How to Put on Your Hair Extensions …未命名-3

Many women wish for hair that is fuller and longer .Luckily, today we can achieve that in a matter of minutes with hair extensions. If you have never tried hair extensions you might feel a little intimidated by the idea of adding luscious locks. Don’t worry, putting on and caring for hair extensions isn’t as hard as it seems.

START AT THE BACK

To put extensions in you will want to start by sectioning off the hair at the nape of your neck.Section off the hair from ear to ear. If you have fine hair, you might want to tease your hair at the base to give the extensions a little something more to hold on to. Put a medium clip in here.

MOVE UP

Come up above your ears and section off again. This will be right above your ears along the widest part of your head, so be sure to use your wide set of extensions here. Again, tease the base of your hair if you are worried about them falling out.未命名-5

NEXT PIECE

You should have one more wide section of extensions. This one will go just under the crown of your head. Section off the hair and clip in. I’ve noticed it is best to start by attaching the center clip in place first and then doing the sides.

CREATE MORE SIDE PIECES

  • Some beauty experts suggest cutting down a larger section of hair extensions to create side pieces.
  • Then cut between the clips to create smaller sections that are perfect for adding length and #body to the side of your head.未命名-4

ADD THE SIDES

It is important to remember when you are clipping in the side pieces that you place them a little further back, but not too far. You still want to add fullness to the front, but you don’t want them to be easily detected by someone else. Also be sure to add the same number of pieces to each side of your head and in roughly the same places so one side isn’t fuller than the other.

STORE THEM CORRECTLY

  • When you take your extension out of your hair, you want to make sure you store them correctly.
  • The better care you take now, the longer they will last. Don’t just throw them in a drawer or your bag. Gather all the pieces together and brush them out. Gather them together at the base with a hair tie and then twist the length loosely together. Fold them up and gently place them in the box or container they came in.

PREVENT TANGLES

Chances are your hair is slightly damaged. It’s not as smooth and silky as your extensions. When you wear extensions, your hair rubs against the extension creating friction and causing tangles. Keep a small brush with you and brush through the tangles as often as possible.巴西发帘72890

STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:未命名-2_副本

  1. Create a part on the right side. You can find out how to style curly hair here.
  2. Start your braid next to your part. Take a small section of hair and split it into three. We’re doing a Dutch braid which means you cross the left section under the middle, then the right under the left. Add some hair to the next section and cross that under the middle.
  3. Continue the Dutch braid to your temple. Follow your hairline , adding in hair to both sides of your braid until just above your ear.
  4. Finish in a normal braid. Curve your braid around and stopping adding in hair to finish in a normal braid (plait).

  6. As always, I like to stretch out the braid a little, but that’s it!

STYLING TIPS

  • I like to work with my curls when creating styles in my naturally curly hair. What I mean is that I add in sections to the braid depending on the size and shape of my curls. If you break up a curl it makes your hair frizz so add in whole curls wherever possible.
  • If your hair is really thick, this half braid tutorial would work really well in your hair. However, if you’re not you can add some hair extensions!双色发72890

How to Get Nina Dobrev’s Golden Globes Hair

How to Get Nina Dobrev’s Golden Globes Hair未命名-1

Riawna Capri created Nina’s soft, gorgeous updo for the 2016 Golden Globes. Below, we give you the details from Riawna Capri on how to achieve this style at home.

Riawna and Nina both wanted to create an effortless, not-too-perfect, whimsical updo with lots of twists, knots, and braids involved. Here’s the step-by-step how-to on Nina’s hair:未命名-2

