•    Tips to Give Extra Life to Ombre Hair   

    Ombre Hair_02

    Keep Your Ombre Hair in Tip Top Condition

    Ombre hair has been a hot hairstyle trend in the past year. But while the hype may have simmered down a bit, it continues to be a top favorite for women who want to update their look without cutting their hair. Ombre hair is definitely a stunner and a look that captures attention. However, any form of bleaching or double processing will take its toll on strands in the long run. Therefore it’s of utmost importance to give hair proper maintenance and care to ensure that you not only make the colors last, but also keep hair looking healthy and vibrant.

    Three Essential Rules

    In general, there are three rules you need to observe when it comes to caring for ombre hair:

    Ombre Hair_03

    Rule #1: Invest in products designed for color-treated hair. Make your life easy. Most importantly, opt for a shampoo and conditioner formulated for color treated hair. In addition, avoid products that contain sulfate as an ingredient as it is the surest way to leave your ombre color looking dry and flat.  It can also make your hair brittle with continued use. Hence, you need to opt for a color nourishing formula to keep your ombre looking good as new.

    Rule #2: Undergo regular deep conditioning. Weekly deep conditioning is your ombre hairs BFF.  This will give those treated locks some much needed moisture. Deep conditioning is the best way to add moisture back to the hair that was lost during the color process. Deep conditioning protects the color and keeps hair looking shiny and soft.

    Ombre Hair_04

    Rule #3: Always use heat protection when heat styling. Thjs is a preventative step that should be included in everyone’s styling routine,  ombre hair or not.  Continued use of blow-dryers, flat-irons, curling irons and hot rollers take a toll on hair, especially chemically treated hair.  A heat protection spray will serve as your line of defense against damaging heat.

    More Expert Hair Care Tips

    Ombre Hair_01

    Here are tips from industry experts to make the most of your ombre hair, as well as best practices to care for it:

    • The key to achieving a natural, fresh ombre look is to opt for soft tones that are closer to your hair’s base color. It makes the color seem all the more natural due to the illusion of a seamless transition. Ombre hair is not the same as dip-dyed hair. Focus on achieving a more natural looking color.

    Ombre Hair_05

    • A great trick for achieving a modern vibe to your ombre look is to avoid lightening the ends of your hair. Instead,  work on certain pieces of hair to achieve a multi-dimensional effect. Add extra life by varying the tone and intensity of the color as you go from the roots to the ends.

    • Do not over lighten the ends of your hair. The ends are old and more fragile than the rest of your hair and they are susceptible to breakage. Find a fortifying hair product to protect your hair from possible damage. A good nourishing product will keep your hair looking soft and shiny.

    Ombre Hair_06

    • Undergo a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week. It does not mean that only a certain portion of your hair is treated that it does not make it prone to dryness. It is important to maintain moisture to keep breakage at bay.

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    13 Gorgeous Long Hairstyles Worth Stealing

    Long hair can be a dream; the length provides a seemingly endless array of opportunities for styling.  Indeed, long haired girls never need to feel stuck in a hair rut, or at a loss of styles to wear, not with all these lovely variations to toy with. These trends are from runway and celebrity red carpet events. Take a look at these gorgeous long hairstyles that are trending in 2014!

     

    Side Swept Blowout

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    This kind of blowout refers to the stick-straight hair. The side swept ‘do was all the rave in 2013 but most of these hairstyles leaned more towards side swept waves. The trend continues in 2014 but with minor alterations – the ends are now slick instead of wavy. The hair from the crown towards the middle is designed to be sleek for an ultra posh look. There could also be a hint of wave at the ends but keep it subtle.

     

    Slicked Back

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    This is one hairstyle that is absolutely inspired by runway looks. The hairstyle is characterized by its optimum shine and a slicked back sides and crown that almost falls flat to the head. You can let the ends fall loosely or with a mixed texture. There is also a glossy, almost wet, finish to this look.

     

    Mixed Textures

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    This mix of textures creates a new modification to an old look. This hairstyle starts with a center parting (zigzag in this case) styled to achieve a crisp finish. Hairstylists suggest using gel or pomade on the top only in order to achieve the different textures. This look constitutes a flat, slicked look on top with soft, loose waves from the middle to the ends of the hair.

