New And Modern Updo Hairstyles For You

Posted by Prom Hair Styles on July 13, 2009

Do you need a new hairstyle? If you have long hair, it is easy to get into the ponytail rut. Just put it up and go. But long hair offers a lot of hairstyle options if you are going to the prom, having senior pictures or bridal pictures made, going to a wedding, or just needing an updo for a formal party. You do need to know some basics of hair care before getting started with long hairstyles though. Knowing the best way to shampoo, comb, brush, and dry your hair and the tools to use can give you a head start in your hairstyle.

Conrad Prom Hair StyleFirst, shampooing long hair is best done standing up, preferably in the shower. This helps reduce matting and tangling. You should choose a shampoo that fits your hair’s needs. For instance, chemically treated or damaged hair should be treated with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Only apply shampoo to the scalp and then rub in circular motions to clean the scalp thoroughly. When you rinse, work the shampoo through the ends of your hair and this will also help with less tangles. Your goal is to clean your scalp, so it is not necessary to rub shampoo into the ends of your hair. Use several towels to blot your hair dry. Never rub wet hair because this is a major cause of matting and tangling.

Second, combing and brushing long hair can be difficult if you do not use the proper tools and technique. To make combing wet hair easier, start with a leave-in conditioner. Using a large tooth bone comb, start at the ends and work up a little, about an inch at a time, getting the tangles out. If you are working with dry hair, a large paddle brush works best. Again always start at the bottom and slowly work up to the scalp. When blow drying long hair, use your fingers to comb through the hair from scalp to ends while drying.

Third, you need a few hair tools on hand to make the perfect hairdo. They include a large comb, square paddle brush, bobby pins, hairpins, and elastic bands. The best elastic bands to use are covered with some type of material. You might not have known there is a difference in bobby pins and hairpins, but using them correctly will help your hairstyle. Bobby pins touch in the middle and are designed to hold the weight of your hair. Hairpins are made to hold hair in place that has already been secured with bobby pins. You can make curls and then spread them and hold them in place with hairpins.

There are lots of great hairstyles you can choose once you have mastered the basics and have your hair clean and ready. Braids and updos are perfect hairstyles for proms, senior pictures, bridal pictures, weddings, and formal functions. Many hairstyle professionals can style your clean dry hair in an updo in about 15 minutes. Having long hair doesn’t have to mean always wearing a ponytail. Talk with your hairstyle professional about some of the many hairdos that would work for you.

Posted by Prom Hair Styles on July 12, 2009

Many girls focus solely on finding the one-of-a-kind dress, the perfect shoes to complement it, and even the perfect guy to go with. However, the little things do mean so much. Even the most beautiful, upscale dress can look absolutely dreadful when you’re sporting a bed head! You have spent so much time on your makeup and so much money on your dress and jewelry, don’t forget your hair. No matter what sort of hair you have, you’ll find a prom hairstyle that works for you! If you plan your hairstyle with a salon stylist before the day of the prom, you can rest assured knowing that your hair will be taken care of.

Trendy Long Prom Hair StylesA walk through history is a superb way to locate great hairstyles. The care free and trendy style of modern short hairstyles comes from the bob style introduced in the 1920s. Alternatively, kick it up a notch. The fantastic and classic looks of the 1930 movie stars would make an excellent and unique prom hairstyle. By combining the look of a dress with a lower hem with hair styled in waves close to the face, you will create an elongated look overall. In order to use this style, your hair has to be at least chin length and parted on the side. If you have long hair, you can still use this hairstyle by doing a French braid at the level of your hairline with a side part; then curl the braids up into a low chignon. To create the waves, you’ll need to start with damp hair coated in jojoba-based “hot sauce” to protect the hair, then coax the waves into form using the diffuser of an FHI heat blow dryer and a small-barrel curling iron.

Maybe you’ve decided you want to be creative with a short, distinctive style. One option is twisting small sections, then bobby pinning it in place, or you could go a step further and spike it out. For slightly longer hair, you can try twisting it into miniature buns and spiking the ends for a truly unique look. A naturally wavy look can complement most face shapes and is rather easy to produce – wash with an intensive conditioner, blow dry it while using a diffuser, then work in a sculpting or styling paste to provide waves and volume. One product that makes this look a snap to finish is Redken’s Quick Dry Instant Finish. Leave a few hairs around your face, or pull your bangs off your forehead, or you might want to use a styling product to slick down your bangs. Short hair offers many styling options, including the retro pageboy style that is very popular right now, or even darkening and bleaching different sections for a wild look. A slightly lopsided bob cut is rather hot right now, and the super short Twiggy hair style has become popular for the prom this year, with several stars already sporting the look. Even mullets have made their way back into popular hairstyles, accentuated with asymmetrical cuts. Short hair is in vogue right now, along with natural-looking highlights and rich hair colors like copper or chocolate browns. If you want something different and want longer hair, you might use Unique VIP hair extensions that are actually made from human hair. Celebrities, like Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson, use extensions on a regular basis and look great in them!

