Choosing Your Wedding Hairstyle - What You Should Remember


As a bride, you definitely want to look your best and all eyes will be on you all through the day. To look gorgeous from head to toe is a must and your hair is one of those things you should take seriously besides choosing a great looking gown. There are long lists of best bridal hairstyles and remembering a few things can help you make the right decision with your wedding hairstyles.

Match the hair with the gown

This is one of the most important things if you do not want to end up looking as though your hair is competing with the gown. Striking a match between the two is what you should focus on. If you have a modern chic dress, select a sleek blow out or hold your hair back. For a gown that has a country look or peasant dresses and high waist, frocks choose curls for your hair and you can add tiny flowers to complete the curly look. Dramatic updos on the other hand can turn out great for big ball gown type of dresses. Whatever you choose should match with the type of dress you have selected. The tip here is to choose your dress first before then finding the perfect hairstyle.

The length of your hair matters

This is something most brides forget even though it is very important. Some styles are best for long hair while others are more suitable for short hair. Wedding hairstyles for short hair are more popular, but you can also rock your wedding with amazing wedding hairstyles for long hair. For short locks, a mini barrette and a pixie make very good chic and simple wedding looks but the choices are numerous. For longer locks, buns, barrettes and petals are some amazing ideas. Your hairdresser can come in handy in giving you choices depending on the length of your hair. Fashion magazines can also be helpful sources for any length of hair.

Remember the veil

Apart from making sure that your wedding hairstyle matches with the dress, also remember the veil and how suitable the hairstyle is going to be for your veil. If you have chosen a style whose charm is lost under the veil, you can consider wearing fascinators which are back and trending. There are also fancy short bridal hats that can be worn but make sure that you choose the veil before you go for the hairstyle to keep limits at bay.

Understand your hair type

This is very important because even the simplest hairstyles look great on particular hair types. Very short hair or hair that is very fine can be tricky to work with but there are styles that best suit this kind of hair. Same goes for curly hair, which can be tricky to straighten and make skinny. Know which hairstyles your hair will hold without problems. You should actually consider booking a trial with your hairdresser to help make a great choice beforehand.

6 Fall Hair Colors For You to Try Now

Nirvana Bleach blonde, anyone?


Shine Bright
Fall is a natural time to be bolder and more daring. Brown predicts jewel colors, plums, reds, and darker pinks will be all the rage when the weather finally starts to cool down. “Think Kim Kardashian’s dark blue hair color that she’s been wearing,” she says. If dark blue isn’t your beat, you can also try rose golds and light purple tones.


Chestnut & Cinnamon
Why mess with a good thing? Spiced reddish browns like chestnut and cinnamon are on-trend season after season—for good reason. “They add warmth and work great on most skin tones,” explains Brown. And they're also versatile: Try a single process like Issa Rae or as an ombré accent on a darker base, Brown suggests.


Honey, Honey
Apart from being one of Jessica Alba’s most classic films, honey is a smart option for blondes and brunettes alike. “We’ve been seeing a lot of honey styles, but I think it will continue this fall only a little darker and more dynamic,” says Brown. The slightly warmer tone is a solid option for blondes like Saoirse Ronan who don’t want to go full brunette but feel like switching things up.


Strawberry Shortcake
What's cool about this shade is that both blondes and redheads can pull it off. If you're on the darker side of blonde, earthy streaks of tawny auburn are a revelation. If you're already in the gingery family like Emma Stone, buttery highlights are a great option for a bit of depth.


Cool in Copper
“And for those that like a deeper brighter red, bright coppers is a vibrant and bold opton,” says Brown. Coppery tones like Madelaine Petsch's draw attention to the eyes—the contrast is fetching—and work particularly well against warm skin tones.

If you’re feeling even bolder, Brown suggests taking the plunge and going straight to orange like Caroline Hjelt, and Paloma Faith.


Nirvana Blonde
We’ve seen a very pale all-over blonde this summer and Brown doesn’t think that will let up anytime soon. Nirvana blondes might go a bit darker and softer but it will still smell like teen spirit come fall.

