Meet the flight attendants from IndiGo Airlines. They’re young, chic, and might be wearing a wig. Well that is if they refuse to cut their own hair. According to Anindita Ghose in the article A Curious Case of Stewardess Hair, the airline’s brand new uniform includes a grey tunic with an indigo corsage and hat that is to be worn with bright red nail and lip color, as well as the uniform bob. The new look was launched on August 15th.
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” in India. I wonder if the airline wants to reclaim that title by updating its uniforms and having their female flight attendants sport what the airline reports is a more sophisticated and international look? According to the stylist for the airline in an interesting article posted by Aneesh Padnish on PuneMirror.in, long hair or hair buns do not go with the new image that makes their flight attendants appear younger and smarter and, in my opinion, quite French and very vavavavoom!
