Monsoon Trends a la Christiaan Georgio Way

28th June 2007: Christiaan Georgio, the international hair & beauty salon at Grand Hyatt Mumbai, showcased new hip and chic monsoon hairstyles at the 'Trendy Monsoon Hair Workshop’. Diva and debonair hairstyles for men and women, from short cropped to long flowing locks were seen over hot cup of coffee through the evening.

Hair Maestro Christiaan Georgio showcased these seasons' trends by styling models Nina Manuel, Anchal Kumar, Shamita Singha and Sahil Shroff in styles best suited for the monsoons through the day and the evening. Keeping in sync with their individual personalities Christiaan styled Nina Manuel's hair in a twisted format to give her that true blue rock star chic look. Anchal Kumar had her tresses held high in an elegant, thick Pony Tail to highlight her mane and a thick partying across her hair for that sixties look. Christiaan's style for Shamita Singha was that of a Greek goddess with a gold and red ribbon pinned across her hair with swishing curls making her look like a true diva. Sahil Shroff had his hair styled in funky boy next door, hassle free look that is apt for men this season. Suggests Christian it's less use of hair products and heavy conditioners, as humidity in the air sets right in - the mantra for great hair for this season.

Further adds international hairstylist Christiaan Georgio, "Every season calls for a change in hairstyle and more so if it is the monsoon. We, here at Christiaan Georgio, believe that style maketh a person and the mane is an integral part of ones personality. We always recommend styles that are chic, stylish yet convenient to handle and still stand out. It's about having no fuss hair all through the season."
