Sick of the same old hair in the mirror some hints for a change
Flick through a cool magazine for inspiration on a great hairstyle. Cut out at least 2 pictures of the hairstyle you want and take it into your fab hairdresser! Go for a sweeping side fringe and textured layers. Make sure it's a big enough change for people to notice, otherwise it's a waste of money. Brave enough to dye your hair? Go for a color close to but not the same as your natural color. Go for streaks in the same color, but in different shades. For example, blonde streaks in light, medium and dark.
Now, the tools! You have a great cut now, but your hair is frizzy or just plain flat. To fix all these problems, you need a multistyling hair straightener (yes, straightener). The GHD straightener is the BOMB. It will straighten your hair in a few minutes! It will also help smooth down frizzies. Here's the right way to straighten: Wash your hair with your shampoo and conditioner, then add in your hair drying product. Then, when your hair is completely dry, straighten it and add your serum. If your hair is dead straight, you can use it to create texture and LIGHT waves. A good hair dryer is also needed. The ones with diffusers are the best, because they will leave your locks sleek and smooth.
One thing you always need is products. Firstly, a good serum. This baby will eliminate frizzies, smooth down hair, make your hair glossy, sleek and shiny - yes, all in one product! Also, a shampoo and conditioner for your specific hair type is a must-have. For example, if you have dry hair, get a shampoo and conditioner formed for dry hair. The same goes for frizzy, thin, damaged, or colored hair. Also, a product that you can put in your hair when you have just washed it is good. For example, a product that you can put in your hair before you blow dry and straighten it (LOREAL has great ones), or a product that you can put in your hair before blow drying it and texturising it. If your hair has a tendency to frizz up or rebel against straightening throughout the day, a heated styling brush is a great idea. Just brush your hair with it on your breaks for sleek hair all day, every day! If not, a boar-haired brush is great for detangling without the pain. Also a wide-toothed comb is a must-have, as is a parting comb. The parting comb is good because you can change the part in your hair to make sure your new style stays new. For this reason, it is a good idea to get a flexible style cut in.
Style your hair naturally. It's easiest if you don't try and change your natural hair. If you have curly hair, style it, curly hair can be beautiful.
Tips Don't get layers if you have curly or wavy hair, unless you are prepared to invest in a damn good hair straightener! Otherwise, your hair will just become even curlier. As long as you straighten it, layers will look great on thick hair, and they will also thin it out.
Don't get a short crop if you have curly or wavy hair, unless you want to look like you have an afro. Seriously.
Curls are absolutely gorgeous! They can be soft, or tight, as long as they aren't frizzy. Work with your natural hair.
You can get a perm, even if you have wavy or curly hair. It helps to enhance your natural curls/waves.
Dye your hair any colour you wish, as long as you're ready for it and you're sure it won't make you look dead.(unless that's the look you are going for!)
Enjoy your new look, and don't give away your fab hair secrets unless you want someone else to steal the spotlight away from you!
Warnings Straightening and blow-drying every day can cause hair to even fall out with regular use. It's best to style your hair with gels or sprays, but if you absolutely hate the shape of your hair, get it permanently straightened. Be careful though, many people have had their hair fall out or break off! Make sure you know your stylist and make sure that they work with quick hands.
Never straighten hair with a hair straightener when it is wet (unless it is a special hair straightener) You don't want your hair to fry and break off.
