Held on the 1st of Feb this year, OPPO Times Fresh Face Finalists of 2016 witnessed a transforming training & grooming session. In its 9th edition, the very popular talent hunt competition across colleges in India had been supported by the Times Group for the past 9 years and the fast growing OPPO majorly sponsored the event this year! *Nice*

Our team checked in at Hyatt Regency where the event took place and had a gala time attending it! To begin with, two contestants (one male & one female) were chosen from 11 different cities across India based on multiple rounds of selection. This event also had two wildcard entries as well as two green pass entries! *Ahem, lucky folks!* The chosen 26 contestants will be competing to win the Fresh Face Title at the Grand Finale, later this month in Mumbai.

Moving Forward | The much-awaited training & grooming event was graced by the presence of super famous star photographer Dabboo Ratnani and fbb Femina Miss India World 2015 - Aditi Arya! Their individual sessions with the contestants and the media gave useful insights to the audience and gathered a lot of appreciation.

The contestants earned the chance to learn some brilliant photography and *selfie* skills from the best in the industry! The very gorgeous Aditi Arya took over later to guide the young minds on the skills and techniques required to make one’s selfie taking experience beautiful and perfect! *Need of the hour, right?* She also shared a few choice grooming tips with them to help them enhance their overall appearance and also boost their confidence!
