I’ve gotten so many emails saying “Joy, can you please show us how to do celebrity hairstyles!!!!” and I was like “oh , what the hell. fine.” I have no problem doing it.

Here I have Jessica Simpson with a classic twist up do.

Classic Neat Twist
To create classic neat twists like Jessica Simpson’s use Redken fabricate 03 heat active texturizer from roots to end and brush hair through. Then use a large base curling iron making sure to apply hot sets 22 thermal setting mist to each three-inch section of hair and clip each section once done until cool. Brush hair out. Apply a small amount of glass 01 smoothing serum throughout, then backcomb and smooth over the sides and back. This gives the shape and height that is perfect for this look. Pin back into a French twist, smoothing the top and spray with forceful 23 super strength finishing spray to keep shape.

Here, you have Emmy Rossum’s sexy romantic half up do

Romantic Half Updo
To create a romantic half updo like Emmy Rossum, first spray headplay 12 pliable working spray from root to end, and blow dry. Use a medium base curling iron on three-inch sections and apply spray starch 15 heat memory styler to each section, roll and pin back to cool down. Run fingers through hair using vinyl glam 01 mega shine spray and pull a section of hair up front and secure tightly with pins.

Carmen Electra

To get Carmen’s sexy ’90’s supermodel-style hair, start by applying a quarter-size dollop of frank.studio Volumizing Cream. Apply from roots to ends on clean, towel-dried hair. With a large round brush, blow hair up and out starting at the nape. Take small sections and be sure each section is dry before moving onto the next. Once hair is completely dry, set on large velcro rollers.

Eva Mendez

The soft, sexy Brigette Bardot-esque look seen here on Eva Mendes is great for long, layered hair. Feminine and easy to achieve, this look is great for anyone. Start by applying a few pumps of L’Oreal Bliss Extreme Volumizer to clean, towel-dried hair. Using a large round brush, dry hair up and out, away from the scalp. Work in two sections, starting at the nape. Use this method on the sides and top as well. For the front, blow hair forward and sweep to the side. Once hair is dry, toss upside down and tousle with your fingers. Finish off with a mist of flexible hold hairspray.

Hairstyles For Different Face Shapes To Make You Beautiful

clothes, clothing, fashion, love, makeup, sale, slim, splurge, spring fashion, tips, trend, trends, Uncategorized, weightloss

Hair style is important and the posts that I have show pictures of nice hairstyles, but I dont go into detail about what hair looks good on different face shapes.

Take a good look in the mirror. Pull your hair back in a pony tail and see what face shape you have.

Oval Face:

oval-face.jpg

Only slightly narrower at the jaw line than at the temples, with a gently rounded hairline.

Try:

A variety of styles . . . most any hair shape looks good on you. Your “perfect” features allow you to wear more styles than any other face shape. Have you ever noticed the majority of models fall into this shape? Have you noticed how many different hair styles they can wear?

You can wear short, medium and long hair styles. Your face shape is well “balanced” or in even proportion. You will look best when styling your hair off your face. Most oval face shapes can wear slicked-backed looks as well.

Avoid:

Covering up your “perfect” features with heavy bangs, or too forward-directed styles.

In wearing your hair style on your face, you’ll lose your face shape behind the hair. It may appear to add weight to your face.

Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Mariah Carey, Jewel

Rectangular Face

rectangl.jpg

Long and slender, about the same width at forehead and just below cheekbones. May have a very narrow chin or a very high forehead.

Try:

Short to medium lengths. Fullness at the sides of your face. Soft wispy bangs. You’ll want to balance the look of a long and slender face. Soft wispy bangs will shorten the appearance of the length. Fullness at the sides of your face will add width to the look of your face shape.

By cutting the hair into a short or medium length, the outline of the cut will also shorten the look of the length of the face. Layers work great with your face shape, as they will add softness to the straight lines in your face. Try side parts, and you may be able to wear straight back styles.

Avoid:

To much hair length . . . your face will look even longer! Too much height lengthens your face. Center parts. When your hair gets past your shoulders there is a good chance it is doing you more harm than good. The models with rectangular face shapes and long hair, get by with it only because they have a “on call” hairdresser who is busy primping and teasing, setting and styling to add fullness to the hair. Since most of us don’t have this luxury, my suggestion is keep it above shoulder length.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Kirstie Alley, Janet Jackson, Niki Taylor

ROUND

round.jpg

Full-looking face with a round chin and hairline. Widest point is at the cheeks and ears.

Try:

hair styles with fullness and height at the crown. Off center parts. Short hair styles with a swept-back direction or hair styles that are longer than chin length. By layering the top to achieve fullness and keeping the rest of the cut relatively close to the face, your face shape will appear longer and narrower.

Avoid:

Chin length hair with a rounded line that mirrors face’s circular shape. Center parts. Short-short crops, straight “chopped” bangs. Fullness at side of ears. A rounded haircut ending at the chin will certainly add weight to your face shape. Because the widest part of your face is at the cheeks and ears, you need to avoid having the fullness of the cut here as it will make your face appear wider.

Roseanne Bar, Kate Winslet, Drew Barrymore, Charlotte Church

SQUARE

square.jpg

A strong, square jaw line and usually an equally square hairline.

