A long braid with a back puff
Long braids with back puff looks perfect when coupled with ethnic wear. Part your hairs at the middle and collect the hairs at the crown to create the puff. Finally complete the braid with the length of the hairs. If your hairs are not that long, you can easily use some falsies for the braid and get the look.
Bun with a back puff
Buns are the other most popular hairstyle that you can easily get this Navratri and look your feminine best. There can be several variations in buns. You can either go for a simple bun at the back of the head, or a roll bun, doughnut bun or any other patterns. Always make sure that your bun is well fixed.
