Gorgeous Ways To Style A Gajra This Onam Ft. Alia Bhatt, Sonam Kapoor, And More

The season of India’s biggest festivals is just around the corner. From Rakshabandhan to Onam, this month is all about celebrating the many flavours of India. And yes, Onam 2023 is almost here. The 10-day-long harvest festival of Kerala will be celebrated on August 31. Many Malayali households will dress up and decorate their homes to mark the auspicious festival. From silk sarees and heirloom gold jewellery, Malayali women will, especially style gajras. And if you’re looking to style these mogra strings in more than one way, take style cues from our favourite celebrities. 

Sonam Kapoor’s Braid

For her mehendi function, Kapoor styled a gajra into a long braid. This unique spin on the mogra string hairstyle depicted Kapoor’s love for bold and statement accessories. Sonam’s gajra-laden hairstyle can be easily replicated with a silk saree for this special occasion. 

Alia Bhatt Keeping It Simple

The simplest way to style a gajra, is to go for a low-tied hair bun. Like actress Alia Bhatt, you can decorate your hair with a clean girl aesthetic, by tying a simple bun and accentuating the look with a simple string of gajra around it. 

Kangana Ranaut Going Traditional 

Kangana Ranaut’s idea of styling a gajra is about going overboard. This South-Indian spin on the mogra hairstyle can take the unconventional route, with an open-ended bunch of flowers. Like Ranaut, you can decorate your open hair with a loosely tied string of gajra, for a fuller effect. 

Shraddha Kapoor Going Minimal

For those who do not enjoy wearing gajras, but would love to style one for a special occasion. Like Shraddha Kapoor, you can bridge the gap between traditional and contemporary fashion, with a fusion half bun. As styled by Shraddha, seal your hair into a half bun, and decorate the topmost part with a small gajra band.

Tania Shroff’s Top Knot

For a sexy snatched look, you can follow Tania Shroff’s unique hairdo. For actress Athiya Shetty’s wedding, Shroff channelled a neat look by tying a ponytail braid and decorating the same with a gajra band, right on the top. You can recreate a similar look by adding a string of mogras to a simple ponytail or tying it around your braid, combined with a silk saree.
