Play up with hair for parties

New Delhi, Nov 23 (IANS) Go for two top knots or a French braid instead of tying your hair in a boring bun 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:

* French braid:

– 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.

* 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.

* Messy ponytail:

– 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.
