Bollywood-hairstylist Aalim Hakim reveals FIVE recent hairstyles of celebs with a leading newspaper.
He went on to explain the various celebreties and his take on their hairstyle. But before knowing his views on their hair style.
Fashion is an integral part of the Bollywood stars’ lifestyle and it’s not just about what kind of clothes they are sporting while stepping out of their house. With the growing style quotient of actors, now hairstyle is also a important part of the look that contributes to the style statement. Aalim Hakim who has shared some exclusive about recent haircuts of Bollywood A-listers that are currently on-trend.
From Hrithik Roshan to Sanjay Dutt to Saif Ali Khan, this is quite an exclusive list!
Excerpts from the interview shared by Times Group are as follows
Hrithik Roshan hair stylist:
Hrithik is someone who can pull off anything, long hair, short hair, buzzed hair. Sometimes he grows his beard, sometimes his beard gets short. If you look at his last three films, ‘Kaabil, ‘Super 30, and ‘War’, he got three different looks there. His salt and pepper look became popular. Even during his lockdown he didn’t touch his hair and let it grow. In fact, he did shape his own hair and chopped it a little from front and side, but that’s it. I recently did his haircut with sharper sides that look good on him. We are still working on a haircut right now.
Saif Ali Khan hair stylist:
For Saif, we went for just a sharp haircut. He is very difficult to convince because he is very rigid about certain things when it comes to his hairstyle. He doesn’t want to keep his hair volumized or anything that makes him look cool, then he will say am looking like a kid. So I have to keep talking to him during the haircut and in the end, he gets convinced. He has his own sleek hairstyle and is very classy about it. I have been doing his hair forages now. People mostly like his ‘Omkara’ look which was actually copied from my hairstyle back in those days. This happened one day prior to the film shooting, the whole look was supposed to be with long hairs and a bandana. But Vishal Bhardwaj sir was like let’s try shorter hair and try Aalim’s hair. So they photoshopped my hair on him and it looked great!
Shahid Kapoor hair stylist:
I have been styling Shahid’s hair since his childhood, even before he was launched in Bollywood. He’s been coming to me for his hair when he was featured in Aryans’ hit music album ‘Aankhon Mein’. He got great hair and developed a different style that people like to follow. For example, people are still doing his iconic ‘Shaandaar’ look. He has been experimenting so much, for ‘Haider’ he went for buzzed hair, for ‘Udta Punjab’ he sported long hair and now ‘Jersey’ is coming up. Although I can’t comment on his recent look right now since the film is still under process.
Abhishek Bachchan hair stylist:
Abhishek wanted to go for razor-sharp hair and we have also done this earlier during ‘Manmarziyaan’ where he had a very spiky uneven length. So I told him this time we will do something new and retro at the same time, which he has never done before. So I had to convince him, otherwise, he is a very sporty guy and got good taste in fashion. I buzzed his sides and back with a fade. For the top, we kept it nice and old school with a quaff, like how Elvis Presley used to have. And when I did it, he loved it! It highlighted his jawline perfectly and worked with his face structure. When I had shared the pictures on Instagram, I was bombarded with messages from everyone that it looked nice. It went viral!
Sanjay Dutt hair style:
Sanjay Dutt came down to my salon after a long time. He wanted a fake scar to remind him of his struggles and hardships. So I chopped his hair very small and gave him a scar on his eyebrow and sides. After two days, we also coloured his hair blonde. I have been doing his hair for a long time now, my father had styled his hair for ‘Rocky’. He is very creative and experimental about haircuts, you tell him to try a hairstyle and he will be up for it. Sanjay can pull off anything. He was looking for a new makeover to make himself feel good and as I told you, if a hairstyle makes you feel good about yourself, so be it.
Virat Kohli hair stylist:
Virat mostly sports very sharp hair, his sides, and back have to be sharp. He loves matted hair that looks natural and not too much-styled. Only his haircut should be nice, rest he is very easy to work with. He is basically a style icon who understands everything about fashion. He knows how to do his own hair and maintain it which is fantastic. It’s not like he has restrictions because of sports, he is also into experimenting. Like I have changed his haircut here and there. Once I gave him a short razor cut that went viral then tried a French crop look on him that looked great too
