How to do a Side Ponytail + the New Salon Space

Working the Updo for Curly Hair

Updos have the potential for elegant and classy styles, as well as sporty and casual styles. Curly hair has a distinct difference from wavy or straight hair primarily due to its tendency to frizz and the messiness it seems to create when put up. Fortunately, some easy updos are available to those who have curly hair to create a beautiful and elegant look.

Simple Ponytail

Like any other hair type, curly hair is easy to put into a ponytail. Unlike other hair types, it might seem more challenging due to the curls and potential to frizz while brushing and teasing the hair up. In reality, a simple ponytail is easy even when you have curly hair.

The first step is to always use a comb to work out any tangles. This is easier when you have damp, recently conditioned hair rather than dry hair because it will not frizz while wet. Once the tangles are out, simply gather the hair in your hands, starting from the front and sides and then pulling the back up last. Secure everything in place with a ponytail holder.

Greek-Goddess Half-Up Style

The Greek-goddess half-up hairstyle recently worn by Angelina Jolie on the red carpet is a simple style for anyone with curly hair, and it looks subtly elegant. It is also ideal for women with longer hair. Simply gather the front and sides so that your hair pulls away from the face, and use bobby pins to secure it all to the back of your hair. The result is a low, elegant half-ponytail.

For this style, try using bobby pins that are the same color as your hair. As an alternative, you can also use clips to hold your hair back.

Messy Updo

A messy updo is perhaps the easiest style to create for someone with curly hair as opposed to straight or wavy hair. This style is perfect for a casual day or for any formal occasion.

To achieve a messy updo, simply tease mousse into the hair while it is still damp. Separate out large chunks of hair, starting from the front and sides. Pull the chunks away from the face, twist them and then use a bobby pin or two to hold everything into place. Repeat for each chunk, working from front to back. In the back, gather the chunks of hair in an upward fashion, and pin everything up.

Keeping the ends free will allow curls to form and shape around the head, creating a messy and elegant style. Add a headband with jewels to make the style more formal.

Classic Bun

The classic bun is as simple as a ponytail. In fact, it starts from a ponytail. Pull your hair back into a ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Gather the ponytail and then give it a twist. As you twist the hair, wrap it around the ponytail until you reach the end. Secure the bun with bobby pins to keep it in place.

Conclusion

Curly hair is appropriate for beautiful updos, and in fact is easier than most other hair types because the hair has the perfect texture for putting it up and creating a romantic, elegant look. The curls make it possible for messy as well as sculpted styles to look amazing.

Women’s Hairstyles For 2012: Short Hair Trend Prediction

Short hairstyles will never go out of date as long as people still value simplicity and versatility. When sporting a short hair, a woman will not be burdened with complicated hair maintenance. If you are a highly active woman and have many other things to think about besides maintaining your hair, it can’t be argued that short hairstyles are perfect for you.

In 2011, the most popular short hairstyles for women are the bob and the pixie cut. Many celebrities have been seen sporting the two short hairstyles and gained positive reaction from both fans and fashion experts. With the right facial textures and cheekbones, bob and pixie haircuts can compliment women’s appearance without making them look boyish.

However, the cropped pixie hairstyle is not suitable for everyone. It is most suitable for those with prominent cheekbones and short face. That way, the haircut will compliment the wearer’s look instead of making her look boyish. However, if you have the right facial features and the guts to try it, a layered and asymmetrical pixie cut should look good on you. Consult with your hairdresser before deciding to try this hairstyle.

On the other hand, if you want a longer-than-pixie short haircut, you can opt for the bob hairstyle. Adding layers to your hair will also make you look chic. For a more daring look, choose tousled and messy appearance for your bob haircut. However, if you prefer a sleeker style, a straightening iron and some styling products are the must have instruments for a perfect straight bob.

2012 will still maintain longer crops and side swept bangs to accompany the short styles. For a bolder look, the more extreme cut such as punk-inspired style is predicted to exist.

Instead of plain colored hair, it seems that 2012 is the year of colors. More highlights will be given for more definitive short hairstyle. Besides that, women are also encouraged for dyeing their hair for a fancier touch. For a more festive touch, feather hair extensions which have become a trend in 2011 can still occur in 2012 for adorning and defining short hairstyles.

Short hairstyles 2012 are inarguably affected by cute short hairstyles 2012. Browse through our gallery of exploringhairstyles.com for more picture collections and tips about maintaining and styling short haircut.
