Galley Gossip: IndiGo flight attendants forced to cut their hair - or wear a wig
IndiGo Airlines is a private domestic low cost carrier based in Gurgayon Haryana, India. It's main base is Delhi's Indira Gandhi's International Airport. In 2008 the airline won the title "Best Domestic Low Cost Carrier." I wonder if the airline is trying to reclaim that title by having their flight attendants sport what the airline reports is a more sophisticated and international look? According to the stylist for IndiGo airlines in an interesting article, long hair or hair buns do not go with IndiGo's new image, a look the airline believes makes their flight attendants appear younger and smarter and, in my opinion, quite French and very vavavavoom! But in a vintage way.
While it was initially mandatory for the flight attendants of IndiGo Airlines to wear the bob after the airline launched its new image, they now also have the option of wearing their own hair in a "French roll or tie bun." This after they put on what was reported as "a brave front in the face of severe scrutiny by curious passengers" known to love long hair. Thankfully things have changed. If it were me, I'd go with the French twist. It's just as sexy and a lot more practical.
