Top 4 Quick Fix For Bad Hair Days

Published

on

Is it a coincidence that just when we need to look our best our locks look their worst? Of course, we could blame decades of chemical treatments, as well as daily heat styling and attempts to turn our locks into what they’re not. Instead of a healthy, glossy and enviable mop, we look in the mirror and find thin, stringy, frizzy, damaged, dry, dull, dyed and fried strands that suck the life out of our fabulous 50-plus faces. Even celebs are not immune to BHD syndrome. Here are 4 new tricks to turn tresses in distress into coiffures of confidence.

A Ruse With Unexpected Color

While not for every woman, temporary pastel blues, lavenders and pinks are adding spice to damaged hair. Most of us won’t go so far as Jenny McCarthy’s (top center) blue bob or Lisa Lampanelli’s (right) blue and gray crop, but adding supersubtle candy-color tips like Cindi Lauper’s (bottom center) locks and colorful clip-in extensions like Vivica A. Fox’s (left) top-knot mix add edgy glam fast. For a head-turning one-day or night statement and solution, try a spray-on wash out-with-shampoo temporary color like L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Hair Color Spray ($7, target.com) in blue, pink and lavender, or try Splat Instant Color Hair Chalk ($6, target.com) and just do the ends or one big streak.

“Equip” A Bang

If you already have a fringe the solution is simple (and if not, add them ASAP). Pull the rest up in a ponytail or topknot and let those feathery, brow-grazing face framers do the flattery work, like (from left) Halle Berry, Molly Ringwald, and Linda Evans. Since hair grows about a half inch a month, bangs fatten up first and are always are the healthiest part of your hair. Plus, they give the illusion of more hair and cover a receding hairline. Head for a salon snip today.

Cut it

Long damaged hair — especially stringy or broken dry hair — responds to a chop. Book a salon appointment for that day and bring plenty of photos on your mobile to make sure you and your stylist are communicating exactly how far to go. While this is an extreme change, if not now … when? You will be eliminating hair beyond repair and starting fresh. Consider your color, too. Shorter locks could be a good time to start going grayish like (from left) Sharon Stone or taking the drama up a notch for a spiky effect like Gladys Knight or Joan Jett.

Make Your Hair Shiny

Shiny hair looks healthy. Dry, dull hair requires a once- or twice-weekly deep-conditioning mask to restore hydration. It also deserves the fastest blow-dry to prevent scorching. Upgrade to a dryer that uses tourmaline and ionic technology to shorten drying time with a post-dry cool-shot button for a vibrant glossy look, like (from left) Michelle Yeoh, Lela Rochon, and Bo Derek. A few tone-on-tone discreet highlights also amp up sparkle for any color hair (even gray or white) and keep dark hair colors from looking harsh.

Messy bobs are oh so fashionable and recreating this look is simple. Start by opting for a crop which falls an inch or so above the shoulder.

Blending purple and cream together will give your hair the subtle pop of colour you’ve craved. Starting with a purple shade at the roots, gently blend to cream throughout the rest of the hair.

5 Spring Hair Trends All Fashion Girls Are Wearing

Published

on

Somehow, hair is almost always the last thing we remember to do after all the makeup routine. Maybe it is because we can always forgive any bad hair day and transforms it into complacency. But, new hair trend is always interesting to follow even though it can be daunting as well. Trying new looks can be tiresome and time-consuming. The great thing about this spring’s trend is, the less-is-better look is the approach for the hair trend. Buns and ponytails are flourishing, fun accessories are in the spotlight as well. To prove that following the spring’s hair trend is not that hard, continue to scroll through the list below.

Long, Flowy Hair With A Hat

Remember the day when we have a bad hair day and would just put our hair below a baseball cap? Well, this trend is similar to that. You do get to put your hair below a hat. The difference is instead of hiding all of your hair, you got to show your long, and flowy hair. If your hair is already straight naturally, you just need to brush it down and spritz some hairspray to hold the hair and avoid the spritz. But, if your natural hair is anything other than straight, use a flat iron to straighten your hair and then spritz some hairspray.

High Ponytails

How high are the ponytails should be, you ask? Go to Ariana Grande for the role model. Yes, the higher your ponytail is, the better it is. This trend is especially perfect for the hot, sticky weather we will have in summer. The catch on this trend, however, is, this can apply only on long hair. If you have rather shorter hair and want to try this trend, try adding a hair extension.

Bobby Pins + Center Part

This trend shows exactly how low maintenance this spring’s hairstyle has been. All you have to do is brush your hair and part them at the center. Afterward, you just use bobby pins to hold your hair behind your ears. Finish the look with some spritz of hairspray. FYI, bobby pin is not a new trend. Together with barrettes, they have been a very popular hair trend. The bonus, bobby pins are very cheap.

Slick Back

Again, this hair trend is one of those low maintenance ones. To get this trend done right, all you have to do is brush your hair slick back. To get the wet, tidy look, use some strong hold hairspray to avoid any frizz. This trend is perfect if you are in a hurry. It is effortless, yet very chic, look clean, and put-together.

Low Knot

We have to be honest that low knot is probably the most beloved and popular hair trend so far this spring. All you have to do is brush your hair back, put it in a low ponytail, then just round your hair around the root of the ponytail. Secure the end to the hair scrunchies or for a stronger hold, put some bobby pins. Not only this style looks good, but it also takes only seconds to make and a no-brainer antidote when your hair refuses to cooperate.
