Binge watching “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” might have been a delight but decoding Kim Kardashian’s summer hairstyles with celebrity hairstylist Vaishakhi Haria is way more interesting.
We have been often taking cues from Kim Kardashian, for her chic fashion style (especially, bikinis) and let’s face it, we all have drooled a bit over that perfect beach body. Apart from being a fashion maven, the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star has proven time and again that she can slay any hairstyle and colour. From rocking a strawberry blonde mane to going all “bleached”, Kim has been the perfect summer girl with some cool and iconic hairstyles.
Luxe locks and Kim Kardashain is what we can think of. Known for giving a luxury twist to literally everything, Kim has been no short of a diva when it comes to her hairstyles. We might be at home, blending “once again” into that WFH routine but our hairstyles don’t have to be boring. Ain’t that right?
Trust us, you will love these cool hairstyles. And to make sure that you all are able to rock them too with proper guidance and inspiration, we came together with hairstylist Vaishakhi Haria, director at Splash : The Salon and Mantastic Barbers to share all the rightful deets about these hairstyles, summer styling and much more.
The Sleek Ponytail
An absolute favourite!
“This one is a tough one to get. The hair has to be held with a tight grip. Application of a good amount of gel is very important. It needs to be applied to the hairline to get a cleaner look. Moreover, adding a bungee band works best to hold the ponytail high,” suggests celebrity hairstylist Vaishakhi Haria, director at Splash : The Salon and Mantastic Barbers.
The School Girl
In a mood to spice things up? School girl hairstyles never actually went out of the sight and with Kim Kardashian adding a sexy edge to the look, it’s time to try our hands at it.
Vaishakhi Haria tells us the easiest way to recreate it.
“Pull out 2 sections from ear-to-ear. Apply a wet look gel from the roots up to three inches of your hair. Hold the hair and tie the ponytails. Leave the strands around the hairline for some styling,” she says.
The Rope Braid
Braiding might look bland to some, but pals, zoom in closer and check out the deets please! We are sure that this will be your go-to summer hairstyle this year.
Hairstyles need time to turn out that good, so have some patience with this one.
“Tie a ponytail of the entire hair first. Split the ponytail in 2 parts and then twist both the sections in the same direction. As you twist the sections, you have to intertwine them in the opposite direction and keep braiding till the ends,” explains Haria.
The Top Knot
With a WFH schedule, buns are a regular hairstyle (trust us, we love them too). Let’s add a pinch of the Kim K style to it.
“This one is a classic and never goes out of style. Take a centre parting and push all the hair back. Twist them together into a bun, wrap it up and accessorise it for a stunning look,” states Haria.
Summer Styling Tips With Celebrity Hairstylist Vaishakhi Haria
“Personally, my favourite is the rope braid. It looks super sexy and we can also make a bun out of the braid which also looks glamorous,” she says.
We might have sidelined hair accessories for a long time now, thinking that they might look “extra”.
“Hair accessories are the best style statement. With minimalistic clothing, hair accessories add the oomph factor. My favourites are bandanas, hairbands and floral scrunchies,” adds Haria.
“For smooth and lustrous hair, it is important to use the right professional home care products and get professional treatments done for your hair at least once in 4-6 weeks. Choosing the right products for your hair type is essential. Remember, your ₹100 shampoo cannot take care of your coloured hair worth ₹10,000,” she further adds.
We hope this might have turned out to be an interesting piece for you.
