Is Your Hair High Maintenance? Here’s the Lowdown on what’s in for Spring.

Sleek Bob

Your hair can either be your “crowning glory” or simply, a mess. Your lifestyle plays a huge part in determining whether you can handle a high-maintenance “do” or whether you need low maintenance.

Low maintenance styles are generally those that are long layered haircut s that will grow out without much maintenance . You can often go 6-8 weeks between cuts. For many women, mid-length hair styles are a good, stylish option. Shoulder length hair styles are low maintenance but they also prove very versatile.

TIP:  If you like bangs, opt for a side-swept style.

Higher maintenance styles such as short, short cuts and “bobs”  need  4 to 6 week  salon visits. Ask your stylist to help you decide if your bob should be soft or blunt. If you want bangs, remember that full bangs across the forehead will need frequent, regular trims.

TIPS:

1. This spring, buns  and pony tails go low and make a shift to the nape of the neck.

2. 70s fringe and full front bangs are very of-the-moment.  ( are you saying too trendy?)))

3. Extreme side parts no matter what length of hair you have.  (((Are you saying do or do not do extreme parts or are they in style)

4.  Check out a layered shirt hairstyle. They are  very elegant and suit almost everyone . They’re easy to care for so if you have a busy lifestyle and want something totally different this might be for you.

5.  The inverted bob is definitely back and staying with us.

The start of a new year is always a good time to take a closer look at yourself, your wardrobe, your habits and your health and look at the “little” things that may be driving you crazy. After all, if you don’t look after yourself, who will? Ladies, it is time to make some changes!

1. Take a look at your eyebrow shape. Are they too thin? Do you see stray hairs? Remember, well groomed brows frame your eyes with or without makeup!

2. Does your makeup bag need a good clean out ? What about your makeup style? Take a critical look at how you apply makeup and the colors you are using. What might have worked before may look drab now. Brush up your look by getting a makeup lesson with a professional. A lot of department stores offer makeup consultants and you really do not have to buy ALL the products they suggest.

3. If your hair is looking dull and listless you may need a deep conditioning. Look for products that you can leave on your hair an hour or even overnight before rinsing. If you color your hair using a good conditioner will help keep your color last longer. Shiny hair just looks fabulous.

6. Your wardrobe may need sprucing up for the spring. Ttry adding a splash of color into an outfit. Breap up a black ensemble by injecting some brighter shades such as fuchsia ,camel or grape.

7. Don’t forget your accessories. Try adding a colored handbag or one in an animal print. Take a look at some patterned tights instead of heavy leggings. Consider buying colored gloves or a colored scarf. All too often we wear too many dark colors in the winter months. Adding splashes of colors not only brighten our look but help to brighten our attitudes as well.

8. Is it time for a well deserved mani pedi or bikini wax? You’ll feel so much better and in control of yourself once your personal maintenance is taken care of.
