Short Hairstyles for the Summer

Tue, 10 Aug 2010 17:55:00 +0000

Ah, summer has arrived and it is time to tan and enjoy the beach for those lucky enough to be close enough to the ocean. Well everyone should enjoy summer anyways. With summer comes heat, and with heat comes our desire to wear less or thinner clothing. The same idea applies to our hair. For those of you who have not shed the long locks for shorter strands during the summer months, definitely try it once in your life. My experience was sensational as I decided to clip off my hair, granted it wasn't long but medium length. The experience was good as it felt totally different and it gave my whole attitude a different push during those summer seasons. I came to find that most of my summer cloths matched well with my new short hairstyle. Probably because the hairstyle I chose to copy was from Charlize Theron in many of her ads.

Why should you do as I did you ask? Well to make it simple, a woman who has not tried a short hairstyle will not truly appreciate her hair as much if she hasn't cut it short. I am not saying go cut it super short but rather a short length that is in a comfortable zone. Right off, there should be a renewing feeling because it feels totally different not to have as much hair. Second shorter hair is much easier to maintain and hairstyles do not take as much effort. Coloring and highlighting is also much easier. There are also a good variety of short hairstyles great for summer weather and clothing.

What better than a new short hairstyle to go with those shorts and skirts. Maybe you have never imagined a different look to go along with your wardrobe, but if you did it would greatly surprise you how some clothing just combines so well with a different hairstyles and creates a totally unique look.

Celebrities are great measuring points for most of us who have similar features because short hairstyles tend to bring out a lot of facial features. First lets look at some everyday short hairstyles.

Lets look at my short hairstyle which is a copy of Charlize Theron's style. I chose this short hairstyle because I have a similar facial shape and the hairstyle seemed to be versatile in that I can add curls, play with the bangs, and even do cute tie backs. It is a very good choice to start off with because it is not too short but gives a similar different experience.

Two very popular, beautiful short hairstyles that will look good on most women is from the stars of 'A Simple Life' Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie. Both have sported very cute, sexy short hairstyles that are perfect for just everyday events to hanging out with the stars. The short hairstyles these two sport are not too short length wise and are great changes for women thinking about shorter dos.

Best Color for Your Sedu Hairstyle

Thu, 24 Jun 2010 14:07:00 +0000

Sedu hair style is usually considered to be straight hairstyle, but nothing apart this is mentioned, when speaking about Sedu hair. So, we may turn on our imagination and start seeking for the perfect color match to your own Sedu hair style.Deciding on what hair color to choose is a ve-e-ry painstaking process. You think about highlighting, or changing brown into black, or blond into red. This day you would like to have hazel and the next day sun will make you love blond, and the autumn will force you to choose red.There are hundreds of opportunities for the hair color. However, the main thing is to find something that will make your hairstyle a Sedu one. The crucial keypoints of the best choice is your character, your complexion, the color of your eyes, and your age.Keypoint #1: Your characterTo choose perfect hair color for your character means to use those color patterns that will naturally reflect your personality. Your image is a single whole, and suitable hair color will help you to ensure that your Sedu hairstyle reveals your character in the best way.• Brown and hazel hair colors will suit everybody from business women to teenage girls.• Black color will be good for self-confident people, while blond can bring out mild character.• Red and copper shades discover passion and desire, and highlights express people who like to compose contrasts.Even acid green for your hair color can suit you, until it matches your personality. So, mind your character, when deciding on your own Sedu hair color.Keypoint #2: Your complexionTo express the Sedu part of your image and not spoil it with something unsuitable, you should remember about the complexion. Not that it should restrict you in colors, but shades should be picked up rather carefully.Don't listen to people who say that ethnic hair can be only of particular color to match the skin complexion. It's not true. But still it is necessary to take care that the color you've chosen suits your image. Remember Halle Berry in the X-men? Does she look bad? Of course, not.At the same time pale skin is rather sensitive to the black shades. When the wrong shade is picked up, you may even look like Mrs Adams. And cherry red don't like tanned skin, while it matches pale people.The bottom line is following: take care of the shade and it will take care of your Sedu image.Keypoint #3: The color of the eyesWhen speaking about perfect Sedu hairstyle, we should say that the color of your eyes is one of the most important questions. It is rather difficult to find the shade that will express the beauty of your eyes.But there is some advice that can be considered useful in this situation:• Dark grey and dark blue eyes can match everything.• Light grey and blue eyes find themselves in friendship with blond and light brown; though sometimes these eye colors also fit brown black.• Dark brown and hazel eyes match every hair color, but mind the complexion.To say more, as long as you express your eyes' beauty through the hair style and hair color, you express your own beauty, because your eyes reflect your personality. Moreover, your Sedu hair style only wins if everything about your style is in harmony.Keypoint #4: Your ageChanel once said that all women are beautiful and pretty. But prettiness disappears with age, though beauty remains. She also added that it's a shame that all women want to be pretty, and no one desires to be beautiful.I may add to this that Sedu style and hairstyle express your beauty, not prettiness, something that lies inside you, your secret passions and hidden desires. So, when you are not afraid of your age, either you're in your -teens or your -ties, it is noticeable. You show bravery and dignity, and this is very attractive and Sedu.Here are some tips to remember when matching age and hair color: 1. Black loves women in their twenties and thirties. That is if you have long and middle hairstyles. If you have short hairstyle, you may wear black as l[...]

