Men’s Beard & Facial Hair Trends for 2016

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Men's Hair, Men's Styles, News, Tips, Uncategorized

It is clear that while all men are not clamoring to get clean shaven – beards are definitely lessening in bulk this year. After a little research, this is the 2016 forecast of the changes in facial styles. Enjoy! By: Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon

 

Beard trends 2016 1The Shorter Long Beard
Beards of bushiness are gone this year. Instead, 2016 will see a calmer, more controlled version. The shape of the shorter take on the long beard follows the face’s shape; also, the lines on the cheek are sharp in order to contrast with the full, natural and unpredictable growth below. Finally, the bottom of the beard lies up to two inches below the chin.
Who’s it For? This style works best if you have extensive facial hair growth. It is a good way of concealing a smaller chin, a double chin or elongating a rounder face – but if you have a longer face, choose a beard that’s a bit shorter.
How to Get It: Patience primarily, because as the longest of the facial hair styles on this list it could take few months to grow to the required length. Make sure that during this time, you don’t remove any weight or hair from the interior of the beard (especially underneath between the chin and neck). It’s this hair that will eventually form the foundations and support the full beard. Only trim the lines on the cheeks if they are growing too high up. Once you’ve grown your beard and shaped it to suit your face, care is the key. Use a moisturizing shampoo to help the beard retain its moisture, otherwise it could flake and cause beard dandruff. Also, while damp, run an argan oil through it with your hands to keep it moist. For a more thorough styling, and to iron out any kinks, use a paste. Apply a hair paste to your damp beard and blow dry on low-medium power while brushing to relax the beard’s hairs. Not only will this make your beard appear longer, but it will also make it easier to shape and style.

Beard trends 2016 2

 

The Short Beard
A shorter beard is a versatile look that can slip in with most hairstyles, and appear smart and rugged at the same time. The shape follows the face’s angles, and the beard is kept close to the cheeks, with the hair measuring around 1cm long. As the beard approaches the chin, it is left ever so slightly longer, in order to elongate the face and give the beard a better, more masculine shape.
Who’s It For? Good growers since you will still need ample coverage to avoid any patches and uneven lines. In terms of face shape, this style is achievable and adaptable, one we will be seeing plenty of in 2016.
How to Get It: It shouldn’t take much longer than a month to lay the foundations for this style. It does, however, require upkeep once full grown. You will need regular trims, done either by your stylist or at home with a set of good trimmers. You will also need to keep your skin in good condition by exfoliating and moisturizing around the beard and using an argan oil to keep the hairs hydrated. Note: For extra definition above the cheeks, use a set of detailers to get a nice sharp line.

 

beard trend 2016 mustasche

 

The Mustache
Is set to make a return in 2016 and the decision isn’t so much whether to wear one, but how to wear it. Leaving your hair to grow more pronounced on the upper lip provides contrast and shape, whether you choose to wear it with an otherwise clean shaven face or a well-groomed beard.
Who’s it For? Provided you have the wherewithal to grow one, and the patience to groom it, a mustache suits most men. There are plenty of variations so you can tweak yours to your taste. Do though think about whether a mustache fits with your personal style before committing: A mustache is going to work better with your look if you tend to dress yourself quite smartly rather than wearing active wear or fitness wear daily.
How to Get It: The best way to grow a mustache is simply to leaving it alone. Do not trim above the lip; train the hairs out to either side of the vertical groove between the base of the nose and the border of the upper lip. Use a mustache comb to straighten it out every now and then, and apply a wax to keep it in shape.

beard trend 2016 Stubble

 

