Indian actress hairstyles are all about delicate oomph in 2019. There’s something about flowers that imbibes a vintage charm to the ensemble. Celebs like Kangana Ranaut and Sonam Kapoor were seen donning jasmine over their low bun creating a culturally enriched outlook. This hairstyle is a great idea for weddings if you’re having a bad hair day.
Whereas Jahnavi Kapoor’s look was just the right pick for a whimsical garden wedding set up. It’s also a great idea for a college farewell or engagement party. You can also play around with flowers to create some vacation looks like Jacqueline Fernandez. These will be great for your Instagram pics!
Milkmaid braids are such a summer friendly hairstyle! This trend has been around for the past few seasons and is getting more love this time around, especially as one of the Indian actress hairstyles. Celebrities in the west have been teaming this look for a bohemian and romantic look. Jacqueline has us crushing over her sporty look in this mesh top and double braids. These braids are a perf idea for your airport look, or while traveling. Master them and these can be your new go-to college hairstyle!
The hairstyle of the entertainment mogul – Kim K is having a comeback. I’m sure you all know what we’re talking about – the sleek, high polytail. This hairstyle is chic, timeless and glam. Straighten your hair, wrap it in a high pony and finish off with some shine spray.
We saw Priyanka styling this with a feminine white gown for one of her Cannes looks. Sonam Kapoor was also seen in this high pony with a Victorian inspired dress. This hairstyle is a great idea when you’re looking for a glam look for a special event, like your cousin’s wedding, a fashion show or an exhibition opening.
And we can’t get over Deepika’s extremely high ponytail. It’s a bit much, but it would be a nice idea to try a less high version of this sleek ponytail for a party!
Yes, that’s right! Personally, I love flaunting my naturally wavy hair in my nearly every photo shoot. But these Bollywood ladies are proving that salon-waves can be way more glam. Well, obviously! Duh! We saw these “sleek waves” on Deepika Padukone and Anushka Sharma, and I love this hairstyle for a wedding/ reception party or glam event.
In this photo-shoot for Harper’s Bazaar, Alia Bhatt shows that her style isn’t always that of a girl-next-door – she can pull off the red-carpet-worthy looks whenever she wants! Here she’s rocking big bouncy waves created using large rollers, which we love and featured in our retro photo-shoot too.
The 80s disco hair trend is back and we are absolutely loving it! Make a noteworthy statement in these loud and big curls. You can have tight or loose curls depending on which style channels your inner Beyonce! 😉
This is one of the Indian actress hairstyles that’s definitely giving us the chic retro Hollywood vibes! Some of the leading ladies from the industry were seen donning this look for photo-shoots, Cannes looks and easy-going casual looks. This is a great style for a casual day out with friends or a date. Looking for a post-breakup makeover anyone?

The chignon or messy bun has been a sleek affair for parties and red carpets. But in 2019, Indian actress hairstyles also include the messy version of it for galas and photo-shoots. This look would be perfect for your anniversary dinner, a date or as a quick party look.
Braided Pony or Half-Up
Your basic braid is not so basic anymore. This fuss free style is gaining a ton of popularity this season. Both Kangana and Sonam Kapoor were seen pairing western styles juxtaposed with Indian traditional hairstyles to give a modern ethnic spin to the ensemble. You can opt for a side part crown braid or pulled back along with a chignon. One of the Indian actress hairstyles is also a twisty crown braid with a half up style. This could be a good idea for an office hairstyle, a family function or festival like Teej or Rakhi.
Who other than Deepika to take inspiration from for accessories? For her Cannes 2019 looks, she sported lots of glam hairstyle looks, as you’re seeing in this article. So extra! The above look has her in a head-scarf with a beautiful large rose on it. And the below one has an embellished headband in a retro poufy hairstyle, made with hair extensions.
Straight Pulled Back Hair
Straight hair is still very in, if the Bollywood actresses’ Instagram pics are any evidence. Sophisticated, clean and edgy are just the right words to describe this style. Evolving from poker straight to embracing the natural straight texture – the defined center parted hair is just the one to opt for to go with all your uber-chic looks.
It’s one of the top Indian actress hairstyles again! From pant suits like Alia to jacket dresses like Sara Ali Khan or to even hit the red carpet like Priyanka – the straight hair is the perfect addition to all. Simply straighten your hair and get a neat parting. Settle the flyways with a robust styling gel to keep the look in place for long hours. Perfect hairstyle for your college parties or photo-shoots.
Wavy High Ponytail
Your everyday ponytail just got more glamorous. This look is one of the Indian actress hairstyles that can take you from a sassy casual next door girl to glam fashionista with just a few tweaks. Volume is the name of the game from the rear while keeping it neatly pulled back on the front face. You can wear this high ponytail sleek, puffy or messy – what’s your take on it? This style will be perfect for office parties, your friend or colleague’s wedding or a family function.
