Sebastians Gallery Jam session was back with a bang,
bringing together hairstyling powerhouses from across
the country for an innovative and creative gathering that
aimed to modernise the 2015 hair trends.

Text by Hena Desai

year after its successful and sensational
Sebastian Gallery Jam 2014, Wella
Professionals came back with their event for
the top Sebastian stylists from across the
country. This Jam combined training and
workshop sessions, making it a platform to showcase
international hair trends. These stylists got to witness an
International Hair Show and a chance to participate in a
competitive workshop that aimed at revolutionising the
trending looks for the coming year, shaping the future of
hairstyling yet again.

Spearheading this event was the acclaimed hairstylist

Diva Poulos, Sebastian International Design Artist and
celebrity hairstylist who flew down all the way from San
Francisco for the session. Through the course of the event,
Diva conducted a program on the current hairdressing
trends for the Sebastian stylists, bringing them up-to-
speed with the hottest hair trends. This session worked
out to be an inspirational one, helping the stylists push
their creative boundaries and helping them upgrade their
skills. I have been associated with Sebastian Professional

If Tay Tay does it, you HAVE to
do it too! This style may look
intimidating but trust us, it isnt
so! Divide your hair into two
sections and comb through.
Make two braids in your hair
and use some hairspray or
styling gel to hold the braids in
place. Hold one plait upwards,
pulling it across as you would
do with a hairband and fix it
on the side using bobby pins.
Pull the other braid over to
the opposite side and repeat
the process. Once pinned, the
braids should look like a plaited
hairband on your hair. If you
have bangs, iron them for a
sleek appearance like Taylors.
Finish off with hairspray to
make sure that the style lasts
you through the day, with no
need of constant fixing!

An age-old favourite, Mila Kunis shows
us how ponytails, when done right, can
be your best bet as a summer hairdo.
A messy ponytail, a sleek one, a high
or a low there is a ponytail variant
for absolutely any occasion! For this
sophisticated style, create a centre-
parting in your hair and backcomb the
crown section to give it a teased look.
Use some hairspray onto this teased
section to hold it in place before moving
on. Once the crown is set, pull your hair
back into a high ponytail and secure
it with a hair-tie. Use a strand of hair
from underneath the ponytail and wrap
it around the hair-tie so as to cover
it, adding that touch of sophistication
to the look. This style will take you
effortlessly from your office to a to a
late-night party so show some love to
the versatile ponytail for the summer!

38 May 2015
If youre not ready for a pixie or any
drastically short cut just yet, try a lob
(long bob) instead! This will give you a
feminine yet cool look, adding a fresh
twist to your look at the same time.
Styling a lob isnt a challenge either;
you can leave it unstyled and wavy,
straighten it or curl it, depending on
your mood! To emulate Katys famous
look, work a heat protectant serum
through your hair and blow-dry. Divide
your hair into small sections and using
a curling wand, curl each section.
Comb through your curled hair with
your fingers, breaking the curls apart
to create waves. Once youve covered
all your hair, spritz some hairspray on
to set the curls and youll be good to
go! If youre daring enough, colour
your hair in a bold shade as hers and
we assure you that all eyes will be on
you as you step out!

May 2015 39
When all else fails, trust the top knot
bun to be your trusted saviour! Neat and
hassle-free, this hairstyle will keep the
hair off your face as you jet-set through
the day. To get the style, blow-dry your
hair using a paddle brush till completely
dry, applying a thickening serum in your
hair as you proceed. Once dry, tie your
hair in a high ponytail and secure it with a
hair-tie. Twist and pull your hair into a bun,
knotting it at the top of your head. Once
youre satisfied with the look of the bun,
secure it using bobby pins. Tame flyaways
using hair gel or a strong-hold hairspray to
ensure a sleek output. This fierce hairstyle
will give you a confident and no-nonsense
appearance so do try it, especially for work
meetings in this sweltering heat.