Stubble
Follicly challenged in the face area? Fear not. This designer stubble – the style of choice for discerning men, looks to still soar in popularity in 2016.
Who’s It For? Anyone who can’t because of genetics or workplace-related reasons, or doesn’t want to, grow a beard. Stubble also suits a fuller face and stops it from looking so round as shadow and definition are created by the lines shaven in. It is versatile and won’t dictate your hairstyle as much as having an actual beard would.
How To Get It: Allow facial hair to grow up until it gets itchy. Note where your hair growth begins, ends, is patchy or uneven. Use the lines created by your bone structure to help guide where you want to keep the stubble and wet shave everything else. Use a good quality safety razor for the cheek lines. When shaving down the stubble to the desired length, use a set of beard trimmers and make sure to sanitize the guards and the actual razor head after use, otherwise it could pick up bacteria and cause irritation and/or infection.
Alternatively – and especially if you suffer from shaving rash – try a short stubble beard without lining, but tapering instead. This suits guys that have a chiseled face which needs softening. Fade the neck and cheeks in on a shorter grade to soften the whole of face. If you do swap wet shaving for a short stubble beard, remember to care for your skin. Use an exfoliator to prevent ingrown hairs and follow with a good light moisturizer worked into both the face and the stubble.

 

Beard trends 2016 Sideburns

Sideburns
Sideboards, side whiskers, mutton chops – whichever name you know them by, men are probably at a loss as to why they are on the list for 2016. But hear it is; It’s a classic. It is also just the ticket if you’re itching to lose the beard in favor of something less trite.
Who’s it For? Not everyone, obviously. But from a face shape suitability perspective, sideburns are pretty egalitarian. Sideburns suit most face shapes, and are especially good for longer faces as they broaden the appearance of the face.
How to Get It: As ever, it’s about growth: about two weeks to be exact. Once you’ve got some decent coverage, shave your face and neck, taking care to leave a good bit of room around your sideburns. Trim your burns to the desired length and thickness (the thickness of your sideburns should be consistent with the rest of your hair) and either taper them or give them a clean bottom edge. The length of the sideburns should reflect how subtle or extreme you want the effect to be. Reference your choice of length with a feature on the face such as the lip line or jaw line. Small clippers, or a detailer, are good for maintaining the length as the blade is small but sharp and ideal for outlining.

Lavender Lemonade for Help with Headaches, Anxiety, PMS & Menopause

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Diet, Health and Wellness, News, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized

By, Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

The smell of lavender. Calming, soothing and beautifully fragrant. This is a popular flower and essential oil that is commonly found in most households. Diffusing lavender in the evening is a perfect way to unwind from a busy day, and especially before bed, can have an overall calming effect, relieve nervous tension and can help aid in sleep.

Lavender is particularly great for women who are suffering from PMS or going through menopause. The calming scent of lavender helps to support the nervous system which can help relieve tension, stress or anxiety to help minimize hair loss. It also has estrogenic properties, which can support healing from low estrogen, support a good nights rest or bring balance during menopause. Lavender also has a positive effect in relieving headaches, migraines, and depression.

You can also gain the benefits of lavender by making this delicious lavender infused lemonade. Sip on this herbal elixir all day and feel the calming benefits this amazing herb has to offer.

lavender-lemonade
Ingredients:
• 1 liter fresh spring water
• 2-3 springs fresh or dried lavender
• 2 lemons, juiced
• 1 tbsp raw organic honey or maple syrup
Directions: Add all ingredients into a large jug and let sit in the fridge for 1 hour to allow the lemon and lavender to infuse the water. Feel free to add less or more sweetener, depending on your preference. Sip and enjoy!

This is a new client that came in asking me for color only to minimize her grey regrowth in the front – get rid of some of the “brassy” color – and have more natural brighter blonde look. To minimize her regrowth in the front, I zig-zagged a color 1 level lighter at the base regrowth than what I used on the rest of her head to cover her grey. Baby-lights where then foiled in half her head to brighten her blonde up. Results below with no haircut or “styling”.

Hairstyles for men over Fifty

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in make-overs, Men's Hair, News, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized

By: Denise Zingale Travis, D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

Even though trends and tastes have changed in the past decade, many gents are still choosing to wear their hair in  more classic styles. The haircuts look crisp and sharp. A lot of men are also sporting a full beard with these styles, which creates a dramatic contrast and adds to the disjointed effect created by cutting the sides tight.

