Some Essential Holi Tips Because… Holi Hai!
We all know how wacky a festival Holi can be. From a water balloon fight to becoming unrecognizable in just an hour's time, Holi is sheer fun and happiness. If you're one of those who just don't get the point of locking yourself indoors on Holi and believe in celebrating a crazy Holi, these essential Holi tips are for you. Let's begin!
- Break the stereotype of wearing old, faded clothes for Holi because you can be comfortable and look chic at the same time at that hot Holi party. You can choose from a variety of outfits – from a cool pair of hot pants, a flowery dress or a hassle-free saree. Remember to incorporate a white element in your ensemble; you know white is the best canvas for all those pretty colours ;)
- Colour block your outfit by teaming up your white with bright colours. In fact, white practically looks awesome with anything. So you could complement your white balloon top with pink shorts or a blue flowy skirt.
- Keep the fabric in mind while choosing clothes for Holi. Cotton works best and keeps you comfortable in the heat. Steer clear of fabrics that will cling to your body in case somebody attacks you with a water balloon! Fabrics that turn transparent when wet are a major faux-pas, Holi or no Holi.
Bonus Tip: Ripped jeans are the perfect casual way to dress up for Holi. It's comfy and doesn't show through once you get wet!
- Stay away from heels or shoes and go for more comfy options like a colourful flip-flop. Flip-flops are great for all the running around and also get rid of colour stains easily. Loafers or ballerinas become heavy after they get wet.
- Don't forget to paint your nails in the excitement of Holi. Play with different colours and let your nails depict your celebratory mood ;)
- Buns are the perfect hairdos for Holi. You could choose a braided bun, a top knot bun or a messy sexy chignon depending on the length of your locks.
-Massage your hair with coconut oil beforehand; you would not want the harmful colours to harm you precious tresses.
- A scarf or bandana is your best bet if you wanna keep your hair away from the colours and look uber cool at the same time.
- Post-Holi days are a torture for our hair! Lessen the trauma by applying generous amounts of sunscreen or oil throughout the exposed part of your body before you step out with the gulaal and pichkaris.
- Avoid heat styling your hair for the following few days because your locks are already dry from the colours.
- Keep your makeup quotient low on a day like Holi. Just the basic elements – a blush, kajal, eyeliner, mascara and perfect nude lips – would do the trick. The key is to use waterproof products and we obviously don't need to tell you why!

Disclaimer: Never step out for Holi in expensive clothes and precious accessories. Go street shopping for a white kurti or some junk jewellery. It's less likely that your clothes will see another day :)
