Popular Hairstyles for Fall 2014
Let’s face it - your hair is your crown and that’s why women’s hairstyles have become very important to those who care about their appearance. Today, just about any hairstyle can be popular, especially when it is sported by the rich and famous. Just think about the newish short hairstyles for women that are so popular among the celebrities these days… Hair extensions are popular for mimicking long hairstyles, such as flat-iron beach waves, soft updos and bohemian bobs.
Flat Iron Beach Waves
If you’re looking for a soft, sexy hairstyle that isn’t hard to create and you have medium to long hair - flat iron beach waves is the way to go. All you need is a flat iron and curling iron. Starting with clean, dry hair, take 1-inch sections, start from the bottom and work your way up. The key is to bend the hair against the flat iron to only crimp around ¾ of the shaft. The remaining hair should be curled with a curling iron in the opposite direction.
Pro tip: Apply some Flat Iron Sheen Spray from Tigi for that extra beach-magic.
A soft updo is great for a romantic night on the town and suitable for medium length and longer hair, but you can do it with short hair, extensions and a little creativity. As an added bonus, it complements every face shape. Even though this hairstyle looks complex and difficult to achieve, it is actually quite easy when you get the hang of it. You start off with a pompadour, before pulling the rest of your hair up and folding it into your own unique style.
