New Delhi, Aug 20 (IANS) Remember how Bollywood actresses Asha Parekh and Mumtaz immortalised the bouffant and the bird's nest? With a little help from an expert, you too can don those hairdos.

Najeeb Ur Rehman, PPS Manager at Schwarzkopf Professional India, offers few tips to get the looks:

Asha Parekh's bouffant: The hairstyle requires hair attachment. Leave the front panel of hair, use rest of the hair to make a high ponytail, roll all your natural hair around ponytail, fix an artificial hair attachment in order to give height. Then back comb front panel, take out a few bangs of hair to frame the face. The hairstyle requires a lot of hair spray as after every step we need to spray and fix the hair.

Mumtaz's birds' nest: Blow dry the hair with a round brush. Take hot rollers and let them cool down. Back comb entire hair taking horizontal sections from the nape to the crown and then sides in a similar fashion. Once this is done, neatly pick up a circle or an oval from crown and pin it, this section will create a lot of height. The hairstyle is good for round and square faces, short height ladies. Hair spray will be required to create the hairdo.

Dimple Kapadia's blow-out: Apply serum on damp hair, blow dry hair with medium round brush, from back and sides. Take a square section and blow dry it back. It would be great if you use rollers especially on top crown, then use a hair spray to complete the look.
