Bring In The New Year With Style

New Years Eve is just around the corner and if you’re planning on celebrating, do you already know how you’re going to wear your hair? If not, you need to start thinking about how you’ll be ringing in the new year with some style. There are plenty of options for creating a beautiful look for any party, especially a party as special as New Years.

All you need to create a fun and festive style are the right hair tools. Depending on the style you want to create, you’ll need a good hair iron, a curling iron and of course a blow dryer.

The best idea, no matter what your hair length is, is to start with dry, clean hair. So after you wash your hair choose an ionic dryer to dry your hair and lock in the natural moisture that your hair needs. An ionic dryer will infuse your hair with negative ions which act on each individual hair shaft to seal in the natural oils and the moisture which means your hair won’t look dry or damaged. In fact, your hair will actually benefit from this type of blow dryer, so you don’t have to worry about damage.

Once you have nice, healthy dry hair to work with you will need to decide if you want an up do or want to wear your hair down. Both ways can look absolutely gorgeous, it’s really a personal preference.

If you choose to wear your hair up, try sweeping it into a casual ponytail and then use your curling iron to add beautiful, sexy curls at the tail. Another way to create a sleek up do is to use a ceramic hair iron to make the hair straight and shiny. After you straighten it, pull your hair up or half up in a clip. You can pull a few tendrils through to frame the face, and if you like curl the hair that you have pulled up, to create a look of straight and curly at the same time.

Sometimes, the most beautiful hair styles are the simplest. If simple and sexy works for you, try to create something a little different for New Years Eve. If you typically have straight hair, use a curling iron, or even a hair iron to create beautiful, sexy waves throughout your hair. Using a hair straightener to create curls is very simple and fast, and gives you a much softer look than a curling iron.

If your hair is typically curly, use a hair straightener for a sleek and alluring look this year. You don’t have to worry about damaging your hair or permanently flattening your curls when you use a tourmaline hair straightener because these hair irons use the power of tourmaline to infuse each hair with negative ions which locks in the natural moisture and oils into each hair. Your hair will be stunning and sleek, not dry and frizzy, and it will hold the straight style all night, so you don’t need to worry about your style losing its power half way through a night of dancing.

This year, say goodbye to 2008 and goodbye to boring style. Ring in 2009 with something different and go into the New Year with some style.

How To Get That Curly Hair You Want

October 22, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

To get curl into otherwise straight hair women have a couple of choices to go with depending on how often they want the look and whether or not they want to subject their hair to chemicals. Curls can be achieved through hair curling irons or via a permanent done at the salon. Perms as they are called will remain in your hair until it grows and the curl is cut from the ends of the hair and involve a long process using chemicals to add these curls. This is good if you want curls for a very long time and do not want to change your look too often.

The other alternative is to get the curl into your hair using a hot curling iron every time you wash and style your hair. Some women feel that this way is more time consuming than the perm and not the best option while others like the freedom this allows. Since the curls are not permanent you can change the degree in which you curl your hair each day or choose not to curl it all and go straight once in awhile. Really one way of curling your hair is not better than the other it is just a matter of personal preference on what you prefer.

Many women wonder which is better at putting curl into your hair, curling irons or hair rollers. Of course there is no right answer in this case it is actually a matter of personal preference. Hot rollers do tend to cost slightly more than curling irons, once all the rollers are in place the hair curls quickly, and you can do other tasks while you curl your hair since hands are not needed. On the other hand a professional curling iron gives you more control of where the curls go in your hair and many feel that despite your hands being required at all times they are actually easier to use than rollers.

Finding the right hair straightening tool for you can sometimes seem like a daunting task with so many different models out there and so many options for metals, ceramic plates, sizes, and so much more it can get confusing. Many of the great features on professional hair iron tools are really just a matter of personal preference. Such as ionic technology, it is not vital to have this feature that adds negative ions into your hair to help it maintain its health and vitality. But one feature that is more specific for each user that should be considered is the size of the ceramic plates on the straightener you decide to purchase.

Many people automatically opt for the one-inch plates, which is the sort of generic ceramic plate size for a hair straightener. This is usually a good choice but there are times and certain hair types that will call for a different plate size and for those circumstances the right plates on your tourmaline ceramic hair iron will get the bets results for the look your are trying to achieve. If you hair is very thick or very long then you will want to go with larger ceramic plates on your iron to accomadate the hair. While those with shorter or thinner hair will want smaller plates since they will have less hair to be working with and will need the more precise action. Of course any iron can get the job done, some are just better suited for your needs than others.
