Amritsar-born hairstylist Madhav Trehan talks about his journey to this point

  • How did you get interested in hair styling?

My mother had a salon in Amritsar and she would ask me to learn the basics of hair styling, and then continue only if I wanted to. During the initial days of my training, I would be just looking out of the window and wondering when I would go home. But gradually I got interested in the craft. I learnt different styles, haircuts and colouring options. This is how I started.

  • Can you share your past work?

I have done over a thousand songs in Punjab since 2015. My first Bollywood project was with Jacqueline Fernandez for her film Mrs. Serial Killer. I have also been a part of other projects of hers, like Genda Phool. Then, I worked with Nupur Sanon on a few events as well as her music video Filhaal.

  • What do you enjoy doing the most?

As a hair stylist, I love experimenting with hair. I love being on the sets. The energy is just palpable. It really motivates me to give my best.

There are so many talented hairstylists in the industry. I have learnt a lot from people like Amit Thakur, Florian Hurel and Shaanmu, and I cannot really compete with any of them.

  • Can you share your experience of working in Genda Phool?

I was asked to do three different hairdos for Jacqueline in Genda Phool. The character was a Bengali woman. So, I took help from my Bengali friends. High pony, wavy, and straight long hair were a few of the looks we had decided on. Jacqueline was nervous initially but once the cameras started rolling, we were all confident.

  • How do you select a particular hair style for a celebrity?

It’s all about how you read the face. But it’s not like you have decided to do only one single hairstyle on a person, you can change it anytime.

  • Which assignment has been a dream come true for you?

When I was working in Punjab, at that time, my dream was to work with Jacqueline Fernandez and now I am working with her. It’s a dream come true for me.

  • Who are the celebrities you want to work with?

I want to work with Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Kriti Sanon, and Priyanka Chopra, to name a few.
