Keeping Hair Fresh Makes Your Look Fresh

May 4, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

When I was younger, I could go two or three months between each haircut. It always seemed easier when I was a young girl because my hair hadn’t been exposed to heat or damaging chemicals yet. Getting a haircut in April meant my next appointment would be in June or July. However, as I grew up, I started getting into trends from my favorite TV shows and wanted to constantly look like my favorite celebrities. When I was little, fresh haircuts made me look older because of the styles I was admired by. Now that I’m older I realize haircuts should make me look younger. As I get older I don’t want to look older, I want to keep my youthful, fun look that keeps me in touch with my youthful personality.

Older women today sometimes have trouble with this concept of staying younger. There are a few common mistakes that they make, thinking these things will make them look older. For example, they tan their skin, grow their hair out, get their nails done and more just to make themselves look younger. Truth is, those things only make them look older. When they tan their skin becomes wrinkly and tight when what they want is to look dark and flawless. Maybe this is what they see but the rest of the world notices an orange shriveled up body. Growing hair out doesn’t look great on older women because of the texture of their hair. As we age, our hair gets drier and begins to loose its natural oils and the longer it gets, the more noticeable those dried ends become. Getting nails done aren’t that bad of an asset to the aging process. It just looks bad when you combine it with the above trends that don’t look good.

Going back to growing out hair, we want to avoid looking old with our hair especially. To do this, we should think of new ways to keep a fresh look and a perfect example would be a haircut! Getting regular haircuts is an essential if you want to look young and fresh. Doing this can also bring out highlights in your other features too. For example, when you get bring out those  hair shears and chop off all dead ends in your hair, you can add a little needed volume. Create some layers too if you want a little oomph in the top of your head. Body in the hair definitely cuts a few years off your look and when you build up the hair, you also build up your cheekbones. Shorter cuts are very appropriate for women over fifty and when you use your hair scissors for certain tasks it helps a lot. Another idea is to cut a section from your bangs to swoop to the side. This will cover some of the aging spots on the forehead but it will also draw attention to your eyes when the hair falls right next the eye.

To play up your look, think about ways to make yourself younger. Next time you want a new style, don’t think about dying your roots or going tanning to make yourself look younger. Instead try getting it all cut off and making it more of a polished look. Making yourself look younger definitely isn’t a hard thing to do when you think about it.

Having Your Own In Home Barber Shop

January 21, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

The traditional barber shop is quickly becoming a thing of the past for many reasons. Of course the biggest reason is there are not too many men who are opening up shop to cut the hair of men. Most stylists want to work with women’s hair since there is more money involved with the more labor intensive styles that women want. One other reason is men do not want to go to a beauty salon to get a quick haircut so many are resorting to cutting their own at home.

For whatever the reason for a lack of barber shops many families and men are saving money by purchasing hair clippers and just doing it at home. If you have never used a pair of electric clippers they are very easy to use and getting a good looking cut really does not take any experience at all. Many come with several sizes of blade guard which you can use to get a varying length of cut to fit your preferred appearance. If you have a father and couple of sons by cutting your own hair at home you can save the family hundreds of dollars a year and never have to make an appointment that may not fit into your busy schedule well.

Women who have had their hair straightened by a stylist think they could never get their hair to look as good as it does when they leave the salon. The one thing these women forget is the only things the stylist has they do not is a professional styling tool and experience. These are both things that you can get to do your hair at home for salon quality straight hair for a fraction of the cost, and without an appointment.

 

There are plenty of professional styling tools available including ceramic flat irons that can be purchased over the internet or at fine hair beauty supply shops. These are the same tools used by the professionals so that you have the exact same tools to get the job done just as they do.

The only other piece that a professional stylist has is experience and the only way to get this yourself is to just keep trying your hair iron on your hair and seeing what kind of looks you can get. One key thing to remember is that the stylist takes her time on each head of hair that she does and never rushes the job. Taking the time to glide the hair iron slowly and smoothly over each small section of hair is a large part of the success to getting great looking straight hair.
