| Blog, Hair & Beauty | December 6, 2012

2012 has been a big year for bold hair styles and colours as more people start to experiment to find a look which suits them. So as we draw closer to the end of the year, let’s take a look back on some of the trendiest hair colours that came around this year.

Dip Dye

One of the most noticeable hair colour trends from 2012 has been the dip dye and many people seemed to jump on this trend. A fashion not just for teenagers, the dip dye can be seen on women and men of all ages. Dip dying is a method of leaving your hair with a natural colour, whilst having a complimenting, or even outrageous colour to the ends of the hair – making it look like it has been dipped in the colour.

Ombré Hair Colour

This hair colour is a great option for those with brunette hair as adding the extra colour can bring some life to the hair. Ombré hair colour means that the hair gradually changes from light to dark, giving the hair size and volume. Many celebrities opted for this hair style in 2012 and it could be staying for 2013.

| Hair & Beauty | March 2, 2012

Split ends occur when the protecting hair cuticles get stripped away from the ends of hair fibers, therefore leaving your hair fibers weak and causing your hair to start fraying.  Although more often seen in long hair it can also occur in short hair that is not in good condition.

Rooney Mara's Lovely Short Hair

Rooney Mara's Lovely Short Hair

Marilyn Monroe was such an icon and trendsetter that even playing her in a movie can pass on some of that trend-setting weight by association. Michelle Williams’ starring role in “My Week With Marilyn” has brought her critical attention and a ticket to awards show season, where trends are often set for the year. All the stars look their best at an awards show, but few this year look as free and easy as Michelle Williams. There’s just something about short hair.

 

Like a young woman after a bad break-up, the short hairstyles that are coming into vogue for 2012 have the air of a fresh start. Unencumbered by the long-haired woes of tabloid favorites like J.

| Hair & Beauty | July 4, 2011

We’ve put together 10 of our favourite natural hair growth tips that have stood the test of time and that should help you on your way to grow longer luscious locks:

Therefore, it is essential that these lost nutrients get replaced. Protein will give the shaft of your hair more strength, will reduce the chances of damage and also accelerate growth.
