Despite the fact that women spend endless hours on their hair before going out to a simple dinner, men tend to prefer simple, sexy, low-maintenance styles. This might just be because these styles take less prep time which means men don’t have to wait as long, but whatever the reason, men like it simple.
Sleek and Straight
Grab your flat iron (try a Karmin Titanium) and straighten your tresses into a clean and healthy style. Be sure to use appropriate heat protection spray and even a straightening serum for the best results.
Classic Pony Tail
When guys see a high, loose pony-tail, they’re minds immediately conjure up images of school girls and cheerleaders. Take advantage of this and use it as an excuse to throw up your naturally wavy locks into a pony tail. For a little extra class, wrap a 1-inch section of hair around the elastic band and add big curls using a 1 inch barrel curling iron (try the CHI Turbo Digital)
Casual Up do
Seeing a woman with her hair piled loosely on her head, maybe with a few tendrils around her face, makes a guy want to reach out and run his fingers through it. It shows that a girl is carefree and relaxed and not too worried about having every hair in place (literally). Use a flexible hold hairspray and bobby pins to secure your hair into this attention-grabbing style.
Even when a woman has been using the same styling techniques every day for months, there are some days when she’ll wake up and just not be able to make her hair cooperate.Ever been this woman? Not anymore! There are several easy and inexpensive precautions you can take to ensure that every day is a good hair day and you never again have to leave the house in a sloppy pony tail or old hat.
The first step starts long before that fateful morning when nothing works right. Always, always wash your hair with a quality shampoo. There are shampoos available for thick hair, thin hair, curly hair, color treated hair and many more.
In addition, be sure that you use are using an appropriate conditioning technique. You can use a conditioner that must be washed out immediately or a conditioner in the form of a spray that you leave in the hair. If you use a hair dryer
and other heated styling tools on a regular basis, consider using a product that will protect your hair from heat exposure.
When you dry your hair, don’t forget that this is an important step in the styling process. The way you dry your hair can drastically affect the way your hair lays and looks during the rest of the day. To add volume, flip your head upside down and dry your hair starting at the nape of your neck and working you way outward with a brush.
If you intend to use another heated styling tool such as a hair straightener
or curling iron
, now would be a good time to spray the hair with a thermal protecting spray
to prevent any unnecessary heat damage.
Whether you are straightening or curling the hair, work section by section, spraying each part with a styling spray before you apply the heat. After you are finished, DO NOT brush the hair again; simply spray the hair with a setting hair spray and comb through it with your fingers if necessary.
If you curled your hair, brushing it will drag out the curls and leave your hair poofy rather than nicely curled. If you straightened your hair, brushing could take away from the sleekness you worked so hard to achieve, as well as lead to static electricity.
Remember, your hair is an important part of your appearance and it’s important to take good care of it. Use the proper styling tools and products, as well as the proper styling techniques each time you work with your hair
