How to Style My Hair - 7 Tips to Hair Styling

Our hair is the most noticeable part of our body because it gives your face a distinct look depending on your hair style. We can easily change our looks by having a different hair style. How to style my hair? That is one of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to hair styling. Important reminders to remember when styling your hair are very simple and very easy to follow.

Tip 1

The first thing to do in styling your hair is to prepare the products that you will need in styling. You may need the following things: - pomade, hair dryer, flat iron, curl iron, mousse and round brushes (large and small ones).

Tip 2

You must know what type of hair style you want for your hair. Magazines and pictures of hair styles can be a big help.

Tip 3

The most effective time to start styling your hair is after taking a shower or after rinsing your hair. While your hair is still wet, it is very easy to style it because as you blow dry your hair it is more manageable.

Tip 4

If your aim is having straight hair, I recommended that you use a flat iron while brushing it with a round brush. The CHI is a very effective tool to use in straightening your hair.

Tip 5

While brushing your hair, don't forget to do it in an inward motion (twisting the brush inward/downward) to avoid frizzies and fly aways.

Tip 6

If your aim is something more stylish, you can use pomade or mousse to get the best results. Styling your hair in layers is very effective, it may take a little bit longer for you but it will have a good result based on the time you put into it. Styling by layers while applying pomade or mousse will create a layered effect on your hair. Do some small flips in your hair by doing this. It will create a natural effect on your hair style and it will make your look face younger.

Tip 7

Just in case you have curly hair, it is important that you shampoo your hair before starting to style it. Your hair will be smoother and softer which will be easier to style. In styling curly hair, you should follow the wave of your hair and do not force it into a style that it doesn't adapt to. Forcing it into a style that is won't adapt to will create a haggard or odd look. At first the hair may adapt but as it stays longer it will curl back into its desired way to be styled. The best way is to follow its natural curl and there are a lot of ways on how to do that.

How to style your hair is very easy but can sometimes seem complicated. It can seem complicated because if you don't style your hair naturally you won't get the look you desire.

If you ask someone, "How should I style my hair?" You could get many possible answers. Styling your hair is something natural, it depends on how you like it to look... and each individual has unique tastes. The best thing to do is to follow these tips and reminders and modify them with your own taste and desire.

Styling Tools - Best Styling Tools For Hair Styles

For most women and many men, styling our hair after a shower has become a daily ritual. Either as a necessity to dry or tame fly-away hair, or as part of a regimen to sculpt a "perfect look" - and styling tools have become part of the styling inventory.

Though styling tools and appliances come in a just a few "categories", their effect on hair styles is pretty substantial...short, long, medium, straight, curly, ethnic, thick or thin hair styles all benefit from styling with the right products for the job. Let's take a closer look...

Hair Brushes

Ah, the most common, yet most overlooked of the styling tools. Though some may not consider the brush - or comb - as a styling aid, it generally has the greatest impact on the style outcome. The type brush you select - round, paddle, flat - and its bristles can have a measurable impact on your hair.

A couple of considerations: Look for brushes with ceramic coating on the barrel and bristles. Ceramic coating holds up longer to heat, humidity and wear and tear. As bristles lose their coating, they create friction with follicles and tend to tear, strip or frizz hair. As we age, hair becomes more dry and brittle and brushes without adequate coating aggravate damage.

Bristles are usually stiff, soft, plastic or boar's hair. Though the stiffness and density of the brush is a matter of personal taste, staggered, stiff bristles work better with long and thick hair, whereas boar's hair provides increased manageability to fine or thin hair style. If possible, look for barrels with ceramic coating for heat distribution with thermal venting for faster drying (of your hair and the brush).

As a note, short hair styles work best with smaller barrels if you are using a round brush and narrower widths if using a paddle. Many stylists prefer small-width paddle designs for their increased flexibility and ease of use for short hair.

