“It was an amazing feeling to get selected as StyleSpeak Young Gun 2022 because StyleSpeak is an esteemed brand, it’s more artist & creativity-oriented.
I presented a male hairstyle at my show on the Young Guns live stage at HBS! The inspiration for my look was ‘breaking the monotony where men have their sides done short and the top is kept long’.
