Punjab has been known for its vibrancy for generations. Men and women, both have always loved to get ready before either of them steps a foot outside their house. We have witnessed a sense of bright, colourful, and joyous vibes within the people residing in this region of India.
Parandi has been one such tradition that has been followed for years and has been a part of the Punjabi culture, forwarding generations. It is common to spot young girls and women wearing a parandi at social gatherings like weddings.
A parandi is a type of hair tie that elongates the length of your hair if you need it, leaving behind a trail of colourful tassels. A parandi is found in various colours, usually of a free size and can be tied with your natural hair in form of a braid.
While a parandi may give your outfit a classic Punjabi touch, there are multiple ways you can style yours, just like our beloved Bollywood divas!
Add A Hairstyle To Your Parandi
One of Kareena Kapoor Khan’s most loved movies, Jab We Met had her character, Geet in a Punjabi outfit and we spotted the parandi overruling the outfit to the song ‘Nagada Nagada’ alongside her co-star and then-boyfriend, Shahid Kapoor.
It was the parandi that had everybody’s attention. The actress had a cute hairstyle to add to her look, while always pulling the Sikhni look!
You too can add playful braids to your parandi look and look girly. Adding small clutchers can also give you a great outcome.
Go For Colourful And Contrasting Tassels
One of the most sizzling Bollywood actresses, Jacqueline Fernandez was too spotted acing the ‘Punjab Ki Sikhni’ look at another diva’s wedding, Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding.
It was that event that we scored a new trend for the parandi’s. We could see why Jacqueline would go for contrasting colours when it came to her parandi. She chose to go for a baby pink lehenga while the tassels of her parandi were sky blue.
The contrasting colours made us look twice, maybe even more! We truly believe that colourful colours make you look vibrant and cheerful to the max.
Add Some Hair Accessories To Your Outfit
Popularly known for her appearance in Honey Singh’s song ‘Love Dose’, Urvashi Rauetela has been a fashion icon for many young girls. She has also been a part of the Miss Universe Pageant and had been a panel member at the 2021 Miss Universe.
The Bollywood actress had been spotted wearing a parandi alongside her Swaroski studded sharara suit and truly looked like a ‘pataka’. She teamed her outfit with polki jewellery, adding a mang tikka, which was a pure jewel.
Go For Dewy Makeup
Taking more inspiration from Bollywood, Shilpa Shetty has been an evergreen favourite for our category of fashion. She has the utmost style with pure elegance.
Shilpa Shetty was seen to look fabulous as she was flaunting her parandi at one of the wedding functions of her sister-in-law. Dewy makeup is what makes your skin look radiant and that is what your Punjabi outfit needs! The dewiness in your makeup gives an illusion of healthy skin.
