You can have firm skin and a fit body, but if you hair seems worn out, so will the rest of you. Luckily, a few tweaks can turn back the clock on your locks.
Add bright highlights around your face.
Just like a dusting of bronzer perks up your skin, a few golden streaks scattered throughout the front section of your mane cast a subtle glow on your face, making creases less noticeable, says N.Y.C. salon owner Antonio Prieto. If you have breakage around your hairline, though, it’s best to skip lightening there, since delicate strands can fray even more during processing. Opt for ribbon-thin highlights under the top layer of your hair instead, suggests San Diego salon owner Jet Rhys.
Just like the rest of us, celebs make occasional style missteps, and Lena Headey is guilty as charged! Jet Rhys of Jet Rhys Salon in San Diego, CA explains what makes one of the actress’ recent styles much better than the other.
This ruler-straight, wig-like look plays up Lena’s square jaw and her hair lacks movement. “She’s a real beauty, but this makes her facial features look too hard,” says Rhys.
Lena’s “middy” falls to mid-neck and gains lots of movement from side-swept fringe and pieced-out ends. It looks more current and it de-emphasizes her square jaw.
The stronger your features, the softer and more playful your hair should be, so put down your flat iron!

Forget what cut you’re going to get for spring, for the new season it’s all about color!
Are you ready to make a big change to accentuate the season? For decades, color has been the accessory to a hairstyle, but for 2012, things have changed…
Celebrity colorist Jet Rhys says, “This spring, hair color is going to be the new cut. With the latest techniques and an explosion of color, you can personalize your style.”
The color that will be on the forefront—rose gold, a blonde with a touch of pink. Jet describes it as, “Very effervescent, this new blonde has a signature quality and can be a very personalized, adaptable tone that works on all skin tones. To get the look, infuse two different shades of blonde such as Bigen Semi-Permanent Golden Blonde and Light Cognac. The color combination will add a very expensive hue to your look.” Much like the rose gold jewelry that’s been trending, this is going to be the go-to color for hair in the warmer months.
According to hair stylist Naz Kupelian, some of the other hottest hair color trends right now that we are are seeing light reds (strawberry blondes), low contrasting streaks with pops of bright colors, pale blondes, rich chocolate shades, multidimensional browns with subtle low lights and highlights and the ombre look with lighter ends is sticking around!
