The revival in hair colour and styles has added chutzpah to the flourishing fashion circuits. Enhance your sartorial sensibilities with these fun and quirky hair styles.

A hair style is not tantamount to chopped bangs and layered tresses. The first and foremost thing to remember before sporting a hair style is to follow basic hair care. Change over to a more sporty hair colour. Your hair has to be in tip-top shape to be able to handle these trend setting hair styles.

The Twisted Knot

All red carpet events are showcasing celebrities sporting this hair style. How to get this look? Simply wash and blow dry your hair.

Add some hair mousse and twist your hair up in a chic, no nonsense knot.

Back Combing

A bad hair day can add volume to insipid locks. Wash and blow dry your hair and make sure to apply some leave-in hair conditioner to reduce frizz. Let the hair air-dry.

De-tangle them with your fingers and brush them out with a wide toothed comb. Now using a fine toothed comb, simply back comb the upper portion of your hair. Pin them up. Leave your bottom tresses loose.

Braids And Buns

Braided hair and neat low lying buns look fun and quirky. Braid two sections of your hair at the back. Now pull up your hair, showcasing the braids in a neat, textured look. Accessorize the braid with fresh flowers, floral clips and bands.

A chignon or a low bun looks extremely dapper. For a more sophisticated look, add plenty of hair gel or spray and pull back your hair tightly. Not even a single strand should be out of place. Kareena  Kapoor is often seen sporting this style.

The trendy hair colours are warm, toasty browns and deep reds. Colour and accessorize your hair along with these hair styles for a glamourous and sophisticated look.
