Selena Gomez opts for ombre look

Selena Gomez opts for ombre look

Although Selena Gomez is still young and learning her way around Hollywood, she seems to know a bit about looking fashionable. Not only does she make wise choices when it comes to her makeup, but her hair as well.

Recently, Us Weekly magazine reported that Gomez dyed her hair a light shade of brown (quite different from her natural black) and opted for lighter color at the tips, capitalizing on the ever-so-popular ombre look. Many people who’ve seen Gomez on the streets say she’s barely recognizable with her new ‘do! This is one of the many changes that the actress and singer has exhibited since splitting from her equally famous ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber.

Ombre, which essentially involves dyeing the ends of your hair lighter than the rest, is a trend that continues to circulate around Hollywood. However, it may require you to apply bleach to your hair to achieve the color you desire if you have a naturally dark color like Gomez. Hollywood Life claims that if you’re unsure how to go about creating this look, it’s in your best interests to consult a professional. He or she can also recommend hair products to help you maintain your appearance.

It's time to adopt a Boho look in time for summer

As more celebrities begin to take advantage of summer makeup and hair products, we’re seeing an increase in Boho looks! It seems that more women are attempting to say, “I don’t care how my hair looks,” with their tresses as of late. One of these women is Ashley Benson, the star of the hit television show “Pretty Little Liars.”

Recently, the blonde bombshell was spotted at a concert with waves in her hair and something rather unusual – yarn! Glamour magazine reported on the celebrity sighting, claiming that yarn is going to be extremely popular this season. Ditch the headbands and opt for good old-fashioned string if you want to look chic in 2013!

Kate Hudson is another celebrity who’s adopting the Boho look just in time for summer. She was spotted at the Tribeca Film Festival with her hair down, full of waves that really showed the crowd that she couldn’t care less about her locks! She made it work, and you can too with a volume-infusing hair spray and a quick blow-dry with a round brush, according to Hollywood Life.

Do you know what hair 'dos are hot this spring?

If you feel like you’re missing out on some of the hottest hair trends of the season, there’s no better time to brush up on the latest styles than now! Celebrities on the red carpet are doing a fantastic job of giving everyday women a little bit of inspiration.

One of the biggest trends in hair as of late seems to be the pixie cut, according to the Pittsburgh Gazette. Actress Charlize Theron is the latest to sport this ‘do, and it takes a brave woman to go without long, luscious locks! However, you might want to try this style if you’re getting tired of maintaining your hair with specialized shampoos and conditioners.

Another trend that you can consider is curly hair, which is also becoming popular around Hollywood. While some people find curls difficult to keep up, there are many hair styling products on the market today that can combat issues such as frizz.

If you aren’t sure about how curly hair will look on you, Allure magazine recommends opting for layers. This can give you the volume you need to rock some waves regardless of how your ‘do naturally looks on your head!

1. Beachy hair
Even if you don’t live near the ocean, you can still rock this trend at the office or out to dinner with friends, according to Grazia magazine. Allow your locks to air dry, then run your fingers through them with a bit of mousse in your hands to create a chic, messy look.

2. Knots
No, not the kind you struggle to untangle – Harper’s Bazaar magazine claims that tying your long hair into a loose, casual knot to keep it in place is just perfect for spring. Best of all, no ponytail elastic needed!

Parting your hair differently can give you a new look

Parting your hair differently can give you a new look

If you’re tired of the way your hair looks but you aren’t ready to opt for a new cut, there are a few tricks you can use to make your ‘do appear more intriguing. With the right styling tools and hair products, you can drastically alter the look of your tresses without going to too much trouble.

The Stir, a female-oriented blog, claims that your hair can tell people a lot about your personality. For this reason, you might want to get started on your initiative sooner rather than later! All you need to begin with is a comb. After brushing through any lingering tangles, start splitting your hair in different directions at the part. You can even move the area where your hair is parted to a different side if you want to make a noticeable change.

It might take some effort to get your locks to fall in a new direction, especially if you’ve had your hair parted a certain way for an extended period of time. Elle magazine recommends using a light hairspray or gel to keep it in place. You can also apply a little heat with a blow dryer to maintain your appearance.

