Matrix has taken a remarkable step in making the life of a Bride To Be easy, yet colorfully beautiful. Yes, it’s true!
This all started quite a few months back, when I attended the Matrix #DestinationBrides event. It was by far one of the most interesting events I have attended, especially after I started planning my wedding. Planning a wedding is a Herculean task, as there is so much to it. Then imagine a destination wedding where every little detail has to be taken care of well in advance: right from your wedding aesthetics, to your look for the big day! After attending this event, I realised that much like your makeup and trousseau, hair color is an essential part of your look.
If you have been following me on any of my social media handles, you must know that I was recently invited for an experiential with Matrix and must be eager to know more about it! I will start with a disclaimer that whatever I write here is in no way influenced by any brand inviting me to experience their service.
With my personal experience as a Bride-to-be and my wedding hardly a month away from now, I can totally share all the emotions going through me every single day. Emphasis is laid on my appearance -my skin, my hair and much more. I am taking measures to take proper care and guidance in each area. However, like every to Bride-to-be, I have a lot of questions and also a little distress if I plan on changing my entire look. Now picture your life made easy by an expert doing all the work professionally for you. That’s exactly what Matrix invited me to experience.
I was invited to their technical centre where I learnt how hair color can complement my entire look and complete it. They took me through everything that should be considered while coloring your hair – skin tone, face cut and the look you’re planning to wear on that special day.
Coloring your hair can be tricky, especially before your big day, as you don’t want anything to go awry at that point (pangs!!!). But the team of Matrix hair experts was really earnest and proficient in their work. The professional assistance has helped me understand a lot about my own hair and the world of possibilities opening up with the right hair color.
I was introduced to the three unique looks curated by Matrix experts. Their collection comprises of hairstylist-crafted, on-trend looks inspired by beautiful wedding destinations and the brides that bring them alive. Their collection marries color palettes and looks to complement the bridal destinations, from the classic Modern Maharani bride for those regal palaces, the Boho Beach bride for the perfect beach wedding and the Ethereal Garden bride for the charming garden setting. They have something for every bride!
After consultation with the experts, I chose the Ethereal Garden Bride! It’s a lovely look that blends highlights with my dark brown hair, giving my hair a statement, with each strand complimenting the look. It uses Matrix SoColor shades 6.62, 4.62 and SoRed 6VR.
After choosing the look, it was time to relax for me and let the experts work their magic on my hair. A relaxing hair wash later, the beautiful hair color was there for everyone to admire! Not only did it suit the natural color of my hair and skin tone, it also accentuated my face in all the right places. I felt like I was glowing!
Then to complete the Ethereal Garden Bride look, my hair was styled into a messy bun to really bring alive the color in my hair. The pictures speak for themselves!
Last but not the least, it’s equally important to take care of your hair color after it is done. If you decide to get a hair color service, do not forget to use Biolage Colorlast Shampoo and Conditioner to maintain the vibrancy of the color and that fresh-out-of-salon look!
The team took personal effort in explaining to me how these looks have been curated keeping in mind various factors and by various industry professionals. They detailed out how ‘The Ethereal Garden Bride’ hair colour will suit my face-cut, complexion, and the destination I have chosen for my wedding. Now I fully understand that hair colour is the new makeup and can make a massive difference in your appearance, specially on your big day.
Therefore, here’s a massive prompt to all the Brides-To-Be, head over to the nearest Matrix Salon and choose the perfect look! You can also follow Matrix facebook page and website and get your hands on their latest hair color and collections.