Hair Dryers

Probably the more critical, most often used, and easiest to operate, blow dryers & hair dryers have come a long way in the past few years. Many - at least the mores expensive ones - incorporate Tourmaline, ceramic and ionic drying technology to allow for smoother hair without threat of damage. Newest models offer "cold shot" switches that allow you to quickly blast cooler hair assisting setting your style. Separate heat and speed controls allow you to find an ideal setting for your style, thickness and hair type.

The biggest villain in drying is the most obvious - killing moisture in the follicles. Using the lowest setting possible helps reduce damage and ionic and tourmaline technology help infuse moisture into the cortex while eliminating static electricity. Today's hair dryer's are no longer only meant to dry wet hair, but are now used to add the requisite volume to the hair and the also control the frizz.

Flat Irons or Hair Straighteners

For long hair styles, flat irons have become the weapon of choice. Newer technology reduces frizzing and damage from over-heating and provide silky, smooth styling. Even those who prefer waves or curls, the flat iron is often the first step towards manageability. A couple of thoughts when considering a flat iron....one, Tourmaline and ceramic plates help protect the hair and distribute heat more evenly - avoiding hot spots that can burn and damage. Many have ionic generators which provide negative ions that smooth and soften while taming static electricity, fly-away and frizz.

The greatest concern with flat irons is heat damage. Ensure hair is dry and plates are clean of dirt, oil pr product build-up before using. Wet hair can steam and create significant damage. Look for models that have pre-select temperature settings, automatic shut-off.

Top 10 Hair Style Tips to Avoid a Bad Hair Day

No More Bad Hair Days!

If you ask most professional hair stylists they will tell you that less than 25% of the female population actually knows what face shape and skin tone they have. Knowing your face shape will allow you to pick the perfect hair cut. Knowing your skin tone will allow you to pick the perfect hair color. Most women know even less about how to style their hair.

Women are also confused when it comes to knowing what type of hair they have. They may have a lot of hair, which makes them think they have thick hair when in reality each individual strand of hair may be thin, coarse or wavy. This is the reason many women purchase and use the wrong hair styling products. If you've ever experienced a bad hair day check out this list of the top 10 reasons why they happen and vow to avoid all of them when creating your next hair styling moment.

Here are the ten top hair style mistakes hair professionals will tell you most women make:

1. Poor blow drying habits.

Just about every woman's hair can use some volume. Even hair that is poker straight will look better with some volume. The trick is in the blow drying. Don't blow dry your hair front to back- dry it back to front, lifting at the roots, bringing your hair up using a round brush. For even more volume use a vent brush. The blow dryer should be held at least 12 inches from your scalp, and keep it moving.

2. No protection.

If you use a blow dryer, curling iron, and/or electric curlers you should be using a thermal protector spray. With out it your hair is susceptible to damage from the high heat temperatures. Just spray your hair lightly and comb it throughout to distribute it evenly.

3. The wrong choice.

You would think that most women would know their hair type. But when it comes to picking the perfect products for their hair type most women don't have a clue. You may know that your hair is curly but is it a fine, coarse or medium texture? Is it color-treated, straight, wavy, or thinning? Do you need a thick gel or just some light mousse? If you are unsure of your exact hair type, ask your stylist. Perhaps you will need to combine two or more products to get the best results. It's not rocket science but it's close!

4. Too much of a good thing.

Even when they find the perfect product, most women use too much of it. When your hair stylist gives you the perfect hair cut for your hair, few styling products should be necessary. Your hair should fall into place naturally. No more than a dime size of product is usually necessary. You will need even less of serums or pomades as they are more concentrated. Weighting your hair down with too much product can make it look unwashed and it will become a dust magnet.

5. Flat iron flattening

Incorrect use of the flat iron is evident to most hairstylists. Many women forget the thermal spray that protects the hair shaft from the heat of a flat iron. After using the protection you should start by sectioning your hair into small sections almost as wide as the flat iron. Starting at the roots, slowly pull the iron down to silken and smooth the hair. When you come to the end of your hair you can choose to pull straight out, flip up or flip under.

