In Conversation with - Amali Kandasamy

Amali Kandasamy -

With the monsoon just around the corner – we’ve heard rumours of light drizzles already – we figured it’s time to get a head start on getting our hair ready for the onslaught of rain and humidity. We caught up with WAHL Indian Artistic Team member and ace hairstylist from Looks Salon, Delhi, Amali Kandasamy, and grilled her about her favourite products, styles and how not to let the monsoon get the better of your tresses. Take notes women!

Since we still are in the last vestiges of summer, our conversation started with our favourite summer styles and some tips for those planning to squeeze in a holiday before the season ends.
