Prom Hairstyles: Hair Extension

How is it that some girls have great prom hair, and other girls don’t? It all depends on how you take care of your hair, and what you use on it. It is not easy. We all know how important it is to look good, and have the latest trend even on our heads. There are a few tricks you could try to get the hair style you want but most importantly, it is always a good idea to take good care of your hair and try to find a great hair doctor to help you with it! By hair doctor, I mean hair stylist at a salon. Most are very knowledgeable and can take a dried out frizz-ball, and nurse it back to a healthy beautiful head of hair. I am guilty of having my own hair doctor, and I am very happy I do!

A few tricks to try and are highly recommend, not to mention fun, quick and easy, are to find some hair extensions to match your natural hair color. It is highly suggested to take a close girlfriend or family member to the store to make sure the extensions match your natural color. That is actually the easy part. The more difficult part is to make sure when using them, it is not too obvious there are any extensions in the hair by making sure the clips are hidden well. The only thing to do in this situation is to play with the hair. An extra helping hand and set of eyes won’t hurt either. This experiment would make for a great pajama party to learn how to use them with other hair-extension girlfriends!

There are a few different kinds of extensions to pick from depending on what you want to do. There are individual "chunks" of hair you could buy to just clip or glue onto strategic places where they are needed, or there are more expensive pieces that pin up on half of the head. There are also colorful single “chunks” to purchase at beauty supply stores, but not all carry the colorful strands. These are great to match up with your dress color or for a more rock star look. They can also be used every day for fun to spruce up any hairstyle or outfit. I am also guilty of using them on a regular basis!

It is not impossible to have a beautiful healthy hair style for prom or any other occasion. Just keep in mind that it does take a little bit of time, effort, and money. If you’ll be trying to style your hair yourself, it is always a good idea to prep ahead of time and have an extra set of hands to help you out and an extra big mirror. Don’t wait until the last minute either. Doing your homework and shopping around for hair extensions a few weeks ahead of time, will help greatly if you choose to go that route. So, take care of your hair, and good luck styling!

Prom Hairstyle: How to Take Care of Your Curly Prom Hairstyle

Curly Prom hair can be beautiful. But as anyone who has curly can attest to, there is a fine line between Nicole Kidman’s beautiful curls and a Bozo the Clown do. Follow these steps so no one will confuse the two when they check out your head.
  • Invest in a good prom hair cut. Find a stylist who knows how to cut curly prom hair. Depending on your style, layers are usually a no-no for curly prom hair. You should have your hair cut every 6 to 8 weeks.
  • Purchase the proper styling tools, shampoos, conditioners and styling products. There are several products that are created specifically for curly prom hair.
  • Shampoo your curly prom hair every other day. The natural oils in your hair help keep the curls smooth. Curly hair can get frizzy if washed too frequently.
  • Condition everyday. Even if you do not shampoo, wet and condition your prom hair. Use conditioner on the ends rather than the roots. Rinse thoroughly.
  • Deep condition every 2 to 3 weeks. This will help keep the rough shaft of your hair smooth and pliable. It also helps prevent split ends.
  • Use a pick to comb out wet hair—never a comb. Curly hair is fragile and needs to be handled gently. A pick moves through curls and tangles easily, without stretching or breaking the hair shaft.
  • Add the correct styling product to your hair, depending on your purpose. A serum will help keep your curls tight and shiny. A mousse or gel will keep the curls stiffer. A straightening solution will make your curls wavy rather than springy.
  • Utilize a diffuser every time you blow dry your hair. Never blow dry completely. A diffuser helps distribute the heat and air, keeping your curls tight and composed, rather than frizzy.
  • Keep your hands away from your hair throughout the day. The more you touch and finger your hair, the more wiry it will get.

Hairstyles Tips: Looking for Hair Extension?

By Lance Thorington

Women everywhere take great delight in changing their hairstyle. This often means a trip to the salon for a cut, perm, or style. Special occasions seem to intensify the need to choose a special hairstyle.

While it is easy to have hair cut off, sometimes it is preferable to add length to the hair for certain styles. Hair extensions make it possible to do just that. Most hair extensions require one to a series of visits to the salon to have them installed properly by professionals. Clip in extensions are a do it yourself alternative that enable a woman to style her own hair and make it longer at home with professional looking results.

Clip in extensions can be made from either genuine human hair or synthetic fibers. The ones made from human hair cost more than synthetics but have some preferable qualities.

Clip in extensions made from hair can be colored, styled, and otherwise treated exactly as a woman would treat her own hair. Color matching is more perfect than most synthetic extensions and the human hair extensions will last up to a year while the synthetic ones are only good for about two months.

Clip in extensions made from synthetic fibers cost less than human hair extensions. They may not be as durable as genuine hair, but they do have some qualities that could make them worthwhile. Hair has a tendency to go limp in wet or very humid climates. Synthetic extensions are made with a "memory" of the shape they are supposed to hold and maintain that shape regardless of the weather.

They must be treated carefully though. Synthetic hair extensions will be irreparably damaged if one attempts to color treat them the way hair is color treated. Curling irons and other styling tools that use heat may be harmful as well.

Regardless of which material is used to fashion the clip in hair extensions, the design is ideal for the woman who wishes to make a major change to her hairstyle for a short time without long term commitment.

Most salon applied hair extensions use some form of chemical bonding to attach them to the hair fibers. Clip ins can be added and removed at will by the woman wearing them. This versatility makes clip in extensions the preferred method of women who like caring for their hair themselves.

Hair extensions have grown in popularity over the last few years. The ability to add back length and volume without damaging hair further makes them a readily available resource for women who have taken on a short hair style, but desire to do something requiring longer hair for a special occasion or they decide that short hair is not right for them and do not want to wait for it to grow back out.
