I see so many blogs, articles etc on face shape and honestly most same more or less the same thing sure some are better but for the most part apparently we have all read it.
The sad reality is most people think it doesn’t apply to them, or their face. So to put things into perspective let me explain it, if you have a face ( even tho most weekends you get off your face, that’s a completely different discussion ) then you need to make sure your hair is not making it harder, fatter, thinner, wider or longer.
Sure it’s a hard task to find the best salon or hairdresser when everyone is claiming to be the best but you have to do your research. Too many times I see people with very hard features that make them look harsh, angry or masculine when a few small tweeks could completely change not only the look but how others treat you!
Get on line find the best person to speak too or Talk to your hairstylist.
So many want to be biggest & fastest etc but when it comes to our ethos we just want to be the best, create an environment that encourages, supports and pushes the next generation to excel. Creating people who want to win, who are empowered to excel is what makes building our brand the most fun and rewarding because this will change lives forever!
Very proud of Simran Kaur from our Salon at Pullman hotel for taking out first place in the state championships! Winning some cash and now competing in the National finals, where the winner will be off to the Middle East to compete for the Global title against the rest of the world.
It goes without saying how proud of Simran we are and she will be training hard over the coming month in preperation for the Nationals.
Anyone who is successful at anything will always be asked by others to teach them how and show them something they can do to be the same. Yeah sure there is some techniques, experience, personality etc etc and the list goes on but the one thing that makes it all happen is….
Passion! Without heart and soul nothing will have the fuel to survive. The funny thing that I have to mention which is not as easy to grasp as a leader, boss educator is that with passion comes opinion, you should not try and put out that fire in anyone’s belly. By trying to dominate others opinion you are dulling their passion for what they are doing and in effect what you have them on your team for! Too often I’ve seen so called bosses tell people not to think just do as they are told, then wonder why their business is average.
Encourage diversity in the team, full hearts and minds with hunger for more. Having one of the best teams in the country I can honestly say we don’t always agree,but I’m incredibly happy with that because that’s who we are as a brand.
Most of you who have ever searched YouTube a make up tutorial you will be familiar with the term “contouring” with make up, its the use of lighter and darker shades to to define or highlight areas of the face be it jaw line, cheek bones etc. This has now moved into assisting in creating the perfect color specifically for your face shape. Everyone has a different face shape and hair texture so its important when you are choosing what color you are going to do that you get the right advice, not just based on what’s in but also what would suit you best after a consultation from the experts.
Its about choosing light and dark tones in certain areas to create depth or shadow on the face and can completely change the way you look! If you are looking for a trend that is unique then look no further because this will not only be on point but bring out the best version of you possible.
Lets look at a few various face shapes so it makes it a little easier to understand how this will change the way you color your hair forever!
When we look at an Oval face we have to expand it a little so it’s about creating lighter shades on the lower lengths and on the underneath of the sides and deeper or darker shades on the top to give the illusion of a slightly wider face
The goal here is to stretch out the look, so adding depth to the ends and lightening around the hairline will do exactly that and give you a more elongated look
Again it is about bringing proportion to the shape, accentuating the length and softening the lines using lighter and darker shades around the ears which adds interest and softness.
Lightening around the jawline will soften the jawline and the lower section of the face, the top layers should be slightly lighter to take the eyes away from the width.
Its never about trying to be someone else, its only ever about trying to be the best version of you possible. If you are coloring your hair and if by chance its a block color then your doing it all wrong, naturally no one has the same color on every strand on their head from roots to ends, its incredibly artificial making hair contouring is the go to technique to either make you look naturally hot or over the top crazy ( the same thing can be done with bright colors be it pastel pink, reds, blues etc )
By now I hope you know that just because certain hair looks good on your friend or favourite personality it won’t always be the same case with you and your head! The biggest challenge with trying to appeal to the masses is that everyone has a different face shape, different personality and unique goals and dreams. Not everyone should have fullness, not everyone should wear their hair long or short, curly or straight.
When your choosing your stylist make sure you go to one that discusses your goals and understands your hair, face shape and personality enough to be able to make you look the best!
With the entire world occupied 24 hours a day between looking after people in the real world to attracting people in the on line world, be it for personal or business purposes we all have less and less time for the things we used to have ample time for just a few years ago so it’s no wonder why trends are changing. In order for us to adapt to the world there is always small changes that happen over time so we can survive, sadly some of us at times struggle with change and try and hold on to what we did years ago in the hope that nothing in our world will change.
Well no matter what we do its changing and there is nothing you can do to stop it, embrace it because change is always good no matter how scared you are you have no choice but to ride it as a positive!
With hair trends the move towards more natural and free hair started a few years ago and is now gaining momentum here in India with more and more people looking for ways to break free from getting their same blow out every few days, here is a few tricks to help get a more natural look without much effort.
Comb your hair with a wide tooth comb whilst in the shower with conditioner in it, the conditioner acts as a lubricant and will prevent friction on the hair
Once out of the shower, only pat do not shake- remember the more gentle you are on the hair the less aggravation on the hair so the less frizz
Using a leave in conditioner, serum, moisture crème is all a good idea unless you have super fine hair, but remember lightly and not on the roots
Sea Salt ( Label M is my go to for all texture styling ) should be used the moment you get out of the shower depending on length 4-6 pumps on roots to mid lengths
DONT OVER TOUCH IT – Sometime we get a little over anxious and want to touch it too much, do not play with it, let it be and do not run your fingers through it, this will create frizz
Give these tips a try and I am sure your hair will be looking more relevant and cool
