In the City recently to promote an anti-dandruff shampoo, Coleen said she will only endorse the products she truly believes in. After all when it comes to hair, most Bollywood celebrities swear by her word. “The credit goes to my mother. During my childhood, I used to spend most of my time in her little saloon and observe everything.

When I was into modelling for a few years, I simply felt that my heart was in the saloon and the next thing I knew, I was opening a place of my own,” she says.

Having styled many Bollywood actors and actresses, Coleen is very particular who she styles for. “I am very picky when it comes to styling as I want a client who will listen to me and is open to suggestions. At the end of the day, it is my name that is going to be tagged out there,” she adds.

Coleen has no qualms about saying who has the best hair in the industry. “It has to be Bipasha Basu. She has very good hair and she also tops the list when it comes to being the most experimental,” she adds.

For actors, maintaining their hair is the most difficult thing, says Coleen. Due to the heavy dose of chemicals put on the hair during shoots, their hair tends to get damaged easily. “There is no other way than to stick to the basics when it comes to maintaining hair. That is to constantly oil, wash and trim it,” she adds.

When it comes to trends, Coleen says that in India, there is only one trend and that is to grow long hair. “This is both a classic and a constant trend for both men and women. It suits every face shape and there is more scope for experimenting,” she adds.
With a hectic lifestyle, maintaining long hair can get difficult but according to Coleen, this is a myth.

“Be it short or long, you cannot get away without maintaining your hair. For those who want to maintain long hair, I suggest a shampoo without alcohol content. Also, exercise for at least 20 minutes a day and most importantly, eat at least one meal a day at home,” she suggests.

Down South, Coleen says there is little to worry about. Why? “Compared to the people of Mumbai and Delhi, South Indians are blessed with good hair as they start maintaining their hair right from childhood. The best tip is to keep things simple, clean and neat so that there will be no reason to complain about later,” she signs off.
