How to Do Sexy Hair Like a Pro

Sexy Curls with face-framing layers

Sophisticated by Day . . . Sexy by Night

To maximize your beauty potential, owner Eric Fisher of Eric Fisher Salons in Wichita, KS offers these tips:

Get a haircut that enhances your best features and minimizes flaws. “Be aware of what you think your best and worst features are,” says Fisher. “If you don’t like your prominent jaw, get soft, face-framing layers. For a round face, try a deep side part that has a slimming effect. If you don’t like your narrow face, add width to your cut with graduation that promotes side volume. Then accentuate your best features. Bangs always bring attention to your eyes; I like them right to the brow for a sexy look with sunglasses.”

Even eco-minded girls need a little hair color boost after too much summer sun. To keep it close to natural, Fisher recommends a semi-permanent hair color refresher. If you have an olive or tanned complexion or your skin has a touch of yellow, go two shades darker with a blue-based red or dark brunette. Looking to lighten up? Add a hint of tint and face-framing highlights. “They really make blue or green eyes pop,” says Fisher.

For a day-to-night change, nothing says sexy like curl. “What we’re doing is a dry pin curl set,” says Fisher. “Just wrap up the pin curl, hold it between your fingers and hit it with the flat-iron for a count of 10 or so. Once your hair is done, you’ll look like you sat under a dryer for 45 minutes.”

Amazing Grace

THE CUT: Combine face-framing layers, a collarbone-grazing length and a faux fringe coming off a far side part for a perfectly pretty, graceful look.

BY DAY: Prep damp locks with a light¬weight mousse and blow-dry, using a round brush to add end curve. Spiral-wrap front sections on the heavy side for a soft, sophisticated finish.

AT NIGHT: Shift the part to the opposite side, brush hair from the crown forward and set on jumbo-sized hot rollers. Set the top for volume and spiral-set longer lengths into waves. Once curls have cooled, brush from underneath and back-comb all around. You’ll be tressed to impress with a hint of edgy appeal.

Cute Hairstyles For Cute Winter Hats

Hat hair isn’t always a bad thing!

Who says you have to sacrifice form for function, or in this case fashion . . . when it comes to staying warm in the winter! Women tend to avoid hats when the temperature drops to avoid the dreaded hat hair look.  But everyone knows that you lose the greatest amount of body heat through  your uncovered noggin, and that is why you need to bundle up and top off in the winter. Its possible to look good while staying warm. Check out these adorable hats and their accompanying hairstyles. Your next fashion statement can be both functional and fabulous at the same time!

If you’re opting for a knit hat you have chosen a classic and easy style. While any length hair works well with a knit hat, you can add a touch of pertness by simply letting your hair peek out. Pull a few chunks of hair down on either side, or try deep side swept bangs to add an effortless vibe to your look. Or, wear the hat a bit farther back on your head to show a bit more hair and to frame your beautiful face!

Who says a wide brim hat is only a summer affair? A wide brim hat can keep you warm and looking chic at the same time. Both loose waves, and a braided ponytail, look great when topped off by a wide brim slouchy hat.  Loose waves have a beachy, sexy vibe (even in cold weather!) while a ponytail is practical and tells everyone that you take your style seriously.

Cute Knit Wither Hat

Beanies are great for keeping warm and looking great. Like the knit cap, you can wear them more forward to back on your head to allow for different cute hairstyle options. Generally speaking, you and your hat will look best if some of your hair is peeking through; try long softly curled tendrils with the rest tucked up and away.

winter beret leopard hat

If your look or style calls for a more serious approach, you can always sleek your hair back into a low bun and top off the look with a leopard beret. Any sleeked back hairstyle will make a statement with this hat.

Remember, great hair can make the difference between looking fab in your hat and looking just covered up. Treat your hair well during the winter months and keep a small bottle of Argan or Moroccon Oil in your purse. A quick spritz once you take your hat off will ward off hair static and restore moisture and luster to your hair, so you’ll look great inside as well as outside.

2013 Trending Hairstyles

New Year: New You with 2103 Hottest Hairstyles!

There’s no better way to liven up the new year, and a long winter than with a visit to the salon for a fresh hairstyle. We’re opening the style vaults for 2013 to let you in on the latest and hottest trends for the year. After all, new year = new (& improved) you!  Enjoy!

Anne Hathaway: chocolate brown hair and pixie haircut

Short Edgy Haircuts

Celebrities from Anne Hathaway to Miley Cyrus are shedding their long locks for super short, sexy haircuts. Pixie cuts can be a super easy and girly look and a dramatic change from typical longer looks. Arm yourself with confidence, and loads of styling product, for a bold, super short (and sexy!) new haircut. I love Bumble & Bumble’s Texture Cream for pixie cuts!

Blake Lively blonde messy side braid

Brittany Snow sexy blonde side braid

Messy Braid

If you’re not looking for a total change of look, but are wanting to switch up your hairstyle, nothing says 2013 like  an easy, messy braid.  Not only does a braid make an effortless day time look, but paired with a cocktail dress, is an ultra sexy option for a night out! To create an “undone” look like Brittany Snow and Blake Lively, try prepping your hair with some beach spray like d:fi beach bum texturizing spray.

Jessica Biel: Long layered hair with ombre hair color and bangs

Taylor Swift long blonde hair with layers and bangs

Bangin’ Bangs

One of my favorite ways to change up my look without committing to a total hairstyle change, is with a bang change. Jessica Biel and Taylor Swift have the same idea in mind, with their glamorous long hair paired with a flirty new bangs. Keep your look up to date with this year’s hottest accessory: full, eyelash skimming bangs. To keep your look polished (and avoid pesky fly aways) add a finishing touch with Kenra Shine Spray.

Ombre (yep it’s still in!)

Another year has passed, and ombre is as hot as ever. (Ombre is a color technique where hair fades from dark to light, or vise versa.) Women around the world (me included!) can release a sigh of relief with the assurance that they can still rock this hot look and avoid monthly retouches at the salon. So rock on ladies, ombre’s not going anywhere for a while!

Hot Headbands

Maybe Blaire Waldorf has been onto something all along. While she’s been teased for her obsession with headbands in the hot TV series, Gossip Girl, headbands have become a hot new addition to hairstyles for 2013. Sorry Blaire, it’s not always easy being a trendsetter!

So while your hitting the gym and resolving to ditch that extra Starbucks, treat yourself to a resolution that will have you smiling and others turning heads. After all, who can resist the hot new hairstyles of 2013? Stay up with all the happenings in hair trends by following our Pinterest Hair Trends and Celebrities Boards.
