Celebrating the strong bond between brothers and sisters, Raksha Bandhan surely holds a special place in every siblings’ heart. Honouring this bond, usually a sister ties a rakhi on her brother’s wrist to symbolise the love, protection, and care they share for each other. While traditionally this festival is celebrated by brothers and sisters, nowadays, it is gender bound, and even extends to sisters alone rejoicing in the relationship that they share. Raksha Bandhan usually entails rituals, followed by a fun day with the family. While the celebration is a little low-key in the grand scale of festivities, it is one that shouldn’t be ignored either—especially when it comes to outfits, makeup, and hair. You probably have the first two figured out, but to make your life easier let’s unveil the latter for you. Here are some cute, cool, and easy Raksha Bandhan hairstyles you can choose from to celebrate the special day.
