One of the most popular Beyonce Knowles hairstyles is the one she had at the New York Cadillac Records premier. This style featured long layers, which were cut in such, a way that the waves were carried through right to the tips. It is perfect for any height and any face shape. If you want to create this style you will need a radial brush, and a curling iron or some hot rollers. Be sure to apply a bit of styling mousse when your hair is damp, to help keep the style in.

Use a larger radial brush to blow-dry your hair. Remember to part your hair into sections and always start at the back. Blow from the top until you reach the ends, where you will blow from the bottom. To get the curls you can use a curling iron or rollers. If you are using hot rollers, remember to arrange the side ones in a vertical pattern. Leave in until the rollers have cooled down. When you are done, apply some smoothing shine and comb through gently to achieve the waves. The key to this Beyonce Knowles hairstyle is to get the waves right. If you follow these steps you can create the style in no time.

Looking Back, Hairstyles Fall 2009, Natural Hair Colors Ruled

Looking Back, Hairstyles Fall 2009. Natural Hair Colors Ruled!

What was glamorous in Fall 2009? Lots of styles fit that bill! This was a year of hair experimentation that has yielded so many new styles and variations.
Short hair styles dominated the magazines and red carpets this Fall. Rihanna and Katie Holmes, while at different spectrums of the entertainment charts, displayed forward looking fashion sense in their short hair styles! Rihanna has dominated the short hair style for a while, but she took her look to a new level with some sharp angled, side-swept bangs that have become a new standard in the industry. And Katie just shocked everyone with her black-dyed, short style that took her from her living room to the red carpet with ease!

It was a wonderful explosion of color that mimicked the change in seasons this Fall as well! While natural hair colors dominated the scene, there were bold variations of platinum blondes to fiery reds and rich auburns along with highlight and lowlight accents! The word for it all was glamorous! Even Emo styles set forth by the Twilight movie series and the punk styles set forth by the likes of Avril Lavigne, were able to give all personalities a way to glam up their styles!

Even the teens got on the glam train when Miley Cyrus was seen with a long hair style that showed off her youthful, but sophisticated side on the red carpet this fall. We can expect to see the healthy, bouncy, and cutting edge styles that made their way into our magazines this Fall carry us boldly into 2010 in style!

Asian Hairstyles in 2010

Asian Hairstyles in 2010

Looking across the many styles that are available today, we have to give credit to the stylists and fashion industry in Japan who have repeatedly given the rest of the world innovative ideas. The Asian styles that are working the best right now have to do with using different length bangs with short hair to offer a wide range of options for different face shapes.

We can see the influences in style in all Asian-made cartoons, video games and movies. Many of the toughest shapes to flatter are round and diamond face shapes which we find many of in the Asian population. This of course is speaking in very broad generalities.

General or not, this year especially we have seen Asian influence on hairstyles in the Emo style. If we look at the wild hairstyles that are being sported by artists like Adam Lambert, you will have a good idea about what the Emo style looks like. His style is all about expressing his emotion and personality. And his stylist does that very well by keeping much of his hair short and keeping his top layers longer. Then it is possible to style his bangs and parts differently for a wide variation of looks without much effort!

More mainstream looks have caught on to this trend as well. Take a look at Mandy Moore or Katie Holmes and you will find the same type of short styles and use of bangs for so many of their new looks!

Long Hairdos, Winter, Summer 2010



Long Hairdos Winter, Summer 2010


When looking for long hairstyles that work for your hair, there isn’t much searching that needs to be done! Online pictures and information has made the search relatively easy!
Look up Jessica Lowndes at the Grammy awards this year for a formal look that creates elegance and grace. With her healthy, brown hair pushed up and back she elongated her oval shaped face. Jessica is lucky because her face has small features that love to be accentuated. She also wore the rest of her hair down her back. This gave her a very flowing, elongated, graceful look that the cameras loved!
Beyonce is no stranger to long hair; and she is versatile in her styles also. She has gone from straightened hair with bangs to wild curly hair on stage! She makes both look extremely sexy. Her secret is that her hair is naturally wavy so the wild, vertical curls she wears on stage are relatively easy for her stylist to create. But the straightened hair takes a lot of heat and relaxer, so she doesn’t do that very often. This is smart because she can keep her hair healthier without the use of many chemicals and heat treatments.
But if you are looking for real versatility, Mandy Moore is the woman to research! Mandy has gone from blonde to brown and from short to long styles with ease. And her square face shape is not an easy one to fit, so there is great hope for all women who are struggling with difficult face shapes of our own!

Wedding Party Hairstyles Tips 2010



Wedding Party Hairstyles Tips 2010


When choosing your wedding party hairstyles take into consideration four things: the style of the dress, the weather, the overall style of the wedding, and your personal preference.

When first thinking about a hairstyle, you should think about the wedding dress or bridesmaid dresses that you have chosen. If it has a halter neckline or plunging backs, you would want to accentuate this feature with an up-style haircut. And, for instance, if there are pearls in the dress, you may want to accessorize your hair with some small pearl adornment.

Next, think practically! You might want to think about what hairstyle just might make it through the day best for your pictures. If there is any humidity or rain possible like in summer months, you may want to rethink a straight haircut if your hair is naturally wavy. Winter can bring dryness and March is known for wind! You must think about what is going to look best all day. Ask your stylist for suggestions; she has probably done a few weddings in her career.

One of the most important things is what kind of mood you are trying to create for your wedding as well. If you are looking for high-fashion and red carpet glamour, that will affect your choices for hairstyle one way. However, if you are trying for a fun, laid-back atmosphere, you will want to go a completely different way with your hairstyles. Do some research on you favorite wedding sites and look at photos at that location. This may just speak to you.

