Prachi Desai will be seen playing the role of a hairstylist in her upcoming film, I, Me Aur Main. To prepare for her part, the young actor trained extensively in hairstyling. And now, for a promotional event in Delhi and Bengaluru, she will use what she learnt to test. Interestingly, the last actor who was involved in a similar promotional event was Aamir Khan. For Ghajini (2005), he had given buzz cuts to the staff of a city multiplex.

Excited about the event, Prachi says, “Yes, I will be styling a few volunteers’ hair. I will also give them some make-up tips.” Having recently cut a customer’s hair at a city salon successfully, the actor is a lot more confident now. “I was at b:blunt (Khar). The customer wanted a makeover and since she had long curly hair, I suggested she cut it a bit shorter and get bangs. I even gave her a fringe.”
Besides taking up lessons in hair styling, Prachi also spent time with make-up artistes to understand and observe their body language. “I play a colourful character in the film. To look the part, I wore bright chunky jewellery and just one earring. My look is relatable as well as edgy; something young girls can easily adopt,” she says.