Could you see yourself with candy-colored hair?

Could you see yourself with candy-colored hair?

If you think you could go for a new hair do, you might want to consider adding color to your locks – bright colors! The Huffington Post recently reported on Anna Sui’s spring fashion show, in which models were seen sporting colorful wigs. The idea behind the look was candy inspired, which appears to be a trend in 2013. Take Kelly Osbourne, for instance, who’s been rocking lavender tresses for months!

Sui herself is renowned for sporting colorful hair in the 1970s, and her personal taste seems to have translated onto the runway. However, this look isn’t for everyone – what if you could never envision yourself with pink hair? Do you find it difficult to picture yourself with blue tresses?

If you’re intrigued by the idea of coloring your hair but you don’t know where to begin, Real Simple magazine recommends enlisting the help of an expert. However, you may be able to do a little experimentation on your own at home if you’re simply trying to cover up some grays. Products on the market today make it easy for women of all experience levels to dye their hair and look like pros.

3 ways to get the popular bed head look

3 ways to get the popular bed head look

Everyone's doing it in Hollywood – more women are flaunting the bed head look with ease, and now you can be one of them, too! If you're used to having your 'do prim and proper, now is the time to let your hair down and inject some fun into your routine. Here are three easy steps toward achieving the bed head look.

1. Skip the wash
Avoid shampoo and conditioner for a day if you want to truly get that "I just rolled out of bed" look. Seventeen magazine claims that your hair's natural oils will do all of the beautifying for you!

2. Give it some waves
Use a round brush and apply a little heat to your hair to create a few curls. This can give your tresses some bounce and provide a messier, unstructured look that's to die for.

3. Use mousse
Hairspray can be too stiffening in this instance as you try to create a light, airy appearance. Instead, add a little mousse to your hands, then run them through your hair. This will establish the bed head look and help you keep it in place throughout the day.

How to incorporate braids and buns in the same hairstyle

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Here's how you can incorporate braids and buns into the same hairdo!

If you’re tired of choosing between the same few hairstyles every day, it’s probably time to find a new go-to ‘do. While down, up and half-up are all easy, something more fun will add variety and spice up your look! Why not try combining trendy braids with buns in the same hairstyle, like The Beauty Department did? Here’s how!

First, you’ll need to make sure that your hair has a good texture with plenty of hold. This can be achieved by using dry shampoo or by not washing your hair before styling.

Now separate a section of hair from either side of your head and pin them forward, getting them out of the way.

Next, create two buns in the back of your head – one on top of the other. Hold them in place with bobby pins or a small elastic.

Once those are done, unpin the front sections and braid them, securing the ends with a small elastic.

Finally, wrap one braid underneath the bottom bun, through the middle and up around the top bun. Pin it securely in place. Then wrap the other braid over the top bun, down through the middle and around the bottom bun before pinning it. The two braids should cross each other in the middle of the buns.

Finish up with a hairspray like Fekkai – COIFF Sheer Hold Hairspray and you’re good to go!

Top 5 holiday hairstyles to try this year

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Still looking for the perfect holiday hairstyle?If your makeup, outfit and shoes are all picked out for this season's holiday parties but you're still looking for the perfect hairstyle, you're in luck! There are tons of fabulous ideas out there just waiting to be tested. Here are the top five styles to consider.

1. Chic bun. Whether you use a sock, a twist or a hair donut to shape your bun, you'll need a great sheer hold hairspray to slick down those flyaways for a sleek finish. 

2. Volumized French twist. According to Allure magazine, this style is an updated take on the classic. Just create plenty of volume up front so it's like a pompadour, then twist as usual in the back.

3. Face-framing twists. After blowing out your hair, take a section from either side of your face (at the temples) and twist them back. Pin or clip them in place in the center of the back of your head.

4. Accessorized. No matter what style you go with, it never hurts to go bold with an accessory, whether it's visible colored bobby pins, a headband, a brooch or feathers.

5. Glam waves. After blowdrying and applying glossing cream, create a deep side part and curl your hair with a large curling iron. Brush them out until they're super shiny.