Finally, wear what feels most natural and comfortable for you and your bridesmaids. Maybe it isn’t that important to you that all of you look the same. Ultimately you just have to think about it and then go with what feels right to you!

Best Hairstyles for Heart Faces



Best Hairstyles for Heart Faces


There are so many great hairstyles out there for heart shaped faces! This winter’s styles are leaning towards shorter hair styles, and that is a perfect way to go for your face.

Shorter hairstyles like the chin-length bob will work very well for your heart-shaped face because it adds volume where you need it the most! It accents your high cheekbones and gives your face balance. The short hairstyles that are in style for 2010 are your chance to shine!

Fringe hairstyles that play with the angles and layers of your bangs will also be great for your face. It is easy to use haircuts that are side-parted or bangs that are side swept to give you a sexier look that will still frame your face in flattering ways. Avoid the short cuts that put too much volume at the top of your head or are too slicked back. You don’t want to ruin the visual balance by making your chin look longer and pointier. You will really like the way you look in these shorter styles and heads will turn more when you walk in the room!

The long hair option can also work out for you, but you have to be sure that your stylist cuts it in a way that accents your cheekbones. Those are the highlight of your facial features and you should emphasize them! Cutting some layers into your bangs can draw out your cheekbones and allow you to enjoy a longer cut.

Trying to look a little spunkier these days? Looking to show off your fun side? Here is a great way to be really fashionable going into 2010 – get a shorter hair style! Longer hair tends to be classified as elegant, but it takes so much work to maintain. And a shorter look always makes you look a little bit younger and more fun!

Asian Pixie Cut - Winter, Summer 2010



Asian Pixie Cut - Winter, Summer 2010 Edition

This style was popularized in Asian fashion because it fits many Asian features. Feminine jaw lines, small features, and straight hair are typically needed to pull off this fashion forward look!
However, we have seen many celebrities without any Asian descent pull it off with flair as well! Hale Berry had this cut for a while and she looked ravishing. Alyssa Milano wore a Pixie cut very well as a good witch on Charmed. And Natalie Portman was strikingly beautiful with a Pixie cut of her own shortly after shaving her head in the movie “V for Vendetta.”
Halle Berry Pixie Cut

This style can be cute to wear on a daily basis, and it can also be a glamorous look when worn to formal events. It is something that will express your confidence in that you don’t need to have long hair to appear feminine. And it is easy to wash and wear daily, but you will have to spend some extra time and use some gel or mousse getting it to look right for more formal occasions.
And it appears that some of the celebrities who have made this look popular are now growing their hair out a little more. So if you don’t like to visit the stylist too often, you may not need to go for a few months while you let your style grow out a bit.
That is the real beauty of this cut! It will look good short, and it will look good in the dreaded in-between stages as it grows out as well. Then you can always make the decision to re-trim the look, or grow it out. Either way you go, you can modify your look throughout the year while experimenting with different lengths!

Jennifer Aniston Hair Color Tips For 2010



Jennifer Aniston Hair Color Formula For 2010


Style conscious women all have the same question: How do you achieve the lively long locks Jennifer Aniston look? Here are some of the hair salon secrets that will make you the envy of all your friends. Women with medium-soft brunette hair color are the luckiest, because this is the same base color as Jennifer Aniston. Now all you need to do is add the highlights. Start with a high-lift golden blonde hair color and 40-volume developer, and then alternate with a high-lift natural blonde. It’s most important for your hair stylist to use crème developer so the hair color will be thick to keep the foil in place. For best results the stylist should use half-inch-wide streaks and allow 20 minutes under a hot dryer to process.
Here's an insider secret on Jennifer Aniston's hair color from some of the other clients of her experienced stylist: use the old-fashioned Clairol and Wella in a bottle that you can purchase yourself. The fantastic result is due to technique and timing not in using luxury hair colors.
To accent the hair color with lowlights, use approximately three foils on both sides of the head. One of the best colors is the medium golden brown shade like Wella Color Charm #435 with 20-volume crème developer. This time your stylist should do 3/4-inch streaks, with only one lowlight foil for the fringe bangs. All you need is ten minutes to process the color then shampoo and condition. The finishing touches include glossing and styling to your preference.

2010 Hairstyles For Wavy Hair



2010 Hairstyles For Wavy Hair

Obviously wavy hairstyles tend to look good on everyone, but what if you don’t like your current style? I think you should definitely be open to changing your style, but don’t run away screaming from your natural wavy hair! Straightening has become a very common fashion, but aside from using damaging hair products and extremely hot straightening irons, there is no really permanent way to straighten. The best way to keep your wavy or straight hair looking good is to keep it strong and healthy looking.
2010 Wavy Hair Idea

Since wavy hair very often gets dehydrated more quickly than straighter hair, it is most important that you use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Repairing any damage that styling chemicals or heat do to your hair is the only way to keep it frizz free. It doesn’t matter how you prefer your hair cut without being sure to moisturize and repair your hair.
For short waves, put in some defining product in your damp hair and work it in with your fingers. There are some curling mousse products that work well also without much effort. For long waves, you may need a little more time and you will want to use a curling iron. Use some styling gel in your damp hair and allow for drying before adding any hair spray to hold in place. A good technique is also to use the gel with your head forward and your hair over your head for volume. Whether you are looking for the Jennette McCudy or the Catherine Zeta Jones look, I am sure that if you do some research and bring in some celebrity pictures for your stylist, you can get some great advice. Good luck and take some time to experiment before you do away with your voluptuous curls!
