DIVO & Dermalogica host a Bombay Bloggers' Meet!

You know what’s better than blogging about fashion and beauty every single day? Attending a super fun event where you meet other people just as blog-crazy as you. 
So you understand when I say that the bloggers’ meet organized by Dermalogica India and DIVO Accessories was a fashion-tastic event that you would not want to miss.

“It all started with our love for blogs and the bloggers. We’ve always wanted to educate young women & show them basics about hairstyling. What better way to reach out to them than through our dear fashion & beauty bloggers” said CEO of DIVO Accessories, Ruchika Bhojwani.

The meet took off with an ‘Expert Speak’ session with the very talented hairstylist Akshata Honawar explaining to everyone how to figure out their face shape – round, heart, square, diamond or oval – and then how to choose the perfect hairstyle to go with it. A lifesaving tip if there ever was one, am I right?
Then followed an interactive group discussion between Akshata and the bloggers as she started giving hairstyling tips such as (prepare yourself for a shock, ladies) “oil is not the best route to healthy hair”. 

The bloggers listen, enraptured.

Next up was Avni Amlani, International Skin Expert and Consultant to Dermalogica India as she gave bloggers five basic tips to a healthy skincare routine.  And in case you’re curious, which I’m sure you are, the five steps are: Double cleanse, exfoliate, tone, moisturize and protect! She then followed up this session with a cornucopia of information about the best ways to look after skin while traveling. As she very aptly put, “Bloggers are always working hard to provide their readers valuable information but with this event we wanted them to be on the receiving end by giving expert tips on hair and skin care.”

The talented bloggers, doing what they do best.
Coffee Breaks and Experiences: Who said fashionistas only eat salads? Bloggers loaded up on sandwiches and mouth-wateringly delicious desserts as they got to know each other better. And then in true diva style they got their pictures taken at the DIVO photobooth before getting their complimentary hand massages at the Dermalogica Skin Bar.

Don't miss the lovely hair accessories!

DIY Hairstyling: Akshata Honawar picked five fun and quick hairstyles (shown below) that the attending bloggers could do in a jiffy without the help of their hairstylists, which had everyone from the long haired DIVO CEO Ruchika Bhojwani to the short haired Dermalogica’s PR executive Preeti Barot volunteering for a quick hairstyle transformation. Bloggers tried the 80’s retro hairstyle and also tried the braided hairstyle – all you beautiful ladies must try these two out at home too!