  1. Start with dry hair and spray all over the hair to protect it from the use of hot styling tools.
  2. Then, curl the entire head with a 3/4 inch curling iron. Loosen up the curls by running the fingers through the hair and add some texture with spray .
  3. Next, create an inside out French braid with the hair on each side of the head from the temple on down. It’s more difficult to see braids on brunettes compared to blondes, so an inside-out French braid is perfect for that extra pop!
  4. Tie a rubber band at the bottom of the braid and wrap it under so it almost resembles a snail shell, then pin it into place. Fatten the braid with unite dust and gently pull it apart.
  5. Grab pieces of the remaining center section of the hair, twist it, knot it, and pin it in place. The idea is to create fullness in the hair, but with more of a lived-in look, so be sure to leave some ends of the hair sticking out.
  6. Lastly, remove the duck bill clips and connect the top part of the hair with the bottom section so the updo looks blended and uniform. The sections should all melt together at this stage. Lock the hair into place with spray and then use glossing spray to soften the hair and add shine for the perfect elegant updo.72890

How To Dry Your Hair Weaves

How To Dry Your Hair Weaves 

Drying your hair weaves is an important part of your daily aftercare routine, and it is therefore essential that you understand how to dry your hair weaves properly to keep them in perfect condition.未命名-1

LET THEM DRY NATURALLY

  • Easier said than done, especially if we’re talking about non-removable hair pieces, but since this is what hair stylists always suggest when asked to reveal a few secrets on how to care for hair weaves, sticking with the “A stitch in time saves nine” proverb might not be such a bad idea.
  • Pros often stress how detrimental excessive heat is to hair weaves and, since I’m sure you’re using it to style yours, laying off and giving poor hair a break may be in order.
  • Furthermore, being 30 minutes early when it comes to washing your hair and letting it dry fully will save you at least as much time in the morning as you won’t have to deal with tangles and odd creases resulting of sleeping with semi-wet hair.53a051b70e7df_-_cos-girl-blow-drying-hair-l1pnwm-xl

BLOW DRY CAREFULLY

  • In case you’re not into proverbs and believe the only thing an early bird can hope for is a set of gravity-abiding eyelids, you can at least make room in your routine for one cool blow drying tip.
  • Use a low-heat setting to dry bonds and surrounding hair first then style/dry the rest of your hair as usual.
  • See?It’s quite simple, it won’t make your life complicated and you’ll still get to use your blow dryer with the only difference being the fact that you’re not applying excessive heat to this highly stressed area thus visibly reducing shedding, breakage and the possibility of your bonds getting all sticky.blow-out-hair

How To Dry Prebonded Glue Hair Extensions Correctly

  • If you have prebonded glue hair extensions the advice for drying your hair is very similar to the micro ring and nano ring hair extensions, with a few small changes.
  • Firstly, unlike micro ring hair extensions you will not be able to air dry your hair extensions, as this can cause the bonds to become soft and tacky if left damp for too long.  You will need to dry your hair extensions relatively soon after you have washed them, however can still follow all of the advice above regarding brushing your hair extensions after the shower, separating the bonds and applying a hair oil.
  • With prebonded glue extensions you will also need to ensure your hair dryer is not directed towards the bonds for long periods of time, as the heat can cause the glue to begin to melt.  Using the lowest setting or even a cool setting on your bonds is best practise here.双色发72890

VOLUMINOUS NATURAL CURLS-Chanel Iman

The ’70s are back—we have the rust-colored nail-polish trend to prove it—and Iman’s curls have a groovy Studio 54 vibe. To nail the glam disco-queen look, it’s important to concentrate the majority of the volume from midlength to ends. “If you put volume up top, it’s going to look ’80s,” says hairstylist Orlando Pita

UN-STRAIGHT HAIR-Olivia Palermo

It’s not exactly wavy, but it definitely hasn’t been flatironed into oblivion, either. Meet un-straight, the texture that says “I just happen to look this amazing, even though I put in minimal effort.” A middle part, slight bends that begin just below ear level, and piece-y definition create undeniable model-off-duty feel. Hairstylist Kerrie Urban’s technique for getting these non-curls: Flatiron two-inch sections of hair and “tilt the iron away or toward you haphazardly, so it looks a bit messy. It gives hair bend instead of curl.”、

FULL BANGS

Wispy bangs have their place, but thick fringe (think Bettie Page meets Veronica from the Archie comics) emanates edginess. Paired with ever so slightly tousled strands as they are here, full bangs are surprisingly grown-up and cool. But they don’t necessarily work on everyone: “They might look a little childish with a short cut,” says Annie Rush, a hairstylist at Eva Scrivo salon in New York City, who recommends a sideswept look as a short-hair alternative.