     

    Messy Braids

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    Expect braids to stick around for a long while and in 2014, hairstylists predict they are going to be bigger than ever. Whether you are going for a glossy or matte look, it always ends up looking messy. This is the perfect go-to look for women on-the-go.

     

    Splashlight

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    “Splashlights” are the new “ombre” for 2014.  This one will turn heads and is for the brave and bold!  If you want to take color for your long hair to new heights, you should put “splashlights” on your to-do list.. This color effect is characterized by the horizontal band of color cutting across your hair from one ear to the other. Hence, it looks like a brilliant beam of light ”splashing” across your hair!

     

    Heavy Fringe

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    Bangs are another hairstyle trend that hit big in 2013. But in keeping with the trend, the fringe is going to be even bigger in 2014! Here is your chance to sport that heavy side or front fringe and stand out from other long-haired women!

     

    Ornate Ponytails

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    The ponytail is a favorite go-to look for women with long hair, and it needn’t be boring.  In 2014 the ponytail is taking on a higher profile with more elaborate styling. Think of big volume at the back, on top or throughout the tail, or maybe adding a wide headband with a low ponytail. The styling opportunities are endless!

     

    Extreme Side Part

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    A prevailing trend for top 2014 hairstyles is the androgynous look. This is exemplified by an extreme side part that delivers a boyish tone to any look with a sleek comb-over. The irony of this boyish look is that it exudes extreme confidence in a women and is utterly sexy.

     

    Sleek Half-Up, Half-Down

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    Another classic hairstyle favorite for women with long hair is the half-up, half-down hairstyle. However, the classic look is often worn with soft waves or curls on the ends. You can go for the hot 2014 trend wherein this look is worn sleek from the front to the crown and all the way to the ends.

     

    Slept-in Texture

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    The beachy wave was popular for its ability to exude an undone look – effortless style that is both casual and sexy. The slept-in texture that is starting to get big for 2014 is going to take that up a notch. The waves are softer and sleeker than beachy waves; as in second day hair, or your hair after you just slept in it, thus the name.

     

    Disheveled Top Knot

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    When you want to put your long hair up, the disheveled top knot is a great option in 2014. This hair might look like a hot mess but it is undeniably sexy. The characteristics of a disheveled knot includes no particular part, lots of smaller pieces of hair falling out of the knot, and lots and lots of texture!

     

    Segmented Ponytail

    Long Hair Styles Trending for 2014

    Looking for a fun and creative way to liven up your ponytail? Go for a segmented ponytail! It is up to you to create as many segments as you’d like (it can vary based on hair length and thickness). You can even opt for exaggerated bulges in-between each section for a more dramatic effect.

    Which of these long hairstyle trends for 2014 are you planning to try or are already rocking?

    Short Bob Hairstyles 7 Secret Weapons

    Why is it so many women have trouble cutting their hair shorter?  Short bob hairstyles are super cute, easy to manage and highly versatile.  If you want an edgy style, try an asymmetrical cut. If you are leaning toward something more casual with a hint of sophistication, opt for short bob hairstyles with layers or a stacked bobs.

    The stacked bob is a hot look this season. This style exudes a modern chic vibe and it flatters any face shape.  The smooth, polished look is easy to get for gals with straight or slightly wavy hair.  But, hair that has a more determined wave or curl to it, will do much better by adding layers, allowing the curls to flourish.  That way the hair will stay healthier, and styling will be cut to the minimum.

    Super Short Bob Hairstyle

    Short Bob Hairstyle Carey Mulligan put a whole new spin on short haircut ideas with this adorable look!  By creatively infusing a twisted bang with a couple of mini-fishtail braids up top, this short hairstyle stirred up a whirlwind!

    Asymmetrical Bob

    Short Bob Hairstyle

    The asymmetrical bob is characterized by one side of the hair being longer than the other.  In most cases, this type of bob leaves the front side of the hair long enough to fall just past the chin. This makes for a chic hairstyle – definitely a good option for those going for short hair.

