Resolve To Have Style In 2009!

January 6, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

So it’s a new year, and if you’re like most people, you probably have a New Years resolution or two. And if you are like most people, you may have already broken those resolutions by now, the first week of January. So why not make a resolution that you can actually keep? Make the New Years resolution that you are going to pay more attention to your style and give your hair the treatment that it deserves.

Too many people take their hair for granted. Giving it a quick brush in the morning, or throwing it up in a pony tail. But your hair can be so much more, and it should be. So why not utilize your hair to its full potential and use it to really show off your style. Your hair is actually an extension of yourself, and with a little bit of care and the right hair styling tools, you will easily be able to create whatever styles reflect your personality.

The first thing you need to do is to be sure that your hair is in optimal condition. And if you’ve been neglecting your hair for awhile, you may need a little bit of work in this area. The first step would be to visit a hair stylist for a trim and a little shaping. Tell them what you are trying to achieve and a good stylist will be able to create that for you. And if you don’t know what you want to achieve with your hair, simply let them know a little bit about your personality and your lifestyle and let them take it from there.

Once your hair has been trimmed and you’re ready to go, you will need to invest in a good hair straightener. The hair straightener is the way to go if you are new to hair styling because you don’t need a full drawer of styling implements to get started. This one hair iron should do the trick.

If your hair is curly or has a natural wave, you can use the hair iron to straighten it for a complete new look. But don’t stop there. You can also use the hair straightener to create flips and tucks with the ends of your hair, giving it a bit of style and pizzazz.

If you already have straight hair, use the hair straightener to add curls and waves to your hair giving it volume. Yes, you can curl your hair with a hair straightener!

It is important however when you are choosing a hair straightener to choose one that is going to treat your hair well. Because what’s the point trying to achieve beautiful styles when you’re just causing damage to your hair? And if you don’t pick the right hair straightener, that’s exactly what you will be doing. Look for a hair iron with tourmaline. Tourmaline works by infusing your hair with negative ions that actually seal the hair cuticle locking in natural oils and moisture so your hair looks and feels healthier and shiner than ever before.

You should also look for a ceramic plate hair straighter, or a titanium plate hair straighter because these plate types are the best for your hair providing you with the proper heat distribution, without snagging or pulling your hair.

So this year, make a New Years resolution that you will actually keep and invest some time and effort into your own personal style.

Sharpening your scissors can be a very tricky prospect and not trusted to just any sharpening company even if they are great at what they do. Sharpening hair scissors is nothing like sharpening knives, so just because a company is skilled at cutlery does not make them the best hair scissors sharpening company available. You should trust your professional scissors and shears to someone who is well versed in sharpening these implements so that the job is done right so your tools for cutting hair are at their best so you can give great haircuts that will have the customers coming back to you every time.

As a hairdresser the styles you create on your clients and their happiness with these styles will determine just how successful you will be at your career. Of course the building block for any style is the cut itself and this can only be accomplished well with professional hair cutting scissors. A good stylist knows that you do not skimp on your hair cutting tools and get implements that will not perform as well and will not get the results you need for great hairstyles. Quality shears are a real investment for a successful career that will end up paying for themselves.
