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.

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.
