Says a source from Aalim's salon, "Salman had been growing his hair for Veer over the last two years. The actor had even gelled his hair and sported a ponytail for his TV show, 10 Ka Dum. Though he would trim his hair off and on, it was only last week that Salman had Imran come over to his Bandra home and give him a very short and spiky haircut just short of stubble. This is for his next film Arbaaz Khan's Dabanng."
The source adds, "Salman has styled his hair in very short spikes but hasn't coloured it as he had it done for Veer. Salman was very clear about what style he wanted as he has a distinctive look in Dabanng. For Veer, Salman had coloured his hair blonde with tawny highlights as he sports three different looks in Veer. The styling and colouring had been done by Aalim."
Salman Khan has finally chopped off his long mane which he had grown for Veer ironically, on the same day when the film's first promo was launched and introduced to the media last week. Hairstylist Aalim Hakim's assistant Imran styled Salman's hair.
