    Are you stuck in a hairstyle rut?  

    Read on for some quick and easy ways to style long hair that will make you feel like a you just got a makeover!

    All too often we get into a beauty rut, wearing the same thing and doing the same thing, day in and day out.  It’s safe, it’s easy and it’s comfortable, but it’s not very exciting.  Here are some simple ways to style long hair for a change that is fresh and fun.

    If you normally wear your hair pulled back in a ponytail (and who doesn’t love the ease of a ponytail!) try adjusting the height of your pony.  A ponytail swept high on your head (not like Pebbles from the Flintstones, but at the back of your crown) elongates your cheekbones and eyes and can change the illusion of  the shape of your face, giving you a whole new look.  And if you usually wear it high, try low, loose ponytail for an elegant, new look.

    Look how different Gwynneth Paltrow looks in each picture, simply by adjusting the height of her ponytail.

    Headbands aren’t just for the gym anymore. If you only pull your locks back to wash your face, try a simple headband for a modern look. You can create a messy, tousled look or something more polished, simply by adding apiece of fabric to frame your face. And a bonus is your won’t be pushing your hair out of your eyes all day!  You can find simple. functional headbands at most major drug stores, or fancy ones at your favorite department store.

    If up-dos are more your style, try a simple French Twist if you typically wear a bun.  Your local drug store likely carries several inexpensive styling tools that can help you create a sleek twist, or with a twist of your wrist and a few pins you can go for a  more casual styling approach, a la Renee Zellweger.

    Blow Outs

    If you have a little extra time on your hands, you can go from curly to straight for a completely different look. If you don’t want to pay for a salon blow out, wash your hair and add a styling gel at home, then dry as usual and go over sections of your hair with a flat-iron. If you have pin straight hair, try some foam rollers or electric rollers to add waves and volume to create a bold new hairstyle.  Taylor Swift shows just how dramatic the difference can be.

    Braids aren’t just for school girls any more.  For a special party look, try braiding a small section of hair long the side of your face, then sweeping it back behind your ear, secured with a pin. This simple style is chic and elegant and can really glam up a look.  Anne Hathaway looks so fresh with her simple braid.

    Attractive woman with a flower as a hair accessory

    In celebration of spring, try adding a fresh or silk flower to you hairstyle.  Tucked behind your ear or secured with a pin in a ponytail, flowers can make your hairstyle playful or elegant. And you don’t have to save the flowers for a special night – a small flower used to highlight your style can be perfectly acceptable at work.

    Don’t be afraid to try new hairstyles. You might even find a completely different look that will work better for your hairstyle and your lifestyle!

    “Its Derby Hat
    Time Again”
    Since the Kentucky Derby’s beginning in 1875 fans have gathered in the thousands at Churchill Downs to partake in one of Americas biggest all-get-out bashes of the year. Guys in their bowler hats and silks and gals flirting their fine fripperies with Derby hats and mint juleps in hand.

    And, don’t forget the colorful ‘infield crowds,’ the thousands of regular folks who pay a pittance in comparison to the $3,000 to $60,000 the high rollers pay for their ‘personal seat license.’ These folks like to whoop-it-up a bit more than the sophisticates and they have their own creative styles of Derby hats to reflect their collective spirit. It’s a show!!
