A recent article from Modern Salon shows their take on how to style long hair. This is a great idea for the upcoming Prom Season.
The Teals have just introduced their new Long Hair Dressing Method book which explores long hair dressing by answering the questions: Why should I dress hair? What tools should I use to dress hair? And the horrifying…how do I know that, what I choose for the client will be correct? The book gives hairdressers the knowledge to create any long hair look. Here is just a sample of what you will find in their new book! For more information about Long Hair Dressing Method, visithttp://coolestsalon.com.
Another great blog we came across, was one by Amy Nadine at The Beauty Department. She had a great step-by-step guide to contouring showing the steps with the very beautiful Lauren Conrad. So here’s her tips!
Sponge or Foundation Brush
Bronzing Powder or Cream Bronzer
Flat-headed Bronzing Brush
1. Apply foundation all over face and neck with a sponge, foundation brush or fingers.
2. Look in the mirror and suck in your cheeks. This will instantly show you exactly where your cheekbones are. Sweep bronzing powder/cream bronzer with a flat-headed bronzer brush just slightly under cheekbones from the hollows to your ear.
3. Sweep bronzer in circular motions directly on temples.
4. Contour along the hairline.
5. Contour directly underneath your jawline.
6. Blend edges with a sponge.
