Go for two top knots or a French braid instead of tying your hair in a boring bun or a pony tail for a fun party, say experts.
TIGI educator Anushka Moniz along with the participants of Hair Heroes 2016 contest have shared ideas for a chic look:
Begin with using a dry shampoo on your lengths and ends to help create texture. Take a centre parting and braid your hair on both sides using the French braid technique. Continue braiding till you reach the nape area and secure it with rubber bands. Open up the braids a little bit and spray finishing spray for hold.
‘Tie a high pony and secure it with a rubber band. Put some loose pieces for a messy effect and finish by spraying a shine hairspray.’
Centre-parted wavy hair:
Spray a prepping product on the roots, lengths and ends to give thickness and volume. Blast dry the hair so that the product is worked into the hair. Use a tong and curl the ends using big vertical sections. Open up the curls and use a hairspray for hold and shine.
Low side bun:
Use volumising spray on the lengths and ends for body and texture. Work the product into the hair with a brush and dryer. Take a side parting and tie your hair into a low ponytail at the nape area and secure it with a rubber band. Use a curling tong and tong the hair that is in the ponytail to create some movement. Twist the hair into a low bun and pin it up with bobby pins. Pull out a few strands and finish by applying a hairspray for added shine.
Two top knots:
Apply a smoothing cream on your lengths and ends for a soft and smooth texture. Take a centre parting and divide the hair into two equal parts. Tie two high ponytails of both sides of the parting and secure them with rubber bands. Twist the hair in the ponytail and wrap it around to look like a top knot. Secure it with pins. Repeat the same on both sides.
To achieve the messy ponytail, apply a texturising spray to the lengths and end. Tie a high pony and secure it with a rubber band. Put some loose pieces for a messy effect and finish by spraying a shine hairspray.
