Hair! No matter what hairstyle you prefer and what color your hair is, we all have certain ways we like to wear our hair.  Even bald looks beautiful.

Are you looking for an easy, yet subtle change to a new you merely by your hairstyle? If so, then I suggest that you consider bangs! Adding bangs to your hairdo is a minor way to make a major change!

Bangs, also known as fringe, are an amazing way to change your look. Bangs can help to frame your face, whether you have short, medium or long hair. Create a banging new you with bangs.

Bangs can look sweet, saucy, sexy, playful, feminine and fun, all rolled into one. Bangs are a high fashion statement, whether the bangs end above the eyebrow, directly at the eyebrow line, below the eyebrow, or slide elegantly over one eyebrow.

Bangs Fashion Tip: If you are cutting your hair and bangs are new to you, it is best to cut the bangs a bit longer than you would prefer, and slowly decrease the length until the bangs are at the length of your liking.

In the realm of bangs, there are many options:

  1. Side-Swept Bangs: These bangs generally look soft and feminine, and flatter the face. A portion of the forehead is visible, and the side-swept bangs blend in with your longer hair.
  2. Blunt Bangs: Blunt bangs are cut straight across the forehead, and are generally worn thick. Blunt bangs look best when cut directly at the eyebrow line, or hanging below the eyebrows, yet above the eyelids.
  3. Wispy Bangs: Wispy bangs are very thin, where strands of the bangs hang over the forehead, while other areas of the forehead are visible.
  4. Pixie Bangs: These bangs accent short hair styles fabulously. Pixie bangs are extremely short, often jagged, and cover only to top of the forehead.
  5. Asymmetrical Bangs: These bangs are worn to where the cut is not even. Portions of the bangs are longer than other areas of the bangs. These bangs, if cut right, have a choppy appearance.
  6. Curved Bangs: Curved bangs are similar to blunt bangs, where most of the forehead is covered, however the center area of the bangs are shorter than the left and right areas of the bangs.

Bangs Fun Fact: If you wear blunt or straight cut bangs, and you want to occasionally change the hairstyle, part your hair down the middle and separate the bangs, bushing one side of the bangs to the right of your face, and the other side of the bangs to the left of your face.

I feel that bangs help to accessorize a haircut in much the same way as jewelry and hair trinkets help to accessorize your outfits. One positive of bangs is that they can be worn well with any hair color, any hairstyle and any hair length. Also, depending on the texture of your hair, there is some type of bangs that will highlight your hairdo.

Bangs not only frame your face, but they help to bring out the allure of your eyes. Bangs are also easy to style. If you prefer to wear your bangs straight, yet you yearn for an evening change, you can add a soft curl or wave to your bangs. A slight variation can bring on a stunning change.  When you prefer to go back to straight bangs, merely wet the bangs and they will dry straight.

Wahlah, easy, breezy, beautiful bangs!

Bangs will always be popular.

Bangs, whether worn short or long, soft or hard, thick or thin, wispy or straight, are always stylish! Glamour girl elegance with bouncy bangs!

Bangs are a banging, blue ribbon way to make a fashion statement!

How we choose to wear our hair reveals much more about us than our basic personality. The texture, shine, vitality and thickness of our hair can reveal if we are vibrant and healthy, or perhaps show that our bodies are lacking in essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Often times our health on the inside of us is revealed on the outside through the condition of our hair.

Gorgeous, shiny hair is intrinsically linked to beauty! Did you know that each strand of your hair is a protein filament that grows from the follicles around the dermis layer of your skin? This is no surprise, as one of the main nutrients our bodies need to provide us with the shimmery, healthy looking head of hair that we crave is protein. Two other nutrients needed to feed your hair from the inside out are Vitamin B12 and iron. Also, drinking lots of water will help your hair to grow and maintain a radiant shine.

