Curly & Wavy Hairstyle Ideas for Festivals!!

As the Indian Festive season is coming up with Navaratri/Durga Pooja being the first, I am sharing few quick hairstyles. I do wear these styles with both Ethnic and Modern looks.


Above pic is where I am thinking: “Goshhh…what will my hair look like at the end if this!!”


So start with any day hair.. 1, 2, 3 etc etc. and all these hairstyles look pretty.

You can accessorize all of these with beautiful hair accessories. Or even flowers. Hair accessories will totally take these hairstyles to the next level.

If you try any of these simple yet pretty hairstyles, do not forget to tag me in your pics!! 🙂


Braided half up half down:

  1.  Part your hair to one side.
  2. Pick a curl at the part and divide it into 3.
  3. Braid it into usual 3 part braid.
  4. Braid toward the back.
  5. Similarly braid at rhe other side
  6. Pin both braids at the back of your head.
  7. Add shiny or studded pins to add the festive look




 Side ponytail

  1. At the end of the last hairstyle, simply gather all hair towards on side.
  2. And put into a low ponytail
  3. Your curls will look popping and the braid will enhance the look



Messy braid.

  1. Instead of the ponytail,  you can even braid the hair and make it messier by pulling out few loose hair here and there.
  2. As shown here with a 3-strand messy braid.
  3. this with flowers or fancy bun pins at every turn looks gorgeous!!


Messy Curly Side Braid


Messy bun:

  1. Pull your hair into a low ponytail at the nape by pulling your the hair into the hair tie once
  2. At the 2nd turn, pull the hair only half way through.
  3. So that it forms a loose loop with ends hanging loose. (as shown in the pic)
  4. Pick up the loose ends and pin them around the bun onto the hair above the hair tie.
  5. make sure to spread the loop and pin randomly along the hair above the hair tie.
  6. Feel free to use many many manyyyy pins





Twisted half-up half-down:

  1. Just like the first hairstyle, instead of the 3-strand braids, you can take two strands and twist them around. I like to add more hair from my hairline at every twist.
  2. Pin at the back (use fancy studded or golden or colorful hair pins to add some sparkle)
  3. You can let your hair open or can make a side pony or messy braid or back ponytail





In all the above styles ,  you can add more twists or more braids. That takes the whole look one notch up!! Don’t forget to accessorize with gorgeous hair ties, hair bands or bejeweled clips or pins!! 🙂

  1. Hi,
    I’m chithu. Your blog helped me in lot ways. I’m completely happy with the hairwash experience mentioned in your blog. But i have some doubts in how to maintain the curly hair in daily basis. Will you apply hair oil or gel daily? How do you protect your hair during traveling in public transport?(You know about our air polluted environment) So how to maintain it. And how many times should we take hair bath in a week? Should we talk any hair spa? Other than taking a hair bath what and all should we do to protect our hair. Is there any tips to maintain our curly hair daily?

    1. Hey Chithu! I am so happy that the blog has helped you!! 🙂

      for maintaining daily, please read through this post:

      while travellin in public transport, I use satin or silk scarf or cloth to over my hair. If you check out my blog, I have one story saved under “Hacks” showing how I have wrapped up my hair. This is my instagram handle:

      Please read through and feel free to ask further doubts. 🙂 <3

Would love to hear from you. Please do leave a comment.
