    Smart Wavy Hair Styles Strategies

    What Celebrities Know about Wavy Hair Styles That You May Not Have Considered

    Anyone else bored with long wavy hair styles? Hair styles on the runways lately are so predictable . . . yawn. No, I don’t watch the shows, but it appears long, wavy hair is still THE hair style trend we’ll be seeing most of this summer. I’m getting just a wee-bit bored writing about wavy hair styles. . . anyone else getting bored? I mean, do you really need any more instructions on how to get “beachy waves?”

    I’m not saying I don’t like the look, its nice, it’s sexy and for the average wavy hair beauties among us, it’s relatively easy to style. And the long layered hair style makes for quick and easy updos, braids, ponytails, chignons, buns and twists, so what’s not to like there? But, for some it’s not so easy to keep a beachy wave . . . wavy, especially in the heat of summer.

    Even though I am becoming a bit jaded with the look, these were my favorite wavy hair styles that I’ve seen lately; Lily Collins, Selena Gomez, Nikki Reed, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone and Leighton Meester.

    Can you wear the style? Know your hair type

    If you have curly, straight thick or fine hair, you will have trouble maintaining this wavy hair look, especially in the heat of the summer months. You may be able to wrestle your hair into the hair style for a moment or two, but it won’t last, not if you fall into one of these hair style types. So why waste the time and effort and do more heat damage to hair in the process when it won’t last?

    This is why you hear hairdressers saying, in summer especially, it’s best to go with a hair style that works with your hair type, rather than trying to fight it into submission. (Did you notice many of the wavy hair styles became a bit more like crested and fallen waves by the end of the Awards Show? And they have pros styling their hair using the best hair products and all the tricks of the trade!

    Soft Hair Waves

    Soft Hair Waves, How To . . .

    Pretty, feminine looks are popping up all over the fashion runways Tabatha Coffey JOICO Artistic Team member and owner of Industrie Hair Gurus in Ridgewood, NJ, gave us the scoop on making waves the perfect style to flatter those floaty dresses and romantic skirts.

    “I think we will definitely see more hair waves, movement and texture in hair styles. Sculpted soft hair waves give hair such a sexy, feminine look that everybody will be wearing them in different variations to suit their lifestyle’ says Coffey.

    • Soft Waves Tip #1: Begin with dry hair and part it where it naturally falls.
    • Soft Waves Tip #2: Taking small (1-inch or less) sections. mist lightly with a working hair spray and roll hair around a curling iron. The smaller the iron, the tighter the curl.
    • Soft Waves Tip #3: Gently remove each tendril from the wand and secure with a pincurl clip.
    • Soft Waves Tip#4: After tresses have cooled completely, release the clips and use a bristle hair brush to softly comb and define each wave. (For a stronger wave, leave the pincurls in place for more time.)

    Vintage Hair From the 40’s and 50’s is Hot!

    Vintage Hair from 40’s and 50’s Making Big Waves

    If you watched the Grammy hair you saw some of the celebrities wearing vintage hair straight out of the 40’s and 50’s’. I talked about some of them in my article yesterday on hot Grammy hair. But back in December Intake Weekly was ahead of the curve with this interesting article:

    Vintage hair cuts for the modern you

    Try a twist on a classic 40’s or 50’s hair for a cool new look.

    By Nicole Edwards

    More and more Indy hairdressers are getting requests to bring back vintage hair.

    “Vintage hair is really the big thing right nowVintage hair is really the big thing right now,” said Jason Hagemier, hair cutting coach at Reeda Todd / Aveda Lifestyle Spa/Salon.

    The new vintage hair styles might have something to do with the November release of “Walk the Line,” in which Joaquin Phoenix sports a sculpted pompadour and Reese Witherspoon’s mid-century curls crown her head. But vintage hair seen today often takes a modern spin on Hollywood glamour of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.

    Hagemier said ladies are looking to mimic the Gwen Stefani look — a 50’s retro vintage hair style that has been coined the “mush and pin,” a messier hair style with volume that he said requires some backcombing and pinning.

    And men, deep into rockabilly music and culture, often steer straight for pompadour peaks.The 50’s updo and vintage hair waves.

    Anyone can wear an updo, according to Hagemier. All you have to do is pile your hair on top of your head . . . fashionably. When contemplating an updo, Hagemier recommends hair styles that flatter the shape of the person’s face.

    “I think that all has to do with balance, depending on your face,” Hagemier said. “You can basically wear any vintage hair style as long as you wear the correct balance around your head.”

    If you’re not going for the updo look, hair can still maintain a vintage hair style by pinning a section of hair into a roll in the front and creating medium-sized hair wave around the rest of your head.

    Products Hagemier uses for vintage curls: “I just like a light setting gel or setting lotions,” Hagemier said. “

    How To Blow Dry Hair With A Natural Wave

    Gone are the days of needing to decipher the how-to’s of hair styling on your own

    Those of you with naturally wavy hair are in luck this year . . . as long as you know how to make the best of your natural waves. Most women when told by their hairdresser that they are fortunate to have naturally wavy hair, will come back with something like; “But my hair doesn’t have a nice consistent wave that I can let it go natural.” It’s true, most naturally wavy hair will be more wavy in one area than in another. You need a good haircut with some layering that will allow the natural wave to come through and give a good shape to the hairstyle.

    Has a hairdresser been able to coax your hair into a hairstyle using just your natural wave and a product or two? If so, you can duplicate it and save styling time and wear and tear on your hair.

    Richard Ashforth, the International Creative Director for Saco, has put together an easy to follow, comprehensive video for styling your natural wavy hair. I particularly like that he doesn’t get carried away with hair care products. Too many hairdressers will have you believe you need a half-dozen products to make a hairstyle come together. Richard suggests only two products, that’s it! He uses a thick leave-in conditioner to bind the hair together and a mouse to aid in styling and to add shine to the hair. Using more products for this hairstyle would weigh the hair down, resulting in loss of both volume and curl.

    A subtle step Richard gives that is important not to skip, is gently massaging the product out. Doing this will make your hair look softer and get rid of the “crispy” look, that hair care products can give to the wave. Check out the video here:
