Women’s hairstyle trends today are diversified and provide endless creativity when it comes to innovations and new beauty looks.

From timeless all-natural and highly textured hairstyles to extravagant braids, updos and twists, Women’s hairstyle trends show immense incentives and complementing style alternatives for all hair types and face shapes to highlight your best features. Check out some of these great hairstyle trends below!

Half-Up Half-Down Hairstyles ~
Being the intermediate variant between loose hair and stylish updo’s, half-up half-down hairstyles are one easy way of concealing a bad hair day. These effortless and versatile hairstyles make a continuous comeback especially with the addition of minimalist metallic hair accessories.

All Forms of Ponytails ~
When it comes to the most versatile and coolest Women’s hairstyles, the ponytail comes first on the list. This hair style has been reinvented, revitalized and refreshed. Whether you have long, medium-length or short hair long enough to be put into a ponytail, this hair style is the perfect thing you can consider for looking effortless and chic on a daily basis, as well as for making a big style statement on special events. High or low ponytails can be full & bouncy, sleek and glossy, bubbled, slightly textured, or softly crimped.

Crimped Hair ~
Coming from the nineties, crimped hair is again “trendy” and adds so much texture to hair whether wearing it in a ponytail or loose for a “waffle” texture look. To achieve the crimped look, you will need a hair crimper, or you can braid wet hair, let it dry completely and then unravel or braid dry hair and then pass the sections through a flat iron a few times, cool it, then unravel the braids and enjoy this trendy chic hairstyle!

The Clavicut

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Blow-dry Hairstyling, fall hairstyles, Fashion, Hair Color, hair texture, Holiday Hairstyles, make-overs, New Products, News, Spring hairstyles, Summer hairstyles, thinning hair, Tips, Uncategorized, Up-do's, Wellness, Women's Hairstyles

Have you heard of the clavicut? This current “beauty buzzword” describes mid-length, in-between hair, long bobs, and shoulder-length styles. The name comes from the fact that the longest layers of this type of cut graze the clavicle, and this collarbone-skimming style has become the hairdo of choice due to its functionality and ease. It’s been a long few seasons of bobs, lobs, swags, shags, etc. You may have opted for one of these styles, or seriously thought about it and decided to keep your long layers anyway. The Clavicut is a trend almost anyone can get behind; young or mature,  growing out a shorter cut, or looking for a change to the same old “long”.

This style can be tailored to your face shape and hair type, although this length is great for anyone. Consider blunt edges for a more dramatic look, or soft layers to blend thicker textures. To make it more modern, opt for bangs with your clavicut for a statement look.

With this length; wearing your hair down won’t weigh you down and up-styles are still romantic. You will still have enough length to successfully air dry, without having a tangled mess or tons of flyaways – it is the perfect middle ground for easy styling and easy care. Although saying good-bye to your long locks might sound scary, this cut could be life changing, in the best way. Opt for a new outlook with this style and shed some of your inhibitions along with those inches. Call: (216) 292-4247 to schedule an appointment for your new look today!

The “SWAG”

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: .

Looking to switch up your look with a new haircut? The hottest cut still going strong is the “Swag”, which is short for Swingy-Shag. This is a fun take on the 70’s shag cut, and is a very versatile trend on any age. The Swag cut embraces natural texture while being fun & playful & “choppy” layers through the crown, and a more heavy weight line on the perimeter. This cut also plays well with fringe, and you can see from these pictures that the length of the cut can vary from shoulder length down to mid-chest.

You can opt to wear a center part with “curtain bangs” that frame the face nicely, or opt for a deep side parting and a side-swept bang. Either way the cut is youthful and a perfect transformation on any age.

To achieve this look, depending on your hair texture, a razor may be used or a slithering technique with scissors to cut the layers and fringe, for a more textured appearance, and to lighten the hair so it has that swingy bounce we are looking for. Once you have the Swag cut, keep your styling loose looking by prepping your hair with professional only hair products specifically recommended for your hair type & texture and then wrapping large sections of hair around a curling wand, for the perfect loose waves.

The “SWAG” is a versatile and hair color enhances this style. Rejuvenate you and your look. Don’t let your age to be the factor in your hairstyle choice ~ it is all about you and how you feel!

Best Hairstyles for Women over 50

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Blow-dry Hairstyling, Color make-over, fall hairstyles, Fashion, Hair Color, hair texture, Health and Wellness, Holiday Hairstyles, make-overs, News, Perms / Body Waves, Publications, Spring hairstyles, Summer hairstyles, Tips, Uncategorized, Women's Hairstyles

Majority think the rule for the best haircuts for women over 50 is short. This was correct until the early 20th century, but now, there are no more rules. Let your hair grow or cut it very short; it is now all up to you and working with a creative and experienced hairstylist. One major factor to consider with any style is color (dimensional color preferably) usually within a shade or two of your natural color will help make you look more youthful!

A woman’s age will never have her stop wishing to be beautiful and stylish. Even if you are in your 50s, you are still interested in the last trends and styles. When most women get older, their hair does become thinner. This is the reason why many mature women prefer to cut their hair shorter and the medium haircuts for women over 50 with fine hair have become really popular. So to help you decide what you may want or need, I have gathered some haircuts and styles in various hair colors for women over 50, so you can get inspired!

Short and sexy – Some of the haircuts & styles for women over 50 are short; most everybody agrees but this is not a must. These haircuts are very sexy and have a lot of potential. Add asymmetrical layers, bangs, or choppy layers for interest. The pixie haircut has become even more of a favorite haircut for many women over 50 especially with fine hair. These haircuts don’t need much maintenance or time to style; they look great in the morning and can be styled  seductively for evening.

Medium and classic – The layered bob with natural looking dimensional hair color is one of the best and most popular haircut styles for women over 50. Customized layering gives each woman an individual fresh and modern look. It works with many textures of hair, and suits most any face shape from jaw line to the shoulders. It can be styled fun & flirty to classy & elegant. Having a layered bob hairstyle means you will need to take care of your hair maintenance a little more – but this style is worth it!

Long and elegant – There are long haircuts for older women that will make you look really stylish, but you have to pay attention when choosing them. Haircuts & styles for women over 50 with long hair can give you a sophisticated look depending on the length of it. A long-layered or “Shag” haircut looks good on most all face shapes and works on most any hair texture. Adding dimensional highlighting and low-lights to a layered style gives it body, volume and interest. It can be worn down casual and wavy. Body waving your hair can give you a “beach” look or you can blow your hair out straight – but not stick straight (which can be aging!) You will need to take care of your hair more at home using a professional conditioner daily and hair mask every week.
