How to add head section in a page that has layout template

Tags: css,,,

Problem :

I need add specific css file for my page "Index.cshtml" that has layout "_BasicLayout.cshtml".

In ASP.NET WebForms I could do it with ContentPlaceHolder like this:

Master Page:

    <Link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="common.css" />
    <ContentPlaceHolder ID="Head" />

Child Page (Layout = Master Page):

<asp:Content ContentPlaceHolderID="Head">
     <Link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="specific.css" />

Solution :

In your Layout page put something like this:

@RenderSection("AdditionalStyles", required: false)

Then in your child pages where you want to use it, you can do:

@section AdditionalStyles