6. Trying to style wet or damp hair.

Only hair that is completely dry will hold a hair style. If your hair takes a long time to blow dry you may want to wash it at night to avoid feeling rushed in the morning. Actually hair that has had time to recoup some of the oils that have been washed out will behave better. Once your hair is completely dry, apply any styling products you are using and continue to dry your hair on a low to medium setting. Then style.

7. Waiting too long in between hair cuts.

Ask any professional: A great hairstyle begins with a great hair cut. Some hair cuts will look great as they grow out, but if you like the hairstyle your wearing, get back to the hairstylist as soon as your hair begins to grown out. This could be anywhere between 4 to 8 weeks. This will help the stylist know just what look you want. Another good tip is when you get that perfect hairstyle or haircut, be sure to take a picture, one of the front, one of the back, and both sides, and bring them with you. This way the hairstylist will know exact what you want. Even if you want to grow your hair out, a trim of the spilt ends is very important. Frequent trims will cut the split end off before it can split the entire shaft of hair. This is important if you want a smooth and silky look to your hair.

8. Over styling.

Unless you're a runway model or someone who is embarking on one of life's most momentous occasions, like your wedding or prom, there is no need to go over board. Today's styles call for natural hair that moves and falls freely. This is achieved with the proper hairstyle that fits your hair type and the use of just the right hair styling products.

9. Under styling

Just the opposite of over styling are the millions of women who do nothing. Unless your hair is only a few inches long, it's not "wash and go". The right hair cut, a little blow drying and styling product can make all the difference in the world. Give it a try!

10. Pick the wrong hair style all together.

Most women choose a hair style that they see on someone else. What looks good on your favorite celebrity or co-worker may not be the hair style that fits your face shape or will work with your type of hair texture, be it wavy, curly, poker straight or thick and springy. Your hair stylist will know what your hair will and will not do, so it is best to bring several hair style pictures with you when visiting your hair stylist for a new hair cut.

Strengths Extensive Hair Styles Galleries, Ebook on hair advice, 1 year membership, Satisfaction Guaranteed, Very quick- find a new hair style in 5 minutes


Advertising and promotional material for this website focuses on uploading a photo and trying on various hair styles. When I first logged in to the members area, the first thing that got my attention was the incredible amounts of hair style photos for very short, short, medium, long and updo hair styles. An immediate sense of relaxation came over me. If I couldn't find a good hair style among the thousands, well then there there just wasn't any hope.

There is also an extra E-book included in the membership that is barely mentioned on the web site. This E-book is great! It is a list of hair care tips and advice from a top hair designer in England. It covers all sorts of topics, such as how to select a hair designer, how to select a new hair style, various styling tips and tricks and what to do when your home hair color didn't turn out so great. This E-book has valuable information that everyone can use. I read every page of it--almost 100 pages total.

Hair Style Galleries

I quickly browsed through all the galleries, looking at all the different hair styles with different hair colors, textures, volume and even highlights. There are no photos of men's hair styles, ethnic or african-american women hair styles. The photos are all optimized to load quickly, so there is no time wasted waiting for photos to load. If you find a photo that you like you can click on it to enlarge it and even print a copy to take to your hair stylist. Printing the updo photos are especially helpful if you are looking for prom, bridal or formal hair styles. There is also the option to save the hair style photos that you really like in your favorites so you can play a slide show of them later.

Hair Style Editor

After browsing all the hair style photos, I move on to the hair style editor part of the website where I am told I can upload a photo of myself and try on some hair styles. The instructions to upload are very straightforward and I upload a photo of myself within minutes (it might have even been seconds). The photo that you upload should be taken against a plain white background and you should probably pull back most of your hair so it doesn't hang in your face.

Once you have uploaded your photo, you enter the hair style editor where there are four tools at your disposal.

