Five Ways to Totally Transform Your Hair
So if I can’t get in to see my stylist, I improvise my bangs myself. Now, I don’t recommend this at home, especially if you haven’t tried bangs before. However, I’ve done short, blunt bangs to long-swept ones. I know which looks work for my face shape and hair type. So I recommend seeing a professional if you’re new to this concept. If you think that you can manage it at home, I use a razor when cutting my bangs. Then, I finish with actual scissors.
Another concept that you can try at home is all-over color or highlights. Although I might add, I’m a fan of seeing a professional for this method as he/she is able to mix a customized color for you. Also, this avoids DIY color fading into something brassy or unattractive to your skin coloring. MOST hair stylists just know best. Also, I am a MAJOR advocate on color-safe shampoo. Trust me – it makes all the difference!
From beach waves to stick-straight, this can be the final touch to your look. I mean how fabulous did Reese Witherspoon look in the movie Water for Elephants?! Hair style can easily transport your look from casual to elegant. My favorite tools to pull off a specific hair style are my hair straightener, curling iron, Tresemme body shaping hair spray, Batiste dry shampoo spray and Moroccan treatment oil. Tresemme’s hair spray allows movement to my hair, but it holds my style all day. Batiste dry shampoo gives me volume and allows me to style my hair. It’s true! Dirty hair is the easiest to style! Finally, Moroccan treatment oil provides my hair with the nourishment it needs to stay soft and protect it from my heating tools.
OMG hair extensions are so fun! They’re so affordable now too, and they look real! So maybe I cut my hair short, and I’m missing my long hair. I can just buy a clip-in, and I have instant long hair again. Also, another trend that I’m dying for right now is rainbow ombre. This look requires bleaching the hair to add the desired color, especially if your hair is darker like mine. However, I just bought small fuchsia hair extensions that I can clip in the front areas of my hair. I love love love them!
When the above suggestions aren’t enough, there’s nothing better than going short! Every now and then, I’ll chop it off to an asymmetrical style where the front ends are longer and lean forward. It’s such a chic style, and it’s so easy to style in big, beachy waves or in 20’s fingerwaves (make small braids when hair is wet).
