Correct us if the choti isn’t one of the most unique and double-take inducing hairdo?!
Isn’t it the best –and perhaps only-low maintenance way to tidily tame your unruly monsoon hair?!
But aren’t saadi guutts downright BORING?!
For this Eid, designers at the GENERATION HQ got some beauty inspiration from our very own Nighat , and have come up with 5 head-swivelling braided hair dos that you can create easily on your own, to pull off with kurtas, suits or even tops from our new Eid Collections.
Ps. while you’re at it, don’t forget to desify things up with our new GENERATION parandas available across stores nationwide!
1.The trusty corn-row braid
Dinal’s favourite monsoon look is the side cornrows, with the rest of the hair left open. A tuck behind the ear with a dash of motia (haye) lends the just the right nazakat to the look that is best for people who cherish the born-with-it texture of their hair.

2.The charmante French braid big-tails
Time to transform your favourite childhood style into a chic, adult trend: Two French braids, a line apart, running along the crown. This is a cute and youthful hairdo that works whether you’re rocking a lob like Hafsa or longer, flowing locks like Mahira Khan.

3.The braided taaj
Unleash the Roman goddess within you with a French-braid that runs up the back of your head perfected with a braided joora, just like Ifrah. If you have a prominent jawline, let this look accentuate it-and don’t forget to perfect with some statement jewellery.

4.The braid me, braid 3
A desi rendition of Kim Kardashian’s favourite look: reverse French braids running on the crown and intersecting to make a grand, lambi choti. Jannat loves how this looks weaves her lovely locks tautly yet beautifully.

5. The jambo micro-braids
Zarmina slicks her micro box braids down with a side part and a low, rolled up bun. Yes, please. Very Cleopatra-meets-Nighat vibes.
