Spring Transformation Cuts

March 9, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Bust out the hair shears, it’s time to get rid of your boring winter hairstyle and bring out a fun new ‘do for the new season. Spring needs a little splash of fun and what better way to bring out your fun side than to get a fun new cut. No matter how much time it takes, it is definitely worth the time and effort. Your final transformation in the end will be enough proof that the time and money are worth the investment.

Some of the easiest styles to perfect are during the spring season, especially the early spring time. This is because the humidity in the air is beginning to change in the early part of spring, so you’re catching the frizz and damaged ends right at the perfect time. It’s much easier to cut hair in the transition of seasons rather than in the middle of the summer when the hair is filled with frizz and bulky ends that have been damaged by humidity. Use this to your advantage when you get your new cut for springtime.

Some of the hottest trends in hair right now are being drenched with shine and glam. One of the biggest trends of spring this year, 2012, is to have “glistening hair” according to Harper’s Bazaar. Whether you long and bouncy curls or a short and pin-straight bob, your hair could definitely fit in this spring when its paired with some shine. To complete this look, buy yourself a fresh trim from your hairstylist to start out and be sure she cuts off all of the damaged ends. The best part of this spring trend is that you don’t have to use your shears all that much. As long as your stylist gets rid of the dead ends in your hair, you can just get by with a trim and finish it off with your shining serum.

On the other hand, some girls do a completely new look for their spring/summer cut and are more than happy to lose tons of their locks. If you’d be interested in doing something like this to keep cooler in the awful humidity, there are a few easy and simple steps to follow. One piece of advice to start out with is to put this project into the hands of a professional. If you usually give yourself at-home trims, do not trust yourself to perform a spring transformation style like this.

A couple of fun trends for getting hair all cut off include the pixie cut, and the short Victoria Beckham style. These styles are very easy and fun to play with as long as you keep it thin and edgy. With a pixie cut, you should always be looking for choppy and extremely short so that the ends are fun yet easy to take care of each day. This is one of the easiest styles of summer/spring because it has the least amount of hair and is easiest to style.

As for the Beckham bob, you need the help of your stylist to get a really good angle. Start with extreme layers that stack up the back of your head of hair. Make sure she keeps it light and thin so it’s not an overbearing process to style it each morning. The point of this cut is to accentuate your cheek bones and give a little volume to the roots of your hair. To do this, have your stylist bring the sides of the bob down to the ears and cut them at an angle so each side stars at the stack behind the head and “diags” all the way down to your earlobes or longer (your choice). Edgy is always fun for spring and it’s totally in this year!

Whether you plan on getting all your hair chopped off, or just getting a quick trim to keep cool for the spring/summer seasons, these ideas are sure to help. With funky bobs to long and “glistening” hair, you are sure to get a great look that will turn heads this season!

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.

The problem with many travel hair dryers is they are too small and not really effective at getting your hair dry. What they lose in size they also seem to lose in power and capability to dry your hair. The T3 travel dryer does not lose any of its power in order to become small enough to fit easily into a suitcase. This small dryer uses the same ceramic heaters and ionic technology that larger professional hair dryers use but in a small effective package. This is the perfect hair dryer for someone who travels frequently and needs to look their best while they are away.
