Here’s To Halloween Hair-Fashion!

ABC Scandal’s Olivia Pope

That time of year has rolled around once again…

Are you ready, set, Go for Halloween?!?

There is still time to find and create just the perfect look for you this year, particularly the ideal unblemished Hair-Fashion to match the Look just right!

In this regard we would like to offer some suggestions based on many of the popular selections this year, below:

1) Popular modern characters.

Ever since this year’s MTV VMA awards Miley Cyrus has not been able to live down – not that she wants to – her performance or her entire look from that night. Halloween costume merchandizers are churning out the Teddy Bear ensemble in large numbers. Even other celebrities have showcased the look in their own way at Halloween parties this past weekend. If you too would like to get in on the action accomplishing the hair styled is simple for any texture.

If you’re wearing hair extensions, particularly ONYC® hair; you are wearing high quality human hair extensions. However to create the style that you want, do remain conscious of the type of texture you possess.

If you’re working with straight, wavy or curly textures start off by applying a moisturizing serum, such as our DEMORIN Smoothing Serum. Following this use the appropriate tools such as a blow-dryer and flat iron to get the hair as smoothly straight as possible. Then part the hair into two to create 2 high ponytails. Twist each ponytail, then knot them round and round and pin. Easy as 1-2-3. Miley’s hair is short in the back thus she had some hair left out. Customize the look to suit your hair length and/or preference.

Miley’s VMA character is one of the very most popular this year however whichever modern character, whether real life celebrity or television show character moves you, Go for it! Scandal’s Olivia Pope sounds good right about now. :) (See Pic Above)

2) Superheros.

Over the last few years Superhero characters have become a beloved part of culture thanks to the Marvel, and DC comic film series like X-Men, the Avengers etc. So much so that hybrids of the movies are spinning over into prime-time television these days. Regardless if you’re a hardcore Superhero fan or not, this option does present some cool possibilities for Halloween. There is always the classic Wonder Woman, or the sleek looking Black Widow portrayed by Scarlett Johansson in the 2012’s Avengers. You may even have a favorite heroine from a video game…It’s all good!

Which ever you prefer Superhero women often call for voluminous and bouncy hair. Black Widow circa 2012 demonstrated a long bob with soft drop curls. To accomplish the Superhero type “hair-body” apply mouse then either blow-dry and use a large barrel curling iron or large heated rollers. When the curls are set, finger comb through and Voila!

3)  Storybook characters

It appears that your favorite storybook character isn’t getting old anytime soon. This is quite evident from some of this year’s celebrity costumes as well as from the popularity of Storybook characters filling the small screen.  ABC’s “Once Upon A Time Anyone”? So if this is your kind of thing, reach boldly for Cinderella, or A Wicked Witch of the West or East, Ariel the mermaid, Tiana from the Princess and the Frog or even Dorothy journeying the yellow-brick road.

These fantasy characters are larger than life. They live in a world born out of extravagant imagination and regardless of the obstacles they face they surmount them in the end. Whichever character appeals to you this year, take the time to study their classic look and add your own spin. If working with ONYC® curlier and even kinky textures – like the Curly Addiction™ 3B or Kinky Curly textures respectively – try to go easy on the heat. If you must, ensure that it is not the highest temperature. Some textures may take additional work to return to its original curl pattern. A 2 strand twist or 3 strand plait can also assist with creating volume and/or loosening the curl pattern a bit.

4) Legendary Superstars

Of course the legends never grow old. How come? Because if there is one which you have deep admiration for, be true to yourself and Go For It! Diana Ross tends to be one of those. She also offers remarkable Hair-fashion options. Which ever texture you’re wearing right now, you can embody a Diana Ross look , from the 1960s through today, which will score. From her days of Afros, to the beehive up-do, to long full wavy hair, make it happen. With our various textures any of these looks is possible. To accomplish Ross’ big hair remember heat is not a must-have component. Try the option of applying mousse and 3 strand braiding the hair or 2 strand flat twist for a bold look.

Marilyn Monroe, Patti Labelle, Whitney Houston, Madonna even Lady Gaga are also among the Legendary Superstars whom can be emulated.

Transform For The Weekend

Everyone lives for the weekend right?…Come on, you know you do!

