Low bun (twisted)
A low bun is that type of hairstyle which goes with literally any outfit. To create this hairstyle, you need hairspray (optional), a few bobby pins or hair clips, and a comb. First, brush out your hair to remove any tangles. Then start wrapping the hair in circular motions. It will look like a small ball after you finish twisting it. Secure it with bobby pins or hair clips. It does not have to be perfect, as messy buns are very trendy right now. You can use hairspray if you want a cleaner look that lasts all night.
A ponytail is a tried and trusted hairstyle that never fails to serve. It goes very well with traditional outfits as well. Rock it with a saree or kurta easily. For this hairstyle, you will need a scrunchie/hair tie, comb, and hairspray (optional). First, comb your hair properly and get rid of all the knots. Then pull it up into a ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. You can even use bobby pins for extra support. Control the small flyaway hairs in the front with some hairspray, and you’re good to go.
Side braid (messy)
If you are in a hurry and you see yourself getting late for the occasion, just put your hair in a messy braid! It will look classy and effortless. Just lightly brush your hair and start braiding your hair normally. It doesn’t have to be perfect because we’re going for a messy look. Lastly, secure it with a hair tie, and your messy braid is done.
