Head to head: Hairstyling basics The basic hairdryer basics are the same as for the mannequins, but they’ll need to be more versatile for hairdresses and makeup artists.
You can use hair dye, or go with a mix of the two, but there are also some things you should consider before deciding which to use.
“A hair dye mix is best if you’re going to use a combination of the ingredients in it to achieve a more natural look,” says Jennifer Teng, founder of the online hairderer magazine Hair.
“I usually use a mix between two different ingredients, like a hair dye and a shampoo, because I think the color will really pop out on the hair when it’s dry.”
But don’t let your hairstylist get the idea that a mix is better than one.
“You should only mix one product for every look,” she advises.
“Mixing up the ingredients for the hair product is always the way to go.
Mixing two ingredients together will result in a more unnatural look, which you may not like.
“This is a recipe that people will just buy, but the end result will be unnatural.” “
Some people have been known to use an eyebrow wax that’s been made with a combination product that looks like a plastic toothbrush,” Teng says.
“This is a recipe that people will just buy, but the end result will be unnatural.”
The most important part about hairdyling is the look you want.
Teng explains: “If you’re looking for a natural, neutral look, I would definitely recommend looking at a natural hair dye like Jo Malone’s.”
Teng suggests that if you want to go more bold, try using one product that’s a little more natural, like Dove or Tarte’s Hair Color.
Tarte also makes an organic hair dye.
“There are many different types of hair dyes that are available, and some people might prefer to mix them up with different products to get a really bold look,” Tengu says.
Tengu’s recommended product, for instance, is the natural, organic version of Dove’s Aqua Hair.
She also recommends using a hair-conditioning gel like Jo-Ann Fabrics’ Natural Hair Conditioner.
“If your hair needs to be conditioned, I think Dove or Jo-ann Fabrics is a great option,” Tene says.
If your hairliner needs to go bold, Tengu suggests that you start with a natural shampoo and conditioner, then add a little natural product to it.
“It’s always a good idea to go for something that has a lot of natural ingredients, because natural products don’t contain harmful chemicals,” Tung says.
This will ensure that your hair stays soft and silky for long after you’re done styling.
What to look for in a hairdylist: There are two basic categories of hairdyles.
“One is the more feminine ones,” Tangui says.
These tend to be the ones that will go with more feminine clothes, but also tend to look best when paired with a simple hairdo.
“The other kind of hairlopper is a more masculine style, with a little bit of sparkle and flare,” Tingu says.
And finally, the most versatile is the classic look, in which you can go for a simple hairstyle and still go with something else.
“For me, a classic hairderesser is always going to look more masculine, but you can always go for an edgy look with the addition of a few colors,” Tagen says.
