    Layered Hairstyles Give Body and Movement

    “Layered Hairstyles
    for a Change Up”

    For all of you who find yourself stuck in a hair rut, my suggestion is to change it up with a layered hairstyle . . . layers add oomph to hair by giving movement, body and texture to an otherwise, one length hairstyle. Whether you have super short strands or ultra long hair, layered hairstyles add lots of interest . . . that something extra to your style.

    If you want to add volume and body to your long hair, a long layered hairstyle is the way to go. To get this look, ask your hairdresser for long, subtle layers toward the bottom, as well as face framing layers for a subtle but sexy update to your current hairstyle.

    Long Layered Hairstyles are Versatile

    Short strands can end up looking soccer mom-ish sometimes, but, short layered hairstyles, done just right, can perk up any unexciting haircut. I add choppy texture into my clients’ short hair, so that they can add a bit of product for a bed head effect and get out the door quickly.

    Lisa Rinna shows that short layered hairstyles, can be adorable at any age!  Love the texture in this cut as well as the high lights that show off her layers.

    Lisa Rinna Gives Short Layered Hairstyles a Chic Edge!

    Can’t decide between a short or long layered hairstyle? I’d suggest compromising by meeting in the middle and having a medium length haircut with light layering. You can ask your hairdresser for a shoulder length haircut, which would give you the versatility of wearing it down or into an up-do and then have her cut lightweight layers throughout giving you lots of volume and fullness. Consider adding bangs for an even  edgier style change. Medium length layered hairstyles work great for those of you wanting something in-between!

    What’s up in hair news

    TIGI Co-founder Guy Mascolo Passes

    TIGI brand hair care products co-founder, Guy Mascolo, passed away May 6, 2009 at home after suffering a major heart-attack. With a natural talent and love of the hair industry, Mascolo and his brother launched TIGI brand in the 1980’s and watched it gain popularity since. You might know Mascolo’s products from TIGI’s, “Bed Head” line. These are some of my favorite products and I was lucky enough to attend a TIGI Fashion/Hair Show in Las Vegas in the past few years and rub elbows with the Mascolo family. Their products are fabulous and the family is a hard-working one. Guy Mascolo will be very missed by the beauty industry.Hair News Article

    As See On TV Hair Tools

    Are you addicted to home shopping networks and infomercials? If so, then you may have spotted the Split Ender on one of these channels recently. I know how you feel, infomercials suck me in and make me want to buy it and buy it now! The Split Ender promises to end split ends and dry brittle hair with their ‘amazing’ product that snips ‘just the ends’ of layers and more. I’m telling you, as a professional hairdresser, that nothing will magically fix split ends. I’d save your sixty bucks and head to your hairdresser to get regular trims and conditioning treatments instead.

    Who Gains Title to American Idols Best Hairstyles?

    “American Idols Best Hairstyles Awards”Wow, I sure hope you watched the American Idol finale Wednesday night. Idol underdog, Kris Allen came in with a new record in votes, beating out competitor, Adam Lambert. I think Kris was in total shock, what about you?

    Chris’s win put aside, I’d like to weigh in on his and Adam’s ‘rockstar’ hairstyles. They had some of American Idols best hairstyles for guys. Kris, going with an all-American short crop and Adam, going with more of a rocker/emo edge, both wore perfect hair for their individual styles. The makeovers many of these contestants get when they are going through the American Idols process, are astounding to me, especially their hair. Here, in my opinion, are the American Idols Best Hairstyles over the seasons:

    .Season 8 American Idols Best Hairstyles – Adam Lambert

    Although he was second choice to win, Adam Lambert won my vote for American Idols best hairstyles season 8. I loved his unique hairstyle that was a shiny blue-black with subtle blue high lighting. It complemented his whole look and of course, his rocker edge. He changed it up a bit too, like the above picture, to give the ‘Elvis’ vibe.

    Season 7 American Idols Best Hairstyles-Syesha Mercado

    In my mind, Syesha Mercado had Season 7’s American Idols best hairstyle because she embraced her natural texture. And what a beautiful texture it was! I love when clients decide to work with their natural hair texture versus fighting it. All those gorgeous ringlets gave her a style all her own.

    American Idols Best Hairstyles-Season 6

    Season 6 American Idols Best Hairstyles-Blake Lewis

    A little bit country, a little bit rock and roll, Blake Lewis’ short haircut was a tad bit all-American with a pinch of rock and roll, making it the perfect hairstyle for an American Idol contestant. I loved his hairstyle because it was right on par with the trend of a short men’s style with tons of texture. It’s got that lovely messy look that you can find here: It’s not too little or too much, just right.

    American Idols Best Hairstyles-Season 5

    Season 5 American Idols Best Hairstyles – Katherine McPhee

    Style star Katherine McPhee, was my choice for season 5’s best hairstyle. Her hair was always styled so glamorously and she keeps up with that same look today. Her long, luscious locks are shiny and healthy looking, which makes me (and every other woman of the world) envious of her hair.

    Season 4 American Idols Best Hairstyles – Carrie Underwood

    Carrie Underwood, won season 4 of American Idol and she won my vote for that season best hairstyles too. She was totally made over for the show and I loved her makeover because her hair went from country bumpkin to glamour girl. She continues to be a glamour girl and I love her music too!

    American Idols Best Hairstyles-Season 3

    Season 3 American Idols Best Hairstyles – Jon Peter Lewis

    Do you remember Jon Peter Lewis, from season 3? Well almost by default, he wins this season’s American Idols Best Hairstyles. I thought the hair from this season was horrendous, but his stood out because it reminded me of what I call ‘heartthrob hair’. His hair was cute and curly and reminded me of Dr. McDreamy’s ‘do’ on Grey’s Anatomy.


    Season 2 American Idols Best Hairstyles – Kimberly Caldwell

    With a cute crop hairstyle, Kimberly Caldwell caught my attention and won my vote for American Idols Best Hairstyles season 2. I just love that she wasn’t afraid to chop it all off. I hope it encourages more people to be adventuresome when it comes to chaning their hairstyle. Her haircut is so cute and fun, I almost want to steal it for myself!


    Original idol, Kelly Clarkson wins best hairstyle for season 1 and overall Winner!!

    I can’t even count how many times my clients came in with pictures of this girl, wanting to get her hairstyle . . . both the color and cut. Her hairstyle must have been the most requested hairstyle our salon got for months and for good reason. Keeping up with the current hairstyle trends at the time, she had chunky streaks of blonde and her color also incorporated a beautiful mahogany and brown throughout. What a winner!
    Although I’m not a devoted fan, I’m looking forward to the next season of American Idol, not only for the talent, but also to see what American Idols best hairstyles will be in season 9!!
