Chief Minister Aditya Nath Yogi’s uncanny resemblance to Hollywood star Vin Diesel became viral on social networking sites on the day of his swearing-in ceremony. Now, his hair-style is gradually becoming a hot favourite amongst youngsters with many opting for the ‘Yogi’ look.
Hair stylists also feel that it could be this summer’s style statement. While few hoardings of Yogi supporters sporting the same hair style have also come up in the state capital. A website www.hairstylesmake.com has also featured Aditya Nath Yogi in their hairstyle section.
Celebrity stylist Jawed Habib tells HT City, “Yogi is a jogi. His hairstyle and dressing don’t matter to such people. But his fans and those having hair fall problem or are balding could easily borrow this style best known as the ‘Army look.’ With hot and sultry season ahead, this can easily be the best summer statement not just for bald persons but those who like to keep their head cool and look stylish also.”
The style guru calls it a “very cool” look and believes it could help people with thinner mane.
Mohd Gulrez Salman, a saloon owner at Narhi, says two youths have come to him to give them a ‘Yogi-type’ cut. “One of them used to keep a shaven look but this time he asked for machine-cut that gives a rugged cut like the chief minister,” he says.
Actor and rapper Ali Quli Mirza’s photo with Yogi and Vin Diesel attracted huge attention on Internet and What’sApp. “This is really a cool look, which I sported on the advice of a stylist. After Yogi became chief minister a lot of people compared my resemblance with him and said if there is a biopic on him then I can be an ideal candidate to play him. I have a soft corner for Yogi due to yoga connect as I have performed in various yoga shows abroad where music is part of the session.”
Event manager Sawan Mehra too got several comment for his looks. “I got this look inspired by DJ Raghav, a Lucknowite. When Dhoni sported this look I was trolled for that and now after our chief minister people are saying ‘Bas ab tum bhi bhagwa pehen lo…looks to tumahre similar hain hi’!” He adds, “Now it’s no ‘majboori’ for bald people to remain shaven or hide under a cap. From Hollywood to Lucknow this is cool and a part of fashion trend.”
