Female celebrities tend to set the styles that the rest of North America tries to emulate. Actually, we should give credit where it’s due, to their hairstylists. The styles that female celebrities wear often become the most popular of any year, and 2010 is no exception. They’ll be seen in magazines, on the TV and on the heads of young and old women who aren’t stars, as well.
Women around North America, and indeed around the world, gaze at the First Lady of the United States. Michelle Obama shows off classic and understated beauty. She began this year with a more traditional hairstyle, which was classy and straight. This hairstyle is actually a bit of a throwback to the 1960′s, and because of the First Lady’s grace, many other women wear their hair the same way.
Nowadays, the First Lady is wearing a straighter, short bob, which is a cute spin on her previous style. It’s still a classy look, but adds a bit of youth to the equation. Michelle Obama encourages women with her style to go short with their hairstyles for the summer.
The singer Pink has experimented with many different celebrity hairstyles. She had her hair long for awhile, and she often wore it swept up. She used curls with this styleto make it more of a “girly” look. More recently, she has gone back to short hair, which looks more youthful. She seems to look good with a choppy and smart style. She also looks particularly nice with blonde colour in her hair.
Miley Cyrus has grown up a lot since we first met her. The styles she wears are often adopted by young teens her age. She takes advantage of her natural brown colour, and often shows off a carefree and youthful style. Her long hair is sometimes worn in a natural wavy look or she wears it up and lets it flow naturally. Teenagers and younger girls everywhere in the world strive for the same wavy appearance. You can sometimes achieve this look by braiding your hair and leaving it that way overnight. In the morning, you can undo the braids and the waves will look like those that Miley Cyrus wears. A crimping iron can give you a similar look as well, if you don’t have time before bed to do the braiding. It’s nice when women can look like the stars they wish to emulate, without a lot of extra work.
Versatility is the name of the game for women’s hairstyles in 2010. Haircuts that will allow you to easily maintain the style and still allow a good deal of flexibility will continue to be popular in 2010.
Classic looks in hairstyles this year may have a bit of a twist – a fanciful little touch that can be added to make the style seem bold at times and understated at others. Hairstyles, whether long, medium or short, will be better thought-out and purposeful. 2010 is not the time to appear at an event with the bedhead look.
The word to remember in the summer of 2010 is versatility, giving women more options on what to do with their haircuts. Fringes will still be popular, whether they are sweeping, rounded or short. They are beautiful, soft and give your hair an extra healthy shine.
Using versatile women’s hairstyles tends to suggest that there may be a shift to long hairstyles, since the more hair you have, the more you can do with it. Some women will be allowing their short styles to grow out, and letting their bob styles lengthen.
The trend in 2010 has been longer hair, although as summer approaches, some women will still opt for shorter styles. Longer styles do help to accommodate various facial shapes and body types, and natural hairstyles are coming more into style as well.
Diversity is also important for hairstyles of 2010. People who really like long or short hair will probably not change, but other women who change to adhere to trends will be able to adapt their styles to their own look.
Highlights will probably be more in style as summer 2010 approaches. The contrast is often only moderate, but the placement of the colouring makes it a modern, attractive choice for darker hair. It’s not too flashy and or too subtle.
If you are often frustrated by your thick, unmanageable hair, keep your chin up – there are some hairstyles that will look wonderful on thick hair. Thickness merely refers to the volume of your hair. Of course, women who have thin hair always envy those with thick hair, so it’s a matter of working with what you have.
Thick hair can often mean that tangles are easily formed, so it can be hard to comb your hair. In addition, if you let thick hair grow out, it may become frizzy. If you want styles that really work for thick hair, get an appropriate cut, first. A layered cut works well for thick hair, since it gives your hair different levels of depth and helps to make it more manageable. Be sure that your hairstylist doesn’t cut your hair too short though, or it may stick up.
Thick hair of varying lengths needs various styles to make it work. You may wish to avoid short hairstyles for thicker hair, since it may cause the hair to flare up. If your style is medium or long, the weight will help to hold it down, and it will look less curly or wiry. If you leave some length, it gives you the option of pulling your hair into a bun or a ponytail when you’re having a bad hair day.
Bangs do not work well with thick hair, since they may become curly and will need to be straightened frequently. Wavy hair works well for medium hairstyles with thick hair. This style will help add bounce to your hair, and you can curl the ends up for a different look.
A perm may help your thick hair look better when it is styled. You can get a soft or heavy perm, depending on how long and thick your hair is.
Each year between February and April, the luckiest of young girls prepare for their school’s prom night. Seniors in high school are especially affected by the lure since it may quite literally be their “last dance” in high school. It’s the time of year to select a look that’s all your own. This look will be mirrored in your prom gown and hairstyle choice.
