hair trend: SHOULDER LENGTH BOB

WE ARE LOVING THE SHOULDER LENGTH BOB FOR WINTER...
By definition a bob is short and relatively blunt, but as for the exact length – that’s open to interpretation. If you’re not game to go for an ultra-short flapper style bob, or even a chin-length one, then the option for 2013 is the shoulder length bob. 

The look right now is a shoulder-length cut with blunt edges that gives off a bob vibe without taking off too much length. 


HOW TO STYLE IT: If the hair sits just longer than the shoulders, one great style is to let it flick up a little at the ends. A bit of body and bounce, and you’ve got a hint of retro flair seeping into your look. For a shoulder-length bob that sits beautifully when side-swept and curled up gently at the ends, you can use either a round brush and blowdryer, or some hot rollers. Of course, if your hair is naturally curly there’s more work involved in achieving this style so be prepared to do some blow-drying and/or straightening, 
or to rock some messy waves.  

You may have also noticed plenty of models and celebrities are again returning to hairstyles with bangs. A fringe / bangs is one great way of keeping a mid-length hairstyle interesting. It could be a more wispy style (like Anja Rubik’s, above), or even better, a set of thick, blunt bangs to match with your blunt-cut shoulder-length bob.

colour inspiration: ANNE HATHAWAY

WE'RE LOVING ANNE HATHAWAY'S NEW BLONDE HAIR...
which she debuted last week at the MET Ball!
 'It's temporary,' she told reporters on the red carpet. 'But as soon as I did it, I thought I didn't want it to be temporary any longer. I know I have to dye it back for my work.'

If you're thinking about going this blonde, here are a few things to consider...

Don't rush it. First and foremost, is not to move up the colour spectrum too quickly. If you go too light, too fast, your hair can get dry and damaged, which isn't pretty regardless of your hair colour. You may need several visits to the salon to get the shade you're looking for. So be patient, heed your colourist's advice, and move at the pace they recommend.

Take a picture. This makes it much easier for your stylist to understand what you want and to tailor the colour to your particular hair and skin tone.

Get dirty. Make sure you haven't washed your hair the day you go to the salon. Having a little buildup of oil will create a natural barrier on your scalp, and will make it more comfortable for you when getting colour, especially if you are lightening up your base colour drastically.

Don't try this at home. Don't try going blonde by yourself, especially if you're starting with a dark base - give your colourist a call to make an appointment.

If you're thinking about going blonde, give Mana a call (02) 8919 0146 to make an appointment.

how to stop your COLOUR FROM FADING

YOU CAN'T STOP YOUR HAIR COLOUR FROM FADING - BUT YOU CAN SLOW IT DOWN! 
So if you've coloured your hair, or have gone 'darker' like Reese did at the beginning of the month {she did it for a movie role} - here's how to keep you hair looking vibrant and glossy:

* Don’t shampoo for at least a day after you colour. From then on, wash only every two to three days. 

* Stick to shampoos and conditioners made for colour-treated hair - these products are designed to keep the hair shafts closed, and that keeps colour in. 

* Be wary of volumising products - they can open the hair’s cuticles, releasing the colour inside and causing fading. 

* Protect hair from the sun with a hat or a colour-protecting styling product. 

* Salt water and chlorine can fade your shade, too, so create a barrier by wetting hair with fresh water, then applying conditioner. Hair acts like a sponge - if it’s wet, it can’t absorb
{the chlorine or the salt water} and will fade less. 

* Keep hair healthy by minimising the damage of heat styling and using a regular conditioning treatment.
