Sun and salt water can bleach any hair color, but when you don't have a month to spend at the beach, you can try different solutions to get the beach blonde hair.
While they also give you the sun-kissed hair you want, UV rays and sea salt can also affect the health of your hair, so trying beach blonde highlights is a better way to get the look without the damage to your hair.
Beach Blonde Highlights
Hair colorists have different techniques to create the perfect beach blonde hair look. Some use foil highlights while others prefer the balayage hair coloring technique, which gives you a more natural look. Find out what type of highlights to ask for or to create yourself, based on your base color and on how light you're willing to go.
Going Beach Blonde Hair Based on Natural Color
Bleaching can mimic the sun-kissed look even for brunettes, offering a beach look easy to get with a simple home application kit. While brunettes are restricted to bleaching by two or three shades, if you have medium or light brown hair, you can go for more lighter shades. Creating the natural look can include strands of hair up to eight shades lighter.
Getting the beach blonde look is really easy for blondes, that can choose from a variety of streaking kits and apply blonde highlights in the places the sun hits the hair, around the face and around the crown.
For naturally light blondes, or women who've already bleached their hair to go blonde, the solution to beach blonde hair is sun-in spray, that usually gets the hair ¼ lighter with each application.
Simple Solutions for Beach Blonde Hair
Natural ways to lighten hair and get the beach look include simple remedies, from herbal tea to lemon juice. Either buy a shampoo with chamomille or make a cup of chamomile tea and slowly rinse it through your hair before taking a shower. Let the tea sit for up to 15 minutes and repeat to maximize the effects.
Another simple way to avoid using bleach is to mix 3 parts fresh lemon juice with 1 part vodka. While chamomile tea can be applied to your entire hair, this natural solution for beach blonde hair color should be contained to specific strands. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes without the liquid spreading to other strands, then rinse your hair.
Whether you opt for beach blonde highlights or a more natural solution, make sure you condition your hair thoroughly to protect it from any damage for the perfect sun-kissed look.
Fine hair that lacks volume and looks limp is not a good look. It's usually genetically predetermined, but you can try a few ways to make your hair get the extra thickness and volume.
Diet supplements like liquid lecithin and protein-based combinations for your hair work differently on each person with fine hair, but the fundamentals of caring for fine hair are the same.
How to Thicken Fine Hair: Cutting and Styling
Getting the right hairstyle for fine hair can thicken it indirectly, by giving it volume and a neater appearance. Try to avoid layers and choose a haircut with the same length done by a professional with fine hair experience and keep your ends trimmed every six weeks.
You should only use products specifically formulated for fine hair, thickening products that have the best effects for your hair type. Always blow-dry fine hair while you bend over with a low heat setting. Drying it from the underside also allows you to use your fingers to give it more texture as it dries.
Besides using the right thickening products, sleeping on a silk pillowcase and regularly massaging your scalp can prevent breakage and slow growth. Neither will thicken fine hair, but they help with maintaining your hair looking good.
How to Thicken Fine Hair: Nourishing
You can try different hair treatments for fine hair, but you should also know what the most and least effective natural options are. Use a nourishing and volumizing treatment 2 tablespoons of Aloe Vera gel, 1 teaspoon of honey, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 ounce of water. Coat your entire hair with the mixture and let it sit for 30 minutes before shampooing.
Don't use oat flour treatments for fine hair. While it's packed with protein, it doesn't penetrate through the outer layers of the hair strands, making it a waste of time.
Best Hair Thickening Products
If you have a favorite brand of cosmetics, try their line of products for fine hair first. Not pleased? The best thickening products are shampoo and conditioner that work together. Pantene Pro-V Full & Thick Collection gets many great reviews, along withBumble and bumble thickening shampoo and cconditioner, which make hair more manageable.

Men's undercut hair is making a comeback thanks to the retro vibe of TV shows like Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire. Undercut hairstyles for men, whether inspired by the 1920s or 1960s, have been sported on many celebs and they can be the right choice for any sophisticated man.
When choosing the right undercut hairstyle, men should take into account their hair type as long as the maintenance requirements of such haircuts.
Before you ask your barber or stylist for one of the many undercut hairstyles for men, you need to consider how far up the short sides and back will be and how long the hair will be at the top. The shape of your face and head should come into consideration when choosing a specific type of men's undercut hairstyles.
Slick Back Undercut Hairstyles for Men
Thanks to celebrities like David Beckham, the hottest look when sporting the undercut hairstyles for men is the slicked back look, but that's not the only choice. Longer on the sides than the edgy undershave, undercut hairstyles for men look best with longer or angular faces, but come in a variety of styles suited to many face shapes and hair types.
For the shorter sides and back you can opt for having your hair cut with scissors over comb or with clippers. The second option works best with number 2 or 3 clippers that give you a sharp look. You can also blend different lengths to get the most flattering style. For a thinner temple, you can go extra short with number 1 clippers, then ask your stylist to blend into 2 and 3 on the sides and on the back.
When getting the undercut hairstyle, men should remember that the longer on top, the better. The extra length will give you plenty of style options, including the popular slicked back look.
For the finishing touches, make sure the outline is sharp both on the sides and the back of the head, blending between the top and sides isn't the trendy look you're going for.
How to Style Undercut Hairstyle for Men
Straight hair is the best option for undercut hairstyles for men, but sporting a wavy or curly mane is also a great fashion statement for men with a more daring style.
Men's undercut hairstyles need a bit more maintenance than most haircuts and the product of choice is a lightweight hair gel for the slick look. You can style your new undercut hairstyle with your favorite brand of gel, or try new options like the Bed Head Power Play gel or the Crew firm hold styling gel for men.See also:

