The clean cut is not fashionable, says known French hairstylist Laurent Decreton, who believes older Indian women should not shy away from trying a messy or classic look. He also suggests that brides be more adventurous by adopting trendy hairstyles for their D-day.
Decreton, who himself sports very short hair, told IANS, "I think women should try new fashionable styles and experiment with hairdos. Hairstyles in India are very formal. It should not be that formal. I feel it's only young girls who are playing with hair in India."
The celebrity stylist, known for his modern-day cuts and styling, has a wide range of experience - be it working on top models and celebrities like Naomi Campbell, Carla Bruni, Emmanuelle Beart and footballer Robert Pires or collaborating with fashion shows by Chanel, Yves Saint-Laurent and Jean-Paul Gaultier.
Decreton, who has been frequently travelling to India in the past 12 years, said, "It's not necessary to have a clean hairdo. I think people here (India) don't try the messy or classic look, especially mature females.
"I've been observing Indian faces and their hairstyle for a very long time. One thing that is really missing is that Indian women don't focus on the sides of the head while making hairstyles.
How to Get the Messy Look

"The front will look nice if you tighten the sides, which most Indians don't do. Also, they should be careful for the side hair for finishing and to make it classic," he added.

Decreton suggests that "Indian weddings and the hairstyles are very formal. But Indian women should change this habit and try new, trendy hairstyles for wedding. That is the reason we picked wedding as the theme for the same. Weddings are all about happiness, trying something new gives confidence and happiness to the bride."
Though Indian women are not so adventurous in trying new hairdos, he says the salon business has boomed here. "In the last 12 years, I've seen a rapid and massive growth in the Indian hairstyle business. I think the growth in real estate and change in the lifestyle of people are making it big here," he said.
Spring Hair Trends

Asked about some of the spring hair trends and hair colour for Indians, he suggested, "Hair colours like honey, chocolate and red would look stunning on the Indian skin tone. But, yes, it should be balanced, not very light. I think it's nice to play with the roots and the end should be left lighter with colour."
