  • Why Reverse Brunette Balayage Is 2018's Edgiest Hair Color

    By definition, the word balayage means "to sweep" on hair dye that mimics sun-kissed highlights. The colour technique has won countless fans simply because its results look lived-in, unfussy, and, most importantly, natural. Or so we thought. This morning, we found a new way to balayage on Reddit — and not to alarm you or anything, but it completely redefines what the technique can look like.

    A Redditor who goes by the handle DEH0001 posted the above picture showing off reverse brunette balayage. Of course, when most of us think about balayage, we picture a brunette using the bespoke method of colouring to lighten her darker strands. But in this case, the model chose to do the opposite, darkening her golden blond hair by painting on ombré caramel and chestnut tones. The result is unconventional, surprising, and even a little shocking, but that's kind of the point, says colourist Cassie Cohen.

    Cohen, who works at the NYC salon Sharon Dorram Colour at Sally Hershberger, says the look "defies what the sun will naturally do to your hair colour," which is lighten things up. Because it's so unconventional, Cohen says that "This is a trend that is edgier than your average ombré and can be altered to flatter any skin tone or natural hair colour."

    Better yet, this style isn't too hard to maintain. According to Cohen, "This would require a regular highlight visit to lighten your roots and refresh the dark bottom," which should take place every six to eight weeks. Cohen also said that it would benefit anyone who wants a reverse balayage to "go in for a refresh gloss in between colour sessions to keep the vibrancy of the tones alive."

  • Maintain honeymoon beauty

    According to TripSavvy, 99 percent of couples who choose to have traditional weddings take a honeymoon. Around 1.4 million couples in the United States depart for honeymoons around the world each year, spending an average of $4,466 on the trip.

    Though not nearly as pressure-filled as wedding planning, honeymoons do require some planning to ensure a fun and memorable trip. In a Bridal Guide survey, wedding couples indicated they were most likely to worry about wardrobe, swimsuits, sunglasses, sunscreen, and luggage when getting ready to depart.

    Couples who want to look their best on their honeymoon and in their honeymoon photos should not forget to pack the following items.

    Sunscreen: Sunscreen is a must whether you’re traveling to the pink beaches of a tropical island or the slopes of a ski resort. Choose a product that protects against both UVA and UVB rays, and be sure to reapply every 80 minutes or so, especially after perspiring or swimming. Sunscreen will help prevent damaging and painful sunburns that can adversely affect a trip.

    Makeup-remover wipes: Even high-end resorts may not provide the correct face bar for removing makeup and refreshing skin. Makeup-removing wipes can offer deep cleaning in a few convenient swipes.

    Hair refresher: Brides who want to get a few extra days out of a wedding day hairstyle should pack a hair refreshing spray to tame static and add UV protectors that keep locks pampered until they’re ready to wash. Dry shampoos also allow for a little refreshing of hair between daytime adventures and evening dinner.

    Eye cream: There may be a few late nights while you’re enjoying romantic, candlelit meals or hitting up the hot spots around a resort. Ensure honeymoon photos do not show tired eyes with an eye cream that can reduce puffinesss.

    Tinted moisturizer or BB cream: A high-quality tinted moisturizer or BB cream will hydrate skin and add just a sheer wash of color to even out skin tone. Pair with lip balm and a waterproof mascara and your honeymoon face will be ready.

    Teeth whitening treatment: Couples who invested time and money into achieving whiter teeth for their weddings don’t want to let all of that hard work go to waste. Brush on whitening product after eating and drinking to prevent stains and freshen breath.

    Blotting papers: Humid climates may cause perspiration and oils to leach out of the skin. Tame shine and that greasy feeling with blotting papers.

    Light fragrance: Heavy perfumes have no business on breezy honeymoon escapes. Find a light, flowery scent or something tied to nature, like citrus in a travel-sized atomizer.Read more at:purple bridesmaid dresses | wedding dresses

  • Ageless threads of beauty

    Embroidery or thread work has an uncanny knack of bringing an outfit to life. A floral motif on a white organza kurti, for example, will not only jazz up your look but also add a trendy twist to it. In fact, even Bollywood celebrities like Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif, Shraddha Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Madhuri Dixit and Radhika Apte, to name a few, have embraced thread work as their go-to design on several occasions.

    Time and again Alia has been spotted with chic embroidered outfits — be it a traditional kurta or gown with a dash of popping red needle work. Even Hollywood star Emma Watson was spotted wearing an embroidered gown at an event recently. “It’s incredibly challenging to create something with the traditional crafts of India yet it is simultaneously very universal. Globally, I feel people do have a huge respect for Indian craftsmanship, we just need to take out the ethnic feel out of the ethnic techniques and create a more global product; that’s what the world demands,” says designer Rahul Mishra, who has been working relentlessly to make embroidery appealing to the global consumer.

    While working with decorative threads, Rahul treats his clothes like canvasses, expressing himself through embroidery. He further says, “I look at all these different types of embroideries as techniques to create a more contemporary design. I use a lot of mix media while exploring different artworks and techniques. We could create French knots using aari and zardozi work, or we could be working on something with a lot of patchwork, or maybe even create something with a Parsi gara. It’s really just about exploring these traditional techniques to find new ones,” adds Rahul.

    Explaining about the ever-so-voguish trend of embroidered clothes, designer Divya Reddy says, “Thread work can never be out of fashion but how you wear it does matter a lot. The key is not to go overboard. Florals are always the go-to thing when it comes to thread works but a quirky cartoon bird too can do wonders.” Thread work suits everyone and any body type; it’s the cut and the silhouette which has to be taken care of. “The placement of flowers does the trick. If one wants a slender waistline, floral work will be the heaviest on the waist, going light all over,” shares designer Shriya Som.

    Whether you are off to work or going for a casual Sunday brunch with friends, a denim jacket with embroidered motifs paired with palazzos can do wonders. Or if one’s in a dilemma about going completely desi or sporting a fusion look, an embroidered skirt can save the day! Pair it with a cold-shoulder top, a crisp white shirt or a crop top to ace the fusion style, feels celebrity stylist Ami Patel.

    Designer Gaurang Shah too loves to experiment with the needle quite often. “I get inspired by embroideries like chikankari, zarodzi, patti ka kaam (appliqué), aari, kasuti and other very rooted traditional handwork. While most designs that are attempted in embroidery are usually florals, I like to break away from conventions and explore geometrics, designs inspired from Persian tiles and a play of colours to get a 3D depth,” he says. For city’s designer Vijay Rana, it’s the love for transforming plain fabrics by using threads into artworks that creates magic.Read more at:tea length wedding dresses |
