This is not the first time that Dhoni has popularised a new hairstyle. His long locks in the initial days of his cricketing career were quite a hit among his young fans.
Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf once liked Dhoni’s long locks and advised him to keep the hairdo as it suited his personality.
“Dhoni’s new haircut is not new. It is there in our catalogue since the Fifa World Cup of 2012 though there were hardly any takers,” said Samshad Ali, owner of
Unique Beauty Parlour for men, located in a busy business area of Ranchi.
Shrishti Jha, manager of the city’s premier Kaya Beauty Salon, said hairstylists on Monday served no fewer than 10 young boys and men opting for the new Dhoni hairdo.
