I have been sort of dreading this post...
I am meant to be gushing about the hair at the Britannia Filmfare Awards. But no, much to my chagrin instead of a gush, something a little more akin to a trickle will escape my mind and dribble onto this page.
Let me hype you up a little before the let down - Bollywood is a HUGE player in the film industry. The expensive productions are fantastic, the theatrics amazing, and I have never wanted to move to Mumbai, join and/or start a perfectly coordinated flash mob where hairology (we'll discuss later) is prominently featured more than after seeing Bride and Prejudice in 2004.
But...have you ever heard of the Britannia Filmfare Awards?
Nope? I'm not surprised.
From a hair perspective, I imagined this would be an epic event! I just knew the hair would be glossy, luxey, decadent, and every bit as theatric as a Bollywood production. After all for those of you devoted to wigs and weaves MOST of that human hair you are buying at the cost of a vital organ is Indian hair!
I thought the coverage of the show would be akin to that of the Oscars with high quality pictures of hair beautifully coiffured and daringly presented. It wasn't. To add insult to my injury, the pictures covering the event were lackluster full stop!
There is some hoopla this year, (as every year) about the lack of "color" among Oscar nominees. To me - it is what it is. But what does make me slightly annoyed and sad is that an award show like the Britannia Awards isn't more widely consumed.
My two cents about the monochromatic nature of the Oscars this year? If the people don't want it, the production companies won't make it, the actors wont be chosen for it and there will be no nominees for it - the end.
With this one picture of the winner of the Britannia Filmfare Awards Best Actor in a Leading Role (Female), Deepika Padukone, her hair in a simple bun, (and no searchable information as to the stylist responsible), I'll say, "See you next week."
Poor picture quality or not, nothing takes away from this lady's beauty. Nothing. I wonder... if she was nominated for an Oscar, what would her hair look like then?
