Imagine You – Always Contemporary & Fresh

Time is undeniable and unavoidable. As time goes on, we realize that each stage of our lives is a season, just like the climate changes taking place. However it is important to make the best of each and every season. With that in mind, if you are enjoying the season past youth, or being a young adult, here are a few things to keep in mind to embrace your present season and remain contemporary and fresh. As depicted in the main photograph, Halle Berry has certainly tapped into some of these secrets, at 46 years old.

 

 

 

I. Bangs, Yes But Not Like Young Girls Have:

This refers to having bangs which go across the entire forehead and cover from both ends of your temples. You know, the ones that don’t blend in with the rest of your hair? Bangs like these are adorable and becoming of children but they don’t compliment a sophisticated and attractive adult. It is preferable to allow the hair to frame the face properly. Incorporate layers and a few curls, bring a few strands forward which frame the face well and tease hair for a tousled and alluring look. To enhance that tousled look also blend in some volume with extensions. A curly or straight look is ideal for this with the ONYC® Mogolian Kinky Curly Textures I Tip or Relaxed Textures I Tip.

 

II. Don’t Go Too Dark:

A drastic hair color can harden your look and even cause you to look somewhat harsh. Integrate a few highlights on top of your base color a few times a year. Also discretely, placing low-lights at the temples and roots of your hair will provide a soft yet charismatic lift. Which exact color is a personal choice, be sure to consult with an experienced colorist for further advice and valuable tips. *Remember that All of Our top-quality and virgin hair extensions can be colored to your heart’s content. So whether you prefer to go straight with our Light Relaxed Perm or Relaxed Perm hair, like the model in the photograph below, you can ramp up your hair fashion with color and volume.

 

 

III. Don’t Let Grey Roots Grow Too Long

You know how it is fashionable, these days, for the original roots to show with someone’s chemical hair color? It’s a trend…all the celebrities are doing it…well if your original roots are grey this may, or may not be an appropriate trend for you. If you can’t get to your hair stylist right away, there are various “Root Touch-Up” hair products (including root cover sticks)  which can be applied to the roots, it is a great idea to have one handy so that your grey will always be covered.

 

 

IV. Short, But Not Masculine Short

The truth is cutting your hair too short, resembling a guy’s, actually brings your age to the forefront. As we get older (or as the temperature heats up :)  ) there is a tendency to cut our hair tremendously short for manageability sake. However, before you perform the “big chop” have a conversation with your hair stylist about ways to maintain an attractive look without exorbitant or aggravating upkeep.  Short, short hair is not necessarily the solution.

Every season of life requires a particular game-plan(s) to continue to shine regardless of time or age. However, it is doable and can be fun in the process. It is all about identifying what suits you best. Consult a stylist and keep in touch with ONYC hair  to learn which approach you should take, from head to toe.

Hair Color And Complexions

Leading up to the new year, and perhaps into the impending inauguration activities, leaves room for much contemplation about Hair, style options and even Hair Color choices. If you’re like me you have probably randomly chosen a hair color then after the process was over, wished that you had thought it through further. Luckily there is research available to assist us with making the best Hair Color choice possible, for us.

In identifying the best Hair Color, it is very helpful to consider one’s skin tone or complexion…Oh yes! This component results in producing results which truly makes us Amazingly Shine! The following are a few key notes toward selecting the best Hair Color for You, and me!

Dark Skin Tones

For dark-skinned tones, your natural hair color often tends to complement your skin extremely well…not to mention, your natural hair color guarantees the healthiest hair possible. However, when you are ready for that color change try a burgundy or deep-purple color, for a glorious you! Another consideration are subtle light-brown highlights, which will provide a glow on your face.

Medium Skin Tones

Medium-brown skin tones are often enriched by light-brown or red hair. Some brown-skinned people naturally have lighter hair while other similar individuals, do not. For either sub-group, dying one’s hair  inappreciably a shade or two lighter, or electing a slightly red-toned hair color produces a new you! Other options for this skin tone include; dark blond or medium-red highlights. Highlights also enhance the hair’s natural tone extremely and minimizes the amount of chemicals used. In the main Pic above, Queen Latifah illustrates lighter brown highlights.

Light Skin Tones

For lighter skin tones, the hair color is often already somewhat faded, containing natural highlights. If this is your reality, using a shampoo with “brighteners” will provide a look of luster to your natural color, without the opportunity for damage due to chemicals from hair dye. Still, whatever your natural hair color, light brown skin tones mostly look best when subtle highlights are added, just a little bit lighter than your natural hair. However for a more expressive display, blond hair color will fashion a golden effect on your hair. This glamorous and bold effect will amplify your eyes, and facial features.

Olive Skin Tones

Further lighter-skinned complexions are often referred to as olive-like. Golden blond hair, throughout the entire coiffure instead of highlights, works well for people with this skin color. The stylish aura this hair color provides will make you appear vibrant and vivacious. Light brown hair also looks great with olive and paler skin, but the lighter the hair color, the more your face will glow and eyes will shine.
