Celebrity Haircut: How to Keep Celebrity Hair Color

Whether you’ve spent hours in a salon chair or 30 minutes at home, you want that color to last. Here’s how to keep your color vibrant and your roots in check.

Challenge: Fading
# Likely Culprit No. 1: Unsealed Cuticles

The protective outer layer (cuticle) of each strand of hair needs to remain intact to prevent color molecules from escaping; the more porous the hair, the more likely the hair color is to migrate out, explains Arun Nandagiri, a cosmetics chemist and the founder of Bria Research Laboratories, in Libertyville, Illinois.

Make It Last: Any color treatment should be followed by deep conditioning (don’t shampoo for 24 hours afterward). Then, two to three times a month, apply a deep-conditioning hair mask. In these masks, chemicals known as cationic polymers help keep the layers of hair closed like the shingles on a roof, says Nandagiri. And don’t use clarifying shampoos, which can strip color.

# Likely Culprit No. 2: Contact with Chemicals

The active ingredients in sunless tanners, makeup removers, and astringents can diminish hair color.

Make It Last: “Before using products on the face, gather strands of hair into a ponytail with a boar-bristle brush,” which is less damaging to hair, says Eric Fisher, owner of two salons in Wichita, Kansas. “Then avoid any large movements with the hands to prevent touching your hair.”

Challenge: Peekaboo Roots
# Likely Culprit: Stubborn Hairs or Growth (but not enough to warrant an appointment)

Nonporous hairs, which tend to be gray, make holding on to color difficult.

Make It Last: Hairstylist Cristophe, who owns five salons across the country, suggests asking your colorist to apply peroxide to roots first to make the hairs more porous and improve absorption.

Celebrity Hairstyles: 3 DIY Celebrity Hairstyles

If you are thinking of some DIY celebrity hairstyles for your important dates or appointments, you are in the right place. Here are three hot celebrity hairstyles you can whip up at home easily without any help from hairstylists.

The Chignon

This one's a classic prom hairstyles and has been seen more times on the red carpet recently than Cate Blanchette. This prom hairstyle is a favorite of ours for two reasons: First, it's super easy to do and, second, its looks chic without looking too "made up".

To create your own chignon smooth your hair back and gather it into a low lying ponytail and secure with clear elastic or one that closely matches your hair color. Now grab the ponytail and twist it like a telephone cord. Wrap the spiraled ponytail around the base of the ponytail pinning around the 'bun' as you go. Don't worry if a few end poke out that only adds character to the style. Secure well and give a very light mist of hairspray to hold.

The Half-Up Do

This celebrity hairstyle works on many levels. It's elegant enough to see you through even the most sophisticated of prom events but has a soft, romantic feel to it also. This one's also easy to do at home if you have a little hair skill but if not book an appointment'it'll be worth it.

To create this celebrity hairstyles set long hair in medium sized hot or Velcro rollers. Once the hair is set gently take hair out of rollers and finger comb to separate the curls. Now loosely gather the sides of your hair, make sure you leave some height at the top and secure it with a gorgeous hair clip just below the crown of your head. Pull a few tendrils out around the face to soften the look. Bangs should be swept to the side and hairspray should be kept to a minimum to ensure the hair still moves.

A Pin Curl Twist

This one's is a little trickier to do but the results are a very edgy yet elegant prom hairstyle. If you've got a good deal of hair savvy this one is possible but it's even easier if you team up with a friend and let them do it for you.

Start with hair that's been washed the night before'hair that's too clean is slippery and won't stay in place. Take a two inch wide section of your bangs and pin the hair back to the crown of your head. If you have short bangs use small jeweled hair clips to pin them back or two the side.

This is a cute haircut for naturally curly (big ringlets!) hair.

A black to dark brunette with thick hair. This works on an oval face because of the bangs and the shorter layer near the cheekbone. This would also work on a long face because of these layers which bring the eyes up.

Mid-length cut just past the collarbone.

Very cute hairstyle, plus, look how great it looks on someone with glasses!

Celebrity Haircut: Inverted Bob Haircut is Back

Finally, the inverted bob is back. This bob haircut is worn tapered around the edges to keep it close to your neck line. Give your bob more height and fullness at the top and let the back taper and stack. The inverted bob haircut can be tailored for personal style. It can be cut with asymmetrical layers, scrunched in layers of curls or curved in or out.

This inverted bob haircut is great for the busy woman, because styling is so easy and it is pretty easy to maintain.

The inverted bob hairstyle is appropriate for most ages, hair types and face shapes.

The type of cut you get should match your face shape. If you have a rounder face, you need to keep it longer in front.

Celebrity Hairstyles with Braid Fashion

Beauty world considers oval faces as ideal. Oval faces are highly proportioned and more balanced. They are just a bit wider Oval Face Shape Hairstylesat the cheekbones. Oval faces have a characteristic of narrowing towards the chin. Almost any type of hairstyle goes well with oval faces.

Great Hairstyles For Oval Faces
Oval faces are such versatile ones that they look graceful with different hairstyles. Here is helpful guidance for the oval faces to get that attractive look with their hairstyle.

  • Long or short, whatever maybe the length of the cut, oval faces look best with layered styles. Chin or cheekbones? Which one is that you want to highlight? Have layers just near them. You will love your hairstyle if you have an oval face.
  • Oval faces should avoid too much of spikes. Spikes do not go well with oval shaped faces.
  • Short hair best suits oval faces. It shows off facial features-your nose, eyes, chin and lips. Short hairstyles on oval faces really elegant and cute.
  • Very long hair does not suit oval faces that much. They may spoil the beauty of an otherwise pretty face.
  • Bangs swept along the sides of your face are very apt for an oval face. Long or short, heavy or not, bangs on an oval face are real hot.
  • If you have an oval face you can try out wild and gutsy hairdos without much worry. Even architectural hairstyles with that classy look are beautiful on oval faces.

Have you been ever surprised by the fact that whatever maybe the hairstyle all the fashion models look very pretty? Have you noticed their face shape? Yes. You are right. Most of the models have oval faces.

Any hairstyle is flattering on an oval face. Bob hairstyles, layered hairdos, up styles, pixie…lucky are the ones who have oval faces and they can wear any hairstyle they like.

Hairdo Tips For Oval Faces

Oval shape is an artistically balanced beautiful shape. If your face is of that shape flaunt it confidently. Keep the hair away fro the face and show off the face.

French braid hairstyle

Ponytail may be a simple hairdo. But for oval shaped faces this casual hairdo looks sweet.

All those oval faces, avoid heavy fringes. They are not right for you. It is best advised to avoid hairstyles that are too forward directed.
