10 Tips to Grow Out Your Hair!

Remember that your hair will not grow out overnight. Use these tips to help your hair stay healthy and encourage growth.
1. Don’t skimp on the trims.
2. Eat lots of protein.
3. Take supplements, like biotin, that encourage hair growth. Ask your stylist what they recommend.
4. Avoid using excessive heat. This can add to split ends and breakage.
5. Apply a weekly conditioning or hot oil treatment.
6. Don’t shampoo everyday and avoid silicone shampoos.

10. At the end of each shower blast a cold-water rinse.
Talk to your stylist about what you are trying to do with your hair. They can help you plan it out so you can keep your beautiful locks looking gorgeous until you achieve your desired length.

FIND THE PERFECT CUT FOR YOUR(DIAMOND) FACE SHAPE

As we discussed in our last post there are many factors that can go into determining the perfect haircut for you as an individual. However, The most important element is identifying the shape of your face. In this face shape series we will help you identify the cut that will work best for you. So here is the question? What is your Face Shape? Heart, Long, Round, Square, Oval or Diamond? Today we discuss the Diamond Face Shape.
Diamond
The diamond shaped face is widest at the cheekbones with a narrowing forehead and a skinny, pointed chin.
CELEB DIAMOND FACE SHAPE: Tyra Banks, Serena Williams, Brandy, Scarlett Johansson
What is the perfect hairstyle, for a diamond shaped face?
  • Your face shape is balanced and dramatic. Experiment with a variety of styles. Almost everything works with your face, as long as you are a true diamond. You can wear shorter styles. However, if you are a dramatic diamond shape, you need to leave weight in the back nape area like someone with a heart shaped face. This will achieve more balance between your dramatic cheekbones and more delicate chin line.
  • Fringe options: Bangs (fringe) that sweep to one side
AVOID: The good news is you can do just about everything, but try not to wear too much hair on your face because you don`t want to hide your great features! I also suggest you avoid really short styles, a part in the center and styles that add fullness at your cheeks.
ALWAYS: Take a few photos of styles you like and take them to your hairdresser. They can best advice you on what will work best with your face shape, personality and lifestyle.

You lucky thing! Almost any style will look good on you.
Do you have long, thick, curly hair?
  • Ask your hairdresser to cut it so the curls are looser and to take out the thickness. Then sweep the top part back for a soft, flirty, sexy look. Want to get rid of your curls? Chop them out with a short, messy crop.
Fine Hair?
  • If you’d like your hair long ask your stylist for soft layers. This is the best way to add volume and sex appeal. If you want to go super short, you’re in luck. Your hair texture and face shape is ideal to carry off one of my favorite styles. A short, messy style is ideal.
Medium-textures hair?
  • Try, a fair amount of layers to keep it soft with a bit of edginess! Think modern.
Fringe options: Always keep soft looking and not too blunt or hard, as that look can age you, as well as, give you a hard look.
Color you sexy: Ask your stylist about low lighting the hair around your face to elongate your oval shape.
AVOID:  Heavy bangs. It may appear to add weight to your face.
ALWAYS: Take a few photos of styles you like and take them to your hairdresser. They can best advice you on what will work best with your face shape, personality and lifestyle.

What is the perfect hairstyle of a Square Shaped Face?
OVERALL: Your perfect hairstyle options are surprisingly sexy. A style that is feathered at the top and soft around your ears is an instant disguise for a square jaw.
Do you have fine hair?
  • A long straight cut with root lift is absolutely perfect and flattering for a wide jaw.
Do you have curly hair?
  • If you have curly hair, coax soft, sexy, textured layers around your face to soften your strong features.
Fringe options: Most hair types, except curly will be able to take a fringe that touches the eyebrows and which is longer and layered at the sides. However, if your hair is thick or frizzy layer the fringe throughout to thin it out.
Color you sexy: Lightening hair all around the face will soften a square face.
AVOID:
 As a rule of thumb avoid long straight styles that accentuate the jaw. Straight bangs, center parts and really short cuts are also to be avoided.
OVERALL: Make sure in styling that you achieve some roundness to the shape and some height at the crown or bangs and you will be on the right track.
ALWAYS: Take a few photos of styles you like and take them to your hairdresser. They can best advice you on what will work best with your face shape, personality and lifestyle.
