Jagadhatri Puja Special Hair Style Tips from Glamazon

By  |  1 Comment


While it is Durga Puja that ushers in a time of mad festive shopping and experimenting with new looks, in some parts of Bengal the Jagadhatri Puja works up the same magic. Speaking with Krishna Banerjee of Glamazon, Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent got to know about a few hair style and makeup tips to look glamorous during the special days of the grand Puja.

Simple look: For long hair, sport a middle parting with hair on one side and a big Bindi while making the Puja arrangements. One can also do a middle parting and add a twist to the locks to give an ethnic touch to the look.

Long curly hair with middle parting with half the hair in front can also work wonders for many women. The traditional Indian Braid is a famous Bengali hair style and easy to do it yourself. Long curly side open hair with black eye makeup is perfect for a Bengali look. Very few Bengali women have straight hair, as most of them have curly hair. To bring a change go straight, keep it simple and wear a big bindi if you are donning a traditional look.

Women wear their best outfit to look perfect during Puja days and you can accessorize your heavy sari with a tight bun and decorate it with flowers.


Hair Bands – Fast becoming a must-have accessory to dress up plain hair, these can work their charm on any length. Embellished with stones, sequins and even corsages, they instantly doll up any look. Wear it old-school style if you have bangs or a fringe, or across your forehead for a more laidback vibe.
Wear it with a sweet summer dress or a maxi skirt or dress.

The Classy Pull Back

After you’ve shampooed and blow dried your hair, take a section from the front and pin it down with a bobby pin. Pull the rest of your hair back into a high ponytail (not the kind you’d wear in school on sport’s day, a little lower than that) and let a transparent rubber band hold it tight. Take the pin off the front of your hair and back-comb that section till it gathers some volume and texture. Pull it to the back to create some height and pin it down, a little ahead of your ponytail. Take the rest of the hair from the pins, have it go around the transparent band and pin it at the base of your pony tail so that it’s hidden. This refreshing take on the ponytail is perfect for both the office as well as a day out. We love that it keeps the hair off our face with the high front balancing out the sleek pony tail. Quite a simple way to add a dressy element to a regular hairdo, we think!

The Braided Bun
After you’ve freshly shampooed and conditioned your hair, use the Toni&Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray to add texture. Textured hair is easier to work with especially if you’re doing hairdos with braids and the like. Start by parting your hair down the middle. Identify three sections of hair on either side of your middle parting and start plaiting your hair down the front all the way till you reach the end of you hair. Secure it with transparent rubber bands. Take the braid on the right side, have it go along your hairline and secure it behind your left ear with bobby pins. Repeat the same thing with the left braid, only this time have it go under the right braid as you pin it behind your right ear. Remember to pin it down tight so that if you look at the back of your head in a mirror it should look like a unified hairdo.If you have longer hair, you can twist your braid towards the end, roll it up and then pin it from the base.
A totally different take on the regular braids we see everywhere, this one’s easy to do and can go with most Indian outfits, including a sari.

The Twisted Ponytail
After you’ve washed, conditioned and combed your hair, divide your hair into different sections along the front. With each section, pull your hair back, and begin twisting it along the length and secure it at the back. Repeat this for all the sections and pin them down with bobby pins. Tie the rest of your hair into a ponytail and secure it with a transparent rubber band. Take a thin section of the ponytail, wrap it over the rubber band and tuck it back under it.


The Double Braid
Wash, condition and blow dry your hair. Part it the way you normally would and divide your hair into three sections the way you would if you were to braid your hair. For the first few rounds, plait your hair the regular way. Next, begin double braiding. To double braid, overlay one section of hair over the other. Take the section of hair on the top, braid it like you would normally and close it with a rubber band. Next, take the hair from the lower section and have it go into the section on top (the V that’s formed by the braid knot.) Then go back to knotting the top section, securing it with a rubber band, and getting the lower section to the top through the braid. Continue doing this till you reach the end of the braid.

Deck yourself in style and make heads turn.

    Iron is one of the minerals that you will need to implement into your diet if you want to have strong, flexible hair. Make sure that you eat certain cereals and pasta frequently to prevent iron deficiency and create fortification for your scalp. This will aid in preventing hair thinning.