Color Palette - allows you to change the color of your chosen style

Mask Pad - allows you to mask the undesired details on your photo prior to trying on different hair styles. For example, you may want to remove long hair that appears in a photo or the background of the photo

Size Tool - allows you to modify the size and proportions of the hair style you select

Trash Tool - allows you to remove the modifications that you just made without having to start over

First, I masked my photo so that only my face shape was showing. By the way, this is a great way to figure out your face shape! The masking takes a little bit of expertise with the mouse. If you are switching categories, for example, going from medium hair styles to long hair styles, you must re-mask your face again. You can change the width of the mask tool to make it a little easier closer to the face. After masking, I went to the category selector which allows you to browse thru and try on hair styles in the five categories, very short, short, medium, long and updo hair styles.

Once you find a hair style you want to try on, you just click on it and drag it to your photo. It automatically loads. Then you can move it around a bit to make it fit right on your head. After you are done adjusting the size and color of the hair style, you can print it or save it as one of your favorites to view later. The photo that you get with the selected hair style is obviously computer-generated, but it does give you a glimpse of what the hair style would look like on you. For example, I have been wanting to add some bangs to my current hair style. When I tried on the hair style with bangs, it didn't look very good at all. I think I have decided to skip the full bangs for now and maybe go with just a few long whispy looking bangs.


Hair Styles Cuts and Dos is an immediate relief for anyone desperately looking for examples of any type of hair style. You can literally find a new hair style in 5 minutes!! The hair style editor is also a great tool to try on various hair styles and get an idea of how they will look on you. The extra E-book is full of tips and advice for hair, tons more than you would find in any magazine.

Typically a lot of women go and buy a bunch of magazines when they want to find a new hair style. If you consider the price of a magazine alone- between 3-5$-- and the fact that you don't always find the style you want in just one magazine, the price for admission at Hair Styles Cuts and Dos - currently $9.99 for a whole year ---is well worth it

Stellure is a relatively new site that offers hair imaging in three dimensions. It differentiates itself from other imaging programs because of the very realistic 3D aspect. Currently they have the first batch of 151 hair styles loaded in the system. They are adding a lifelike color tinting system soon and they have just negotiated a deal that will give them access to large volumes of top quality fashion and classic hairstyles. As more and more hairstyles are added, the membership prices will be going up. The best value at this time is the lifetime membership as it gives you the benefits of the increased catalogue at a much lower price. And, let's face it, examining your hair style and trying to find new ones is a lifelong activity.

The Hair Style Studio

Joining Stellure is quick, easy and secure. Depending on what type of membership you have selected, you can view hair styles on a stand in model or upload photos of yourself for Stellure to create your own 3D model to view hair styles. For the purposes of this review, we went with the customized 3D model. There are detailed instructions on the site for taking the photographs. You will need a front view and a side view. If you have scanner it is very easy to take a regular photo and scan it in for uploading. If you don't own a scanner, you could probably go to your local photo processing center and have it done for you.

Before you get started with the hairstyles, you are directed to the face shape wizard to help you determine which one your face fits into. The wizard loads very quickly and asks you several questions about the dimensions of your face. After you have answered everything, the wizard tells you your face shape. This is important information since all of the hairstyles come with descriptions that detail which face shape they are suited for. There is also a link to style advice in the members area to specific style advice for your face shape.

We opted for the Reflect membership where we would get our own customized 3D face model. We had two photographs taken of one of our staff members, one front view and one side view. Once we uploaded the two photos in the Stellure member area, we received an Email in less than 24 hours that the 3D model was ready. (They do state on the website that the 3D models will be finished in 48 hours or less). Once your 3D model is finished, you will get a list of recommended hair styles for your face shape and then you can go to the hair style studio to try them on.

To try on a hair style you simply click on the style and it will show up on your face model. You can set the face model to spin clockwise, counterclockwise or you can click on any of 12 different angles to view the hair style. The hair styles and face models are very realistic looking and the 3D view gives you a very good idea of what the selected hair style will look like from the back. The back view of a hair style is probably the most often ignored view of any hair style and the 3D spinning face model allows you to see the back from a very different perspective.

