Shag Haircuts Compliment All Face Shapes

The shag became popular in the 1970’s and some form of a shag haircut has been in the mainstream ever since. What makes a shag style so popular is that this cut can compliment any face shape. With an experienced stylist you can get a cut that is just right for you. Shags are easy to care for and offer you a wide variety of styling options. You can wear them flipped out, smoothed under or with a bit of styling paste for a messy bed-head look.
Modern Medium Shag

Shag haircuts are good for women of all ages. They can be youthful and sporty or give an older woman a more youthful appearance. The layers add volume and interest to your hair and keep the eye moving. Highlights and lowlights show up exceptionally well in a shag because of the many layers. If you think a shag has to be short, you are mistaken. This type of haircut comes in all lengths. Long shags look great on wavy hair or hair that has some natural curl. Medium length cuts give your hair plenty of movement and styling options and short shags are the ultimate in easy hair care.

A shag can be worn in business, at play or even spiked up and funky for a night out. The first place to start is with an experienced hairstylist. She will take into consideration your face shape and your lifestyle to give you a cut that is tailored just for you. Keep you hair healthy with quality salon products and styling aids. Avoid high heat appliances and always use a thermal protector when you blow dry, flat iron or curl your hair. Take a tip from our funky sisters of the 70’s and give a shag a try. You may find that it is one of your favorite styles and looks great on you.

Ken Paves Believes in Giving Back

Talented hairstylist Ken Paves is not only a leader in the beauty industry —  you can tell by his appearances on America’s Next Top Model and the Oprah Show, and his A-list of celebrity clients — but he is also a firm believer in giving back to the world the benefits of his success and helping people in need. He is a supporter of Operation Smile, a group of dedicated medical professionals who travel the world in an effort to assist people who live in poverty and have experienced the devastating effects of natural disasters. The doctors and medical professionals with Operation Smile also provide free surgery for children who are born with cleft lips and palettes helping them to lead normal lives. These doctors and medical professionals volunteer their time and services and Ken Paves is an ardent supporter of their efforts.

On Ken’s website he has issued a challenge to raise $25,000 for the Hair for Haiti campaign. This effort is being coordinated by UNICEF and many salons are participating in this effort. Besides taking donations, salons are offering their services at a reduced price and then donating the proceeds to the Hair for Haiti relief effort. Hair for Haiti uses the money raised to provide relief for the victims of the earthquake that devastated Haiti earlier this year. Fresh water, food, rebuilding efforts and health care are all provided through the funds raised by Hair for Haiti.

Ken Paves got his start after graduating from cosmetology school in 1994. He grew up in New Baltimore, a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. Soon after graduation he relocated to Miami and was an assistant to star stylist, Oribe. He moonlighted doing stripper’s hair and when Oribe saw how he could do big beautiful hair when his clients started showing up in the shop, his career took off. Before Jessica Simpson hired him in 1998 to be her stylist, he studied at the Vidal Sassoon Academy and at the Toni & Guy Institute.

While traveling with other celebrity stylists he worked on creating hairstyles for the couture collections of Valtenino, Versace and other designers. He has styled the hair of Jennifer Lopez for the movies Monster in Law, The Wedding Planner and Jersey Girl. He was also the hairstylist and makeup artist for Carmen Electra on the set of You Don’t Know Jack. Ken Pave has a successful line of products and hair extensions along with several highly successful salons. His love of beauty and desire to give back to help others makes him a truly stellar celebrity hairstylist and humanitarian.
