Women New Hair Styles

Posted by Prom Hair Styles on June 30, 2009

Straight hair will shine more that curly or wavy hair because of light reflection. For maximum shine apply straightening balm before blow drying for super sleek looks. When you are blow drying use a nozzle attachment to direct the airflow down the hair from root to tip. This helps to flatten the cuticle scales and add shine. If you have course or frizzy hair, use a big, round thermo brush that has a metal barrel that heats up during the drying process. This heat is then used to style your hair, just like straighteners would.

Short Prom Hair StylesThere are wide range of creams, serums and sprays available to add instant shine. Gloss is great for this. Smooth or scrunch it into the hair to tame flyaway ends and give a fantastic sheen to your hair. Rejuvenate curls by twisting them around your finger. Rub a small amount of curl definer onto your fingers and mold the curl by winding the hair around your finger. This eliminates frizz, reshapes the curl and adds shine. Always rinse hair your with clean running water to banish shampoo and conditioner from the hair as remaining deposits will make the hair dull.

When rinsing use cold water in the final rinse as this will close down the cuticle and encourage shine. Intensive conditioning treatments replace lost moisture and lock it in by adding a fine protective layer around the hair. Feeling in the party mood then wear your hair in relaxed, wavy curls which will be one of this seasons hot new hairstyle looks. You can rag roll or tong your hair, or use large rollers for lovely loose waves to be the belle of the ball.

For a trendy party look which suits styles with short, sharp layers, keep hair smooth and sleek, slicked back behind the ears with some gel, or to show off your layers, wear it more messed up by tousling it with putty.

Are You Looking For A New Or Updated Hair Style?

Posted by Prom Hair Styles on June 30, 2009

There are 3 factors that you should consider before changing your hair style. First you should look at your face shape and body structure. A short woman may not look all that great with very long hair and a tall woman may not look good with a very short hair style.

Trendy Prom Hair StylesYou can determine your face shape by pulling all of your hair back into a ponytail, away from your face. Take a piece of chalk, or something that is washable, and trace the outline of your face using a mirror. Stand back and look at the shape that you drew. Your face shape could be a combination of the basic face shape, or it is exactly like one of the basic face shapes.

Some of the basic face shapes include:

Square Face Shape: Layered bobs, wisps around the face, and long layers are generally recommended for this face shape. Avoid very short or cropped hair or slicked-back styles.

Round Face Shape: Usually a layered cut and/or feathered cut will accentuate your facial features. Avoid any width in the hair at the sides of your face as this will make your face seem rounder.

Oval Face Shape: The envy of us all–this shape can wear almost any type of hair. Layered, curly, short, long….anything.

Long Face Shape: Any hair cut that is below the chin is best for this face shape. Long Face Shapes should avoid short hair.

Heart Face Shape: Another envy of us all–this shape falls into the same category as the oval face where virtually any shape will look good.

The second factor that has a great effect on your hair style is your current lifestyle. How much time do you devote every day to styling your hair, washing your hair, etc. This can be very important when selecting a new hair style. If you select a high maintenance hair style and don’t spend the time required to keep it looking good, you may not be very happy with the results.

The third factor for your hair style is color. Sometimes just a simple change of color or addition of highlights and lowlights can spruce up your style without having to do anything drastic. Color can do different things to your look. For example, adding a lighter or warmer color in the bang or crown area will lengthen your face. Whereas adding a darker or cooler color on the sides can decrease the width of the face.

Adding a lighter color to the sides will widen the face. Color can be used to create texture and accents to a hair style. Consult with your stylist for the best color combinations to use for your hair.

In short, if you are looking for a new or updated hair style, there are many different options available for you. You don’t need to do anything drastic to look different. Visit the Hair Styles Galleries at Hair Resources and find a new hair style that you like. All galleries have free access—so you don’t have to spend a ton of money looking for your style. Spend your money maintaining it!!

Great Hair Styles

Posted by Prom Hair Styles on June 29, 2009

MORE THAN ANY other factors, the texture, bend and amount of your hair must govern your choice of a hairdo. I emphasize this point because in my experience the failure to understand it is a leading cause of women’s dissatisfaction with their hair, and their hairdressers. Great hair styles depend on a proper analysis of your hair.

Crazy Prom Hair StylesThe woman who is trying to work against nature must spend endless hours fussing with her hair and gets no better results than the one who has chosen an easily cared-for hairdo. A successful hairdo is one where the hair will spring easily back into place. Any other kind means you have to force the hair to do something that is not natural to it. If you choose one of the latter, a great deal more hair care will be required, and satisfactory results are questionable.

First you must examine your hair with a cold and impersonal eye. Study it as it actually is, not as you would like it to be or as it used to be. How fine or coarse is your hair? How thick or thin? Finally, and one of the most important questions, how much bend (natural wave or curl) does it have?

To answer these questions, first wash your hair. While it is wet, begin manipulating it with your fingers. Examine the top, back and sides by sections. By doing so you will be able to determine the amount of bend in your hair. This bend will help you decide on the style. When you locate a natural bend, if there is any, you can utilize it for a style that will be practicable for you.

