When I planned to do Burgundy Hair Colour for the first time for Karvachauth

An Indian’s life revolves around these festivals as it gives us a chance to celebrate with our loved ones. And of all of them, Karvachauth is of utmost importance for the married ladies in North India. Indian festivals are incomplete without bright colours and Karvachauth is one festival that is synonymous with vibrant and bold colours, especially red. Right from the dress, to jewellery, accessories and footwear everything is colour coordinated. However, using the latest hair colour to complement our outfit rarely crosses our mind.

Do you know, following a hair colour trend is the best and easiest way to bring out the best of your personality and transform your look instantly? People generally avoid experimenting with their hair. The moment the hairstylist trims off an extra inch, we go into a tizzy. ‘What would people say’ has also killed a lot of hair transformation dreams.

Even with me, something or the other has always held me back and I had made peace with my natural hair. Getting Burgundy hair colour done still remained on my bucket list for a long long time. Somehow I have always been fascinated by ladies carrying this hair colour trend but could never muster up the courage to try it myself. Finally, on Karvachauth, I prepared myself for a new makeover. I thought of going beyond my comfort zone and trying something unique and different. And what better occasion than Karvachauth.

Last year, I got a dark burgundy dress for Karvachauth and was contemplating to do a Burgundy hair colour to compliment my dress. But I was still sceptical of trying the latest hair colour. Which shade of Burgundy hair colour should I choose? What if Burgundy hair colour doesn’t suit me? Professional hair colour would cost a bomb and if it doesn’t live up to my expectations, all the money would go down the drain and my look would be spoiled too. How to colour hair professionally? How to colour hair at home naturally? Which is a safe hair colour? A thousand questions and a million worries hovered in my mind. But they all were put to rest when my friend suggested Godrej Expert Hair Colour to me.

I wanted to give my crowning glory a makeover with the Burgundy hair colour. But the shade of Burgundy hair colour was still a matter of concern. There are so many pretty shades of Burgundy hair colour to choose from and it’s tough to find the one that would suit me. A hairstylist suggested that as a rule of thumb, the Burgundy hair colour that contains lots of red and violet looks best on women with a cool skin tone. However, shades of Burgundy hair colour that have more brown tones look beautiful on women with warm skin tones. Burgundy hair colour of Godrej Expert Hair colour is a very pretty shade that suits all the skin tones.
