Information About Celebrity Hair Styles

Posted by Prom Hair Styles on July 26, 2009

Amazingly, celebrity hair styles are one of the biggest influences of the way we dress. Many of the more popular hairstyles of the years have come from big time and even small time celebrities that happened to have great hair and a great stylist that made us all stand up and pay attention. Because celebrities are thought to be the most beautiful and sort of the ideal for both men and women, why wouldn’t we want to copy celebrity hair styles?

Long Prom Hair Styles For WomenOne of the most well-known hair styles is that of Jennifer Aniston. Rachel on Friends had a sexy, easy, layered look that all the women wanted. Many women still wear variations of the Rachel hairstyle today, making it obvious just how powerful celebrity hair styles are. Over the past couple of years Jennifer Aniston has played with longer and shorter looks. Last year she went straight most of the time, but this year she is going for the tousled, slightly curled look. To the surprise of many fans, her hair isn’t pin straight and the wavy looks that are back for 2006 are ideal for Jennifer Aniston and people like her that have slightly wavy hair. There is no doubt that Jennifer Aniston has naturally beautiful hair, but most people can recreate her looks even if their hair isn’t as naturally healthy or full as Jennifer’s is.

Another famous face in celebrity hair styles is Jessica Simpson. Jessica Simpson is simply the cover girl of fashion and beauty right now, and women young and old can’t help but envy her beautiful body, beautiful skin, and trend setting hair styles. Jessica has played around with very long hair styles that have been pin straight and has done short bobs that are wavy. Jessica Simpson also likes to play around with ponytails, up dos and braids of various sorts. There isn’t much that Jessica Simpson isn’t willing to try with her hair, because she knows just about everything can be undone with a visit to her stylist. Jessica is a huge fan of extensions as she can go from ultra short to ultra long from one day to the next.

Britney Spears is another celebrity that has influenced women young and old. First, she had the blond locks, and then she went for the ultra long look, all of which suited her. Like Jessica Simpson, Britney isn’t afraid to play around with different looks. She too has gone for the pin straight look as well as the wavy look. Britney has played around with extensions, but has also gone short and conservative like she did when she was pregnant. Britney currently has a natural bob that suites her and is probably quite easy for the relatively new mom that is trying to do the job that motherhood entails while recording a new record.

Jessica Alba is another celebrity that many women look to for hair styling tips. Jessica has beautiful hair and has the ability to wear it in very simple styles as well as very beautiful styles, and look great all the time. Jessica Alba typically wears a medium length hair style that is layered to frame her face, which is an ideal cut for most facial structures because it helps to bring out your best features.

Celebrity hair styles definitely give us all an idea of what we can do with our own hair, but it’s just a starting place. What makes a great hair style is the person wearing it. You can have long extensions a-la-Jessica-Simpson, but if you don’t have the attitude and personality to pull it off then you might want to go for the medium length hair styles that she has worn, or even the shorter shoulder length dos that we’ve seen on her over the last year or two. Celebrities have the knowledge and the guidance to always have great hair, as well as the resources, so it is no wonder that we all look to them for styling ideas!

If you are looking for great celebrity hair styles, pick up your favorite gossip magazine, or even look for the hair magazines that offer highlights of the most popular stars hair styles and how you can achieve the same look. Remember if you are attempting to copy such a hair style that it not only looks good on the star, but that it will look good with your facial structure as well as the thickness or texture of YOUR hair!

Eliminate Routine Hairstyles With Layering

Posted by Prom Hair Styles on July 25, 2009

Every woman, no matter what age, will reach a point where we get tired of our everyday routine hairstyle and are looking for some change to spruce up our current look. The first idea that comes to mind usually is changing lengths, either from shorter to longer or longer to shorter hair lengths. This can be risky but rewarding if the proper hairstyle can be found to match. The second idea that most women take is different coloring, say like from brunette to blonde or vice versa. This change is more permanent and the result may not be as pleasing as we thought. This is where layered hairstyles can play a huge part by providing totally different yet gorgeous looks with some minor alterations in hair length and even some streaks.

Pony Tail Prom Hair StylesLayered hairstyles have become more and more popular because they provide a classy, beautiful look with minimal change. Well we shouldn’t say minimal because layered hairstyles do require a cut and possible some color highlights to enhance other features. With layering, there is not a major change in hair length and there are so many ways to layer the hair with highlights or adding curls, waves, or ringlets. Because the amount and length of layering can be changed; there are a number of hot looks available for different face shapes.

Another feature that makes layered hairstyles so versatile is the addition of highlights that enhance the whole hairstyle. For blond and light hair colors, adding darker complimentary colors can make the hairstyle even more prominent while adding lighter complimentary colors to darker shades of hair will have the same performance as well. A key guide to highlighting layered hairstyles can be found in the many looks of Jennifer Anniston. By looking at her layered hairstyles, the different colors of highlights and how to streak them to match perfectly can be clearly seen. Adding highlights can enhance any hairstyle but can also have the opposite effect if not done with the right colors or with too much highlighting in the wrong sections.

