Always find out if the stylist doing your hair is a good one. Word of mouth, before and after photos, and simply just setting aside an hour or two to watch a stylist at work can help ease your mind. You must not jump into this without research. A well trained hairstylist can apply hair extensions correctly so it is painless and does not damage your hair in about  4 to 7 hours. The main reason for getting hair extensions is to add length to your hairstyle, although they can be used to thicken or add highlights. The clip in hair extensions you can do yourself and are the cheapest. Here are some of the different looks you can achieve:

How to Cut Hair Layers

Step 1: Shampoo and condition your hair, towel dry but leave it a little damp. If you cut your hair dry it will dull your scissors.

Step 2: Comb your hair straight back

Step 3: Section off about one half inch of hair as though you are going to cut bangs, but continue the section all the way down your face to the front of your ears. The rest of your hair should still be combed straight back to keep it out of your way.

Step 4: Bring the top section hair forward and down in front of your eyes. Using your nose as a measurement for length, cut the section of hair straight across to just the outer edges of your eyes. Your starting cut should be at the tip of your nose, never higher than the bridge of your nose. You should now have a straight line from the outside edge of one eye to the other. This line will be your length guide for cutting the remainder of your hair. The further down your nose you make your first cut, the longer your final haircut will be.

Step 5: Comb the section you’ve just cut straight up. Holding your hair between your index finger and your middle finger in a scissor-like grip, snip off the tips of this section. What you are trying to achieve here is to get a straight line while the hair is held straight up. If you cut too much, you will end up with a shorter haircut overall.

Step 6: Comb the sides of the section straight up taking with it some of the hair you’ve just cut. Notice that you can easily see how the sides are longer than the cut section. Using the bangs cut as your guide, and holding the side sections straight up, make your next cut straight across. When you let the hair go you will notice that it falls easily into layers.

Step 7: With your comb, section off another small amount of hair from ear to ear combing it forward and keeping the remainder of your hair straight back. Comb the new section of hair straight up, pulling with it the first section as your cutting guide. See where the first section was cut and the new section that is needing to be cut? Cut the second section evenly with the first. Pull the side sections straight up again to cut it even with the bang area.

Step 8: Continue to section and pull the hair straight up and cut across using the previous cuts guidlines. Make sure to not section off too much hair as you will not be able to see your previously cut section. Continue sectioning and cutting all the way to the back of your head, pulling each section straight up until you have sectioned and cut all of your hair. Make sure that you use sharp scissors and keep your hair damp throughout the whole process. Make sure to not tilt your scissors, your hair will be longer on one side if you do. When cutting the top section of your hair make sure you keep hair at the previous guideline, it is easy to cut shorter and shorter the farther back you go.

Until next time

Good Luck,

Short Hairstyles

April 26, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

A short hairstyle can be a bold statement and is also a style that can not necessarily be pulled off by just anyone. If you decide to go with short hair your biggest challenge can be keeping it feminine.

Don’t get me wrong, short hair is a popular hairstyle for 2008 and with the right style you can create a look that is feminine, sassy and stylish. Short hair can still be somewhat versitile depending on how short you go. You can go with really short hair and play with the texture, or short and curly, wavy or short and straight.

Popular short hairstyles for 2008 include The Bob and short, blunt hair styles. I included some great pictures of short hair styles that can help you see that short can be flirty and feminine!

*Style Tip – For sleek, straight and shiny hair you can use a 1″ hair straightener. A hair iron with 1″ plates is ideal for short hair as well as layered hair and bangs.

A medium length haircut is considered from just below the jawline to several inches just past the collar bone. A medium length hairstyle is perfect for those who prefer length but do not care for the maintenance of long hair.

A medium hairstyle can still be feminine, flirty and sophisticated, especially when you add layers. When adding layers to any length of hair always have your stylist help tailor the layers to best suit your features.

In order to keep a layered medium hairstyle looking its best you’ll want to get a trim every 8 weeks or sooner. This will help prevent a shaggy look as the layers grow out.

One great thing about medium layered hairstyles is their versatility. whether you wear straight, wavy or curled its an entire different look each way.
