If you have longer hair you may consider getting a haircut to a more moderate medium length. This would be at the shoulders or slightly shorter. Medium length hair gives you many choices of hair styles that will certainly change your appearance with each style change.
Medium length hair can have a dramatic look. Part the hair on one side and sweep it back at the other side into a roll of luscious curls. Or part it down the middle and then curl the ends so they flit up flirtingly. Medium length hair can be curled under at the ends so you have a sleek bob look. Short hair can be layered so it has a shingled look. Some of the layers could be colored so when it moves it shimmers with all different layers of light.
Lovely Medium Hairdo
With medium length hair you can also have bangs. You can roll the bangs under at the forehead for a retro hair style look. Letting them fall to one side then using a lovely small jeweled hair clip will make your hair style look alive as the rhinestones catch the light. You can use an Alice band at the forehead and have a much more severe look. You can use a styling gel and get a lot of lift at the top for interest. Since a medium length hair cut is not too drastic, it is easier to accept the change. Once you make this change, you will enjoy having shorter hair.
It will soon be your wedding day and you have decided on your bridesmaids, their dresses and their shoes, but what about their hair style? You probably have thought a lot about your hair style but perhaps not your bridesmaids’ hair style.
You certainly don’t want to dictate a hairstyle to your bridesmaids. That is not a good idea. However you could make some suggestions that they certainly will give some thought to. If all of your bridesmaids have about the same length hair, and this is a possibility, then you could suggest they all wear an up do or a down do. Or even a combination of both.
But it is more likely that your bridesmaids will all have different hair lengths. If that is the case, then you really can’t have them all wear a similar hair style. But you do want them to all have a similar appearance so you could have them wear matching sparkly hair clips or flowers caught up in their hair. You don’t want them to have to be worrying whether their hair is going to fall down or that pins will come flying out of it. So try to keep their hair style simple. If they are wearing it up, make sure they have used lots of hair spray so it is a controlled hair style.
Ideally you want them to look pretty and not clash with you. It is your special wedding day and they are all happy for you.
You’ve seen those women. The kind that have so many barrettes, pony tail holders, clips and bows in their hair that you can’t see the actual hair. Unfortunately, sometimes women feel as if their hair just isn’t pretty unless it is decorated as much as possible. When accessorizing your hair, there are a few rules that are important to remember so that you look elegant and classy rather than gaudy and child-like. Think about it – children love to over-decorate their hair, right? It’s just not pretty on adults.
DON’T overdo it on the hair accessories. Whether you are using glue-in sparkles and glitter or just small hair holding clips, it is important to find out what is tasteful and what is too much. A few colorful clips for a fun occasion, or a few glue-in sparkles for a night on the town may be elegant and tasteful, but anything more than that and it’s important to consider how much is too much. DO find other ways to hold your hair into place. One of the biggest reasons women overdo it on hair clips is that they have small wisps of hair that need to be held into place, and think this is a colorful and fun way to do it. Unless you have fewer than a few wisps, however, try using bobby pins that match the color of your hair to hold it in place without being conspicuously bright and gaudy. Following these few tips can help you greatly in accessorizing your hair with class and elegance.

How To Get Hair Like Jordana Brewster
If you have seen Jordana Brewster on television or in any of her feature films, you will probably remember her lusciously styled hair. Jordana’s gorgeous, dark locks fall just below her shoulders. Her bangs are cut across her forehead, and her hair is slightly textured to fit the shape of her face. If you like the look of one-toned, straight, simple hair, than Jordana’s look is exactly what you need- and here is how you get it:
1. Detangle and smoothen hair before you get into the shower, then apply a moisturizing shampoo which will maximize the likelihood that your hair will turn out looking pin-straight. There are many “straightening” shampoos available for this purpose.
2. Do not shower in hot water, this can dry your hair out and make it less silky. Additionally, hot water will prevent the moisturizing shampoo from doing its job.
3. Finish your shower off with a cold splash of water into your hair. This will increase the overall shine of your hair.
4. Scrunch hair dry to avoid hair breakage. Never rub your hair with a towel!
5. Apply a shining serum, and use a flat brush while blow drying your hair in different sections. This will prevent you from missing any kinks in your hair, which can ruin your look completely.
6. After you are satisfied with the look of your hair, apply some anti-frizz serum. This will keep your hair looking light, silky, and smooth throughout the day. Additionally, anti-frizz serum is extremely important in hot weather because heat tends to make hair dry out and frizz up. So don’t forget your anti-frizz during those summer months!
