Hair Styling Tips for the Average Joe

March 20, 2013 0 Comments A+ a-

Hairstyles, when properly chosen and cut, can flatter any woman. The wrong haircut can seriously damage your look. Beautiful and well-managed hair symbolizes the natural beauty and self-management skills of an individual.

For example, thin and lifeless hair can be cut and styled so that it won’t look limp and dull. When it comes to cutting and styling, layering does the trick. Layering hair gives off the illusion that you have a thicker head of hair than you actually do. A healthy diet, good sleeping pattern and a relaxed way of life also contribute to glowing and healthy hair.

Celebrity Styling Tips From the Pros
You can also take the lead with some celebrity styling hair tips. For example, if you suffer from dandruff, you can grind an aspirin to mix into your shampoo once or twice a week. Dandruff shampoos on the market today are well known for stripping away pigments from color treated hair or even dulling out natural colors. The aspirin will get the dandruff out without any side effects on your strands.

You can use baby powder on your roots when you feel that your hair is a little bit on the greasy side. Models and actresses who are in between shampoos have often worked with a stylist that will dust a little bit of baby powder onto their scalp and then blow dry out and style as usual. The baby powder works to absorb a good amount of the excess oil that is on the scalp at the root area.

Deciding on a Haircut
1. Talk with your salon professional about your hair type and the particular cut that will not only work well with the amount of hair that you have to work with, but also with your facial structure.

2. Do your research. Look at magazines for hairstyles that catch your eye. Try out websites that allow you to upload your picture and try different hairstyles and colors.

3. Before you finalize a new hair styling cut, it is important to consider your overall body shape and personality. Remember, the new hairstyle must compliment your looks and body. If it looks good on your face, it would definitely enhance your overall personality.

4. Consider your way of life, but be open to change. You would be surprised how much a hair color change or highlights can change your hairstyle and improve your over-all look.

5. After the hair cut, ask your hairstylist on how to style your hair so that it looks exactly the same as he styled it. Ask for products you can use to help maintain your hairstyle outside of the salon. Keeping a good line of communication open with your stylist will help you to achieve an overall look that you can be happy with.
