Janhvi Kapoor has been serving us some serious sizzling looks with her latest photoshoot in collaboration with ace designer Manish Malhotra. This simple, fuss-free, and sensual updo is perfect for all those gorgeous women who want to dance the night away while swaying with a glass of champagne in hand. To start off, comb through your hair to smoothen any tangles. Start backcombing at the crown area to add some texture. Twist, turn and secure each strand of hair into a neat bun. Smoothen and secure the entire hairstyle with a texturizing hairspray to hold it in place. Complete the look with dewy, minimal makeup and a flushed cheek. This simple yet stunning look will make you the talk of the party in an instant!

2. Side Braids with Soft Curls like Sargun Mehta

Sargun Mehta has dominated the Punjabi Film Industry massively for a long time now. Her Instagram is filled with different ethnic looks which give us a glimpse into her love for sarees, suits, Kurtis, and more! This Diwali, take some inspiration from the diva, by opting for loose curls and texturized side braids with tiny little flowers neatly pinned in it. Start with a middle parting and section the front strands of your hair into two parts. Twist and form a rope braid and secure it with some black/transparent hair ties. Loosen it a little and pin it at the back of your head. For an added traditional accessory, add some white baby breath/mogra/jasmine flowers into the hair to complete the look. Finish it with a flexible hold hairspray and voila! You are all done to shine like a star at the next Diwali party!

3. A Bun Filled with Fresh, Oversized Flowers like Dia Mirza

Dia Mirza has been the ultimate definition of somber beauty in the Bollywood industry since her debut days with the cult classic movie “Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein.” This Diwali takes some inspiration from the new mommy as she dishes out some jaw-dropping ethnic looks. A bun filled with fresh oversized flowers is something that will surely make all the heads turn in your next big Diwali bash. Start off by curling your hair in soft curls. Twist and tie them up in a ponytail. Leave out some loose strands to frame your face. Pin the ponytail up neatly into a bun and finish it off with some strong hold hairspray. To make sure the oversized flowers stay in place all day long, do not completely trim off the stem. Attach them with some U-Shaped bobby pins for easy application and you are all done to rock the night away.

4. The Classic Blowout like Tara Sutaria

Tara Sutaria might only be a few films old but she has managed to grab a lot of eyeballs through her stark on and off-screen appearances. Her looks have been widely discussed in the media in a positive light and we couldn’t agree more! For Diwali, Tara Sutaria’s classic wavy blow-dried hair is the easiest option for all those who are running late to the party. Prep your hair the night before by adding a bit of texturizing hair powder to absorb all the excess grease and dirt. Curl the ends loosely with a bristle brush and some heat protectant hair dryer to avoid damage and split ends. This is also a great option for those who don’t have the time to wash/condition your hair from the night before. This Diwali night get your own Bollywood moment as you flick your hair in slow motion while capturing those stunning reels on Instagram.   

5. Beachy Waves like Sonakshi Sinha

Sonakshi Sinha is the ultimate definition of fierce, unabashed, and being unapologetically herself. Her looks have been a mix of ethnic, androgynous, and trendy. Her recent bridal picture from the photoshoot of Khush Magazine has been splashed extensively across our news feed and we couldn’t have been happier. Beachy waves are one of the most sizzling hairstyles to achieve. If done correctly this look can amp up your entire ensemble within minutes. Spay in some texturizing hairspray before and after using the hot hair tools to make it last for the whole day. If you want to avoid using any heat on your hair, then dampen your strands and braid them in. Cover them with a soft t-shirt overnight and voila! You have beachy waves in the morning!

We hope that these “lit” hairstyles will amp up your Diwali look and get you grooving for the night. Zoylee wishes all its readers a very happy festive season!