The Biggest Hair Color Trends For 2018



Changing your hair color can be as subtle as a few highlights or as drastic as a coat of bright purple. We’ve seen all colors of the rainbow surge in popularity the past few years, but for 2018, hair color is looking much more laid-back. That’s not to say that there aren’t some popular hair colors that Mama wouldn’t gasp over, but the hair color trends for 2018 are less drastic than you might think. Rich colors like deep burgundy and midnight blue are ideal for girls with brunette or black hair that want a color with that something’s-different-but-I-can’t-put-my-finger-on-it quality, and there are plenty of color trends for blondes to try out, like rose blonde, buttery blonde, and even cream soda. If you’re not looking to dye your entire head of hair, 2018’s hair color trends will be your new inspiration. Beautiful foil-free techniques, subtle face-framing highlights, and babylights are in. This year’s hair color ideas are either dark and sultry or warm and cozy. Whether you’re consistently daring with hair color or you want to play with highlights for the first time, these 2018 hair color trends have options for every salon-goer and home-dyer.

These versatile options range from subtle to rich and sultry.

Rose Blonde
Pinterest/Kelly Massias

Rose Blonde

L’Oréal Paris just named its hair colors of the year, and Rose Blonde was at the top of the list. Millennial pink has taken over every other aspect of our lives, and this rose gold hue is its move into the hair color world. The color can sway more pink or more blonde, but it’s the fine line between the two colors that gives the shade an ethereal look.

Subtle Face-Framing Highlights
Pinterest/OnSugar

Subtle Face-Framing Highlights

With the hand-painted and foil-free coloring techniques that are in, highlights are looking less chunky and more natural. The lightest face-framing highlights give a flattering look that the sun could have produced itself.

Charcoal
Instagram/che.r.mariano

Charcoal

If you’re starting to gray naturally, don’t head to the salon to cover it up! Smoky grays and charcoals are in this season, and it’s a welcome diversion from the too-bright “unicorn” colors of 2016 and 2017.

Cinnamon Caramel Swirl
Instagram/cristen_smith

Cinnamon Caramel Swirl

This hair color trend sounds like a cozy holiday drink we’d like to try (recipe idea!). Perfect for brunettes who want a trendy upgrade, this highlighted look combines tones of red and caramel bronde.

Wine
Pinterest

Wine

Whether you call it mulled wine, burgundy, eggplant, deep mahogany, or dark maroon, this sultry shade is in. It’s an easy color for girls with black or brunette hair to transition with if they’re trying out color for the first time, and it can range from barely-there color to full crimson.

Pearl Blonde
Instagram/constancerobbins

Pearl Blonde

Not so drastic as the bleach blonde every celebrity has rocked the past few years, pearl blonde is the softer side of platinum. This dreamy shade has a sheen like that coveted heirloom pearl necklace in your jewelry box.

Midnight Blue
Pinterest/Number76 Hair Salon

Midnight Blue

Jewel tones are in for nails, clothing, and in 2018—hair. Denim blues that walk the line between blue and black are here, and girls with naturally black hair have got to try this subtle change. Similar to the darkest blues, deep teals and emerald greens are also coming in style.

Babylights
Pinterest

Babylights

Although babylights have been around for a few years, they’ll be much more mainstream in 2018. Created to have the beauty of a child’s fine, sun-kissed, non-damaged hair (per the name), these softer than soft highlights are the prettiest and least drastic way to update your ’do.

Cream Soda
Instagram/Mane Addicts

Cream Soda

Nope, not the bottled drink you enjoyed during the summers of your childhood. This golden hair color is a honey-hued spot between brunette and blonde that’ll make your skin tone glow.

Rainbow Roots
Instagram/cayliebaby

Rainbow Roots

Rather than going full rainbow, the trend will be to just die roots a color and have it melt into your natural hair color. This would work well with darker tones and brunette or black hair and pastels with blonde. Since Selena Gomez just debuted bleach blonde hair with her natural dark roots, we have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot of root trends in 2018.

Buttery Blonde
Instagram/olaplex

Buttery Blonde

Blonde trends are big for 2018, and this warm blonde is more natural looking than the ashy and bleach blondes that have been popular. Buttery blondes will be ideal for the spring and summer.

Chocolate Mauve
Pinterest/All Things Hair

Chocolate Mauve

Although “chocolate mauve” sounds like a new Starbucks creation, it’s going to be one of the most popular hair colors of 2018. This subtle look is ideal for brunettes who want to dip their toes in the hair color water without diving in.

Copper

Copper

This burnt orange, coppery hair color is the next big way to do red. Brunettes or strawberry blondes can do the look in a subtle way with highlights and lowlights.