As you try on different hair styles, you can get styling information by selecting the small i on the menu, you can print the hair style and you can save it in your favourites to view later. When you print a hair style, you will get a front view, back view and a view from each side. The detailed description is included in the printout. Information such as suitable lengths, length descriptions, suitable densities, face shapes, trim period, texture description, styling instructions, maintenance level and styling time. These are all very important factors to consider when considering a new hair style. If a hair style you like requires 30 minutes to style every morning and you do not have that kind of time, then you will probably not be very happy with your results.

There is a search function that will allow you to search by category, face shape, hair density and hair length. Categories include: Latest, Classic, Glamour/Evening, Formal/Bridal, Easy Care and Updo. Face Shapes include Oval, Rectangle, Square, Round, Heart, Pear and Diamond. Hair Density includes Thin, Medium, Thick and Hair Length selections are Short, Medium and Long.

In addition to the hair style studio, you will receive a monthly newsletter that discusses the most current hair style fashion and how to get it. This is great info if you want your hair to be in fashion. And, if you can't find the hair style you are looking for, you can actually request it.


The fact that the technology used to develop the 3D Hair Style Studio at Stellure is patent pending says a lot about the high quality of the program. Most hair imaging programs offer just the front view of the hair style and Stellure offers a 3D look at selected hair styles with either a stand in model or your very own face model. It factors in your face shape information and offers suggestions for selecting a new hair style The results are very realistic and as more and more hair styles are added to the Hair Style Studio, this subscription based program will be the place to go if you want to find a new hair style and see how it will look on you.

Tighten Loose Body Skin With the Help of These Ingredients

Do you know the ingredients that you can use to tighten loose body skin? Do you know how these ingredients work to tighten loose body skin? If not, then you have come to the right place.

In this article, I will share with you the information about innovative ingredients, which can help you to tighten loose body skin effectively without any side effects.

Without much ado let us deep dive into these ingredients.

Not many people are aware of this ingredient. It is a patented ingredient, developed by a company in New Zealand. You will be surprised to know that the raw material used for this ingredient is the wool of a sheep specially raised for this purpose. This wool is a rich source of Keratin, Amino Acids, and Peptides.

A special process is used to extract CynergyTK from the wool, it is very effective in nourishing the skin cells, it delivers all the necessary minerals and vitamins to the skin cells and assists in boosting the natural production of collagen within the skin.

Higher collagen levels mean tighter, softer, and firmer skin.

Nano-Lipobelle H-EQ10
It is a special protein like structure, which delivers CoenzymeQ10 to every cell f the skin. It reaches deep up to seven layers of the skin and delivers nutrition. It makes skin cells healthier and assists in generation of new skin cells.

Avocado Oil
It is a natural emollient, which makes skin soft and smooth. It is derived from the fruit of Avocado tree and it creates a thin protective layer on the skin. It protects the skin from external dirt and grime and helps preserve the natural moisture of the skin.

Phytessence Wakame
Nature never seems to stop amusing me; this ingredient is an extract of the Japanese seaweed. It is a very effective anti oxidant. When used on skin, it helps in reducing the free radical activity inside the skin. Medical studies have proven that in presence of free radical activity, the collagen breakdown increases and therefore, skin sags quickly.

Phytessence Wakame reduces the free radical activity and hence contributes to preserve the existing collagen in the skin.

It is noteworthy here to mention that all these ingredients are derived from natural sources like Wool, Algae, Oil, and Proteins. Therefore, they do not have any side effects, they are safe and attack various root cause of the imperfection of the skin and tighten loose body skin.

You goal now is to get out there on the internet, do some research on natural products, and order products that can tighten loose body skin without any side effects.

Microdermabrasion to Reduce Fine Lines and Wrinkles, and More

Many a woe does a wrinkle bring as it is believed to be a harbinger of age catching up. The process of developing wrinkles and fine lines is further hastened by pollution and stress related factors. Nowadays there are several advanced skin procedures available to deal with these signs of aging but most of these are expensive or require surgery. Microdermabrasion to reduce fine lines and wrinkles is an effective skin care treatment method and has become quite popular as it is non-invasive and affordable, besides being extremely effective with no down time.