It is a well known fact that sleek straight hairstyles have always been appreciated due to their elegance and attractiveness. These timeless hairstyles are perfect for all hair lengths and can easily be created using permanent hair straightening solutions or flat irons.

Straight Hairstyling Tips:

To get a perfect middle part, always part your hair when it is soaking wet and hold your comb flat on your scalp when creating the line so that it’s precisely straight.

For natural-looking straight hair, skip the flat iron and just use a blow-dryer and large round brush. This keeps hair supple. Help make the look last by applying a finishing spray. To make your blow-dry last a few days, don’t finish by spritzing your hair with hairspray. It will give your hair a sticky texture that won’t look as clean and shiny. Instead, apply a lightweight mousse—like Redken Touch Control 05 Volumizing Texture Whip—in damp hair before styling for hold. To maintain sleek and shiny hair, you have two primary options. The first is to choose commercial products designed specifically to help with shine and the second is to make your own homemade products.

How to Create a Glam Holiday Updo Hair Style in Just 30 Seconds

Sat, 05 Jun 2010 00:40:00 +0000

Updo Hairstyles, it IS that time again, when you may be just a week or two or days even from your first holiday party. Unfortunately this year the recession has hit everyone, and not everyone has the luxury of spending half a day at the stylist anymore, not even near the holiday crunch. So if you are wondering what to do with your hair this holiday season, and still look glam and fabulous, go for the 30 second updo. Not only is it super sexy and super chic, but it really does only take 30 seconds, and the end result is a no muss no fuss chic pulled together look.
And the best part? You don’t even have to wash your hair if you don’t want to. In fact, second day hair will actually make this one even easier. If you are stuck with some wallet crunching this holiday season, and have *just enough* hair to clip back, follow these simple steps to a super simple updo that will have heads turning all night long.

Step 1
– Pull your hair back into a ponytail.

Step 2 – Twist the ponytail like a rope until the pony starts to buckle and loop upwards, but not too tight.

Step 3 – Use a clip or barrette and clip the loop in place at the back of your head. Try placing the clip towards the top of the loop so that the back looks almost like a chignon.

Step 4 – Fan the ends of your pony upward and place on top of your head. If your hair is super long, you can pin them at the top of your head if you want. If your hair is longer, you can curl the ends with an iron and place them with pins on top of your head. This may take longer than the 30 second updo, but it is a far cry from styling your hair before you go out.
Tips and Tricks:

The greasier the better with this look, so go a day or two unwashed when you try this, the chignon will hold much nicer. Your updo will hold longer as well, and if you want some nice morning after waves, sleep with your clip on for a casual wavy look the next morning.

If you are using this for a night out, a razor sharp side part will create just a smidge more elegance.

Progress Update For June 2010

Mon, 31 May 2010 21:30:00 +0000

Well, it’s that time again. Today I just measured my hair for June 1st. As you may recall, I always do it the day before.

Last month I measured in at 24 3/4 inches. This month, I measure at 25 1/4 inches, for 1/2 in growth for the month of May.

I’ve been assessing my ends, and I may have to go back to trimming every third month instead of every fourth month. I’m already noticing that the ends are getting uneven. This means I trim this month

I’m posting a photo that was just taken today. It’s not my favourite photo, but that’s just how my hair is rolling today. I know, I know, my hair looks a different colour in every photo, but it’s really not.

I hope that my American friends had nice weather for the long weekend. ‘Til tomorrow, my friends.

Sun, 30 May 2010 19:57:00 +0000

This is an easy summer style that is quick, easy, requires no twisting and requires no braiding.  It can be adapted for height, and the ends can be left loose as I have chosen to do, or they can be tucked under. Also, you can experiment with flipping the ponytail through more than once for a fuller topknot.All you need for this style is a brush or comb, a ponytail holder, and a barrette or slide. A Topsy Tail Tool is helpful, but not essential.Here are the instructions:1. Put hair in a high ponytail.2. Take Topsy Tail Tool and  insert it behind the hair elastic from the bottom, with the ponytail in the Topsy Tail loop.3. Pull ponytail up behind the elastic with the Topsy Tail.4. Now that you've pulled the ponytail through, hold it straight up and give it a gentle yank.5. Pull ponytail down over the flip-through, smooth it with your hand and insert as small slide or barrette.  I am using a Flexi-8 slide that was given to me by a dear friend.Lightly comb the ends, which are now likely disheveled, and smooth them.6. The finished style.Another view:[...]

Sometimes You Do What You Have To Do

Sun, 30 May 2010 00:42:00 +0000

I’ve been reading articles and topic threads for a long time, and the consensus seems to be that it’s optimal to stretch out the time between washing one’s hair to as long as possible.  Some long-haired people go four, five days, or even a full week or more between washings.

