Rock these Chinese hairstyles
1. Double bun
This hairstyle never fails to impress. It may look cute and playful, but wear it together with a traditional Chinese garb, and it becomes an elegant hairstyle. If you don’t know how to put your hair in a double bun, check out space buns and take it from there.
2. Halo braid
Editor’s tip: Let your updo last long by finishing with TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray. This product also helps smooth out frizz, so you get a polished hairstyle.
3. High bun
There are a couple of ways to put your hair in a high bun. You can try the ballerina bun, wherein you put your hair in a high ponytail, wrap your hair around its base, and secure the bun with bobby pins. You can also try a pageant-like updo—you make a bigger bun by adding volume to your hair. Having trouble with these bun ideas? Use a hair donut.
Editor’s tip: Apply a dollop of TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse on your hair to make it feel thicker. The mousse also helps keep frizz at bay for a smoother hairstyle.
4. Long hair with blunt bangs
Let your long hair down on Chinese New Year, especially if you have kept it soft and healthy the whole lunar year. Then, blow dry your bangs down and straight so they maintain their shape. You can also change your fringe a bit by trying see-through bangs or wispy bangs.
Editor’s tip: Wash your hair with Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo to make it soft and easy to style. With five flower essences, this product can also keep your hair smelling fresh all day.
5. Neat blow out
If you want to keep your ‘do simple, you can go for a blow out hairstyle to add bounce and volume. Create a deep side part to help make your hair look thicker. A few spritzes of sea salt spray can also help add texture and body to your down ‘do.
Wear your best clothes, put your hair in one of these beautiful Chinese hairstyles, and say hello to the Year of the Earth Pig. You may not know what’s in store for you this lunar year, but the most important thing is that you greet the new year full of positivity and hope. Kung Hei Fat Choi!
