January 9, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

When you get ready in the morning, do you do the same old thing every day? Are you sick of the same hair style? We are creatures of habit and when something becomes a habit or a routine, it becomes all too easy to fall into a rut. And that is just as true for our hair styles than anything else in life. If you are used to wearing your naturally straight hair down, without doing much too it, you will likely do that everyday. Likewise, if you always pull your hair into a pony tail, it becomes all too easy to do that everyday.

Well, it’s time for a change. There is no reason that you have to do the same thing with your hair all the time. Just because you always wear your hair one way does not mean that you have to stay that way. Mix it up. Many women use the excuse that “It’s too hard to try something new.” Or, “I don’t have time in the morning to do anything different.” Those excuses don’t hold any water, because there are a lot of easy and quick ways to change things up. All you need are the right tools.

With a hair straightener, you can achieve a wide variety of new and interesting styles and it doesn’t have to take much time at all. For example, if you normally wear your hair straight, take your hair straightener and try flipping up the ends of your hair, or curling the ends under slightly to make an easy bob style. Just this one simple change, will give you a completely different look and it doesn’t take any longer than just straightening your hair would.

If you want to try something that offers a little more change, take your hair straightener and use it to create loose, waves and curls. This look is very easy to achieve and doesn’t take long at all to create a completely different look on days you want to change it up.

Of course if you have naturally curly hair, you can change it up by using a hair straightener with ceramic plates to straighten your hair. Ceramic plates are the best choice because they use far infrared heat to infuse your hair with moisture, locking in the moisture in the hair, so your hair doesn’t look frizzy or damaged. It’s quick and easy to straighten your hair if you have the right iron at your disposal.

Beautiful hair styles can also be created by using a mixture of curls and straight hair. Consider putting your hair in a half pony tail and using your hair straightener or curling iron to curl the hair that has been pulled up.

There are a lot of options available to you that don’t need to take a great deal of time. The best thing to do is to experiment and try out a number of different looks. After all, there is no reason your hair needs to look the same everyday. In fact, you may discover that you like it a lot better a different way.

When it comes to looking your best, there is never a more important time to look hot with a styling hair do than at your yearly Christmas parties. And not only is it important to look your best with a fancy new dress, and some glam makeup, but you cannot forget about your hair. Because after all, you wouldn’t be looking and feeling so festive if your hair was doing the same old boring thing it did every year.

Yes, Christmas is the perfect festive season to pull out your curling iron, your hair straightener and your hair dryer and start your styling engines. You don’t have to spend a fortune at the beauty salon to have a gorgeous hair style; all you need is the right tools and a little imagination.

Of course no matter what style you are trying to achieve, you want it to look healthy, shiny and dazzling. Not frizzy, dry and damaged. So it is important that to create a healthy hair base, you dry your hair with an ionic hair dryer. Choose a hair dryer that has ceramic coated elements and the addition of tourmaline because these items will create negative ions that will actually dry the hair from the inside, out which means that it will reduce the amount of time it takes to dry your hair, giving you more time to style it into a beautiful up do. Besides giving you more time to style, which is a gift in itself, this type of quality hair dryer will make your hair look even healthier because the negative ions close each hair cuticle, allowing them to lay flat and retain their natural healthy shine.

It’s often easier to style your up do if you start with straight, sleek hair. Once your hair is completely dry, use a ceramic or titanium straightener to create that sleek look. Using a quality hair iron also adds shine and a natural luster to your hair that will make any up do look extra special.

Once you place a few strategic pins and clips, you can also use your hair straightener to flip up edges, smooth tendrils to frame your face or even create curls. Of course, if you’re looking for a very curly look, a quality curling iron will help you create the cascade of curls you are looking for. Choose a ceramic barreled curling iron for the smoothest curls, and after that, you must decide on the size of curls you are trying to create. If you want tight, corkscrew tendrils, look for a smaller barreled curling iron, and for soft, flowing waves, a bigger barrel will do the trick.

Creating festive up dos can be a lot of fun, and with the right tools for the job, it is easier than you think. Simply use your imagination and take some time to practice and soon you will have a styling new hair style for the party season that will dazzle all of your coworkers, friends and family members.

Help for Damaged Hair

Have you over styled your hair in the past? Maybe undergone a great deal of chemical treatments or colors? If this has happened to you, you might be suffering from dry, damaged and frizzy hair. It can be extremely frustrating to style your hair if you are suffering from damage because you don’t want to further damage your hair or cause any more problems. Also, it can be intensely difficult to control frizzy dry hair.

 

Don’t worry, you don’t have to live your life under baseball caps or with your hair pulled back in pony tails. There is hope for you and for your hair. Because you can style your hair even if it’s damaged from past problems. The key is to use the right tools and products.

 

If you have the typical frizzy hair that results from damage, you can make it smooth without further harming it. Simply find yourself a quality hair straightener that is made from either ceramic or titanium plates. You should also invest in a straightener that has tourmaline technology. The tourmaline technology actually emits negative ions that work to smooth your hair, closing the hair shaft and allowing the hair to lay flat against your head. The hair will instantly look smoother, and healthier. And don’t worry about damaging your hair further with a hair straightener, because the tourmaline works to straighten your hair faster, your hair is exposed to heat for a much shorter period which means, it won’t result in damage.

 

You will also want to invest in a quality hair dryer for your hair. Again, you don’t need to worry about extra damage or causing your hair harm by using a blow dryer. But you must invest in a quality product. Look for a dryer that is made with ceramic coated elements and also utilizes tourmaline technology. You can dry your hair in a fraction of the time, without any of the damage because it isn’t being exposed to unnecessary heat. Also, the tourmaline works the same in the hair dryer as it does with the straightener. It will close your hair shaft, smoothing the hair follicle and creating hair that not only looks beautiful and shiny, but is also much healthier and more manageable.