Some of these people do rinse their hair with water only every few days.  This is not for me.

While I do try to do the best I can for my hair, I’ve only been able to go from daily washing to every other day.

I did wash daily for years, and it took a bit of adjustment to go every second day, but I can’t seem to go beyond that.  On Day 3 after wash day, I can only go without washing if I know I won’t be going anywhere.

I do know that many women my age have less production of the sebaceous glands in their skin in general and on their scalp. I am not one of those women.  My facial skin still produces a lot of oil, and so does my scalp. Even trying to brush my hair with a boar bristle brush, as is often suggested, is not enough to prevent my scalp hair and beyond from looking very oily by the third day after a wash.

Additionally, with my hair so fine and straight, there is no hairstyle, updo or braid that can hide that. I don’t see any practical way around this.

So I do wash my hair every other day. I have changed my habits, such as using conditioner to wash my hair, and I’ve made a lot of other changes in the handling of my hair, but I really don’t see a time in the near future in which I will be able to go regularly for more than two days between washes.

I don’t let it bother me.  I have to do what works for me and what is practical in my life. Sometimes that just means not following the best advice.

So it’s good to remember that while there’s a world of hair care advice out there, sometimes you just have to find your own way, and be good with that.

Kristen Stewart is a versatile actress who has been cast in various roles. The most well-known or prominent role, however, has been her portrayal of Bella Swan in the Twilight Saga. If you want to get a hairstyle similar to the one Stewart sports in the Twilight, then you should remember to keep it simple. Stewart’s hair is lightly layered, curled, and is not dressed up with a myriad of highlights. Furthermore, her hairstyle is perfect for the average teen as it is flattering and very easy to maintain.

To get hair like Kristen Stewart’s, you must simply follow these steps:
1. You must consider your hair’s length and texture. Your hair should be a medium to long length. If your texture is naturally straight, you will want to blow your hair dry and use a chunky curling iron. If your hair is naturally curly, you may simply choose to let it hair dry.

2. If you decide to blow your hair dry, simply scrunch your hair near the ends. This will give you additional curl and wave, which is absolutely essential to getting the ultimate Kristen Stewart look.
3. After your hair is dry, you should apply a little hair product (gel or wax) to keep the front sections of your hair pushed back. If you have a lot of hair, you may want to use bobby pins to help accomplish this.
Additionally, if you have hair that is thin and lifeless, there are many sprays and products which will help add volume to your hair.

Good Day, Bad Day

Sometimes I have to go back and read some of my own words in order to keep from backsliding on this journey.

This morning, I was suddenly keenly aware of that patch of breakage from 18 months ago near the crown of my hair.  It’s much longer now, but it’s still so far from the ends,  creating a false layer. It was sticking out of my updo this morning as if in mockery of my past foolishness.

I also felt very frustrated because it seems as though the trek to mid-back will last forever. I just couldn’t see any progress.

I had a very strong urge to trim, but my regular 1/2 inch trim is not scheduled until July. Annoyance was really setting in.

I went back and read some of my more enthusiastic blog entries in order to try and change my frame of mind.  Then I hopped in the shower and washed my hair.

To my surprise, when I took my hair out of the towel, I could feel my wet ends touching a spot on my back that I didn’t feel last week.

While I can’t see any progress, today I could actually feel it.

Once again, thank heaven for those tiny little milestones. They always seem to provide encouragement just when I need it most.

Why Long Hair

Thu, 27 May 2010 19:58:00 +0000

Since I began my first steps in the long hair journey, I’ve never really sat down and thought about why growing my hair long is important to me.  I gave it a lot of thought today.

While my goal length is ultimately tailbone at this point, I don’t know if I can realistically achieve that with healthy looking hair.  And my goal really is to have hair as long as it can be, while looking healthy, even it that means having a shorter final goal length.

So what is it that has me driven to grow it long?  I thought of a lot of possibilities.  I never did have long hair much as a child, and never in my teens or 20s, so it’s not about recapturing my youth.

It’s not about vanity, or else I would have my hair cut and styled in the most face and age-flattering cut. I’m sure there’s always an element of vanity in wanting any part of your body to be a certain way, but that’s really not the crux of it.

I did always admire long hair, but usually the long hair I admired was not anything like my own; it was usually thick, wavy and flowing.  My hair is and never will be any of those things, so I’m not trying to achieve that.

I finally realized that a lot of my desire to grow long healthy hair is about making a long term goal and doing what I can to reach it.  Hair that is waist length, hip length, tailbone length, or however long I can keep growing, represents not days, not weeks, but years of care and commitment.  This is not something that one can do overnight.  It takes patience and a certain amount of discipline.

Long healthy hair is a visible result of that commitment, patience, care and discipline.  I really like that.

I truly sabotaged my initial efforts when I dyed my hair brown and then blonde again, but that’s in the past now.  Now I’m just about free of the damage of those experiences, and I’m back on the road of this long hair journey.

Do I think that having very long hair will change my life?  No, not in itself.  But I do think that having a long term goal and achieving it, even if it’s something as seemingly insignificant as hair, will be a very good experience for me.  It already has been so far.
