Sporting different variations of a choppy bob, Kris Jenner
always keeps her haircuts age appropriate and extremely flattering.
The 57 year old mother of six, always keeps her dark thick hair
short, trying every look from the pixie cut to the shaggy crop with
Kim Kardashian's mother has been sporting her hair at the same length for a long time, because if it works, why try and fix it? "I love my short hair and like it to be really fresh and clean", said Kris Jenner, explaining her preference for shorter cuts.
Kris Jenner's Haircut
While her haircut is sometimes shaggy, sometimes gently layered and texturized, Kris Jenner is a bit fan of bangs, but doesn't always wear them in the most flattering ways.
Heavy bangs with a lot of volume on top have popped up regularly amongst Kris Jenner's hairstyles, but wispy side-swept bangs work much better for her face, according to her experienced stylists.
Kris Jenner's Hairstyle
Most of Kris Jenner's hairstyles generally stick to the same lines, that flatter her face most of the time and keep the Kardashian matriarch looking young and sophisticated.
Whether the 57 year old is sporting a layered razor cut or a side parted straight cut, her style is often reminiscent of a bob. The short choppy layered look flatters her oval face perfectly and while some people call it a boy cut, Kris Jenner's style is a great haircut for women over 50 who want to stay stylish without too much daily maintenance.
Kris Jenner Makeup Tips
Hair is very important to Kris Jenner, but makeup is equally important for her style, so most Kris Jenner's haircuts are perfectly balanced with her favorite makeup style.
"I'm a fan of the smoky eye. It's become my signature style. It's less intense during the day but at night I go all out and play up the smoky look. I'm not a fan of colour for my eyes; I love blacks, greys and nudes and then I play this up with a black eyeliner. For me, it's important that the eyes and the lips never clash so I always team smoky eyes with nude lips. I also focus on accentuating my eyebrows as they frame your eyes and your face", she told Gulf News.
Trying different Kris Jenner hairstyles is easy if you have the right face shape and a good stylist, but if you want similar makeup to the Kardashian mother, make sure you have the right tools.
"It's really important for all women to own the right beauty tools: a great set of brushes can make all the difference. You have to start with a foundation and then build on it", added Kris Jenner.

Made famous by Olympic figure skater Dorothy Hamill in the '70s,
wedge haircuts for women have evolved throughout the last
few decades offering a variety of sophisticated looks. Find out
more about the women's wedge haircut in all its variations, from
high-maintenance crops to simpler hairstyles.
While it originated from the bowl cut, the wedge has adapted to a variety of shapes that suit most face shapes but are primarily sported by women with naturally straight hair.
Wedge Haircuts for Women: Evolution
Modern short wedge haircuts can feature different styles of bangs along with angled layers. Pixie style wedge haircuts can give a sophisticated look for younger women, but are also suited for older women with thinning hair.
A good stylist can create the perfect wedge look with the right combination of layers and definition, but this hairstyle is also suited for messier looks and bright colors for a more alternative look.
Layered Wedge Haircuts for Women
If your hair is naturally wavy or curly, you can use a ceramic flat iron to straighten it and a shine serum to get the classic look or you can choose a more modern variety of women's wedge haircut that involves layers and good definition.
Cut just above the ear with longer crown sections, the layered wedge works best with a side-part that gives it extra volume. Ask for choppy fringes and keep them styled in the right way for your face shape, just above the eyebrows for a great wedge look.
Women's Wedge Haircut with Bangs
Short wedge haircuts for women can be styled with longer bangs if you have high cheekbones. If you want a well defined style, you can straighten sections of your bangs after blow drying your hair in the opposite direction of the one you plan on setting your lightly side swept bangs.
Wedge Haircuts for Women: Styling
Keeping your wedge in shape is harder if you go for one of the more classic looks and your hair would need a trim every 6 to 8 weeks to keep the desired shape.
A more low-maintenance option is a slightly longer layered wedge hairstyle that doesn't need a lot of daily care and products since it can be easily set the right way if you use a paddle brush with boar bristles while you blow dry.
Getting a well defined wedge with an extreme side part is the more elegant option and this look works best with long chandelier earrings for a great look on special occasions.

