BB with AA is a cut, colour and makeover show sponsored by L’Oreal.
I saw two episodes and felt we had finally got a beauty /how- to show right
Sibling duo Osh Bhabani and Adhuna Bhabani Akhtar brought an edgy London sensibilty to hair styling and cutting when they started off in India and now run the B Blunt chain of salons.
Adhuna is the face of the brand and she has a quirky personal dressing style so watching her show I was a bit distracted from the spin cutting technique she was demonstrating because her colour blocking was so lust worthy.
I saw orange nails and an egg yolk yellow tunic top in one episode , a mauve Pero shirt with fisherman pants in another , a cool turqouise blazer and orange shoes in the title sequence.
But her hair styling is what the show is about and it is chic and sharp.
I particularly liked what she did in R mall at an Open house blow out .
Two girls were who dared to go against the standard Indian norm of a long layered cut got an on -the- spot asymmetric and edgy transformation. A girl in the Juhu anchor salon got some rather vibrant streaks in her hair .
My only quibble – Because of the designer makeover segment the show is reminiscent of the Band Baaja Baarat format and the meet –the- Bollywood star segment is a bit forced.
I am sure they will re-jig these sequences moving on.
I don’t know if this is scheduled for an entire season or just seven episodes.
