When we were young, we all heard the story of Rapunzel’s long hair, but when it comes to long curly hairstyles, Jennifer Freeman (My Wife and Kids) has what every straight haired woman wants. Beautiful, long ringlets that are completely natural. That is one of the really great things about having long hair. There are so many different hairstyles to experiment with. One really good look is putting it up and letting a few long strands escape to give you that romantic look. Another awesome hairstyle for long curly hair is to separate a side strip about an inch wide and roll it and secure it in the back with a hair barrette. Do this with both sides and it gives you that Juliet (Romeo and Juliet) look.

Joss Stone’s Long Curly Hairstyles:

Joss Stone, a popular blues singer with a head full of long, blond curls, loves wearing her hair down. Recently, she did a cover picture for Elle magazine for a later issue. She has loose curls that seem to cascade down her back. Joss is the all American look with the blond hair that she sometimes wears straight but seems to prefer the wavy look.

This look can be achieved by using a good mousse and curling hair with a curling iron. The smaller the barrel of the iron, the smaller curls you will have. Use a good hairspray to lock in curls, preferably one that does not leave a heavy feel to the hair. This will accomplish the long curly hairstyles that are so popular today.

Long Curly Hairstyles From Pamela Anderson and Reese Witherspoon:

Pamela Anderson is another blond that loves wearing her tresses down and flowing. She sometimes wears a full pony tail which is timeless when it comes to hairstyles. She loves doing her own hairstyles rather than having them done for her. Pamela’s hair is more wavy than curly. Long waves are really easy to accomplish. They can be done with a curling iron with a big barrel. Curling only about half of your hair or a little more creates a long flowing wave.

Reese Witherspoon’s long hair is the perfect example of going from straight to curly in a matter of minutes. Twisting hair is a popular way to add those waves to straight hair. Sectioning off small areas, twist the hair with your fingers and lightly spray it, give it a few minutes and let it go. You will have beautiful spiral curls. She sometimes wears it up with a loose look to the sides which is quite sophisticated looking.

From wavy to lots and lots of curls, long hair is really fun to style. You can create any look that you want. If permanent curls are your passion, a professional perm can be done to add bounce and pizzazz to your locks. Several products are made to control frizz, so your hair looks its very best. Long, curly hairstyles are timeless, beautiful to look at, and add glamour to your look.

One subject that doesn’t get a lot of attention is men’s hairstyles. Of course, once upon a time, men had just a handful of styles to pick from. Now men are paying a lot more attention to their looks, so it’s important to make sure that their hair looks just as good as the rest of them. Here are some tips for getting a great hairstyle this year.

Just like with women’s hairstyles, men need to pay attention to their hair type when choosing a cut. Otherwise, you could find your hair looking unexpectedly flat, or developing cowlicks and curls where you least want them to be. A style that looks great on a magazine model won’t necessarily work for you, unless you have the same hair type. Your stylist can help you choose the style that will work best for the kind of hair you have.

Length options for men used to be short and shorter. Modern styles offer a better range of options for men’s hairstyles, while still looking respectable for work or school. Consider a tousled, layered look if you like your hair at a medium length. Working a little gel or other product into your hair can make it look a little windblown without being messy. Bangs pushed forward over the forehead can be seen on many models and celebrities.

Long hair is also stylish now, although in this case, long means little more than shoulder length. Remember that longer hair requires more upkeep to look its best. Neglect could cause your hair to look dirty when it’s not, or unkempt.

If you prefer your hair shorter, but don’t want to look staid or boring, try a cut that’s a little spiky, or go for a slick retro option. Men’s hairstyles from the 30s and 40s have been making a comeback, and give you a chance to sport a classic look that’s a little different.

Medium length hair naturally suits different face shapes since there isn’t too much hair to overwhelm one’s features but just enough to lend them definition. For instance, if you have a long and thin face, then you should probably give the long straight hair look a miss. You can understand this by taking a look at some of Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest pictures where she simply looks stunning in her medium length hairstyle with hair feathered lightly over her cheek bones and forehead.

There are also other different kinds of face shapes, these include round, oblong, oval, square, and heart shaped. Here is a brief look at the various styles that suit the above mentioned face shapes:

If you have an oval face, then you have the prospect of wearing just about any hairstyle, be it medium, short or long and if your face shape is oblong or rectangular it would be wise to choose a medium or short cut such as a ‘bang’ hairstyle. This would lend a gentler and softer look to your face. Celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Mariah Carey have oval shaped faces whereas the faces of Stephanie Seymour and Janet Jackson are oblong in shape.

A medium hairstyle that best suits a round face would be one that is swept back away from the face while creating more fullness and height at the crown. Perfect role models for this type of style are Christina Ricci and Kate Winslet. For a heart shaped face, a chin length cut can do wonders while long hair should be avoided altogether. A similar style is also recommended for those with square faces. The names of some famous heart-shaped faces include Claudia Schiffer and Michelle Pfeiffer and those of some square-faced stars include Demi Moore and Sandra Bullock.

Whichever medium hairstyle you choose for your face type, it is important to keep in mind that your personality is just as important as your face when it comes to making this decision.

Layering is another option you might consider as this can have a softening effect on the face.

When it comes down to it, other than the drying time, medium length hair can take almost as much looking after as long hair.

After you have chosen your wedding theme and the perfect wedding dress for your special occasion, you should start planning your special bride hairstyle that is complimentary to you and your wedding dress. It is wise to plan carefully for this, as the brides hairstyle is one of the most important of all the presentations on your wedding day.

You will want to decide if you will have your hair cut, or get a perm or perhaps colored to achieve the look you want for your wedding. You should be planning your bridal hairstyle months in advance, so you have time to try different ideas and make up your mind about the issues that stem from producing your prefect look.

Important Bride Hairstyles Tips!

In the six months prior to your wedding, you should have your hair trimmed regularly to protect your hair from split ends. Also, avoid unnecessary use of styling aids and heated hair appliances. Hot oil treatments and head massages are good for conditioning your hair. However, if your hair has been chemically treated, you should take special care to use the right kind of shampoo and conditioner to bring out the best condition of your hair.

In the three-month period before your wedding, you will need to locate a good hairstylist to do your bridal hairstyle. If you already have a regular hairstylist, it is best to stick with her or him since she or he already is familiar with you and your hair. If you do not have a regular hair stylist, it is best for you to ask around, find out what others have experienced with their own hairstylists. Once you have chosen the hairstylist that is best for you, you then should make an appointment with your stylist for a wedding hair plan.

Be sure to have a look at current pictures of hairstyles with your stylist to help you choose the bridal hairstyle that fits perfectly with you and your wedding dress.

Tips For Getting Bride Hairstyle Results:

1. Be sure to wash your hair the night before the wedding rather than the day of your wedding since freshly washed hair is much harder to work with.

2. Arrive at your hairstyling appointment on time no matter what else is going on, so that there is plenty of time for your hairstylist to do his or her job.

3. Try to be natural in the appearance of your bridal hairstyle rather than to be outrageous or difficult.

4. On the day of your wedding, with your beautiful creation of beauty in gown and hair, remember to smile.

With these tips your bride hairstyle will certainly be something to remember.
