Fall 2013 hairstyles: reimagining Film Noir.
As one of the main hair trend themes to be shaping the fall 2013 season, the ‘new’ Film Noir is all about cinematic styles defined by a fashionable dark side and high-shine drama. Evolving from fall 2012′s first introduction of the neo-Gothic fashion trend
, the concept of Film Noir brings a womanly kind of beauty under the spotlight, having the hairstyles look as close as being caught in a certain moment in time.

The styles you will be seeing for 2012′s wedding dress
trends are ultra-romantic, chic, and dramatic compared to years past,
with the use of very large tiered skirts, extravagant beading, oversized
flowers, and vintage inspired accessories! Dress designers are getting
more and more creative with their use of fabric, such as crinkled
chiffon and organza, as well as the accessories they are using to adorn
these fabulous dresses. I think this means we are going to be seeing a change in direction for wedding hair as well, more dramatic up styles, and more formal styles hair.
Skip the Bobby Pins, Wear Your Hair Down!
I recommend this when we are PAST the swampy summer humidity and are moving on to the Fall wedding. If you have healthy beautiful hair, consider showing it
off by wearing your locks down. A very simple yet attractive style is
with long, loose, and glamorous waves all through out the hair. This
style fits a beach wedding particularly well, as well as any strapless
wedding gown, as the hair falling over your shoulders and back won’t
hide any of the special details in your dress.
Wedding Worthy Updo’s
Seemingly the most popular style for many weddings, modern Updo’s
have become bigger and better! Think large, french twists, thick buns,
or retro beehives with lots of volume, but without the princess tiara or
bridal veil, giving it a clean, timeless look
_This month I will be outlining different wedding fashion styles, so you can decide which one is right for you.The hair style you choose on your wedding day is one of the most
important details because it can change your look completely, so choose
carefully based on what is flattering for you, fits your personality,
matches the formality of the wedding, and suites well with your gown.
1. Simple Yet Stylish!
Simple has become the new sexy when it comes to current bridal hair
fashions, with Updo’s that look as though you created them yourself. From loose and
tousled to a piled high, thick bun. A loose, simple Updo with loose tresses looks flattering on most women, and can be
accomplished with just about any hairstyle, although a style with lots of
layers will help your stylist accomplish this look easier, and works particularly
well for women with unruly, curly, thick hair. And, for those lucky
brides with small, feminine facial features and high necklines, consider
a tighter pulled back Updo with a flower, hair jewelry, or other hair
accessory to adorn the bun.
Not sure how you want your makeup to look on your big day? My advice:
don’t stray too far away from your everyday makeup. Sure, you want to
be a little more glam, but you also want to look and feel like yourself.
Perhaps just choose one feature that you really want to showcase and
play it up a bit.
Wedding makeup in the past few years has had a bit more of a natural
look, resembling the girl next door. This also rings true for hairstyle
trends. Because you will be captured in hundreds of photos, you do want
your foundation to be layered on a little thicker than usual, but you
don’t necessarily need bright colored lipstick and really rosy cheeks to
bring out the best in your features.
Brushing your hair
before you shampoo is a good thing for your scalp. It will help dislodge dandruff
and assist with good blood circulation which is important for healthy hair
Brushing out dirty hair before you shampoo
will also distribute natural oils down the hair shaft protecting
damage. When you shampoo only wash your scalp. The shampoo will rinse
down your length. Washing your length will dry out your hair and cause
it to be fragile

Color (and style) chameleon Katy Perry has yet again, changed her hair. Let’s break it down, shall we?
While we aren’t sorry to see thecotton candy pink go
this blond layered with light pink thing makes her look a bit washed
out, no? She looks best with darker locks. We don’t hate it, but we
don’t love it either.
Style:Love the asymmetrical bob – totally flatters
her. Katy joins other A-listers like Emily Blunt and Jennifer Aniston
with this fuss-free style.
