A good haircut is the best way to beat monsoon distress
You know that monsoon's here when every day is a bad hair day. Humidity plays havoc with your locks, with results varying from limp, dull hair to frizz that no amount of serum or soothing down can control. The 100 brushstrokes before bedtime won't work either! One thing that could go a long way, though, is an easy, low-maintenance hairstyle.
Spikes still rule for boys, while the fringe, though not very practical right now, refuses to be blown away.
Going back to the age-old adage, hairstylist Sylvie says, “The style must be according to the person's shape and personality.”
Among college students, peer group is a decisive factor in determining what shape the tresses take.
With the row of fashion weeks, et al, Delhi might be big on the country's fashion radar, but the fashion industry is still upstaged by Bollywood when it comes to determining street styles. Not for many the box bobs, reverse graduations and choppy layers.
Sylvie adds, “Laymen are more in touch with Bollywood actors than the fashion industry. Aamir Khan's Gajini hairstyle became a trend and before that it was Salman Khan in Tere Naam, and girls try to get Priyanka Chopra's look. When it comes to the fashion world, the influence is there but only for the people who are following it closely.”
This season, short is in for both men and women
According to hairstylist Rishi Kumar of Trendz Unisex, Noida, “People go in for shorter lengths in the monsoon as we tend to lose hair this season.”
Women prefer layering and straight hair with flicks. Multi-layering is also popular.