No matter how you cut and style your hair, we all have a certain basic hair type that we are born with: straight, wavy, curly and kinky/coiled. If you want to know your natural basic hair type, wash and condition your hair and then let it air dry, without brushing, blow drying or adding gels and mousse to your hair. Your hair will either dry straight, wavy, curly or kinked/coiled. Sometimes it’s fun to change your basic hair type using curling irons, hair straighteners, etc. but all hair types are beautiful and you should love the hair that you have!

If you adore your hair, yet prefer to change it up once in a while, let a Mobile Styles professional hair stylist doll up your hair with a cut, style, color change, highlight or weave. Your glorious head of hair will thank you for a much needed new look, which gives you a “new you!”

Steps to Ensure a Gorgeous, Shiny, Healthy Head of Hair:

1. Wash and Condition Your Hair: This doesn’t need be done everyday, but should be done on most days. When the shampoo instructions say “lather, rinse, repeat” you are better off to only lather once. Shampooing too much can strip your hair of essential natural oils needed for hair strength and shine.
2. Argan Oil Really Works: Use a shampoo and conditioner that contains argan oil, which will make your hair look shiny and healthy.
3. Vitamin E: Liquid Vitamin E applied to your scalp can help increase circulation to the scalp, which will make for stronger, shinier hair.
4. Use a Soft Bristle Brush: Combs and hard bristle brushes can tug at your hair, causing breakage and split ends. A soft bristle brush will prevent breakage and draw natural oils from your scalp to the ends of your hair.
5. Eat a Balanced, Healthy Diet: To ensure a healthy, happy, gorgeous, shiny head of hair your body needs protein, iron, Vitamin B12, Omega 3 fatty acids and water.

Feed your body, hair and skin from the inside out to obtain true health and glamour, and that, dear fashion divas, is what it’s all about.

It’s time to welcome in the sizzling, wonderful, long, exciting, crazy and lazy days of summer. Summer is my favorite season and brings us vacations, a break from school, long warm days and evenings, barbeques, beaches and fun in the sun. Summer is a glorious season that is revered by most everyone.

Although many people look forward to the warmer temperatures and getting to wear fashionable summer clothing (mainly shorts, sleeveless shirts, flip flops and baby doll dresses), there are lots of people who fear and loathe putting on the dreaded bathing suit. There is a perfect remedy for you. Whether you’re walking along the sand and surf, relaxing on a sailboat or cruise ship, or merely spending time at the beach, there are numerous cute, lightweight long or short dresses that work perfectly to conceal your body, yet allow you to move freely and still enjoy the radiant sunshine.

Surf, sand and fun in the sun. There are adorable beach dresses to suit the personal fashion taste of every woman!

For those of you that want to feel the thrill of your bare feet sinking into the sand, yet slip your body into a cool, cute dress, why not go with a sarong? A sarong is a large tube shape of material or length of fabric that is wrapped around the waist, thereby making a skirt. A sarong is generally fastened by tucking one corner of the fabric into the opposite end of the material, much like wrapping a beach towel around your waist. Sarongs can be worn with a bathing suit top, or if you prefer to cover your midriff section, a tube top or tank top. You can still enjoy the soothing effects of the sun without having to worry about a fit physique or a painful sunburn.

Some perfect dresses to wear to the beach are sarongs, maxi skirts, baby doll dresses and lightweight, cotton summer dresses. These dainty dresses are airy enough to allow you to breathe and move freely, yet they provide far more body coverage than a bathing suit.

For those of you that prefer to enjoy the beach in a sarong, even if worn over the bathing suit you have on, there is another way to tie the sarong to ensure it stays sung and tight, not falling off while you jog the beach or play frisbee or volleyball. Once you step into the sarong, bring the upper edge above the level of your naval (the hem of the sarong should be level with your ankles), position the head of the sarong at the center of the back and folds in the excess fabric from both sides to the front center where they overlap, and then secure the sarong by rolling the upper hem down over itself.

Basically wrap and roll…and unleash the beach babe rock ‘n roller that lives inside of you.
