We’re putting a call out to all our male readers to tell us what hairstyles and haircolors are sexy. Women sometimes get caught up in trends, or fall in love with a celebrity style or haircolor that she thinks is fabulous, but may never consider whether it is something that a man is going to find flattering, let alone sexy.
So, we’re asking you to share your opinions, for the education of our female followers. What turns you on, and just as importantly, what turns you off?
Tell us what the sexiest look is on a woman, and what the un-sexiest look is. Next week, we’ll share your answers!
To give you a hand, we've created a photo album on our Facebook page to give you some ideas to choose from, but you should feel free to Google pictures of your favorite celebrities who have the sexiest hair, and those whose hair is a big turn off. You can post them with your comments, or just provide us with the link to the picture, and we’ll grab the image for you.
And don’t hold back! The ladies will thank you for your honesty.
Until next week, ciao…

Every once in a while, a trend seems to explode onto the scene, and we see it ripple outward into not just one or two celebrity looks, but into a half dozen, then another handful, and suddenly things reach critical mass and our salon fills up with clients clutching magazines and pictures they printed from websites. If that many stars are doing it, it must be something they ought to consider, too. This time, we’re talking about Hollywood’s Big Bang Explosion.
Now, there are celebrities who experiment with styles but generally wear bangs as their signature look: Nicole Ritchie, Zooey Deschanel, Meg Ryan, Kate Moss, and Ashlee Simpson all come to mind immediately.

But literally in the past week , six very popular stars have shown up to promote their new films or at award shows with fresh fringes: Rachel McAdams, Liv Tyler, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jessica Biel (who just changed her haircolor last month), Reese Witherspoon, and Rhianna, who not only has a banging rocker shag, but a brand-new blonde haircolor to go with it!
Bangs are a fantastic way you can drastically change your look without changing your overall hairstyle, length, or hairline – that’s why these celebrities tend to inspire so many women to try cutting a fringe, too. When you see the before-and-after pictures together, you realize what a big change can be made with a minimum investment (in both money and hair sacrificed!).
So, if you’re not ready for some of those drastic cut and haircolor changes we showed in the last post, perhaps bangs are just the right catalyst to get a bigger bang out of life.
Until next week, ciao!

Last week, we posted before-and-after photographs of nine high-profile celebrities who made major hairstyle changes in the first 31 days of 2012, either cutting, coloring, or doing both! Celebrities have truly become the barometers of beauty and fashion for the masses, and they have the financial power to indulge their whims and change their hair as often as their clothes. It’s wonderful to have so much inspiration to make changes to your own style, but as we give you our opinions – as promised – we’ll also impart some advice about what is involved in being a color-and-cut chameleon.
Cameron Diaz: Your opinions were unanimous, and agreed with ours – Cameron’s new color and cut age her tremendously. In fact, we think she looks downright matronly, and her hair looks fried. Her former warm tones were much more flattering to her skin, and even though she changed her makeup colors to complement the new platinum shade, the overall effect turned a quirky, exotic comedienne into a middle-aged “Housewife of Beverly Hills.” She’s a cautionary tale for trying on wigs before making a change so drastic. And more than one person commented that her new color and style make her look like Ellen Barkin, who is 18 years her senior.

It’s difficult for women who are accustomed to the extra length and thickness to get used to how their own hair feels again, because it’s going to have some damage and need time to recover and re-grow. The most important thing to know about extensions is that they are very high-maintenance, and if you cannot afford to take care of them, don’t do it because you can severely damage your hair. They add extra weight to the hair, and as the hair grows, the extensions are further from the scalp. You can’t comb or brush the hair between the scalp and the extension, and it tangles, so you pull to try and smooth it, and you have breakage. Extensions are an investment, never take the cheap route, and if you can’t afford the maintenance, you’re going to end up with broken and severely damaged hair. Use clip-in extensions instead and save yourself the trauma.

So, until next week, ciao…
