Fardeen Khan, who has often been touted as something of a style icon, was recently seen at the opening of Apeni Savio's salon, Magic, in Bandra.
We decided to check with Fardeen about his connection with the hairstylist.
How do you know Apeni?
She's been styling my hair since Jungle. When I was shooting for Jungle in Pune, I needed a haircut.
Today, apart from being my stylist, we are also great friends. Apeni does everyone's hair in my family, including my wife Natasha.
What's her style like?
Apeni is a talented hair and professional make-up artist, who has designed my look in all the Provogue campaigns.
She has also done my look for in forthcoming films like Darling, which is a thriller, Viveck Vaswani's Dulha Mil Gaya, Shyam Bajaj's Jai And Veeru and Heyy Babyy!
What's your take on changing hairstyles with fashion trends?
I don't believe in doing something for the heck of it. It has to suit me. I am quite conventional. However, it is important to reinvent yourself every now and then, especially with the various characters one plays in different film.
Have you ever thought of going bald for a role?
Yes, why not? It depends on the filmmaker and his commitment to the film. But there's no point doing something for the heck for it.
You have always been known as a style icon.
I owe a lot to my designer, Shahid Aamir, who has made a great contribution to my image. I do have my own ideas and a sense of style, and am even fussy or rigid at times.
Like there are only a few colours that I wear - like black and pastels - nothing more, nothing less.
Your favourite outfit?
Ripped jeans to keep you cool, a vest and a shirt. I also enjoy wearing a suit once in a while.
How many pairs of jeans do you have?
12-15 pairs. I wear one for many years till I have to throw them out. My favourites are Abercrombie&Fitch, Armani and Levis.
Are you an accessories person?
I only have a weakness for watches. My favorite is Franck Muller's Crazy Hours. I also like wearing rings.
