Beautiful redhead womanYour hairstyle can make or break your entire look. The right hairstyle can enhance your beauty and make you feel great! If you’re stuck with a dated style and want something new, take your facial shape into consideration. Long hair can help lengthen a round face, while short hair helps take focus off a heart shaped face. Length is another consideration when choosing a hairstyle. Here are some ideas for both long and short hair:

Hairstyles for Long Hair

If you’ve got long hair, then there are a wide variety of choices available to you. Keep your length yet add bounce and structure with long layers or a razored cut. Go with an easy updo by pulling your hair into a ponytail, twisting the ponytail, then securing with a clip and tucking stray ends under the twist. For a sporty look, try two long braids. To soften the look, pull some wispy tendrils out and let them fall around your face.

It’s all about hair: its spring time and fresh sexy locks are what’s needed to see us through until summer.

Spring is the time to get creative with your barnet and start injecting some ‘ooooooh’ into your look.

UpDos: Get back to your girlhood talents and start braiding. Ponytails and braids are hot, hot, hot. As much as we LOVED the loose bun trend of yester year, it’s purported not to be back this spring, according to Glamour magazine. Like a garland headdress, a single braid woven across the top of the head is nothing if not romantic and it’s a brilliant alternative to hair clips for keeping hair off your face.

This look, coined the “empire braid”, is a favourite of stylists all over the globe. Worn with the rest of the hair down it gives an almost Greek princess feel, while when teamed with a high ponytail the look is much more edgy. This can be so soft and elegant it even makes a sex kitten like Jessica Simpson look grown-up. It’s a most perfect hairstyle to team with this season’s crisp fashion lines. (more…)
