When Hair Dryers Don’t Work!

Hair Dryers
When Hair Dryers Fail!

I had a funny flashback this morning, to an o-l-d trick I used to do back in the 70’s, to style my hair smooth and sleek, without hair dryers or should I say before hair dryers. This trick just might help you too, to style your hair in a flash and avoid having a bad hair day when you find yourself without your hair dryers.

“When Your
Hair Dryers Fail”
Ok, picture this, my hubby and I started the second leg of a summer vacation this morning. We’ve just spent a week in the Rocky Mountains in Glenwood Springs and Aspen. Beautiful!! Lovely!! So Peaceful!! And now we are going to lollygag our way back to Minnesota. We’ll spend four days on the train taking the long way home, via Sacramento, California, Portland, Oregon, Glacier Park, Montana.

We needed to be at the train station at some un-godly hour this morning, repacked to fit smaller accommodations for the next four days. Although we have a said “shower” in our sleeper car, we’ve learned that a “shower” is a big stretch for a name that accomodation. So basically when leaving our hotel this morning, we needed to be showered up cause and out the door in less than 45min. Blow drying my hair at 4:30 am in the hotel room was something that I knew hubby would not have appreciated.

Long story short, I was scrambling and didn’t finish blow drying my hair by the time we needed to leave for the station. Now I was already committed to the blow-dry look, and couldn’t go to the ‘scrunched” look if you know what I mean. Horrors . . . this was to be my hairstyle for the next four days!

What did I do?  The cab driver actually helped me out on this one, by not having the air-conditioning on in his cab. As I rolled down the window and the warm air hit me, I had a flashback to the 70’s. We didn’t have hair dryers (blow-dryers) in the 70’s and the hot hairstyle was long smooth, sleek, the Cher hair look!

The only way we wavy haired girls could achieve the smooth look was by rolling our long hair in orange juice cans and sleeping on them overnight! (No wonder I have a bad neck) I’m not sure how we Quinn girls came up with this idea, but I think my sisters and I discovered the first blow-dry hairstyle (without hair dryers.).

We learned the quickest, easiest way to get our wavy frizzy hair, smooth and straight was to blow dry it out the window of the car! It worked like a champ! Dry in less than five minutes flat and it was smoother and shinier than we were ever able to achieve before. The only styling involved was to look to the back of the car as you moved and brush your hair vigorously through your hair as it dried, stretching it straight!

Next time you find yourself without hair dryers, try this trick . . . it works!! It gets shiny because it’s drying quick and fast in cooler air than hair dryers allow for . . . even with the cool shot!

Hair Trends-From Long to Bald!

Demi Moore Bald

Hair Trends or Not?

Is it just me, or do you think we might be seeing the start of some new hair trends here? It’s our job to be on the look out for what’s new with hair trends and the hair industry, I’ve been seeing how this new trends of “no hair” as a hairstyle, has kind of crept up on us in the past few years or so. And this new hair trend includes both sexes!

“New Hair Trends”Actually, this hair trends got its start in the 70’s with Telly Savalas, who played Kojak, (“Who loves ya baby”), was noted the “sexiest” Hollywood hunk of his time, with his shinny, razored shaved head and always sucking a lolly-pop . . . started a hair trend. But it was mainly men who followed his lead back then and the look was shinny and bald. It was only the brave who dared go where others dared not tread . . . and they got attention and stares of all sorts.

But I think “the buzz” has risen to the ranks of being called a “new hair trend.” It was legitimately that for boys and men some time ago, but it has crossed the line and now we see the gals who have braved that hair trends barrier! (A bit more bravado on the women’s part don’t you think?) Anyways, a nice fallout from this new hair trend, is that those women who now loose their hair from chemotherapy, have more options. More women are choosing to be seen without hair during their treatment, and they feel better about themselves!

Tell us what you think. New hair trends . . . or not?

Sassoon Salon offers New Hairstyles from Classic Looks

New hairstyles from classic haircuts are what Mark Hayes, the Creative Director for Sasoon Salon International, has unveiled for their Spring/Summer collection called Blithe. The cool and classic 1940’s are what inspired these new hairstyles. I like the looks because each look in the collection is unique and fresh, yet will still look classic and chic years from now as well.

Seems like ideas for new hairstyles can’t come to us quick enough. My clients want to try new hairstyles, my friends are asking for what’s new and our readers are always looking for the next new hairstyles out there.  So, here are some great hairstyles from a great group of artists. I have always admired Sassoon’s hairstyles because they are always classic looking, yet something about them are fresh, fun and different than everything else that’s out there.

Medium Length New Hairstyles from Sassoon

New Hairstyles, A perfect solution for that in-between length

I love this look because it is perfect for my clients who are in the process of growing out their hair. Adding full bangs to medium length hair is a great way to try something different without cutting any length. This new hairstyle calls for a thick, full bang that is straightened and the rest of the hairstyle is full of body.

You can get this look by scrunching in mousse like the one suggested above throughout hair (except for your bangs). Then blow dry bangs straight with a flat paddle brush and flat iron if necessary.

Long Hairstyles from Sassoon

Something sleek and chic, this long new hairstyle is super stylish

If you aren’t willing to part with your long locks, new hairstyles may seem scary to you. But the Sassoon Salon group has come up with a solution for this. This chic long hair style is perfect for keeping your length, but adding something new. The full fringe shown in the picture is a great way to add something different to your long hairstyle.

Not willing to get fringe that full? No problem. Try any style of bangs to create a new look from your current hairstyle.

Style this look by using a flat iron and ironing hair in small sections until you achieve this super sleek and straight look. If this will be your everyday look, I’d suggest using a heat protectant like TIGI S-Factor Heat Defender Flat Iron Shine Spray, which will protect hair from heat damage and give strands a brilliant shine.

If you are looking for ideas for new hairstyles, I’d highly suggest trying one of these Sassoon Salon’s looks from the Blithe Collection.  These looks are fun, fresh and new without being unusual.
