“For men, short sporty styles are in trend like military inspired styles crew cuts and spikes. While women should go for shoulder length hair, either straight or with sharp layers,” Yatan Ahluwalia, Grooming and Image consultant, of the duo Yatan and Jojo, said.
“Make sure hair should be washed properly and they are manageable,” added the stylist who is also director of Y&E Style Media Pvt Ltd.
What about hair care during summer?
Doling out tips, Ahluwalia said this season, one should use oil free products. "Opt for water based styling products. We prefer L'Oreal - both for their quality and end result.”
Ahluwalia felt women should go for minimal makeup.
“Less is more this summer. Use lots of mascara, a bright matt mouth for the day and a colour-coated gloss for the night. Don't go for heavy make-up, it makes skin look oily,” he said.
According to the stylist, lip shades with bright and bold colours like coral, peach and pink are perfect.
“A lot of emphasis on nails should be given too. One should use bright eye catching colours for both hands and feet.”
Do not blindly follow fashion.
“When we talk about grooming, it completely depends on what suits the individuals face, body and lifestyle. At the end of the day, grooming is about an individual and not just blindly following trends. Our consultation is based on what the person is comfortable with, where they want to be and the kind of image they want to project,” said Yatan adding, “We treat our corporate clients very differently from individuals. It varies from client to client and from person to person.”
The grooming expert, who started writing on fashion at the age of 14, is working on three books with subjects like men's grooming, men's fashion and women's make up.
