The newest way to Color  is here!


Most of you who have ever searched YouTube a make up tutorial you will be familiar with the term “contouring” with make up, its the use of lighter and darker shades to to define or highlight areas of the face be it jaw line, cheek bones etc. This has now moved into assisting in creating the perfect color specifically for your face shape. Everyone has a different face shape and hair texture so its important when you are choosing what color you are going to do that you get the right advice, not just based on what’s in but also what would suit you best after a consultation from the experts.
Its about choosing light and dark tones in certain areas to create depth or shadow on the face and can completely change the way you look! If you are looking for a trend that is unique then look no further because this will not only be on point but bring out the best version of you possible.

 

Lets look at a few various face shapes so it makes it a little easier to understand how this will change the way you color your hair forever!

 

oval

When we look at an Oval face we have to expand it a little so it’s about creating lighter shades on the lower lengths and on the underneath of the sides and deeper or darker shades on the top to give the illusion of a slightly wider face

 

round

The goal here is to stretch out the look, so adding depth to the ends and lightening around the hairline will do exactly that and give you a more elongated look

square

Again it is about bringing proportion to the shape, accentuating the length and softening the lines using lighter and darker shades around the ears which adds interest and softness.

heart

Lightening around the jawline will soften the jawline and the lower section of the face, the top layers should be slightly lighter to take the eyes away from the width.

Its never about trying to be someone else, its only ever about trying to be the best version of you possible. If you are coloring your hair and if by chance its a block color then your doing it all wrong, naturally no one has the same color on every strand on their head from roots to ends, its incredibly artificial making hair contouring is the go to technique to either make you look naturally hot or over the top crazy ( the same thing can be done with bright colors be it pastel pink, reds, blues etc )

The biggest exit since BREXIT

With the entire world occupied 24 hours a day between looking after people in the real world to attracting people in the on line world, be it for personal or business purposes we all have less and less time for the things we used to have ample time for just a few years ago so it’s no wonder why trends are changing. In order for us to adapt to the world there is always small changes that happen over time so we can survive, sadly some of us at times struggle with change and try and hold on to what we did years ago in the hope that nothing in our world will change.

Well no matter what we do its changing and there is nothing you can do to stop it, embrace it because change is always good no matter how scared you are you have no choice but to ride it as a positive!

With hair trends the move towards more natural and free hair started a few years ago and is now gaining momentum here in India with more and more people looking for ways to break free from getting their same blow out every few days, here is a few tricks to help get a more natural look without much effort.

  1. Comb your hair with a wide tooth comb whilst in the shower with conditioner in it, the conditioner acts as a lubricant and will prevent friction on the hair
  2. Once out of the shower, only pat do not shake- remember the more gentle you are on the hair the less aggravation on the hair so the less frizz
  3. Using a leave in conditioner, serum, moisture crème is all a good idea unless you have super fine hair, but remember lightly and not on the roots
  4. Sea Salt ( Label M is my go to for all texture styling ) should be used the moment you get out of the shower depending on length 4-6 pumps on roots to mid lengths
  5. DONT OVER TOUCH IT – Sometime we get a little over anxious and want to touch it too much, do not play with it, let it be and do not run your fingers through it, this will create frizz

Give these tips a try and I am sure your hair will be looking more relevant and cool

Hair Color Trends on Point

Once in a while, we all reach a saturation point; when you crave for a change. It’s surprising how getting a new hair colour can completely change your look.  Even the slight change in your hair style or colour can have a tremendous impact on how you feel and look. I am actually talking about something fresh, (Maybe, a colour you were so scared to try) break away from the same and make a new head turning statement.

Get your inner spirit animal of Kylie Jenner alive, and go for a major change. I know you all adored her bright peach locks at Coachella Music Festival; maybe, it’s time for you to take the plunge.  If you had a look at Vogue’s May issue, it must have made your eyes pop out,  I literally looked at it three time to recognise this new “Rock N Roll” babe,  it was none other than Taylor Swift, with shaggy, bright blonde hair!  It doesn’t matter if you are looking for something drastic or a more lived in natural hue, till the time you’re up for it. I mean, some bold hearts can totally go for the rainbow hair trend that is flooding your social media feeds!

Also, if your looking for the perfect cool braid then try out our new BRAID BAR which is opening at our Flagship Salon in Mehar Chand market this Friday.

Just don’t wait, schedule your next appointment, and get your new look this summer!

THINGS YOU COULD BE DOING WRONG WHILE BRUSHING YOUR HAIR!

How many of us have been brushing their hair 100 times a day?

