Lindsey Vonns Long Layered Hair Style a Winner!

Long Layered Hair Style

Long layered hair style perfect for Lindsey Vonn

Lindsey Vonn’s long layered hair style reeks classy sophistication on this two-time World Champion! What could be more delectably feminine than long blonde softly face-framing layers on a fiercely competitive gal like Lindsey? It almost seems like an oxymoron . . . and that’s one reason she is the ‘darling,’ the poster girl of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

OK, I’m looking for some reason to put up a post on Lindsey Vonn. There are plenty of us in her hometown of St. Paul/Minneapolis who will be vigorously cheering on our poster gal this weekend. Every kid who has hit the slopes of “Buck Hill,” in the Minneapolis suburb of Burnsville, where Lindsey got her start, will be holding on to the seat of their pants, (no pants on the ground) in anticipation.

Lindsey Vonn is arguably the all time world’s best woman alpine skier with two consecutive World Cup wins in 2009 and 22 World Cup wins on her resume! She has been on ski’s since the age of 2 and has spent over 20 years perfecting her talent in this sport! She is in pursuit of 5 gold medals in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics starting this Friday, February 12th. She will first compete in the ladies combined downhill on Valentine’s day February 14th.  Jim Tracy, a United States ski-team coach, described the first time he saw Vonn ski. “She’s hauling down the mountain, her skis probably going 60, but the rest of her was hardly moving. It was like watching water flow down a hill.”

But, back to Lindsey Vonns long layered hair style, since that’s what hairstyle-blog is about . . . the question comes to mind, what does a beautiful world-class athlete do with her hair? Her hair style needs to be functional first and foremost. For any athlete, a hair style needs to stay out of the face when practicing and competing and it needs to be quick and easy to style. Lindsey shared recently that she spends 6 to 8 hours a day in the gym preparing for the Olympics . . . that doesn’t leave much time for fussing with hair!

For Lindsey a long layered hair style is perfect because it does both these things and it’s so versatile. She can pull it out of her face, into a ponytail or bun, for practicing and working out and put a cap on it as she is often seen doing out and about. For a head turning bouncy, feminine look, a long layered hair style can be curled using hot rollers, curling iron or velcro rollers. Long layered hair styles can also easily be converted into a variety of updo’s.

Lindsey marries Thomas Vonn 9/29/07 Lindsey is a class act, everything we could hope for in our top athletes. We wish her success in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics!!  She is a fearless competitor who has worked, like world-class athletes work, towards her dream. Here is an excerpt from an article from Bill Pennington, a sport reporter for the N.Y. Times writes, from an interview he did with Lindsey;”Vonn is not naturally introspective. But when I asked her how she has managed to perform successfully under pressure in recent years, especially since stress seemed to undo her in the past, she paused. “Athletics at the highest level is a sport within a sport,” she answered, looking at the ceiling. “When you’re young, you develop ways to win, and you think they will always work, but then you get to the top, competing against the other top athletes, and sometimes things don’t work. You go home and ask yourself what went wrong, and for me the answer was that I didn’t have enough confidence in my preparation, and I didn’t have enough trust in myself.

“So now I know that I’ve worked harder and prepared myself better than anyone. And I have put things in place. I have a race routine. I have a team of people helping me. I have winning habits. I believe in myself. I have balance in my life. In the end, it’s a mental maturity to let your best come out.”

Hair Color Ideas; Awesome Fall Trends

Hair Color Ideas

Heat Up Your Look this Fall With These Gorgeous, Rich Hair Color Ideas!

With honey blonde, champagne reds, and rich caramels and chocolate, the forecast for fall hair color ideas are delicious. Whether you want to explore your darker side or want to lighten up this fall, tis the season to try something new with your hair color. We’ve got you covered with the 4 hottest hair color ideas this fall season.

Honey Blonde

Hair color this fall is taking on warmer tones including blondes. This golden shade of warm honey blonde is a great way to enhance naturally warm skin tones. If you don’t want to go all the way, consider adding some honey high lights or low lights to enhance your glowing skin. Warm honey blonde looks gorgeous with long flowing hair or untamed waves.

 

Hair Color Ideas

Champagne Red

Take your blonde to another level with this trendy champagne hair color twist. Because it’s cooler than copper and strawberry blonde, champagne red is a great choice for skin with blue undertones or olive skin. If you have paler skin, champagne is also a great way to add depth as lighter blonde colors can wash out women with lighter skin. This color pairs well with a sweet bob or pretty pixie.

Hair Color Ideas

 

Caramel & Chocolate

Embrace fall hair color with a deep chocolate shade complimented with accents of a rich caramel hue. Fall is a great time to experiment with darker color, and these irresistibly warm and velvety hues can make skin brighter and more youthful. Pair this color with layers or waves to show off the gorgeous dimension.

Cinnamon Stick

Now that you’re done swimming in the pool and sitting in the sun for a while, it’s officially the  the best time to enjoy those vibrant red colors again! Paired with pale or cool skin tones, cinnamon red is a fun way to give your look a punch of color. Whether long or shorter, this spicy color looks great with bangs.

Hair Color Ideas

Dark Chocolate

Go au naturale with a shade in rich dark chocolate. If your go-to color is black, consider warming up your look with a shade lighter. This is a subtle way to modernize your hair color without a drastic change. Shine on with a super smooth and straight look for your dark chocolate locks.

If you don’t want a major haircut but want to change up your look for fall, hair color is a great way to experiment with your look. Our tans may be fading along with shorter evenings and lazy vacations, but we can still hold on to a bit of warmth with fall’s rich (warmer) hair shades.
