The Tousled Tresses!!

A very wise man once said that “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… rather it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”  And that people is my favourite quote in life. Every now and then life gives you so many ups and down that sometimes all you can do is just look at the silver lining and then go about chasing your dreams. Wow. This actually seems a sound advice.

Relax. This is not a new direction of the blog. So, let’s just get back to the issue at hand. I am very sure that by now you must have noticed that the rainy season has officially begun.  The rain, as pretty as it is, does not take too kindly to the fashion world. In fact, sometimes it feels like it’s going out of its way to make us look defunct.

Now I don’t know about you, but my biggest problem in this season is my hair. No matter what I do, the increased humidity gives it a mind of its own and that too a highly deviant one.  I may wash it every day or maybe use a dry shampoo or even put it on fire…. It’s gonna do what it wants.

And that’s precisely why I am picking up the topic of the latest hair trends. All of us have bad hair days, some of us choose to put a bandana over it and some of us just go along. And we may be able to redeem ourselves on other days; but our poor celebrities can’t really afford to do so.

They need to be on the top of their game 24*7 or just die trying. And so they have very slyly devised trends which do give them a bit of breathing space. And kudos to them, we can just take a leaf out of their hair books and play around with it. and play we must because the newest trends in braids are just breath-taking.

On a bad hair day (like the one I am having today) simply sweep all your hair to one side and just head along with a messy braid, now the kind of braid you want to do is on you. You can choose from a fish tail braid or a Heidi braid, or a four/ five strand braid or a modern milkmaid braid or even go for an elegant yet very chic braid-bun hair-do. The kind of hairstyle you want to go adorn would depend on how crisp your attire is.

As there are a number of braid styles out there, choosing the one which goes well is a challenge as you would be tempted to try the most wackiest one. But just like wearing an LBD to an office meeting is a crime so is wearing the wrong braid. I suggest go with a messy braid when you are out shopping or even for a date, pair is with some tank top and cut-up jeans for the former and some nice pair of heels and a modern top for the latter to give yourself that Avant-grade chic look. But when it comes to work…. Ladies, classic and clean is the only way to go. For office, team up you crisp blouse and that pencil trouser with a classic side swept braid or a braid bun or if you are too much in love with a fish tail braid then make it as neat as you possibly can.

So, what are you waiting for … go play.

Ciao for now. Be Beautiful…… Be you!!!!
