5 Navratri Hairstyles For Long Hair


There’s so much you can do with your hair — from sky-high buns to low-hanging ponytails, nothing is off-limits for you. Ahead — navratri hairstyles for long hair. 


  1. Braids To Impress The Aunties

Braid to Impress The Aunties | Garba Hairstyles 

Here’s a navratri special hairstyle. Pull your hair into a ponytail, and secure it with a transparent hair-tie. Go on to accessorise the ponytail with a chain or necklace of your choice. You can secure the accessory with a u-pin. Divide your hair into two sections, and start making a fishtail braid with a golden thread. Take bigger sections, and alternate them with the golden thread. Once you reach the base, cover the end with another golden thread. Pull at some sections to make the braid look voluminous and tousled, and pluck out some face-framing chunks to conclude this look.

Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Onion & Moringa Serum

Looking for a serum? If your frizz is abstaining you from styling your hair the way you want, this cocktail is perfect for massaging it into submission. Formulated with Onion, Moringa, and Argan Oil, this elixir reinstates the lushness and lustre of your tresses instantly; while protecting you from heat-induced damage, and restoring their silky-smooth avatar. And it’s suitable for all types of hair. 

  1. Side-Swept Bangs To Sweep Everyone Off Their Feet


Side Swept Bangs | Navratri Special Hairstyles

Disha’s side-swept bangs are doing all the talking — and we’re listening. If you identify with this aesthetic, all you need to do is add some waves to your hair with a flat-iron to recreate her look. Twist each section around the barrel of the iron, and glide it through the heat-styler before doing the same for the rest of your hair. Run some volume-inducing spray through the mane to further play into the definition and movement of the waves. Conclude by settling your bangs with a few drops of an anti-frizz serum. 


Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Cacao Coconut & Coffee Shampoo

Recharge your hair by indulging in this superfoods-charged shampoo. Infused with coffee, coconut and cacao — it moisturises the hair intensely, treats dandruff and frizz, improves circulation for accelerated growth of hair and adds volume and strength without weighing your mane down.

  1. Twisted Tendrils For The Old Soul In You

Twisted Tendrils | Garba Dress Hairstyles

Begin with a parting down the centre. Pull all of your hair back into a low-hanging ponytail, and secure it with an elastic. Twist the hair around the elastic — the base of the bun — and once the tail-end of the ponytail has reached the bottom, just pull the ends back out through the middle of the wrap. You can tuck in the rest of the length sprouting out of the ‘do with bobby or spin-pins to neaten the look. Pull out some tendrils from the front, and frame the sides of your face with them. 


Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Mangosteen & Avocado Hair Mask

A conditioner cannot do the job of a hair mask, and that’s why investing in this hair-care product is an essential part of any thoughtful hair-care regimen. This mask is infused with superfoods like avocado as well as mangosteen to nourish and repair dry and damaged hair. Enriched with the goodness of Vitamin B5 to reinstate the long-lost lustre of your tresses, it retains their natural moisture balance too. 

  1. A Maang Tikka To Play Up The Magic


Add Maang Tikka to Navratri Hairstyles for Long Hair

Talk about low-effort and high-glam. Part your hair down the middle before adding the softest waves to the ends of your hair. Pull it all back into a low-hanging ‘do secured with an elastic — making sure you’re maintaining the centre-part all along. Here’s where the magic happens. Just place a white pearl-encrusted maang-tikka on the forehead, and you’ve elevated your look in seconds. Such a pretty garba hairstyle.


Use: St. Botanica Moroccan Argan Hair Conditioner

 St. Botanica Moroccan Argan Hair Conditioner

Loaded with potent ingredients like Moroccan Argan oil, olive oil, DHT Blockers, wheat protein, shea butter, Vitamin E, & B3 — this conditioner doesn't just condition the hair.

  1. A Sky-Skimming Bun To Reach New Heights

Sky Skimming Bun | Navratri Hairstyle

If your bangs are styled like curtains, you’ve gotta take cues from this look. I’m enlisting one of Kim K’s hairstylist's hacks for the bun. Part your hair down the centre. Separate your hair into equally-thick halves, and pull both sections into two sky-high ponytails — but right before the last loop, pull the hair into a bun instead of a ponytail. Now — cross both buns over, and pin them into place. Spritz some hairspray all over to hold the bun and bangs together. 


