new hairstyles for spring

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

We are both constantly changing our hair...short, long, light, dark, bangs, no bangs, curly straight...get the picture? You name it we have tried it! Back in the day we were the girls that owned a crimper (some of you youngins may not even know what that is...sigh).  We will be documenting Jilly's new 'do coming up, trying to make a change while keeping your length can be hard and a little too subtle so we are going to try and it see what happens. You guys will be the judge!

Before we get that done, there have been many hairstyles to consider...through our research we have stumbled across the hottest styles for the spring...what still is hot and what's new!

Braid Away: This style is still hear to stay but now with a twist, we are loving the undone braid look. It looks effortless and modern! Here are some instructions:

How to Get it Right

1. No need for a blowout; just apply a bit of texturizer to the bottom third of dry hair for nongreasy piecey-ness. A good one to try: Pantene Pro-V Texture Spray Wax ($6.50, at drugstores). 2. Make a braid (or two!), securing with a clear elastic two inches from the ends. 3. Now gently tug around the crown and back of your head to get the messiness going, instructs celebrity hairstylist Hallie Bowman. To loosen the braid up even more, stick your fingers or the handle of a comb in and wiggle a bit. Got layers? Let ‘em hang out

Long and Wavy: Its here to stay it seems! The more natural the wave looks the better!

Do it Yourself:
Before bedtime, mist just-washed, damp hair with a leave-in conditioner and a volume-boosting aerosol spray (an aerosol spray will dry soft, and won’t leave hair hard and crunchy). Then twirl one-inch sections of hair into spiral braids and let them dry overnight.
Short on time? Here’s how Fashion Week tress masters create the look in a crunch: Wrap one-inch sections of hair around a medium flatiron, alternating the direction each spiral.
“You’re just kind of haphazardly wrapping pieces and dropping them,” says Harry Josh, a hairstylist and spokesperson for John Frieda. “When you shake them out you’ll get a really nice, loose, ropy wave and it’ll hold all day.”

Bangs and Bobs: The 2010 hair trend seems to center around a little 80's vibe (think Rihanna's half shaved look). Lets face it, unless you live in LA and have a pack of photpgraphers following you this really isn't a practical look. However the bowl cut bangs and bob combo helps give you a little bit of that edge. This is my favorite hairstyle!
Here are the hairstyles Jilly is considering...comment and let us know what you think is the best one!

Option One: long bangs with layers

I like the Cameron Diaz...only your hair won't be so stringy! But I like the layers.

So will you be going with the reader's choice?
I say bald is beautiful and I think Moo would agree.

Hilarious. Bald IS beautiful...I agree.

I like Option One.

I think you should start with a side swoop, like Cameron Diaz, and if you like them enough then be bold and cut them like Reese Whitherspoon. I have wanted bags like that for a while but just don't have the guts to do it!
