She started out as a super-cute child actor, and Oh My Friend star Hansika Motwani has grown up to become one of the most beautiful faces of Tollywood. The gorgeous actor, who has been a part of several big-ticket films, started her career with Puri Jagannadh’s Telugu film Desamuduru, opposite Allu Arjun. Hansika is not just known for her acting skills, but also for her superb sense of style and her signature beach waves, tousled to perfection.
Her recent series of Instagram posts, with tousled, effortless waves, have got us all hooked. This wavy hairstyle, which Hansika is rocking, works perfectly both at the beach as well as at that Saturday night party. Want to sport this hairstyle too? The good news is, you needn’t travel to the seaside to let the sun and the sea work that perfect magic on your hair. You can easily get this chic and sexy look a la Hansika at the comfort of your home without shelling out a bomb at the salon. All you need are the right products which will also leave your hair looking healthy and nourished.
And it’s not really time consuming. All it will take you to get this popular summer look is a curling iron, beach wave sprays and some hair-twisting skills. Look how lovely Hansika is looking in those loose curls and a summery floral top? Start by prepping your hair right. Get hold of a firm mousse, and apply it on not-so-clean hair. Apply the mousse slightly away from the roots of your hair and comb your hair to ensure it spreads evenly.
One of the simplest ways to do it is separate your hair into sections, braid and then secure. If you want tighter beach waves, go for multiple braids, if you want bigger and looser waves, tie your hair up in two braids. Ideally do this before going to bed so that in the morning you can then untie your hair, shake out the curls with the help of your fingers and secure the look with the help of a hairspray.
However, if you want a more glam version, you will need a sea salt spray, mousse and curling tongs. Wash your hair, but don’t use too much conditioner. Towel dry, and spritz some sea salt spray all over the ends. Allow your hair to dry if you want a natural, wavy look. Else, blow dry your hair roughly. Now part your hair into sections and wrap them around the heated curling tong. Hold for three to five seconds. Keep curling the entire hair. Once done, either let the tight curls remain or run your fingers through your hair for a softer look. Add some hairspray and Voila! You are all set to step out in style just like Hansika.
