The essence of putting a look together has always been down to the right kind of outfit and makeup as per your personality. We put so much thought and effort in what to wear and the right shades of eye shadow and lip-color. But we forget that no look is complete without the perfect hairstyle. As they say, invest in your hair; it is the crown you never take off!

Growing up, I have definitely learned the importance of highlighting all my best features to look good (feel good). Shopping for new trends and fashion, investing in good makeup and taking care of my health, skin and hair; everything is a part of my daily routine.

If you guys have been following me on Instagram, you might have seen how black and straight my hair is. Yes, they are easy to manage and never take long, no ironing is needed, and my natural hair color is fine but they also say “boring”, out loud. Which is why I have always been keen try on new things. Specially now, that I am a Bride-To-Be (blush-blush) and want to look different and flawless and totally on point on my big day (Wish).

Then, I attended the Matrix #DestinationBrides event a few months back. It was, by far one of the most interesting events I have attended so far, especially after, I started planning my wedding. The event was quite an eye-opener as I realised that much like your skin care, makeup and trousseau, hair color holds an essential part of your look.

During the event, the Matrix team took me through 3 looks curated by Matrix experts. Their collection comprises of exclusive, hairstylist-crafted, unique, on-trend looks, which have been inspired by beautiful destinations and the brides that bring them alive. Their collection marries colour palettes and looks to complement the bridal destinations, from the classic Modern Maharani bride, the Boho Beach bride and the Ethereal Garden bride, there’s something for every bride. One needs to consult a professional hairstylist to ensure they take all the factors into consideration before choosing their hair color and overall look for your big celebration! There are a lot of things to be considered before choosing the right color and look. Be it hair type, hair texture, the kind of wedding you will have, the season you have your wedding during. You definitely need advice and direction from a professional. I’d like to thank Matrix for helping me understand this, so I can do the right thing for my big day!

All this professional assistance has helped me understand a lot about my own hair and the world of possibilities opening up with the right hair color. It will help me plan my hair before the wedding. Just like you would choose to get the right shade of makeup and your lip colour on your big day, you should also choose the right hair color to complete your look. Its simple here, as you use makeup to accentuate your best facial features, hair color is the medium through which your hair can up your style quotient. Did you know even hair color can help highlight your best facial features?

In fact, hair color is the new make up for your hair as it adds dimension to any style and enhances a haircut. To top it, a well-done hair color only adds more life to your appearance and showcases your facial features in the best way possible.

So this October, I am heading over to Matrix experts and getting my hair (colored) ready for my big day in November!
