Hairstyles are a way of creating a statement. A person's hairstyle can tell you a lot about their image and personality. Hairstyles are also an essential part of first impressions.
"If you keep your hair neat and presentable people will look past preconceived notions of urban hairstyles."
A number of people determine how they feel about themselves based on their appearance and hairstyles. Often when people are having what they call "a bad hair day" they feel less confident and more self conscious. In most scenarios hairstyles can create perceptions and images in people minds.
"Your hair is an expression of who you really are, especially in the African American culture because in America you are your hair because of the stereotypes."
A hairstyle can not determine a person's character, integrity or make a person whole and secure. However, a hairstyle has great significance because it is a symbol and representation of the individual.
Hey guys, come along with us to the salon where she gets layers cut for the first time!
Look at her fun new haircut. She has had her hair cut more dramatically short (to her shoulders) in the past , but she has never had layers!
She is loving her fresh new cut and it looks so stylish and cute down (straight or curled.) But FYI... layers do make your hair more difficult to braid (since you will have shorter hair mixed in with longer pieces.) If any of you are thinking of doing the same type of cut but still want to be able to wear your hair up, I would suggest asking for "long layers" which
is what she got.
While it will be more difficult, she should still be able to do most braids, ponytails, buns, etc, since her layers don't start up super high on her head.
This Tinkerbell hair is inspired by the hairstyle worn on Disney's fairy Tinker Bell in the movie Peter Pan! A cute messy bun or "top knot" wrapped with ribbon and side swept bangs. Of course,we all know many of you don't have bangs so we made some "fake bangs" using her own hair!
We have always loved Disney hairstyle. We have loved watching Disney movies and think Tinker Bell would be such a fun character to dress up,for your next trip to Disneyland, Disneyworld, or Disney birthday party. This hairstyle would look great with a Tinker Bell fairy costume!
Combined a lace feather braid with a new knotting technique to create a gorgeous and unique braided half up hairstyle for long and medium length hair.
We're loving the intricate look of this squiggle braid! I could see this working as a bridal hairstyle or for many other special occasions (Prom, Homecoming, recitals, communions, etc.) The knotted lace or woven lattice pattern reminds me of something you would see on a medieval princess or at a renaissance fair!
This style is surprisingly easier than it looks and fairly quick to make (after you get the knot tying technique down) and should hold up decently well since it is secured with braids on both the top and bottom of the delicate knots.
2 small, clear, hair elastics,
Pomade, gel, serum, or other hair product to help control flyaways.
The trick to getting this pattern to look nice is tying all of the knots the same way (as shown in video above) and using hair product before you start to keep things smooth and neat.
You'll love this beautiful side pull-through braid style with braided rose accents! This hairstyle may even be easy enough to do on yourself as a Homecoming or Prom hairstyle! We know many of you will be going to the Homecoming dance in the near future, so we thought it would be fun to do a formal hairstyle.
Fallen in love with the look of the ever popular pull through braid and especially love it swept loosely to the side with the edges stretched out voluminously.You can add as many braided roses as you wish. If you wanted even more glam, you could incorporate jewels, other hair jewelry, or accessories to the finished braid, or in the center of your rosettes.
This hairstyle turned out so beautiful and would look stunning with a fancy Homecoming dress, for the Prom, or other formal events such as a wedding (for the bride, bridesmaids, flower girls or guests.) Although this style is quite simple, I think it is really gorgeous and would stay in place through lots of dancing and look great in photos!
Several small or medium size, clear elastics. (The amount will depend on your hair length and thickness of sections.)
Bobby pins. We prefer using miniature pins (affiliate) when we are creating the rosettes as they are easier to hide.
Finishing hair spray.
This style will work best with long hair, or at least medium length. If your hair is on the shorter side, you could possibly opt for a half up variation of the style.
Hope you enjoy!
