Lakmé Salon Presented ‘Show Stopping Hair’ Collection Styled by Little Shilpa

Lakmé Salon Presented ‘Show Stopping Hair’ Collection Styled by Little Shilpa @ Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014
Mumbai, 25th August, 2014: Lakmé Salon brought hair to the forefront for the first time in the history of Lakmé Fashion Week through its ‘Show Stopping Hair’ collection. Styled by Little Shilpa, the line showcased a variety of head-turning avant-garde hairstyles that opened with ‘Metamorphosis’; a play of hair colors,  followed by ‘Illusion’; a tryst of hair lengths and textures and ended with the classic ‘Moulin Rouge’; bouffants and updos galore. Twelve models walked the ramp with the spotlight uniquely focused on their hair, punctuating Lakmé Salon’s belief ‘Hair is Fashion’.


The collection took its cues from three different spaces; postmodern Paris romantic Paris and Moulin Rouge. Cutting edge hairstyles, and mirror images of opposite hair lengths and textures constituted the first part of the show, ‘Metamorphosis’. ‘Illusion’ inspired by the ‘Northern lights’ phenomenon celebrated the confluence of hair colors. Finally, red crystal chains around hair cones, coiffures and red crystal nested mohawks recreated ‘Moulin Rouge’ for the show.

Choose Your Skin Serum Wisely with Lakme

All of us love shiny and happy skin and we never compromise on picking out what’s best to keep it that way! If you are skincare-savvy, there is no way you have missed out on buying the brand new skin serum available on the shelf.


With our constant on-the-go lifestyle, serums offer the perfect nourishment to protect your skin from dirt, pollution and UV rays.  Serums are lightweight, smoother in texture and also easy to use. You can pump just enough of it on your palm instead of being worried about pouring extra. It is also easier to carry serum when on the go as there is no fear of it spilling in your bag.

But before you make your choice of the perfect serum, let’s consider what makes them perfect for you!
Just like all your beautiful dresses demand the right accessories to make them perfect, all skin types require different type of serums to keep them flawless. Let the Lakmé expert guide you in making the right choice of serum to keep heads turning every time you step out:

To achieve radiant skin: Like bad hair days, we have bad skin days too. We all have days when we find our skin looking duller than usual. In order to avoid experiencing days like these, we need to use a serum which can give your skin its natural radiance without visiting a salon.
In order to solve your problem of dull skin, use a serum which contains vitamins that lightens and brightens your complexion from within. Try the Perfect Radiance serum by Lakmé which consists of luminizing Vitamins that make your skin more even and radiant and brighten it from within.

To achieve perfectly sculpted skin: Your skin is at its sculpted best when you are in your 20s. Women usually complain of their skin looking older for their age and are usually looking for a full proof solution to achieve perfectly sculpted skin. As skin matures over time, it begins to look dull and loses its elasticity and collagen support due to effects of the sun, environmental pollutants, and stress. Women have increasingly come to believe that the first step to gorgeous looking skin is that perfect Sculpted look. Use a serum that penetrates deeper into your skin giving you tight and younger looking skin.
Try the new Youth Infinity Skin firming Serum by Lakmé which has 10 benefits of a facial in 1. It is a daily deep action treatment to preserve your 20’s best youthful look and help you achieve perfectly sculpted skin.
You can get it here

To achieve glossy and well hydrated skin: Glossy skin is the new trend in skincare. Apart from moisturizing, your skin also needs to be well hydrated for it to look healthy, even and glossy. You need to use a water based serum in order to achieve glossy and hydrated skin.
Try the new Absolute Skin Gloss Reflection Serum by Lakmé, which contains mineral laden glacial water that helps you obtain seamlessly hydrated and glossy looking skin.

Monsoon Hair Care Tips from Dr.Punit Saraogi, CLEAR

Dr. Punit Saraogi, Clinical & Cosmetic Dermatologist & Trichologist, CLEAR

“Humid weather can increase secretion of oil & sweating from the scalp and the hair may also turn limp from the effects of increased humidity. Increased oil secretion may lead to dandruff for some. Along with the use of a good Antidandruff shampoo, proper intake of Vitamin, Minerals and Protein rich foods, regular oiling or conditioning, a good night’s sleep and keeping stress to a minimum is a good mantra for hair that is beautiful and well nourished. Also limit repeated chemical procedures like coloring and straightening as well as heat treatments like a hot blow dry & ironing. Most important of all is using a shampoo that not only cleanses but also has the goodness to take care of your hair conditions leaving it beautiful”.



There are many of hair problems that people may face during the monsoons owning to the humid and moist weather. Dandruff is one of the commonly diagnosed condition afflicting a large portion of the population. High humidity’s can contribute in leaving    the hair unmanageable and frizzy.
Frizzy hair is more prone to damage and thus can lead to increased hair breakage. Wash your hair regularly with a mild shampoo because your hair may become limp during monsoons. Shampooing can be done daily if your hair is exposed to rain water every day.

Tresemme Unveils Hair Spa Rejuvenation Range

Take a break from your stressful routine and rejuvenate with a hair spa, now in the comfort of your home 

Mumbai, 8th August 2014: New York fashionista’s favourite hair care brand - TRESemmé launches its latest salon innovation - the TRESemmé Hair Spa Rejuvenation range.


Driven by the belief that every woman has an intrinsic desire to look and feel gorgeous every day, the new range allows you to break your hectic routine, destress & rejuvenate. All this, with an indulgent hair spa experience by a shampoo and the first of its kind by TRESemmé, a massageable conditioner.
In today’s fast paced world, women deal with a lot of pressures like long working hours coupled with traveling amidst pollution etc, which leaves them stressed and worn out. This may result in loss of essential nutrients from their scalp, which could eventually leave their hair dry, frizzy and dull. A hair spa at a salon is what usually comes to the rescue – as the hair spa not only deeply moisturizes their hair but also rejuvenates them. However, this proposition is extremely time consuming.