Advantages of Microdermabrasion

• The procedure does not require any kind of surgery
• It is less expensive than other popular methods of treating fine lines
• It leads to thorough improvement of skin
• It is a totally painless procedure
• A total facial microdermabrasion takes only 30 minutes
• There is no recovery period involved and one can return to normal activities immediately
• Can be repeated any number of times as a part of maintenance procedure

Why Microdermabrasion Is So Effective?

As we age, the ability of the cell to renew itself becomes less and takes longer than younger skin. Due to this a layer of dead skin forms and makes the face look dull and tired. Fine lines and wrinkles set in due to the reduced elasticity of the skin. Microdermabrasion procedure exfoliates the top dead layer of skin and exposes new and younger looking skin. The skin renewal process is also speeded up giving the face a naturally younger look. After a few sessions one can see that the fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, and pigmentation gradually diminish as the old skin is replaced by new skin.

Microdermabrasion to improve the overall skin appearance is a very safe and effective procedure and is suitable for most skins. There is no risk factor involved as there is no surgery required. There is no downtime and the procedure can be done during lunch break. With microdermabrasion, you can have young and clear looking skin in no time.

Things That Cause Premature Skin Aging - Avoid Sun to Prevent Aging of the Skin

Are you wondering why your skin looks old even though you are not that old? Want to find out about the things that cause premature skin aging? Then make sure to read this article!

It will inform you about the most common things that are responsible for premature aging of human skin. You should avoid them if you want your skin to look youthful and beautiful for as long as possible!

Basically, there are three (3) things that can significantly accelerate the aging of your skin. This is in case you are (overly) exposed to them. Anyways, here they are:

  • sun,
  • smoking,
  • having dry skin.

Of course, there are also other factors that also affect the aging of your skin. But in general, these seems to be most problematic.

Sun Can Cause Premature Skin Aging

The first factor that will cause your skin to age faster than it should is the sun. To be more specific, especially dangerous are sun rays known as UVA and UVB light.

If you get exposed to these for at least a couple of minutes every day without protecting yourself and your skin with sunscreen, your skin will definitely suffer from premature aging!

With that said, I suggest you to wear sunscreen on your skin every minute you spend on the sun. This goes for winter times too! Do not think for a second that sun in the winter is not able to hurt your skin, because it can and it will!

Since sun is indeed stronger during the summer then it is in winter, you should wear sunscreen during the summer even if it is cloudy outside.

What a Body Cream Should Be

It is a sign that you are healthy if you feel good inside. You may have a positive outlook in life and your mind power is doing well, too. Besides your inner health, your outer features also show how healthy you are and your skin is the big proof that you are far from acquiring any negative health conditions.

Your inner health may depend on it but your outer body can become healthily glowing by applying body cream for instance, which can moisturize your skin. Using that kind of product could be just a sign of vanity but it is also a necessity to improve the condition of your skin.

Skin and facial care is necessary especially for women. You can consider many other products as your basic needs. They should be your daily partners just before you have your breakfast and before going to bed. In that way, you can assure yourself that your skin will not be totally dry and sagged. Those creams will not just protect your skin from absorbing free radicals present in your surroundings, but will also restore the lost nutrients due to the external factors that make your skin unhealthy.

A body cream with a heavenly scent is a factor that attracts consumers to try the skin product. Scented creams, however, are not good for your skin, because the fragrance ingredient can carry a chemical compound and that is the last thing you should be applying to your skin. You may also try those creams that have relaxing scent as they could help you have a good sleep, but it is best to adhere to fragrance-free creams to play safe. After all, it is your skin and you want the best treatment for it.

Always look for creams that do not contain toxic ingredients. Non-greasy creams are also highly recommended. Little or no alcohol at all is undoubtedly safer, too. Your best choice will be to look for a cream with organic and natural ingredients because that can nourish your skin. They provide natural vitamins and antioxidants that could keep your outer body vibrantly beautiful.