It is possible that some sections will have more bend, some less, some none. The bend which can be utilized best is that found at the temples, the sideburns, and the top of the hair. You will realize, of course, that the amount of bend will vary with the length of the strand of hair. If your hair is long and shows no bend, this is what to do: isolate several sections of your hair, each section containing between one dozen or two dozen hairs.

Cut these sections shorter and shorter till you get them down to one inch in length. At each cutting manipulate them with your fingers and comb, to test them for bend. When you find the length at which one or all the sections respond, you should use that length as a measuring stick for the rest of the hair.

As I have said, it often happens that one section will have bend, the other none, so common sense will tell you to use the bend for movement or variation of line, and leave the rest as straight as possible.

When you discover one section with bend you must search carefully along its outer edges, to see how far it goes.

While on this subject, I must make it clear that finding bend in the hair applies to curly as well as straight hair, because even curly hair has some straighter sections which can be utilized for their straightness. Great hair styles will take account of these variations.

Once you have decided on the amount of bend your hair possesses, then you must think in terms of hairdos and whether you want to utilize all of the bend or just some of it.

TEXTURE
Your next step is to begin thinking about the texture (fine, medium or coarse).

Fine hair has a tendency to frizz when curled too tightly. It looks its best when allowed to fall softly and naturally, with a minimum of curling.

Coarse hair will hold a curl or wave if you don’t curl it too tightly or wave it too much.

Medium hair is the most pliable and can assume many shapes.

AMOUNT
Thin hair must be made to look thicker. One of the best ways is to wash it frequently and keep it free from oil. When hair is freshly washed it looks twice as thick.

Thick hair can always be thinned if necessary to assume a shape in conformity with your hairdo.

At a recent hair show, hair accessories were the most popular trend. Silk hair flowers, headbands, barrettes and jeweled clips brought the presented hairstyles to life.

Long Prom Hair StylesHair extensions have exploded since Jessica Simpson introduced a line of clip-in hair extensions. Transforming short hair to long in a matter of minutes, clip-in hair extensions are great for those who want to try it out without a lasting commitment. Clip-in hair extensions have to be removed every night and re-applied in the morning. When they first came out, clip-in and semi-permanent extensions were only used by celebrity hairdressers on their famous name celebrities. Over the past couple of years hair extensions have made it into mainstream hair salons and are offered throughout the nation.

Also, one of the latest trends is healthy, chemical free styles that embrace more natural products. Chemical hair treatments are being used less and all natural hair care is becoming popular.

Right now, long, lush hair is in. That which is full of waves or curls. Texture and volume is back in. Put your hair straightener in storage and dare to wear curls. They are back in a big way.

Bangs are fading to the side-swept variety. Wear a side part for an edgier style, with hair cascading over your eyes. Roll your hair in a side bun or braid and twist your hair up with a creative up-do.

For formal occasions, pull your hair back to the neckline with a fashionable hair piece. Leave the sides slick. Pull out strips of hair for a more sexy look.

The main point is, have fun with your hair. Be creative, possibly starting a new trend of your own.

Modern Hair Styles For Women

Posted by Prom Hair Styles on June 28, 2009

There will be a point in our lives where we will take a good look at ourselves and decide to make some changes to the way we look or decide to have a complete style make over. This is when we will consider our hair cut and how we feel about the ahir style we are wearing.

Long Prom Hair StylesFor some this will mean drastic changes. Long flowing high maintenance hair might have had its place in our younger years, but now we are getting older, possibly reaching our forties and over, it might be time for a change.

What we need to consider when we change our hair style is that we might look totally different and it may take some time to get used to the new you. How can we make these changes where we will like how we look rather then just dread what we have just done?

One way is to consider very carefully what the overall look will be that we want. Do we want shorter hair as its easy to manage and maintain or do we need a hair cut in such a style that will add body and bounce to our hair?

The best way I can show you to make the right decision is to offer the advice that any other hair stylist would offer. That is, to look at other women as to the hair style they are wearing and see if you can choose one that you believe will suit you.

Once you have considered what type of style you would like you will need to search magazines and cut out the photos of the hair styles you are considering. Paste those photos on a piece of paper in the order of your preference with number 1 choice at the top followed by number 2 choice and so on.

Take your photo board to your friends or partner and ask for their advice. Pretty soon you will be able to narrow down your choices of hair style to three or four, maybe five.

Now you have narrowed down your choices you will need to consider the colour of the hair style you are considering. Do you want a full permanent colour or a semi wash colour? Will you considered streaks and or highlights? Will you consider a perm style wave style or straight style?

Once again, search for your colours and style of hair cut by cutting out photos and start the procedure once again, being number 1 at the top followed by number 2. Get your friends to comment on the style of your new hair cut and see what colours and cutting techniques will suit you.

Finally, take your choices to your hair stylist and ask their advice. Often hair salons will have a few hair stylists and I am sure if you gathered them around and asked their advice you will narrow down your new hair style to just one choice.

This simply technique will lessen any fears you may have when considering a new hair style or a complete makeover. Hair styles for women are many so by making the right choice at the very start will achieve the look you desire.