Although I have seen a sharp decline in men coloring their hair, coloring doesn’t need to be so dramatic. There are many products, colors and techniques that can be used to lighten/darken the hair or just add tone. Men could definitely experiment with color more, even if it’s only slightly lightening the hair to give it a sun-kissed appearance or using highlights/low-lights to add texture, definition, or grey blend a cut at key areas.

As men mature, so does their style. That often comes with life experience and a deeper understanding of who you are. There are many different hairstyles men can wear these days, but hairstyles for men over fifty continue to remain more traditional and grounded by timeless cuts & styles.

The “SWAG”

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in make-overs, News, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized

By: Denise Zingale Travis, D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

Fall is one of the best times of year to switch up your look with a new haircut. The hottest cut 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 right now 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 perfect for a Fall transformation on any age.

Swag4To 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 style and hair color enhances this trend. Fall is a great time to rejuvenate you and your look.

Solutions for Fine, Thin, Wiry, Frizzy Hair

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in make-overs, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized

By: Denise Zingale Travis, Permanent Waving Specialist ~ D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

Hair changes every 5 to 7 years. As our body ages, we see changes in our hair texture. The hair of a newborn is very soft and fine. The diameter of the hair thickens as we enter childhood and early adolescence. As we age and move into adulthood and older, usually beginning in our 40’s and 50’s, the hair begins to change texture again, becoming “finer” or “thinner” and/or “wiry” or “frizzy.” Add to the causes of your hair texture changing, hormonal imbalances, medications, diet, and genetics. So what can you do? First, get your hormones checked. Hormones influence your hair and texture in many ways since they are regulators of the body’s metabolism and its functions. Diet and medications can take a toll on hair so rule out any possible nutritional deficiencies that can cause dry, thinning, brittle hair or hair loss.

Next, get a GREAT (not just good) haircut! Work with an experienced hair professional to help you with your texture changes. Discuss your lifestyle and desired time commitment to your hair now. Seriously consider getting color, highlights, low-lights, or a permanent/body wave. One or a combination of these texture-changing services can help fine or thin hair look and feel fuller and “wiry” or “frizzy” hair look and feel more controlled and manageable.

On this client, she is just beginning to go grey but not ready (or wanting) full all over color. I have highlighted her hair with color to blend in the grey starting to come though. If your hair is straight, fine, limp and/or flat, a permanent/body wave can give you the texture and lift which boosts the overall volume of the hair to make it much easier to create today’s fashionable hairstyles as seen on this client here.

Seen here are the wrapping technique used, curl results and the finished style. (Click on the picture for larger view.)

IMG_20150529_134208186_HDRIMG_20150529_140420929_HDRIMG_20150529_154756220_HDRIMG_20150529_164111891_HDRIMG_20150529_164144428_HDR

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For those who want the “undone”, “beach wave”, or “swag” look regularly, you would be better off getting a body wave as opposed to using curling irons every day. Irons apply more direct heat, and daily use of them would produce more damage over time.

A few quick facts about permanent/body waves. Human hair is an extremely strong and versatile fiber. With an experienced stylist/perm specialist, they will evaluate your hair and determine the type of solution, rod size and wrapping technique. Proper care using only professionally recommended & bought at a salon haircare and regular maintenance can keep your “waves” lasting for months and styling time on your hair definitely minimized. The rewards of an easy-to-care-for style are great and having a permanent/body wave can make a world of difference between looking uninteresting or looking fashionably beautiful!

For more information and/or consultation if a permanent wave, body wave or a combination of other salon texture-changing services are for you!

Foods that can help you stay hydrated

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Diet, Health and Wellness, News, Nutrition, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized, Wellness

Learn how you can use a fork or spoon to help get the fluid you need on hot summer days
By: Denise Zingale Travis, CPT / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

Think hydration – and you probably think water, the body’s essential fluid. But did you know you can eat your H2O too? That’s when you choose foods that are high in water content. Some varieties of fruit and veggies are more than 85 percent water. On hot summer days, these foods, along with other fluids can help you stay hydrated. And there’s a bonus – Water-rich fruits and veggies can also help replace key minerals (electrolytes) which your body sheds when you sweat.

