Sonakshi Sinha’s new haircut is a boon for girls with wide foreheads

The right hairstyle can totally change your face

Other than having genetically blessed skin, Sonakshi Sinha’s other instantly recognisable feature is her proud forehead. Considered a sign of deep intellect and problem-solving skills, women with prominent foreheads (Hullo, Tyra Banks) can attest to their whole look revolving around this feature. Which is why Sonakshi’s new haircut, the latest in a long line of experimental styles, is completely transforming her face.

The feathered fringe is playing up Sonakshi’s jawline and bringing all our attention to her doe eyes and sharp cheekbones. Coupled with the actress’s incredible body transformation – the result of eating right and an unwavering dedication to working out — the new hairdo has her looking slimmer, refreshed and ready to take on the world.  

Which of Sonakshi’s styles made you want to book an appointment with your favourite hairstylist?

Celebrity-inspired easy hairstyles

Kangana Ranaut’s ‘I got this’ knot

Start by texturising your hair with a mouse and styling cream, before pulling it into a low ponytail. Divide it into two sections and create a knot with one and wrap the second section around the knot. You can take this look from day to play by loosely pulling out strands of hair from the knot to make it look undone. 

Anushka Sharma’s classic fishtail

The fishtail is the messiah of lazy girl hairdos. The more mess you make, the better it turns out to be. To cop Anushka’s slightly messy version, create a off-centre side parting and bring the hair to one side to create a semi-loose fishtail braid (here's a quick guide on how to make a fishtail braid). If you have a fringe or bangs, then you can use Velcro rollers to style them into quick submission. 

Katrina Kaif’s half-tied do

For once, Katrina Kaif’s low-key hairdo is actually effortless. To get this, first create an off-centre side parting. Then take a small section from either side and connect with an elastic band behind the head, so the ears are exposed. Use a fine-tooth comb to tease out small sections of hair to shape the face. 

Katrina Kaif’s half-done top knot

The hairstyle that’s fast becoming Bollywood’s favourite for the season is surprisingly easy to hack. Use a shine serum to get a glossy, wet look. Then section your hair into two. Use one section to create a top knot at the crown of your head. Clip part of the side sections of the remaining hair behind the head and then brush out the rest. You can tease out wisps of hair to frame your face for a more unstructured look.
