There’s nothing I dread more than going to get my hair cut. I’m always scared that she’ll either chop off too much or not enough. On top of that, I can never trust them to do a good job, especially if I’m always switching back and forth to different hairstylists. But even if you’re a skeptical about a certain stylist, there are some things you can do to make sure you get the right kind of hairstyle for your hair. Here’s how:
The first thing to take into consideration is your hair’s texture (fine, medium-smooth, or coarse) as well as shape (straight, wavy or curly). Most people take face shape into consideration first and that’s not the way to do it: a face shape can suit a number of different styles so don’t base it on that.
Ever since flat irons became available to straighten hair, women seems cannot put hem down. Most women today cannot do anything less without them. In order to have great looking sleek, straight hair, all you need is a nice flat iron to work with your hair.
Blow dryer and your flatiron are your working magic wand to get the straight hair you have always wanted. In order to make it less stressful for your hair, if your hair is still damp, you need to let it dry first using a fan. This is can also save your hair from too much dryness. It is not a good idea to flatiron a wet hair. It must be halfway dry not dripping.

Hair extensions have become very popular in the last decade with many celebrities taking advantage of the instant volume and length. However, this is an expensive process and there are a few things to watch out for.
Hair extensions are lengths of either real or synthetic hair that can be affixed close to the scalp through a number of ways such as braids, weaves, bonding, metal tubing, heat shrink tubing & adhesive based bonding. When done correctly, hair extensions are not noticeable…no one can tell if you’re wearing them. They can provide volume, extend hair, and add highlights or lowlights without the harshness of coloring your own hair. Some extensions can be worn continuously for up to 3 months before requiring maintenance.
Hair extensions come in many colors, textures, styles and lengths to match any hair type. Natural or human hair extensions are more expensive than synthetic hair because they can be colored, set, curled or treated. Synthetic hair will melt if exposed to the high temperatures of a curling iron or a hot blow dryer; it is used as purchased, and is generally not recommended. Synthetic extenders are available widely at department stores. Human hair extensions are generally purchased through salons that provide extensionist services. Info from WiseGeek.
Several factors have to be considered before deciding to have a hair extension. First to consider is the budget. A minimum of $2,000 should be set aside initially that depends on the type/method of hair extensions. It’s always best to get the opinions of at least 2-3 professionals on what type of hair extension process is appropriate for your kind of hairstyle & requirements before finally deciding especially because it involves investment of time & money.
