Celebrity Hair Review: Katy Perry

June 8, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

One of my favorite artists is Katy Perry. She is ever-growing and lets nothing slow her down; it makes everyone love her even more. Another part of her that everyone loves is her spunky and edgy sense of style. When she first came out with her hit single “I Kissed A Girl” we were all in shock that someone would write a song about that but then as she became more famous and got even more comfortable in Hollywood, she started changing a few other things about her. For example, she started dressing in things like bras that shoot out whipped cream and started dying her hair different shades of pink and purple-even if they were wigs, we all learned to love her a little bit more.

Let’s face it, it’s so hard to get recognized in Hollywood today and Katy had her own way of doing so. Some of her songs have been considered borderline crazy-she falls in love with an alien in one song, she sings about kissing another girl and even has a song about sexual terms but that’s what kept her in touch with record companies-it kept them guessing. As fans, we’re also always guessing and wondering what she will do next with her fun yet kooky style.

Recently, Katy Perry filmed a movie about herself called Katy Perry: Part of Me. Although it’s not in theatres yet, in the previews you see many different hairstyles and colors that she sports and it may make you wonder a few things. How does she have such pretty hair after so many different styles and transformations? It’s so true, her hair is absolutely perfect and it never looks like there’s a strand out of place. Now of course she has a stylist that can make her hair look like brand new each day and she probably wears wigs half the time but sometimes it is her real hair that is colored blue or hot pink. And how does she keep such healthy hair?

That’s just it, she has a stylist. There are some people that aren’t celebrities dye who their hair almost once a week and their hair will never look as good as Katy Perry’s. She inspires many people today because of her fun hair but the difference between our hair and her hair is that she pays someone thousands of dollars a year to make it look stunning and completely non-damaged. Whereas we can barely afford a cut and color every month or so. I would be willing to be that if Katy Perry showed her true hair, without extensions, without any hair dye in it, she would have very damaged and dull hair because of all the things she puts it through.

Katy Perry is one of the greatest artists of our time and we all envy her for her stunning performances and appearance. Although I do love her hair, the damage she’s done between dying and styling, I don’t envy her for. The use of a straightener is evident in her hair each time you see her and although it’s not necessarily a bad thing, it can be bad after so long. Katy better watch how she styles her hair-it could come back to haunt her.

Red Carpet Styling

January 6, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Looking at your favorite stars on TV seems to attract your attention to hairstyles more than reading a magazine. For example, seeing Kate Winslet’s soft tresses or Jennifer Anniston’s sleek and straight look on the red carpet makes you want to get up and style your own hair just like theirs. There are so many stars on the red carpet who have a variety of looks, but one thing is in common and that is the way the celebs got their look.

Although the red carpet has so many looks, they are all achieved by one common source: heat. Whether it is by a straightener or a curling iron, the stars of Hollywood always look flawless on the red carpet and now you can too. The process for celebrity styling can be very complex but with these few simplified steps, you can accomplish the perfect look for all your nights out.

One of the best parts about styling hair for a big event is that you can use your hair straightener to create so many styles. Not many people know about the versatile functions of a hair  straightener, but when you put this tool to work there are so many things it can accomplish. Going for a polished look is one option, which you can create by simply running a straightener through your hair in a matter of ten or fifteen minutes. Start with your heat protectant spray and begin straightening with an iron. The size will vary based on the type of hair you have. For thick and curly hair, 3-inch wide plates are advised and for thin hair, 1-inch plates are best. Another tip to remember is to run the straightener vertically through your hair to give it a smoother look.

If you are looking to get soft waves, you can easily create just that with a hair straightener. It’s almost identical to the process of straightening your hair, which makes the process even simpler for the stylist. The best way to create curls is to start at the crown of the hair and clamp down. Next while the plates are closed, turn the iron in one full circle and then begin running it down your hair just like you would if you were straightening. There is no standing and waiting with a curling iron in your hair if you use a hair straightener. This process is so efficient when you are short on time as well. Finish off your curls with a fresh spritz of root lifter spray and a quick run through with your fingers to loosen the curls slightly.

Red carpet hairstyles may look impossible to achieve when you see your favorite stars with ridiculously beautiful styles. However, after following the steps above, you will realize how easy it can be to create the exact same looks without spending a fortune on a stylist or a Hollywood curling iron or straightener. Get started making your hair red carpet worthy for your perfect night on the town!

Men Can Straighten Their Hair Too!

April 17, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Growing up my older brother had really curly hair, which he used to spend what seemed like hours in front of the mirror trying to tame. His only hairstyle choices were extremely short so the curl would be cut out of his hair or something that involved curl. He just like many men born with curly hair would have done anything to get straight hair since to many of these guys curls are a girly thing they do not like on their own heads.

Of course many men do not think of it but they too can use a flat iron on their hair to get rid of their naturally curly hair and get those straight hairstyles they see on the men in Hollywood that the ladies love. Some guys might be reluctant to try this depending on their personality since to many this kind of grooming is just too feminine. But many of the companies that make hair irons try and actually cater to guys by creating models that they would not mind using as much. The popular pink hair irons that are all the rage with the women just would not work in a guy’s bathroom so you can get things such as a camo design from Chi flat irons that a guy would not mind using at all.

Since many men have short hair it is important that they use a flat iron that has a small plate size so that it is easier to run the hair through the iron to get the hair straight. And just like with women it is essential that men use a quality professional straightener that will not damage their hair and leave it dried out and unhealthy. After all the whole point is to look good for the ladies and you want them to still be able to run their fingers through your hair.

Many Hollywood actresses are placing large curls in the bottom of their otherwise straight hair and so many women now want to achieve this look for themselves. Some wonder if the curls are coming from hot rollers or a curling iron in these hairstyles. Generally most of them are using 2 inch curling irons to get these curls in the ends. A barrel this size will leave the curl loose and free as opposed to a smaller barrel size which will create a tight curl which just does not look natural at the ends of long straight hair as the big curl does.

Options for Straightening Hair

September 8, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

So many women want straight luxurious hair right now and the stars in Hollywood and models on the runway only encourage this by keeping the look in fashion as the in style to have. Of course if you are not born with naturally straight hair you can either get it chemically or by using hair straightening irons. 

Of course the option to chemically straighten your hair will not be available if you use permanent coloring on your hair even if there is just a little at the ends left this must be gone before you can use chemical straighteners. Also those who swim in pools a lot cannot use these chemical straighteners as the chlorine in the water will have very negative effects on your hair.

If the above conditions apply to you or if you just do not want to subject your hair to those nasty chemicals then hair straightening irons are the more effective way to get that straight hair. The drawback to this method is it does not last long at all so the most cost effective way is to purchase quality salon hair straighteners and do the work yourself as opposed to going to the hair dresser every time you want your hair straightened.
