Most are simple to do, some you might need the help of a professional to style to perfection.   The artificial flowers Flowers are a must in every traditional do, but the problem with flowers is that they wilt easily and your glorious hair falls apart too soon for comfort. The solution? Artificial flowers. Which used artistically, can transform a simple braid into a thing of beauty embracing both the traditional and the chic.

Being selfish is a virtue

Being selfish is a virtue

Love begins with you This is the philosophy of Enrich Salons. And this is what differentiates Enrich from other salons. Enrich does not simply work from the outside, but tries to simply enhance the beauty that lies within each person. It also recognises beauty as being the manifestation of love. Not only in the eyes of the beholder but love for yourself for being yourself. Here is one of the many examples of how different people spread love differently and have their own brand of inner beauty.   “Wear your own oxygen mask before helping others” Every time we hear the flight attendant say that during the routine safety check speech, we seem to cringe because of some things that have been ingrained in us since we were small. Not to be selfish for example. But the flight attendant’s order makes complete sense because unless you are okay yourself, how on earth will you be even physically able to help others? The mistake we make in life is by thinking that being selfish is the same as being self centred. They are two entirely different things, and while being the latter can only make you undesirable, being the former can make you beautiful in a very unique kind of way. Let us find out how.   Selfish versus self centred A self centred person unfortunately thinks only about how his or her immediate surroundings will benefit himself or herself right there and then, and his or her goal is to take every micro step towards self satisfaction regardless of how it may affect others. And these steps are usually taken towards very superficial goals like physical comfort or material asset. A selfish person on the other hand, is someone who gives importance to understanding his or her own mind and giving it what it needs, in order to be a more confident and content person, who can then have a better perspective about how he or she can do good to someone else. So while a self centred person is constantly dissatisfied, a selfish person is someone who attains self satisfaction and better understanding of oneself from within.   Be selfish. Be beautiful. Know yourself. Get in touch with the inner you. Realise what you are worth and give yourself your due. Do not take yourself for granted ever. Do not be scared in your journey to finding yourself because, only after you have dedicated that selfish time to realising your true self worth, can you emerge as a beautiful person who knows what he or she wants and can infect people with your confidence and goodwill.   Is...

Beauty is the opposite of perfection, it is about confidence charisma and character

Love begins with you This is the philosophy of Enrich Salons. And this is what differentiates Enrich from other salons. Enrich does not simply work from the outside, but tries to simply enhance the beauty that lies within each person. It also recognises beauty as being the manifestation of love. Not only in the eyes of the beholder but love for yourself for being yourself. Here is one of the many examples of how different people spread love differently and have their own brand of inner beauty. Beauty in imperfection There is a beautiful woman with flawless skin. And then there is the same woman with a tiny at the corner of her lips. There is a lovely smile. Then there is the same smile with a slight imperfection in the teeth that one would die for. Beauty is not about perfection all the time. Sometimes, or rather at most times, it is something more. Which could be about a flaw. Which could also be about a beauty that is not just skin deep. It could be about confidence, charisma and character. What is confidence, charisma and character in a woman? It is about being strong-willed as a person, and not being ashamed to show it. And I don’t mean it in a bravado way. I mean living, breathing, and breathing that conviction that exudes positivity. So it might not always be on the face, but has to be read into in between the lines of her everyday behaviour. This manifests itself into beauty because a woman who has confidence, charisma and character, glows with these virtues. A glow more real and deep than a cosmetic can give you. A cream can only help enhance this glow.   How to identify such a woman in a crowd? While it is easy to spot someone with these traits among people you know because you know the strength in their belief and being, how do you make out someone has these traits amongst people you don’t know? In her instant smile that is driven by confidence. Confidence usually makes a woman more successful in what she is doing. Which in turn makes her a happier person. And this in turn manifests itself into a beautiful smile. You can also make these traits out in how she carries herself. A confident woman does not need to be the best turned out, nor does she have to practice the cat walk. She will stride into a room and eyes will turn as will hearts. She will attract people, for no obvious reason that one will immediately be able to pin point. Let us...

Intelligence will always be beautiful

Intelligence will always be beautiful

Love begins with you This is the philosophy of Enrich Salons. And this is what differentiates Enrich from other salons. Enrich does not simply work from the outside, but tries to simply enhance the beauty that lies within each person. It also recognises beauty as being the manifestation of love. Not only in the eyes of the beholder but love for yourself for being yourself. Here is one of the many examples of how different people spread love differently and have their own brand of inner beauty.   Why is intelligence so beautiful? Beauty, in the conventional sense of the term, fades over time. But inner beauty does not. Inner beauty comes in many forms, of which one is intelligence. With time, intelligence can only increase and never fade. It can only bloom to the ultimate form of beauty, wisdom. Intelligence is also a tool that one can use to one’s own benefit to overcome negative situations and to solve daily problems. This makes one happier. And a happier person is always more beautiful. Again, while conventional beauty can only hold another’s interest for so long, intelligence makes a person more and more attractive to others as they get to know each other better. Intelligence makes a person a better human being because he or she is intelligent enough to not only want to help other people but to know how to help best. Why does intelligence attract? Would you believe there is actually a scientific biological reason behind this? It is nature’s way to wire people’s brains so that people are more attracted to intelligent people than to those who are not. This is to ensure that the human gene continues into the next generation more evolved, more intelligent, more advanced and healthier. Simply put, one may be socially programmed to date a physically good looking woman, but at the same time he will be wired to marry an intelligent one so that their offspring are intelligent and not just superficially beautiful.   Examples galore There are endless number of people who come to mind who have fascinated and attracted us with their intelligence manifested in some way or the other. There have been scientists who have changed the world. There have been poets who have taught us the language of dreams. There have been leaders who have led in the right direction. And then there have been the ones who have turned their intelligence into wit and humour and made us smile and laugh even on an otherwise bitter day. Here is one example of one such person who shares her intelligence with us to make us...

Beauty is what happens when you are being yourself

Love begins with you This is the philosophy of Enrich Salons. And this is what differentiates Enrich from other salons. Enrich does not simply work from the outside, but tries to simply enhance the beauty that lies within each person. It also recognises beauty as being the manifestation of love. Not only in the eyes of the beholder but love for yourself for being yourself. Here is one of the many examples of how different people spread love differently and have their own brand of inner beauty.   Be yourself first. Beauty will automatically follow. To be beautiful, you must feel beautiful. In order to feel beautiful you have lead a fulfilling and liberating life. When you are satisfied and comfortable with your own self, it shows as confidence. One of the most strong avatars of beauty. When one has attained this state of being, things fall into place in life easier because one has one’s priorities in place, and mistakes are harder to make. So happiness is for the taking and a happier person is a more beautiful person.   What is the mantra to help you be yourself? Live by your own rules and not by those of others. Else you will spend a lifetime conforming and trying to please the world. Which is an absolutely unattainable goal. And more often than not, these standards are not worth conforming to any way. So the first thing you need is a conviction that what you believe in is worth believing in, and the second is an immense amount of courage to stand up for it. There will be many to criticise you, but most criticism will arise from jealousy about not having the courage to be non conformists themselves. But there will be many more who will love, adulate and admire. Let us look at one example who fits the bill to the tee.   Kangana Ranaut Kangana Ranaut is known to be one of the most beautiful, fashionable and stylish celebrities in India today.
