Long Prom Hair Styles
Long Prom Hair Styles . . . Go Casual, But Shine!

“Prom Hairstyles
for Long Hair”

The long prom hair styles of not so long ago was a completely different story than today. Lucky you! I have memories of way too much time spent at the hair salon getting shampooed followed by a roller set that was so tight, it left you with a headache and a face lift at the same time. You then sat under the hair dryer till your ears and face turned red. Next came a violent comb-out, in a sort of a rip and tear kind of way.

After that came the main prom hair styling technique of the day, RATTING! These hairdressers knew how to RAT, that is, backcombing or teasing, taken to a violent extreme which made your hair like a rat’s nest and stay put for months. Some-how after lots of combing over, spraying, twisting and pinning, voila . . . the masterpiece . . . love-locks.

We all had prom hairstyles, we all looked the same and basically we all hated prom hair styles. Tears, were shed by many as they left the salon that hopeful day, feeling older than dirt. And, that’s just what you asked the hairdresser NOT to do! “Please DON”T make me look old.

Good news for you gals, prom hairstyles for long hair have evolved eons since that time. If you’re talented with hair styling techniques you may be able to recreate some of these casual prom hairstyles at home. But, don’t leave it to chance! Practice and if not you’re happy, make that appointment with a professional hairdresser. There are subtleties in making a casual Prom updo look casual and still have it hold all day and through prom night and make you shine.

Eye Brow
Eye Brow Product from Chanel Prefect Brows


Eye Brow Care is Overlooked by Too Many of Us

“Eye Brows are Often Overlooked”I noticed it has been quite a while since we have done our last article on eye brow care. When I saw the good news that Chanel is bringing back it’s great product Chanel Prefect Brows, I jumped at the chance to write about it.

Eye brow color is often overlooked as a beauty routine. Getting just the right color to accent your hair color and skin tone is a trick that can really make your look complete. With this product you can use the brush to shape and contour your eye brows. I often see women using eyshadow will work in a pinch, but the Chanel Prefect Brows product will not rub off quite as easily and gives you a more natural look.

Chanel Perfect Brows comes with a brush, 3 color shades (blonde, brown and black) and a tweezer in a nicely styled square compact with a magnifying mirror. Priced at $69.95 a bit pricey in my opinion, but let’s face good products are usually worth it.

MakeupAlley has 25 reviews of the product if you want to check out what others had to say about Chanel Prefect Brows.

For those of you who are blonde and need to go with something more permanent you might want to consider tinting. Here is a quick video tutorial on how to do that yourself at home.

Rihanna’s Super Short Summer Hair Style

Why not go super-short and sweet this summer?

“Rihanna Short
Hair Style”

Summertime is about here and let’s face it, who wants to spend time puttsing with their hair? I mean really wouldn’t you rather be at the beach, boating, biking, hiking, golfing, anything but having a wrestling match with your hair style? Life is too short, now is the time to be doing . . . and that doesn’t mean your hair.

Ok, I admit we need some doing in styling our hair, but this is a good time for changing your look and easing up on your regular routine. Hair styles this time of year should reflect the mood . . . casual, like the lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.

Rihanna’s is fearless when it comes to changing hair styles. Her hairdresser, Ursula Stephen says, “Rihanna’s addiction is changing her hair style.” And, don’t you love her for it? She’s an example to us all that change can be a good thing, and not as painful as the delusional self might have you believe. Changing your hair style keeps you from falling into the rut of “dating” yourself. Just think how much time Rihanna will save in her morning and evening routine with this short hair style this summer . . . and  she looks like a doll!

The old adage “Life is short,” seems especially true of summertime. Before we know it, its gone! If you’ve been considering a hair style change, now is a good time to think short hair styles . . . get to the beach and kick back!The hair is cut super short at the nape getting fuller above the occipital. The top has full layers that are razored and point cut for a dramatic fringe effect.  For an all-out glam look at the NRJ Music Awards she simply uses a flat-iron creating lift at the crown and accentuates her pointed, side swept, emo hair style bangs. Finish by misting with spray gloss. (Don’t worry that the fringe is always in your eyes, it can be styled to the side and out of the eyes).

How To Get Hair Like Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift Hair

How to do Your Hair like Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift, (with that beautiful head of long curly hair every gal envies) won both video of the year and female video of the year at the CMT Music Awards on Monday night.

Taylor Swift is just 19 years old, looks like a bohemian princess and has a voice to match . . . don’t you just hate her?

I didn’t r e a l l y mean that now, but some girls have all the luck. I mean like that naturally beautiful

Back in the 70’s and 80’s, when spiral perms were the big thing, the long curly Taylor Swift hair is exactly what every long haired women wanted. The problem was that with long, spiral curly perms came frizz and sometimes uncontrollable volume. You’ve seen pictures . . . think Rosanna Rosanna Dana. And since we all want the Taylor Swift hair we haven’t got, salons were full of straight haired women paying their dues and trying to wrestle their hair into submission. If you have naturally straight hair you would be better to stay away from chemical treatments that try to take your hair to the opposite extreme.
If you have hair with some wave and body in it, you can get the Taylor Swift hair look. One easy fix is to invest in hair extensions. Hairuwear by Ken Pave’s and Jessica Simpson are hot right now. They are easy to put in and take out with just three clips, they look real and they are priced right. Price ranges from $45.00 for synthetic to $200.00 plus for real hair. If you want long soft cascading curls or long curly hair see how easy it is to do here.
If you have long wavy hair with body and are willing to do some hair styling, this method works great!
Use a volumizing shampoo and follow with a conditioner you like.

Spray a root lifter on roots and use a volumizing mouse, styling spray or gel if you like.
Blow-dry smoothing the cuticle
Mist with a thermal active spray
Starting at the nape, clip hair up dropping 1″ horizontal sections down at a time. Using a 1″ or 1 1/4″ barrel curling iron, wrap hair around barrel starting close to the scalp in a spiral motion leaving ends out to curl last. This will allow the hair to be curled evenly throughout its entire length.
Gently drop without pulling out the curl.
Mist curls lightly with finishing spray before dropping down next section to be curled.
>Drop down sections repeating above till done.
Your ends shouldn’t be frizzy if you make sure to get them cleanly covered with your curling iron. But a light smoothing serum used by rubbing it into your palms and coaxing the ends down with your fingers will also do the trick.
