They've already worked for some of the best designers of the country such as Tarun Tahiliani, J.J. Valaya, Rohit Bal, Rina Dhaka and Shahab Durazi. And now fashion consultant and stylist Yatan Ahluwalia, and his associate, make up artist and hair stylist Jojo, are all geared up to make their mark at the Lakme India Fashion Week, as they have been designated the official stylists for the show.
"This time, at the LIFW, short and messy hair are going to be real hot," predicts Yatan. Emphasis will be on texture and uneven layering with a lot of wisp and movement. Jojo feels, "Rolls and hair tied up in buns will make a fashion statement. While structured hair are completely dated, straight hair will have to be well shaped, with not a strand out of place."
Back home Jojo and Yatan's mantra is to focus on individuality and not get carried away by fashion fads. Says Jojo, "Go for a cut that'll suit your face and bone structure. But the style must have some movement and the locks will have to look dishevelled."
Violets and pinks will be the colours for your lustrous locks this season. Yatan advises, "Blondes, honey and copper have given way to subtle shades that are very in your face but at the same time lend that funky look."
Jojo and Yatan have some cool tips on how to keep your style in place for as long as you want it that way. Says Jojo, "Try out wax spray from Scwarzkopf for styling while Texit from L'Oreal can be used to lend texture and volume. If you're suffering from a bad hair day try the no sweat anti-frizz gloss serum from Osif."
Make up trend forecasts focus on coloured mouths. Yatan suggests tones in pink, tinged with a little purple for that sexy pout. "If you can't do without a lip liner then it's best to use the same shade as your lipper." For the eyes a dual tone of shadow will lend a dramatic touch.
"But for the day it's best to stick to a no-make up look," advises Jojo.