 

You don’t have to be scared of hair tools and styling your hair if it’s damaged and over treated. With the right tools and a little bit of knowledge, your hair will look healthy, bouncy and more beautiful than you could imagine. Stop suffering from bad hair days, and get styling.

No More Uneven Bangs with the Right Shears

October 31, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Have you ever decided to give yourself a little trim in between salon visits? Perhaps you thought you could trim your daughter’s bangs for her so you could avoid a visit to the hair stylist? If you have ever thought that you could cut your own hair, or anyone else’s hair, you are probably guilty of scissor misuse. Come on. Admit it – you’ve done it.

 

If you’re like most people who think that they can trim their own hair, you’ve probably grabbed any old pair of scissors that you have lying around to do the task. Oh sure, you may have grabbed a “good” pair of scissors, maybe a brand new pair, or a pair that you only use for cutting fabric. Using the logic that these scissors are sharper than any other ones. After all, you wouldn’t cut your hair with the same scissors that your kids use for craft projects right?

 

Stop! If you feel the need to cut or trim your own hair for any reason, you must have the right tools for the job. Just like any other job, you must prepare yourself with the right tools. After all, you wouldn’t use a screwdriver to hammer in a nail would you? Just like you shouldn’t use your kitchen scissors to cut your hair. Instead, invest in a quality pair of hair cutting scissors or shears.

 

So what’s the big deal? Why do you need special scissors? Well for starters, a proper pair of hair shears will cut your hair cleanly and smoothly. Ordinary scissors will tear, or pull your hair. They won’t result in a clean, smooth cut. You’ll end up with damaged and jagged ends. And even worse, your hair will be uneven. Have you ever seen someone who has really short bangs, and they’re still uneven? Sure you have. That girl didn’t use the proper scissors and kept trying to correct her mistake until she ended up with awful bangs. Don’t be that girl.

 

A proper pair of hair shears will make your simple trimming jobs easy and smooth. You will be able to comfortably and easily make slight adjustments to your hair, take care of any split ends or trim your daughter’s bangs. Of course you should still visit the hair salon for major cuts and styles, but little jobs can be done very well with the proper pair of shears.

 

Look for a student set of basic shears. You don’t need anything fancy, or any special scissors for thinning your hair, or texturing your hair. Keep it simple for your first set of shears. Look for the right set for your hand. If you are left handed there are scissors that have been designed with you in mind. Try them out if you can. Hold them and get a feel for them before you buy.

 

Once you have the right tool for the job, the easy trims will be simple and enjoyable and you won’t ever have to worry about being the girl with the uneven super short bangs.

Many women feel that getting touchable curls is next to impossible but really it is much easier than they realize if they prepare their hair correctly and use the right tools to get the job done. Good curls always start in hair that has been washed and conditioned to be clean and healthy. Then the hair is properly dried so that the hair does not get dried out creating frizz in what should be smooth and luxurious hair. Finally a professional curling iron is used to create the look you really want to have in your hair.

Recreate Your Look at Home with the Right Tools

October 17, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Every woman loves that feeling when they leave the hair salon after a fresh cut and style. The bounce and the healthy swing of your hair as you spin around and look at yourself in the mirror is perfect. The frustration can set in the next morning however, when you try to recreate the magic that your stylist so easily applied to your hair.

 

How is it that your stylist can instantly and easily create a stunning hair style in minutes and you struggle at the mirror pulling your hair in awkward directions, combing, brushing and spraying and you still cannot make your hair look the way she did? Well, for starters your stylist is a professional, and they got to be a professional by training and practicing for years. Chances are good you’re not a professional hair stylist.

 

But does that mean that you can’t have beautiful hair at home, or that you must head into the salon every day in order to recreate some of that magic? No, not at all. Just because you aren’t a professional, does mean that you have to live with less than beautiful hair. In fact, with just a little bit of information and the right tools, you will be on your way to stunning hair in no time.

 

Next time you get your hair styled be sure to have an open conversation with your stylist. Tell her that you would really like a style that you can do at home. And then ask her to show you and teach you how she does what she does. You may have to book a little bit of extra time for this, so be sure that you tell her when you’re making the appointment so that she doesn’t rush you through. Ask her to walk you through everything she is doing, from the blow dry, to the finished result.

 

At home you will need the correct tools in order to achieve the style. Does your stylist use a hair straightener? Or a curling iron? Chances are good that you have a blow dryer, but is it an effective one? If you have to spend a long time drying your hair with an ineffective dryer, you are exposing your hair to unnecessary heat which will cause frizzies and frizzy hair will not contribute to the final look you are going for.

 

Ask your stylist for suggestions about what tools would be best for your hair type and make the investment in a quality hair straightener and a curling iron. Another thing that you will need to achieve your style is the right set of styling products. What does your stylist use in your hair? Gel, mouse, a serum? Ask her what products she uses and why. Invest in those same products but be sure you are using them correctly.

 

Once you have had your tutorial on how to style your hair and you are armed with all the tools and products that you will need. Go home and practice, practice, practice. Try to take some time where you can experiment and try out the techniques before you have to go out. This is a great thing to do in the evening or on a weekend. But do not put a time pressure on yourself by experimenting right before an important date or night out.

 

Perfecting your style takes time and practice but the best way to achieve the look you want is with the right arsenal of tools. After a bit of practice with a good set of hair styling tools, you will be surprised at how fast you can recreate your beautiful hair style. Oh ya, and don’t forget to tip your stylist for her extra effort in helping you look amazing!