This Is How Often You Need A Haircut Based on Your Style and Texture


By Lexi Novak

"When my ends get so dry that I can't disguise them with hair oil." "When I start getting knots that don't come out, no matter how much conditioner I use." "When I just can't take it any more." Ask someone when they know it's time for a haircut and these are a sampling of the answers you might receive. Lots of us have heard that we should go every six to eight weeks, but one rule can't possibly apply to all hair textures and lengths. Here's how to know when it's really, truly time for a trim.

If You Have Tight, Coarse Curls
12 weeks

"For curlier or kinkier textures, the general rule of thumb is quarterly haircuts," says hairstylist Anthony Dickey. "That's about the time it takes to get single-strand knots or split ends." If you want to preserve or grow out your length, ask your hairstylist to remove a quarter inch or less at each visit — that will ensure there's always more growth than the amount you're cutting.

If You Have Virgin Hair
12 weeks

Another great thing about being a young person? Their unprocessed hair is basically the healthiest it will ever be. If your hair has never been colored and you haven't yet exposed it to the rigors of frequent hot-tool usage (and you're in your early 20s), you can go up to three months between trims without any risk of looking frayed, says hairstylist Nathaniel Hawkins.

If You Have Long Hair That's Wavy Or Straight
8 to 12 weeks

If you treat your long, uniform-length hair like your skin — moisturizing with masks, minimizing heat damage — you can wait 8 to 12 weeks until your next cut. The style doesn't have a specific shape that requires frequent maintenance, and if it's properly cared for your hair shouldn't split or break too quickly.

If You Have Fine Or Medium Curls
8 to 12 weeks

Because many people with curls tend to be vigilant about keeping their hair hydrated, it's usually healthy, says Hawkins. Two or three months is a safe break between cuts. Those with spirals on the finer side should keep the rotation closer to eight weeks, though. Too much length can make thin curls look stringy and stretched.

If You Have Long Layers
6 to 8 weeks

Ironically, this is the only category hairstylists actually suggest for the prevailing six- to eight-week rule. It's long enough to let your hair grow for length and short enough to keep face-framing pieces in place.

If You Have Lots of Different Layers
6 weeks

Week one: Layers have a textured, piecey look. Week four: Layers have a lived-in, sexy-rough look. Week eight: Layers have a wonky and ragged look. Heavily cut styles with lots of layers require six weeks to keep the lengths fresh.

If You Have a Bob Or Lob
6 weeks

"Clean, sharp lines grow out nicely, so geometric or A-line bobs without any nape graduation can go six weeks," says Hawkins. "Those cuts also don't tend to have layers in the crown that will lose their fullness."

If You Have Fine Hair That's Wavy Or Straight
4 to 6 weeks

Fine hair can be a fickle pain in the ass. You can go weeks with it looking pretty damn swell, and then you wake up one morning and it's a sad, limp head of meh. "The challenge with fine hair is the need to constantly reshape it without cutting too much off," says Hawkins, who advises waiting at least four but no more than six weeks to keep it in check.

If You Have Short Hair
4 weeks

Bowl, pixie, disconnected undercut — whatever you've got, growth will start to dilute the style, so it needs a trim every four weeks. That may seem like a big salon commitment, but a monthly appointment is usually easier to schedule and plan for than in-between timing, like six or ten weeks.

If You Have Damaged Hair
4 weeks

The bad news is there's no way to undo damage from chemical processing, coloring, or heat styling. The good news is regular monthly cuts will gradually phase out the busted hair while still allowing enough time for healthy roots to grow in.

If You Have Bangs
2 weeks

If your bangs are more of the side-swept, wispy variety, you can probably stretch out your trims a little longer. But strong, blunt, heavy, straight: If any of these words describe your fringe, a quick pruning every other week will keep the look tight.

BEDROOM.HAIR ft Lilia K


Everyday hair tutorial via @liliaa_k using BEDROOM.HAIR and SHIMMER.ME BLONDE. 

Products Used :

1. TEXTURE.COMB by @love_kevin_murphy : Specially created to control your hair while maintaining texture and movement.
2. Clips @forever21
3. BEDROOM.HAIR by @love_kevin_murphy. Helps to define curls and waves with a lasting hold. Also helps to add texture and body.
4. SHIMMER.ME.BLONDE by @love_kevin_murphy. Shine treatment with color reflectors. Although it is specified to work on blonde hair (helping control against yellow in blonde hair) It works great on all shades of hair due to the mica particles acting like little mirrors that enhance shine. I use it on wet hair to help with blow drying or on dry hair as a finishing tool as in the video.
5. Curling iron : This type or iron is not bad at all. It is made from tourmaline and ceramic so I find it doesn’t damage the hair as much.
