Cute Bob Hairstyle for Strong Jaw Lines

Cute Bob Hairstyle

If Have a Face Shape With a Strong Jaw Line Try This Cute Bob Hairstyle

This cute little bob is one of the easiest haircuts to style. That’s because the edges create a strong shape. Hair is shorter in back and rounds out to longer pieces in front, but the line is fairly sharp. There’s little need for layers, bangs or any other elements; keep it simple and keep it cool. For a touch of volume on top, Amanda Braun of Jean Byford Salon in Columbus, OH snips in a few short layers that will add lift. The length works for petite, oval-shaped faces; get your next haircut a little longer if you have a strong jaw line. To dress it up, slip in jeweled clips. Suddenly, it’s evening-right!

  • This Hairstyle Works Best If:

    • Your hair is medium to dense in volume and medium in texture.

    • Your hair is naturally straight.

Brazilian Keratin Hair Treatment

Brazilian Keratin Hair Treatment

Brazilian Keratin Hair Treatment Good or Bad?

Brazilian Keratin hair treatment has been getting lots of buzz lately. I mostly have been getting questions from clients and have been aware of the chatter from the internet on what I think of the product. We haven’t used this in my salon so to get more information on this hair treatment; I turned to the people at Marcia Teixeira Brazilian Keratin Treatment for answers.

The Brazilian keratin hair treatment is a straightening process that is considered natural because it uses keratin, a type of protein with amino acids that is naturally occurring in your hair already. Keratin is the main structure building protein in our hair and nails and it is what makes hair strong and flexible. The makers of this keratin hair treatment, extract the keratin from sheep’s’ wool.

Marcia Teixeira, says that the keratin hair treatment can be used on any hair type . . . even children! It is said to be very gentle and perfect for anyone who cannot get other hair straightening treatments because they have highlighted or colored hair.

The Brazilian keratin hair treatment takes approximately two to three hours to process, depending on how much hair you have. Touch ups are required every four months or so to maintain the ultra straight, smooth and shiny look. After the treatment, it is suggested that you avoid washing your hair, wet it, use hair products or put it in a hair band or ponytail for at least three days. The hair must obviously be in a fragile state after the process if it needs this amount of resting time.

If you are considering getting a keratin hair treatment, here’s what to expect:  A professional hairdresser with training in applying the keratin hair treatment will shampoo your hair with a special shampoo. Then, your hair is saturated with the keratin hair treatment product, blown dry and flat ironed silky straight.

It all sounds so wonderful, but that’s not the end of the story. There are many women who have had big problems with this treatment, suffering with major hair loss and other issues. A look at the hair forum will give you some insight into the negative aspects of these straightening treatments.

Just like with any chemical treatment, I’d suggest having a strand test done before going forward with a treatment. Ask the hairdresser to perform a strand test on an inconspicuous part of your hair. Then wait at least a week before you return to the hair salon to get the entire treatment.

According to some of the negative reviews, hair breakage and hair loss started showing up the week after having the treatment. Brazilian keratin treatment is not new. Barb wrote an article about Brazilian Keratin hair treatment when it first came out. It appears even at that time there was some concern about ‘formaldehyde’ a probable carcinogen, being in the product.

It’s a good idea to do some research on the pros and cons of this treatment before making an appointment. If you want to visit a trained professional regarding this treatment, you can find a hair salon that offers this service through the Marcia Teixeira Brazilian keratin hair treatment website. The hair salon can give you a quote on how much it will cost. Most treatments cost between $150 and $500

Updating To a New Hairstyle

New Hairstyle

Still Look Like Your High School Year Book Picture?

Updating to a new hairstyle does not have to involve a complicated drastic change or spending a week’s salary on a total makeover. By making a few simple hairstyle changes, it can appear as if you’ve made a major transformational update to your overall appearance. Start with subtle changes, do you really like your current hairstyle, but get bored with it from time to time? Here are a few simple things to try:

New Hairstyle

Try some Extensions

If you’re thinking about changing your hair color, why not opt to add highlighted hair extensions for a quick and easy temporary new hairstyle update? The easiest pieces come already sewn onto clips, ready to be placed anywhere you see fit.

I’m not one who cares about sewing, but if you don’t mind a little bit of stitching, you can spend even less on wefts of hair that can be cut and sewn onto clips. Sally’s Beauty Supply has a variety of hair extensions available and I find normally their staff is well educated and helpful with questions you might have.

Try Some Bangs

Bangs are the most versatile tool in your arsenal. If you can’t style your existing hair into bangs, don’t forget there are plenty of inexpensive bang extensions. Most likely your hairdresser has some in stock that can be customized and colored to perfectly match your existing color. We’ve got dozens of hot looks on our Beautiful Bangs and Fringe Pinterest Board check them out.

Changing Texture

Or, how about simply changing the texture of your hair? If your hair is normally straight, try setting your hair on hot rollers for added volume and body. This type of hairstyle requires some products if you want it to hold for any considerable amount of time.

For lift, I like Sexy Hair Root Pump and for good holding power, one product I use on lots of clients lately is, Kenra Volume Spray 25. That’s my new hair styling elixir!

If you want to change your wavy or curly hair, don’t under-estimate the power of the flat iron. I know some hair style magazine guru’s have been trying to tell you the flat iron is flat out these days, but, don’t believe everything you read!! All you need do is take a look at what hairstyles the celebs are wearing at their latest soirees.

Go ahead, take the plunge! If you haven’t already invested in a good ceramic flat iron, now is probably a good time. If you want to shop online, Folica has good prices and great reviews to help in your choice of hair styling tools.

Change Your Part

Try experimenting with a different part. Center parts are really hot right now and if you want to be really on the cutting edge try a deep side part and a slicked back look.

By utilizing these programs, it can save you a lot of time, money and unnecessary effort. By choosing subtle and temporary changes to your hair, it will give you a visual of what to expect before you dive in and make a full commitment to updating to a brand new hairstyle.
