What is common with hairdo of today’s women and the hairdo of the stars such as Sharmila Tagore, Asha Parekh, Mala Sinha and Babita during the ‘60sand 70s? The Bouffant. That style is back and is slowly making its way from the ramp to social gatherings and family dos. Bouffant or the hairstyle of the 60s which was catapulted to fame by Jacqueline Kennedy is now resurfacing on the fashion scene in India. Here, we provide you with simple and chic bouffant hairstyles.
This is an eternal favourite in summers, especially if you’re always on the go. Comb your hair neatly and bunch it up at the top of your head. Roll all your hair into a tight bun and secure tightly with an elastic. Since this look is quite simple, make sure you add a dash of colour on your face and wear some simple accessories like Anushka Sharma, otherwise it may look a bit dowdy.
Playful and cool yet stylish, the side bun (loose, messy or voluminous) is increasingly becoming popular over the traditional stiff up do hairstyle. For a night out, evening party or any special occasion, you can try this fun bun hairstyle. It does not really require any professional skills to achieve this hairstyle. In this look, the hair has to be given a side part and a part of the forehead remains covered with hair as we see the pretty Deepika Padukone with her messy side bun here. For a voluminous side bun, natural flowers may be added to perk up the look
Amp up your updo by adding some volume with a front poof — or a pompadour — that will charge your hairstyle with a chic, edgy vibe and take your look from simple to eye-catching. This style transforms both casual updo day styles and fancier evening-wear sweeps. It can be created quite effortlessly and complements casual wear as well as looks classy and chic when worn with a cocktail dress or a pretty gown. This bun style can even be your saviour on a bad hair day and would suit any type of hair texture. Moreover, it can be transformed into a prom look by adding beautiful hair accessories. Don this hairstyle with elan like Priyanka Chopra.
Want some more twists than just doing a plain bun? The ballerina bun is a great way to add some style and fun for your short hair. Comb your hair and gather it from both ends just above your hair. Your hair should now be partitioned into an upper and a lower section. Take the upper portion to make a tight messy bun at the top back. Now make small sections from the hair that’s left over at the bottom back. Twist them up and pin them at the bottom of your tight bun like Sonam Kapoor.
