There is nothing I love more than a complete makeover. It is wonderful when a person can venture out of their comfort zone and try something new. Recently, I was fortunate enough to be a part of a fall makeover for a busy, hard-working mom. I also spoke with several style experts on makeup, haircuts, hair colour and the hottest fashion looks for fall.
I love having a new hair colour each season. As the weather heats up, changing the hue of your tresses can really frame your face and provide a new energy to your wardrobe. Recently, I spoke with Jessica Van Kuyk, Artistic Director at Suki's Salons and Academy to find out more about the hottest hair colour trends for summer and also the latest style trends.
To start with, there are four main types of bristles. Each bristle will help you create a different style or can be helpful to nurture specific kinds of hair. Understanding the bristles function will help you find the brush that will work best for your hair. This will also be a great help when you style your hair!
The natural 'wave' for my hair is mushroom style. If I let it dry on its own, with no product to tame it, there will be a full on poof on the top of my head. I was lucky enough recently to speak with Brennen Demelo, L'Oréal Professionnel Ambassador. Brennen shared with me his top tips for choosing the right products for your hair.
A silk pillow case or tied silk scarf will provide the lowest amount of friction possible, which will prevent frizzy bed head. Dry shampoo can be helpful too, to keep the blowout fresh for days to come. If your blowout is a loose wave, at the end of the night do a high twisted top knot on the top of your head and secure with bobby pins rather than an elastic.
I had been wearing my hair in a perpetual pony tail for about 5 years now and thought it was about time for a change. Looking in my bathroom drawer you could find elastics in every shape, texture and colour. My hair was lacking its own style. Having a good 30 years or so of bad haircuts behind me, I have an idea of what I don't like and some elements of what I do like. But how do I put this all together into a modern shape for my lifestyle and age?
