Mornings are that time of day with one the largest to-do list and the shortest amount of time. Sometimes your beauty routine is the last thing you want to deal with. The hustle is real. But a lack of time doesn’t have to mean an absence of style. Here are the easiest and most chic, not to mention fastest hairstyles to brighten for your 9 to 5 hours by Sawmya Raghunandan, Technical Trainer -John Paul Mitchell Systems India.

This game-changing hairstyle, works when your bangs aren’t cooperating and you absolutely have no time to heat style your hair. French braid or two-strand twist your hairs from one temple to the other side, then secure the end with a hair pin or small elastic near the ear on the other side. Use a touch of Paul Mitchell’s Freeze and Shine Spray to hold the style in place if you’re prone to slippage or fly-a ways and step out in style.


Scarf Braid

This runway-ready style looks so incredibly chic and it’s surprisingly easy to recreate. Secure a low ponytail with one end of a silk scarf (you can use a hair elastic underneath for extra security, especially if your hair is particularly slippery). Split the ponytail into two sections on either side of the remaining tail of the scarf and start braiding the scarf with the two sections of hair until you reach the bottom. When about an inch or two of scarf remains, tie it around the hair that’s left. You can leave the braid hanging loose or twist the scarf braid around itself to secure it in a low bun.

Criss Cross Half up Hair

Take the top part of your hair; tease, twist and secure with bobby pins at the top of your head. Take the left section over your ear and pull towards the top of your head and pin in place. Take the right part of your hair and pin it below the left part. There you are ready to conquer with a quick and elegant hairdo!

Twisted Bangs

Some things just never go out of fashion; twisted bangs are one of them. They are your saviours on your bad hair days. Twist a small section of bangs backwards and pin them on the other side of your head. Take another section from directly under the first one, then twist and pin it over the first twist.

Narakasura's death is celebrated as 'Naraka Chaturdashi' popularly known as Choti Diwali

Diwali is arguably one of the most auspicious and celebrated holidays in South Asia. It is celebrated over the span of five days, where the third is considered most important and known as Diwali. During Diwali people come together to light, lamps, and diyas, savour sweet delicacies and pray to the lord. The day has various origin stories with the main them being the victory of good over evil. While the North celebrates the return of Lord Rama and Devi Sita to Ayodhya, the South rejoices in the victory of Lord Krishna and his consort Satyabhama over evil Narakasura.

Narakasura- The great mythical demon King

Naraka or Narakasur was the son of Bhudevi (Goddess Earth) and fathered either by the Varaha incarnation of Vishnu or Hiranyaksha. He grew to be a powerful demon king and became the legendary progenitor of all three dynasties of Pragjyotisha-Kamarupa, and the founding ruler of the legendary Bhauma dynasty of Pragjyotisha.

Safety-pins with charms

For all the great inventions that we have at hand, it is amazing how we keep going back to the safety pin every single time to fix everything. Be it tears in our clothes, to fix our broken things, to clean our teeth and nails when toothpicks are unavailable, to accessorize our clothes, and of course, as an integral part of the Indian saree. Safety pins are a must-have in our homes. But how did they come about at all?

The safety pin was invented at a time when brooches existed. They were used by the Greeks and Romans quite extensively. A man named Walter Hunt picked up a piece of brass and coiled it into the safety pin we know today. He did it just to pay off his debt. He even sold the patent rights of this seemingly insignificant invention just so that his debtors would leave him alone.

Sesame oil bath is also called ennai kuliyal in Tamil

In South India, Deepavali marks the end of the monsoon and heralds the start of winter. The festival is usually observed in the weeks following heavy rain, and just before the first cold spell in the peninsula. The light and laughter that comes with the almost week-long celebration are certainly warm to the bones, but there is still a tradition that the South Indians follow to ease their transition from humidity to the cold.

Just before the main festival, the family bathes in sesame oil. This tradition is called 'yellu yennai snaana' in Kannada, or 'ennai kuliyal' in Tamil, which translates to 'sesame oil bath'. The eldest member of the family applies three drops of heated oil on each member's head. They must massage this oil into their hair and body. The oil is allowed to soak in for a while, anywhere between twenty minutes to an hour. After this, they must wash with warm water before sunrise.