    The Short Blunt Bob

    Katie Perry Short Bob Hairstyle

    Katie Perry radiates a classic vintage style in this short and sweet bob with blunt bangs. This is a good choice for women with oval, round or square shaped faces as the hairstyle elongates the face. It also makes the neck appear longer for a statuesque look. It is also a great hairstyle for women with fine hair as the bluntness of the cut creates the illusion of thicker hair, so women with fine hair love it!

    Choppy layering is a great way to introduce more texture and edginess to your bob, or any short hairstyle for that matter. This cutting technique creates volume, movement and texture to the hair.  Cutting irregular layers into the hair allows for more styling options and more attitude. Take inspiration from Julianne Hough!

    Short Bob Hairstyle with Side Swept Bangs

    Short Bob Hairstyle

    Nicole Richie’s side swept bangs look seriously chic coupled with her short bob haircut.  Adding bangs is a great way to shorten the look of longer faces while drawing attention to the eyes.

  •    How to Repair Damaged Hair   

    How to Repair Damaged Hair

    The Smart Girl’s Guide to How to Repair Damaged Hair

    We have all been there. As we look down at the counter and see little hairs covering our counter tops and we have lost count of the hairs we have pulled out of our hair brush, we find ourselves looking at our reflection in the mirror, wondering “Is my hair dry or damaged?”. Today’s tale is about how to repair damaged hair. There are three major levels of damage when it comes to your lovely locks.

    Mechanical Damage

    Your hair looks and feels dull (feels like the hair of your favorite childhood doll), little pieces of hair fall onto your clothes. In some cases the hair looks singed. (kinked and fuzzy)

    • The Cause -  brushing/teasing the hair (in excess – picture a 1950′s beehive), and using thermal styling tools without the proper products.
    • The Solution - A good conditioning treatment once a week such as Joico Kpak Intense Hydrator or Uans Crema, and using a thermal protection spray each time you use a flat iron or curling iron such as bain de terre Magnolia Thermal Iron Protector or Paul Mitchell Hot Off The Press.

    Environmental Damage

    Your color fades and it feels like product build up is on your hair. (doesn’t feel clean)

    • The Cause - Sun exposure and pollution.
    • The Solution - Most professional hair care lines have U.V. protectants in their products, and there are many spray leave in conditioners that have U.V. protectants as well, such as Matrix Biolage Daily Leave In Tonic and Sebastian Potion 9 Lite. A good clarifying shampoo once or twice a month (depending on how much product you use) will help as well, such as SOMA Clarifying Shampoo.

    Chemical Damage

    Your hair looks and feels fuzzy, it will not hold a style, looks like frayed cloth. It breaks off , inches at a time.

    • The Cause - over use of chemical services such as hair color, lightening, perming or chemical straightening.
    • The Solution - Stop whatever chemical process you are doing right now. Give your hair a break for a while – hats are in this season. You need to get a good deep conditioning treatment done with your stylist ASAP. If you can’t get to the salon – I highly recommend JOICO Kpak Revitaluxe. The newest addition to the Kpak family – this treatment is restorative and strengthens the hair with each use. For a leave in, Redken’s Extreme Anti Snap is terrific, just as it’s name states – it will help your hair from breaking or snapping off.

    I highly recommend that you use Professional Salon products. Many of the other brands on the shelves have too many sulfates, detergents, silicone’s and alcohol which defeats the purpose – your hair may feel good but those products don’t always penetrate the hair – they just coat the hair, which will lead to further damage.

Her tell it like it is approach is aimed at educating and enlightening clients, stylists and salon owners. She has also been the woman locked in the bathroom hating her hair.

  •    Celebrity Hairstyles from the Oscars   

    Celebrity Hairstyles

    Celebrity Hairstyles at the Oscars set the Tone for the year

    I pay close attention to celebrity hairstyles at the Oscars for the simple reason that it gives me insight into what hairstyle trends are likely to unfold throughout the year. Let’s face it the Oscars are the Superbowl for stylists. This is where they pull out the stops on their creative inspiration. This is where they get recognition for their skill. What happened Sunday night is having a powerful effect on what hair stylists are recommending to their clients this morning. So here are my favorites:

    Sandra Bullock

    Sandra Bullock’s long, wavy hair was swept to one side as the finishing touch to her glamourous, Old Hollywood hairstyle at this year’s Oscars.

