new years eve hair inspiration…

I love the old Hollywood glamour of the first look! I think that’s how I’m going to do my hair for NYE!!! I can’t wait! I have a light, dusty pink and black sequin dress I will be partying in all night! {don’t you love the sequin shoes I slip in there too}

The half-up do is so girlie sophisticated chic. Adding a little sparkle or feather or flower hair accessory jazzes up any simple black dress. Instantly you are New Years Eve festive!

I love both these styles because you have your hair partically or all the way down, because you can’t truly dance your heart out without your hair flying around on the dance floor…that said…if you pick the Zooey Deschanel style don’t for get the BOBBY PINS 🙂

Have a happy and safe New Years everyone!!!

I was surfing the web today and stumbled on Dolce & Gabbana’s Summer 2010 collection and fell in love!! So I just have to share it with everyone….I know this isn’t really hair related but I do love the styling they did with the hair.

amazing shoes and hair!

So I'm sort of in love with these shoes! I don't know how much they cost, but I kind of don't want to know because I know I couldn't afford them!! haha

I love this hair look. She looks angelic/sexy but tough with her boots on!!

To achieve this look and be one step ahead of the trends you want to start with wet hair, just out of the shower. Towel dry your hair so it is only damp.

If you have curly or wavy hair add a quarter size of straightening cream into the ends of your strands.

If you already have straight hair add a small amount of smoothing serum to the bottom half of your hair.

For you curly/wavy hair girls, let your hair air dry as much as possible before blow drying it with a flat paddle brush. Part your hair down the center of your head, drawing a line with your finger from the tip of your nose all the way back to the crown of your head.

Ok, now just blow dry your hair with the flat brush. Don’t worry about getting is super straight, because thats not the point to this look. Just make it look effortless. I always think thats a funny saying because whenever a hairstyle looks effortless you know a stylist spent plenty of time on the “effortless” look…anyways….

Blow dry your hair trying not to create volume. The flatter the hair sits against the head the better!

To finish/set the look I would spray the bottom 3/4 of my hair (avoiding the roots) with a shine serum. Don’t try and hide your fly-aways, because they are all over in this look. Just give your hair a healthy shine and ta-da!! You’re finished!

Tell me what you think about this summer 2010??? Will you be rocking this winter and spring???

searching for a new salon? four {must knows}

October 6, 2009

Picking a new hair salon can be a difficult undertaking, because there are so many out there. You don’t want to end up with a choppy hair cut, in a dirty, messy salon with hair all over or an overly aggressive stylist trying to convince you into a style you know just isn’t what you want!

Here are a couple of quick things every girl should think about before scheduling an appointment…

1. Recommendations!!!

Find friends you trust and ask them of any salons they would recommend. I would suggest asking a girl that has similar hair as yours and someone who has similar sense of style as you. Style…being how they dress, accessorize and wear their hair. This sounds kind of picky, but someone’s idea of a great hair style could be totally different if they prefer their hair to have blunt ends and you prefer a more natural, effortless look. Be sure to ask why they recommend them and who their stylist was.

If you are new in town look for recommendation on salon’s websites or call the salon and ask if they would provide recommendation contacts you could call/email. If you are feeling really ambitions and gutty, ask a girl who’s hair and sense of style you like where she gets her hair done while getting cup of coffee or shopping at the mall. Start it off like this…”Excuse me, this may sound like a weird questions, but I’m new in town and looking for a new hair salon to get my hair done at and I really like your hair cut and style. What salon do you get your hair done at?”

2. Schooling

Many salon’s have information on their website about what kind of schooling their stylist have gone through. You want to make sure the stylists know what they are doing before they touch you hair! If they don’t have anything on their site, just give them a quick call and they will be more than happy to give you that information. If they don’t give you the info or don’t know…don’t go there!

3. Products

After getting recommendations from my friends, I always like to know what products they use at the salon. I am an Aveda freak!!! I love the smell, the feeling and just the concept behind the brand.

Salon’s that carry specific product brands (i.e. Aveda) usually have to follow certain guidelines for schooling and certification, keeping update on the latest trends and the quality of service they provide.

I always go to Aveda salons because I know usually know what to expect from the salon and the quality of the hair cut I’m going to get. But it does have its drawbacks because they usually cost more to get your hair cut there.

Other good product lines to look for are: Bumble & Bumble, Redken, Matrix, MOP, Nexus

4. Consultation

Ok you have narrowed your search down to a couple of salons, but just can’t pick one yet. This is what you should do. Call them up and ask if you could have a quick sit down consultation with a stylist before you make your official appointment.

Most salons will have no problem doing this and most won’t charge you for the consultation.

If the consultation does cost money, just think of it this way–you may be paying a little more for to find the perfect salon, but your chances are a lot greater that you are going to get the exactly style you are looking for a little extra effort when searching for a salon.

Let me know if this helps you in your salon search or have any other tips!!
