Deepika Padukone just proved you’re never too old to twin with your sister
When you're both having great hair days...
Deepika Padukone is arguably India’s most beloved actress. Her younger sister Anisha is a rising star on the golf circuit. And while a recent TV show revealed that the sisters were as different as chalk and cheese, even they can’t resist a #twinning moment every now and then. Deepika and her sister stepped out at the Mumbai airport earlier today, looking like they walked right off a Levi’s campaign (we imagine the execs at Levi’s HQ have all just given themselves the rest of the day off). The sisters sported identical Levi’s T-shirts, black jackets and matching Nike Cortez sneakers.
While Deepika wore her jeans cut boxy and loose, Anisha showed off those golfer legs in a pair of skinnies. Padukone the younger may be new to the omnipresent paparazzi, but she’s got the oversized sunglasses and “I’m so over this” half-smile down pat.
Now about that perfect Padukone hair…
How to colour your hair like your favourite celebrity
What to ask your hairstylist: “A light brown colour applied globally with weaves of burgundy in between. If you have darker hair, you might have to pre-lighten the bits you’re dyeing burgundy to give them a red-orange undercoat. This helps the colour to catch faster and look more vibrant,” says Chudasama.
Try it if: You’re in the mood for something funky and on-trend.
What to ask your hairstylist: “A sombre hair colouring technique, also known as ‘soft’ or ‘subtle’ ombre that’s a lot less dramatic and stark than the classic. Leave your roots to the natural colour and start 3-4 inches below with a deep mocha colour (like L’Oreal Professionnel’s Majirel 5.8) that slowly transitions into a lighter shade.”
Try it if: You can’t stand the thought of light highlights.
What to ask your hairstylist: “Opt for the dark brown highlights with the traditional foil technique over majority of your hair. Then, ask your stylist to go over with a lighter golden brown with a free hand brush to add depth at key points. It’s basically like contouring, for your hair.”
Try it if: You need to frame the right features.
What to ask your hairstylist: “Ask for balayage highlights that are applied to certain sections from your root to tip for a blended and natural, sun-kissed look. It’s a low-commitment change to your natural colour and it looks great when it grows out,” says Chudasama.
Try it if: You don’t have time for multiple touch-ups.
What to ask your hairstylist: "Ask for babylights — they're like subtle highlights that are concentrated on the crown and towards the ends to make them look brighter. First, use a lighter shade like a caramel brown and then go over with a darker one from the same family to make it look natural and warm. The most important is to be sure that the highlights around the hairline and mid-lengths are super fine, or it looks just like a basic highlight."
Pro Tip: It looks the best on those with very fine or thin hair.
