'I realised the importance of grooming very early on in my career, because as a model, it is my job to sell the outfit.'
To help you get through the monsoon, here are some hair styling tips by the supermodel.
Noyonika says, 'As someone who has extremely curly hair, the management of my locks has never been easy!'
'But with the monsoons, hair tends to become even frizzier due to humidity.'
'It's very important to keep the true texture of your hair in mind when styling it in the monsoons, as maintenance during this period is tough.
'The best way to combat this is to use products that suit your hair texture.
'For example, I use a little bit of extra conditioner, or use a leave-in conditioner to keep the frizz at bay.
'If you're someone with straight hair, spray just a little bit of hairspray to ensure that the style holds.'
Commenting on the hair styling industry and the importance of grooming, she adds, 'Grooming in any job and industry is necessary.
'But in a field like hair styling, I think it holds even greater importance. It's all about looking the part.'
'If a hairstylist is well-groomed, polite, and a good conversationalist, it evokes confidence in the client.
'I realised the importance of grooming very early on in my career, because as a model, it is my job to sell the outfit. Similarly, it is the hairstylists' job to sell the hairstyle,' she shared.
Noyonika got associated with luxury hair styling brand TIGI recently as an image consultant to train the shortlisted candidates of TIGI Backstage Heroes platform.
