There is a world of difference between working with curly hair and working with straight hair. The techniques that are utilized vary greatly, depending on the curliness or straightness of the hair. But what makes the hair curly or straight? Hair texture is hereditary in most cases, although it is possible for curly-haired parents to have a child with poker-straight hair. The degree of curl depends largely on the shape of the follicle, or the pore from out of which the hair grows. A round follicle will produce straight hair. A follicle that is oval in shape will produce wavy hair. Curly hair occurs when the shape of the follicle is flat.
Cutting curly hair requires a greater degree of skill than cutting straight hair, in my opinion. The problem lies in the fact that when curly hair is wet it lengthens considerably. That means however you cut the hair when it is wet, it will always “shrink” when it is dry. This is true with all hair, but more visible with hair that is curly. Another challenge when cutting curly hair is getting it to lay right. Curly hair often has a propensity to stick out when cut incorrectly. To avoid this, I never cut in the typical straight-across manner. Instead, I use a technique called “notching”. When you notch the hair, you get a softer edge, similar to the result you get with a razor cut. Both notching and razor-cutting work well on wavy and curly hair because they don’t leave a blunt edge on the hair.
Going natural, or as I like to say, “back to the natural texture” for me has been an off-and-on process for the last ten years. I also noticed that my hairline was thinning-out, but still kept perming. My mother (a non-permie) started working as a shampoo girl at a local salon and would relate to me, she’d witnessed many scalps that were damaged by years of perming. I still was not ready to give up perming. “Good Hair.” I was inspired, but I was a little disillusioned by the fact that she still had a texturizer applied to her hair, even though she seemed to advocate the discontinuance of perms. After reading her book, I examined my scalp and counted too many small bald spots, still I kept up the perming process. Her book did stay on my mind. When I was in public I would always notice women whose hairlines were damaged.
I did stop perming, mainly due to low funds, but kept up the press and curl. I still did not feel totally comfortable maintaining that process because my hair stayed up in a bun most of the time. One day, my crack-addicted sister (after hitting me up for some money) said, “You look like a ole woman with that bun, girl. You need to fix yourself up.” Now, how could a crack-head tell me how to look? It was ironic, that statement was coming from a self-absorbed person caught up in an addiction. However, it did hit a nerve. My “addiction” or need to have my hair straight wasn’t mentally help me either.
The gradient is the perfect cut to energize and organize a hairstyle. Tapered hair lightly, detented with transitions neat, cropped version of pixie, medium between ear and chin, with or without fringe: the choices seem limitless, and it is not all! The gradient is among the few cuts that can grow a couple of weeks without losing its structure.
Skin care and styling your perfect haircut gradient based on three factors: the volume at the roots, spikes healthy and well-defined levels.
Gradient and volume
Everything starts washing with a shampoo and conditioner specially designed to boost hair volume and give the roots spring. There are also volumizing mousse to apply to towel-dried hair.
You have straight hair? Use the hairdryer with its tip diffuser. Place the round brush to dry under the section, then stretch the roots to the ends. If you have medium length hair or long, you can also place the brush on the end tips to make brushing Frederique outward.
You have probably been in the same situation as myself: You really need your haircut or color retouched but are feeling kind of cheap. You rethink this very simple concept over and over again. Do I spend my money on getting pampered and feeling relaxed (while getting that awesome haircut and color you see on every Hollywood A-lister) and go to that kind of pricey spa salon or do you say “What the heck I’ll just make the appointment at that regular salon and be done with it”. Even though you swore a month ago you’d never go back there even if your life depended on it. (Bad choice.) So, here you are again in the same chair with the same unfriendly, no personality stylist you’ve had before, asking you the same question about 3 times now. You reply “Well as I said BEFORE I’m going out this weekend with my girlfriends.” All of a sudden you feel a slight tug on your head while she’s cutting it. Your thinking, “She better have done that on accident or no tip for her!” Then a smile comes across her face and she starts making small talk. You wonder if she read your mind when you said “No tip for you!” Anyways, the time has finally come to look in the mirror at your new do. It’s….good, you reply. Not the fabulous cut or sparkling color I showed you in that hairstyle magazine but I guess I can’t expect wonders. (I said to myself of course, I’m not that rude!) But, it will do for now. And yes, I gave her a tip.
Most clients’ bangs grow out before the haircut does causing them tress duress. I like to show my clients how to do a home bang trim so they don’t butcher them. First I comb down the entire bang section, making sure to get all of the hair that is meant to be the bangs. Do this on dry hair only because wet hair will shrink when dry making the bangs much shorter than desired. Take each side of the bangs at the corners and gather them to the middle pinching them at the bridge of the nose. You now have a small point of hair that is the entire bang section that can be cut in one straight across small clip. Cut at the level of the bridge of the nose, any higher than this level may leave the hair too short. The bangs will fall longer at the sides of the face and slightly shorter in the center. I find this arching shape to be more pleasing than the straight across line look. For added texture and softness to the ends you can point cut an 1/8″ up to ½” into the ends closing the scissors as you pull away from the ends. This quick fix works well with practice and will get you through until you see your stylist again.

