Making a Frizzy Hairstyle Work for Special Occasions

One of the most common advices that people with frizzy hair receive is to ‘tame’ or ‘smoothen’ their hair. Thus, people tend to flat iron their frizzy hair without mercy and use a ton of anti-frizz hair product or hairspray in the process. The problem with frizzy hair is that it is not really easy to tame because sometimes, after styling the hair, the frizz can return and make your hair look like a bird’s nest!

So, as a frizzy-haired girl, what can you do? First of all, you don’t always need to work against your frizz; you can always work with it, i.e. embrace your frizzy hair and make the most of it instead of fighting it. In case of special occasions, when you really want to look your best, you should avoid fighting your frizzy hair problems. Instead, make your frizzy hair the foundation for your hairstyle.

Having a frizz can be good

Yes it can, because it gives you the supremely stylish ‘messy’ look that most of the celebrities sport these days. So, frizz is not always a bad thing, even in cases of hair updos for special occasions, it can add the much-needed texture and volume! So if you have a special occasion coming up then you should choose from amongst hairstyles which require your hair to be frizzy, i.e. hairstyles which wouldn’t work on smooth and ‘controlled’ hair! Are bob hairstyles trending again? Well, the answer is a definite ‘Yes’! If you have a bob hairstyle then you can switch it up on special occasions by going for a tousled or ‘bed-head’ look. A textured wavy bob can look really stylish and it goes well with dresses. So ditch the smooth and sleek bob as the frizz and extra texture can make this hairstyle more interesting.

If needed, you can use a volumizing mousse for extra hold. You can also use a large barrel hair curler to add some defined waves to your textured bob. For girls with long hair, frizz can be used to create a beehive updo.

This hairstyle works best on dirty hair or hair that has not been washed for 2-3 days. Just use a dry shampoo at the roots to get rid of the greasy look and use a fine-toothed comb to backcomb or tease your hair at the crown.

The frizz in your hair would naturally add some texture to it, therefore you wouldn’t need to tease it too much and end up damaging your hair. Once you’ve got a satisfactory volume, you can go ahead and sweep your hair into a messy bun or try an intricate updo if you’re good at working with your hair. For these styles, it is always advisable to go for a messy updo instead of an uptight perfection. If your hair is long enough then you can have it teased, puffed up and held in place using a claw clip and for the other half of your hair, you can create a messy fishtail braid.

This unruly hairstyle looks good in case of formal occasions and can be combined with a fancy top or a dress. The messy look of the fishtail braid allows you to free yourself from trying to catch a glimpse of your hairstyle every now and then in the mirror and worrying about whether your hair has frizzed up or not!

How the quality of your hair iron can make or break your hairstyle and what you can do about it

Let’s explore a problem that all of us girls know all to well – the bad hair day. Let’s look at it from different angles talk about how a top rated hair iron from a reputable brand like a Paul Mitchell hair straightener can save the day. And let us also review some of the other options out there.

Let’s just imagine a scenario…

You have been invited to a really swanky party that everyone you know has been trying to find an invitation to. You’ve bought a new dress just for the occasion, a pair of new shoes to match the dress, and you are planning to spend the afternoon just before the party in the hair salon.

But, things don’t always turn out as planned, and your boss hands you an assignment that he needs that day (as they usually do). There goes you salon appointment.

And, it’s just started to rain which means that you are going to come down with a case of the frizzies. You want to take your straightening iron to it, but that might make the situation even worse. So, what do you do?

I guess it’s a do it yourself kind of situation and it doesn’t all come to your skills with a hair iron. Often, the very quality of your chosen hair iron can be the difference between a wonderful evening and returning home in tears with mascara pouring down your cheeks mixed with tears.

Some of the best options when it comes to hair straighteners:

Chi Flat Irons

Chi Hair IronsChi’ is a word that you are going to see a lot all of the top hair salons. They make very good (and extremely distinctive and colorful) straightening irons. But, it’s important to remember that Chi is not the brand or the same line of products as Chi Home, since this is a common confusion that could get you in trouble if you assume they’re both the same level of product.

Chi Home appeared in the marketplace in around 2009 and people immediately assumed that Chi had simply come out with a line of products for home use. And, I’m guessing that the “evil” minds behind the Chi Home brand wanted you to think that. The truth is that the chi Home brand and line of products is of vastly inferior quality.

When you get a genuine Chi, you get a straightening iron that maintains a steady adjustable level of heat that reaches around 450 degrees Fahrenheit in some models. But, the operative word is steady. The cheaper irons tend to fluctuate in temperature over the entire ironing surface, creating some areas that work fine some areas that don’t. This can give your hair a disheveled and uneven look. By using a Chi, this will never be an issue.

Remington hair straighteners

Remington hair ironsThe Remington line of hair straighteners are generally thought of being as being high-quality hair care items.

However, there have been some reviews that I’ve seen posted on some of their models that have failed to impress me. So, in being somewhat loyal to the Remington brand, I’ll offer my opinion on a model in the Remington line of straightening irons that I personally like.

The Remington S9500 Pearl Styler has been my constant companion about five years now. It does everything that I ask of it, and the feature of it revolving 360 degrees is just clever design. I found to my dismay, when I had to use my friend’s in an emergency, that this is certainly not the case with other hair irons and that this alone makes the world of a difference.

The S9500 gives away smooth and even, non-fluctuating heat up to about 450 degrees Fahrenheit. This iron works perfectly for my needs, and I don’t think that Remington could ever improve on its design.

How to Choose Glasses That Would Fit Your Hairstyle

While the main purpose of glasses could be to improve your vision or protect your eyes from sun and dust, it is important that they also look good on your face.

Choosing the right glasses for your hair style could be a difficult and challenging task. This is because there are endless options available out there and one would often find themselves in a state of confusion and indecision when it comes to choosing the right glasses.

So over the next few lines we will try and find out the various points to be taken into account when it comes to identifying the right glasses. At the end of the day there is no denying the fact that more numbers of people are being forced to choose reading and looking glasses because of various factors. The most common reason is spending too much time in front of the computer and the television. Playing games can also hurt eyes quite badly.


Shape of Your Head

While many of us pay a lot of attention to the face while choosing glasses for our eyes, we often tend to over look our hairstyles. There is a close relation between the hairstyle, apart from the shape of our face.

Hence hairstyle needs to be given the importance it deserves when it comes to choosing glasses. The color of your hair needs to be taken into account as well. If it’s brown then it might not be a bad idea to opt in for black glasses. Pink or blue frames could also be a good choice.

If somebody has blond hair then going with green, coral or different shades is always a good choice. Those who have black hair would not find these choices as good tough.

Research and Gather As Much Information As Possible

glassesThe best way to choose the right classes is to gather as much information and knowledge as possible. It would not be advisable to rush through the entire process.

The internet is perhaps the best place where one could get the right kind of information when it comes to choosing the right glasses keeping in mind the color of hair, the type of hair, the face types, size, and shape and so on.

There are many professional websites that could help customers in more ways than one. There are also many communities and discussion forums which could also shed some new light on the subject.

Therefore at the end of the day there is hardly any doubt that the whole process of choosing the right glasses has to be done carefully and with due diligence.
