Designer Arjun Saluja collaborated with haircare giant TIGI to present a hairstyle and high-fashion showing on Day Two of the LFW. Have a look.

Day Two of Lakme Fashion Week saw the cutting-edge of hairdos and haute couture come together on the runway.

Designer Arjun Saluja presented his 'Resurrection' line, inspired by the Japanese martial art form of budo and the models sported poker-straight dos courtesy the new line of Catwalk Sleek Mystique products. Take a look.

We start off with this formal jumpsuit, sporting dramatic collar and double rows of buttons.
