5 Easy Hairstyles for Work

Looking good every day is pretty hard. Sometimes you wake up in the morning and you just don’t have it in you to spend time doing your hair. This is fair, and here are a few easy ways to deal with that problem.

Loop Ponytail

This is simple, five minute and above all manageable hairstyle that can give you a clean cut look and make it look like you went the extra mile on a simple hairstyle First spray your hair smooth with hairspray, then pull your hair back into a ponytail and secure it with elastic. Use your fingers to separate your hair above elastic and create a hole that is centred above it. Pull the ponytail through the hole and pull it taut. Smart, simple, professional.

DIY Ballerina Bun

If you need to look elegant and like you really tried with your hair without wasting the effort this is a hairstyle that really makes it look like you care. Flip your hair into a high ponytail, use a holder to secure. Use a smoothing brush to tease your hair to give the illusion of volume, alternately if you don’t have the hair volume a BioTHIK treatment may be worth considering. Next, twist your hair and wrap it around the base to create the shape. Secure this with bobby pins until you can shake your head without slipping. Then just smooth the hair down.

Bubble Ponytail

This will give a bouncy excitable and cheerful image to a hairstyle and will make you seem lively and fully energized. First pull your hair into a ponytail, tease out the length, starting at the hair tie. Then tie another elastic band around the ponytail about a third of the way down from the base, then another about two thirds of the way down. Finally slide the elastic bands toward the base. This should bunch things up and create bubbles.

Chignon Twist

A twisted chignon can pull of an elegant look and project a simple no-fuss attitude that will make you look intense and focused. First, get your hair straight and tie a low ponytail. Then twist the ponytail, if you’re feeling energetic divide it into separate sections and wrap them around each other. Then secure them with another hair band. Curl the twisted hair around the base of the ponytail. Once there’s a full circle around the base, pin the other end of the ponytail to your head.

Knot Ponytail

This is another cool twist on a basic ponytail that you don’t’ have to wrestle with. Divide your hair in half and tie it in a double knot. Secure the knotted ponytail with an elastic band and a couple of pins, then just tease the end, done and dusted no fuss muss and only two minutes work.

So if you’re running late, or you just don’t feel like really fixing your hair on the way out of the door, this is a quick way to get things done.

Getting the Best Eye Glasses for Your Face Shape

Getting the Best Eye Glasses for Your Face Shape

To look your best in your eyeglasses you’ll need to first get glasses that perfectly complement the shape of your face. While you might like the look and design of a certain pair of frames, you might not necessarily like the way that they look on your face. Find out what will work best for your features before you start your search for cheap glasses.

Circular Faces

If you have a face that has a circular shape, you’ll have well rounded cheeks, a wider forehead and a full chin. Everything on your face will be proportional as far as the width and length is concerned. Circular faces are well suited for frames that have lenses that are wider than they are deep. You can also try out frames that have a gentle upsweep at the edges in order to adequately complement your eyes and your cheeks. Other viable options are frames that will add angles to your face and dark-colored frames.

Round Faces

Round and oval faces have great balance and a softly curving jawline that is only slightly narrower than the person’s forehead. The cheekbones will sit high on the face, which is perfect for a variety of frames.

Your best bet will be either rectangular or square frames that will generously complement the curved lines of your face. One thing to keep in mind if you have a round or oval shaped face is that you’ll want to beware of frames that are either too big or too small for your face since they can ruin the natural balance of your features.

Square Faces

Individuals with square faces will have a broad forehead, square-shaped chin and a strong jawline. You’ll also have even proportions in terms of the length and width of your face. In order to find the frames that suit your square face the best, be on the lookout for frames that really let your features stand out.

Stick with round or oval-shaped frames as a way to add balance to your naturally straight lines. If you’ve got your eye on a rectangular pair of frames, look for frames that have subdued edges and steer clear of sharp corners.

Heart Faces

You’ll know you have a heart-shaped face if you have a broad forehead that curves down to a small chin. Your angled cheekbones will sit high on your face, which means you’ll need to make sure that the eyeglasses that you get will properly balance the rest of your face.

As you’re shopping for frames, find ones that are wider at the bottom than they are at the top in order to minimize your broad forehead. One of the very best things about having a heart face is that you can confidently pull off nearly any style of frame.

Rectangular Faces

A face that has more length than width is considered to be rectangular. Additional characteristics of rectangular faces are high cheekbones and longer noses and foreheads. By getting the right lenses for your face, you’ll be able to divide the length of your face and add width as well.

Select a pair of frames that have a prominent or strong brow line that will give you the necessary horizontal element near your forehead. You can also bring balance to your face by getting frames that have a bit of depth to the lenses. You can also round out the angularity of your rectangular face with frames that have gently curving lines and rounded edges. Frames to sidestep include narrow and small frames and lenses that will bring attention to the overall length of your face.

Be sure that you’re constantly thinking about the shape of your face, your fashion sense and your skin tone as you’re picking out glasses in order to find the most complementary match.
