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.

10 Hair Color Trends Dominating Mid 2019

Published

on

We are officially in the middle of the year. Which means, 2019 is not new anymore. Most hair cuts and colors that were trending in the early 2019 are most likely no longer trendy anymore. With Anne Hathaway’s shaggy bob and Camilla Mendes’s shaggy lob, Hollywood has proven that the trend in haircut is changing. And now, a new crop of hair color trend is taking over the Instagram. And spoiler, they are all really good. So, before you go to a hair salon and color your hair whatever color you wanted before, go check the list below.

Living Coral Hair

Living Coral is Pantone’s Color Of The Year 2019. So, it makes sense that the color can be seen everywhere. This shade of coral is way more muted than the classic megawatt color, which looks more natural. The downside of this color is you need to bleach your hair first. Unless, of course, your natural hair is blonde.

Glitch Hair

This trend does look very futuristic. The look combines the colors of the rainbow to make it glitching. If you are not sure with a full-glitch on, ask for multi-colored trend on the underside of your hair to your hair stylist.

Lilac Hair

Lilac color is best described as light purple. This shade starting to gain speed by the end of 2018 but comes in full force recently. Searches for “lilac hair” in Pinterest are up over 1000 percent.

Chestnut Brown And Gold Hair

The chestnut color is already a very popular color. But, its trend gets a slight upgrade due to the light highlights. The best part about this color is, it is so easy to maintain. Especially if you are starting with a brown base.

Inky Black Hair

No, this isn’t the angsty shade you had during your goth phase in high school. This rich, inky-black is all about the shine. The glossier your hair is, the better it is. Once you have the color, preserving the shade is crucial. So, you better stock up on color-enhancing products.

Ash Gray Hair

Ash gray is the best color for those who want a darker in the roots but lighter gray toward the ends.

Pastel Pink Hair

It isn’t often that a wearable color hair comes off the runaway. But the pastel hues dotten the Marc Jacobs Spring 2019 runaway may just inspire you to go bold. Models wore all kinds of pastel colors. But it was the soft, cotton-candy pink that stole the show.

Baby Blonde Hair

Last year, it was platinum hair that stole the hair color trend. But if you want to switch your platinum hair but doesn’t want to stray away from blonde-ish color, then baby blonde is the right choice. Just make sure to ask your hair stylist to lean toward pale blonde rather than the pure icy to keep it from washing you out.

Chocolate Brown And Copper Hair

This trend is still following the 2018’s obsession with rich, fiery colors. But, the recent trend leans over toward lower-key color. Combining chocolate brown with all over copper highlights.

Strawberry Honey Hair

This color is the perfect middle ground between golden blonde and vibrant copper. This creamy shade is the subtle way to dive into a red shade without going straight toward the fire-engine color.

How To Avoid The Awkward Grow-Out Phase Of Your Bangs

Published

on

Bangs can be cute, I will admit that. But it can be a lot of hard work. Being committed to bangs required so much time. Between the dry shampooing, the blow dry, the trimming, I swear sometimes giving up sounds like the best idea. But the one thing people don’t complain enough yet I find it to be really annoying is the awkward phase of growing out your bangs. The first couple months after your first cut, the bangs will look good. But after that, the bangs will grow uncontrollably and all we can do is try to style them as best as we can. Praying much that our bangs don’t look too weird. But don’t worry. Here I come with five tips on how to avoid that awkward phase when you are growing your bangs.

The Headband

Some people don’t really like this option as they find it to be more hard work than the bangs. But I find a headband to be very helpful. It is very easy and will definitely keep your annoying-length of bangs out of the way. If you are afraid the headband will slip off, try the messy, textured, wavy hairstyle. First, make the loose waves with the curling iron. Afterward, don’t forget to apply some dry texturizing spray to give your waves a light hold.

