Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
Adhuna Akhtar, writes a letter to every woman, urging them to be the best versions of themselves, she says, that it’s no more a beauty industry but a clone industry.
In today’s world, when women are bombarded each day with impossible beauty standards, Adhuna Akhtar, who is a celebrity hair stylist writes a letter to every woman, telling her to break the stereotypes imposed by the society. Here’s her letter.
Dear Women of Today,
We, for years now, have been told what to do and what not to do. The way we are supposed to live, the way we are supposed to look and the way we behave. If we’re different, we aren’t welcome, if we want to shake things up a little, we are pushed away!
We have been told that beauty has to be a certain way, that it has to be perfect. There is no room for imperfection, because apparently it’s not the way to be! Dark is not beautiful, light is. Curvy isn’t appreciated, got to be skinny! The definition of what is beauty and beautiful has been skewed for way to long now.
The only true way to define beauty is to define it for yourself, the way ‘YOU’ want it to be. As they say ‘haters gonna hate’ and BTW when did curly hair become a problem? Or straight hair become a problem? WHEN DID ANY OF THIS BECOME A PROBLEM OR THE STANDARD DEFINITION OF BEAUTY? It’s not a beauty industry anymore, but a clone factory.
We at BBLUNT have always stood for imperfection because that is what we truly are, our imperfections are what make us beautiful. Don’t be scared to try something new or different, just because ‘THEY’ say it isn’t right. Always strive to be the best version of yourself!
It’s time we took control of things, started to decide for ourselves. Don’t want to tie your hair? Don’t tie it! Don’t want to leave it open? Don’t leave it open! It’s simple. It’s time you let your hair feel free, truly free. Let it decide for itself what it wants! Have a little fun, experiment, do something you’ve never done before!
From today, we unlearn everything we’ve learnt, unclog everything that’s been force-fed to us and unleash our true potential. It’s time to let go of the bulls**t. It’s time to unleash your hair. B Smooth. B Blunt.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Asking women of the office to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Asking women to welcome guests with bouquets at business and social events is blatant tokenism and sexism at the same time!
Why is the task of handing over bouquets to dignitaries at social and business events primarily a feminine task?
This question nags me endlessly. I cringe at the sight of women waiting in a loosely formed queue at the steps leading up to the stage at these events.
