Season’s most daring trend, Neon by Bhavya Chawla, Fashion Stylist, Voonik.com

Neon is this season’s biggest trend. This eye catching trend of Neons can be seen everywhere, from apparels, shoes, bags to even as nail paints, lip colors etc. Here’s a list of dos and don’ts of the NEON trend:

Neon, not for everyone

NEON seems a little scary to wear. You have to choose the color that looks good on you and style them properly. Less is more! You don't have to wear all neon or people may get a headache. Lesser doses create a bigger impact and will make you look chic, trendy and stylish.

Match your neons

One color of Neon can work well and look great with another neon if you do it right.  The best way to do this is by wearing smaller doses and letting the attention graduate from being more dominant to lesser dominant. For example, wearing a top with little neon on it and teaming it with a hairband, bag or sandals in contrast neon.

Avoid doing all neons

White or beige wardrobe neutral colors blend very well and can look great with neon because it gives a good background for the neon. Wear some neon colored top with white or beige pants or vice versa.

Go for n eon accessories

Match your neon green nail polish to your neon green striped top. Get some neon sling bags, shoes with some bright stripes on them or even some neon leggings. In fact, accessories are the better way than the clothing to try the daring trend and adapt it gradually.

Feel neon

Neon means fluorescent, bright and happy. If you are going to wear neon, you will instantly feel energetic and happy.

Most importantly, be confident and smile.

Tips by Deepika Padukone to feel gorgeous this monsoon

You may follow a special regime to keep your crowning glory in the best of health, but sometimes the best behaved hair can also misbehave due to humidity and the wet season. While the monsoons bring a host of hair and skin woes, your wardrobe too can give you a cold! Follow these simple tips from Deepika Padukone and be rest assured to look as gorgeous as ever.

Mane Check
Gear up well in advance to keep your hair protected in the monsoons. With the right hair care regime in place, your hair can look lustrous and stylish, even in this weather. Since my work involves lot of travelling and exposure to extreme climatic conditions, it ends up taking toll on my hair. I indulge my hair with regular ‘Tender Coconut Hair Oil’ massages. This helps me fight split-ends, dryness and frizz.

Pose Pretty
My ideal look for the monsoons is tying my hair up in a messy ponytail, it’s easy and practical, yet stylish.

Style Fix
The fabrics I enjoy wearing   the most during the monsoons are cotton and linen. I experiment with floral prints and pastel shades.  I would ideally keep the accessories simple with a pair of fun optical frames, and a watch.

As I travel a lot, when I m in Mumbai I prefer home cooked meals .My meals are balanced and I indulge in some dessert every now and then. Also, its important to keep yourself hydrated as much as possible.

Simple tips by gorgeous Nargis Fakhri this monsoon

The peculiar weather conditions during the monsoons make it a tricky time to maintain a beautiful appearance. While the humidity takes a toll on your hair, skin and wardrobe, the seasonal winds can give you a cold! The stunning Nargis Fakhri shares tips from her daily routine during monsoons, to help you cope with the wet spell and maintain your pretty-self.

Hair care: I need a beauty regime that guarantees results. In monsoons my hair become unmanageable as the moisture in the air swells up the hair. I get the ultimate conditioning benefit by a 20 minutes deep conditioning treatment with hot coconut based hair oil. It works wonders for my tresses. It is also important to keep your scalp dry during monsoons as dampness leads to hair fall. I always try to carry an umbrella, while I step out in rains to ensure my hair isn’t exposed to the rain water.

Skin care: Cleansing and moisturising the skin is very important during monsoons. All my skincare products are light so as to allow my skin to breathe in the humid weather. I never skip moisturising my skin with a natural ingredients based moisturiser. This beauty ritual is important in all seasons. Last but not the least, drinking plenty of water is always a good idea as it keeps skin hydrated and supple.

Monsoon wear: Clothes made of any light fabric, which can be dried easily are perfect for monsoons. Cottons are my personal favourite. I avoid wearing light coloured clothes as getting rid of mud stains can be a task. Plus, carrying a napkin always comes in handy, if you ever receive an unexpected splash!

Healthy diet: The common cold and flu become a bit too common during monsoons. Herbal tea keeps me warm and strengthens my immune system.  Seasonal fruits, such as cherries and litchees are delicious and nutritious at the same time. Also, I try to avoid eating out and carry home cooked meals to my shoots. During monsoons one can find vegetable preparations in my tiffin and hot soups too!

Monsoon tips by Dr. Aparna Santhanam

Getting wet in the rains cannot be avoided all the time, but what you can avoid is the dryness and hair fall caused due to the same. Follow a ritual of 20 minutes deep conditioning treatment with hot coconut based hair oil this monsoon. This is a perfect solution to fight against the friziness and limpness caused due to the increased moisture in the air

Avoid getting any kind of chemical treatments on your hair during monsoons. The chemicals used on your hair react adversely to the rain water leading to severe damage

Since hair is made of protein, ensure that you maintain a balanced protein diet. A portion of good seasonal fruits, green leafy vegetables, cereals and coconut water in your diet, must be included.

Try and pull together your hair in a soft band rather than using any metallic clips as they tend to break your hair.

Once in a week, treat your hair with some natural ingredients. Mix two eggs, curd, juice of half lemon and few drops of honey and spread it evenly in your hair, starting from root to tip. Wash it off after half an hour, to get a smooth and manageable texture.
