Mens cuts!

short trends!!

Hayley Louise Constantine's insight:

If you have a thick or thin head of hair, both can benefit from a short textured hairstyle. Texturing the hair usually involves a straightedge razor or a pair of thinning scissors. Communicate with your hairstylist or barber about using one of these methods to create dimension in your hair. For thick and unruly hair, texturizing will help to eliminate bulk, allowing your hair to gain shape more easily, rather than being weighed down. For thinning or fine hair, texturizing helps create volume and movement, giving the appearance of a fuller head of hair. Finish the look by styling with a wax (for thicker hair) or pomade (for finer hair). Be sure to disperse the product evenly through the palms of your hand before working through the hair for even application. You will simultaneously look clean cut and stylish.

How 2 chalk your hair!!!


Hayley Louise Constantine's insight:

How To... Get Into The Latest Hair Color Craze!Hair chalking is an easy, quick and inexpensive way to add temporary color to your hair. You can do it yourself without making a big commitment.

David John, master stylist and colorist at the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon in Los Angeles, offers these hair chalking tips.

Step 1: Buy your chalk

John says that you can buy inexpensive non-oil-based pastels at Michael's for $5 or spend $60 if you really want to splurge. All you need other than the chalk is a water bottle, protective gloves, towels and a flat iron.


Step 2: Prep your hair

Make sure to wet the hair first so the color will attach to it. However if you’re blonde, do not wet the hair before chalking unless you want the color to stay in longer.


Step 3: Add the color

Apply to the chalk to the strand of hair in a downward motion, twist the hair as you chalk. You can try for a fun ombre look, or just do a couple strands.



Step 4: Let it dry

While John says that you can blowdry your hair, others recommend air drying so that you don't blow off the chalk.


Step 5: Set the color

Seal the color in with a flat iron or a curling iron to add waves. Apply hair spray as a final step.

 Step 6: Wash it out when you are ready

The color generally will only last one shampoo; however, if the hair is more porous, such as color-treated blonde hair, it can last a couple shampoos. You can use a clarifying shampoo or dish soap to remove the color more quickly -- both have more detergent. Don’t use dish soap on your whole head, just on the strands that have been colored.
