Wind, rain and sun may contribute to making the seasons around the year. But in India, there is one season that is entirely controlled by women. Yes! We mean the bridal season. A wedding is not just a big occasion, it’s actually a sales-driven enterprise for various verticals — from planners and organisers, to fashion and jewellery brands, and of course salons. In India, a traditional wedding is much like a mini carnival, replete with elaborate pre-wedding functions, full-blown reception parties and post-wedding rituals. All this calls for a detailed wardrobe with synchronised styling. No wonder then, the bridal season is the busiest time of the year for hairstylists, beauticians and aestheticians alike.
To help you decide upon which style to sport on your wedding day, if you are a bride-to-be, or to get you to convince your client about a particular look, if you are a stylist, we present to you the ‘bridal styles’ issue. In keeping with the needs of the modern Indian brides, we bring you a mix of trendy styles with the right traditional touch.
Our haircare rituals, expert advice and an eclectic choice of hairdos is sure to make your task of putting together a ravishing look a lot more easier. We have also roped in beauty experts to handhold you as you decide upon your make-up colours, wardrobe choices and skincare regimes. All in all, we at promise to make this issue a one-stop-solution for you, for all your bridal grooming queries. What’s more, we have even packed in a fair bit of styling and beauty guidelines to follow whilst you romance away with your better half on your honeymoon.
The altar is waiting to receive you, as is your beloved husband-to-be. All you have to do is walk down the aisle with perfect poise and let love wave its magical wand over the beginning of your new life.