Some key celebrity examples include Heather Locklear and her oval shaped face, which is goes well with most hairstyles, which have made every length of layered hairstyles look fantastic and the ever popular Jessica Simpson, who is a great mold for woman with medium or long hairstyles wanting some layering. There are an abundance of different layered hairstyles to copy from just from the many looks provided by the celebrities as every single one of them probably has worn a layered hairstyle. There is also an abundance more. The few listed below are just a small portion of the many looks possible with layered hairstyles.

The simple look layered hairstyle
This is look is great for everyday life as well as any party occasion as it is a very simple look.

Some Hot Hairstyles For the Summer

Posted by Prom Hair Styles on July 24, 2009

When it gets a little warm and sunny, summer is most likely arriving. Everybody wants their hair to cooperate with the weather because we just don’t want a comfortable, but also a fashionable look. Our hair is said to be our crowning glory so we should keep it stylish and elegant whatever the season.

Crazy Prom Hair StylesDuring summer, most people would opt for a shorter haircut, and there is a scientific explanation for this. Lesser hair means the head is kept cooler, which explains why during winter, you should wear caps and earmuffs. A hotter weather is also said to make people more aggressive, so it does help to have a literally cooler head.

There are several short hairstyle trends for you to choose from that are best for the hot summer. Short pixie haircuts, also called a cap or a chop, are becoming trendy in celebrity hairstyles. These styles are being donned by the likes of Rihanna, Victoria Beckham, Katie Holmes and Keira Knightley. These beautiful women wearing pixie cuts have them even much shorter than the shortest bob. The hair is layered from the crown to the hairline and has a longer length at the nape of the neck. The razor cuts also give them a unique and yet mischievous look.

Short cuts are loved by women because they’re very easy to maintain yet are still ultra stylish. A short hairstyle highlights the face and accents facial features with much emphasis especially to the eyes. You can also add multi-dimensional color highlights to a short hair to give more drama to it. Long fringe bangs will give more a more glamorous and sexy look.

However, if you are not that confident to chop off your hair to a very short length, you can still choose to style them up to fit the summer season. You can wear your hair long with shiny locks. It’s the boho mermaid look which is one of the hottest styles this year. With this style, the hair starts fat and sleek from to the top of the head and when it goes down to mid-length, it becomes more wavy and messy to the ends of the hair. This type can be worn either with a center or side parting of the hair. If the shape of your face is kind of long, it would be best to wear bangs to somehow cut the length of your face. But if you have a much rounder or chubbier cheeks, just let your hair fall on the sides to make your face look narrower.

You can wear your hair in a ponytail and tease it up for more volume. Big curls are very hip and trendy this season so don’t be afraid to wear them with attitude. If you have a really straight hair, you can achieve those curls by using a curling iron. You can also use a little hair spray for a few minutes to set your hair. Rake your hair through your fingers then tease and toss them up to achieve a voluminous look.

Enjoy your summer and have a great stylish looking hair to go along with it!

Sexiest Hairstyles For Long Hair

Posted by Prom Hair Styles on July 23, 2009

While looking for hairstyles for long hair, you’ll realize that there are many options that are available to you. With so many choices available, the key will be finding the one that best suits you.

Celebrity Prom Hair StylesWith lots of hair to play with, you can experiment with a wide variety of looks. For instance, try putting your hair up in a fashionably untidy bun. Don’t scrape your hair back from you face, but instead leave a few tendrils loose and finger-comb the rest into a loose knot at the back of your neck. This is a wonderful look for a casual afternoon outing or a day around the house. Try a figure-8 bun for something edgy and a chignon for those nights when you want a touch of elegance. (See below for the best way to test different hairstyles for your face shape)

Sedu Hairstyles For Long Hair:

For a sleekly professional hairstyle, why not consider using the Sedu flat iron? Sedu products have a reputation for leaving hair sleek and shiny with a minimum of time and effort invested.

Through the use of moisture in every step of the styling process, the Sedu flat iron ensures that your hair does not end up flat and lifeless. This flat iron uses Sedu’s trademark ceramic plates to smooth out hair without leaving it looking dull. You can also use the Sedu flat iron to flip your hair and put waves into it; combine this treatment with hair that has been cut into layers for an especially dynamic look.

When speaking with your stylist about hairstyles for long hair, run the idea of layers past her. Layers can add a lot of personality to your look, and as well as being easy to care for, they can enhance and flatter the shape of your face. When you tie your hair back, layers fall down to frame your face and soften its angles. Layers can also lengthen a face that’s round and add accents to the existing planes and angles.

If you’d rather not to commit to layers, consider getting bangs cut into your hair. Avoid thin bangs that fall straight down, as this can give your face a rather boxy look, but heavy, side-parted bangs are ideal for a look that’s both fun and professional. Thick bangs that are combined with soft layers create a lovely look, and are easy to grow out if you decide to try another style.
