Holiday Hairstyles for Every Texture and Length

Holiday parties provide the perfect opportunities to go all-out with your hair. No matter what texture or length your hair is, there’s likely a hairstyle you’ve thought about trying before but never have for any given reason. And if you haven’t thought about what hairstyles you’ll rock this holiday season, we’ve got some inspiration for you that may only require adding some hair products for Remy hair to your collection. 

Tucked Back Clean Part

This hairstyle is best suited for people with mid-length hair that goes down to around the shoulders or a little longer. Create a straight part right down the middle of your head and then put some small barrettes right above each ear to keep it tucked back. You don’t need many hair products for Remy hair to achieve this hairstyle and it looks great whether you have straight hair or slightly wavy hair.

Wet and Wavy

It’s possible to create a wet hair look to last all evening when you have the right hair products for Remy hair. Start by washing with a quality sulfate free shampoo so your hair won’t look oily. Then when you apply the hair product, which is usually a styling gel, you can create the perfect amount of waviness you’re aiming for.

Double-Twisted Bun

The double-twisted bun is much simpler to put together than it looks. The first part of the hairstyle is making two separate ponytails. Then simply twist them together and pin them when you get the look you want. The more twists you do, the more it will look like a traditional bun. But with just a couple of twists, it will look more like a knot with some hair strands hanging down from the ponytails.

sulfate free shampooLong Rapunzel Braid

If you have long hair, you have to consider going with a long Rapunzel braid just because you can. The one thing to caution you about is long braided hair like this can cause breakage if you have dry hair. The best way to combat this is to use sulfate free shampoo regularly to strengthen the hair so you won’t have anything to worry about. Nothing is more impressive than a lengthy braid that extends down the majority of your back.

Pinned Back Short Hair

People with short hair tend to wear it one way since they believe they have limited styling options. This is true to an extent, but there’s always a good accessory to incorporate to add some glamour. Style it how you desire with some hair products for Remy hair and then pin part of it back with classy barrettes or other accessories to take your holiday hairstyle to the next level.

RemySoft loves the holiday season for many reasons, and one of them is to see all of the creative hairstyles people choose. If you’re feeling creative and have an event you want to impress at, contact us for some more tips and techniques to help you regardless of the texture and length of your hair.

4 Easy Tricks to Get Gorgeous Hair in a Flash

Sometimes it’s better to keep things simple when it comes to styling your hair. It’s tempting to overcomplicate styling techniques and tricks when you want to have the perfect hairstyle for whichever event you’re attending. The reality is most of the time simple tweaks to your normal quality hair care routine can make a major impact on the overall look of your style. Here are four simple tricks to speed up the process, yet still achieve gorgeous hairstyles.

Add Shiny Hair Extensions

Once you see how shiny hair extensions can enhance virtually any hairstyle, you’ll want to use them more often. While some people use them solely for additional length, most people love how voluminous they make their hair look. Do you normally wear a ponytail, but want to make it a bit fancier for an event? Adding shiny hair extensions to the base of the ponytail looks amazing and takes only a couple of minutes to do.

Work With Second-Day Hair

You can save yourself a lot of styling time by working with second- or third-day hair instead of freshly washed hair. This is especially true if you plan on curling your hair or want subtle waves to hold all night long at an event. Using leave-in conditioner will help your hair maintain its fresh look and if it gets too oily-looking, you can always use some dry shampoo to absorb the extra moisture. It’s amazing how much better styled hair looks on the second or third day after washing it.

Choose The Perfect Hair Care Products

No matter what hairstyle you’ve chosen for the day, the quality hair care products you use will determine how quickly it’s achieved and how long it will maintain its hold. A styling product like mousse is a great investment as it maintains the shape of your hair for several hours without giving it an oily look. Simply apply it to your hair before you style it and you’ll love the results.

quality hair careAccessorize

Out of all of the quality hair care products you can choose, nothing makes a larger impact more quickly than a great accessory. Depending on your personal tastes, you could incorporate a headband, ribbon, flowers, barrettes, pearls or anything else you want. Even the simplest hairstyles look more elegant and classy when you accessorize and it takes no more than a few seconds to put them in.

