2010 Hair Trends

February 25, 2010

What I’ve been noticing in a lot of fashion magazines are several hair styles repeated. So they must be hair trends for 2010!

Here are what I’ve noticed:

Braids-to the side, loose, fish tail, and perfect for growing out your fringe style

Tips: no time to fix your hair? Braids is your answer!

Natural textures: embrace what your mama gave you! love those curls, sweep it up softly for a loose up do

High pony tail: it’s not just for the gym, it’s high fashion!

Tips: Add a creamy, medium to heavy hold to comb your hair up. Use a boar bristle brush to really slick your hair back, spray baby hairs when you got it all up

Middle part & loose waves: do together or separate, the bohemian chic look, very natural and airy

Tips: not too much stiff products, when starting wet, blow dry all your hair forward to give a little lift. Add some curl products. I love Bumble n Bumble Curl Conscious Creme!! it holds just enough of your curl, reduces frizz and best of all NOT stiff!

For stick straight hair, take random sections and simply wrap around iron. It’s simple because you don’t want a prom look! Add a little shine on your ends. Try Bumble and Bumble Defrizz, can be used on wet hair but best on dry hair

Lastly, Straight bangs/Full Fringe: I love bangs because even if you don’t have time to style your hair, just make sure your bangs are in place and put on a cute hat, do a side pony tail, or just leave your hair down.

Tips: make sure your bangs are fully wet, and you have a clean face, you don’t want your bangs sticking to your forehead grease! take a brush and hold your blowdry hitting the top of your bangs. Use your brush to do a criss cross action with your bangs. This neutralizes any cowlicks that causes your bangs to pop up

Quick tip to looking younger, or avoid looking aged:

Since aged skin tends to be dry, Stick to creamy blushes and eyeshadows. Powder blushes and eyeshadows tend to settle into your fine lines and wrinkles.

Creamy blushes and eyeshadows can “plump” up your skin, give you a dewy healthier glow!

Most importantly, Be active! Smile! Have fun! and you won’t worry about how you look as you age.

Harajuku ready!

February 23, 2010

Just a couple weeks ago, I took my number 1 hair model, Laura from Dime Piece, back to brunette for the Metro Pop Magazine Shoot. Check out that post HERE

Now, I took her lighter. Ready for Japan with Joy Rich this week!

A timed and  fast pace process.

I decolorized her whole head.

Foiling the top part, where her hair is the longest, to make sure the application was even.

You need to keep an eye on the process, seeing what color is coming up.

When we reached a desired color, I toned her a couple shades darker.

Did you know that most of the sun damage you see on your face when your older (40’s+) happened early on in life around your 20’s… This is why sun block is very important!!! When you tan wear at least 15 spf .
