“(Kiara) wanted to try something different than usual and so we decided to go with a futuristic look to match her sleek outfit,” says Nishi Singh, Advani’s hair stylist for the look, “She loved it so much that she texted me the next day congratulating me on nailing the look!” Ayesha DeVitre, who styled Pandey’s hair for the red carpet revealed that the look was a last-minute decision. “Initially we had narrowed down on a sleek ponytail for her. After she got into her whole look, I couldn’t help but think that there was something missing and that we could take the look up a notch. So we turned the ponytail into a braid. This was a last-minute decision and it completely changed the look!” she says, adding that Pandey’s willingness to trust her team with experimental looks has to be given some credit for the look.
