Being a destination bride may bring out a bridezilla in you that you never could have imagined! And while there maybe so many different elements that help you put together that perfect bridal look, hair is something that plays a rather vital role. And choosing the right hair colour is an absolutely essential decision! The colour and technique used can make a world of a difference. Just like makeup, even hair colouring can be played with using colour contouring, highlights, low-lights, strobing! All this can make a huge difference to your overall look and of course, put the spotlight on your best facial features too!
Hair is one thing that I have never shied away from experimenting with and despite the million things I may have already tried, there’s always something new in the market with variations that look different every time. Recently I visited the L’oreal Academy to glance through the new Matrix‘s new Destination Bride looks. They introduced me to the 3 distinct looks catering to three main bride hair trends- The Maharani bride with a royal touch, The Boho Beach bride with a carefree vibe & The Ethereal Garden bride with of course that whimsical allure. Each look uses a family of amazing hues that bring out the best each of these brides. It was hard to choose one look but I was drawn towards the Maharani bride look because that was close to my own wedding look.
Be it your day to day life or that special occasion, I don’t think any look can be complete without the mane being in place. Be it the styling, the cut or the colour. Hair is an accessory that can make or break any look. For me personally, I was rather particular about my hair during the wedding and went through every detail with my hairstylist much in advance. So many of you asked me about my hair colour back then and unfortunately I didn’t know the exact shades! But this time around when the Matrix experts swirled their magic wand , I managed to get notes on all the shades for you!
I stepped into the Matrix salon at the academy and was quickly taken through the new shades. Once we decided to go with the Modern Maharani look, they choose three shades for me- 12.35, 7.3 & 5.3! A mix of highlights and low lights, they played around with me hair for close to 3 hours to finally come out with a stunning summer bride look. And because it turned our so stunning, I decided to create and up do and pair with an outfit so that you no longer had to imagine the look but could see the final cocktail yourself!
If you’re a bride to be, I know exactly how chaotic life may seem right now. There are too many things to focus on and of course too little time. Hair with our a doubt is the new makeup and if you want to be camera-ready even with a bed head on those special days, these Destination bride looks are just for you! The colours may even help set a tone for your looks in case you’re struggling to settle with one. You can check our more inspiration images on Matrix India’s page!
