MENS HAIR STYLE


I've always found ads for products promoting healthy hair to be a bit funny. There's no such thing as healthy hair. Hair is basically protein and keratin with no blood supply or nervous system and has no reparative qualities. Hair is not alive, so it cannot be healthy. I prefer to use the term well maintained hair. Once damage has occurred, the only way to repair the hair is to cut off the damaged length. Of course, a healthy looking head of hair starts with a great looking haircut, but that's just the beginning. Like your car, your hair needs maintenance in order to preserve strength, elasticity, and shine. Following are my hair care tips for men.Towel drying is one of the biggest causes of damage to men's hair. When hair is wet, it is highly susceptible to damage. When the hair is rubbed with a towel, some of the hairs become tangled in the threads of the towel and become stretched to the breaking point, causing damage to the cuticle (the shingle-like outer layer of the hair), frizziness, and split ends. To properly towel dry, shake out the excess water and stroke your hair in the direction it grows, rather than rubbing the hair with the towel. Drying takes a bit longer this way but after a few haircuts, you'll notice the difference in the way your hair looks. Blow drying is also a common cause of damage to the hair. Excessive blow drying can dry out the hair and scalp. If you must use a blow dryer, apply a thermal styling spray or detangler to coat the hair and protect it from damage, use a wide-tooth comb to prevent pulling, and always leave the hair slightly damp. This will prevent over drying the hair.Nothing feels better than a piping hot shower, but it's wreaking havoc on your hair and scalp. Very hot water strips too much of the essential oil from the hair and scalp and leads to dryness.Repeatedly coloring or perming hair can leave it damaged, dry, and dull. I recommend avoiding at-home chemical products and seek a good stylist for such services. A stylist will know how to properly prepare you hair and choose the best products for your hair type. Results from a trained professional will almost always look more natural than those which can be produced at home.A good shampoo and conditioner will help cleanse the hair, add moisture and elasticity, and smooth the cuticle to add shine.Don't use a brush on wet hair, when the hair is most vulnerable. When combing through wet hair, use a wide-toothed comb and gently work out any tangles. Avoid heated tools such as blow dryers or irons which can dry and damage hair.The condition of your hair is often a reflection of the overall health of your body. Eat well, exercise, drink plenty of water, get enough sleep, and reduce stress in your life. Doing so will result in a healthier scalp and great looking hair. Living well and staying healthy will also increase the rate of hair growth.A tight hat (or ponytail) can cause "traction alopecia," a condition in which hair is pulled out of the scalp. If worn long enough, the damage can become permanent. A tight hat or ponytail can also cause damage to the cuticle and breakage.Since the only real way to remove damaged hair is to cut off the damaged section, keeping your hair trimmed regularly will help eliminate split ends. Even if you're growing your hair out, make sure to get it trimmed about every six weeks, but make it clear.

PERFUMES


Perfumes are one of the most popular gifts for just about every occasion, whether it is a birthday, anniversary, holiday or just because gift. Unfortunately, many bottles of perfumes are left sitting unopened to gather dust because the well intended gift giver had no clue how to go about selecting a good perfume. Whether choosing a perfume for yourself or as a gift, selecting the perfect perfume can be a stressful task, but if you know what you are looking for, it is a breeze.For many people, the method of choosing a good perfume falls into one of three categories. In some cases individuals look at the price and assume that because an expensive price tag is attached it must be a good perfume and in other cases they sniff it and try to decide whether they like it and assume the intended recipient will as well. One of the worst ways to select a perfume is to base the decision on the celebrity whose name is associated with the perfume. Just because you happen to like that person, does not necessarily mean you will like their perfume.While these are traditional ways of selecting perfume, there is a much better way to choose a good perfume that will not only earn the appreciation of the recipient but insure that the bottle you select won't gather dust on a shelf. The most romantic of all perfumes are those with a floral scent. Statistics indicate that blonds and redheads prefer the light scent of most floral perfumes. People with creative, unpredictable personalities also tend to prefer floral scents. Additionally, unlike some types of perfume, floral scents are perfect year round.Outgoing, younger individuals tend to lean more toward the crisp scent of ocean and green scents. These scents are great for summer. Brunettes seem to prefer the stronger scents associated with woodsy or fruit perfumes. These types of perfumes are wonderful for cooler months. According to department store sales statistics, women who fall into the older age bracket prefer the scent of perfumes that are classified as oriental. This type of perfume is also a good selection to be reserved for special occasions and evening wear. Having more than one distinctive smell adds to your character and personality.Regardless of which type of perfume you think you or the recipient may prefer try no more than two perfumes at a time. Trying any more perfume than two perfumes will result in the confusion of your senses and quite usually, a bad decision. At many perfume and department stores, there should be a cup of coffee beans available for you to sniff to rid the smell of previous perfume from your nose. I suggest you wait a good ten to fifteen minutes after you spray the perfume to decide whether you like it or not. The initial scent of the perfume after it is first sprayed is not a good indication of how it will smell later on. It is a good idea to take a walk around the store or in the mall to see if you really like the perfume after a few minutes.Likewise, it's not a good idea to simply sniff the bottle to determine whether you like a scent or not. You should always spray the perfume directly onto your wrist, near the pulse point, in order to make a decision. This is because the perfume must interact with the chemicals in your skin, which may produce a change in the smell. That said, be aware that it is quite often the case that the same perfume will smell differently on one person than on another. This is why it's not a good idea to base a perfume selection simply on how it smells on someone else. If you truly want to make an impression that counts, instead of selecting a perfume.

