Get with the program. It’s 2014. Winter be gone, hello Spring!
by: Dana Weimer
The plus, the minus, the dos, and the don’ts. Sheesh, we should be required to walk around with a How To Perfect book on The Art of Hair. Swan diving head first into April, we are clearly fast-forward into 2014. The trendy year of long hair, short hair, medium hair, loose curls and low maintenance is showcased from Glamour (US & UK!) and InStyle Magazine to Vogue, your hair salon to your friends on Facebook & Instagram. We are in fast lane of judgment and perfection.
I don’t consider this a How-To guide (mostly because I’m not a doer, I’m a watcher – I’m not a stylist – trust my judgment, not my techniques!), but more as a snippet of IDEAS. A brainstorm session. When we wake up in the morning, the last thing we want to do is… A.) Think and B.) Do your hair. Continue on for easy ways to get that maintenance-free up-do, down-do, beachy wave, out the door Look!
Attached at the end of this blog are links from InStyle Magazine & Glamour UK. I used them as my own guide to post this (to be quite honest), but I also used it to browse through top of the line products, get ideas, and find suggestions for what daily questions and concerns cross my path. From how to add moisture, repair split ends, add texture, and maintain color – I have a field day on my own by “researching” and doing my own homework. I encourage you to do yours too! Please copy & paste, or click each link, they are all different and extremely helpful.