Use: St. Botanica Pro Keratin & Argan Oil Smooth Therapy Hair Serum

 St. Botanica Pro Keratin & Argan Oil Smooth Therapy Hair Serum

If your bangs are feeling all over the place, this hair serum is what you need. Just a few drops, and you're well on your way to softer, shinier, and smoother hair. Breakage? What's that? Tangles? Never heard of 'em. Damage? Oh, so reversible. Grab this hair-loving formula RN.

5 Navratri Hairstyles For Short Hair


If you think you cannot do much with your short hair, you’re mistaken. Here’s proof — the best navratri hairstyles for short hair.


  1. A Middle Part Bob To Balance Out The Traditionality Of It All

Bob to Balance | Navratri Hairstyles for Short Hair

Looking for something as simple as it is elegant? This centre-parted bob as displayed by Ananya Panday is one such hairstyle that doesn’t require much work. If you’re already sporting a bob, just curl the ends of your hair, and run a shine hairspray through your hair to capture Panday’s glossy aesthetic. 


Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Cacao Coconut & Coffee Shampoo

Recharge your hair by indulging in this superfoods-charged shampoo. Infused with coffee, coconut and cacao — it moisturises the hair intensely, treats dandruff and frizz, improves circulation for accelerated growth of hair and adds volume and strength without weighing your mane down. 


  1. A Slick Side-Part For When You’re Feeling 

Slick Side | Garba Hairstyle

Begin with a deep side-part. If your hair is wavy or curly, you might want to flat-iron them for this look. It’s time to section your hair into chunks. Use one clip to secure the side-part; one to hold down the other side; and one to twist the back of your hair into a bun. Go on to unclip the side-part, and run a pomade or gel through it. Brush through it to spread the product evenly, and tuck it behind the ear — and repeat on the other side. Unravel the bun, and flat-iron the hair once again to eliminate bumps before massaging the formula in. Set it all in with a hairspray. That’s it. 


MyGlamm Superfoods Passion Fruit & Rosemary Shampoo

If your hair is damaged from all the heat-styling tools you’ve been subjecting it to, this formula’s restorative properties can come to the rescue. Infused with Passion Fruit and Rosemary, pro-vitamin B5, this shampoo returns your tresses to their lustrous avatar while preventing breakage and strengthening your hair from the roots.


  1. A Casual Bun For When You’re In A Rush

Casual Bun | Navrtari Special Hairstyle

Last-minute mishaps happen — this has gotta be your backup (or even your first choice). Pull your hair back into a low-hanging ponytail, and secure it with an elastic. Twist the ponytail around the base until you’ve reached the ends of your hair — which you can secure with u-pins and bobby pins.


Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Onion & Moringa Shampoo

Ah — ‘onions’ don’t induce the nicest reaction, do they? Especially when they’re infused in hair-care products. This shampoo is here to prove you wrong. Formulated to control hair-fall, it stimulates the roots and enhances the health of your hair while cleansing your scalp of build-up and residue. It also strengthens your strands and makes them silky-smooth. If you’re unsure about the smell, the infusion of Moringa in the elixir lends a sweet, rejuvenating scent to your hair that masks the scent of onions. 

  1. Pinned-Back Hair For The Delicate Darling In You 

Pinned-Back Hair | Garba Hairstyle

This one’s pretty easy to execute on short hair. Start with a middle-part. Pick up two chunks of hair lying on either side of the part, and pin them back with bobby pins. Let your hair flow freely. Add a maang-tikka to the equation if you want to up the drama.


Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Onion & Moringa Hair Oil

You might like the idea of a champi; but what’s the point of it if you’re not using the right oil? Here is a hair oil that excels at making your hair stronger, promoting growth, reducing breakage or fall, and restoring the scalp’s natural moisture over time. 

  1. A Rose-Encrusted Bun If You Love Your Flowers Too Much

Rose Encrusted Bun | Navratri Special Hairstyle

Do exactly what you’d do in the previous hairstyle, and tuck in roses through the base of the bun to capture this look. Pluck out some face-framing chunks, and use a maang-tikka to further play into the softness of the aesthetic. 


Use: Organic Harvest Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