     

    Celebrity Hairstyles

    Charlize Theron

    Charlize Theron showed up on the red carpet sporting her sleek, short hairstyle, parted on one side and swept back gently.

     

    Celebrity Hairstyles

    Kerry Washington

    Kerry’s hair is gently pinned back at the top, but left flowing gently over her shoulders, exposing her radiant smile and glow.

     

    Celebrity Hairstyles

    Jennifer Lawrence

    Jennifer Lawrence’s short hair was elegantly swept off her face at the Oscars, showing the versatility of her short, cropped cut.

     

    Celebrity Hairstyles

    Lupita Nyong’o

    Lupita is my fashion icon for the season, and every fashion icon has to have great hair. Her short, natural hairstyle is longer at the top but very close on the sides and perfectly accented with a single, glittery headband.

     

    Celebrity Hairstyles

    Idina Menzel

    Idina Menzel let those soft wavy curls go, and the result was absolutely beautiful.

     

    Celebrity Hairstyles

    Penelope Cruz

    Penelope Cruz swept her long, ombre locks into an elegant updo.

     

    Celebrity Hairstyles

    Emma Watson

    The ponytail is huge in hair fashion this year, and Emma Watson just showed the world how it’s done at this year’s Oscars. A few soft curls framing the face and less structure on the ponytail offers an effortlessly romantic look.

    Of course, I watch the Oscars each year hoping to celebrate my favorite performances, but we all secretly tune in for the red carpet fashion and celebrity hairstyles. This year’s Oscars did not disappoint, inspiring us all to imagine these glam looks on ourselves.

  •    Wedding Hairstyles for Long Hair 2014   

    Wedding Hairstyles

    Long wedding hairstyles for the beautiful bride!

    Have long hair? Lucky you!  With long hair you won’t have a lack of gorgeous wedding hairstyles to choose from.  Before making a decision on a hairstyle for your big day, take a look at these stunning wedding hairstyles for long hair!

    Wedding Hairstyles

    Vintage Roll

    Wedding hairstyles often look most stunning when understated like this vintage roll.

    Get The Look:

    Hair is neatly combed back, rolled under and pinned to secure. For a polished look use a shine product. I like Kiel’s Crème with Silk Groom which adds amazing shine, sans the grease.

    Who Can Wear It?

    This look works best with one-length or long layered hair and it suits most face shapes. However, the slicked back look can become severe looking with strong square facial features.

    Wedding Hairstyles

    Long Cascading Curls

    A half-updo is the perfect way to show off long, cascading curls.

    Get The Look:

    Use volumizing products and set with hot rollers. With a side parting, sides are swept up into a high ponytail at the crown. Use a bit of hair to wrap around the pony and hide the elastic. Use an iron to touch any weak curls and a finishing spray to hold the look.

    Who Can Wear It?

    This style works best on medium to thick hair with lots of body and shine. The long silhouette is ideal for oval, heart, square and round face shapes. If your face shape is oblong, ditch the height at the crown, add bangs and create some fullness on the sides.

    Wedding Hairstyles

    Grecian Curls 

    Not your Mama’s Grecian curls!

    Get The Look:

    This intriguing adaptation of Grecian curls involves a dramatic deep diagonal parting with colorful extensions for volume and aesthetics. This updo is best left done by professionals.

    Who Can Wear It?

    This wedding hairstyle works for oval, round, square and heart shape faces. Rectangular and oblong faces can take on a long appearance with this look, but you can try tempering that with full or partial bangs.

    Wedding Hairstyles

    Half Up – Half Down

    This style has become the classic wedding hairstyle.

    Get The Look:

    Hair is softly curled and backcombed before sweeping sides up and back to meet and pin in the middle. Secure your curls with a strong hold hairspray like Kenra Volume Spray 25.

