Celebrity Hair Trends: Feather And Tinsel Hair Extensions Add Style

5 May

Add some flair to your hair this Spring!

If you are bored with your hair, try these fun, easy, and commitment-free ways to snazz up your look for Spring.

Featherlocks are actually little rooster feathers, hand picked by the owner of the company, who happens to be a hairstylist herself. There are knockoffs already, but the quality of Featherlocks and the ability to create how they look in your hair, sets them apart from the rest.

What’s cool is you can choose any color feathers you want, where you want them placed in your hair, and even create the look of highlights with them. They are applied similar to a locking type of hair extension, so it’s not harsh on your hair. Once you select the feathers you want, your stylist will place them on your hair, then clamp them down with this little bead that will keep the feathers in place. They won’t hurt, and they won’t fall out! You can wash, blow dry, flat iron, and even curl the feathers and they won’t ruin! Featherlocks run $10-$20 per feather section. But remember, these feathers last! It’s worth it for sure!

But remember, these feathers last! It’s worth it for sure!

Don’t forget the long lasting trend that swept the nation and is still holding strong; Hair Tinsel.

These HairFlairs tinsels can add any color highlight without overpowering your look. They tie on individually to hair strands and are easily removed. You can blow dry, curl and flat iron these strands to go with any style. HairFlairs hair tinsel runs $2 a strand.

Hair Tips: How to Blow Dry Your Hair Straight From Roots To Tips

2 May

1. Wash your hair. You can use your regular shampoo, but for better blow drying effects and protection, try washing with a moisturizing shampoo (Dry Hair Formula, as it’s often called). This type of shampoo will provide extra moisture that will protect your hair from the effects of the blow dryer. It will also protect it from any other heat caused by straightening or curling, and generally add more moisture to your locks. You don’t have to buy a super expensive brand – moisturising shampoos are available just about anywhere for all kinds of prices, so look around and secure the best deal for you.

2. Towel off your hair slightly, just enough to stop the dripping. Don’t rub your hair with the towel as the friction causes split ends, frizzy dryness and generally does a lot of damage. Instead, gently wrap the towel around your hair and squeeze, like blotting the water out of your hair. If you have hair that’s too short a length for that technique, wrap the towel around your head and rub very very gently using strong, circular motions. Don’t rub too fast or hard, and if you can feel pain or hair breaking, then use your common sense and stop. Your hair doesn’t have to be very dry at all after toweling; it just shouldn’t be excessively soaked and dripping everywhere.

3. Separate your hair into sections. The bigger the section, the longer it will take to dry. It’s best to go for 4-6 sections, but make sure nothing is tangled. If you have thick or longer hair, try using clips to help. If your hair’s a bit too short, you may want to just part it into two sections.

4. Start blow drying at the top/roots, about six inches away from your scalp. Maintain this distance throughout, so nothing burns. Never blow dry in an upwards motion, as this causes more damage. Plus, by drying the hair on your scalp, it prevents the moisture from soaking the rest of your hair.

5. Work your way down, and remember to move the blow dryer around, again, so nothing burns. If you simply focus the dryer on one spot for too long it will dry out and burn the hair, rather than simply drying it gently.

6. Leave your hair a little bit damp. Don’t ever dry until your whole head is completely dry – you need to leave in some moisture, so your hair won’t dry out, and become frizzy or damaged. Leave it tolerably damp, not so it soaks your clothes, but so it will dry naturally in about 5-10 minutes.

7. Finish with a blast of cold air, to lock in shine. Brush through your hair gently, or de-tangle it with your fingers. If needed, apply a moisturizing or anti-frizz serum and brush it through evenly. You can even use a tiny bit of olive oil for a more “natural” option. These will work to keep your locks shiny and smooth, and now, dry, all day long!

Hair Trend: Go Bold For Spring 2011 With Baby Blonde Hair!

14 Apr

Baby-blonde hair may be all the rage, but it’s not for everyone. According to Marie Robinson, who counts Emma Stone, Naomi Watts and Michelle Williams among her pale-tressed clients, “It works best on women who are at least halfway there to begin with, and they need touch-ups every four weeks.”

That said, its brightening effect on the skin is well worth the effort. “It’s rejuvenating,” says Chelsey Pickthorn, the Orlo Salon colorist who coaxed the model Abbey Lee Kershaw’s locks to the perfect platinum.

“But you really need to assess the hair’s condition before starting and then proceed slowly, with great care.”


These colorists specialize in natural-looking hues.

Zoe Wiepert/Bumble and Bumble

Wiepert — the colorist most requested by Bumble and Bumble’s own employees — is known for her blonde, which can run the gamut from low-brow (she colors a few of the New York Knicks city dancers) to high (literally: Wiepert bleached models’ brows for the fall ’11 Thakoon show).

Magano grew up in the West Village and trained under Marie Robinson. She comes from an art background (having attended Parsons the New School for Design for two years) but her specialty — platinum — calls for a decent knowledge of chemistry: “I’m one of the few colorists who likes to do double-process blondes,” she says.

Mary Louise Parker Experienced Hair Loss From Brazilian Hair Treatment M

13 Apr

Photo: Ben Gabbe/Getty

In a recent interview with The New York Times actress Mary Louise Parker (MLP) revealed some of her hair and beauty secrets to Tina Turnbow, a makeup artist who has worked with Mary Louise.

Mary Louise Parker’s Hair Fall Out From The Past

During the interview Mary Louise admitted to having a recent beauty mishap which involved her hair. She said that “not trusting my instincts – letting my vanity take over – and having the Brazilian Straightening Treatment (BST).” She explained “I’ve experienced hair fall-out in the past, and it is not fun. This treatment (BST) resulted in more. My advice: don’t do it!”

When I read the interview I immediately texted one of Mary Louise’s long time celebrity hairdressers and asked him if he had applied the Brazilian to the Weeds star. He said “no, she had the treatment done in New York” where she spends most of her time and “not in California” where he normally styles her hair.

He also confirmed that initially she told him she loved the Brazilian treatment until she started experiencing problems and hair loss.

Seaweed And Tumeric As Hair Growth Aides

Mary Louise confirmed during the interview that she carries “Sunscreen and dried seaweed for my daughter. She loves seaweed. And this herbal juice elixir with tumeric — amazing stuff.”

Note to Mary Louise, seaweed is an excellent food for helping to regrow lost hair. Ditto for tumeric. And yes, the Brazilian Keratin treatments may actually cause accelerated hair shedding and loss as a side effect of the treatment which has become controversial due to questions about formaldehyde.