40 May 2015
The best option to deal with the summer
heat is chopping off those long locks!
Short hair is THE raging trend to go for
currently, and we present Scarlett as the
perfect inspiration. Run to your stylist and
place your trust in their expertise to give
you a pixie or undercut style that suits
your face. You may choose to retain longer
side-swept bangs or even go in for a top
crop. If you have bangs, straighten them
using a hair iron. For the rest of your hair,
simply blow-dry it lightly and run some
styling gel or paste through your hair using
your fingers. Style it with your fingers till
you are satisfied with the final result. This
style isnt for the faint-hearted but if youre
willing to take the risk, we suggest you go
for it and transform yourself into an uber
cool diva right away!
Hot, sweaty summer days
demand messy hairstyles that
last through the day with little
maintenance like Blakes. This
look will keep you glam be
it at work or even at a party!
Just blow-dry your hair with a
diffuser, creating soft waves.
Create small fishtail braids
using small sections. Sweeping
all the hair to one side, pin
it up tight, knotting up the
ends of the loose hair and the
braids to hold them together.
Pull out a few strands of hair
and straighten them to frame
your face. Finish off with a
shine-enhancing hair spray to
hold the style in place. If you
plan to wear this style on a
night out, dont forget to jazz
it up by pinning a cute, blingy
accessory to your braid.

SHEFALI SAMDRIA speaks about
the three trending hairstyles
created by Lakm Salon that you
MUST try this year!
All Images Lakm Salon

akms trend mantra for 2015 has been
officially launched as Sculpt. In the same
vein, Lakm Salon further consolidated
this trend at the fashion week with
sculpted hairstyles and make-up that were
both avant-garde and contemporary at the same
time. Think Barcelona with its alluring architecture,
natural construction stones, twisted iron sculptures
and organic like shapes and you will be drawn
to these styles much like we were. Inspired by
contemporary architecture, Sculpt- a versatile trend,
works seamlessly across hair and make-up, and is
available at Lakm Salons across the country.

The chignon has travelled
a long way from ancient
Greece where it first added
glamour to Athenian women.
Traditionally, the chignon was
a smallish bun at the nape of
the neck. Lakm salon has
created its own dramatic
version of this classic low-key
style, inspired by the double
domes commonly seen in
Barcelona. Voluminous hair
sleekly styled in an up-do
that resembles a faux hat,
this style adds oodles of
oomph when needed. With a
sculpted saree gown, this can
even take you back to ancient
times as you make a queenly
entrance at soirees!

44 May 2015
The colour of the year deserves
its own dedicated style and this
geometrical piece of art is not for
the faint-hearted! The cascading
hair with abrupt yet sculpted layers
will add a note of Renaissance
modernism to any personality
irrespective of clothing or occasion.
Straightened or crimped, hair is
elevated to a statement rather than
an afterthought and the colour
takes the Sculpt philosophy to a
new stratosphere!

May 2015 45
Gold is no more an ornament
but a sentiment. Women
have used gold powder
and pigments for make-
up for a while now and
this style counts on subtly
shimmering pigments. With
this look, bold, precise and
high-definition is back in
vogue, and the sculpt look
if applied right, can deliver
this to perfection. Not only
does it accentuate dominant
features like high cheekbones
and striking eyes, it defines
and highlights sharper facial
features, thereby reinstating
make-up as an art form.

Trying to fix the section between your
chemically treated hair and the fresh
growth but failing miserably? POOJA
RAISINGHANI is here to rescue you!

f the multiple things that have
teamed up to make our lives a little
more better and convenient, the
shampoo and conditioner combo is
arguably the best. Although, the conditioner is
fairly new and doesnt really get enough credit,
its a shame to not acknowledge its importance
especially when youre recovering from all the
chemicals you splashed over yourself!

Colouring, rebonding and smoothening are

scribbled eloquently on the list of endless
attempts for making your tresses manageable,
vibrant and trendy. They all tend to suck the
life out of your hair if you fail to maintain a
nourishing routine. That is reflected on the
health of the new batch of hair that peeps
out the roots. We agree that dealing with the
transitioning process is the worst phase ever.
Also, its always wise to choose to wait for
your natural hair to completely grow
back rather than risking a dramatic
chopped off look. Since, shampooing
your hair everyday can adversely
damage your hair; condition even
without washing, it is a viable option
to escape dull hair.

