Hair on Show displayed these and dozens more in all their glory” “To confer the term doyenne on Ramani Fernado for her long drawn out association with all that’s hairy and hot is appropriate. Testimony to that fact was the mega show put together by the lady herself associated by seniors Cherryl, Nadine, Naresh and Shobhini, together with an entourage of helpers.

Daily News – 8/4/95 – “CULT OF CREATIVITY” “Are you looking for a female with a prescribed length of hair to model for you? Well! You would not have the need to any longer, for men can do this job and do it equally well. If you had been to Ramani's Hair on Show 95 at Colombo Hilton last Saturday, you would know exactly what I mean. It was a show with hair, hair all the way and hair in its many forms-cuts, styles and extensions – sported by as many men as were women and in a pageant produced by creative personality Graham Hatch and choreographed by Naomi Rajarathnam.
