As the Tamil community prepared for Pongal this year, Indian actors Aishwarya Rajesh, Megha Akash, Dhivya Dharshini, Nivetha Pethuraj, Vani Bhojan and many other influencers took to social media to showcase how their hair is not just core to their appearance but also their personality, and encouraged their followers to join them in this celebration of their identity.
Hair is not just the best beauty ally for women, but is also central to her identity and expression. An exemplification of her moods and feelings, hair is an intimate characteristic of a woman that lends volumes to her persona. This is especially true in the case of Indian women, where hair has always been an integral accessory to one’s overall appearance. Recognizing this,Parachute Advansed, which stands for nurturance and authenticity, once again emphasised the importance of hair and the role it plays in defining a woman’s identity, through its latest brand film and campaign #EnMudidhaanNaan.
The brand filmshowcased different hairstyles for Pongal that represent different forms of expression – be it a traditional braided hairdo or a Thalaivar-inspired look – each woman is shown expressing her identity through herself or in this case, her hair. Inspired by the brand film, the celebrities donned their favourite look on social media for Pongal and danced to the rustic lyrics set in catchy folk tunes unbridled with energy and flair that is uniquely Tamil.
Renowned Tamil actress Aishwarya Rajessh said, “The Pongal film by Parachute Advansed – EnMudidhaanNaan – has inspired me to choose to be my true self this Pongal. As women contemplate on how to dress up, what jewellery to wear, whether to leave their hair down or put it up in a bun; this film encouraged us to be fearless and simply showcase our true self this Pongal. My hair is my swag. And when I roll it up or tie it down, there is no end to my swagger. The super catchy tunes in the brand film just got me inspired to go the Thalaivar way with my hair”

When I came across Parachute Advansed’s brand film it truly struck a chord with me.My mom is my biggest inspiration and no wonder that I like to wear my hair like my amma.
