Hot irons can damage hair if not used properly. Don't let the iron get too hot, and use pre-heat products to protect your hair. Improper hygiene, improper brushing, and over processing with chemicals can also cause damage to the hair.


Just about any style will go with an oval face. The idea is to make every face look oval, so try adjusting your hairstyle to make it look oval. If you have a very round face, try putting some fullness up in the top area, frame the sides of the face, and don't pull your hair back or cut it too short. For a square face, try parting your hair on the side or frame your face with bangs or a shaggy look around the bottom. For a long face, use full, soft layers. Don't leave your hair straight, short, or parted down the middle, and don't use a cut that is all one length. Curls will soften the appearance of the face.




For thin hair, do anything that creates the illusion of more fullness. You could do that with hair color, curling products, or a layered cut. For thick hair, texturizing, straightening, and frizz-reduction products work well. Your stylist can also thin out your hair with cutting techniques. Thick hair can be styled either short or long.

For older women, stick with a low-maintenance, shorter and softer looking cut. If you have thinning hair, use curls or layered curls. If you have thick hair, try a classic bob with soft, light coloring.

In general, loosely pulled up hair with a splash of color is big right now. Showing a splash of hair color is like wearing a little piece of jewelry.
