Front Braids

This look first became common when Mahira Khan sported it in the drama Sadqay Tumhare. This was the first time that Mahira Khan experimented with her hairstyle a little and the credit for that goes to her stylist as well. This was one look that became an instant hit because partially tying the hair from the front also gives a certain level of comfort since the hair stays in place and does not fall on the face. Mahira Khan sported this look with another braid at the back and sometimes with partially tied hair.

Later on, this look was followed by many different celebrities and gradually became a favorite. Ayeza Khan has also been seen in this hairstyle many times in different projects. For her upcoming project, she has been seen sporting this hairstyle with a little bit of variation.

Ushna Shah gave a different spin to this hairstyle by keeping the braids pretty simple and only taking a few strands of hair from the front to make these braids. Unlike Ayeza Khan, Ushna Shah did not add volume to her hair.

Sarah Khan’s stylist added variation to this hairstyle by replacing a single braid in the front with two and also defined the crease. This hairstyle is funkier and gives Sarah Khan a younger look. This has to be the latest variation to the hairstyle which shows that there are so many different ways to style this look.

Naimal Khawar also sported this hairstyle in drama serial Ana with a more neatly done side French braid and Naimal parted her hair from the side, unlike all these other actresses who parted their hair from the middle. It depends on an individual which parting they feel suits them more and they can carry this look with parting from any side.

Voluminous Wavy Hair

Gone are the days when dead straight hair alone was in fashion. Celebrity hairstyles lately clearly suggest that the new fashion trend is big hair with waves.

Twist and Pin

This has to be the easiest yet one of the most popular hairstyles among celebrities. Twisting the hair from the front and pinning it on the sides gives the hair a neat look immediately. This hairstyle has been sported by different famous actresses in their photo shoots and the dramas. The look it gives is similar to the one given by front braids but the big difference is that pulling off the twist is so much easier than making the braids.

This is another hairstyle that can be styled in many different ways – from twisting the hair only from one side to twisting it from both sides. This particular hairstyle is not only popular among actresses but also their fans.

Sleek Back Bun

Pakistani actresses have proved that sometimes a sleek back bun with a middle parting is the best option for a formal look. Many Pakistani actresses have been seen sporting this look in talk shows, dramas, and even functions. Hania Aamir always looks pretty with her hair tied. The middle parting suits her a lot too.

When sporting this hairstyle with a more formal look, these actresses relied on accessories. Sarah Khan used beautiful red rose garlands to make her look more festive.

The great thing about the sleek bun is that you don’t need to have long hair to sport this look. Actresses like Iqra Aziz and Saheefa Jabbar have pulled off this look by replacing the bun with a ponytail or a hair accessory.

Saheefa Jabbar

The sleek bun looks both elegant and stylish, as is evident from these pictures. It is definitely another one of those hairstyles which can easily be done by many girls.

The trick is to ensure that the bun is not too high or too low and the parting is done really neatly otherwise it won’t look as sleek as it is supposed to look.

Stylish Short Hairdos

Short hair, don’t care is a phrase that has very often been used by actresses who decide to get their hair cut shorter than most people would want them to since people most often want to see female actresses sporting long hair.


Well, these female celebrities have surely proven that it is possible to sport all the latest hairdos with short lengths as well as long as you invest some time and put in the effort. Saheefa Jabbar was criticized a lot because of her short length but guess what she knows how to carry it in the most ultra-modern way possible.


Some of these actresses are often seen sporting hair extensions in dramas but in reality, they give great ideas to girls with short hair who want to experiment with different hairstyles. Nausheen Shah is a style icon who is never afraid to experiment. She looks great in this short hairstyle.

The Bob haircut is a favorite among celebrities and even though it usually comes in different lengths, it doesn’t go beyond the shoulders but that does not stop these actresses from going all out and flaunting their short hair. Iqra Aziz always adds more volume and texture to her short hair by adding waves or soft curls.

Sana Javed recently got her hair cut in a shorter length. She is definitely someone who has been sporting many stylish hairdos ever since she got her hair length shortened. Those girls out there who have short hair can definitely draw some inspiration from Sana’s hairstyles which can easily be done by using some of the most basic hair straighteners.
