Welcome to this week’s Hairstyles in the News! This week we have blue hair, long hair, short hair, backcombed hair, and one of the most popular looks for this season and beyond. You may think blue hair is just for little old ladies, but it is showing up in many variations on celebrities and models. Spring is a great time to try out something different. You may want to add a few hot colors to peek out from the back of your hair, or if you’re really brave go all over with a hot color. No matter what you’re in the mood for your stylist can help you to decide on the right color, cut, and style.
We never know what color Katie Perry will be wearing. In this pic she has bright blue hair and a fairly tame hairstyle. At a recent awards show in Germany she wore her hair in an Elvis inspired quiff for the red carpet, and then attached crimped bright blue extensions to form a ponytail for her stage show. The effect was stunning. It takes some courage to wear this color, but if you don’t want to try that consider dipped dyed hair. This is color only on the ends and is a toned down version of all over neon color.
Selena Gomez has a more demure blue style in this pic. Peek-a-boo highlights are a way to wear bright colors. A few peek-a-boo highlights in the back of your hair will be acceptable at most jobs and schools. You can keep your natural color and use extensions if you don’t want to color your natural hair. This is a really cute look for young women or a special night out.
Backcombing is the best way to add volume and lift to a hairstyle. It takes this very basic ponytail to the next level of chic. Backcombing isn’t really hard. Just section out your hair and then take a very fine tooth comb and comb the hair close to your roots back toward your scalp. The volume and lift will depend on how much you backcomb. Smooth the top hair over the backcombed area and then you can style it.
A new trend for this season is very structured short hairstyles. This style is very easy to care for. It is combed forward and is perfect for straight hair. You can also use a flat iron is you need to, just be sure to use heat protecting products first so your hair remains healthy and shiny. This look and others like it were seen on runways this spring.
Jennifer Lawrence, of The Hunger Games, is shown in this pic with one of the most popular hairstyles of this decade. The half updo is perfect for everyday wear, weddings, proms, and other special occasions. It is a very versatile hairstyle that looks good on just about everyone. Jennifer is wearing her hair in a loosely pulled back style and long bangs. This is a very lovely look, and you can some waves or curls for another version.
Christie Brinkley is proof women over 50 don’t have to get their hair chopped off when they reach a certain age. She is one of the many celebrities over 50 who wear their hair long. Her deep side part, volume, waves and curls keep her look youthful. To get this look use some root lift, hot rollers, and hairspray. You may want to backcomb the roots for extra volume.
That’s it for this week. Remember to ask your stylist for recommendations is you’ve found a look you want to try. Have a great week and take care of yourselves.