RemySoft believes the simple quality hair care routines usually lead to the best hairstyle results. Of course, some hairstyles may take a long time naturally depending on what you’re aiming for, but there are always some tricks to boost the appearance quickly. If you’re struggling with deciding exactly what you want your hair to look like for any event, contact us for more tips and tricks like these.

Simple and Easy Christmas Morning Hairstyles

You may have plenty of events over the holidays where you need to style your hair to perfection, but Christmas morning shouldn’t be one of them. At the very most, you should think about a style that will look decent enough to snap a few pictures, but shouldn’t take you more than a few minutes to achieve. Christmas morning should be spent with your family opening gifts and enjoying each other rather than worrying about your quality hair care routine. Here are some perfect hairstyles for the occasion.

Half-Up Knot

As long as you have hair that’s shoulder-length or a little below, the half-up knot can be easily accomplished. You can make a larger knot with longer hair or if you wear hair extensions, but that part isn’t necessary. Start by taking a piece of hair from both sides of your head and tie them together in a double knot at the back of your head. Then just secure it with a pin and you’re ready to open gifts.

hydrating shampooHigh Bun

A quick high bun is perfect for Christmas morning since it literally takes no more than a couple of minutes to do. Put your hair up into a high ponytail, section out the ponytail into two sections and twist it. Then simply wrap it up into a bun and secure it with a pin. No special quality hair care tips or tricks are needed and you’ll be ready to start your Christmas morning a few minutes after waking up.

Twisted Ponytail

Rocking a low ponytail on Christmas morning is completely acceptable. But if you want to add a little extra to it, divide your hair into three separate sections and twist them together. It could get a little tricky if you’ve never done a twisted ponytail before, but once you get the hang of it you may even think about wearing it for other informal occasions as well.

Dutch Braid Bun

It’s always recommended to use a hydrating shampoo any time you braid your hair or tie it tightly. Your hair needs to be strong and hydrated with those hairstyles so the hair strands don’t break as easily. Assuming you’re using hydrating shampoo, then the Dutch braid bun is a perfect Christmas morning hairstyle. Simply create a normal Dutch braid along the side of your head, then another one along the nape of the neck. Pull your first braid back into a bun and wrap the second braid around it. Secure it all together with a pin and you’ll be looking wonderful as you open gifts.

RemySoft loves a great hairstyle, but we also believe Christmas morning is reserved for basic and simple hairstyles, or not even styling your hair at all. It’s the perfect time to not worry about your quality hair care routine for a day and enjoy time with your loved ones. We hope you have a great holiday season and as always, contact us for any of your hair care needs

If you’re going to accessorize, think about the type of event you’re going to. Of course, there will be a lot of food there, so consider using a headband to keep your hair back. If the event is going to be held outdoors, a ribbon may be helpful to maintain your hairstyle in the wind.

Pair Your Hairstyle With A Stylish Hat

Thanksgiving is the perfect opportunity to break out your collection of stylish hats. Whether it’s a round rim hat, black, brown, large, small or simple, hats are great for the Thanksgiving season.

How to Create a Natural Look With a Wig

Everyone has a different opinion about wigs. Wigs are the most popular when you need a good costume for a party or if you want to make a statement with a brand new hairstyle. The great thing about a wig is you can experiment with a different hairstyle without making any permanent changes. Wigs make it easy to quickly alter your hairstyle, but you have to wear it properly in order to make it look as natural as possible. Here are some quality hair care tips for the next time you want to try out a new hairstyle with a wig.

quality hair careMake A Realistic Style

A wig cap is an important investment to make if you plan on wearing a wig. It’s designed to conceal your natural hair so it won’t be showing through the wig. You may also have to include a few bobby pins or clips to tame any flyaways. Depending on the wig you choose, you may have to pluck a small number of hairs or spritz on some hair products for Remy hair to create the realistic hairstyle you’re aiming for.

