Anne Hathaway is the perfect example of what we have to watch out for when changing one’s style. This short bob gives her the appearance of a very boxy and full face. It does not enhance her cheek bones or jaw line. Also, it squares off her already broad shoulders, throwing the proportion off balance.

First, the right tools are essential. Choose a professional blowdryer fitted with a nozzle at the end. Our favorite is the Twin Turbo. Using a nozzle on the end of your hair dryer will help to reduce flyaways and get you better control of your roots. Next, use brushes with high quality, all natural bristles. Boar bristles are ideal for coarse and curly hair, while the silk bristles work well with fine or damaged hair. The size of your brush is determined by the length of your hair and your desired end result. The longer your hair or the straighter you’d like your ends to be, the larger the brush size you use. For shorter hair or for long hair that desires bounce and wave, choose a brush with a smaller diameter. Purchase Here.
Now that you’ve got the right tools, it is important that you follow up with great products. Start off with a high quality shampoo and conditioner. Next, you will need to prep your hair with the right products before any blowdrying starts. When making a product decision, ask yourself: is my hair dry? is my hair oily? do I want volume? how much hold do I need my hair to have? do I need an anti-humectant to fight frizz? do I want to define my natural curls? or do I want to smooth them out? Then go to Shop AKS for the best of the best products! Ask yourself the questions above then type your answers into the search tool of Shop AKS, Voila! the right products for your hair will pop right up!
For accelerated hair growth, take a daily hair and nail vitamin like Phytophanere. Start looking for pictures of the hairstyle that you want once it’s grown out. Show that to your stylist and have a conversation with them on what they believe is the best process to get you there. In the meantime it is important to trim the tips of your hair regularly to keep a shape in your hair as it grows out. You will want to treat your hair regularly as well to deter the growth of split ends. Use masks like Phytojoba 1x a week.

A probable cause for your hair reacting the way it is is if it has a natural wave to it and it was thinned using a razor or thinning shears. The use of these tools on hair that is not dead straight tends to make it difficult to style and control the ends. To improve your situation, try using a leave in conditioner like Phyto 7 on your ends and put a little more work into styling your ends with a silk bristled brush. Once your hair has grown out a little, trim the ends using a blunt ends technique.
Shorter hair does not have to be unflattering. It sounds like your hair could really use the recharging a shorter haircut would deliver. Be sure to cut your length in a flattering proportion to your neck and torso so your face does not look fuller. Properly proportioned angles and layers will create angles in your face, defining your features. Good layers will also enable you to embrace your natural texture and keep you from damaging your hair by over styling it. Talk to your stylist about the best look for you!
Find a celebrity whose style you like that has similar face shape to yours and emulate their look. Ask yourself: Is the haircut your requesting right for you? Does the person in the photo have similar face shape and hair texture as you? Will you be able to style it in a relatively similar fashion?
The process to achieving a great hairstyle starts with a properly proportioned haircut. In order for hair strands to fall into place perfectly, they must be cut perfectly. Hair should be cut according to the way it grows, that way strands can interlock with each other and allow for a graceful growing out of the cut. This cutting method also allows for ease of style. If hair is cut the way it grows, it does not HAVE to be blow-dried to look good. Next, hair must be cut in a proportion most flattering to your face shape. You want angles and layers that highlight your best features and diminish your least favorite.
For a masculine look, you can part your hair down the center and let it loose. Run a 2 inch curling iron loosely through the ends and add AKS Serum for a silkier effect.
Alternately, you can use lots of gel to slick back the top of the hair and pull into a low ponytail.
