Work It Out!

Happy New Year! With each new year we’re full of hope and full of resolutions. Getting into shape is probably the # 1 resolution made each year.  If you’re a determined diva who’s planning to hit the gym hard this year you’ll need a sweat friendly hairstyle. I’ve listed a few easy breezy hairstyles that you can rock while getting your workout on!

EXTENSIONS ARE A GIRLS BEST FRIEND!

Why Extensions (weave)?

1. Low maintenance hairstyle.

2. Protects hair from excessive heat styling and other harmful chemical services.

3. Extensions give you the freedom to have an intense workout and not worry about your hair.

Tip: Choose a hair stylist that specializes in extension (weave) services and hair care! In a few months, you can look forward to healthy hair growth . Don’t forget to take hair vitamins and amp up your diet with green leafy veggies and protein!

Why Braids?

1.Low maintenance hairstyle.

2. Braids and locs are weather proof and sweat proof!

3. Braids allow you to take a break from heat styling.

Tip: Do not braid hair tight! Tight braids can lead to breakage and balding. If you live in Los Angeles and you’re looking for a stylist who braids well and practices healthy hair care  please check out Crystal Oliver at www.crystalblingssalon.com . She’s an amazing braider and hair stylist!

GO NATURAL!

Why go natural?

1. Low maintenance hairstyle.

2. You can twist or set natural hair to achieve different fabulous textured looks.

3. Natural styles hold up well through workouts and bad weather.

4. Rocking natural hair is freeing! We’ve entered into a natural hair revolution  and there are so many amazing products on the market today. These new products (Miss Jessie’s for example) help natualistas maintain their natural styles and keep them looking great all day.

Tip: Make sure to use products that add moisture to natural hair and avoid products with parabens, silicone, petroleum, and mineral oil. Do weekly hot oil treatments! Check out my post on natural hot oil treatments “Get Your Hot Oil On”

Why Go Short?

1. Low maintenance hairstyle.

2. Pixie cuts are super trendy and cute.

3. Short hair looks great even when it’s a sweaty mess!

Tip:  When wearing short hair  make sure your eyebrows are neat and shaped. Don’t forget to wear lashes, makeup and earrings too.  Try to create softness when wearing short edgy hair for a balanced look.

Ladies,  make sure that your hair is in tip-top shape while getting in shape. Let’s go! xoxo

Fab Holiday Hair Tips

The holidays are here and it’s time to take you hair to the next level!

Dress It Up!

The easiest way to take your hair from ordinary to extraordinary is to add headbands, feathers, bows, and barrettes! Hair accessories are a great way to give your hair a little extra holiday glam.

Curl It Up!

Try a roller set or rod set this holiday season for a fun and sexy look. If you usually rock a straight sleek style… surprise your family and friends with bouncy curls!

Play It Up!

The holidays are also a great time to be bold and fun. If you’ve always wanted to add length and volume to your hair…now is the time! Clip-in extensions are sold everywhere. Add a few clip-in extensions to your holiday style for that instant WOW factor!

Color It Up!

Changing your hair color is like getting a mini makeover! Hair color has the ability to enhance features and hide breakage. Chicks, don’t put it off, color those pesky grays and take years off your appearance or add rich warm tones and unleash your inner hottie!
