Medium-Length Hairstyles for Different Faces

Medium-Length Hairstyles for Different Faces - Summer Fall 2010 Edition

Medium-length hairstyles are some of the most flattering hairstyles around. They are also some of the most popular. They have all the appeal and femininity of long hairstyles, but they are as easy to maintain and style as short hairstyles. There are hundreds of ways to wear a medium-length hairstyle. But if you want to find the very best hairstyle for you, then you need to wear something that is suitable for your facial shape. If you don't know what your face shape is, pull your hair back and use a pencil liner or an old lipstick and draw the outline of your face as it is reflected in the mirror.

If you have a square face, then you need to soften the strong jaw line. For square faces, wear lots of layers and avoid styles that are all one length. You should also avoid blunt cut bangs and go for rounded cuts. Layers that start at the jawline are ideal. A long or oblong face needs to widen the face but minimize the length. Wearing curly or wavy styles are ideal and bangs will help make your face appear shorter. If you don't like to wear bangs, then shift your part to the side in order to make your face wider but avoid a middle parting.

A round face needs to have the outline broken up. Show off your forehead to make your face appear longer and tuck hair behind the ears. Layers around the face make you seem rounder. Long layers help lengthen the face, but avoid curls since they make you look wider. If you have a heart shaped face you want to make your face longer and wider around the chin. Go for height and volume. A long, sweeping bang and layers below the chin are good ideas. Those who have oval faces can wear nearly any style. Sharper lines, asymmetrical shapes, and lots of layers will look great with an oval face but wear your hair away from your face so people see you.

How to Cure Dandruff

How to Cure Dandruff

It seems as though it is pretty pointless to get a cute haircut and spend time styling your hair when you have a dandruff problem. Dandruff is caused by excessive oiliness of the scalp, and can become increasingly serious. Many of us will notice the appearance of dandruff when we experience a change in the weather, or during any occurrence which makes our skin oilier.
If you want to prevent dandruff, you can do so by ingesting more essentially fatty acids such as nuts and oils. Additionally, staying hydrated by drinking lots of water in conjunction with eating health vegetables and fruits will also prevent the onset of dandruff.

If your dandruff problem is very severe, you may want to try out the following remedies:

1. Avoid dry weather and excessive showering in hot water.

2. You don’t want to leave a hat or pony tail on your head all day. This will lead to excessive buildup of oil on the scalp and will cause it to get itchy.

3. Use a shampoo made for sensitive skin, and always use conditioner. You may even want to consider a leave-in conditioner or oil to cure an excessively dry scalp.
We all know that dandruff can be both annoying and unsightly. The good news is that dandruff is 100 percent treatable. By following these simple remedies, you can avoid dandruff and rock that edgy, new haircut you’ve always wanted. You can also begin to wear dark shirts again without worrying about the visible white flakes showering your shoulders.

Ashley Greene is an American TV and movie actress. She started off as a model, but discovered that she much preferred acting when she starred in some television commercials. She has appeared in such popular television shows as “Punk'd” and “Crossing Jordan” but her biggest claim to fame is as Alice Cullen on the hit movie series “Twilight.” Since she played in “Twilight” she has received several more roles for movies that are sure to be big hits.

She easily adapts to her roles, while always maintaining a sense of style that is all her own. For her role in the movie series, “Twilight” Ashley wore her hair medium-length and shaggy. She has lots of layers in her hair, and her bangs are cut short with a razor, which adds a lot of texture to her hair. Her hair flares out around the sides and this is actually accomplished with pomade. The pomade is used to build texture and then the hair is ruffled and the ends flicked out.

This style looks good on almost anyone so if you want to make Alice Cullen's style your own you can easily do so. The style will probably not work very well on long hair, but medium and short hair will work fine. To get this style, you really should go to a professional stylist because razors can damage your hair if not used correctly and a stylist can show you how to properly use pomade and how to style your hair. Have your hair cut in lots of layers and your bangs razored short, then use pomade to flip the ends out just like from the “Twilight” movies.

Side Bun Hairstyles for Prom

Side Bun Hairstyles for Prom 2010

Prom is one of the most important days of a teen girl's life. Many teenagers spend days or even weeks looking for the best dress, shoes, bag, makeup, and hairstyle for their prom. There are lots of styles to choose from, and one of the best styles is the side bun. This unique style is appropriate for any event and can be styled to look more retro or modern. The side bun is an elegant and classy style that can be created using straight, wavy, or curly hair no matter what length the hair is.

