Umm… As far as I know, there’s no actual name for the cut. But I and other stylists refer to it as a “V cut”.
If I were you, I’d just either bring in the picture- because pictures help us a lot! or just ask them to bring all your hair back and cut it into a V with layers put in after the V.
The way we do layers, is by connecting where we want the shortest layer to be, to the bottom of the hair. So if they already have the V in place, the layers will follow suit.
And I don’t think it’d be the best idea to cut your own hair. I wouldn’t even trust myself to cut my hair- it just gets too tricky on long hair.
Go into any salon and show them the picture, and they should know what to do.
Or you could call around and ask!
I hope this helps!
Do you mean a bow made out of hair, or a braid with a bow? I’m not too sure what you mean!
Well I could tell you now, but if you’ll wait about a week, I’m going to the Midwest Hair Show in Chicago this next weekend- so I’ll know ALL the newest trends then :)
I’ll write a big post about it and post pictures!
I love Paula’s Choice Illicit Lash Maximum Impact Mascara. It thickens and lengthens :)
And for light skin and freckles, I would stay away from actual LIPSTICK, and go for maybe a tinted balm, or a lip gloss. If you don’t like the shine, you can always blot it and it’ll leave the color but take away the shine.
But anyways, for color choices, try to stick with tones a shade or two darker than your natural color. It’s pretty simple. You just don’t want something too bold or too bright. Just something to accentuate your natural color, and add some dimension to your face.
Hope this helps! :)
First, when you’re applying your liner, make sure it’s as thin as possible. The thicker the line, the more closed your eye appears.
If you’re going to use eyeshadow, use light colors. They will open up your eye more. The last thing you want is for them to appear smaller. Which is what happens when you use dark colors.
Shimmers, and light colors work best, and make sure you don’t apply it all over your lid. Keep it primarily just above your eyeliner.
Use a few coats of mascara, and try to lengthen them with every coat.
Of course curling your lashes will open them up more as well, so if you don’t have a lash curler, you can get a pretty inexpensive one at the store. Don’t be afraid of them! They won’t bite :) Just place it right at the lash line, and press it together. Hold for about 8-10 seconds and release. Easy as that!
Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions!
Lucky for you- you can use the most variety of colors since there are a lot of colors that complement brown eyes!
Generally, tans, bronzes, greens and blues are the most commonly used colors for brown eyes. Just make sure that if you use a brown or a blue, that you use light colors and colors that aren’t close in color to your actual eye.
Blues work the best though. Play around with lighter colors, and you can add shimmers into it too!
You could go get a large pallet of colors and just play around for a bit!
Hope it helped! :)
Well, if I’m thinking of the same thing you are, it’s a hairstyle used on African American hair.
You cut your hair into an inverted bob, or a similar short cut, and part it. Hold onto the top of your head, using a fine toothed comb or brush, wrap the hair towards the side of your head with the greater amount of hair (after you parted it).
After it’s wrapped around your head, spray it down with oil sheen and protect it with a scarf.
It’s going to leave your hair soft, silky, and straight. :)
Hope this helped!!
Well I’ve dealt with acne problems too, so I feel your pain!
As far as the dry skin, all I can suggest is to use a gentle exfoliant on it. Use that and a luffa and just scrub. After you get out of the shower, if you rub your hands on the softened skin, you can usually get more off too.
After you get a lot of the dead skin off, moisturize every day. A ‘butter’ might be best to use. Like Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula. It has a strong scent, but there’s also an unscented formula that you could try.
For blush, choose a light or bright pink color. Suck in your cheeks and your cheek bones will pop out, and smile big to find the apples of your cheeks. Just make sure to use a big puffy brush. Most brushes say what they’re used for, including blush brushes. Follow your cheek bones to the apples of your cheeks and you’ll have nicely sculpted cheek bones!
Hope this helps!! :)
Thank you! :) I’m so glad it worked for you too!! It’s definitely some awesome stuff!!
Could you comment on the picture you’re talking about? I’m sorry! I don’t know what one you’re referencing!
I didn’t realize!! Thank you for letting me know!! I don’t know why they’re small actually. I’ll definitely try to fix it!
Thank you for letting me know, and for the blog love :)
Take Biotin pills, get regular trims, try not to use too much heat on your hair, and treat your hair like your baby!
Not too much you can do, but those are your best bets!
Did you see the tutorial I posted the other day? I can repost it. But basically just match your own eye shape up to it, and that will tell you what eye shape you have, and then you’ll be able to do your makeup to match your eye shape!
I’ll repost the tutorial in case you didn’t see it :)
For sure :)
I’ll get on that asap!
I definitely know what you mean! I’ve been there :)
But yea what I’ve found, is that going ACROSS, and not with or against the grain is your best bet. It gives you a really close shave. And another thing I’ve found, is that you should try to let it grow for as long as possible in between shaves, and you’ll get a closer shave then too. Like…if your boyfriend or husband (or girlfriend) is going to be out of town for a week, let it grow! and shave the day they come home. It’ll be an awesome shave.
Another thing that will help with razor burn and stubble, is moisturizer. I don’t know if you saw my post a few days ago- but Aquaphor is amazing for that. When you first feel it, you’ll think it’s way to thick to be moisturizer. But trust me. It’s amazing.
Hope this helps!!
Can you comment on which picture I posted and I’ll be glad to write up a tutorial for it :)
Well, I would suggest getting some short layers to cover it up. If you want to go the chemical route, you could get a relaxer done, and have them focus on the cowlick. Also, depending on the cut and placement of the cowlick, you could try backcombing it. I’ll post a picture right after this posting, and you could try that haircut out. It’d look good with backcombing, and also has short layers.
Hope this helps!
I will definitely try to find more!
Thank you for the input, and for the blog love :)
Thank you :) And I couldn’t tell you exactly. Unfortunately I didn’t do that hair cut or color. I’m guessing an increase layered cut, and maybe like…4GB and 5G cocktail? That’d be my best guess…Sorry I couldn’t be of more help for this question!
Okay, so at the crown of your head, where the bump starts, kind of make an outline for the bump with your hair. pretty much just a circle of hair on the back of your head :)
Make sure to leave hair surrounding it to cover the bump.
Start at the top of the circle on your head and take a section horizontally. Hold it straight up, spray with hair spray, and back comb it. Hair spray again, and let it flop forward on your head. Continue down the circle of hair with horizontal partings and make sure to hair spray it a lot.
Once you have the circle entirely back combed, pull it all down from the top of your head, and begin molding it. Don’t smush it down too much, just pull the sides in to make the bump effect.
Bobby pin once you have the bump how you like it, and then pull the extra hair you left to cover the bump over it. Bobby pin that too. Then you can pull the sides of your hair up or do whatever you feel like :)
Hope this helped!
