Ankita Chaturvedi Gives You 3 Easy Hairstyles for Mehendi
Hi everyone! It’s the wedding season and we’re all looking for new looks to try this season. I’ve partnered with BBLUNT to create really easy, beginner-friendly looks for lighter functions like mehendi. Whether you’re the bride yourself or a bridesmaid (or even just a guest!), I’m sure you’ll be able to pull off these looks with great ease. Being a novice when it comes to hair myself, BBLUNT products help make hair styling simpler and are very easy to use!
Look 1 : Braided Bun
For the first look, I created a braided bun. I started by using the BBLUNT Intense Moisture Hair Serum which is a clear serum that adds nourishment to the hair and makes it more manageable. It also contains oils of Jojoba, Avocado and Argan which make the hair softer and smoother. You can buy this hair serum online and also use it as a heat protectant before styling.
Next, I created a centre parting for my hair and proceeded to add some dimension to my hair using the BBLUNT One Night Stand Temporary Hair Colour in Bronze to a few strands of hair. This gives a dramatic splash of temporary colour that you can easily wash off the next day. You can buy these temporary hair colours online and I would highly recommend the shades Bronze and Copper for the festive season.
Next, create a simple three-strand braid in your hair and twist it around to create a bun. Use bobby pins to secure the bun.
For the finishing touch, use a few spritzes of BBLUNT Spotlight Hair Polish for instant shine. I’ve also noticed that it works like a low-hold hairspray that keeps styles in place without the crunchy feel. It’s a must-have finishing product! Your braided bun is now ready!
Look 2 : Messy Side Braid
For look 2, I’ve created a messy side braid which looks gorgeous for mehendi functions. It’s similar to a regular braid, just a little more bohemian. I started by adding some beautiful colour to my hair using the BBLUNT One Night Stand Temporary Hair Colour in Copper. This colour adds a beautiful metallic highlight to the hair and is easy to wash off the next day. It looks particularly beautiful in a braid once you interlace the hair and gives you wonderful highlights without spending hours at the salon colouring your hair.
In the next step. I pulled the hair over one shoulder and proceeded to create a simple three- strand braid. Make sure you’re not braiding too tightly, leave it a little loose. Once the end has been secured, use your fingers to pull the braid a little looser, giving it a thicker look.
Finish off with a few spritzes of the BBLUNT Spotlight Hair Polish for Instant Shine and a soft hold, keeping your braid in place. Your beautiful bohemian braid is ready!
Happy wedding season!
