    Wedding or Prom Updo Ideas

    Charlize Theron Hairstyle
    Learn how to create great updos with hair accessories

    It’s been a while since I’ve written about hair accessories. It is great to be able to pull out some fun thingies in your arsenal of options to keep from getting bored out of your skull with your hairstyle. I find that most of my clients who don’t use hair accessories simply don’t know how to use them in a creative way. Well, I have good news for those of you who are in that “I don’t know how” boat.

    Jaime Byrd was kind enough to send me a heads up about her new videos featured on her hair accessory website. Jaime has produced a line of hair accessories that are hand crafted in her studio in North Carolina that are fun and unique. But what stands out about her site is the neat way she has used “how to” videos to walk you through the step-by-steps on exactly how to create a unique hairstyle with hair accessories. Don’t miss it. If you haven’t experimented much with hair accessories, it just might be the boost you need to step out of the box and create a new look.

    A couple of years back at the Golden Globe ceremonies, Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron and Beyonce were seen with hair accessories, once again giving credibility to a classic fashion secret that has been around for decades.

    Several times a week, this time of year, I need to get my hair up off my shoulders, either when I’m active, at the beach or at a pool party. Summertime is an especially good time of the year to remember the versatility of hair combs, headbands, silk flowers, hair clips, hair sticks, hairpins, barrettes, hair magnets, snaps and French pins.

    Long Prom Hair Styles: So Pretty, So Easy

    Long Prom Hair Styles

    Long Prom Hair Styles . . . Go Casual, But Shine!

    The prom hair routine of not so long ago was a completely different story than today. Lucky you! I have memories of way too much time spent at the hair salon getting shampooed followed by a roller set that was so tight, it left you with a headache and a face lift at the same time. You then sat under the hair dryer till your ears and face turned red. Next came a violent comb-out, in a sort of rip and tear kind of way.

    After that came the main prom hair styling technique of the day, RATTING! These hairdressers knew how to RAT, that is, back-combing or teasing, taken to a violent extreme which made your hair like a rat’s nest and stay put for months. Some-how after lots of combing over, spraying, twisting and pinning, voila . . . the masterpiece . . . love-locks.

    We all had long prom hair styles, we all looked the same and basically we all them. Tears, were shed by many as they left the salon that hopeful day, feeling older than dirt. And, that’s just what you asked the hairdresser NOT to do! “Please DON”T make me look old.

    Good news for you gals, formal hair routines have evolved eons since that time. If you’re talented with hair styling techniques you may be able to recreate some of these casual long prom hairstyles at home. But, don’t leave it to chance!
