16 Asian and Indian Hairstyles That Are All Sorts of Gorgeous
These gorgeous cuts and styles make the most of Asian hair textures.
To replicate Priyanka's delightfully messy style, start with wavy hair—if you've got natural bends, you can encourage them with mousse. Otherwise, use a curling iron, saysShereen Doucette, an educator on Eufora's global team. After, make a side part and braid a small section of hair about two inches down the part. Then begin French-braiding hair down, pulling in extra hair just from the side closest to the hairline.
Indian hair can get a bit thin past the shoulders, explains Doucette, but a wavy asymmetrical cut and adding highlights on the undersides can give the illusion of extra thickness.
Straight hair is perfect for long, brow-skimming bangs—no hours of blow-drying to get them to lay just so. Keep in mind, too, that if your hair is both straight and thick it can be "very resistant to holding a curl or wave," says Doucette. In other words, don't try to make it do what it doesn't want to, and embrace its naturally straight style.
Padma knows how to master a curl because she knows how her hair works. Indian hair tends to have a natural wave, meaning even when straightened it will hold a curl better than naturally straight hair, explains Doucette. To get this look, blow-dry or flat iron hair straight, then curl the ends inward using an inch-barrel curling iron or rollers.
Make the most of what you've got, like Zhang elegantly does here. Gently tease hair for extra height, pull into a ponytail, then braid for a more substantial bun.
Straight hair works well with an A-line, shoulder-length cut, says Doucette. Part hair to one side for an asymmetrical look, or down the center for a more even, neutral effect.
Bobs are a classic hairstyle, though they can look a bit dated if you're not careful. South Korean actress Bae Doona makes it modern with a rounded shape, and by adding side-swept bangs with an unfussy part in the center.
Glossy black hair looks great when slicked back. To get the look, blow dry hair using a round brush, styling hair back in the direction you want it. Follow it up with a strong-hold gel to keep everything in place.
"It's a myth that all Asian people have fine and straight hair," says Doucette. Yes, women of Chinese and Japanese descent will often have extremely fine, straight strands. But women from Thailand, Korea or the Phillippines, for example, can have several different textures and even wavy or coarse hair. Jamie embraces her thick and naturally wavy texture here, rather than piling on products to force it straight. Smart move.
Constance's look is full of body, yet looks super relaxed, making it perfect for date night. Run a 3/4-inch barrel curling iron through pieces of shoulder-length hair, and switch directions with every pass. Run your fingers through strands and give it a good tousle so the curls don't look too formulaic.
A chin-length crop looks great on finer hair, says Doucette. Give it a side part with a dramatic swoop over the forehead to keep the look from being too generic.
Medium-to-fine straight hair, like Lucy's, needs a bit of help if drama is what you're after. Instead of pulling hair into a simple pony, Doucette suggests teasing the section of hair around the crown to add dimension.
