Diwali festivities usually require you to bring your A-game from head to toe. Hairstyles can make or break your glam, so you could be wearing a stunning traditional outfit that features intricate handwork and zardosi borders, but it’s glory will be dimmed if your make-up and hair is not in place.
However, styling hair is no easy task, and usually what looks good is complicated and requires professional help. After all, your hair has a mind of its own and not all days are good hair days. All that being said—they can’t be overlooked.
But instead of going to pinterest to find hairdos that probably require a bottle of hairspray, we’ve found five fun and festive hairstyles to experiment with this Diwali. These hairstyles have been sported by celebrities ranging from Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone to Ananya Panday, Sobhita Dhulipala and Sonam Kapoor, so you know they’ll help you stand out from the crowd.
5 Festive Hairstyles Sported By Celebrities To Try This Diwali
1. Sleek High Pony
Ananya Panday recently sported a sleek high pony as she attended a Skims x Swaroski event. Given the OTT jewellery the actor is wearing, you can see how this hairstyle keeps her tresses out of the way, to let her ensemble do the talking, while also elevating it’s chicness.
2. Messy Low Bun
Deepika Padukone wore a Louis Vuitton outfit at the opening night of Jio World Plaza in Mumbai. Her off-shoulder dress was well complimented by her messy bun, where the mess was more concentrated around DP’s crown and not just the sides or the bun. While the actor chose this look to wear with a dress, we can’t help but imagine how stunning it would look with a traditional ensemble.
3. Pin-Up Style
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja channelled ’20s glamour by embracing a pin-up hairstyle for a recent event in Mumbai. It complimented her old-school printed sari and puff-sleeved blouse perfectly. With her bangs pinned up neatly to the left and the rest of the hair flowing freely, it’s super chic and easy to recreate.
4. Half-Up Pigtails
It may seem unorthodox, but it works! Don’t take our word for it, just look at how cute Priyanka Chopra Jonas looks in her half-up pigtails. Not only is this hairstyle really easy to recreate, it also adds a sense of whimsy and youthfulness to any ensemble.
5. Sleek Bun With Flowers
This hairstyle is a timeless classic and is perfect for Diwali. While Sobhita Dhulipala opted to create a Freida Kahlo-esque look with Baby’s-breath, you can use any flower of your choice and place it strategically to match the vibe of your outfit. And if you’re one for minimalism, ditch the flowers all together—because you can never go wrong with the classic sleek bun.
