Actress Priyanka Chopra may have tried it to get rid of boredom, but her cropped new look is a hit with youngsters. Back in fashion, the classic bob cut looks chic and glamorous. A skilled hairstylist can help one achieve this free-flowing, bouncy look with ease.
"Normally, short hairstyles that add width to the sides suit people with oval and long faces but it would suit a heart-shaped face if the hairstyle plays down the chin. A square-shaped face person can try the classic bob with the ends coming forward and covering the jaw," says hair expert Shahnaz Husain. But if you have a heavy back or a cervical bump, then avoid the cut as it’ll make the back portion look heavier.
A skilled hairdresser can make special additions to the hairstyle to compliment any face shape. For example, fringes or wisps matching the face shape can add oodles of glamour to a simple style.
This look is easy to maintain and takes years off your face. "Funky streaks in spiky red, fuchsia, purple and aqua blue also look great," says Aashmeen Munjaal, makeup and hair designer, Empire of Makeovers. Diamond streaks, temporary or permanent, are the most luxurious accessory this season.
While colour adds glamour, a change of parting gives a complete new look. Try hair bands in metallic and diamond hues for a casual look. "Those who have wavy or curly hair can maintain a slightly tousled look to appear trendy. A diamante barrette can be worn on a formal or gala evening. Putting up one side of the hair with hair accessories can also look attractive," says Husain.
