A cut you recommend for upcoming season?
With Indian hair, for the upcoming season, it has to be about integral movement within the shape of the hair. Long hair is the staple length for most women. To evolve this season, we’re working on cuts that bring out natural movement in the hair—scooping layers to keep the shape soft with lots of curve. This innovative technique emulates the fashion houses’ current trend of cutting fabric on the bias, creating a truly feminine shape.
Any cut or trend you think Indian women should try?
Midi-cuts are one of the hottest cuts around. Indian women tend to have low hairlines, so mid-length cuts are really flattering. Try styling it with a boho finish rather than anything too sleek or Bollywood-inspired.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
For me, inspiration comes from a variety of places; from cool things on social media to fashion. I love seeing things being done differently.
In your view, is there any change in trends in India?
The changing trends in India are definitely leaning towards colour. Women want to go for lighter shades to experiment, and add texture to their hair. Balayage and ombré are great techniques to achieve this. But for them to work perfectly, we have to change the mindset about onelength haircuts!