On short hairstyles the side bun is actually a faux bun but it still looks gorgeous on sleek straight hair with either side swept or straight bangs. It also looks good on curly hair. Make sure that you comb and gather the hair on one side of the head around the nape of the neck, pin it close the scalp to make a faux messy bun and use extra hold hair spray. For longer hair, pull into a side ponytail and then part it in two. Twist the sections around and pin in place with bobby pins. Bangs can be worn as you normally do or use hair gel to comb them sideways close to your scalp.

Use accessories or hair jewelry to add more glamor to you look. It won't take long to make this style of hair, and you can use some shine spray and smoothing serum to keep your hair smooth and shiny. Many celebrities such as Selena Gomez and Audrina Patridge wear side buns and these are good celebrities to look to for ideas about how to wear your hair.

How to Get Justin Bieber Haircut Style

How to Get Justin Bieber Haircut Style

Currently, Justin Bieber’s haircut is all the range for young, teenage boys. This haircut, adequately named the “Fringe” cut, is cut shorter in the back and left longer in the front. The cut is very heavy on the top and is made complete with long layers. Basically, it’s a short haircut with really long bangs.
Justin Bieber Haircut Style

If you’re looking for a new haircut, and you want to try something new and popular, you may want to try out a Justin Bieber inspired cut. However, many people don’t want to admit that they are modeling their hair after a particular celebrity. Therefore, you can simply tell your stylist that you want some variation of the “fringe” cut, and you will get what you ask for!
Some of the specifics of a true fringe cut is that the hair is cut on a front angle. This gives the appearance of a part, without actually parting the hair. The hair is then pushed forward over your eyes, and can be kept in place using a pomade product or a spray. If your hair is extremely thick, the spray may be enough to keep in place. For thin hair, texturizing products such as pomade and hair gel can be particularly beneficial.

Lastly, the fringe cut isn’t just for boys! Many girls are getting Bieber inspired haircuts which give them a slight andro-edge. This look is perfect for the girl who wants a short hairscut but doesn’t want to get a trim that is “too old” for her style.

Paris Hilton Ponytail Hairstyle

Paris Hilton Ponytail Hairstyle

The ponytail
is a hairstyle that has been around for probably as long as there has been long hair. This easy style is simple and fast to do and looks very pretty on most women (and those men who enjoy having long hair.) Unfortunately, for a long time the ponytail fell out of favor, despite the fact that there is so much that can be done with it. Ribbons, beads, and other accessories can easily be added to a ponytail. Headbands can bring a who new look to the simple ponytail and even where it is worn – high, low, or in the middle – can make a difference in the overall appearance of the hairstyle.

Many women are trying to avoid wearing the ponytail because it's somehow seen as “mom hair,” a style to be dreaded and avoided at all costs. So what if it's fast, easy, and looks great and you are attempting to get yourself and your entire family out the door in five minutes flat? Some women who love ponytails are avoiding them because of this odd stigma, even though the style suits their lifestyle and they love it. Thankfully, the ponytail was spotted on fashion runways and is very much in style this spring and summer!

Paris Hilton also enjoys wearing a ponytail, so now many more women are embracing this lovely style again. Paris wears her ponytail low and casual. Smoothing serum can help you to control any frizzing and as long as you keep your hair conditioned and trim away any split ends your hair will look fantastic. Paris parts her hair in the middle and then pulls it back, accenting with a colorful headband across the front. If you have a wide forehead, keep your bangs loose and you'll appear thinner and more feminine. Paris looks beautiful in this simple style, so give it a go!

Big and Sexy 2010 Summer Hairstyles

Big and Sexy 2010 Summer Hairstyles

Big hair
– that is, hair that has lots of volume – is all the rage for summer 2010. When you decide to wear your hair big and bouncy, make sure that you can run your fingers through your hair. You should have lots of volume, not a helmet like in the '80s. The secret to making big hair look great this summer is to finish your style in a way that won't look exaggerated. You need to make sure that the kind of volume you create suits your hair texture as well as the shape of your face.

You need to prep your hair, and it's best to use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. If you have fine hair use a protein based product and it will appear fuller. Blow-dry your hair a section at a time with a round brush; keep in mind that the bigger the barrel the bigger the hair. If your hair is short, add texture and lift. A rat tail comb and strong hairspray will let you tease your hair as big as you want or you can simply use a good texturizing product on day-old hair for a mussed look.

A bouncy, voluminous blow-dry works great on medium hair, but make sure your hair can swing and move. A rounded shape works the best as long as there is a smooth and shiny finish. If you aren't careful, a long hairstyle will look limp, so make sure you use volumizing shampoo and conditioner and tease lightly at the crown, right after you blow-dry. You can also crimp the bottom layers which will help make a cushion for the rest of your hair to sit on.