Get A Professional Haircut For Your Wig

You may feel like you can give your wig a haircut, but if you don’t cut your natural hair at home, avoid doing so with your wig as well. When you’ve decided on a particular hairstyle you want to achieve with your wig, take it to a professional stylist to have it cut appropriately. Maintaining a wig requires the same amount of quality hair care as natural hair, so always take it to a professional if you have any doubts.

Use Shampoo Designed For Wigs

The type of wig shampoo you use for your wig is essential in its appearance. Synthetic wigs require a different wig shampoo than natural ones, so it’s worth your time to discover the right one. Nothing can make a wig look more unrealistic than if you use a shampoo that gives it an undesirable sheen. Ask your stylist for the best wig shampoo for the wig you own.

Select A Natural Wig Color

If you want to make it easier to create a natural look with your wig, select a hair color that’s close to your natural hair color. It’s tempting to go with a bold color to make a statement with your wig, but most people experience better results when they use a similar shade to their natural hair. You won’t have to be as perfect with hiding your hair under your wig, so your job of styling is easier as a result.

At RemySoft, we always appreciate when people bring us creative ideas for their hair. Since everyone has a different opinion about wigs, it’s interesting to hear their thoughts. We have plenty of tips and ideas on how to make your wig look as natural as possible, so feel free to reach out to us at any time for inspiration.

Headband Hairstyles to Impress

Headbands seem to go in and out of style, but you’ll always see them around somewhere. Accessorizing with a headband can enhance the look of any hairstyle and it can be used for virtually any occasion. Incorporate one with mid-length hair or even if you like to wear shiny hair extensions and you’ll take your hairstyle to the next level. If you have a variety of headbands in your quality hair care collection, here are some hairstyles that will look great with one.

shiny hair extensionsTraditional Straight and Sleek

If you like to wear your hair straight down and want it to keep looking fresh all day long, then a headband will be your best friend. Washing with sulfate free shampoo and conditioner will help maintain the sleekness and the headband will control any flyaways that inevitably occur throughout the day. You also won’t have to worry about your long hair getting in the way, as the headband will ensure the hair stays flowing down your back.

Braided

No matter what type of braid you like for your hair, a headband can take the style to the next level. You may even consider investing in a braided headband to provide a perfect complement to the style. Since there are many different ways to braid your hair, trying out different headbands is a fun experiment until you find a few that work for what you want to accomplish.

Beachy Waves

An elegant, yet classic, hairstyle incorporates loose beachy waves. Your sulfate free shampoo and conditioner provides a perfect foundation for pulling off this hairstyle. Braid your hair and use a little quality hair care products to hold it in place. When you release the braid, simply run your fingers through your hair to create subtle waves and put on a nice lace headband to go with it. You’ll surely impress those around you wherever you have to go that day.

Messy Bun

The messy bun hairstyle is the go-to hairstyle for many busy people. The combination of pulling your hair up into a messy bun and adding a headband can make your one-minute hairstyle look like it took all morning to accomplish. It’s the perfect hairstyle for days when you want to look presentable, but don’t necessarily have to have perfect hair to impress.

RemySoft loves incorporating a good headband when the opportunity arises. As much as we love our quality hair care products, sometimes a simple hair accessory is what can take a hairstyle to the next level. We are always open to hearing your opinions and seeing the results of the hairstyles you’ve tried.

How to Sport a Military-Inspired Hairstyle this Veterans Day

Sporting a military-inspired hairstyle isn’t difficult to do, but it may take a little creativity. If you want to go with an authentic military hairstyle, getting a haircut likely needs to happen whether you’re a man or a woman. However, with the right hair products for Remy hair and some hair tools, you can make your hair hold exactly how you want it to. Whether you’re looking to rock a military-inspired hairstyle just for Veterans Day or if you want to honor our military for an entire week, here are a few tips to help you out.

Military Hairstyles For Long Hair

Women with long hair usually have to tie it up or style it in a way where it’s not hanging down very low. This generally means putting the hair in a bun, braid or even a ponytail. If you don’t want to cut your long hair, consider going with a hairstyle suited for women in the army. These women have some extra flexibility since one restriction is their hair can’t fall beneath the collar but they can wear hair extensions as long as they look natural. The hair products for Remy hair you have in your collection currently should be sufficient for creating a military hairstyle with your long hair.

