Layered Hair Styles – For a More Sophisticated Look!

Posted by Cool Long Hair Styles on July 28, 2009

Layered hair styles are versatile, trendy, and sophisticated. Whether you have long or short hair, bobs or shoulder tresses, layers can work for a vast majority of people and on many hairstyles. The reason for its versatility is based on the fact that layers can be customized to mesh well with a person’s hairstyle and shape of face.

Perfect Long Hair StylesApart from its versatility, layers have many other advantages. For instance, adding layers can modernize an old style without too drastic of a change, and layers can be both flirty and elegant, making them appropriate for any age. What’s more is that different layers can add natural volume to hair your hair without the use of chemicals and layers can also help hair that is damaged by split ends since layering requires cutting these split and broken ends off. This gives hair a more polished appearance. Creating layers can lighten very thick, heavy hair, allowing its natural waves to appear in medium and long styles and layering can be of particular advantage for those who suffer from migraine headaches since layering can give some relief with the lighter styles it creates.

But while layered hair can work well with most types of hair and hairstyles, there are some drawbacks that you may want to evaluate before layering your hair. Firstly, very curly hair does not layer well, because the shorter layers tend to curl too much and this disrupts the layered look creating a scruffy appearance. Secondly, folks who like to change their styles frequently may not want to have their hair layered as it can take quite a while to grow out them out, depending on how fast your hair grows and how short your layers are.

The best way to grow out layers is to keep the bottom layer at an unchanging length, allowing the upper layers time to catch up with it. But it can get very boring and tedious and many people get frustrated by the wait and work. Also, if layers are done in such a way as to enhance the shape of your face it can make your features stand out too starkly. And while layers can be cut in many different lengths, the best range for layers is to keep them below the earlobe on long hair and below the eye on short hair, otherwise they may look out of control.

Overall, layered hair works for most people. It adds shape, volume, texture and structure to hair, but as with any hairstyle, it’s probably wiser if you sought some professional assistance before deciding to layer your hair.

It seems that those are all for the women. With that said, if you have a diamond face and you have came here searching for hairstyles for diamond face shape, then you have come to the right place.

Great Long Hair StylesBelieve it or not, that hairstyle you aim at all depends on the shape of your face. If you have a diamond face, then you will have wider cheek bones and an overall length that is short. Guys, you need to think of a style that will add some width to that chin. If you would like to have medium length hair, then we highly recommend you opting for a style that you can tuck behind your ears. This works perfectly as it will help to show off the structure of those perfect full cheek bones that you have.

Hairstyles with bangs that are straight across will also work good with a diamond face. This is because bangs are known to shorten those long faces along with the side parts.

This is a rule that is applied to not only the hairstyles for men, but it is also applied to the ones for women. Before you go out and pick out of the hairstyles for diamond face shape, you will need to be one hundred percent sure that you have a diamond shaped face.

If you are one of those who love to be with the times and stay in style, then just knowing what colors are hot in the fashion scene are not enough? After all, appearance is not just about apparels! Rather, it is all about how you to carry yourself, and thus hairstyles play a vital role in determining your fashion consciousness. So what are the styles in vogue for 2007 to 2008?

Short styles for sure are in this season. The style to go for this season is an easy, stylish, cute yet trendy style. Long hair is lost with the last season, and so go ahead and be adventurous. Crop your hair real short and dare to look sexy.

One of the trendiest looks this season is Bobs that are back with a bang. This precision bob that is carefully done to accentuate your unique facial structure, or highlight a long, beautiful neck is the happening look this season. Add to it the bangs that have retained their popularity even this season. This is probably because of the fact that they make women look glamorous by accentuating their face shape. For instance, the right kinds of bang can accentuate someone’s best features like the eyes and at the same time make them look groomed by keeping their hair off of their face. Whatever be your face shape, a bob hairstyle with bangs can work wonders for you and look you look like a diva.

You can try out either the thick short bangs that require less maintenance or the long bangs if you are craving for a chic look. Else, you can put up your bangs in a ringlet and achieve that exotic look. Whatever be your style, remember that with bangs this season you will not be out of fashion.

This season also the curls seem to be out. It is time to have a straight look that looks classy and sophisticated. So get your straightening irons out and achieve that sleep, well groomed straight look. In fact this season is all about having your own personal style and carrying it with élan. There is an absolute feast of looks to choose from.

If bob does not appeal to you and you are craving for some other short style with which you can be more adventurous, you can also try out the Mod style. This hairstyle that comprises of heavy, side-swept bangs and blunt lines to which there has been added a significant amount of slicing or texturizing to lighten up the bluntness, is one of the in looks for 2007-2008. The style tenet that you should keep in mind this season is asymmetry. Go for unexpected texture and length differences, as the asymmetrical look is very much in fashion. Go in for strategic layers and try out peaks, swirls and waves technically known as directional styling.