Even if it’s  gloomy outside, getting pretty and having some Fun is always the right remedy.

Regardless of what you have planned for the weekend – whether to “Do-It-Up” indoors or get out for a Good Time,  we would like to offer some party or Fun Hair Looks for any occasion. These styles are easy to create and, have been seen on popular Fashionistas as well.

Romantic Curls – Medium Length Hair

Let’s firstly take a look at the waves or soft curls on the “The Bob”. As mentioned before this is pretty simple to create. If you already have a straight hair texture (like ONYC Mongolian Relaxed Perm), you can jump right in but if your hair is of a tighter-curlier nature (like ONYC Mongolian Kinky Curly) It will require some initial preparations. Gently give your hair a first blow-dry. Once this is done follow the next steps

  • Apply mousse all over damp hair, then part it to one side.
  • Blow dry hair with a round brush under. *Ensure that the brush is under the hair as you pull it through.
  • To create the curl you can use large hot-rollers, or large regular rollers and sit under a blow-dryer. Curl 2-inch sections in the front, sides and back of hair. Be certain that the rollers are rolled in the exact direction on each side for uniform waves.
  • No, rollers? No problem. Get a large barreled curling iron and follow the steps above.
  • After curling comb through hair with fingers to lift, loosen and separate. This also adds volume, as well as softness to the look.
  • Glaze over the style with light serum for shine.
  • Wrap things up with a light mist/hold spray.

Bangs and Long Curly Mane

This next hair style can be used with curly or straight hair textures.

Additionally, if cutting your hair to incorporate bangs are too much of a transformation for you, acquire a temporary piece. Otherwise, shake things up and design a new look for yourself during this season.

Here we go:

  • First get a anti-frizz cream or protective oil such as the Demorin Smoothing Serum. Work it through out the hair.
  • Next blow dry the hair straight on a low-heat using a round brush — As you blow-dry be sure to lift and involve your roots to so provide that sleek look.
  • Also blow dry bangs straight at this time (which should be shaped as a feather cut).
  • Divide your dry hair into sections then lift 1-inch pieces to wrap around a large-barreled curling iron.
  • Curl from bottom to top, formulating smooth ringlets with each twist of the iron.
  • When completed body of the hair, give the bang one huge curl or bump – rolling toward the forehead (but not on the forehead)
  • **Please note that if you have a curly texture such as the ONYC Curly Addiction 3B you can work  with this curl pattern to construct the exact look – which already has soft ringlets – and use The Ultimate Diffuser to amplify these curls.
  • Just before finishing, lightly place fingers through styling wax and run them through your hair.
  • End by spraying a light hold and shine spray. *Flip head upside down and spray curls underneath as well, for extra “sexy-pizazz”

Long Half Updo

This style works really well with wearers of straight hair. However, for all the curly manes who desire this as well, go for it! Just be mindful of the necessary prep work. Also be very conscious of the heat intensity which you will apply to your precious wavy, curly and kinky hair textures. Preserving  their beauty is of utmost importance! :)

To accomplish the Long Half Updo, please follow as below:

  • Section off your hair into 2 parts: the top part will be in a “horseshoe” shape – while the bottom half will be left alone at this time.
  • Apply molding cream to your horseshoe shape and tease the hair. Start teasing at the back of your head, toward the front. Stop when you gotten to about an inch before your forehead.
  • Using a fine tooth comb brush the one inch, remaining at the front, over the “teased area” and begin sculpting backward all while spraying with a hold-spray to form the shape.
  • Now slick back the sides of your hair and pin them up underneath the ends of the teased section thus hiding the Bobby Pins.
  • This is where we return to the bottom half: Twist a couple large pieces of the hair (at the bottom half of your hair) around the barrel of a curling iron.
  • Spray with holding-mist as needed. Viola!

Oblong Faces: Do You Know What Hair Works for Your Face Type?

Oblong faces can best be familiarized by Sarah Jessica Parker’s face. The ‘Sex in the City’ star finds great hairstyles to accentuate her facial structure. Kim Kardashian also has an oblong facial structure that people love to see. Most styles shape the face as it is long, so waves, curls and short hair cuts either shorten the face or add a more cheeky look without making it round.
