Learn How To Do This Fancy Hairstyle Yourself With Just Two Simple Braids

Finding a balance between stylish and simple might be the most complicated feat of all. Everyone is expected to have an effortless beauty, but we all know that even those who exude that kind of beautyhave some kind of routine that they go through to make themselves feel good. Think of all the makeup tutorials you’ve seen that show you how to apply a “natural look,” or how to find a style that’s not tryingtoohard.

My philosophy is that you should follow whatever routine makes you happy! If you want to look effortless, follow that path. If you want to look glamorous, be my guest! If you want to only ever wear jeans and a white T-shirt, with your hair pulled back in a ponytail, I’m sure you’ll pull it off with style and grace.

However, if you want to look glamorous without the time and effort it takes to really get dolled up, learning a few quick hairstyle tips might be the very key you’re looking for.

This hairstyle in particular looks like it took a very long time to perfect. However, it really only took a few short minutes and a bit of knowledge on how to braid. Hint: if you can do a fishtail braid, and if you can do a Dutch braid, you can do this hairstyle. Just grab some clear hair ties and a bobby pin or two and you’re on your way!

Hidden Rainbow Dye: The Beautifully Sneaky Hairstyle With A Dash Of Color

The week before my best friend’s wedding, I did something I had been dreaming about since I was 15: I dyed my hair a vibrant, bright shade of purple. My best friend didn’t mind, of course. My mom, on the other hand, would only admit the color was pretty… but not for hair. I recently ditched it for a darker shade of brown, but I’m still glad I finally made the plunge!

Experimenting with hair colors is one of the most fun things a person can do. The options are practically limitless, depending on how much you’re willing to alter your natural look. You can try somesubtle, ethereal mermaid-inspired tresses, or go all in for some awesome neon action! As my dad usedstay, quoting the Bible of course, a woman’s hair is her crown of glory: so make your crown look as fabulous as you want! That might not be what my dad meant, but I certainly believe it.

After spotting this new trend, I’m definitely think about giving my hairdresser a call. It’s sort of a mixture of the two examples above, both subtle and dazzling at the same time. The trick is hiding the rainbow colors in between two layers of your hair to add a sneaky dash of excitement to your locks. I’ve thought about doing this with just one color, but seeing the old ROYGBIV on display on these ladies, I’m totally inspired to mix it up a little more!

Take a look below and be sure to SHARE the gorgeousnew look with your friends!

Haircuts trimmed by gender-neutral pricing – BBC News

Image caption Klara Vanova believes hairdressers should give customers the exact style they ask for

Coco Chanel once said a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.

The most immediate change she’ll notice is a minor black hole in her finances.

The cost of a simple cut and blow dry for a woman is typically around 50 in London, though admittedly cheaper elsewhere. But it’s almost always significantly less expensive if you’re a man. Why?

The price of going to a hairdresser has traditionally been higher if you’re a woman wanting an elaborate hairstyle, but as men become more choosy about their coiffure, that distinction no longer always holds true.

One barber shop in north London is joining a growing trend of charging for the style, not the gender of the head being coiffured.

Klara Vanova, originally from the Czech Republic, runs Barberette, in Hackney, which she describes as a “hairdressing hub, not a salon” and is a gender neutral barber shop.

She set up her business in 2012 “because of my experience having short hair myself”.

“I have found it absolutely terrifying to go to the hairdressers and ask them for the haircut I want. They will persuade me that the haircut will look too masculine on me, or it will not suit me or it will be too short.

“We offer barber haircuts, which are sharp, clippered haircuts, as well as long hair or texturising haircuts and we don’t put the gender on them. We put our foot down saying, well, why would you be charged more?

“So we offer the haircut the client wants, or if a woman wants very short hair, she knows she can come to us and we give her exactly that, as short as she wants or as long as she wants or as long as he wants.”

Image caption The National Hairdressers’ Federation says specialist techniques can require different pricing

Klara also says it is “unbelievable” that hairdressing remains a “very genderised profession” in an age when identity is broken down not only into men and women but into lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer.

“We have a strong following from the LGBTQ community because they mostly find issues, or they find challenges at a hairdresser, again because it’s so genderised. They didn’t know where to go.

“Traditionally in hairdressing, women are charged much more than men, and if they challenge it then they say, oh, women’s hair is different. So I would like to say, there is no difference between men and women haircuts or hair. It is just simply that in the hairdressing industry you will pay more if you are a woman.”

The truth is it doesn’t all boil down to how long it takes to style the hair. It’s more to do with what economists call price discrimination: people who are willing to pay a higher price will end up being charged more. And women are often happier to spend more on their personal care than men, or were in the past.

But this particular curl of the hairdressing world might be getting straightened out.


Hairdressing, barbering and beauty industry

  • Contributes 7bn to UK economy
  • Provides flexible employment for 300,000 people (part-time and self-employed)
  • 40,000 businesses in the sector – a quarter in London and the South East
  • Two-thirds of hairdressing, barbering and beauty businesses have annual turnover of less than 99,000
  • A quarter have turnover between 100,000 and 250,000
  • Hairdressing and barbering are fifth most popular independent start-ups, with salons eighth most popular
  • According to 2014 survey, average charge for a cut and blow dry was 35.59 and a cut, colour and blow dry was 89.54

A qualification was introduced by City and Guilds last year called Hairdressing and Barbering (NVQ) (6008), which it says “does not qualify [students] to be a barber, but does prepare them for working in a salon that carries out services on male and female clients”.