Enjoy a thirst-quenching menu ~ When the temperature rises, make a splash in your daily diet with these tasty ideas:

Fruit & veggie salad

Super salads ~ Watermelon, oranges, tomatoes, cantaloupe, berries, celery and cucumbers salads are all flush with fluid. These water-rich foods make great low-calorie snacks too!

 

berry smoothie pictureBerry-delicious smoothies. Add berries — fresh or frozen — to low-fat milk, almond or coconut milk. For healthy smoothie recipe ideas: https://www.eatingwell.com/recipes_menus/collections/healthy_smoothie_recipes

 

 

Summer salsa saladSummer salsas. These can be made from vegetables, fruits or a combination of both. Enjoy your favorite variety as a snack — dip into it with cut-up veggies or whole-grain pita chips. Or top grilled fish or chicken with it. Have a sweet tooth? Give orange or pineapple salsa a try.

 

Chilled soups ~ You can serve these as a light meal – or as an appetizer or dessert. Here are three cool and soothing options:

gazpacho soup pictureGazpacho. A summertime favorite that’s typically rich in tomatoes, cucumber, onion, bell pepper and garlic.

 

vichyssoise soup imageVichyssoise. This creamy French classic is made with pureed potatoes and leeks. To keep it on the healthful side, use low-fat, low-sodium chicken broth. For an even creamier soup, stir in a little plain low-fat yogurt or low-fat sour cream.

 

Fruit Soup ImageFruit soups. Strawberries, raspberries and cantaloupe puree nicely.

 

 

frozen grapes & berries imageFrozen nibbles. Freeze grapes or berries. Grab them for a quick and cold snack.

 

 

More hints on hydration
Perhaps you’re wondering, How much water do I need? Maybe you’ve heard it should be eight glasses a day. Actually, there’s no set amount that’s right for everyone.* Staying hydrated is important though so don’t wait until you are thirsty. Carry a refillable water bottle with you and sip from it throughout the day. (Be sure to wash your water bottle daily.)

Bored with the same old water supply? Give it a twist with one of these infused waters you can make at home.

Remember, heat can be a hazard
To learn more about safety in hot weather, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at cdc.gov. You can also check the weather and heat index in your area and see heat advisories at www.weather.gov. In hot weather, do keep an especially close eye on older people, people with health conditions and young children and make sure they stay hydrated. They’re at the highest risk of heat-related illness.

Best Hairstyles for Women over 50

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Health and Wellness, News, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized, Women's Hairstyles

By: Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

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. Note: I am personally NOT a fan of the current “grey” trend on any age! However, the best haircuts, color & styles for women over 50 are the ones that ultimately make you look and feel your best.
Age will not make any woman to 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.

Texture Changes

As your body ages, your hair changes…

August – September 2013 – Cleveland Woman’s Journal, East Edition

ClevelandWomansJournal_Cover_Denise-ZingaleBy Denise Zingale Travis

Hair changes every 5 to 7 years.  As our body ages, we see changes in our hair texture.  The hair of a newborn is very soft & fine.  The diameter of the hair thickens as we enter childhood and early adolescence.  As we age and move into adulthood and older, usually beginning in our 40’s and 50’s, the hair begins to change again, becoming “finer” or “thinner” and/or “wiry” or “frizzy”.  Add to the causes of your hair texture changing, hormonal imbalances, medications, diet, and genetics. So what can you do?  (READ ENTIRE ARTICLE)

Looking great is a matter of finding your own personal style!

February-March 2008 – Cleveland Woman’s Journal

Are you chicBy Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon

Looking wonderful is not about what’s “in” or the “latest.”  The word for women who look great all the time isn’t “fashionable”, it’s “chic.”  Unlike great beauty or wealth, whis is a sensibility waiting to be tapped.  To be chic is to develop a sustainable style, to look uniquely like yourself – the ideal you – whether you are wearing a pair of jeans and a ponytail or a formal with beautifully up-swept hair.  (READ ENTIRE ARTICLE)