Short-Haired Military Hairstyles

Women in the army with short hair don’t have to worry about as many restrictions or guidelines. The hair simply has to be longer than ¼” around the scalp. Sailor haircuts are common and if your hair is long enough to put it into a small ponytail, you can do so as well. Short hair can dry out quicker than long hair, so be sure to use hydrating shampoo regularly. Otherwise, you could damage your hair when you try to style it too much.

hair products for remy hairMens Military Hairstyles To Consider

Men have many different options with military-inspired hairstyles. The easiest way is to get a complete buzz cut and you won’t have to worry about styling it at all until the hair grows back out. But some haircuts can change things up a bit, like a long fade, high and tight fade, a crew cut, shaved sides and more. Most military hairstyles for men don’t require many hair products for Remy hair since the hair is so short, but still be sure to use a hydrating shampoo and leave in conditioner to protect the roots.

RemySoft appreciates our past, current and future members of the military and supports them in many ways. People always come to us asking how they can pull off a military-inspired hairstyle to honor our troops and we have plenty of options to provide them. This Veterans Day, change up your hairstyle a bit to show your support and contact us if you have any questions or need tips on how to do it.

Rocking an Asymmetrical Bob Isn’t as Hard as You Think

There are plenty of great reasons to consider getting a bob haircut. And if you’ve worn a bob for a while and are looking for a change, you don’t necessarily have to cut it shorter or let it grow out longer to make a big difference. One of the haircut trends today is getting an asymmetrical bob haircut. By angling the cut ever-so-slightly, you’ll create a seamless transition from one side to the other since the angle is so gradual. You have many different ways to rock your asymmetrical bob and here are some quality hair care tips to help you pull it off.

hair products for remy hairAdd Color To Enhance The Look

If you want to make a bold statement with your new hairstyle, then consider adding highlights or dye your hair completely. You don’t have to go with a drastic color change to make a statement and a new color is easier to embrace when it’s paired with a fresh haircut. Just remember to use hair products for Remy hair that will protect and preserve the color so you can rock the look for weeks to come.

Incorporate A Deep Side Part

You can emphasize the longer side of your hair by incorporating a deep side part. Allow some of your strands to hang in your face if you’d like or simply part it all and use hair products for Remy hair to keep it in place. Deep side parts may not look as good with a traditional bob haircut, so you have the advantage of being able to wear this hairstyle with an asymmetrical bob cut.

Pull One Side Behind Your Ears

Some hairstylists will make the angled bob haircut so subtle that it’s hardly noticeable. One of the easiest ways to draw attention to the difference in length is to tuck one side behind your ears. It’s amazing how such a simple trick makes a significant difference in the appearance of a hairstyle, and the best part about it is you don’t have to invest in a lot of quality hair care products to achieve it.

Bangs Make A Huge Difference

Most people have a love-hate relationship with bangs. Whether you’ve been able to pull off bangs successfully in the past or not, it’s worth another try if you get an asymmetrical bob haircut. The combination of the angled cut with the straight bangs frames the face in ways that are hard to describe. It may look a little untraditional, but you could also start a new trend at the same time.

RemySoft is here to answer all of your quality hair care questions so you can rock the look you envision. Sometimes changing to a sulfate free shampoo or using a leave-in conditioner is what you need, while other times getting a whole new haircut may be required to suit your desires.

Short, Curly Hairstyles You Don’t Want to Miss

People with short and curly hair either love it or hate it. No matter how much you try to straighten your hair, there will always be some curl to it, so sometimes it’s best to just embrace your locks and make the most of them. You may think your hairstyle options are limited, but with the right hair products for Remy hair and a little inspiration, you can create hairstyles that are suitable for the red carpet. Here are a few of our favorite short and curly hairstyles for you to try.

