Sonakshi Sinha - Bob All The Way!

Sonakshi Sinha seems to have finally bid adieu to her long locks and added some zing by saying a hello to Long Bobs!

The Dabangg actress chopped off her trademark long hair, which she sported for years, and we must say so far she has managed to carry them off pretty well.

In one of her first appearances, Sona went for the chic straight hair that not only complimented her attire but also accentuated her features and newly chopped hair.

While at promotional events, the actress opted for a more casual clothing and finished the look by adding some messiness to her almost straight tresses. The fringe swept sideways, being the hero here!

And at a recent awards night, Sonakshi made that hairdo with the Red Carpet Gown. Going for some curls with a side parting, she made the look work splendidly well.

Glad to see the actress experimenting with her Lob and trying out as much as she can.

All we can say is, 'May The Force Be With You!'

Top 10 Boho - Chic Hairdos

Boho seems to be in demand these days and with newer hairdos making its way, here are a few that can be worn both for casual as well as formal dos.

Check it out!

The Classic French Braid

So the classic French Braid has been a favorite of many, but what makes it super Boho? The touch of messiness done with much finesse here.

Wear it on a casual day and you are sorted my friend!

The Red indian Braid

The Red Indian Braid consist of three braids. Great when you have extensions or coloured hair. Those who don't, can add a twist by adding some coloured extensions or perhaps even coloured thread.

Boho Hair-Band

This may take just two minutes and is really stylish too.

Just take a chunky segment from a little below the crown section, braid it, take it across your forehead and you're done!

Messy Knot

This may seem messy but has been a favorite at formal events too.

Segment your hair the way you do it for the braid, start by slightly tucking them from the side sections and knot them. Put some Bobby Pins to let it stay.

Crown Braid

This hairdo is literally a french braid tied diagonally. 

Classy for formal and casual dos.

Chain Braid

Start off with a diagonal french braid and go on till you form a 'U'. 

This hairdo may take sometime to get done. Add some hairspray to let it stay.

Braid Chignon

From the center parts braid your hair loose from the sides and tuck with bobby pins. The remaining hair can be tied in a loose chignon secured with some more pins.

Spray enough hairspray for it tp stay.

Bobby Pin Hairdo

Coming down to some creative hairdos, this has been quite a hit.

Take some colourful bob pins and tuck the side sections of your hair with 5 to 10 of them. 

If you're planning this for a formal event, you can opt for the glittery or studded bob pins too.

Ribboned Fishtail Braid

Along with the segments of your hair that need to be braided add some colourful ribbons or even threads if you'd like. Start off just the way you a neat fishtail braid.

The colours would make for a fancy look, totally chic.

Elegant bun With Mini Braids

Perfect for an event like a wedding, this can be quite easy actually.

Just segment the crown section and tie a braid. Place it a cross path fashion.

Add a little puff to the loosened tressses by backcoming and finish it the look by tying a bun.

Hairspray to let it stay.

Trendy Hair Colours - Winter 2014

If you're really looking forward to unique hair colour this season, however confusion has struck your mind, we've got some options for you!

Here are a few hair colours that rocked the Red Carpet, Ramps and more!

Pumpkin Spice

With Halloween here, this hair colour is just perfect for the fest. 

A touch of deep orange with gold undertones like Rachel McAdams here just amalgamates so well. 

Quite the thing, we'd say!

Auburn Tint

This hair colour is a favorite among many and ideal for those with dark to wheatish skin tones. 

The intense tone shones well and is rather apt for winter too. 

Plum Rubes

Wana try quirky with a dash of chic, this hair colour is for you!

Perfect for neutral skin tones. For the ones with a warmer tone, you can go a little light on the Plum shade.

Black Current

Those who have jet black hair, perhaps this would be best for you.

Super stylish, trendy and a total head turner!

Hazelnut Truffle

One of the favorites of all times and simple yet stylish!

The wooden hint with the hazelnut glaze gleams through, making it just so desirable. 

Jadey Juniper

Wana try something just so out of the box, this perhaps would be a great idea. 

For more cooler tones this would be great. 

You can also experiment by either adding a bit more of the green tones in the mix or more of the blue.

Red Carpet Hairdos for Bobs

A formal do and nothing to do to that bob?

Here are a few ideas that may work great for you!

Tucked Braid

Tie a braid the 'french plait' way leaving the fringes loose. Style the fringe with slight rough waves and hairspray the entire section for it to stay like Kate Mara's.

Tousled Waves

Waves tousled mid-way like Naomi Watts at this Red Carpet looks rather chic and trendy. Perfect for a more semi-formal evening!

Side Swept Curls

Slightly undone side swept curls like Natalie Portman's here can add a dash of style to your lob/bob.