If yes, polite applause to your dedication, and sorry as no one can bring back the time you have wasted doing that. I know, we all love the idea of sitting in front a mirror and brushing our gorgeous hair like the Victorian times  (P.S. if you’re living with you’re bae, this habit would annoy the heck out of him Lol).  But the present generation hardly has time to eat their lunch, let alone brushing your hair like a ghost of the past. Plus, we are too smart in getting our facts right to fall for such habits. This age old myth isn’t just useless, but it could also harm your hair, brushing harshly and frequently is bad for your hair as it pulls hairs out of their follicles and it can possibly weaken individual strands.

Method: (This will seriously help) We all are use to brushing our hair from roots to our tips in autopilot, did you know this can cause excessive stress on the hair leading to breakage and hair fall? The Right way to do it is to begin brushing from the ends, and slowly working your way up the shaft in sections. You can also use your fingers to gently de-tangle knots. Worst case scenario, if you have practically lived your hair in a bun for days, you might need a lot more time in doing that my friend.

NEVER EVER brush your hair when it’s wet, unless you want to go bald. Wet is far more elastic than dry hair, due to which it is more fragile and can easily snap. If you have been getting heart attacks looking at your hair fall, this might be one of the reasons. De-tangle it before you wash.

Don’t use paddle brush to de-tangle you hair, always use a wide-tooth comb and a de-tangling product to reduce hair fall. And yes, price matters in case of your brush, as cheap brushes have low-quality plastic bristles that can rip damaged hair at its weak points. Stop saving at the cost of your hair, instead, cut down on your junk food and get yourself a good brush.

Lastly, just as important it is to clean your hair, it is also very important to clean your brushes regularly, at least once a week.  With time the bristles get clogged with stray hair and dirt. When you use your unwashed brush on freshly cleansed hair, you are actually depositing product residue onto your strands. Yes, for those who do it once a year, HEAR THIS OUT LOUD.

Follow these simple brushing tips. Trust me; your hair will thank me later.

LOB OBSESSION!

 

We have been washed by many hair trends over the past few years, but, very rarely do you come across a trend that has gone viral, and it’s everywhere. Lob (the long bob) and the bob have gone from the ‘next door girl’ look to one style that was seen all across Golden globes, Oscar and the Grammys.

We love the sexy shorter do Miranda Kerr rocked last month, by far the best feed when it comes to Instagram makeovers. I know we all get bored of the same look day after day. The best thing about summers; it gives you an excuse to go for something shorter and more lived in. I know so many people who would hate to style their long hair every day, plain lazy or someone clueless when it comes to trying different styles and experimenting a little with their looks. Well, maybe the best way to deal with the situation is to go CHOPPY. I know so many of you have been thinking about it for a year and contemplating SHOULD I? SHOULD I NOT? If you’re sick and tired of washing your HAIR FOR HOURS, then maybe it time to chop it off RAPUNZEL, because  you’re not going to get laid by letting your hair down from a tower in this generation.

We all have to admit it; it can be hard as hell to take care of your long locks, especially when you’re fighting DELHI’s pollution, dust, the fricking heat, and have lost half of your hair trying out products from TV ads. Why struggle so hard when you can look 10 times hotter chopped?

Don’t make a nest or a mess of your hair, and go get the LOB. If you are slightly more excited then you have the option of going super short, pull off a Taylor Swift,or a Karlie Kloss (IT’S HOT AS HELL, RIGHT NOW).  It can be one of the most versatile haircuts, as it fits any woman, with any face shape, or style, and if you have straight hair it’s said to be the shit.

You can keep it with or without bangs, blunt or layered, straight, wavy or curly, and style it in 100 different ways.  Who said short hair can’t be styled in many ways, maybe my GRANDMOM.

A LOB can give you a sense of confidence, a stronger look where you will feel more in control. Haircuts have a major impact on how you feel from inside as well as outside, go for this sexy, chic hair style —and refreshingly easy to wear.

Hair off the Runway

Well as the fashion weeks travel the globe for 20 16 here is a snap shot of the hair and our inspiration, certainly we have to say there is a clear direction into lived in hair that is loose and airy and a lot of braids which we love! I have to say on a personal level Alberta Ferretti at Milan fashion week which had that medieval sensuality about it ( a little copper wire and a clear vision you can either fix your car radio or create the next look for a A list designer 🙂 , effortless and connected to the look completly!

On and off the runway its very clear that braiding is here ( yes still I hear a lot of you saying! ) I’m sure it didn’t do any harm with Kim K sporting hers regularly over the last few months. Easy to try and easy to do, for those of you who are handy with your fingers ( doing things other than texting ) give it a go! If your all thumbs i suggest getting yourself into the salon and letting the pro’s give it a go!

I can feel a braid bar coming
