As everyone has already reported on the Spring trends (that seem to be in for the past 3 years: bright colors, some trend picked out of the 80’s and mixed prints), we decided to focus on those all important feature: our hair! Sorry short tresses are not in vogue this time ( I cry everyday looking in the mirror at my shoulder length hair).  Volume is back and just like nude as the neutral sojourned  from the 70’s so did this hapless hairstyles- Is someone actually wearing a Beehive?

1. Volume

Think coif and a whole lot of hair spray! This hairstyle is more sculptural than the one’s in the past since it combines folding, pinning, and density. No teasing here! The idea is to pull most of your hair on top of your hair and pin!

The Beehive? Really?

If you actually want to go all the way back to the 1960’s, try the coif. Here is Elle Canada’s tips to getting the coif:

Get the look: Dig out your hot roller or Velcro rollers. You’ll need large rollers as the rollers are used to add volume, not to create curl. Work in some volumizing mousse focusing the product at the crown and working and remaining product down the hair shaft. With hair moist from mousse, add rollers working from the front to back. Then heat each roller using your blow dryer on its highest heat mode to help set the rollers. Let cool, pull out rollers and brush back hair. Backcomb your hair, using a working hairspray as you tease, to create volume at the crown and then brush hair back with a paddle brush to smooth out the style. Finish with an extra-strong hold hairspray.

2. Curls Curls Curls and more curls

If I tried to curl my hair it would probably be a frizzy mess! Great thing that is exactly the way its suppose to look. Yep, messy, natural and curly (abate very faint).

Faint curls

Get the Look:

1. Prep damp hair with any anti-frizz or smoothing cream for sleek smoothness and to prevent frizz. Use a fine-tooth comb to create a strong part of the left side of the head.

2. Scrunch a Styling Foam into damp hair and massage into roots for volume and shine. Blow hair dry with a large ceramic round brush, curling ends under.

3. Pin top section of hair up with a large clip so sides are free for curling. Use a large-barrel curling iron on one-inch sections of hair at a time, working from the bottom up. Use a 1/4 inch barrel for short hair.

4. Remove pin from top section and curl as done on the sides.

5. Sprinkle a glossing spray from roots to ends and rake hands through hair to create texture and loose roughness to waves.

6. Finish with a mist of l Hair Spray for light hold and pull ends forward to rest on shoulders or neck.

Enjoy your new hair styles! If you try these looks, please post your comments below and if you have pictures we will post it on our next post!

Everything has its own trend these day. When we think of trendy, we think clothes, shoes and accessories but what about hair? Yes, hair too can be trendy and we saw various styles hitting the runway this fall. This fall its all about faking short hair and having it too!! So fake a bob or a multicolored bun !

A slick twist, and a knot have us swooning over this simple hairstyle. Plus its low maintenance so all you need is a small twist band, a light condition and some upper body strength (wow, that was a workout).

It may look like a bob but its not!! This optical illusion allows those lucky enough to have serious locks to look like the majority. To create the sleek bob seen at Behnaz Sarafpour, first mist hairspray over your strands and divide into top and bottom. Tease and back-comb the hair at the nape of your neck. Next, create a base by twisting hair into a low ponytail, wrapping under, and pinning in place. Let down the top portion and flatiron, then curl under and attach to the base. Alot of work but worth it, for a trouble free hairdo!!

Of course, I won’t forget about us short hair gals ( I am a card carrying member;). We have some options to change our look as well. A simple deep side part can do wonders for your face or a slick back look like the one below.

Of course, if you want a serious change;  go for choppy layers! It frames the face, highlights bone structure and gives you an edgy appeal.

Whatever you choose, there is a style for everyone and now if you can’t afford this fall’s wardrobe (although we have some great alternatives); you can still be on trend.
