Hair - - Editor's Letter -

Dear Reader,

I re­mem­ber as a kid I would stand in front of the mir­ror try­ing to repli­cate my mother’s braided updo. Of course, with my short hair and chubby fin­gers, it wasn’t pos­si­ble. But I kept try­ing, at least till I was bit­ten by the trend bug in my teens. From then on it was a rapid suc­ces­sion of styling changes, courtesy the hot styles donned by ac­tresses on screen. From Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s long lay­ers to the uber cool ‘Rachel Green’ look sported by Jennifer Anis­ton, I tried a lot of hair­styles. To­day, when I see hair­dressers chalk out new trends, I re­alise that cre­at­ing trends is all about work­ing with the fac­tors that in­flu­ence you.

Fashion hits in­ter­na­tional ramps and we in­stantly adapt cer­tain styles that suit our sen­si­bil­ity. But in the world of hairstyling, we are not al­ways the bor­row­ers. The Eastern coun­tries, In­dia par­tic­u­larly, have been known to in­flu­ence trends in the West. Stylists across the globe ex­change notes on cuts, colours and styles to give their so­phis­ti­cated cus­tomers an in vogue look. Tak­ing a cue from this com­min­gling of in­flu­ences, we bring you the ‘East meets West’ is­sue of .

You will find styles that can change your look dra­mat­i­cally in our fea­ture Styles across the seas. We in­vite you to join in the colour fest as we present to you our favourite hues to flaunt this sea­son in Edgier is classier.
