Hair: Worn out looks were in. In hairstyles, there were ponytails and the omnipresent fringes or the side bangs and hence the side parting. Frizzy hair was also in. Hair colour in general was not popular and the most people went for were the red streaks.

Make-Up: Smoky eyes and nude lip colour was in. Thicker eyebrows with highlighted cheeks did the trick. Eyeliners were back with a bang and a new lip colour— orange lit up the face.

Nails: As always, French manicure was in. The new chip on the nail were swarovski crystals or the nail art. With Rihanna and Gwen Steffani flaunting their blue nail paints, many talons were seen in the cool hue.

Facials: Oxygen facials for dehydrated skin, lightening facial for dark and dull skin and diamond facials for a glowing skin. Dr Blossom Kochhar is an aromatherapist, aesthetician and hair stylist.

Bollywood beauties and hunks that doubled up as trendsetters:

Priyanka Chopra's sleek hairstyle in Dostana — Poker straight hair with lots of layers and side bangs.
Mugdha Godse’s funky look in Fashion — Red streaks on black hair looked ultra chic.

Arjun Rampal’s locks in Rock On — The hunk carried the long hair look really well.
Purab Kohli’s goatee in Rock On again — The cute-boy-meets-naughty-guy look was relatable.
Aamir Khan’s eight pack abs and the hairstyle in Ghajini — Young boys are still hitting the salon for a Ghajini haircut and the eight pack abs are a hit not just with gym enthusiasts but with other B-town actors too.
