Q: I love the head band look, but I have bangs and I think it would make me look 6 years old! What do you think? Would it help if I chose a thicker one or a thinner one?
A: Choosing a thinner one would be great. It wouldn’t overpower your face but would give a stylish edge. Multiple thin headbands are popular right now and look really chic. They’re also easy to use!
Q: Bangs are so popular right now, but I don’t know if it’s for me. I think it looks so great on some people, but if it doesn’t look good it takes so long to grow them out. Do you recommend bangs for a heart-shaped face?
A: Heart-shape faces can look great with side-swept bangs – it gives the illusion of a more oblong feel and a perfect oval shape.
This solution is ideal for you because the fringe would be quite long and therefore not as big a commitment. You can also keep the bangs light so it’s a more subtle look. I’d reccomend that you have a consultation with a stylist.
Q: I’m a huge fan of the bob. I know it was really popular a few months ago, but I don’t see as many on celebrities anymore. Is it still in style?
A: Bobs are such a classic shape, that they’re always in style! In the end it comes down to what suits you and your face shape. A stylist can help you determine this.
As well, there are so many variations of the bob, that there’s surely something that will work for you.
Go for it!
Q: I love the fauxhawk look for men and I totally think it would suit my boyfriend, but I feel like the trend is on the way out. What do you think?
A: I think this is a trend that’s staying – but as a more subtle version. In fact both David Beckham and I are currently sporting a soft version of the look!
Tell him to do it!
Q: I love the Jessica Simpson extensions but worry they can look fake. How can you make sure extensions look good?
A: Hair extensions are fantastic if you want longer, fuller hair but quality varies greatly. You need to know what you’re looking for. Two common types of extensions are bonded or clip-in. A good quality bonded extension is long-lasting whereas clip-ins are for temporary wear. Another factor is the hair itself – both synthetic and natural hair options are available as extensions. Look for a salon, like Civello, that offers bonded extensions with 100% natural hair. At your consultation, ask if anyone working in the salon has the extensions – that way you’ll see them firsthand!
