As the festive season is almost here, most of us also want to make heads turn and look IG ready. What better way than taking cues from Alia and learning some of her glam hairstyles! 

Double Boxer Braids

Girls with short hair often think that braids and ponytails are not for them. But, this hairstyle seems so perfect for girls with short, and even with long locks. While Alia flaunted her double boxer braids at the promotion of her film, you can try this for any simple event. Sport this on stunning western wears to ooze the oomph! 

Steps 

  • Start by combing your hair and making sure there are no tangles. 
  • Split your hair into two equal sections. 
  • Begin working on one side. You have to make an inverted fishtail braid. 
  • Take a small hair strand from the left side, cross it under, and then merge with the right strand. 
  • After making your first stitch, again take a piece from the right strand, cross it under, then merge with the left stand. 
  • Continue making more stitches following the same procedure. Stop once you reach the nape of your neck. 
  • Tie off the braid with an elastic band and hide it by wrapping the hair around the band. 
  • Repeat the same on the other side to make the braid. Once done, gently brush the hair to make it look fuller.

Steps

  • Then make section off the top half in order to make the third section.
  • Now, gather one of the top sections and start making a simple braid. Try going slightly upward and then bring the braid down. 
  • Also, keep the braid as close to the inner corner of the middle part as possible. Once done, tie it off the braid temporarily. 
  • Repeat the same on the other side and secure with a hair elastic. 
  • Use a bobby pin to secure the curve to create the right crest of the heart.
  • Lastly, bring the ends together to finish off the bottom shape of the heart and tie them together.