One of the biggest challenges is to


prevent breakage; the most brittle

zone is where the fresh growth
meets the chemically treated hair.
Berinas Protein Conditioner is
specially enriched with goodness of
proteins that not only nourishes hair
and refurbishes dead locks but also
repairs and restores them completely.
The oil-free formulation acts as a
moisturizer and makes hair silky
smooth. The protein in the conditioner
gets easily absorbed by hair, thereby
nurturing them completely. Regularly
use this innovative hair mask to make
your tresses dramatically stronger,
healthier, smooth and shiny!

womans body goes through multiple physiological, hormonal
and glandular changes during and after pregnancy. The hormonal
activity usually benefits the hair during pregnancy, because of
higher estrogen levels. Many women recollect that their hair
looked thicker and shinier during this time. Actually, hair normally
grows in three phases: growth, resting and shedding. But, during pregnancy,
due to higher estrogen levels, the growth and resting phases become longer
and the hair falls less. It also looks healthy and thick. Good nutrition, along with
vitamin and mineral supplements also improves the look of the hair. Of course,

Anyone can make it work
Yes, anyone! Long, short, wavy, fine or thickly-tressed
ladies can pull it off! Think of the trend as the sleekest,
healthiest version of your own hair.

And for curly girlies

This look totally works for curls too, but if you want to
smooth them out, try applying a smoothing balm on
freshly-washed, damp hair before blow-drying. Blow-dry
your hair straight with a paddle brush for the sleekest
finish (if you dry small enough sections at a time, you
shouldnt need to break out the straighteners).

It cuts out unnecessary products

No time? No problem!

Theres nowhere to hide! Just like the no make-up
trend, this look really does expose flaws, so you need
to keep your mane in tip-top condition. That means
regular trims, deep-conditioning treatments and
moisture masks!

eye spy

Kohl is almost primeval, the smoky eye
is almost a clich. Then FAT MU went
ahead and created a smudged out,
smoky eye in grey hues that spread out
towards the temples like a fish fin. The
combination with the mohawk braid and
bodycon silhouette was just delectable.

SHEFALI SAMDRIA presents three eye make-up innovations from
the Lakm Fashion Week that will soon be the trends to follow!

ince ancient times, eye make-up has been the focal
point of beauty and its pursuit from gemstones ground
for Cleopatras eye-lids to the home-made kohl that
remind you of your grandmother. Indian make-up has
thus far steered away from intense experimentation
when it comes to the eyes. You saw the same boring eye-liner/kohl
look everywhere, until Natasha Nischol of FAT MU gave three very
unique looks that had everyone raving!

Think beaten gold leaves on Indian
sweets seen at weddings and festivals.
An almost identical look was created
at the Raghavendra Rathore show
for his bridal collection. Luminiscent
bronze cheekbones and pale pinkish

Stay away from layers upon layers of
make-up in the summer days. Skip
the heavy foundation and switch to
BB creams instead. In case you are in
dire need of coverage, opt for silicone-

you a natural, smudge-proof finish.

For a Mommy
skin care

Makeover DR. VARUN KATYAL shares his

expert advice for mommies
who wish to bounce back to
their pre-pregnancy skin!

ave you ever
why the
word busy
ends up in
front of the word mom
most of the time? With
small kids and a hectic
pace, moms do come up
with effective ways to
manage time but things
like skin care and beauty
issues take a back seat at
times. Finding the time
for self-maintenance
can be really challenging
but worry not, here are
some tips that you lovely
moms can follow under
the supervision of a
dermatologist to manage
two common maternal
beauty concerns
and cellulite.

Do you feel you have developed dark spots or dark
patches on your skin? These may be because of a
condition termed as hyperpigmentation. So, how
can you get rid of hyperpigmentation?

What is Hyperpigmentation?
This condition is caused by over activity of skin
cells called melanocytes resulting in increased
production of melanin, the substance that gives our
skin colour. Factors like sun exposure, hormones,
certain illnesses and medications, genetics, chronic
inflammation, allergies, heat, etc. alone or in
combination lead to hyperpigmentation.