What advice for coloring kit?
Products “houses” are now very good, then you are not forced to go to a hairdresser.
Always trust the indications on the box. There are three types of staining kit: type 1, 2 or 3. These “types” correspond to the power of color. And staining with type 1 provides simple reflections. The coloring of type 2 can dye their hair for a period of six to eight weeks (tones). And color type 3 represents the permanent color. Before buying the box, be sure to wrap a strand of hair on it to compare the color. If you hesitate between two colors, prefer the lighter to avoid the tragedies.
Hairstyle according to face shapes, hairstyles for oval face…
The oval face is the most searched for women because it represents softness, sensuality and delicacy. The oval face is the opposite of angular faces.
Normally an oval face has no trouble finding a haircut that sounds correct. Ladies you have therefore a wide range of hairstyles.
You might choose a short cut that will highlight the soft shapes of your face. You can also crimping for waving and therefore have a long cut with a slight gradient.
Avoid too large a volume or too long hair cut
I’m looking for a new, exciting beauty salon. If you were going to pick out a new salon, what would you look for and what questions would you ask the salon owner or the stylist?
Wow! Hair decisions have so much potential for trauma. Finding someone you trust to cut your hair is up there with finding the right dress for the Oscars, as far as I’m concerned.
1. Ask someone whose haircut you like where she gets it cut and who cuts it.
2. If you absolutely can’t find someone you know whose hair you like, feel free to ask absolute strangers. People are always willing to talk about their hair. It’s pretty flattering to have a complete stranger admire your ‘do.
Straight, fine hair needs a bit of razor cutting or texturizing to achieve contour and body. Hairdresser Diane Jeep Ries shows you how to combine technique with free-form artistry.
This haircut will be based on a bob, but then updated using a technique called destructuring.
TOOLS – I’ll be using a thinning blade, texturizing or chunking shears, and a razor with a guard. The razor is only good for two haircuts. If used more, the hair may be damaged.
This hair style is very popular among teens now-a-days. This hair style has a punk look, and is very popular among teens. This hair style was traditionally sported by teens who like to spend reluctant lifestyle, and spend their life in depression and melancholy.
Scene Hair Cut
This hair cut is similar to a layer hair cut, but the hair remains layered only at the front. Scene hair cut makes the person look very cute and girly. This hair cut is made by cutting very fine layers from the front of the hair.
Wavy Layered Styles
If you have naturally wavy hair, or want to go with some wavy style then use these ideas. For this haircut you will need medium or long hair. To get this style get some layers done near your crown, and lots of layers near the end of the hair, and cut in such a way that the hair ends look tapering.
If you have naturally curly, frizzy hair, or coarse thick permed hair that is out of control, this is what Beauty experts do to control it:
- Take about a dime size portion of Paul Mitchell The Conditioner and 2-3 drops of Varnish by A-G. Mix them together on your palm and apply on damp, clean hair and work through evenly. Distribute from roots to ends. Let dry naturally.
- If you want a little more control to style your usually frizzy hair, try adding as dime size portion of styling lotion to the above mixture. Moisture Mousse by Focus 21 is better for this purpose.
From deep conditioning to the right diet, experts—stylist Paul Labrecque, dermatologist Fredric Brandt, and nutritional consultant Oz Garcia—reveal what it takes to have the hair you’ve always wanted.
This is the time of year we give to those we love. What if one of your loved ones was a child who had lost all of their hair and might never grow it again? Of course you would give whatever you could to help. I would like to challenge you to help a child you may never meet. Giving to that child would show the true meaning of Christmas and could be as easy as getting a haircut.

The right haircut or the right hair color is as individual a decision as what heels to wear. But everyone—young, old, blonde, or brunette—wants one thing when it comes to how that hair looks: Healthy, glossy, shiny.
“Dull, flat hair is one of my clients’ biggest complaints,”says Gary Howse, co-owner of the trendy downtown Seattle salon, Gary Manuel, where local celebs and Microsoft royalty go for up-to-the-minute cuts, color, and styling. Howse says major issues—like hormonal imbalances—are rarely the problem: “Little things—like brushing wet hair too hard or pulling it back too tightly—eventually turn into big problems, like a head full of broken hair.” Broken hair means one thing: very little, if any, shine.

The biggest mistake people make? “Perms,” says Howse. “The chemicals raise the cuticle and leave irreparable crooks and turns on the hair shaft. It’s like shining a flashlight down a crooked hallway—it’s impossible to light up the entire thing.” For the same reason, he avoids over-coloring already color-weary hair, and seals the cuticle with a color gloss. “It’s my favorite product,” he says. “There’s nothing better for instant shine.”Celebrity stylist Paul Labrecque, whose clients include Natasha Richardson, Linda Fiorintino, and Rosie O’Donnell, believes that brushing (done gently) and less washing are the best ways to keep hair polished and healthy. “Most people don’t allow their hair to get dirty and end up over-drying it,” says Labrecque. “Less is more when it comes to shampooing—too much and you lose essential oils.”Dr. Fredric Brandt, a dermatologist with offices in New York and Miami, prescribes just the opposite: more shampooing, less brushing. “There’s no such thing as washing your hair too often,” he says. “It’s great for the scalp and absolutely does not cause hair loss.” Dr. Brandt thinks it’s how you handle your hair that matters, which means regular trims, very little brushing, and the fewer the ponytails the better.“It’s simple,” says nutritional consultant Oz Garcia, whose high protein, low carbohydrate diets have changed the lives of everyone from Nicole Miller to Robert DeNiro. “If you eat a healthy diet, your hair has more luster. And that doesn’t mean eating only fat-free— people whose diets are too low in fat tend to have dull, dry hair.“On the following pages, our experts offer advice on how to make healthy, shiny hair your own.
