Get shorty

Did you know your latest haircut isn’t haute enough unless it follows the latest ‘Spring/ Summer’ trends?

Jean Claude Biguine has announced a set of hairstyles for the Spring/Summer season.

Yes, you heard right, hairstyles have seasons too (in case you didn’t already know that) but aren’t as religiously followed as wardrobe trends. Nevertheless, Carole Robequin, head of training, India, for the French beauty house said that short hairstyles are apt for the summers whereas longer styles are sought after during winters.

“The Urban Chic collection is dominated by hairstyles. It is modern and trendy and can be adapted for all. Things were very different till two years back but they are changing rapidly now in India,” says Robequin, adding that Biguine introduces new Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter styles every six months. But isn’t six months too short a time period to alternate between seasonal haircuts?

“If you go very short, then yes, you have to wait at least for a year or more before you can alternate,” admits Robequin. “Otherwise, I propose a makeover,” she adds with a chuckle. Tell Robequin that even though short hair trends rule the new style set, Indian women are known to have a penchant for lustrous long hair and she comes clean: “Yes, I know that. Indian women even like voluminous hair. But short hair can be addictive. I’ve recommended it to quite a few clients and most of them have stuck to it,” she says. However, a bob is as short as most women in Mumbai are ready to snip their tresses to.

“A bob is the easiest to maintain, especially if you want to grow your hair later,” says Robequin. The bob is back in demand these days and Robequin suspects it has something to do with leading ladies in Hindi movies sporting them. “But a majority are moving out of the movie star look and head to a stylist for advise instead,” she asserts.