There are many places to look when trying to find the right style for your prom dress and hairstyle. Most importantly, you’ll want a formal hairstyle that is appropriate for the prom. If you haven’t selected the perfect hairstyle for the prom yet, look to celebrities and their ever changing hairstyles. The red carpet will always give you some excellent looks to emulate as well. This is a speedy and easy way to find new hairstyles for your prom.
You can also check out all the prom issues of magazines that come out in January or February. These issues are specially designed for women lucky enough to be going to their proms. You can find many different styles of dresses and prom hairstyles in these magazines. Check out Seventeen, Teen and YM. These magazines are full of prom hairstyles and other helpful prom tips.
If you’d rather check out new hairstyles and dresses online, there are many resources you can use, from online guides to simple websites that devote themselves to prom hairstyles. You can use a search engine to find literally hundreds of sites that are dedicated to prom style as well. They pull their images from all over the world, so you’ll see an array of different formal hairstyles online from many countries. If you use any of these outlets you’ll be sure to find so many styles that it may be hard to choose one just one!
The style of your prom dress reveals your attitude and mood, so, your formal hairstyle should also do the same.
If you like a flirty, cute look, you might opt for a short dress with an empire waist, or a strapless bubble dress. Match your dress with a cute formal hairstyle that has been styled into loose, natural waves. Look at celebrity hairstyles to get ideas for yourself for prom.
If the dress you choose for your prom is a bit daring, like a strapless or off-the-shoulder dress, you’ll want a sexy hairstyle to go along with the dress. Perhaps you can try a hairstyle with part of your hair up and part of it down, with waves at the shoulder.
If you want to show off a hippie, casual look, you might choose a flowing, long dress with an embroidered bodice. A prom hairstyle like this will look great if you want to take a step back from the formal look.
You can even wear an emo prom hairstyle, which is a real show-stopper. Not everyone can pull this off. Wear a black dress with a layered skirt and a lovely bodice, as well as an emo hairstyle like Twilight’s Kristen Stewart wears.
For the best in glamorous prom hairstyles, you’ll want your hair to look classic, sophisticated and uncluttered. You don’t need to be extravagant or daring, just graceful and subtle. Think Angelina Jolie at the 2009 Oscars. Wear a strapless, form-fitting gown, with your hair pulled elegantly back to show off your face and neck.
Above all else, choose a prom hairstyle that fits the mood of your dress. A lot of different dresses may look great, but you’ll want to be sure that you are comfortable when wearing one. The colour of your dress should complement the look of your formal hairstyle as well.
There are many long hairstyles you can wear to show off your longer hair. Braids are especially a nice style to wear if you have long hair. You can practice braiding on a string mop, or purchase hair pieces to practice on. In addition, your family members may allow you to braid their hair for the practice. You’ll want to concentrate on the basic braiding patterns for long hair styles, including French, English and Dutch braids.
You can use professional hairstyling products to help enhance your natural curls and waves. Apply mousse and wrap your hair into a hair twist or a knot when you go to bed. Allow your hair to air dry overnight, then undo the twist when you get up the next morning and you’ll have lush curls and waves.
Don’t use hair care products that have high alcohol content, since they may dry your hair out. In addition, a balanced diet using each of the food groups will actually help balance the moisture in your hair.
High winds can whip your long hair into tangles and even split ends. If you are in an open car or standing in an open, windy area, pull your long hair up and secure it. The sun also is damaging to hair because it can dry it out and burn your scalp. Protect your long hairstyle with a mild sunscreen applied to the scalp if you’re outside all day. Better yet, wear a hat to block out the damaging rays of the sun.
If you’re still looking for a good hairdresser you can trim the ends of your own hair to avoid split ends. Frequent trims are better for your hair than infrequent trims. If you can’t trim your hair well, ask a friend or family member to help. Only trim the ends of your hair when you have plenty of time, not when you are in a hurry. In addition, you may opt to only trim the split ends, although they may be hard to sort out.
The best way to keep your long hair healthy and easy to style is to treat it well. Long hairstyles will look best if you tailor your maintenance to the type of hair you have. Your hairstylist will be able to point you to products to keep your hair healthy.
If you have had long hair for years, you already know how important it is to keep your hair properly shampooed and conditioned. There are popular tips that you may only discover after years of talking to hairdressers who work a great deal with long hairstyles.
One of the main problems with long hairstyles is breakage, and shorter hairs that may be fly-away, frizzy or have split ends. It is important to have your long hair trimmed on a regular basis, to keep from showing split ends.
You’ll need to be seriously committed to promoting healthy long hair. Long hairstyles require you to concentrate on the health of your hair, and your ability to nurture it. Keep any damaged ends trimmed because you can’t grow healthy hair if a lot of your hair has damaged, ripped or split ends.