The Blunt Bob

The blunt bob is a popular hairstyle for people with straight hair, but it doesn’t mean curly-haired people can’t pull it off too. The ideal length for this hairstyle is above the shoulders, right around the chin. And if you want to take it to the next level, grow out some bangs to go with it. Framing your face is the most challenging part of this hairstyle, but there are plenty of hair products for Remy hair to help you get every strand in the perfect position.

Curls With Highlights

There may not be a more unique hairstyle for short curly-haired people than having curls with highlights. If you have dark brown hair, consider going with blonde or caramel highlights. If you have lighter-colored hair, you could opt for darker highlights. The idea behind this hairstyle is to keep your natural hair color intact and have your hairstylist highlight just the right amount of curls to add some style. 

Chopped and Feathered

The chopped and feathered hairstyle is great if you want to wear your curls a little looser than normal. Start with using hydrating shampoo and leave-in conditioner so your hair is simple to work with. The perfect length for this hairstyle is between the chin and the shoulders. You can even incorporate some bangs to help frame your face and highlight your best features.

leave-in conditionerTightly Coiled Rings

Maybe one of the most traditional hairstyles for people with short and curly hair is coiling the curls as tightly as possible. Before doing this, be sure to use hydrating shampoo for several weeks beforehand to ensure you don’t damage your hair when styling it. Your hair can be as long or as short as you’d like for this hairstyle, with the main idea being coiling the strands as tightly as possible.

At RemySoft, we believe creativity is an important element of every hairstyle. Just because you have curly hair that may not be the easiest to work with doesn’t mean you are limited to just one or two hairstyles. Sometimes it’s simply a matter of changing your hair products for Remy hair, while other times you may need to use an alternate styling technique. Regardless, feel free to contact us at any time when you need some inspiration.

How to Dodge Your Next Bad Haircut

A bad haircut impacts people in different ways. You may be frustrated for the entire time until your hair grows back or you could simply make the most of it and choose to accept it. However, depending on the time of year and what events you may have upcoming, you sometimes can’t afford to have a bad haircut. You work hard establishing a quality hair care routine to always have great-looking hair, so having your efforts ruined at the salon isn’t ideal. Here are some basic tips to help ensure you won’t leave the salon with a bad haircut again.

quality hair careView Recommendations For Hairstylists

It’s always a good idea to look up reviews and recommendations for hairstylists before making an appointment. Especially look at the stylist’s specialties if you’re wanting a specific haircut. When you find one that looks good on paper, feel free to give them a call as well and explain exactly what you want to accomplish with your hair. They may provide you with recommendations to do beforehand to ensure they can achieve your vision, such as coming in with dry hair, slightly damp hair, washed hair or second-day hair.

Come In With Ideas and Visuals

If you make your stylist guess at what type of haircut you want, then there’s a good chance it’s not going to live up to your expectations. Have a clear idea of what you want and provide your stylist with a visual of the type of haircut you want. Sometimes what you say could be interpreted differently than what you actually mean, so having a visual ensures you and your stylist are on the same page and can discuss different ideas at that time.

Communicate Clearly With Your Stylist

There’s never any harm in providing feedback to your stylist, even when they are in the middle of giving you a haircut. In fact, most stylists appreciate this type of feedback since their ultimate goal is achieving the hairstyle you want. As long as you’re polite and honest with them, speak up and ask if there’s anything they can do to change it. Most of the time they will be more than happy to fix it without charging you anything extra.

Ask For Styling Tips For Your New Cut

Depending on the haircut you get, you may have to change up your quality hair care routine to maintain your great new look. Ask your stylist for some tips on how to keep your hair looking fresh for as long as possible. One tip you’ll probably receive is investing in sulfate free shampoo if you don’t already have some. Take the tips you receive seriously and you’ll enjoy great-looking hair for much longer than normal.

At RemySoft, we believe the best haircuts can be maximized when you follow a great quality hair care routine. Many stylists say dry hair is difficult to work with since it’s brittle and doesn’t style well. Sometimes it’s as simple as switching your shampoo to a sulfate free shampoo, but feel free to reach out to us at any time if you have any concerns or questions specifically about your hair.