If you want a medium-length hairstyle, the low chignon works perfect for any type of hair and has a looks fantastic. You can find these formal hairstyles at red carpet events, weddings, and in movies. To accomplish this look, you have to gather your hair into a low ponytail. For an even more alluring look, have the ponytail tied slightly off center, just below your ear. Now, take your the ponytail and wrap it in a circle around itself and secure the style with your favorite brand of bobby pins. Don’t be afraid to let a few tendrils of hair hang loose, as a bit of messiness can make it look even better. A shine enhancing hairspray will provide the finishing touches for this look, as well as provide adequate hold. Many girls count on a professional for this, which is probably a wise idea. This timeless fashion has been worn by both Katherine Heigl and Jessica Simpson. Flowers, braids, and clips are some options that can be added to a medium length hairstyle for an extra special look. If you absolutely love long hair styles, but your hair hasn’t grown out enough, you could try getting extensions.

The decision can be even tougher if you have long hair because there are so many choices. Two popular styles right now are soft, natural looking waves for long hair left down, and curly updos. Some of the most popular celebrity hair styles include those of Angelina Jolie, Eva Longoria, Nicole Kidman, Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson. Curls that are soft and sensual will look fabulous in updos or hair that is down. You can choose to tease out your hair to a tremendous height and volume for a rock star look. Go with a braid or a classy chignon. Some really well known and gorgeous celebrities have used a straight and sleek look. If you want a big change on prom night, you can change the length of your hair or get highlights.

Here are some tips about prom hairstyles: Number one, don’t wait until the last minute! Salon appoints are quickly booked during prom season. You don’t want to end up with an emergency on the day of the prom as you try to twist, spray, blow and curl your own hair, only to wind up with a big mess! If you don’t plan ahead, you may not be able to get a stylist to help, so make sure to contact your favorite hairdresser and discuss different ideas ahead of time. Do your homework. Keep an eye on celebrity hair styles, watch for styles that will work with your look, and try them out for yourself using an online virtual hairstyling application.

Useful Tips When Doing Your Prom Hairstyles

Posted by Prom Hair Styles on July 9, 2009

Along with all of the excitement a certain amount of anxiety always creeps in when teenagers are faced with their upcoming prom. For a girl, this may include wondering whether someone will ask them to go. For a boy, they may worry if the girl will say yes when asked. Yet after that is out of the way, most girls begin to concentrate on things such as prom gowns, prom shoes, how they will do their makeup and prom hairstyles. For the hairstyles, you will be able to find many different sources containing hints about the different styles available.

Medium Awesome Prom Hair StylesOne nice thing about hairstyles is that along with the more traditional up-dos are new ones that are constantly being created as well. You should experiment with many different styles, some that you have tried before and perhaps some that you have always wanted to try but have never had an occasion to go all out.

Remember that formal prom gowns and short prom dresses will likely call for very different hairstyles, so don’t decide on your hairdo until you have the dress. If you can’t afford to have your hair coiffed professionally, then look online and in magazines for ideas and try to get someone to help you do your hair. You can always add a ribbon to your hair that is the same color as your dress.

There are several different prom hairstyles that begin with a simple ponytail; for example you can put your hair up in a high ponytail and pull several strands down around your face and neck. Perhaps you can even slightly curl the wisps of hair that you pull free from the style. Or, separate a ponytail into two sections and then twist each of the sections into random knots that are pinned to the back of your head, again pulling small wisps out.

Try putting your hair into a ponytail that starts at the midsection of your head and use ribbon that matches your prom gown to weave a crisscross effect into your hair. If you decide to wear your hair in a ponytail, then use large curlers in your hair to create curl and bounce and perhaps finish it with a shine spray. For a no fuss party do, simply pull hair into two equal pony tails, either high or low, and then knot the two sections together. Use bobby pins to secure or to hide any stray hairs you don’t want. Don’t forget that weaving flowers, real or silk, into your hair is a great way to enhance the style with a great feminine touch.

Don’t feel left out of great prom hairstyles just because your hair is short. One very trendy look is hair stencils and they actually look better on shorter hair. You can choose one that is already made or design your own for a look that you know will be completely unique. This is something that you can do by yourself, but it is usually a little easier with help. Once you have decided on the design you can choose a color that matches your prom gown or simply use a gold or silver glitter spray.
