Five Indian Hairstyles

A haircut every few months ends up being the closest many of us get to experimenting with hairstyles. Playing around with how you wear your hair for every occasion could actually turn around your routine look. This week, we’re charting out a list of top five hairstyles that have been popular all along, from the time of our grandmothers to now, picked up from the runway and streets alike.

Gone are the days when one would only stick to the Indian style braid. If you’ve always felt that braids don’t quite suit your get-up, you could give these pleated styles a shot.

A ponytail makes for the perfect subtle number to go with Indowestern attires, in its rustic and modern accents. From a high ponytail played around with fringes to a laidback hair tie-up, the ponytail goes with wavy, curly and straight hair.