And the Supercuts chain of hairdressers also has one price list, which applies to both genders. So, the company says, if you are a man with long hair, you’ll pay the same price for a cut and blow dry as if you are female. Equally, a woman who wants a buzz cut pays the same as a male customer.

Jackie Lang, managing director of Regis UK which owns Supercuts, says this approach is growing in popularity among many hair and beauty salons.

“We are seeing the emergence of gender-neutral hair and beauty trends within the social landscape, so providing one generic pricing system helps us to promote fairness and equality throughout our salons,” she said.

Image caption A new qualification is teaching students to work in salons which serve men and women

The Toni&Guy hairdresser chain charges more for women to receive a cut and blow dry than men, although prices do vary between different salons.

Its general manager, Brenda Mail, said the cost of its haircuts is determined by “the length of time you are in the salon and being looked after by a technician or stylist”.

She added: “Traditionally, women would experience a longer appointment, due to the length of time it took to blow dry their hair and the techniques for cutting and colouring used.

“However, these days the difference in price for men and women is getting less all the time, as men are taking more and more time in the salon chair.”

Image caption Some salons say the length of time spent on a woman’s hair means they must pay more

A spokeswoman for the National Hairdressers’ Federation (NHF), the UK trade body for the hairdressing, barbering and beauty business, said some services historically associated with female clients, such as perms and colour, are now becoming more common in men’s hairdressing.

“The costs should not vary just because of their gender, so men using these more complex services can expect to pay the higher prices women typically pay to cover their stylist’s time, skills and the products used,” she said.

But the NHF says that one of the most common services for female clients is a cut, colour and blow dry, which can take two to three hours.

It says factors such as the varying costs of colouring hair, a detailed consultation process and an application involving “specialist techniques which can take years to master” means many salons separate the costs of service on their menus, whether for men, women or colour services.

“However, gender-neutral price lists do help to dispel the myth that men and women are charged different prices, and make it clear that the price reflects the amount of time taken, the skills needed and the products used, not the client’s gender,” the spokeswoman added.

Store Employee Says Zara Discriminated Against Her Natural Hair

Zara is under fire for alleged bias again. This time, an employee at a Zara store in Toronto says management discriminated against her because of her natural hair. 

Cree Ballah, who described herself as biracial, told Canada’s CBC News she was approached by two managers when she arrived at work on March 23. They asked to take her hair out of the box braids she had pulled back into an updo, she said. 

Ballah told Toronto’s City News that the two managers said they were “not trying to offend” her, but told her they were “going for a clean professional look.”

Ballah said they then tried to take matters into their own hands by attempting to “fix” the hairstyle in the middle of a crowded mall. “It was very humiliating… it was unprofessional,” she told CBC. “My hair type is also linked to my race, so to me, I felt like it was direct discrimination against my ethnicity in the sense of what comes along with it.”

Ballah did not respond to a request for comment before publication. City News reports she filed a complaint with Zara’s human resources department. A meeting two weeks later did little to resolve the issue to her satisfaction.

A Zara spokesman told The Huffington Post in part in a statement that the fashion retailer “has no formal policy regarding employees’ hairstyles; we expect all employees to ensure that they present a professional appearance that enables them to serve our valued customers.

“We have engaged directly with the employee on this matter and respect the privacy of those discussions. Zara would never, under any circumstances, ask an employee to remove his or her braids. We are proud of our diverse workforce, and we do not tolerate any form of discrimination.”

Unfortunately, Ballah is hardly the first person to be penalized for their natural hair. Earlier this month, Akua Agyemfra, a server at Jack Astor’s restaurant in Toronto, was sent home for wearing her hair in a bun. In 2012, Louisiana meteorologist Rhonda Lee claimed she was fired from her job for defending her natural hair on-air after it was criticized online. 

Zara has a less than perfect history when it comes to relationships with both its customers and employees. Back in 2015, the brand was accused of showing racial bias toward customers and employees, and it has, on more than one occasion, been criticized for carrying offensive products

Dry scalp treatment

Various causes of the dry scalp and the dry scalp treatment

The basic reason for the dry scalp is said to be the lack of enough natural oils in the body. The skin’s sebaceous glands secrete lipids and the oil which is important for maintaining the natural moisture of scalp and the hairs. The hairs and the scalp become dry if it is stripped of this natural lubrication.  The dry scalp in turns causes itching, flaking and the brittle hairs which can break easily. It is a well known fact that if you know the causes, you can get the appropriate dry scalp treatment. So, the various causes of the dry scalp are as follows

One of the major reasons of the dry scalp is the harsh hair cleansers or shampoos. Some of the hair shampoos or the cleansers contain various chemicals which remove the natural oil from the head. For preventing this, you should avoid the hair shampoos or cleansers which contain the anti-bacterial substances as these substances tend to be abrasive. If you would like to use any anti-dandruff shampoo, you should use one which has the moisturizing properties while you are continuing with the dry scalp treatment. When you finish your dry scalp treatment, you should discontinue using the anti-bacterial shampoo with the moisturizing properties.  After that, you should switch to the milder shampoo and limit the times when you use shampoo to wash your hairs in a week.

The indiscriminate use of hot water in the bath or the shower is one of the major reasons of the dry scalp. If you do not want to strip off the lipids from your hairs and the skins, you should start using warm to lukewarm water for bath and shower. If you prefer hot water to bath and shower, you can cover your head and hairs with the shower cap. Afterwards, you can wash your scalp with the cool water.

Dry scalp leads to the brittle hairs, itching and flaking which is not good for the smooth and silky hairs. So, if you are having dry scalp problem, do not waste time and take dry scalp treatment.
