Cosmopolitan Magazine { January 2014 } & Behind the Scenes

When Cosmo asked me if I wanted to color my hair and get a makeover, I could have never imagined myself saying no. As long as they didn’t have peacock hair color on their agenda. Which they didn’t. The entire process took place at Affinity Salon at Green Park, New Delhi where Nikhil Sharma, the Sebastian Design artist colored my hair with just a slight tinge of auburn and gave me some killer highlights using Wella products.

Here’s a look at the Jan issue with the makeover pics. Its on page 110 for those who have bought the issue for themselves.