Clipped Back

Barrettes are back in town, people! Yes, if you look on Instagram, you will see so many fashion girls wearing barrettes. Even if you don’t think they are fashionable enough, they are very useful in keeping your bangs away from your face. To wear them, first part your hair into two. Then using a fine-tooth comb, slick down your hair, including your bangs for around two inches. Spray some hair spray to keep your hair tidy. Lastly, once your front hair and bangs are smooth and secured, put on hair clips around three inches from the roots and tuck them behind your ears. For the rest of your hair, mist a volumizing spray on your roots and salt spray on the rest of your hair. The idea is to create smooth, silky textures for the front of your hair and bangs part. And wavy, rough textures for the rest of your hair.

Braided Roots

This style is especially perfect if you don’t wash your hair every day. To make a braided root, first, apply some dry shampoo to sop up grease and give some extra grit and hold for the braid. Next, grab three inches of hair from above the forehead, including the bangs. Section off a triangular mohawk from your hairline all the way to the crown of your head. Then braid your hair tightly so your bangs don’t pop out. Braid until the crown of your hair then secure with a hair tie. Continue to braid the tail down until the end. To secure the braid, apply some hairspray along.

Bobby-Pin Twist

For this hairstyle, all you need is a bunch of colorful bobby pin. First, part your hair into two in the center. Then, twist around an inch of your hair from your hairline, including the bangs. Twist on both sides until you reach above the ears. Secure the twists with some crisscrossed bobby pins. For extra hold, repeat the X pattern of the bobby pins an inch below the previous pins. Lastly, mist some hair spray to keep the bobby pins and the twists in place.

Braided Crown

This hairstyle, in particular, needs a little extra effort compared to some above. First, what you have to do is to make textures for your hair so your bangs won’t pop out from the braid. So, sprinkle some texturing powder on your roots and along the hairline. Then, make a deep side part on your hair. Next, french braid your hair along the hairline, including your bangs up to just right above the ear. Secure the braid with crisscrossed bobby pins. To make sure the bobby pins and the braid stay in place, put a hair clip over the bobby pins.

Published

on

With winter is over, we must be thanking the universe that the season of cool temperature and low moisturizer is gone. Now we can say goodbye to dull and brittle hair, hidden under a beanie for four straight months.
Spring with its warmer temperature is the start for a healthier hair. It means new time for a new cut or a new color. In stark contrast to the pure mess our hair has to endure during the winter time, a hairstylist said that the trend for spring time is healthy, shiny strands with fun, cool accessories.

Jewel-Toned Accessories

Statement accessories have been in the hair trend for quite some times. But in this spring 2019, the world will be seeing more of shiny jewel-toned embellishment than ever. Like jewelry for your hair, jeweled pins have become hairstylists and their A-list clients favorite.

High Ponytail

This type of hairstyle can be a pain in the ass. But for this spring, grab your Advil as the higher your ponytail, the cooler it’s gonna be. For a celebrity role model, take a look at how Ariana Grande style her hair. If you don’t have the thick volume of hair like the singer, a hair extension might be the answer. To get the sleek look, mist your hair with hairspray before putting it into a ponytail. The grit will keep the band from slipping after you tie it.

Blunt Cuts

Apparently, celebrities are getting tired of their old, dull, split ends hair. Currently, they are pursuing a fuller and healthier hair. Most have cut their hair short, leaving blunt ends with a soft and loose texture. To get those celebrity looks, cut your hair with lots of choppy layers than going with a super straight edge. To finish the look with a sleek style, spritz your hair with the heat-protectant spray then lightly flat-iron sections to make the end looking sharp and defined.

Oversized Snap Clips

Recently, the trend from the 90s has sort of come back from the grave. The hair world sees a lot of 90s accessories make a comeback, such as claw clips and scrunchies. But this spring, in particular, we will see the resurrection of snap clips. Yes, you read that right. The bigger your snap clips are, the better they are. The difference between nowadays snap clips and the 90s ones is the 2019 snap clips are not used to hold on to bangs only but rather as a bold statement. Which means you can wear them with any style you want.

Short And Mid-Length Cuts

There were times when everyone was spotting long-cut, Rapunzel style hair. But this spring 2019, a lot of celebrities are spotted with a rather shorter hair cut. The primary uno cut being chosen is the one between jawline and collarbone. These lengths make it easier to dress with fashion-forward pieces such as high neckline, ruffles, and detailed collar.