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the shiniest locks of them all? A recent survey made by Kérastase on 2,000 women revealed that Kate Middleton has the most beautiful and healthiest hair. Yes, the Duchess of Cambridge has been named Britain's hair icon! So, the gorgeous mom-to-be draws attention not just due to her impeccable maternity outfits but also with her hair that has enviable bounce and body. Cheryl Cole came second and Holly Willoughby, third.
The poll also unveiled 70 per cent of women want more voluminous tresses, and when asked what one thing they would change if they could, 40 per cent said they would like thicker, fuller-looking hair.
Kérastase Ambassador Luke Hersheson said that, “Most women will be able to relate to these findings. As we enter our late teens and twenties, most women have yet to find their signature style. They are happy to try different colors, experiment with different lengths and use various tools like tongs, rollers and hair straighteners to achieve a certain look.”
According to the same survey, the '80s was the worst decade for hair while many women admitted to trying the famous Rachel cut in the '90s.
“Certain hairstyles come and go in fashion like any other trend and it’s only natural that women try and replicate the latest look. Having said that, constantly changing styles and hair color can take its toll, and as we age our hair density and condition can be affected,” Hersheson explained.
Moreover, the Kérastase survey revealed that women feel their hair is its most beautiful at the age of 29. One in ten women said they regretted three of the styles they have sported in their lives.
“As women move in to their thirties and beyond they tend to invest more in their hair and look after it using the right treatments. Most of them reach the age where they want their hair to look healthy, full of body and thicker, rather than opting for the trendiest hair which has come straight off the catwalk, ” Kérastase Ambassador Luke Hersheson said.

Getting big hair with extra volume on your roots is something most women with straight or flat hair want. Teasing is the easiest way to achieve that effect for the hairstyle of your choice. Find out how to tease your hair, including the most important dos and don'ts and products that can make it much easier.
Most importantly, never tease your hair hair when it's wet or tangled. Even using the most gentle hairstyling instruments, you risk tearing and even pulling your hair roughly.
How to Tease Your Hair The Right Way
After washing your hair and treating it with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner, you need to blow dry it completely before starting to tease it at the roots. Blow drying your hair while keeping your head down can also help create extra volume and so does curling it gently.
It's best to start at the root with small sections of your hair working your way towards the ends. Focus on the crown area in rows to get the best results and leave the sides for last.
You should aim for more volume rather than less, since it's a lot easier to tone it down than to go back for more teasing. When you're done, smooth down the teased section by using your fingers to get a more natural look.
Common Hair Teasing Mistakes
Trying to tease too much hair at one time is the biggest mistake of beginners. If you decide to work with 1 inch wide sections, you'll get the best results, but the process can be time consuming. Working in 2 inch sections does the job faster, but the bigger the sections get, the less volume you're likely to get.
Brushing too hard is another big mistake you should avoid when learning how to tease your hair. Getting the extra volume is rarely worth the hair damage.
Teasing hair with too much product in it is another wrong move. You can use a little hairspray, but don't overdo or load your hair with serums before teasing.

Using a regular hair brush can give you some volume, but when you go for the special tools, your chances of success increase a lot. Start out with a simple tool like the Revlon Moonlight Teasing Brush or the Spornette Big Wonder Teasing Brush if you want to get it done quickly and efficiently.
Increase your chances for the right volume with the Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Teasing Dust. It boosts roots and adds roughed-up volume if you backcomb your hair right away.

Victoria Beckham, who won the Woman Of The Decade Award, said as she accepted the title that, “I kind of wish I'd written notes now... I'd like to start by congratulating all the women tonight, and also Harry Potter. I like to celebrate women... Girl power! What Myleene said was right, we need to support each other. Thank you Brooklyn, the best looking man in the room tonight, for being my date. Thank you David... And the other man in my life, Simon Fuller. And wow, what an amazing 10 years... Here's to the next 10 years. I was just thinking, I will be nearly 50.”
One of the celebrities that wowed at this year's GLAMOUR Women of the Year Awards 2013 was Rita Ora. The songstress, who won the GLAMOUR Award for Solo Artist, looked breathtaking in a Marchesa gown, wore her hair in a chic chignon. Hayden Panettiere and Samantha Barks chose instead a rather understated updo style that looked sexy. Amanda Byram, on the other hand, went for a super-sleek version of the classic chignon that glammed-up her appearance.
Okay, so we have to admit that Jenna-Louise Coleman's top knot was a real attention-getter! This famous 'do looks amazing and it's a great choice for any occasion. Celebrities prove this fact since even more beauties choose to wear a top knot on the red carpet in front of the paparazzi lenses. Lisa Snowdon and Jourdan Dunn went for the timeless ponytail but each came with her own interpretation of this versatile 'do that can be worn in many outstanding ways. VV Brown showed everyone that she can really make bangs and braided pigtails red-carpet-appropriate.

