A cut apart

When you are feeling down or blue simply go for a haircut. It'll boost your happiness factor by scores. Just make sure your hair stylist is in a good mood, though. This is what Kapil, celebrated hairstylist from Mumbai said in between haircuts at Farzana Shakil's Gulshan outlet, where he was training the salon girls over the weekend.

Kapil emerged as a skilled expert from London College of Fashion and also acquired a Masters in the art of hairstyling from Vidal Sassoon, so he can now train people. He is capable of giving 140 cuts in a day and has mentored many professionals through seminars in India and abroad. With more than 11 years of experience, he has indeed made a niche for himself with his personal and technical skills.

The dashing stylist finds his job rewarding simply because of the satisfaction he gets by making people look and feel good. Kapil feels that a hairstyle change makes loads of difference outside and in. If you feel good about yourself, if you are comfortable in your own skin it brings out an inner glow that reflects on your confidence level.

“I don't believe in predicting a look for the season. The international trend doesn't always work for you. Style is a personalized service, where aspects like social background, job, personality, and hair texture factor in. Every detail matters. Ours is a hot and humid weather, our traditions make us wear our hair long, our hair textures are thicker, darker and we usually prefer a wash-and-go style, so what international ramps are carrying may not be your answer to looking good,” he explained.

“I've been friends with Farzana for a long time. I am here to impart the education to her team, and make Bangladesh a prettier place. I found that women here have good features, but they keep it plain. Though long wavy hair is sensual in my opinion, drastic cuts and experiments can be opted for. My tips for ladies here would be going for regular trims as it is healthy for the hair growth, and using moisture based serum for humidity so that their hair doesn't go limp. And while colouring, keep in mind that there is a shade for every complexion and variety of eye colour. Lastly, not to use henna excessively, it makes the hair rough. Keeping the grey is far better than the orange undertones; it doesn't solve the purpose.” Kapil will be making a few more visits this year to Farzana Shakil's Makeover Salon. If you want to permanently fix your bad hair day problem, you know where to look for him.