Choosing the perfect hair color for pale skin and brown
eyes is a simple process once you figure out if your skin tone
is warm or cool. Find out what hair color for fair skin and brown
eyes works best for you, based on your skin tone and eye color
A warm skin tone is easy to recognize after the hue of the veins in your inner wrists. If they have a slightly green tint, you have a warm skin tone, if they're more blue, then your skin tone is cold. Once you know this important distinction about your skin, it's easier to choose hair colors for pale skin and brown eyes.
How to Choose Hair Colors for Pale Skin and Brown Eyes
When you have a very light skin tone, you can also go for a pale hair color. On a warm skin, you're better off choosing warmer color, but if you have a cold skin tone, you can opt for platinum blond, flaxen or champagne.
Hair Color for Pale Skin and Light Brown Eyes
If your brown eyes have a golden tint, you have more good options available and you can get away more easily with cooler colors. The best look might be a medium brown with lighter highlights. Choose blond highlights for more texture.
Hair Color for Pale Skin and Darker Brown Eyes
Dark brown eyes offer a great contrast with fair skin and the best looks involve natural colors, not too different from your natural hair color.
You can also opt for cool colors but don't go too far with the right hue when you want to be a light blonde. If you choose a two-tone color, lowlights work best.
Hair Colors for Fair Skin and Brown Eyes
If your natural hair color is light brown or lighter, you can choose a very light color that will complement your skin. This works best with a warm skin tone.
Bright red is one of the good hair colors for pale skin and brown eyes. Light or medium auburn can be a good look for you, especially if your eyes are light brown.
Going very dark is another good choice for a Snow White look. Choose dark chestnut brown for great contrast with your skin, but stay away from black with blue hues if you don't have a cold skin tone.
No matter what hair color for pale skin and brown eyes you end up choosing, don't try to make a radical change too fast. Consult a salon professional especially when you've decided on a shade much lighter than your natural color, a hair color for fair skin and brown eyes that may suit you best.
Finding the best haircut for fine hair is hard if you're only
looking at longer options. Pixie haircuts for fine hair offer a
great way to feel good by making your hair look good with less
maintenance than a longer hairstyle.
A layered pixie adds to the fullness of your hair, making it especially suitable for fine or thin hair. What it lacks in length, it delivers in the way it can flatter your features and, when styled right, in sophistication.
Pixie Haircut: Fine Hair Solution
A very short cut on the sides and back works best with more length on the crown, concealing the fineness of your hair.
You can try the pixie haircut for fine hair with wispy bangs for a more youthful look or keep it simple for an elegant air.
Why Is the Pixie One of the Best Haircuts for Fine Hair
Shorter is better for fine hair, but don't cut it super short if you want a flattering look. You can trim the sides and the back more, but keep some volume on top and ask for a layered pixie, that gives more fullness and texture.
Shaping the volume of your hair is the best option for getting a haircut that's flattering for your hair, but you can also experiment with different ideas.
Don't give up on your the bangs and ask for piecey bangs and consider opting for highlights, that give you hair extra dimension. Side-swept bangs are the best way to create a good look if your face is round. Heart-shaped faces are equally flattered by the right pixie haircut.
Celebrities Who Love the Pixie Haircut
Many stars with fine hair have sported a pixie haircut over the years. The style is especially flattering to older women and was sported successfully by Sharon Stone, Halle Berry and Judi Dench.
The pixie haircut for fine hair is a stylish option at any age, worn beautifully by Michelle Williams and most recently Anne Hathaway. Keeping the sides short while adding volume on top can be a great look, that works well for hair that's lighter in color, like the pixie sported by Carey Mulligan, but also does wonders for darker hair, as seen on Rihanna.
How to Style Short Haircuts for Fine Hair
When it comes to hair products, the pixie haircut needs a less is more approach. For the best look, you can use dry oil mist to fight the frizz and ensure the shine.
For giving it the perfect shape, an excellent option is molding mud while keeping the sides flat is easiest when using a brush with fine bristles.
The ombre hair coloring technique has found many fans, including celebrities like Jessica Biel who was an early adopter of the ombre hair color trend. Find out how ombre highlights work best and decide if this can be a good look for you.
Using two or more highlighting shades, the point of ombre hair highlights is to give you a finished look, from darker roots to lighter tips. It should not look like your roots have grown out, instead it offer a more gradual look, that's also easier to maintain than regular highlights.
Jessica Biel Ombre Highlights
Darker at the roots, fading into lighter shades on the middle and ends, the ombre highlights are a trend Jessica Biel jumped on early. Justin Timberlake's wife has been sporting the ombre look for about two years, but she isn't the only celebrity to make it work.