    Who Can Wear It?

    This style is perfect for the bride who feels her best just being herself. This look fits oval, round, square and heart shaped faces best. Oblong faces will look longer with the added height at the crown.

    Wedding Hairstyles

    Braids and Buns 

    Braids and buns are a lovely pairing for long bridal hairstyles. The possibilities are virtually endless.

    Get The Look:

    Hair is sectioned off in front of the ears to be used for braiding. A section on top is backcombed and brushed into a low messy bun. This look combines a French braid in front which becomes a traditional braid across the back.

    Who Can Wear It?

    This works best with medium to thick hair. Thinner hair types could wear this by adding a braided hair extension.

    Wedding Hairstyles

    Mad about Mad Men?

    Retro wedding hairstyles are romantic, charming and exquisite.

    Get The Look:

    This elaborate chignon works best on second day hair. The top is backcombed heavily at the crown, smoothed and secured into a ponytail. Wrap pieces of the ponytail around fingers to create curls and pin. The fringe and sides are swept down and back with pieces pinned randomly into the chignon for a romantic effect.

    Who Can Wear It?

    Any woman who wants to be-a-dream on her wedding day! Take the time to find the perfect headpiece or hair accessory to pull the look together, like this pretty embellished chiffon bow!

    Wedding Hairstyles

    Soft Flower Braided Updo

    A large braid interspersed with flowers and baby’s breath . . . simply delightful.

    Get The Look:

    Hair is curled, backcombed and brushed into a loosely formed bun. Hair in front of the ears is left out for braiding and for piecing into the bun. Cascading tendrils are enchanting!

    Who Can Wear It?

    Braids look best with medium and thick hair, but extensions are an option. This style works for all face shapes. Round faces will look best with tendrils that show from the front.

    Wedding Hairstyles

     Soft Elegant Updo

    So pretty . . . so elegant.

    Get The Look:

    Keep your hair well hydrated and conditioned to reveal hairs natural body and shine in a glamorous, bride-worthy way. I love Macadamia Deep Conditioning Treatment and Healing Oil to bring out mega body and shine. Elegant wedding hairstyles like this side-swept updo don’t always require every hair to be in perfect place to be stunning!

    Who Can Wear It?

    The asymmetrical look works with all face shapes. Round or square faces may like to add some height to the crown which will add the appearance of length.

    Wedding Hairstyles

     Sophisticated High Bun

    An elegantly embellished high bun signifies the utmost in formality.

    Get The Look:

    It’s always calming to put yourself in the hands of a professional for your wedding hairstyle, but if you choose not to go that route, this sophisticated high bun is a surprisingly simple and easy updo to achieve.  A synthetic braid can be used to wrap around the base of the bun. 

    Who Can Wear It?

    This works well with medium –thick to fine hair.  Hair that is too heavy can become a big headache or hard to hold in place, so test it ahead of time to be certain it’s comfortable for the entire day.

     

    Long hair allows a bride so many possibilities of gorgeous wedding hairstyles to choose from.  So, where do you start?    Before making a decision, take a look at these thirteen exceptional wedding hairstyles for long hair to match your wedding theme!

Getting a new hair color is one of the quickest, most effective ways to revamp your look. Depending on your choice of hair dye, it can also make you look younger. But there are a lot of considerations to be made before opting to dye your hair – whether it is done by a professional or using your own home dyeing kit. The chemical treatment can have a significant impact on the overall health condition of your strands.

    Are you considering getting your hair dyed? There are a few things you need to know that will help you come to a decision. First off, dyed hair requires superior care and maintenance. Double processed hair, to be specific, is something you need to be willing to spend time and money on for optimum hair health. The biggest risk associated with dyed hair is the possibility of the hair’s natural texture changing. It will noticeably become drier and coarser to the touch. Make sure that you understand these before you proceed with dyeing your hair.

    Are you willing to invest time and money to care for your hair?

    Introducing hair dye and color chemicals into your hair can make it vulnerable to damage. The process aggravates the porosity of your hair, especially if you have existing issues from other chemical treatments. The hair’s internal protein structure is damaged in the process causing it to become less resilient when it comes to fighting other stressful issues that your hair is exposed to on a daily basis.

