4 easy to do hairstyles that you can easily pull off this Karwa Chauth
The auspicious festival of Karva Chauth is around the corner and so is the excitement for many married women. It's a day where married women fast for the long life and health of their partners. While we all pre-plan our outfits (and some makeup too), most women leave hair for the last moment. If you’re one of them and have already started to fret, don’t do that (especially not when you’re fasting); we’ve got you covered. With these simple and easy Karva Chauth hairstyles, courtesy Pooja Singh, National Creative Director, Hair, Lakme Salon, you can take your festive look to the next level.
Fun with Buns
Sleek Low Bun:
Wearing a saree for Karva Chauth? The sleek low bun is the perfect match for your look. It is the easiest to do, looks elegant and with all the fasting, you won’t want to go for a complicated style. Take a centre parting and neatly comb all the hair back in a low tight ponytail. Wrap it into a low bun, dress with fresh flowers and a maang tikka to add a touch of glam. Use the TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece Massive Shine Hairspray to hold your bun in place and calm the flyaways.
Don't have time to blow dry your mane? Try the messy bun. This is also a great hairstyle for women with curly hair. Start by twisting your hair in a bun. Then take a fine section out, twist, peel and pin it around the bun creating a messy bun look. Use the Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Spray Flexible Hold hair spray to set the style in place. Leave a few strands around the face and attach a hair accessory or a rose (to set the romantic mood!) to enhance the whole look. Gather your hair first in a ponytail and twist it into a bun. We recommend doing the messy bun on a day-old hair. You can also add some dry shampoo to add texture to your bun. Use the TIGI Bed Head Oh Bee Hive Matte Dry Shampoo to add some texture and refresh your hairstyle.
The braided bun is another festive favourite that most celebrities hairstylists use. Part your hair in the middle and section it in two parts. French braid both the sections separately till the end. Once done, twist all remaining hair into a low bun at the nape of your neck and add the TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece Massive Shine Hairspray to hold the braided bun in place.
The pouf goes beautifully with open hair or a ponytail. Separate the top section of the hair and backcomb it with a tail comb or teasing brush. Now, without disturbing the backcomb, smoothen the hair and pin it up. You can tie the rest of the hair in a ponytail, bun or leave it loose and tong it. Worrying about loosening the pouf? Use the TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece Massive Shine Hairspray to hold the front pouf in place.
Want to show off your luscious locks this Karva Chauth? We recommend going for beachy waves to add texture and volume to the hair. Start by first applying a heat protecting spray. Curl your hair with a curling iron in sections, curl each section towards and away from your face to get the textured beachy look and follow up with theSchwarzkopf Professional Hair Spray Flexible Hold to hold it in place. If you have curly or wavy hair, we recommend using TIGI Bad Head Control Freak Frizz Control Serum to tame the frizz and also to enhance the curls, followed by the Schwarzkopf Professional Hair Spray Flexible Hold to hold the waves in place.
Straight parted hair
Not a fan of beachy waves? Go for the sleek, middle-parted look and add a maang tikka in the middle to complement your festive attire. Once finished, go over it with the TIGI Bed Head Masterpiece Massive Shine Hairspray to keep all flyaway hair at bay and add shine to your sleek hairstyle.
