Saoirse Ronan’s Wispy, Choppy Bangs

Bangs are often hit-or-miss when it comes to hairstyles, but Saoirse Ronan knocked them out of the park at the Oscars. Her wispy front bangs had a bit of choppiness to them that worked perfectly with her outfit and jewelry combination.

Platinum Pixie Cut On Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron never fails to impress with her hairstyles. There’s nothing particularly fancy about her platinum pixie cut, but the side-swept deep part to go with it adds a touch of uniqueness. What many viewers of the Oscars may not have noticed are the shiny hair extensions on either side of her head and the black band that brought the look together in the back. The subtle creativeness is something Charlize Theron fans have come to expect over the years, and she delivered again at this event. Photo: Jordan Strauss/Invision/AP/Shutterstock

Valentine’s Day is always a day where you want to go above and beyond to show your love for your significant other. Selecting the perfect hairstyle is typically the toughest decision, so we’ve helped you out with some inspiring styles that may not force you to alter your quality hair care routine significantly.

Low Bun

It’s amazing how a hairstyle as simple as a low bun can be made to be more glamorous with a few tweaks.

If you need a hairstyle that will look great in the morning and last all day through your Valentine’s Day evening, then look no further than this one.

Make your curls as big and loose as you can and apply quality hair care products to maximize the hold for the best results.

For people with long hair past the shoulders, beachy waves can be a great attribute of your hairstyle. And even if you don’t have long locks, you can add shiny hair extensions and pull off the look. Simply curl your hair and then loosen the curls into the waves you desire. It’s an effortless look that also provides a certain amount of glamour that will be noticeable by anyone.

Silky, Shiny and Smooth Side Part

A simple and classy hairstyle for any Valentine’s Day date is the silky, shiny and smooth side part. The key to this hairstyle isn’t as much in the quality hair care routine, but rather, the hair products you use. Wash with sulfate free shampoo and apply a leave-in conditioner to provide a natural shine. Then simply part your hair to one side, brush it gently to make it as smooth as possible and apply your favorite products to maximize the shine.

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

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.

What You Need to Know About Halo Hair Extensions

We all know hair extensions can make a good hairstyle look even better. Most of the time when people think of hair extensions, they think of the popular clip-in wefts that are easy to install and remove. Halo extensions are a little different, as they include a clear wire to secure on your head and they wrap around the head. They are usually applied in a matter of minutes and give you instant volume. But before you rush out to grab some halo hair extensions, we’ve got you covered with everything you need to know to ensure they’re right for you.

quality hair carePerfect For People With Long Hair Already

The one downfall of halo hair extensions is they are suitable mainly for people who already have long hair. No matter how detailed your quality hair care routine is, you’ll likely struggle to get the halo extensions to blend into your hair if it’s short. These are ideal for people with mid-length to long hair since they are very easy to blend in with your natural hair and add the perfect amount of volume.

They Are Easy to Apply and Maintain Their Hold

Halo hair extensions use a wire that rests on your head, but also has a couple of clips for additional security. Once you use halo extensions a couple of times, it’s not out of the question for you to be able to apply them in less than a minute. Simply brush your hair like normal, section it off at the crown and apply the halo where you parted it. It should feel similar to a headband that sits right above the ears. At this point, you can clip them in for added security, incorporate your favorite hair products for Remy hair and brush it out to create your desired hairstyle for the day.

Halo Extensions Are Low Maintenance

Just like traditional hair extensions, halo extensions are mostly low maintenance. The main difference you have to worry about is not snagging or cutting the nylon wire when you’re washing them or applying them. Otherwise, simply wash them periodically without overwashing them, use the appropriate hair products for Remy hair and store them in a cool, dry and dark place to extend the life of them.

RemySoft loves it when people get creative with their hair. Halo hair extensions are simple and are mainly designed for adding volume, which can take your hairstyle to the next level. Add in some of the best hair products for Remy hair and you’ll be well on your way to creating voluminous hairstyles for even the most elegant occasions. To learn more about halo hair extensions or to get tips and advice on hairstyles to use with them, feel free to contact us at any time.

Hair Tricks for Even the Laziest of Mornings

Everyone deserves to have a lazy morning every once in a while. However, many times we have our laziest mornings on days when we still have to look presentable. Having a collection of quality hair care products to help you pull off various hairstyles will have you prepared for any situation. Whether you’re short on time, like to plan ahead or simply wake up not feeling like styling your hair, here are some tricks to help you get out the door looking presentable.

Pre-Curl Your Extensions

When you know you’ll be short on time the next morning, consider pre-curling your shiny hair extensions. Once you curl them exactly how you want them to be, hang them in their original carrier and you’ll wake up the next morning to perfectly styled hair. The great thing about shiny hair extensions is they will often hold their curls or waves for a few days, so spending a few minutes curling them could give you a couple of days worth of great-looking hairstyles.

quality hair careTry A Messy Bun

Whether you’re a fan of the high bun or the low bun, the messy bun should always be an option when you’re short on time. A messy half-up hairstyle is quick and easy to do if you like a high bun. A low bun looks great when you leave some face-framing strands down the sides of your face. These styles look best on second- or third-day hair after using your great sulfate free shampoo. Giving the natural oils a chance to come out will provide some natural texture and help the hair stay in place better.