There are both pros and cons which come along with choosing to blow dry your hair rather than letting it air dry. Many people choose to blow dry their hair in moderation and letting it air-dry a few days out of the week. This is a great option as you can allow your hair time to recuperate from using a blow dryer.
It is no secret that using a blow dryer is by far the most convenient way of styling your hair. However, if you use a blow dryer too often, it can become very dangerous for your hair. You may have noticed on weeks where you have had to use a blow dryer more than usual that your hair begins to dry out. This is because excessive use of hair dryers causes damage and breakage which can become very difficult to repair.
If you decide to blow your hair dry on a daily basis, you must be sure to avoid blowing the hair dry when it is soaking wet. Not only will this take a very long time to dry, but you are unnecessarily prolonging the amount of time which you are applying damaging heat to your hair. Also, be sure to keep the hairdryer 6-8 feet away from your head at all times. Holding the dryer close to your head can severely dries out your hair, and you may even burn your scalp! Lastly, do not dry your hair all the way through. The best option is to stop using the blow dryer while your hair is still damp.
If you use a blow dryer on your hair every day, then you will want to take special measures to keep your hair from drying out. Excessive heat from the blow dryer can be very damaging for your hair. Luckily, steps can be taken to prevent hair damage from occurring.
1. Be sure to use conditioner. This will keep your hair feeling and looking hydrated, even after you have used a blow dryer.
2. Upon exiting the shower, get as much moisture out of your hair as possible. You will want to scrunch the wetness out with a towel, but be sure not to rub!
3. Apply a protective hair product or mousse which is designed to make your hair damage resistant to heat. Many of these products will steam once heat hits them, so don’t be alarmed- you aren’t on fire!
4. Never put the blow dryer directly against your hair. It is important to keep it 4-6 inches away from your hair at all times.
5. After your hair is mostly dry, you can begin to style each individual section. This may require clipping and separating different sections of your hair. If you have shorter hair, you may only need to run the dryer through it once before straightening or applying product.
A woman's wedding day is a source of great joy for her. But it is also a source of great stress. It is hard to find the perfect dress, shoes, hairstyle, and then on top of that you must plan the reception and wedding itself. When it comes to hairstyles, once you have chosen the one that you want the most, you then have to decide whether or not you want to wear any accessories. Accessories will give your wedding hairstyle a modern, updated twist and will make you look very elegant and sophisticated.
There is a wide variety of accessories that you can choose from. There are tiaras, headbands, clips, hairpins, feathers, and much more that you can choose from. You need to make sure that you choose the right accessories. You want to have a balanced and stylish look, not one that leaves you looking like you are either trying too hard or even worse, not hard enough. If you are having an outdoor wedding for example, then you may not want to go with fake flowers, but you may want to go with real flowers. These will look better than artificial flowers if you are having a wedding in the park or on a beach.
Another thing that you need to remember is to accessorize based on your face shape. Round faces will look the very best with a tiara that is V angled while bands look best with long faces. Oval faces should avoid angled accessories but look great with a tiara, hairband, or something that huddles up to the back of the hair.
The most typical hairstyle associated with short hair is the well known bob. This one is really a style that is well suited for any woman, no matter the age or face traits. With a longer face, go for a longer bob. And if you have straight mane, the bob is definitely for you. You don't even have to style it, as it sits just the way it should. If you're 'unlucky' to have curly locks, there is no need to worry either. With the many hair-straightening products available today, there is no reason not to go for bob, none at all. Nicole Richie is a prime example of wearing this style just now. A particular variant of it is the inverted bob. Check out photos of Audrey Tautou to see what I mean.
The pixie cut is a hairstyle that can be recreated by cutting the hair really thin alongside the ears. This is made to have the short mane very close to the head. You might want to have longer locks in the back or at the sides, but avoid having them longer in the front. Just check some of Katie Holmes recent photos at Google images and you'll see my point. Really cute this one!
The edgy short hairstyle is a technique that again Victoria Beckham has brought into spotlight. While some people shy away from this as they feel their face becomes sharper and less feminine, this is in fact not true. You can have a softer cut or a highly strung hairstyle, all depending on what will match best your personality and the shape of your face. Don't be afraid to experiment and discuss with your hairstylist the options available to you to get the maximum of this new gorgeous look.
What better than a new short hairstyles to go with those shorts and skirts. Maybe you have never imagined a different look to go along with your wardrobe, but if you did it would greatly surprise you how some clothing just combines so well with a different hairstyles and creates a totally unique look. From swim suits to evening wear, there are short hairstyle variations that fit well in all these situations.