The look that you can also opt for this season is funky and daring with a lot of room for individuality. Rich dark colors accentuated by warm colored highlights are hot in the fashion scene this year. If you want to follow the trend, go for burgundy, and mahogany with strategically placed highlights that accentuate the texture and compliment your features and skin tone. Whatever you do, remember that you need to carry the style with grace. After all, fashion loses all its sense if not carried with a splash of your own style.

Hairstyles For Oblong Faces

Posted by Cool Long Hair Styles on July 20, 2009

When you look at the mirror, you want to believe that you have the perfect oval face. But when you copy the hairstyles that look good on oval faces, you end up with something that is far from perfect. Perhaps you do not have an oval face. You may in fact have an oblong face.

A Great Asian Long Hair StylesWhat is an Oblong Face Shape?

The oblong face looks almost like an oval face but it is characterized by a face length that is longer than ideal. The ideal face length, which is the distance from the hairline to the tip of the chin, should be one and one-half times longer than the length across the widest part of the face. This ideal face length can be found in the oval face shapes. If the face length is longer, then the face shape is already considered oblong.

The oblong face is not ideal for many hairstyles, but it does not sentence your hair to a lifetime of unflattering hairstyles. In fact, it is very possible to look gorgeous and stunning with your oblong face. Think of Liv Tyler, Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker, Niki Taylor, Stephanie Seymour, and Gabrielle Reece. All that you need to do to accentuate an oblong face is get an appropriate and flattering hairstyle. A hairstyle, of course, is a personal choice and should reflect a woman’s unique personality. But there are some rules to follow for the oblong face.

Rules for the Oblong Face

Bobs and layers will look great on the oblong face. But the first thing to remember is that the hairstyle should never add length to the oblong face. This means that extra long hairstyles, such as those that end beyond the shoulders, should be avoided. Short bobs are preferable to long bobs. But then you probably saw Gwyneth Paltrow wearing hair that goes beyond the shoulder. She looked adorable. The truth is that Gwyneth has one or more hairstylists who fuss with her hair at every instance. They keep her hair at an ideal volume so Gwyneth’s hair stays stunning. For women like us who can’t hire a hairstylist on a retainer, the key to an attractive hairstyle is to keep the hair shorter.

Unfortunately, not all short hairstyles will look good on the oblong face. Short hairstyles that add height to the head, such as the pixie crop and the spiky hair, will only make the oblong face look longer. The recommended short hairstyles are those that add volume to the sides of the face, to restore a more desirable balance. These short hairstyles should have layers and may end in sassy flicks. The chin-length bob that caress the jaw line will also look gorgeous.

And lastly, the best hairstyles for the oblong face are those that come with bangs. Bangs that are soft and wispy will give the illusion of shorter face lengths. And if the jaw is strong, the bangs will make the face look more feminine. For a daring look, the brow-skimming bangs will be great on the oblong face. Most styles of bangs are recommended for the oblong shape, as long as they do not add vertical lines to the face. Lastly, if you have the time to spend a couple of hours at the salon, you may want to try having wavy curls.

Layered cuts are great for fine hair, thick hair and curly hair.

Your final hair cut should provide you with several styling options and it should also look great as it grows out.

After selecting your medium length hairstyle you will next need to learn about the types of hair care products you will need to use to keep it looking great.

Trendy Hair Styles For A Round Face

Posted by Cool Long Hair Styles on July 13, 2009

One of my friend has a perfect round face. She also has a fine hair so it doesn’t tend to grow much longer than an inch or two past her shoulders. Talking to her my advice was that the most suitable style is a classic bob cut, just below the chin. From the very beginning my friend considered this hair style very boring, but day by bay she realized that it is not.

Trendy LooK With Long Hair StylesThere is a lot she can do with this cut. She can flip it out, flip it under, part it in the middle, part it on the side, tuck hair behind both ears or just one, wear it up in multiple ways. She also can scrunch it and let it dry curly, mousse it, piece it, etc….

One day she meet the perfect hairdresser with plenty of talent and imagination. The hairdresser puts a couple of strategically placed long layers in the back. She’s showed her how to tease this section, spray it, then gently comb over it to create a lift at the top in the back.

This great trick added an extra half-inch to her height, which was a very good performance thinking she is only 5 feet tall.

Probably the words cannot explain enough, but this trick, combined with longer layers tapered towards the front, seems to elongate her round face and make it appear more oval.