Select the hair care products that work the best for your long hair. Some of the more specialized products may be beyond your means, but get the best you can. Learn to use the products and the tools of healthy hair, and adopt correct ways to detangle, brush and comb your long hair. Don’t use cheaper combs and brushes that can tear strands of hair. Wide tooth combs and brushes without knobs on the bottom of the brush are the best type to use on long hair.
If you decide to trim off your split ends between hair salon visits, use professional hair cutting scissors to keep from ripping the ends of your hair. Also, make sure your fingernails are trimmed if you use your fingers to finger rake your hair. These tips will help you care for your long hairstyle and keep your hair healthy at the same time.
You can achieve a more sleek and modern look with trendy medium hairstyle. If you have hair that is full of body, your hairdresser can create sleek softness and wonderful volume with this type of haircut. The proper hair care products can help to bring healthy sophistication to your modern medium hairstyle.
After you shampoo and condition your hair, use a mousse product to dampen the hair, with special focus on the crown, to provide lift and volume. Then apply a spray memory product evenly through all your hair, including the ends.
Next, start drying your hair with a blow dryer and a medium brush. Create volume by carefully lifting up sections of hair with your brush as you dry your hair. Dry the rest of your hair straight down while you smooth it from underneath.
When your medium hair is fully dry, pull back some sections from the sides and crown and pin them near the back of your head. Keep some pieces loose, to show off softness and volume. Then mist your hair with a finishing product, for a hold that it touchable yet strong.
When you work with your hair to maintain a contemporary medium hair style, you’ll want to apply a volumnizing product to your hair while it is still damp, and work it all the way through to the ends. If you blow-dry your hair while keeping your head upside down, you can add extra volume. Dry it that way until it’s nearly dry because it helps your hair stand away from your head.
Another way to add movement and body is to use hot or self-grip rollers. You can also help your hair retain its volume and shape by blow drying it with a lower heat setting. Leave the rollers in until your hair is dry, and cool to the touch. Flat roots can also be given a boost by lifting the roots and holding them up with clips, while you blow them dry on a low heat setting. By using these helpful tips, your medium hairstyle will be sleek and smooth, for wherever you happen to be headed.
A medium hairstyle is quite handy for women who are busy but still want to look stylish. It’s not as easily manageable as a short hairstyle, of course, but it usually doesn’t require much more than using a quality shampoo and a good conditioner, to maintain the health of your hair. If you want a sportier hair style, medium hairstyles may be a bit of a hassle. If your hair is too short, it can’t be tied back.
If your hair is in a medium haircut style, be sure to have your ends trimmed regularly because you don’t want split ends to ruin a good hairstyle. It would be handy to have a product that could repair split ends, but so far, no product does this effectively.
There are various names used for the medium hairstyles that women like to wear. They include mid-length, in-between length and shoulder length hair styles. One stylist may use one term and another might use a different term. So be sure your stylist knows what you really want.
Medium hairstyles allow you to be versatile since they are easy to manage and generally look good for people with various facial shapes and hair textures. These haircuts will also allow you to emphasize your features. When you use a layered cut on your medium length hair, it can help emphasize your features that you’d like to highlight.
Medium haircuts also offer you a selection of different hairstyles, so, you can try out various styles until you find one that you like. If you have a formal event coming up, you might want an elegant updo, but if you need something that’s casual or edgy, all you have to do is have your hairdresser change a few areas and you’re good to go.
Medium hairstyles also give you a sense of security as well. If you don’t like a cut you end up with, you can simply have your hairdresser change it to a look more to your liking. In this way, you’re not stuck with a bad haircut, which is what sometimes happens with short hairstyles.
When the holidays roll around you’ll want to wear special short or medium hairstyle to your festive holiday parties. You might decide to wear an updo formal hairstyle like a French twist, braided coil or wavy chignon. Any of these hairstyles will show off an elegant look at parties.
You may have seen the French twist updo before worn by some celebrities. It looks especially good with hair accessories, and is sure to provide you with a flirty and soft look. The traditional French twist updo medium hairstyle is one that is used very frequently. You probably would not be able to do a French twist on your own hair, so make an appointment with a hairstylist for the best look.
A braided coil updo hairstyle is a very elegant style, especially for those with naturally long hair. Your hair will be braided into a single longer braid in back first, and then it will be pinned on top of your head in a circle. This look was once retro but has become popular once again, so you will truly stand out if you have long enough hair to wear this style. If your hair isn’t long enough to do this, you can buy braided coil pieces and add them to your natural hair.
The wavy chignon formal hairstyle works best if you have naturally curly hair. You will curl – unless your hair is already curly – first, and create loose, long waves with a hot iron. Gather your hair into one high, loose ponytail and wind that into the shape of a bun. Then place curls near the outside where you can see them.
Messy buns are another hairstyle that looks great for the holidays. It’s similar in style to a wavy chignon, although it works on wavy or straight hair as well. Your hairstylist can leave out wisps of hair purposefully, so that they hang daintily around your face.