If you feel you have developed hyperpigmentation,

you must consult a dermatologist as soon as
possible for proper diagnosis and treatment.

May 2015 99
The statement Prevention is better than cure applies in
case of hyperpigmentation to a very large extent. The tips
listed below should help you combat it:

Sun Protection Use a good broad-spectrum sunscreen

with SPF of at least 30 everyday. Apply your sunscreen
liberally 20 to 30 minutes before going out and reapply it
every two hours.

Dress to protect
Lightweight, cotton clothes along with a cap, scarf or
broad-brimmed hat and sunglasses act as shields from
harmful UV rays.

Practice an appropriate skin care regimen

Use an antioxidant cream or serum in the morning to fight
free radical damage and a cream or serum containing
peptides, alpha hydroxy acids or retinol at night to
gently exfoliate the skin and also help increase collagen

Exfoliate regularly
Sweep away the top layer of the skin and remove excess
pigmentation by using a chemical, manual or fruit enzyme
exfoliator which is effective as well as gentle on the skin,
once a week.

Your dermatologist can help you determine
which treatment would best suit your needs.
Options may involve the use of bleaching
creams or topical skin lightening creams,
clinical procedures or a change in your skin
care routine and lifestyle. The best treatment
however can only be determined by your

Clinical procedures
The clinic treatments for hyperpigmentation
can be Micro-Dermabrasion, superficial
chemical peels, Photofacial or IPL Therapy
and some laser treatments. Deeper peels or
laser peels are usually not recommended for
treatment of hyperpigmentation.

Foods rich in antioxidants like berries, papaya,
watermelon, tomato, soybeans, nuts, etc.
are helpful in protection from UV rays. Make
sure you also take vitamin and mineral
supplements after consulting your doctor.

100 May 2015

Add some plain oatmeal to
unflavored yogurt and apply the
mixture on to the affected part
of the skin. Wash the mixture off
after 20 minutes with cold water.
Some tomato juice could also be
added to this mixture to increase
its effectiveness.
Grind five almonds and mix with 1
teaspoon of fresh cream and a few
drops of lemon juice. Apply this
paste to the face and neck. Leave
on for about fifteen minutes.
Potato has natural bleaching
properties. Cut a potato into thin
slices and place them on the
affected area for 20 to 30 minutes.
Mint works wonders in lightening
the skin tone and therefore, the
paste of freshly ground mint leaves
should be applied on to the skin
for around 15 to 20 minutes, before
being rinsed off.

Did you know that your body has both
negatively and positively charged elements
that form its electric component?

Ions, as they are termed, are charged

particles that aid in the energetic processes
of the body. When the flow of positive ions
increases in the body, the immune system
becomes weak, sluggish and vulnerable. The
bodys metabolism slows, which can cause
toxins and waste to build up in the various
systems of the body, causing weight gain,
diseases and cellulite. Positive ions help
facilitate premature ageing.

There are various sources where our body

picks up these positive ions, such as:

Breathe in the soothing scent of vetiver. Savour its cooling
benefits inside-out to beat the heat, says BRINDA GILL!

n this hot climate, some
prefer to build Kas-kanays or
neat houses made of straw or

a reservoir of water that the servants

Bernier, French traveller and personal
physician to the Mughal Emperor in
the mid-17th century, of the cooling
attributes of khus!

Native to India, vetiver locally known

as khus, is a tall perennial grass with a
long and thick intricate root system.
The extract of the roots have a lovely
fragrance, cooling effect and wellness
attributes. These are also present
in the ingredients of perfumes, skin
products and beverages. Historical
texts have references to vetiver
perfumes being used by royalty, and
Ayurvedic texts refer to it as Sugandi-
mulaka or sweet smelling roots and
Sita-mulaka or soothing roots. In fact,
its fragrance is so indelibly etched in
the psyche that often just a whiff of
vetiver instantly creates a feeling of
freshness and calmness!
