#HeadStylistSpeaks: Santosh on busy Mondays, hair tattoos and why Sonam Kapoor definitely needs a makeover!
First things first, describe a day in the life of a busy Affinity hair stylist!
It is definitely very exciting to be a big part of the on-going hustle and bustle. We already have a battalion of clients already awaiting to avail services, while we are working on somebody else! It tends to get very chaotic at times but the fun never stops and that is the best part.
Tell us what made you choose this wonderful profession
It just happened all of a sudden and now it has almost been 13-14 years since! I had come to Mumbai for a holiday and was doing hair dressing just for fun. Much later I realized that hair styling is something that I am totally good at and since then I have never looked back!
Who is your constant source of inspiration?
Anthony Mascolo, the founder of TIGI. He is an amazing artist and an icon for generations of hair stylists! The way he creates trend defining looks is something that I always look forward to and his work just never ceases to impress. Love that guy!
Name your favourite hair trend of 2017!
For guys, I would say, the faded haircut is totally enjoying its’ moment. The sleek, combed look on the top is the best way to style it. For women, short hair is definitely making a comeback- pixie, undercuts, vivid hair tattoos, etc!
What’s the biggest hair trend of 2017?
For haircuts, shorter the better! And for colour, I would say blue is basking in all the glory. I do get a fair amount of requests, especially from college kids to get their hair coloured in blue!
Name one celebrity who needs a complete makeover!
Definitely, Sonam Kapoor! Don’t you think so? Since her debut, she has been sporting the same look everywhere. I honestly don’t remember the last time she got her hair cut!
Tell us your go-to hair care tip!
Regularly shampooing your hair is a must, especially cause of pollution, weather, etc. and conditioning after every wash is of prime importance! Using a serum suitable for your hair type also paves the way to gorgeous, shiny hair.