CHOSSING A DRESS

There I have to teach you how to choose a dress for a beautiful figure. Everyone has figure flaws, but it doesn't mean you can't hide them! When shopping for a new dress this season, be sure to keep your body type in mind. By following these simple tips, you can accentuate the positive and downplay the areas of your body that... well, aren't so perfect. For pair-shaped women with full hips and thighs, the dress should be shorter than an inch or two above the knee. Select a dress with a line skert but not something too full. A short, fuller dress will look like a tutu. To draw the attention away from your lower body, select a dress with a plunging V-neck, halter top or embellished neckline. If you are apple-shaped with a thick middle, you need to elongate the look your torso and draw the attention away from your waist. Select a dress with an empire waist or drop waist to re-define your waist line. Avoid thick belts cinched around your waist and instead choose a chain or sash belt slung low on your hips. Sleeveless and cap sleeve dresses aren't for you. Instead, select billowy, bell sleeves that are 3/4 or even full-length to hide flabby arms. Use hand-held dumbbels 15 minutes a day to get your arms in tip-top shape. If you weren't endowed with ample breasts, avoid deep plunging necklines. Instead select dresses with a scoop or bandeau neck with sequins or other adornments to add a little dimension up top.Layered necklaces are very popular right now and they can add some dimension to depth to your bust. You can also follow these simple instructions to make your Brest biger with makeup to enhance your cleavage. Dresses with halter tops and deep V's are very attractive for women who want to accentuate their big bust. Select fabrics that aren't skim your body rather than bind, which can make your breasts look too big. To draw some attention away from your bust and balance out a smaller lower body, choose a dress with an A-line skirt that falls one or two inches above your knees. Don't pack on layers of baggy clothes to try to cover-up your body. Contrary to what you may believe, baggy dresses will just make you look bigger. Select fabrics that don't cling to your body, but drape nicely. A wrap dress is particularly flattering to full-figured women. Don't avoid color and prints. The colorful collection of plus size dress at Avenue.com offers a variety of different types of dresses for full figured women, including bold prints and sexy styles. Eater or knit dresses are terrific options for thin women. Add layers to your dress, such as a cardigan or fitted jacket to add some bulk. If you have extremely thin legs, avoid mini-skirts and choose longer, flowing dresses instead. Thin women can add a tjick belt to give their waist more definition. Bubble dresses are very trendy right now and can also give the appearance of a larger lower body. The shift is a dress that hangs straight down from the shoulder. It's a dress type that is flattering to almost everyone. It skims your body nicely, but doesn't cling. For summer, you can find shifts in cool cotton, linen and light knits. When fall arrives, wool and heavier knit shifts will continue to be popular. Though the typical shift dress has a straight skirt, some fashion designers have created shifts with a slightly A-line cut this season. Whatever your body type, you can find a beautiful dress.

LONDON FASHION SHOW


One of a younger generation of artisan-craftsman designers, Schwab explored the concept of the dirndl, the corset-laced bodice and the traditional embroideries one associates with pretty young maidens in The Alps, or heaven forfend, Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music. But this was no remake for a modern "Heidi". Schwab used silk charmeuse, Loden wool, silk taffetas and teddy-bear fabrics, to create a thoroughly modern silhouette shifted the folkloric into a new, desirable dimension.A low-cut bodice was cut under the bust, over a white, full-sleeved shirt, and allied to short, bell-shaped skirt. Wide belts, scattered with precious stones and crystals, or intricate lacing, drew the eye to a very defined waist.Cropped boleros, with a wave-cut just above the d├ęcolletage, emphasised the torso even further. The "dirndl" neckline was echoed in coats, in a Steiff, teddy bear-wool, belted, and worn with heeled boots, reminiscent of a walk in the forest. The sensual outline and thinking behind the entire collection was emphasised with leather, pendant chokers, designed by Beana Makri, which were inspired by the restraints used in The Story of O, and a tracery of stones detailing the low-cut necklines.In more glamorous mode, Schwab, who has just shown his first collection for the American brand, Halston, at New York Fashion Week, showed black, asymmetric, "dirndl" dresses with crystal halters and shoulder details.
