BANGALORE: Heads literally turned for a second glance and remained riveted at some of the gorgeous hairstyles being created to showcase the looks that will be hot this year. Hair stylists Shalika Kunwar and Sebastian Tan set the ramp on fire with hairstyles that didn’t come across as outrageous, but rather something that the women and men of today would gladly sport.
The show was a display of the summer/monsoon look as well as the celebration of a year of Oomph Hair & Beauty Salon and Academy. This display of what is to come this year in terms of hairstyles for the contemporary Indian professional was showcased at a fashion show held at the Royal Orchid last week.
The wine and cheese evening was compered by Avril Quadros, celebrity MC as well as performer, who regaled the audience. Shalika, director, Oomph Hair & Beauty Salon and Academy, and Sebastian Tan, from Kuala Lumpur and ambassador of the Schwarzkopf brand in the region, created live on stage, the hairstyles that will be in this year.
“The hairstyles that will go on to be popular this year are those that will suit the urban Indian. They are variable, soft, incorporate movement and are basically those that Indian clients would love to wear,” Shalika said. She maintained that the inspiration for these hairstyles comes from regular people; mothers, business women, those at managerial levels and the professionals.
“Hairstyles of the season are not the Rogue and Rebel that were done till today, they are much more subtle,” the stylist added.
The costumes on the models were done by Astara with Anu Nagappa and Susan Fernandes at the helm. While the accessories were presented by Mood Swings, the jewelry line by Benazir.
Speaking on the occasion, international stylist Sebastian noted, “In order for the fashion industry to progress, the future lies in the present.”
