Watching B Blunt with Adhuna Akhtar

Have you been watching Adhuna Akhtar on TLC ? 

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.
