Celebrity Stylist Shares Secrets For Terrific Hair

Hair care expert Tim Rogers, who has among his clients Yoko Ono, Missy Rayder, Diane Sawyer, Kelly Gray, Samantha Boardman and Amanda Peet, combed through some of the secrets he gives celebrities when they have a bad hair day and came up with a few you may use:

Q. Any advice on how I can take better care of my hair?

A. Wash hair no more often than every other day. Water can be very drying to hair, exacerbating frizz and static flyaways. Wash with lukewarm water and always follow with a conditioner. Protect color-treated hair. New Results Colour Bright shampoo and conditioner are created specifically for treating and protecting multitonal hair shades. Don’t forget sunscreen. The sun’s rays can strip away natural oils as well as the pigment that gives hair its color. The sun can weaken hair cuticles, causing peeling, breaking and split ends. Defend hair with a hat and products with UV filters and keratin, for strength and elasticity.

Q. I need a new hairstyle. Can you help?

A. Take advantage of the multitude of virtual stylists on the Internet. Web sites like www.smartfixx.com offer comprehensive advice from salon professionals. Online, you can access info on trends 24/7. There’s step-by-step styling advice in video you can play, pause, rewind and download to see how to get the look you like.

Q. I’m thinking of changing my hair color from blond to red. What’s the best way?

A. Redheads aren’t defined by “light or dark” but by tone. Consider which works with your skin. Glossing treatments deposit tone without lightening hair for maximum reflection and minimum damage. They’re a great way to deliver customized shades of red.

Q. I’m a guy and I really like my new short hairstyle but it requires multiple styling products mostly created for women. Are there multipurpose products men can use?

A. Some really great unisex styling lines-like the new one from Charles Worthington London-have what you need. For short hair, wax sticks or gel strips are fantastic multipurpose options for keeping hair in place, taming flyaways or giving it a textured, spiky look. My favorite products from this Smart Fixx line are the H2O Styling Strips, which you can get at drugstores. Simply add the gel to wet hair with your fingertips. The strips come in a convenient pocket pack for on-the-go styling.

Condition for your hair type, says celebrity stylist Tim Rogers.

Tips for Choosing Your Wedding Hair Style

Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. After all, this will be the most important day of her life. This is where she and her groom will pronounce their vow of love for each before their family, relatives and friends. This is so important that even a very good-looking girl wants to look better, or something different from how she looks every day.

Choosing how you should look during a wedding can be very risky. If you were not advised by a professional, this is not the time to try on new make up and hairstyle trends – unless you wanted to end up as one with the worst wedding fashion.

So, to be on the safe side, it is better to enlist the help of a professional stylist to do your makeup and hairstyle.

Here are some tips to help you on what look you will be having on your wedding day.

* Choose natural-looking makeup, as you don’t want to look heavily painted especially when people come to wish you well. However, you should also make sure that even if you are wearing natural-looking makeup, this still looks well when your picture is taken.

* Get a facial to help eliminate the stress in preparing for the wedding and to cleanse your skin, in preparation for the big day.

* Make sure that you have enough time to prepare your hair. Usually, you may need about six weeks before the wedding to make minor changes to your hair. If you will be changing your hairstyle, hair color, or length, you may need up to six months.

* Make an appointment with a hairdresser recommended by your family and friends, or with your own hairdresser. It is better to bring pictures of the dress, headpiece and the hairstyles that you would like to try. Also, discuss with the hairdresser what will be the appropriate color, texture and the style.

* If you are thinking of having your hair permed or relaxed, ask the hairstylist if he or she thinks this will not damage your hair. Damaged hair will not look good and will be difficult to style. If you wanted to try this, make sure that you still have enough time to experiment and to undo it if it doesn’t look good.

* If you are thinking of dyeing your hair, consider if the color will compliment your skin color and the color of your eyes. It is better to ask the help and suggestions of a professional for this. When dyeing, use a temporary dye first.

* Your hairstyle should go well with the cut of your gown. If you have a simple gown, choose an uncomplicated hairstyle. Choose a hairstyle that will be comfortable and will not be difficult to maintain since you will have a lot of things to take care of on the wedding day.

* If you have short hair, you may add highlights to enhance the richness. You may also have hair treatments or try products that will add shine. You can also try a multi-textured look. Flowers also look good on short hair.

* If you have a long hair, it is suggested that you wear your hair up for an elegant look and to minimize the need for maintaining it, since you will be busy the whole day.

Now that you have these tips, you have more information when your hairstylist starts making suggestions on how to make you look great on your wedding day.

Bring Back Your Hair With These Tips (2)

Bring Back Your Hair With These Tips

Hair loss is a concern for many people that are beginning to age, as it can become unattractive and embarrassing. You don’t have to suffer from hair loss. Read this article for some tips on how to prevent hair loss as much as possible, as well as treat hair loss after it begins.

Try not to tie your hair tightly too often. What happens when you do this is that it trains your hair to grow closer to the surface and may eventually just loose the hold on your scalp and start falling out. The hair that is toward the front of your head is most vulnerable to this.

Hair loss can demonstrate that the body is in poor health, before any illness is detected. Eating healthy foods is necessary to ensure that your body gets the minerals and vitamins it needs. Getting the right amount of nutrients is important to your hair health as well as your body’s health.

One tip to avoid the thinning and breakage of hair, is to avoid combing your hair with a fine-toothed comb when your hair is wet. Even though combing hair when it has just been washed is a tempting practice since hair de-tangles and straightens more easily when it is wet, this is a common cause of hair breakage and loss. The combing process applies immense stress on the hair’s shaft, when it it wet and it weakens the roots of your hair.

If you are on the swim team in high school or college, or you just like to use the pool a lot, refrain from staying underwater too long. Soaking your hair in water for a long time can lead to dryness and hair loss. Wearing a swimming cap can really help. Use a quality conditioner to help to protect your hair.

Be careful on which hairstyles you’re choosing if you’re losing your hair if you don’t want it falling out. Pony tails, braids, corn rows, and other hair styles such as this may pull the hair loose due to the follicle being in a weakened state. And once the hair falls out it most likely will not grow back.

When you take a shower in the morning, make sure that you wash all the shampoo out of your hair. Leaving traces of shampoo on your scalp during the day can make your hair very brittle. Wash your hair with water for an extra ten seconds to reduce all traces of shampoo.

Massage your scalp. This helps with preventing hair loss and helps hair grow back. Massaging your scalp will help the blood and nutrients circulate in your scalp. Just rub your head with your fingers in a slow circular motion. When it gets warm and tingly it means the blood is flowing.

As said previously, hair loss is not something most people look forward to. Besides being an obvious sign of aging, it can signify that you aren’t as healthy as you could be. Remember the tips in this article to prevent and even treat hair loss, so you can maintain your lovely locks.
