When he first made his name in international cricket, MS Dhoni captured the country’s imagination with his hard hitting style and macho attitude.
Strutting into the middle with his long mane bristling behind him, Dhoni was an absolute rockstar and quickly became an icon for the youth. His long hair became a rage in the country, as everyone wanted to copy Mahi and sport the MS Dhoni hairstyle.
As brand Dhoni grew in size and popularity, so did his appeal to the youth, with his hairstyle being a major part of it. Every major corporate wanted to hitch this brand on the Dhoni brandwagon, which only grew in size after the 2007.
Recently, MS Dhoni once again made the news for sporting his long hair look in a Snickers ad.
The World Cup winning skipper was enacting the great character, as was seen addressing his team in the dressing room.
It is a fun ad which shows MS Dhoni in a never before seen avataar, as ‘Captain Cool’ gets pacified only after he eats a bar of snickers. MS Dhoni fans will love this ad, as they see their real life and reel life heroes combine into one superhero.
Dhoni was then asked if he missed sporting the long haired look. This is what MS Dhoni had to day,
“I miss my long hair. Sometimes. But life goes on,” said MS Dhoni.
His hair wig for the TVC was designed by famous hairstylist Sapna Moti Bhavnani. Sapna has worked with Dhoni for long and remains a close friend of Dhoni’s family.
