Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 31


 

Jul. 31

 
If you have a heart-shaped face, you could bring focus to your eyes by wearing sideswept bangs, a fringe on your brow or long layers at the top.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 30


 

Jul. 30

 
Do not use too much shampoo to wash your hair. Just a dollop the size of a quarter will do.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 29


 

Jul. 29

 
Let’s talk layers! Layers should act as arrows that accentuate the best features of your face, such as the eyes, the lips or the cheekbones.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 28


 

Jul. 28

 
Try to use a nozzle attachment when you blow-dry. It will direct the heat where you need it most, and act as a buffer between the tool and your tresses.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 27


 

Jul. 27

 
If you have normal hair, gels and creams will add shine without weight. First, it’s necessary to pour the product in your palm. Rub your hands together, and then lightly pat over strands.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 26


 

Jul. 26

 
Try a short style! You’ll be able to keep your mane healthier, maintained and once you can master your ‘do, it will take minutes instead of hours to style.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 25


 

Jul. 25

 
Getting too many tangles? Try combing through your hair with a wide-tooth comb while you’re still in the shower and the water is running through your hair. Towel-dry carefully and your tangles should be minimized.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 24


 

Jul. 24

 
If you have a long or oblong face, you should create the illusion of width to balance it out. You can add width to your face by doing your hair with long, side-swept bangs or chin-length bobs. You will also do well with curls and waves that frame the face.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 23


 

Jul. 23

 
If your hair is fine, learn to use spray volumizers. They’re light enough to deposit a mist of shine on the hair without wilting it.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 22


 

Jul. 22

 
To promote healthy hair growth, apply essential oils to your scalp and hair at night.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 21


 

Jul. 21

 
Never apply conditioner directly to your scalp. Concentrate the application of conditioner to the tips of your hair strands, and then rinse your hair thoroughly with cold water to lock in the moisture.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 20


 

Jul. 20

 
If your hair is wavy, smooth and separate wet strands with a wide-tooth comb, then spritz a silicone-based shine-enhancing spray from ends to roots. Dry hair using a blow-dryer with a tapered nozzle to direct air down the hair shaft and seal the cuticle.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 19


 

Jul. 19

 
Apply shampoo directly on the scalp and just let the suds flow to the ends of your hair. Never apply the shampoo directly to the tips because the shampoo will wash off the oil that your hair tips need so much.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 18


 

Jul. 18

 
Long hair cut straight and without any shape can make a woman look either too old or too juvenile, but long hair that is done with layers and with the ends shaped at the back can make you look sophisticated and sexy.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 17


 

Jul. 17

 
The key to fighting humidity is locking out the moisture. Using a lightweight glaze on damp hair prior to going outside will form a protective barrier to help fight frizz.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 16


 

Jul. 16

 
The best hair extensions for average height women are usually around 22-inches long or less.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 15


 

Jul. 15

 
Almost any hairstyle will go with an oval face, whether locks are long or short, straight or curly. If you have an oval face, you will do well with having layers near your chin or cheekbones to draw attention to them.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 14


 

Jul. 14

 
If you have combination type hair, avoid using shampoos formulated for oily hair. They might worsen the condition of the dry tips of your locks. Instead, opt for shampoos made for normal hair.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 13


 

Jul. 13

 
Scarves, bandanas and hats are a stylish way to shield your strands from sun damage.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 12


 

Jul. 12

 
It’s vital to rinse hair thoroughly after shampooing and conditioning. Anything left behind will only dry out hair and cause unnecessary frizz.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 11


 

Jul. 11

 
Kick your volume up a notch by priming damp tresses with a volumizing mousse and blow-drying hair with a round brush.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 10


 

Jul. 10

 
Invest in a good haircut, no matter the price. A good haircut will last longer than an average one and you’ll end up spending less in the long run. Plus, you’ll look better!

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 9


 

Jul. 9

 
Let your hair products work for you while you’re sleeping. Go to bed with a moisturizing treatment on your hair and wrap your head in a turban to keep in the warmth. Then just rinse in the morning!

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 8


 

Jul. 8

 
Crayola-colored coifs may look provocative and appropriate on the runway but they don’t always translate well into the real world. Consult with your colorist for a more realistic shade.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 7


 

Jul. 7

 
If you are currently blow-drying your hair about seven days a week, cut down to about four days a week to keep your locks looking lovely.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 6


 

Jul. 6

 
If you’re hair is damaged, cut it off! Frazzled, fried and frizzy tresses need not be part of your daily routine.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 5


 

Jul. 5

 
The combination of sun and chlorine does a number on the health of your hair and the vibrancy of your color—and dull, damaged hair is never sexy. Before you jump into a chlorine pool, wet your hair and put a little conditioner on it.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 4


 

Jul. 4

 
Try using a flat iron to pop some curls in your hair by twisting strands through it, alternating directions randomly. Tousle with your hands and get ready to conquer the day!

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 3


 

Jul. 3

 
When you schedule your color appointment, book a haircut for the same day. Maintaining your cut with timely trims about every four to eight weeks will help keep your colored hair shiny and smooth.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 2


 

Jul. 2

 
Remember, a great hairstyle at most always starts with a great haircut. It must have balance, shape and movement.

Hair Tip of the Day – Jul 1


 

Jul. 1

 
Coppery-red hair coupled with green eyes works really well.
