The Best Way To Pick A New Hairstyle

In Hair Products, Hair Tips, Hair Trends, Hairstyles on June 7, 2011 at 12:13 am

The Best Way To Pick A New Hairstyle. When it comes to choosing a new hairstyle there are so many choices. From color, highlights, layers and even a new cut.  One of the best things about looking for a new hair style is that there are numerous options to choose from. You can always start of simple by simply changing the color of your hair or you might want to add some highlights or try putting bangs in your hand and there is also a lot more to choose from as well. From adding layers to letting the hair grow longer to increasing the thickness of your hair and extending the hair there are numerous new hair style options worth considering.   Today, the new trend that is sweeping a lot of women over is going in for a complete makeover and there are even TV shows such as ABC Extreme Makeover that shows how a makeover is affected and how changes can make or break your appearance. You may have also heard of an excellent hair stylist who goes by the name of Gia Wood who operates out of Dallas Texas (Salon D) and she is a well known specialist in makeovers as well as extending the hair.

Typically, people seek the services of hair stylists such as Wood because their previous experience with a new hair style has gone awry. A hair stylist that lacks enough experience can easily mess up your hair and by not giving your new hair style enough thought before proceeding further will lead you into the portals of Salon D and Gia Wood looking for solution to your hair style woes.

Color correction is a major part of a new hair style and it is something that can take the form of highlights or gloss or color and obviously will also include getting a new haircut and better makeup (in the case of women). A typical such new hair style could take about four hours to perform; so, makes sure to take the day off when getting this kind of new hair style.

A successful new hair style really depends on the experience that the hair stylist has and so, before you choose your stylist makes sure to check their credentials and also ensure that you only entrust the care of your hair into the hands of someone you feel you can trust. Women that own long hair will naturally be more prone to choosing a long hair style though before choosing this kind of hair style is sure that it will in fact help to enhance your looks and which will also help to highlight your plus points while deemphasizing the less flattering aspects of your face.

Before choosing a particular new hair style it makes good sense to view photographs of former clients and to also be very specific about the type of new hair style you want. For example, in the case of bangs there are thousands of options to choose from and so, by showing the hair style about three separate photos of this hair style you will stand a better chance of getting the exact hair style you want and fewer chances of messing up your hair because of faulty instructions.

The Best Tips For Getting Long Healthy Hair

In Hair Tips, Long Hair Styles on February 9, 2011 at 9:09 pm

The Best Tips For Getting Long Healthy Hair. Lots of people want to have long, luxurious hair, but if it is not healthy, there is really no point. You need to make sure that you are aware of the different hair growth issues, including hair color, so you know about the different things that you can do to keep your hair healthy and strong and grow it out long.


Of all the different things that you should be on top of it for proper hair growth, there are three in particular that you want to be aware of, and these are: shampooing, conditioning, and trimming. When it comes to shampooing in particular, the most important thing you can do is avoid over shampooing.

If you want to get hair growth, you should stick to only shampooing two times a week at most, so that you are not stripping your hair of its natural oils. This will leave it looking dull and you will get split ends much faster as well.


Conditioning is going to be another important part to proper, healthy hair growth. It is important to make sure that you condition after every shampoo, but that you also deep condition at least once every two weeks. This will replenish your hair and leave it looking shiny and healthy. There are some conditioners, such as those by Fructis, which are specially formulated for long hair.

Make sure that you focus putting the conditioner on the ends of the hair, and although you do still want some up by your roots, it is the ends of your hair that really need the moisture.

When you deep condition your hair, you want to leave it on for about a half hour, and you will get the best results if you apply the conditioner on your hair and then wrap a towel, plastic bag, or both around your head while it is sitting in and soaking into your hair.


Even if you are aiming for long hair growth, you are still going to need to get haircuts. Maybe not haircuts so much as you are going to need regular trims. This will keep the split ends away and keep your hair long and healthy. Just make sure that you let the hairdresser know that you want to keep your long hair, so that they do not get confused and hack it all off.

As you can see from this, there is certainly a lot of work that needs to go into caring for long hair, but you can do it and have the long hair you always dreamed of.