OLD-HOLLYWOOD WAVES-Beyoncébest-haircuts-long-beyonce

Let’s be real: Beyoncé looks amazing with any hairstyle. That’s probably why she changes up her look so often. But this modern take on old-school glam is something anyone can pull off. The length, shape of the curls, and added texture keep things current.

BEACHY WAVES-Shay Mitchell

Beachy waves can work on medium and short hair, but true mermaid hair (as all Disney fans and marine biologists know) requires lots of length. With long hair, you’re free to build even more texture. “The length allows you to concentrate the messier portion of hair further down, away from the face,” says Rush. “So no matter how disheveled it gets, the final result still looks put-together.”

BOUNCY BLOWOUT-Hannah Davis

Simply put, this is a look you can’t really achieve with short hair. The model’s voluminous curls would quickly turn straight on shorter hair, taking away from its sophisticated glam. Because the waves are concentrated below her chin, Davis’s bouncy blowout looks easygoing rather than stiff or formal.Ad728_90

6 Essential Summer Hair Care Tips

6 Essential Summer Hair Care Tips未命名-2

Summer can be harsh on the hair, with the intense heat, extended time in the sun, and the various activities, such as swimming, that can damage hair. Paying attention to hair care helps prevent damage, and can improve the overall health of the hair. A regular regimen that includes protecting and nourishing the hair and scalp, reduces the risk of issues like breakage, brittle hair, color changes, and frizz. Individuals just need to choose a regimen and keep to it for the whole summer.

Trim Hair Regularly

A quick trim with a clean pair of scissors at the beginning of summer removes any split ends that may worsen with the conditions that summer brings. Removing an inch or 2 is all that is necessary to improve the overall health of hair. It is also a good idea to do another trim at the end of the summer to remove any split ends prior to the cold, dry winter weather.piggy-chops

Protect Tresses from the Sun

Just like the skin, hair needs protection from the sun. There are UV hair products that help with this, such as leave-in conditioner and heat-protection sprays. It is important to read the product labels carefully to find products with adequate SPF. If shoppers cannot find these products, a scarf or a hat is helpful to protect both the hair and the scalp from UV ray damage.

Wash Hair After Outdoor Fun

After working out, spending hours in the sun, or swimming, it is advisable to wash the hair in order to remove pool chemicals, lake and ocean debris, oils, sweat, and dirt. This helps to prevent buildup, and it removes chemicals that may damage and dry out the hair, such as chlorine. It is best to use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to help tame frizz, and give the locks a little extra hydration.Alina-Artz

Prepare Hair for the Pool

The hair is like a sponge, and people want their hair to absorb as little ocean, lake, and pool water as possible. Swimmers should wet their hair prior to entering the water so it absorbs less. Many pools have showers or rinse off sprayers for this purpose. Alternatively, it is easy take a quick shower at home before heading out for a day at the pool or beach. Swimmers can add a little leave-in conditioner for extra protection.

Put Styling Tools in Hibernation

It is a good idea to take advantage of natural hair during the summer months and put the styling tools away. Heat styling strips natural oils from hair, which leads to hair drying out and being prone to breakage. It is best to allow the hair to air dry, using a little texture cream or spray to achieve a natural, beach look. If individuals must style their hair, they should keep it to a minimum and use the lowest heat setting on the styling tools. They should always make sure to use a heat-protecting spray prior to using heating tools, in order to protect the hair.

Deep Condition Hair Regularly

Pool chemicals, salt from the ocean, regular styling, and sun damage wreak havoc on the hair. A deep conditioning treatment helps to restore lost moisture to improve health and body. There are multiple options for deep conditioning, including pre-made conditioners and natural homemade ones.双色发72890
