    Auburn Hair Color of the Celebrities!

    Kristen Stewart

    Virtually all can wear auburn hair color!

    Kristen Stewart, (Twilight) showed up with an auburn hair color last night on David Letterman. She was there to plug the newest Twilight saga “Eclipse,” and looked rather stunning with her new auburn hair color. A change of hair color does her well and auburn hair color was the key.

    “Auburn Hair Color, a Classy Look on Most”Actually, auburn hair color is a hair color that works for nearly everyone! To make it work, it’s a matter of matching the tone of the hair color (the shade darkest to lightest) and the balance of cool or warmth with the skin tone.

    Auburn hair color is a blend of red and brown. The color can be mixed to take on more brown than red tones or vice versa. Also the brown can be in the cool tones (ashy, chocolatey) or warmer tones like (chestnut, golden brown.) The same is true with the red hair color used; it can be cool (burgundy) or a warmer red like (tomato?) Also the depth or level from light to dark auburn hair color varies to give auburn hair color its distinct look.
    The auburn hair colors on these celebrities show a wide range of warm and cool tones from light to dark. I think all these stars look great with an auburn hair color and they have a multitude of different skin tones . . . what do you think?

    Quick No Fuss Tips For Short Hair

    Short Hairstyle Tips

    Once you have a cut that’s right for you, use these quick and easy hair style techniques.

    “Quick and Easy
    Hair Styles”

    If you have very short hair, one of the simplest ways to control it is to mist it lightly with water. Use the same spritzer that you use for your plants and add a dash of conditioner if it’s needed. (If you add conditioner, shake before misting.) Then comb hair straight back and let it dry on its own. You can also slip on a headband just past the hairline, then push it forward and you get a set-in wave once you remove the band.

    Here are very quick and easy changes for short hair styles that can also be used on hair of other lengths.

    • lf you’re tired of the same old look, change your part from the right to the left or from the side to the center, It’ll give hair added height, because you’re going against the usual grain. Spritz hair with a light hair styling gel to hold the part in place. Or, smooth in a moisturizing, hair styling balm, then finger style. This gets rid of fizz in your hair and adds polish.

    • Another idea for a quick and easy hair style gives you instant volume. Brush the front of your hair straight back, then slide the brush forward, on top of your head, to create a lift or curve in front. Spritz the uplifted roots with a volumizer. Continue to hold the hair brush in place as you blow dry the layer of hair for about 15 seconds with the hair dryer heat setting on warm, then switch to a cool air setting to lock the hair in place. This technique works on any type of hair, except super curly hair.

    • To dress up short hair, part it in the middle and slip in barrettes at the sides.

    Layered Haircuts; The Shag

    Short Layered Haircuts

    Shag Layered Haircuts are Back From the Past

    Layered haircuts are one of the most commonly requested haircuts that I get. Everyone wants a layered haircut, whether they are long layers, short layers, or somewhere in between. What I’m suggesting a lot right now is an updated version of the layered shag. Remember the shag layered haircuts from the 70’s and 80’s?  Well they are back again in a big way!.

    Short Layered Haircuts
    Taylor Momsen and Kristen Stewart, are just two celebrities to jump on the layered haircut bandwagon. Their layered haircuts are a bit more on the extreme versions of this layered hairstyle. I prefer something that you can wear every day, so here are some layered haircuts that are great for everyday wear:

    Lisa Rinna in a Short Layered Haircut

    Meg Ryan, first made the short layered haircut famous and Lisa Rinna has now perfected it. Their layered haircuts are perfect examples of what I’m talking about. A shag layered hairstyle is great for someone who wants a lot of body, movement and texture in their short hair. If you want to steal this hairstyle, I would suggest asking your hairdresser for super short layers blended into the length of your hair.  Also, this is such an easy haircut to style in the morning, you’ll be able to get out of the house in a flash! Blow dry all over, no need to use a brush and then add some texturizing product like Bed Head Manipulator, into the hair and style. I love these short layered haircuts since they are so easy to style and so stylish to wear!

    Medium Layered Haircut on Kate Moss

    Incorporating this shag hairstyle, are great for those in the process of growing out their hair. It will give you a fabulous new look while your hair is ‘in-between’ hairstyles. For a medium layered shag, you can get away with longer layers. Have your hairdresser cut in all over layers and then go back and do loads of texturizing throughout for that shaggy look.

    Long Layered Haircut on Ashlee Olsen

    Long Layered Haircut

    I love, love, love this look!  This is a great way to add a lot of volume and body to long, lifeless locks. If you love this long layered haircut too, ask your hairdresser for a lot of choppy layers throughout your long hair. You can style this by flipping hair in and out with a flat iron or large barrel curling iron and then spraying a dry wax spray throughout layered pieces. I like Paul Mitchell’s Dry Wax, because it doesn’t seem to leave too much of a build up on strands.

    These long layered haircuts are so hot right now, I think I may just have to copy Ashlee Olsen’s hairstyle and claim it as my own. Remember that we are all about change and switching up your hairstyle this season, so why not try one of these shag-alicious styles.
