Wedding brides

New Delhi, Nov 15: Beat the chill on your wedding day with style. Go for full sleeve silhouettes and blouses in raw silks and other thick fabrics like velvet, suggest experts.

Designers Osman Sajida and Anita Ojha have given a few inputs:

* Long chudidar sleeves not only look extremely elegant, but they also aesthetically cover your arms, and keep them warm. Make all your ethnic wear like saris, salwar kameez, anarkalis or lehenga in full sleeves.

* Embellished blouses in velvet and in other thick fabrics can definitely keep you warm while making heads turn. Blouses either in short lehenga with full sleeves or jacket design with high neck will look good.

* Layering is another way to go. Not only does layering dupattas look stunning, it actually blocks out the chilly wind and keeps you warm.

* Choose warm fabrics. Rather than opting for net or sheer fabrics, it’s best to choose warm fabrics like velvet or silk for your winter wedding. The best thing is that the velvet lehenga choli and silk lehenga choli are back in fashion.

* Just like outfits, even footwear is crucial. Wear the slightly high booties to ensure your feet still look gorgeous without making you freeze.

* Opt for an odhani (wrap) in velvet with kundan embroidery on it and beautiful borders. If you have a dupatta on your head, then consider taking a second drape with an odhani hung loosely across your blouse.

* Pick the best bling from your wardrobe and accessorise it appropriately with your outfit. This year in the winter bridal trends, jewellery should not be too heavy. You can wear a sleek neck piece, a nath, earrings and a simple maang tika, and keep the jewellery to the minimum and let your bridal outfit do the talking.

New Delhi, Sep 22: Jewellery choices of the modern-day bride have evolved over the years. Polki or uncut diamonds are the most popular type of jewellery for the ‘pheras’ because of the antiquity and royalty it offers, say experts.

Rohan Sharma, Director of RK Jewellers-South Extension-2, and Shehzad Zaveri, Creative Director of Minawala, have listed tips that help in choosing the right polki jewellery for different bridal looks:

* A small jewellery piece of polki is enough to complete your look. With the changing trends, even in a big fat wedding, brides skip wearing heavy jewellery and have shifted to wearing pastel or light colours on their D-day. Now, it is all about a bride opting for lighter ensembles where she’s free to dance, twirl and hang out with her friends. A polki choker with small earrings and mang tika can make you look equally gorgeous.

* The colour of your lehenga and your chosen bridal jewellery should be in sync with each other. Navratan polki necklace has multi-coloured stone work that go with pastel pink, white and golden trousseau. The bright coloured stones with polki designs are perfect to add colours with your subtle colour outfit.

* A heavy choker or long Raani haars in polki are the perfect styles for a traditional look. A polki necklace studded with south sea pearls, emeralds and rubies is a great choice to complement the lehenga. A bride can pair them with jhumkas, head cover mang tika and nath to complete the look.

* An uncut polki with pearl or kundan work necklace is the right mix for getting a regal look. If you want to steer away from the traditional look, opt for a detachable multi-layered polki necklace that can be worn on lehenga shades like pastel pink, green, gold and blue. You can create a balance by pairing it with over-sized studs or go all out with heavy chandbalis in polka and pearls.

Facial hair transplants the new trend for 21st-century men

Published

Facial hair among men has recently gained popularity in mainstream fashion. With sports and entertainment celebrities sporting the beard, the facial fuzz has become the new swag quotient of the metrosexual man. While the plangent voice with a chiselled body and bushy beard had always been observed as signs of masculinity, social dominance, age and attractiveness, it’s only recently that the metrosexual man has re-discovered the charisma of the fuzz! This has led to the aspirational value of the beard, especially among those who are not sufficiently blessed with the generous crop of facial hair. Enter the new trend in male grooming – The facial hair transplant surgery. With a promise for a natural looking beard, an increasing number of men are turning to this to enhance or restore their facial hair.

Dr Vinod Sonawane,Hair Transplant Surgeon and Managing Director at Bloom Hair Transplant said What are the reasons behind men opting for the transplant: “Beard transplants are a boon to those who are suffering from age, hormone or stress-related issues, impacting their hair growth. In a society where we have the complex perspective of attractiveness towards men with a full beard, with both Indian (Ranveer Singh) and International stars (Nick Jonas), Sports celebrities (Virat Kohli and David Beckham) and Royals and politicians (Prince Harry and Narendra Modi) have kept high standards of masculine charisma. Decoding some of the reasons why facial hair transplant is popular and here to stay for the tall, dark handsome half of the population.”

· Rebuilding self-image after an accident or damage, for e.g. post burns, acne, scars in an accident etc.

· Genetic problems that run in families. If there is a history of some close family member having the condition, it is likely for other members to develop the condition of baldness in the beard area.

· Depression, anxiety, extreme stress and hormonal issues cause bald patches and that leads to hair loss or scanty growth, leading to beard transplant as a lucrative option

Beard hair transplant is a fast-catching trend in India -How the transplant is done:

Sonawane said, “Beard hair transplant, like the other transplants, is a meticulous surgical procedure handled only by professional surgeons. One needs to understand the need and the expectation of the patient and then do the grafting to create a natural looking pattern which fits face proportion, thus enhancing the personality.”

Dr said, “The beard transplant is done mostly by the Follicular Unit Extraction(FUE) technique, where a small group of hair is extracted one by one from a donor site. For the transplant, hair is typically taken from the side or back of the head where it grows finer and is less prone to balding. Transplanted facial hair falls out after roughly 2 weeks, but regrows around 3 months later and can then be treated as natural facial hair.”
