Facebook-Inspired Styles

March 18, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Lots of girls think that they have to get celebrity-inspired styles for big events. It’s a smart idea and not to mention a very popular idea too. The only thing is, usually hairdressers can’t do exactly what pictures of celebrities look like. It’s a little more difficult than it seems because everyone’s hair is different for one thing. For another thing, celebrity stylists have access to the most top-of-the-line tools because of who’s hair they style. It’d be boring to see a celebrity on the red carpet with their tossed up into a ponytail wouldn’t it?

Most stylists use tools like hair straighteners and curling irons to reach the exact style that their client may be after. Although these tools are available to everyone around the world, celebrity hairstylists own brands of these tools that some couldn’t even imagine to afford. Certain straighteners are extremely hard to get your hands on and it’s not something so simple as just going to Wal-Mart and grabbing an iron for twenty bucks. We’re talking hundreds of dollars for a simple straightener and why? Because it’s used on stylists like Jessica Alba and Taylor Swift.

One tip you can use to help get more realistic ideas for prom would be to look at websites like Facebook or Pinterest. These websites have styles inspired by girls who are going to the exact same occasions if you search specifically for “prom styles.” Facebook is great because you can search a hairstyle that one of your friends from school used in previous years. If you don’t want them to think you copied you, change a little something about the style-pull your bangs back into a poof or add in a flower to distract from identical matching. This is where Pinterest may be a little more helpful. You can search “prom styles” and you won’t get pictures of girls from your school but the pictures will still be realistic. Maybe you can even save a little more money by finding a DIY (do it yourself) kind of hairstyle for your big night.

Using celebrity-inspired styles on your hair is really fun and a great way to pull of the biggest night of the year. The only problem is that it may not give you the most realistic styles. Some of the styles can be impossible to pull of, depending on how detailed the style is. Go ahead and do a search for fun celebrity ideas, but remind yourself to take a look at your number one visited website, Facebook. You’d be surprised at how many fun styles you can find.

How to Get Taylor Swift Curly Hairstyle

November 8, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Want to know how to get Taylor Swift’s curly hairstyle? The following is a simple step by step ‘how to’ in achieving this curly hairstyle you often see this popular singer wearing.

1. After washing hair, towel dry and apply a styling product such as a curl enhancing mousse or a texture enhancing cream. For the best blow out follow these simple steps on How To Blow Dry Hair but be sure when drying the top sections of your hair (step 6) to create a deep side part and blow dry hair in the direction of the part instead of straight back.

2. The top of Taylor Swifts hairstyle is straight so you only want to curl your hair from just above your ears down to the ends. Using a 1″ curling iron, wrap 1-2 inch sections (alternate for more natural looking curls) around the barrel of your curling iron and hold for 5-10 seconds and then let go. To avoid a dent in your hair do not clamp hair in your curling iron, just wrap the section of hair around the curling iron.

3. Using your fingers, loosen some of the curls to create some waves, as you can see in the photo above of Taylor Swift, her hair is both curls and loose waves.

4. Apply a small amount of shine serum and rub into the palms of your hands, lightly run your hands over your hair or use a shine spray being careful that you don’t over do it as too much serum can make hair look oily and go flat.  Spray with a flexible hold hairspray and you’re good to go!

Note- If your hair needs more texture and volume at the roots, spray your finger tips with your hairspray and place fingers into your roots and gently rub your fingers back and forth to help lift roots and add some separation and texture.
