Hair Color Is The New Makeup

Extravagant palaces, serene beaches and lush green gardens. Vibrant clothes, frolic and dance and grand buffets. Opulent clothes, exquisite jewellery and blushing brides. You guessed it right! Destination weddings are the most 'in' thing these days. Exotic destinations and creative themes teamed with the traditional 'Big Fat Indian Wedding' spells out a typical destination wedding. Every minor detail is meticulously looked after when it comes to planning a destination extravaganza and especially the wedding trousseau of the bride. Clothing, jewellery and make up, months of trials go into planning these out. Then why leave your hair behind and not complete your look?

We usually don't realize the importance of having the perfect hair color when it comes to the wedding day. Your hair color can make or break your entire look and Matrix can help you in perfecting your hair color game so it effortlessly blends in with your attire and accessories. Now, why is choosing the right palette of hair color as important as choosing the right palette of make up? Because hair color and styling is a critical part of putting together the overall look of the bride. The right hair color can add depth and dimension to your hair, complement your attire and definitely make you stand out.

Matrix, the leading Hair Color and Care brand, has brought out Destination Brides, a collection of three unique, stylist-crafted looks to celebrate the destination weddings through hair color that suit Indian skin-tones perfectly. The three looks are created using SOCOLOR by Matrix and inspired by three equally exotic and beautiful destinations: The Modern Maharani, The Ethereal Garden Bride and The Boho Beach Bride.

The first of the three looks is 'The Modern Maharani Bride' which, as the name suggests, is the amalgamation of the traditional with the contemporary. Keeping in tune with the weddings that come together among regal palaces and brides who want to look and feel like royalty on their wedding day, the look plays with hues of golden. Rich, elegant and extremely regal, the look is perfect for those who prefer to keep it subtle and classy.

'The Ethereal Garden Bride', which is the second of the three looks, is created using the luscious red and palette by Matrix. This look is perfect for an outdoor garden wedding as the vivid and bright shades of red highlight you surrounded by natural beauty, trees and flowers.

The last, but definitely not the least, is 'The Boho Beach Bride'. This one goes very well with beach weddings surrounded by open skies and the seas. Utilising a palette of rich plum hues, this look expresses the free spirit of the bride with a subtle yet enchanting look.

Equally important is to take care of your hair color and maintain its vibrancy for weeks. The Biolage Colorlast hair care range from Matrix helps you maintain the salon color vibrancy for upto 9 weeks!

I believe, for each one of us, our wedding day is the most special day of our lives and we should make sure everything is just perfect. The pictures of your wedding day, are something that you will cherish your entire life. Whether a Destination Bride or not, your haircolor is something that every bride should consider before the D-day and the creations by Matrix are the best way to do just that.
So, whether your D-day spells royal heritage, Garden of the Gods or Boho Chic, Matrix has got it all covered.

Follow Matrix for more hair color and care inspiration. Visit your nearest Matrix salon to see which look suits you best! All you have to do is identify your wedding spirit and go crazy with colors!

A home for every weekend.

Wouldn’t it be great to get out of the city, escape over the weekend and rejuvenate yourself?
After a stressful week, all you want to do is to relax and unwind. What better place to do it than in a serene pool, with a cup of coffee, surrounded by greenery and enjoying a conversation with the one who is closest to you. It may seem like a dream but it could be a reality. If you agree with me then it’s time for you to go and get yourself a weekend home.

Only a short drive from Pune, Lodha Belmondo is 100 acres of a beautiful property, to which my feeble words probably won’t do justice.

Signal Hill Cape Town

Photo by Mikhail

Cape Town has been on my travel bucket list since a very long time and why not? Cape Town has it all : beaches, mountains, harbours and a laid back yet vibrant city life. The city is spread out from the foot of the magnificent ‘Table Mountain’ to the beautiful pristine beaches. A city you will be talking about for months to everyone you meet as you take back so much visual beauty in your memory. This was Surf's and my first time in Cape Town and we just couldn't get enough. 

Meeting Mikhail was truly one of the great things that happened on my visit to Afrika Burn 2017. Not only is he an amazing photographer, but also a most gracious host. Keeping to his words, he showed us around Cape Town and all its sights & splendours. Continuing our shoot from Bo-Kapp we drove up to Signal Hill.

Le blanc c'est chic

Le Blanc c'est chic!
I spent a day at the luxurious property of JW Marriott Hotel in Pune the other day and nothing matches luxury than an elegant all white minimalist look. The hotel property is very picturesque, especially the poolside with lined palm trees and breezy open spaces. I could definitely spend the whole day lounging here. Also the luxe rooms on the executive floor has a stunning view of the city from the huge glass window. J'adore! Does make for a perfect luxurious stay to relax and unwind. 

Shoes can make or break your outfit, and with so many options to choose from, the styling possibilities are endless. The unique footwear trend has been dubbed by Vogue as the "nothing shoes," and it has quickly become the It style of the season.
