just the right amount drama to your elegance. Not too much, not too less.

While we were looking at dramatic hair, Athiya Shetty’s hairstylist Adrian Jacobs took us back to the pinned back straight hair look. And we have to say - the simpler, the more chic. It’s one style you can try at both, formal events and weddings. The charm of this hairstyle is that it works well on both straight and curvy hair.
