Thought of the day

One of the well meant advices that usually annoy me is “Treat your hair like antique lace”. Sure the thought behind it is good: You need to be gentle and careful when handling your hair and you can’t un-do the damage you cause.
But, and this is my problem: Some times you need to be firmer with it when handling. For instance, the treatment my hair goes through when putting up my hair is definitely not something that antique lace could survive! Does it mean I shouldn’t put my hair up? No. An updo is a fantastic thing that will protect your hair from being caught in things, protect it from tangling, protect it from being dried out too fast, protect most of it from sun and wind and keep your hair safely and securely out of your way for the rest of the day. And at the same time keep you looking good, maintenance free!
It’s not that its bad advice per say, it just feels a bit wrong when I know how “rough” some of us treat our hair when it’s necessary…

Fall 2012 hair trends

I had a look around to see what the predicted trends for autumn 2012 would be for hair. Good news is that there is a lot that can be adapted or altered for longhairs. There is a focus on ponytails that would be nice for those with shorter hair than me, a lot of updos with braid or twist accents, lots of buns in all variations and some serious bling on the accessories.
