NOVEMBER 2017 ISSUE

WEDDING INSPIRATION
I’m fascinated by how digital innovation and technology can transform a whole industry. Almost every industry has been (or will be) impacted by new technology, and the wedding industry is no exception.

The wedding industry is a great example of an industry in transition, spurred on by digital innovation. Some of the market is stuck in the past with old ways of doing things, while a significant portion of the market has embraced new platforms and technology. Meanwhile, there are dozens of technology and media companies doing their best to push technology to new heights, as they imagine a future where most customers completely embrace digital.

On the digital side, Wedding sites and wedding apps will become more mobile phone optimized, and take advantage of proximity and location to offer personalized services that best fit the particular bride. The mobile phone will be the center of all of the planning activity, and it will handle it all with ease.
Hope you enjoy this bridal issue.

SPIRAL CURLS

Using A Flat Iron

HOW TO :

1  Shower and dry your hair till it is damp. You don’t need water dripping from your hair. It should be wet enough to style. If your hair is too wet the curls will loosen because of moisture.
2  Section your hair into small sectiopns. The smaller the section the tighter the curl will be. It is time consuming but will give amazing results. If you take big sections the curls will be loose.
3   Take a small section of your hair and twist your hair around the pencil. Make sure you don’t overlap the twist as it will ruin the final look.
4   Use a flat iron to and stamp the hair that is coiled around the pencil. Make sure the iron is not too hot. Don’t go over 270 degrees.

LOVE ON HANDS! MEHANDI DARKER

TIPS

1   Leave henna for a longer time: Wash off the henna after 7-8 hours. If you can afford to keep it longer, leave it for about 12 hours. Do not wash with water; instead scrape it out by rubbing your palms together till the dried henna falls off! Within a few hours you will see the rich colour develop.

2   Do wash your hands and feet: Before applying mehndi, do wash your hands and feet with soap and dry them properly. Any cream or oil on your skin will act as a barrier, and minimise the mehndi absorption into your skin.
3  Dab lemon sugar mixture couple of times: Boil some sugar in water and allow it to cool. Now decant this mixture into a bowl. Add a few drops of lemon juice and apply the lemon sugar mixture a couple of times on the henna once it has dried. The sugar keeps the mehndi in contact with the skin for deeper penetration, while the lemon juice acts as a catalyst for dye release and deep penetration of colour.
4  Get best results: To get the best results for your wedding day, it is suggested to apply mehndi at least 24 to 48 hours before it.