    In the process, you need to be aware that dyeing your hair will require you to invest in products designed for color-treated hair. A regular trip to the salon might be recommended, as well. It is important for a professional hair stylist to diagnose your hair condition and fight damage as it occurs.

    Is it the right time to dye?

    Another important consideration before you decide to dye your hair is the period of time in-between chemical treatments. If you just had a relaxer treatment, or any other chemical treatment for that matter, you need to think twice before getting dyeing your hair. The ideal time in between such treatments several weeks. If you can go for longer, then that would be much better.

    If you dye hair sooner than this recommended window, your hair cuticle will be aggravated. When the hair cuticle is under attack, you can expect to suffer from hair breakage.

    What is your hair’s existing condition? Is it in optimal health?

    The chemicals in the hair dye can beat down on the hair cuticle and make it exposed to damaging elements. You need to assess your hair’s condition before dyeing it. If you do not know how to assess your hair, you can always visit an expert hairstylist. They know what the characteristics of a healthy hair are. If you insist on dyeing hair that is not in top health will only add to the problem. Besides, you probably won’t be happy with the result either.

    Have you considered other semi-permanent hair color options?

    There are several types of products to color your hair available in the market. Have you taken the time to learn about them? Have you considered opting for the temporary hair color route, which is far less damaging on your hair and requires no long-term commitment?

    Hair shadows or hair chalk are quite popular these days. They are also good options if you would like to try out bright colors or hues.

    What kind of prepping to do for your hair?

    Another vital step to take care of if you are considering dyeing your hair is preparation. Hair care experts recommend that you need to undergo deep conditioning treatment before you dye hair. Choose a deep conditioning recipe that contains protein or keratin. This kind of treatment is intended to fortify the hair strands and introduce lots of moisture into each strand. Pre conditioned hair absorbs dye more effectively so you can get a vibrant new color, as well as protect your hair from further damage.

    The Wob Hairstyle 2014 or Wet Bob

    Hairstyles 2014 are Going to be Edgy

    Hairstyles 2014 center on relaxed elegance, minimalism and romantic looks; the Wob hairstyle, Braids, Ornate Ponytails, Flowers, headpieces, Page Boys, Gold Accessories, Loose Long and Wavy. Here are my favs that I think you’ll be seeing lots of:

    The Wob Hairstyle 2014 or Wet Bob

    The Wet Bob or “Wob”

    The “wob” or wet bob is basically a choppy, chin-length bob styled with products that make the hair appear exceptionally shiny and slightly messy. It’s a really edgy and super sexy look.

    Hairstyles 2014 Braids

    Old World Braids

    Braids are a huge trend now, because they add a simple but special touch to a basic hairstyle. 2014, though, instead of the very neat plaits we’ve seen in the past, braids are becoming far less structured. Think big steins, slightly messy, with a few wisps romantically framing the face in the front.

    Hairstyles 2014 Ornate Ponytail

    Ornate Ponytails

    We’re going to see some pretty elaborate ponytails in 2014 hairstyles.

    2014 Hairstyles-flowers

    The Floral Effect

    Nothing says romance like flowers, and it’s easier than ever to add this subtle touch to the hair. Flowers can be pinned into your braids or updo or simply added in where the hair is swept to the side for a more dramatic effect.

    Hairstyles 2014 Hairpiece

    Headpieces

    There’s nothing quite like an ornate hairpiece when you want to turn heads. Even understated headpieces can provide the perfect embellishment in 2014.

    Hairstyles 2014 page boy

    The Page Boy

    Essentially, the pageboy is a short bob hairstyle with long bangs. It’s updated in 2014 with enough choppiness to give it a head-turning edge. Easy maintenance.

    Hairstyles 2014 Gold Accessories

    The Midas Touch

    It doesn’t take much in the way of gold additions pinned into the hair to give you the Midas Touch!

    Hairstyles 2014 Loose Wavy

    Long Toussled Strands

    Long wavy hair that’s slightly toussled looks relaxed and effortless, yet very sexy.