Messy hairstyles might end up being one of the hottest hair trends this year. With an off-center parting, medium length hairstyles work best with added volume and loose curls.
Add texture with styling wax on some sections for a fuller look or opt for the side part with a more casual and urban look. Use a volume spray mousse when the hair is still damp and blow dry it to enhance its natural texture.

Medium Length Haircuts with Bangs
Longer bangs are making a comeback with the new interpretations of fringes. Try a long look that sweeps the top of the eyes and keep it messy and textured.

Is that Amber Rose with long hair? We almost couldn't believe our eyes, but it's true: Amber Rose ditched her signature 'do in favor of ultra long looks becoming almost unrecognizable at a superficial glance. If the star herself hadn't reveled her new hairstyle via Instagram, perhaps we would still be doubting it. Though her Tweet "I'm gonna Do Cam with my hair on tonight...This should be interesting :-)," anticipated the surprise, it's safe to say that nothing prepared fans for the dramatic makeover.
Given the fact that she sported the shaved-head look ever since she was 19 any change would have been quite dramatic by comparison but going for extreme length definitely took it to the next level. So, when she attended Juicy J's concert at the House of Blues in L.A and showed her new look (achieved with the help of a wig, obviously) via Instagram, it definitely stirred a lot of reactions, most of them positive. Whether she decides to keep the new look or not, the style is definitely memorable. Still, though the newly long light brown locks were the first focal point, the photo unveiled by the 29 year old star also revealed a surprisingly toned physique, at less than four months after giving birth.
Though it's unclear whether Amber Rose's long hairstyle will be a long lasting change, her smoking hot body most likely will. The star is already feeling confident enough to sport a curve-hugging neon green dress at such a short time after becoming a mother, so bolder looks will likely follow. Amber Rose's post baby body definitely looks amazing, yet the journey to getting back her sexy curves was certainly effort-intensive. Losing 30 pounds in such a short time interval isn't easy yet the star was determined enough to achieve it.
The star told E! News that getting rid of baby weight is much more difficult than losing typical excess pounds, but that her trainer helps her stay motivated to work hard every single day: “It's hard to get off baby weight. It's a different kind of weight because for nine months you stretch your stomach out and then it's hard to get that back. I'm working on it. I lost like thirty-some pounds already. “I have a really good personal trainer. Her name is Jeanette Jenkins. Yeah, I work out every day,” she confessed.

Not having bangs is a lot easier, but they are fashionable and versatile and almost every woman gave this haircut a try this season. But once you decided to take the plunge and brush your bangs to the side, the growing out bangs process can be difficult and can make you cringe when you see some intermediary steps. However, there are hair styling options for growing out bangs, starting with a soft side bang, slowly transitioning to a center part, almost-winged look.
Consider these hairstyle ideas for growing out bangs to make your transition both easy and stylish.
Blending Bangs In
The first phase of growing out your bangs is obviously to let them grow! If you can deal with being able to see through your bangs, try this simple hairstyle and wear your fringe down, blended into long layers. The finish to this growing out bangs hairstyle should only appear blunt: you texturize the ends with TRES Two Extra Hold Hair Spray. However, too much of it will make your layers look heavy.
Side Styled Ponytail
Once your bangs have grown out, turning into a major fringe, they can be smoothly pulled to the side and hidden in a pony. To style your growing out bangs properly, your tresses should be loosely braided to help hold your bangs in place.
Tight Front Braid
A front braid is an ideal hairstyle for growing out bangs as it tucks-in your short hairs. Flyaway hairs are usually an issue for most women, so smooth them with Straight Sexy Hair Smooth & Seal Aerated Anti-Frizz And Shine Spray when you're done styling.
Pinned to the Side
This is one of the easiest ways to get your hair looking chic and off your forehead. To get this hairstyle for your growing bangs, you need to simply pin them to the side with a Jane Tran Hair Accessories Pearl Bobby Pin (or a jeweled clip, such as Rhinestone Bobby Pin, if you're feeling festive) for a pretty, retro style.
A blunt bob or lob is a great cut for mid-length bangs. This hairstyle for growing out bangs is pushed to the side and mingled with a piecey cut.
With the right amount of Carol's Daughter Heat Styling Hair Spray Macadamia, you can always slick your growing bangs back into a ponytail. Secure this hairstyle for growing bangs with 4 Count Decorative Bobby Pins.
Styled with Headband
If your growing out bangs are too short or the hairspray doesn't do the trick, add a simple black Jane Tran Hair Accessories Crystal Bead Shimmer Headband or a Deepa Gurnani Macrame Headband for a sweet style.
