Finding the perfect outfit for Diwali is just the beginning; the look can only come together once you have zeroed in on the perfect hair and make-up choices to complement your ensemble.
For the latter, allow Bollywood’s best names to serve up a bevy of easy-to-DIY hairstyles that you can try yourself at home:
Aditi Rao Hydari’s Indianwear choices have always made heads turn, and part of the credit lies in her styling decisions—like this slicked-back bun with a finger-combed finish that she elevated by tucking in fresh blooms.
If you are looking to go hands-free for the month’s festivities, Kiara Advani’s no-muss, no-fuss ponytail is a worthy contender for your Diwali look. For best results, try her tousled iteration at home with second-day hair as it offers better volume and more grip.
If comfort is what you seek, Karisma Kapoor’s slicked-back bun with a wet-looking finish makes for a timeless choice and also works as an easy canvas for accessories, like the matha patti that she rounded out her look with.
If you are looking to break free from the usual suspects, Kriti Sanon’s half-up hairstyle offers the comfort of a tied-back hairdo with the impact of a flowy style. For extra sartorial cred, thread in a string of jewels around the twists on either side of your crown.
After all, there is no going wrong with classics! Malaika Arora’s textured waves make for an easy finishing touch for just about any outfit and offer enough volume to merit a raincheck on earrings altogether.
