New Updo Hairstyles for You

Do you need a new hairstyle? You do need to know some basics of hair care before getting started with long hairstyles though. First, shampooing long hair is best done standing up, preferably in the shower. This helps reduce matting and tangling. You should choose a shampoo that fits your hair's needs. For instance, chemically treated or damaged hair should be treated with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Use several towels to blot your hair dry. Never rub wet hair because this is a major cause of matting and tangling.

Second, combing and brushing long hair can be difficult if you do not use the proper tools and technique. To make combing wet hair easier, start with a leave-in conditioner. If you are working with dry hair, a large paddle brush works best. When blow drying long hair, use your fingers to comb through the hair from scalp to ends while drying.

Hairpins are made to hold hair in place that has already been secured with bobby pins. Braids and updos are perfect hairstyles for proms, senior pictures, bridal pictures, weddings, and formal functions. Many hairstyle professionals can style your clean dry hair in an updo in about 15 minutes. Having long hair doesn't have to mean always wearing a ponytail.

Punk colors continue to be in for hair color trends 2011 but not generally punk all over but instead bold colors almost in lines of color like a golden red and blonde colored sunset over a small portion of the hair then sleeked to the side or falling in a warm sheath of color.