Jennifer Lopez and Sarah Jessica Parker have also tried the ombre hair highlights in natural colors, along with Drew Barrymore, Hilary Duff and Lauren Conrad.
Nicki Minaj is one of the celebs that tried a more edgy look based on the ombre highlights combining different colors for a modern interpretation of the coloring technique.
Jessica Biel's ombre highlights can be a perfect summer look and they work both with a longer layered hairstyle, both with bangs and without.
Ombre Highlights Pros
The most important advantage the ombre hair highlights hold is the fact that they work on any skin tone, as long as the hues are chosen wisely.
It's an easier look to maintain than regular highlights with a base color since you'll only need touch ups at the roots, leaving the rest to grow out.
Ombre Highlights Cons
While they can look great with layered or wavy hair, ombre highlights aren't always the best look for straight fine hair, making it loose volume.
Since it usually requires bleaching, at least in the lower sections of your hair, the ombre hair color can further damage hair that's been subjected to many other chemical treatments.
While Jessica Biel's ombre highlights also work with bangs, this look is hit and miss unless you have very long hair. Having one color bangs can sometimes mess up the look.
Ombre Hair Highlights
If you want to recreate Jessica Biel's ombre highlights, make sure you don't use anything lighter than 2 shades from your natural hair color. Opting for a less natural, edgier look can include up to 3-4 shades lighter than the base.
Get a few ideas for alternative hairstyles that can help you
shape your look to suit your personality in an edgy way. From
alternative haircuts to extreme coloring, check out original ideas
that could suit your hair.
Emo hair and cornrows or dreadlocks are hardly alternative anymore, but they can make for great looks when you're running out of ideas.
Alternative Hairstyles for Women
Heavy layering and contrasting textures are key elements in a lot of cool alternative hairstyle for women, providing unique looks when done right.
Asymmetrical cuts are another great way to try some alternative haircuts, but make sure your stylist cuts very slow so you can always decide when a look is getting too extreme.
Spiky Punk Short Alternative Hairstyles
For short hair, you can either sport an extreme pixie cut with your own color ideas or choose a spiky style, inspired by the classic punk look. Using mousse or hair gel you can easily create an alternative look without losing track of your feminine side.
Alternative Haircuts: Mohawk
With plenty of mohawk options to choose from, this is one of the alternative hairstyles that works in different ways for any hair length. You can go for a huge updo, contrast the mohawk with blunt or piecey bangs or choose to color the sides differently than the top.
Short Alternative Hairstyles: Shaved Sides
A feature of the classic mohawk that can be used in many different styles, the shaved sides, or just one shaved side, can help you achieve an edgy look when you're also going alternative for the rest of your hair.
Alternative Hairstyles: Retro Look
If you just want to be different without getting too edgy, you can choose a more retro look for your alternative hairstyle. The most popular option is a retro curves fringe, but you should look up different styles popular throughout the ages to find the best one for you.
Alternative Hair Coloring
Highlights are a good start to coloring your hair in an alternative way, especially when they're very different shades than your base. Combine highlights and lowlights for a tri-color look or go for the more unnatural colors like bright green or deep purple to make sure the coloring compliments any of the alternative hair styles you choose.
Before you commit to bleaching your dark colored hair to dye it in vivid hues, try a more temporary color solution to make sure the look is right for you.

A decade of social change, especially concerning women, the 60s illustrated the evolving mentalities with new bold hairstyles. See the most important 60s hairstyle trends and find out how you can still sport a similar look, including the famous bouffant hair.
The popularity of Mad Men has brought back renewed interest in everything '60s, from interior design to hairstyle trends. See the most important hair trends that influenced the 60s and are still around with a modern twist.
60s Bouffant Hair
Bouffants are probably the biggest hair legacy of the 60s, adding height through volume. Teasing the hair created new looks for stars like Brigitte Bardot, Jackie Kennedy and Raquel Welch.
The pulled-back bouffant is probably the most resilient hairstyle from the 60s. To get this iconic look, you need to backcomb the front and back sections of the hair across the crown, followed by pulling back the bangs and securing them with bobby pins.
Gaining the extra volume is simple if you apply a styling lotion while your hair is still wet after washing. You can use rollers to create the perfect locks or keep it wavy for the texture that created volume. A strong-hold hairspray is needed for most bouffant looks, one of the popular 60s hairstyle trends.