Double Your Ponytail

Have you ever wondered how some people have such voluminous ponytails? Chances are they didn’t do anything special except for creating two ponytails and combine them. You may need to incorporate shiny hair extensions if you don’t have enough hair to pull it off, though. It only takes a few extra seconds to make a second ponytail, but the results make it look like you spent hours on your hair.

Apply Dry Shampoo Before Bed

We always recommend using a great sulfate free shampoo when it’s time to wash your hair. However, life sometimes gets in the way and time becomes short. On those occasions, dry shampoo can save a significant amount of time. Simply apply some on your hair before you go to bed and let it go to work absorbing the excess oils while you’re sleeping. Then you’ll wake up with hair that acts like it was washed the night before.

RemySoft is a big believer in having plenty of lazy day hairstyles in your collection. It’s hard to maintain a strict quality hair care routine every day with the busy lives we have, but your hairstyles don’t have to suffer because of it. For more tips and tricks like these, and to learn about what products can enhance your hair, contact us at any time to speak with a hair expert.

Change Up Your Part Using Hair Extensions

Sometimes a fresh new hairstyle can put a little extra pep in your step and give you some added confidence throughout the day. And the good news is you don’t necessarily have to alter your hair completely to achieve it. With some shiny hair extensions and changing up your part a little bit, you can make a significant alteration to your appearance without making a drastic change to your quality hair care routine. Here are some simple ways to change up your part while using shiny hair extensions.

Deep Side Part

The deep side part is an envied hairstyle because it looks great on just about everyone. If you don’t have long enough hair or would like to add some volume to the part, then shiny hair extensions are your answer. Simply clip in the hair extensions as you normally would, but be sure to create the side part prior to adding in the last couple of wefts. This will increase the volume and make your deep side part much more defined. Pair your deep side part with glamorous accessories and you’ll be ready for any occasion.

shiny hair extensionsMiddle Part

The middle part is the most common type of part women use. It’s a versatile and nearly universal part since it looks great on most face shapes, various hair textures and lengths. When adding in your shiny hair extensions, clip them in close to the roots after creating the middle part. The idea is to blend them in with your natural hair as closely as possible. Include some of your favorite hair products for Remy hair and you’ll be set to go for the day.

Flipped Over Part

The flipped over part is a great casual hairstyle you can create with shiny hair extensions. Achieving the flipped over part is similar to the deep side part, with the main difference being clipping the extensions a little lower on the head. Then when you flip the hair over, the wefts won’t be shown and you’ll have a voluminous hairstyle everyone will envy. If you have the quality hair care products to do it, consider incorporating some waves for an even more effortless and relaxed look.

At RemySoft, we love the versatility offered by shiny hair extensions. We talk to many people who are surprised to learn about the different ways they can use extensions other than just adding length and volume. They are perfect for changing up your hairstyle ever so slightly without having to make a permanent change. If you’re looking for more inspiration by using hair extensions, don’t hesitate to contact us at any time for tips and advice.

5 Ways to Wear Your Hair with a Head Wrap or Hair Scarf

Head wraps and hair scarves aren’t new accessories by any means, but they are one of the latest trends people are turning to when they aren’t sure what to do with their hair. It doesn’t matter what length your hair is, what time of year it is or even if you’re having a bad hair day. Head wraps and hair scarves can come to the rescue and give you plenty of options to help out your quality hair care routine. Here are five ways you can wear them in your hair.

Pigtails

If you’re in a playful mood, going with pigtails is a great hairstyle to choose. Since there are many different colors, styles and patterns to choose from with head wraps and hair scarves, you can pick the one that fits your mood any given day. Sometimes you just have to relax and have fun with your hair and pigtails is the perfect way to do it.

Lengthy and Textured

Whether you have naturally long hair or like to wear shiny hair extensions often, adding in a head wrap or hair scarf can add another element to your hairstyle. Simply leave your hair down and wrap the scarf around the top of your head and tie it at the back of your neck. It’s a great way to change up your routine hairstyle and takes a matter of seconds to accomplish.

Braids

You can braid your hair differently every day of the week if you wanted to. Take it up a notch and incorporate a hair scarf to add even more creativity.

Gym Hairstyles

Head wraps have always been commonly seen in the gym to help keep hair out of your face as you’re working out. It’s simple and stylish to put your hair back in a ponytail and put on a head wrap, and your hair may still look great even after the workout. Just apply some dry shampoo or leave in conditioner afterward and you’ll be ready to continue with your day.

quality hair careTop Knot

The top knot is the ultimate hairstyle to go to when you’re in a rush or simply don’t feel like spending much time on your hair. You can spruce up this hairstyle by incorporating a hair scarf around the bottom of the bun. It will look like you put some thought into your hairstyle and can hide any blemishes if you happen to be having a bad hair day.

At RemySoft, we encourage people to be as creative as they are comfortable with. Whether it’s using shiny hair extensions occasionally, head wraps, hair scarves or anything else, sometimes a different accessory is what you need to change things up a bit.
