Britney Spears Hairstyles

Britney Spears Hairstyles - Summer Fall 2009

Britney Spears’ hairstyles are most notable for the number of trends she has started even though she almost always wears her hair loose and long. It takes several years to grow hair to reach below the shoulders and Britney has drawn attention to her locks by using hair extensions, even launching her own signature collection.

Britney Spears Hair

Many young female teenagers rave about Britney Spears’ hair style and follow her hairstyle changes religiously to create their own “Britney” look. The one drawback to duplicating these style are the rather extreme styling techniques used to give Britney her unique hair styles, which may be damaging to the hair.
On the other hand, layering techniques are easy on the hair and essential to capturing the Britney look. The stylist will taper the layers toward the chin gracefully to frame the face, making sure that the outer layer of hair is the longest.
Adding hair color highlights is another way to add texture and depth to a Britney Spears’ hair style. You can use several different highlight colors selected to accent the golden blond hair color that she wears.
To add movement, a stylist should use a large-barreled curling iron to produce the ringlet and waves. Finish the styling by combing the hair with fingers instead of using a brush will give a more natural look. Wear your hair loose around your shoulders to complete your Britney Spears’ hairstyle. To keep your locks looking great, use hair spray or hair gel to reduce frizz and keep hair smoothly organized in their sleek arrangement.

Styling Coarse Hair

Styling Coarse Hair, Few Ideas - Summer Fall 2009

For women with coarse or curly hair, there is so little you seem to think can be done as far as styling is concerned. Here are a few ideas on what to do with your coarse or curly hair.
Up-do’s are always in, regardless of your age or color. For longer curly locks, a French twist with curls left to frame the face will create a professional or sexy look for any occasion. For the professional seeking an up-do, a simple ponytail with a twist will keep people wondering. To do this, pull the hair into a ponytail, and as you approach the last twist in your pony tail elastic, don’t pull the hair completely through. Leave the last 3 inches of hair inside the elastic for a fun and flirty look. Shorter hairstyles scream for more attention when you have coarse or curly hair. This hair type needs a lot of care to keep from having split ends and strays. To keep strays and flyaway’s from causing your short look to appear messy, use a spray wax or gel to secure them in place. The normal areas where this is seen are around the temples and ears.
Bobs and pixie cuts in coarse or short hair do not normally work out, so in order to keep a nice look while waiting for the hair to grow out, hair pins and barrettes do wonders. Pinning the hair in small sections up and away from the face makes a great up swept hairstyle for in between lengths.

For the fans who want to duplicate her fabulous style, this is a key point to keep in mind: you need to discuss the highlight colors that are best for you with your stylist. What works for Carrie Underwood’s platinum tresses may look completely different on you.

Carrie Underwood Hair

To achieve the Carrie Underwood look, start with lightly damp hair and using a small amount of mousse, distribute it evenly through your hair. You should blow-dry hair using a round brush, pulling two-inch sections of hair to the front and then rolling the ends under as you pull them in toward your face. For the finishing touch, use a little bit of pomade to define tiny wisps of hair along your face and gently mist you hair with shine spray. For added emphasis, Carrie Underwood hairstyles usually feature an extreme part to allow the smooth lines of the haircut to gracefully fall forward along her neckline.

American Idol Hairstyles

American Idol Hairstyles - Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood have taken the world by storm when it comes to hairstyles. With both women leading their careers with a bold look that their fans love, these two beauties are forces to be reckoned with. Here are a few pointers on the hairstyles they have been seen in.

American Idol Hairstyles - Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson has gone from a straight and medium hairstyle to wavy and long with different colors in between. For the straight and medium hairstyle she has worn just above the shoulders in 2007, simply use a straightening iron or a blow dryer with a round brush followed up by wax and smoothing shine to create the ideal sleek look. For the wavy medium hairstyles such as the one she wore to the 41st Country Music Awards, curling the hair all over in thick and loose curls then using spray gel and wax to hold the look will work. Simply run the fingers loosely through the curls for separation, and then spray on a layer of hairspray to hold.

American Idol Hairstyles - Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood has always worn a long and wavy or long and curly hairstyle since her first appearance on American Idol. The Idol scene has added so many possible looks to the industry since its start, it’s no wonder that some of the most popular females from the show have soared into fashion icons. Carrie’s flip ends on the long straight style she wore to the Grammy’s can be recreated by using large hot rollers and a blow dryer. Simply blow dry the hair straight after applying mousse and smoothing shine, then roll the ends in large hot rollers. Allow the rollers to cool, remove and run fingers through the curls. For the curly long hairstyle worn at the BMG after Grammy party, the half up and half down style Carrie wore went over well. Simply blow dry and use the curling iron to create the luxurious curls. The bump at the crown is made by teasing, and then pulling half of the front locks into a ponytail at the crown and securing.

There are different kinds of dye for this purpose; temporary, semi-permanent, demi-permanent and permanent.
Secondly, in the days leading to your hair dye, be sure to wash and condition your hair. You would want your hair to be well moisturized as dyeing dry hair can cause a lot of breakage.
