Alia Bhatt has most certainly made her mark in Bollywood and has only gone upwards since her debut in Karan Johar’s Student of The Year in 2012. She is known for her stellar performances in Highway, Raazi, Badrinath Ki Dulhania and more recently Raazi and Kalank. She has become a name to be reckoned with and has recently made waves with her stylish looks and sartorial choices. She is a natural beauty and inspires women every day. So here we decided to decode one of Alias’s go-to hairstyles and how you can achieve the look at home.
In the summer heat, it’s always best to keep your hair tied back and out of your face, in order for you to get on with the day in peace. We believe this is the perfect look as not only does it keep your hair out of your face, but it also looks super chic, stylish and adds a hint of pizazz to your #OOTD.
While it may take a few attempts to get it right, with just a few styling products, you can easily get the look at home within minutes. This look will best be created if it is not freshly washed. A day old washed hair will give it the right consistency and texture to work with.
Brush your hair through from scalp to root to make sure you’ve smoothed out all the strands and create your middle parting. Spritz some hairspray all over to smooth out further so you can control the pesky little hair which refuse to sit still. Take a pea sized amount of hair gel, preferably a wet look one to give you that glossy, shiny finish, and apply it to the top of your hair till where the ponytail will begin.
You will then need a boar bristle brush to smooth the hair down and start forming your ponytail. Make sure you set your ponytail in the middle of your head, or alternatively ask someone to guide you while you tie it up. Pull back all your hair with the help of the brush and using a transparent elastic, pull your hair into your ponytail. Use the boar brush to smooth over any loose ends and to settle any fly aways.
For the ponytail, you can style it as you desire. Whether you opt to keep it straight or messy, crimped or curled, ensure the styling is done before you are about to put in a ponytail.