Hair Trends What To Follow and What To Pass Up On

Hair Trends What To Follow and What To Pass Up On. When it comes to hair trends some will look good on you and others might make you stand out and not in a good way. So when it comes to trying a new hair trend always make sure it looks good on you before trying something new. One way to find out if a hair trend will look good on you is by asking your friends and showing them a picture before trying the look out. There are also countless hair sites that let you upload your picture and let you try different virtually.

This year there have been a few changes in popular hair styles and these have come almost without any notice. For those who look to celebrities and their hair-dos for inspiration the most popular hair style of the current year would no doubt be either that of Paris Hilton and her long hair or Farah Fasset. However, there are many women today who actually prefer to sport short hair and it seems that among the most popular hair styles of the year 2008 there are sure to be many that concern short hair.

Wrong Predictions

Most pundits had predicted long hair would be in this year but it seems that their predictions have turned out to be wrong. Nevertheless, the current trend in popular hair styles seems to be evenly spread between long and short hair styles. As far as long hair styles are concerned there are numerous Movie and Television stars, Runway stars and Print models that seem to prefer to let their hair grow long. Ditto Olympic Athletes! And, this is being copied by the everyday women.

The trouble with short hair styles is that it requires a certain kind of personality in order for this hair style to be more appealing. However, in the case of male popular hair styles it seems that most men today are opting for hair that is very wavy and perhaps even quit bushy. Some of the rough and tough guys are actually veering towards wearing their baldness as a style statement.

It seems that the Clark Kent look still finds favor among men and so is included among the most popular hair styles of the current year. It does seem however that the day of carefree rebellion and non-conformity have gone because none of the popular hair styles of today are catering to this kind of look.

To sum up, in the case of women the more popular hair styles of today are evenly split between long and short hairstyles. In the case of men, wavy, bushy as well as the bald look seem to be more favored. For a straight face the GQ look seems to be a popular hair style. Beauty of course is in the eyes of the beholder and so, whether or not you sport a popular hair style will not matter much to those who look beyond appearances.

Women will of course take extra pains to look as beautiful as possible but they would do well to look beyond today’s popular hair styles and concentrate instead on being them and to also make it a point to keep a smile on their face and not lose sleep over what is in and what is out of fashion.

How to Choose the Right Hair Color For Your Hair

In Hair Color, Hair Tips on June 9, 2010 at 1:27 am

How to Choose the Right Hair Color For Your Hair. There are some people who are just blessed and lucky and who can look great with any hair color, but for most of us we need to generally stick to one hair color or another to look our best. There are a few tips that you will want to be aware of and which will help you understand what hair color is going to work best for you.

Skin Tone

One of the first and most important things you need to do if you want to be able to decide what hair color to go with is to determine what skin tone you have. Is it an olive skin tone that you have, or is your skin more golden?

Cool and Warm Categories

It is easy to figure out whether you have a cool or warm skin tone. If you have eyes that are deep brown or black-brown, gray blue or dark blue, hazel with white, gray or blue flecks, and your hair is blue black, deepest coffee brown, medium ash brown, medium golden brown, or dishwater blonde, you are considered as being in the cool category.

If you have golden brown eyes, green, green blue or turquoise eyes, and your skin tone is brown with pink undertone, brown with golden undertone, pale with peach or gold undertones, or ruddy, then you are  most likely a warm skin tone.

If you have a warm skin tone, you should avoid dark hair colors such as jet black and black-blue because they will wash out your natural color, and depending on your skin tone and of course your preferences, you will find that dark warm browns, rich golden browns and auburn, warm gold and red highlights and golden blonde shades work best on you.

So if you have a warm skin tone you are going to want to go no darker than a dark warm brown, which still has warmth in it. If you go jet black your skin will look white, whereas people with a cool skin tone could get away with black hair.

Of course the easiest route is to head to a professional hair salon where there will be hair experts and who can tell you which hair color is going to work best on you. Remember, when you are choosing a color for your hair it is not just as easy as picking up any box of color and getting that exact color. Depending on the undertones of your hair, your skin tone, and other factors, it may end up being a completely different color.