Or you can also go for the specific side swept curls like Dianna Agron's here.

Side Swept Bob

Jennifer Lawrence's Side Swept Bob can make for quite the Retro Hollywood-isque look.

Straight, curls or waves... all you need is a hair styler, hairspray and you're good to go! So what's going to be your bob hairdo this evening?

PARIS FASHION WEEK 2014 - The Comeback Trends

Paris Fashion Week 2014 saw some great ensembles, A-listers and trends making a comeback and these hairdos sure were hard to miss.

Center Parts

Center Parts are back and how!
This runway saw models donning the long hair look with center parts, which worked well with most designs.

Wear it either the poker straight or the natural waves way, a sure shot winner at this fashion week, at least!

Hair Accessories

With the Boho-Chic headbands still being much in demand, a little more of a variety would help.

This specific one with starfishes and seashells aptly placed with the braid seen at the PFW gives you scope of experimentation and choice of hair accessory galore.

Textured Tails

What may have looked like untamed tresses to some, turned out to be a trendy hairdo here.

The textured tails has an array of options that can be merged with like crimped tresses with straightened tails or straightened tresses with crimped tails, gelled sleek hairdo with waves at the end, etc. etc.


And they're back once again!

Wear them either poker straight or with light waves, loosened tresses or the pony way... Bangs can go with anything and everything.

Those who don't wish to chop them off can also opt for the extensions too. A great option for those who are always up for an experimentation with their hair.

Sonam Kapoor's Khoobsurat Look Decoded!

Chic, Trendy, Hollywood-isque and easy to do!

Sonam Kapoor may have appeared in a varied style in her latest film Khoobsurat, but her fancy tresses caught our eyes every time she walked, danced, turned, swirled or even spoke!

So here are the top 3 looks that we loved in the film and here's how you can get the look:

The Standard and Simple Updo!

Sonam is spotted donning this hairdo throughout the film and is quite easy to achieve. All you need is some hot iron curler and a really good blow dryer. 

Step 1: Segment your hair, making it easier while curling them.

Step 2: Blow dry the top segments of your hair till the segments look straight enough. 

Step 3: With the Curling Iron, curl the lower segments of your hair.

Take a decent amount and keep it in the hot iron till the time they have a twirl effect AND NOT LITERAL CURLS.

TIP: Try taking a decent amount to curl, so as to avoid small spiral curls. 

Step 4: Once you are done with the curling bit, for the final touch, take the segments near your forehead/crown section and with the Curling Iron, curl a large portion for the soft swirl effect.

To secure the look use hairspray.

Go Red Carpet - Hollywood-isque!

In this poster the vintage hairdo is a complete knock-out! The hero being the front tucked portions of the hair.

The chic-sleek look requires Serum, Fine Toothed Comb, Bobby Pins and Hairspray.

Step 1: Apply the Serum as required, make a side partition from the front to the middle segment of your hair with a Fine Toothed Comb.

Step 2: Twirl and tuck the front-right section and secure with a Bobby Pin in two places - one a few inches away from the forehead and the other behind the ears. (Like in the poster)

Step 3: The remaining left front portion can be swept back and secured with a Bobby Pin behind the ears.

TIP: You can let it be slightly puffed up and then secure it with the pins in case you don't want the sheer-sleek look.

Step 4: Take the loosened tresses and tie it into to chignon, securing them with Bobby Pins.

Hairspray the look to let them stay.

Twirled Pony

This simple hairstyle can easily be done in 15 minutes!

All you need is a Rubberband and a Curling Iron.

Step 1: Tie your hair in a mid leveled Ponytail.

Step 2: With the Curling Iron, lightly curl the ends of your Pony. Keep in mind not to create spiral or the tong like look.

Secure with a hairspray.

Office, party or a formal do... These 'Khoobsurat' inspired hairstyles will surely add the oomph.

DIY: Deepika Padukone's Wispy Ponytail

At the promotional events for Deepika Padukone's recently released Finding Fanny, the actress was seen sporting a rather fancy hairdo. Though sticking to her standard Ponytail which she teamed with formal as well as casual attires, the interesting twist is what we liked!

So how can you get this look, just by following these simple steps.

All you need is a good fine tooth comb and a good enough rubberband.

Step 1: Tie a Ponytail, with the crown section of your hair left slightly loose.

Step 2: For the wispy look, try to gently create the effect with the back of the comb by pulling out a few strands only. Try not to overdo it, otherwise it may look too messed up.

Step 3: In case the look is too messed try to settle it dolwn by patting it down.

Step 4: Spray on some hairspray to let the chic-tress-look stay.

Team it up with a casual dress, tees and shorts or even formal wear. The modish look will add some edge and turn up the sexy factor by a notch!
