    One of the biggest  hair influencers of our time, Adhuna Akhtar talks to us about the spray that matters, plus intergalactic makeovers

    ADHUNA AKHTAR, hair stylist to the stars, is no fan of the hair straightener. But the striking and outspoken entrepreneur – BBlunt, her brand of salons, has over 16 outlets and a team of 100 – admits that you can certainly lighten up a bit when it comes to your mane. From her kit of about 26 products, researched and developed with FMCG firm, Godrej Consumer Products, Akhtar, 48, whips out three bestsellers: Climate Control, an anti-frizz leave-in cream; One Night Stand, a temporary hair colour; and Spotlight, a hair polish. All three are welcome additions to your bag for the NYE parties ahead, she says. “Climate Control, a multipurpose product, is suited to all hairstyles and contains quinoa for protein. I’ve just got back from Goa with a bunch of girlfriends, each with a different hairtype. It worked for all of them, and was just as easy as applying sun protection,” says the hair expert who became a celebrity of sorts after she showed off her styling chops on husband Farhan Akhtar’s directorial debut, Dil Chahta Hai (2001). While Spotlight, a spray that works like a serum, adds instant gloss to hair, it is One Night Stand that she predicts will go down well with the Star Wars crowd this season. “It is temporary hair colour. You spray and leave it on, and it shampoos out. I call it art on the hair. If you are wearing a pony tail, you can use stencils to add design, be it film or tattoo themed, or a geometric shape,” she says. Currently in blue, green, bronze and gold, with a sparkling pink coming up. Akhtar admits that she finds hairdressing therapeutic and is keen to spread her skill – so check out her academy or the reruns of her show on TLC. ilable online and at the BBlunt salons.

    Four to go
    ♦  Dry shampoo is what every girl must carry with her this season. A quick fix for fine and oily hair, but not a substitute to a hair wash
    ♦ I have never been fond of the hair straightener. I like to maintain hair in its natural state rather than try to go against it
    ♦ We have busy lifestyles and no one wants to waste too much time on hair. Braiding in various ways works right now. Hair for men is getting longer and it is more natural and beachy
    ♦ Among the movie projects coming up, there is Rock On!!2 with the team. Personally, there is Nitya Mehra’s Baar Baar Dekho, a long time after the first one. She’s a friend and I couldn’t say no to
