The run­way is an in­flu­encer of what rules the style roost. And, it isn’t only de­signer cre­ations that im­pact trends — mod­els too add to them. The new gen­er­a­tion of male mod­els sport­ing long hair on and off the run­way are mak­ing a mark.

“Long hair makes these mod­els stand out. It helps with the kind of at­ti­tude we want on the ramp. A lot of times, it de­pends on the con­cept, but it does add to the sexy fac­tor,” says de­signer Dhruv Vaish. From Mun (man buns) to even dread­locks — these mod­els say, hair is a big part of their ca­reer.

“I wanted to try out longer hair, so I just kept grow­ing it. The ap­pre­ci­a­tion served as en­cour­age­ment,” says model Rahi Chadda. Model Amit Ran­jan, who has been sport­ing long hair since 2006, says it gave him work. “Back in the day, I was the only male model sport­ing long locks on the ramp and it caught at­ten­tion. Now, the trend is big,” says Ran­jan. Model

Mo­hit Nan­dal’s long hair adds to his work. “In my case, I grew it and it worked for me. Long hair looks amaz­ing on a man if he knows how to pull it off,” he says.
