Styling My #HairIsFashion Hair! And a GIVEAWAY!!

My last post was about the awesome #HairIsFashion makeover I went for at the Lakme Salon. The look has been getting me compliments galore and what's even more interesting is the fact that during the makeover, senior hair stylist Mr. Raj also taught me a couple of hair styles to sport for different occasions!

I generally stick to the tried and tested style of leaving my hair open, for they anyway are not long enough for hairstyle experiments. But I was amazed how Raj worked around the length and created two distinct, easy-to-carry styles.  For the first look, he gave my hair gentle curls all over and blended the curls with the straight hair to create a beautiful messy look. Pretty easy to manage, this style can be worn anywhere - right from office to parties. 

The second hairstyle Raj created was fancier, giving an illusion of long hair and by the time Raj was done giving the look the final touch, I couldn't believe it was me! A loose fishtail knot on one side intricately merged with the remaining hair on the other side.  This one's just perfect to wear for fancy gatherings.

While my 'HairIsFashion makeover had me ecstatic about the vibrant colour bursts in my hair, these lovely hairstyles were like icing on my fashionable hair cake! What do you think? Looking forward to your thoughts on my makeover and these hairstyles!

    3) Fashion, I believe isn't just a superficial thing. It is what makes us feel good and comfortable about ourselves. But surely our appearance contributes to it and surely our hair has a charming role in it! :)
    Hair is fashion because it adds a big deal to our personality and a haircut that suits one's face can make a stunning difference; our hair makes us stand out and every new look brings out a different part of us. Even though our hair is just a big beautiful composition of dead skin cells, it surely is a magical and enchanting element of who we humans are. :)
    Yes, I think #HairisFashion and I'd surely like to experiment with it and see what is more to the grandeur of my locks!

    4)I live in Mumbai!
