The gajra has made a huge comeback onto the fashion scene and it's the best time to try this desi style

With the wedding season just around the corner, it's time to get ready for some desi parties. All you need are your traditional attire, some must-have desi jewellery and a simple gajra!

Yes, this year has certainly been favourable to this one hair accessory with many including yummy mummies Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and even Madhuri Dixit-Nene sporting it with aplomb. But they were not the only ones to favour the gajra.

Bollywood's very own fashionista Sonam Kapoor also donned many traditional looks with the gajra.

So to make things easier about which is the most popular gajra look you must try this year, we have our favourite top three styles that we are sure you are going to love because they can be done in less than 5 minutes.

#1 Half-moon

One of the simplest and cutest gajra hairstyle has to be the half-moon. This style allows you to flaunt your updo as well adds a dash of tradition, thanks to the flowers. Take a cue from fashionista Sonam Kapoor, who showed us how to do the half-moon gajra.

All you need to do is tie your hair in a bun (add braids if you have the time or if you like them) and pin just half a gajra below the bun using small invisible bobby pins. You can also add it over the bun, but by doing so, you will hide any artistry you may have done with your hair.

#2 Classic round

This is one style that most Indian mums prefer since it gives them a more rounded and heavy-haired look. If you have thin hair or your bun hasn't turned out as neat as you would have liked, then a classic round gajra style should be your go-to.

Take a cue from how Sonam has tied her long locks in a very simple bun and added the gajra around it. There is no artistry needed to pull this off. In fact, it's perhaps the simplest style you can flaunt. But not to forget, it's also one of the most favoured and looks good on everybody.

This is a great style if you want the focus on the classic braids or a fishtail that you may have tried. All you need to do is take each mogra flower and use it separately, adding it wherever you like across your hairstyle.

Take a cue from how Sonam has so meticulously and beautifully used the gajra flowers across her hairstyle. What this basically does is that it keeps the focus on the hairstyle and on the braids while still maintaining a dash of tradition, thanks to the flowers.