Try:

Short-to-medium length hair, especially with wave or roundness around the face. Wispy bangs. Off-center parts, height at the crown. You want to soften the square look of your face with layers and wispy looks around the face. Height at the crown will elongate your symmetrical shape. If your hair is straight you may want to consider a body wave, as some curl or wave to the hair will achieve a nice balance to the straight features of your face shape.

Avoid:

Long straight styles that accentuate square jawbone. “Linear” straight bangs or center parts. A straight bob ending at the jaw line is the wrong thing to do for your face shape. You can wear a layered bob, however it should end above or below the jaw line. Make sure in styling that you achieve some roundness to the shape and some height at the crown or bangs, and you will be on the right track.

Sandra Bullock, Demi Moore

HEART

square1.jpg

Face is wide at the temples and hairline, narrowing to a small delicate chin.

Try:

Chin-length or longer styles. Side-parted hair styles. Swept-forward layers around the upper face, gently wispy bangs. A chin length bob is great on your face shape! This creates a balanced look by giving fullness where you need it. You can wear shorter styles, however, if you are a dramatic heart shape you need to leave weight in the back nape area. This will achieve more balance between your dramatic cheekbones and more narrowing chin.

Avoid:

Short, full styles that emphasize upper face. Height at the crown. Severe, slicked back looks. If you are a dramatic heart shape, the short full styles with tapered necklines which emphasize the upper face will make you look top heavy. Too much height at the crown will give the appearance of a longer and narrower chin. Just remember if you have a dramatic heart shape face, you have great cheekbones to emphasize! Don’t miss the boat by getting a cut which is to top heavy.

Michelle Pfeiffer, Ashley Judd, Jennifer Love Hewitt

TRIANGULAR

triangle.jpg

Reverse of the heart-shape . . . a dominant jaw line with narrowing at the cheek bone and temples.

Try:

Shorter hair that balances prominent jaw line. Styles that are full at the temples, taper at the jaw. Off center parts. Wedges and shags look great on you. You need lots of layers to achieve fullness through the upper part of your face. By wearing styles which are full at the temples and taper at the jaw line, you achieve a balance which can be remarkable, in accenting features otherwise understated. Try tucking hair behind your ears as this will draw attention to your eyes and add width in this area.

Avoid:

Long, full hair styles that draw attention to jaw line. Center parts—off-center is more flattering.

Too much height at the crown. You want to stay away from putting most of the weight of a haircut at the jaw line and below. This will give the appearance of added weight to the face.

If going with long hair, it should be kept tight at the nape.

Kathy Ireland

DIAMOND FACE

diamond2.jpg

A cross between heart and a dramatic oval. Widest at the cheekbones, and narrow equally at the forehead and jaw line.

Try:

Your face shape is balanced and dramatic. Try a variety of styles. Almost everything works with your face (as long as you are a true diamond). You can wear shorter styles, however if you are a dramatic diamond shape you need to leave weight in the back nape area like a heart shaped face. This will achieve more balance between your dramatic cheekbones and more delicate chin line.

Avoid:

You can do just about everything, but try not too wear to much hair on your face, thereby hiding your great features.

Katherine Hepburn, Linda Evangelista

Celebrities are in the spotlight nearly every day of their lives. It is up to them to set the trends of clothing, jewelry and hair in 2008. It seems that the celebs have spoken and the number one most chosen hairstyle for fine dress occasions in 2008 is going to be the pull back.The pull back hairstyle refers to any of a wealth of styles where long hair is pulled back to the neckline and captured in some beautiful hair piece. The focus of this style in 2008 with be asymmetrical and non conforming. With the sides of the hair straight and sleek, the back bun will be filled with ringlets of curls. What appear to be small wisps of hair framing in the face, will be purposefully placed there through a careful cutting technique.Hair jewelry will not play a huge part in hairstyles in 2008. It seems Hollywood is taking the green trend and applying it to hair styling, as well. Many pull back hair designs are featuring no hair jewelry at all. The hair seems only to hold itself, as if bound by nature itself.

In 2008, celebrities will be wisping their hairstyles behind them and focusing on what is in front of them. Long hairstyles will be retained for many, with careful wisps cut to frame the face. Nature will abound and hair jewelry will disappear.

MAKE ME BEAUTIFUL CELEBRITY HAIR STYLES FOR 2008 PART 2

New POSTING!!!!!

What hairstyle looks good on me?

bargain, beauty, clothes, clothing, fashion, love, makeup, sale, slim, splurge, spring fashion, tips, trend, trends

Dont you hate it when you go to the salon, and you tell the person to cut your hair a certain way, and you get really detailed and even show a pic, but the out come was all wrong???? That’s happened to me a couple of times, damnit! I paid for a damn hair cut that I didnt like and made me look like CRAP!!!

For me, I figured since I’ve lost weight, (went from 165 pounds to 125 pounds), I should try something new. I’ve had the same freakin long hair that’s been layered. Ah, yes, when Jennifer Aniston made it popular in the 90s…damn, that’s one hell of an old hair style but its so nice.

So, I’m having a difficult time trying to find what looks good on me. The bad thing is I have a round face with big cheeks, but the good thing is Im not ugly. So before I go to the beauty salon, I want to make sure that I look “cute” with the new hair cut, style, color, whatever.

I went on line and found these websites to decide which hairstyles look good on me.
