The 1-minute hairstyle every Bollywood actress is wearing this summer
Alia, Anushka and Priyanka already approve
When the weather is a zillion degrees outside and you’ve officially crossed into witching hour, your hair has no place on your priority list. Behold, the lazy girl essential: the half-up bun that’ll get you through summer with your sanity in place.
Simply grab hold of all your hair from the span of one ear to the other and twist it into a bun. Precision isn’t key here, so you can ignore that one stray lock that decides to stand out poker stiff, just because it can.
Messy half-up ‘dos have been doing the rounds on the runway for the past two years now. But only recently has this hairstyle hit full stride on the celebrity style circuit. From Sonam Kapoor’s super sleek version to Sonakshi Sinha’s hasty half-knot, you’re going to see these babies everywhere this summer. Here’s who wore it best:
Business in the front, party in the back. The beauty of this hairstyle lies in the fact that you don’t have to be Alia Bhatt to get away with flyaways and strays.
Hairstyle trends have never been more in love with natural kinks and curls. Bring out your clipboard and take notes from Anushka Sharma’s lazy half bun. Let your tresses air-dry after a shower and fix a hairband around the upper half before the flyaways get any ideas.
When the sun and the sand are calling, twist your hair into a lazy half-knot; the messier, the better. The half updo will keep the hair out of your eyes, while the half-down tresses will give you that sexy flutter you need for some Instagram bragging.
Second day hair, don’t care. Tame that slight greasiness of unwashed hair into a slick half ‘do. Mean cat-eye liner optional.
Or you could try a sophisticated version of this lazy girl hairstyle à la Shraddha: Run some serum through your hair while it’s wet and comb back the upper half into a preppy half ponytail.
For those days when you can’t even, but your bud Jimmy Fallon has plans for you, just bunch your hair into a voluminous bun on the top of your head. You’ll forget it’s even there, we promise.