Brought back by Amy Winehouse, the beehive has plenty of variations, but it's another hairstyle defined by volume and height.
Using a teasing comb, you can create your preferred style of beehive, whether you decide to opt for a cleaner look, with the back sections of your hair secured to the back of the neck, a style sported by Jennifer Lopez, or leave your locks hanging after creating the extra volume on top.
Another of the 60s hairstyle trends that stuck around is the flip, a long bob hairstyle with the ends flipped outwards. You don't need a high-maintenance haircut to get this look, especially if you plan on giving volume on top with a teasing comb, before using rollers one the lower sections of your hair, creating the iconic bell shape.
Popularized by Twiggy in the 60s, the pixie cut doesn't have the volume or height of 60s bouffant hair, but it retains the same femininity. Sported by celebrities like Michelle Williams, Anne Hathaway, Carrie Mulligan and Rihanna, the pixie haircut is the easiest way to jump on board with 60s hairstyle trends without choosing a high-maintenance look.

Brunettes have plenty of color options to look forward to this
year. Highlights for brunettes are gearing up to become the most
important color trend. Check out the top ideas for highlights
for brunettes in Fall 2013 and the hairstyles that go with
Red is the top choice for highlights on brunette thanks to the excellent undertones and texture they bring to dark hair. They're the most elegant option, but this year you can also experiment with bolder choices, from purple to black.
Highlights for Brunettes Fall 2013
From blonde to red highlights, there are plenty of excellent choices that could help you get a trendy look this year.
Bold highlights are getting more popular for brunettes and daring looks are easy to create if you know what you want and have the help of an experienced stylist to get the best results.
How to Choose the Best Highlights for Brunettes
If you're applying highlights on colored hair, you have plenty of options, but when you want to add a bit of spice to your natural hair color, don't go too far. Even if highlights for brunettes are a trendy look for Fall 2013, you shouldn't go further than three shades lighter from your natural hair color for a more down to earth look.
Ash Brown is a great choice for many brunettes and it isn't especially difficult to obtain with a few ash or beige blonde highlights around the crown.
Panels of gold, especially in the front, can be a good look when you're sporting a longer layered hairstyle. Bright blonde highlights are a daring option in your 20s, but for 30+ women red is the most obvious choice.
Choosing light auburn is the best way to go for a warm shade that compliments a medium to fair skin tone. Stay away from it if you have a pinkish skin tone as it can look too red for your complexion.
Hairstyles with Highlights for Brunettes
Modern bobs can be easily improved with gentle highlights that add a bit more texture and volume to the hair. However, the most natural and sexy looking highlights on brunette are usually reserved for longer hair, with layers and curls.
Regardless of the hairstyle you choose this year, make sure you care for your highlights with a clear color gloss, that you should apply every few months. Highlights for brunettes in Fall 2013 depend on shine to work best, so make sure to moisturize your hair thoroughly to enhance your new look.

Hair loss is a much more serious problem for women than for men,
so you should investigate the issue from the first signs of
trouble. Learn about the leading causes of hair loss in
women and see what you can do to prevent it.
From health issues to diet problems and hormonal changes, hair is very sensitive to changes in your body and hair loss isn't always reversible. Fix the problem right after you notice it to make sure you get to keep your beautiful tresses intact.
Causes of Hair Loss in Women: Iron Deficiency
Even if your doctor says your iron levels are within normal range, lowered iron levels can often cause hair loss. Hemoglobin below 140 g/L can contribute to hair loss, like ferritin, the other iron blood test, shouldn't get below 40 ug/L, since it directly affects the hair follicles. Eat more red meat, vegetables that are rich in iron or try a supplement to fix the problem.
Causes of Hair Loss in Women: Mineral Deficiency
A lot of minerals are important for hair growth, but zinc and selenium are the most important. Even if you're eating fresh fruits and vegetables daily, you may not get enough of these minerals for healthy hair, so try supplements that contain natural extracts designed specifically to strengthen hair and prevent hair loss.
Causes of Hair Loss in Women: Lazy Thyroid
Hormones play a big part in the health of your hair and when this gland isn't working properly, the low hormone levels can influence the growth of your hair even if they're still in normal parameters. If you suffer from any other symptoms that could indicate hypothyroidism, including fatigue, dry skin, constipation, difficulty to lose or maintain weight, make sure your thyroid isn't the root of the problem.
Causes of Hair Loss in Women: Telogen Effluvium
There are3 cycles in hair growth, anagen, catagen and telogen with the last one being the lasting one. Telogen effluvium is a phenomenon that shortens the span of the last cycle of hair growth. Caused by pregnancy, extreme stress, extreme weight loss and trauma or surgery, this process can make you lose a lot of hair fast. It can also be caused by medication, so ask your doctor about it.
Causes of Hair Loss in Women: Hereditary Causes
If your hair loss is hereditary and you've noticed the same thinning for other women in your family, use minoxidil (Rogaine) to stop hair loss or at least postpone it.
Washing your hair can have damaging effects on it and on your
scalp if you don't shampoo correctly. Discover what you may have
missed and find out how to shampoo hair the right way .
"Lather, Rinse, Repeat" seem like simple enough instructions, but some people either use too much shampoo or they simply don't apply it correctly. Find out how each step of the shampooing process really works.
When you reach for the shampoo, you should start with a dime-sized quantity. Don't even try to apply it evenly on your hair, the first step is simply meant for your scalp.
All the natural oils on your hair come from the scalp and you should run your fingers through your hair to massage the scalp and start with the part that has the most oils. Don't worry if the shampoo doesn't produce too much lather in this first step. The cleaner your hair will become, the more lather will be produced.
Focus on the back as well, down to the nape, an area usually missed by a lot of people who mainly shampoo the crown. The natural oils, product build-up and dirt can be harder to clean in the back of your head especially if you mostly sleep on your back.
Rinsing is just as important and you shouldn't do it for just a few seconds until you can't feel or see any lather anymore. You should rinse for at least 30 seconds to make sure all the sebum and dirt get cleaned out during the rinsing process. Keep running your fingers through your hair for the entire duration of the process. If you have really thick hair, rinsing is very important and you should always do it with your head held back, to avoid getting shampoo and dirt in your eyes.
Repeat... How Many Times?
Normally, the first repeat, with a smaller quantity of shampoo is enough to clean your hair and you'll see a lot more lather this time around. Work the shampoo along the entire length of your hair for 30 seconds before rinsing. If you wash your hair daily or every other day, you don't need to repeat more than once.
Doing it twice when you shampoo your hair daily can actually strip too much of the natural oils from your scalp and hair.
More and more hair stylists recommend to their clients to skip daily shampooing. If your hair feels dirty, you can use dry shampoo in the days where you skip this step in the shower.
Whether your face is round naturally or is simply plump because of a few extra pounds, you can find a flattering look amongst the best hairstyles to make fat faces slimmer. Check out the most popular slimming haircuts for a fresh look.
Making your face appear slimmer takes the right style and you can use hairstyles for round faces as a starting point. Staying away from extremes when it comes to texture also. Whichever hairstyle to make fat face slimmer you end up choosing, don't forget that a super straight sleek look or a very curly look enhance the roundness of the face.
The bob is one of the best hairstyles for fat faces when done right. Forget about the chin length bob, it's not flattering and it won't look good. Try a longer bob or an asymmetrical bob, like the inverted bob, to make sure the slimming effect is present.
If you love wearing bangs, your options are restricted when your face gets plump. Blunt bangs are off the table, along with thick voluminous fringes.
Gently angled bangs that don't create a straight line across your forehead may be the best choice for traditional bangs. Side-swept bangs or wispy bangs can fit better with hairstyles for fat faces.
Since the medium to long look works best to make fat faces slimmer, ask for long layers when you style your hair. Layers on wavy hair work best to elongate your face. Give up on completely straight hair as not even layers can improve that look and fail to give any slimming effect as good hairstyles for fat faces.
The long messy shag is another great hairstyle to make fat faces look slimmer, and adding layers to it gives volume and texture that frame your face in a more flattering way.
Medium Hair with Deep Side Part
If you'd rather sport a medium hair do, getting a deep side part can help balance your face in a simple and stylish way. Keep your hair textured and add a little volume to make this look work best.
Hairstyles that DON'T Make Fat Faces Slimmer
While the pixie cut is a good choice for round faces, it doesn't always work for more plump faces. If your heart is set on the pixie, make sure it's a big longer than the regular cut, with plenty of texture and volume on top.
If you avoid going super short, stay away from other less flattering styles too: slicked back hair and thick front fringes. Any hairstyle with well-defined lines won't help at all to make fat faces slimmer.
