Rod Stewart / Sexy Rock Star Hair Style

Drawing inspiration from the hair style of our favorite stars and celebrities has become a national past time. One such star whose hair style has been emulated by men around the globe is world class rock star.
Rod Stewart. His tousled spiky bleached blonde style set the trend for men's hair styles throughout the 80’s and is just as popular today. Rod’s sexy spiky hair color/style and rock star persona is irresistible to girls attracted to the wild side and quite the catch for those that go for the sensitive, creative types.

TO GET THE LOOK: If you’re looking for a sexy rocker hair style take a styling lesson from Rod Stewart. With years of practice Rod knows just what it takes to standout from the crowd. His rock solid style is loaded with “sex appeal” and guarantied to stop the ladies dead in their tracks. If you’re up for a rock star hair style, let’s take it one step at a time; starting with a style cut and shaping.

LET’S SHAPE IT: To get the look, start with a semi-spiky contoured silhouette with tapered hair stylishly over the ears and collar with a few “love locks” across the forehead to fill in the blank spots. With a few adjustments (tweaks) as it grows your stylist can easily find the ideal length and shape for your style.

LET’S STYLE IT: To jump start the style a dab of Hair Flex shaping gel or Gel Mousse adds style support and thickens to thin hair. Just run either through damp hair and comb in place to dry au natural, or give it a quick once over with a blow dryer and styling brush for a full tousled look. To turn on the sexy appeal, when dry, add the spiky or textured look with Hair Flex Special Effects Styling Spray or finger comb a dab of gel-mousse through the top and you’ve got the look. 

NOW LET’S COLOR IT: Entertainer’s and actors change their hair color often for the many roles they play so coloring it is no big deal. If you have light or medium brown hair that's gray around the edge like Rod’s a golden blond “high-lift tint” will put the gray hair stylishly under cover. After, a few strands are bleached and highlighted with a foil weaving or cap technique for a contrasting au natural sun kissed effect. 

The blond color will also make large facial features appear smaller and give thin and thinning hair an overall thicker look and style support. To keep it up the new growth is re-colored every six-eight weeks. This bit of hair color magic requires a trip to a “salon hair colorist” and will set you back a few extra bucks but is well worth the time and expense for a sexy-stylish look and all the attention you’ll get.

This road tested rock star style is loaded with sex appeal and comes with all the bell and whistles to stop women dead in their tracks. The tousled spiky contoured shape with a few love locks dancing across your forehead covers the hair line and fills in the blank spots. Your sun kissed color adds a youthful look and texture tousled style lets everyone know you’re a stylish dude. So be prepared to take email addresses and cell phone numbers when you show up with Rod Stewart’s sexy rock star style.

David Bowie / Star Hair Style

The world of popular culture is often guilty of overusing the word ‘icon’ - but when it comes to David Bowie, no other word seems fitting. Performer, musician, artist, fashion maverick and cultural spearhead, Bowie was as revolutionary as they came. 

Bowie free spirit and daring wardrobe was integral to his ‘outsider’ persona, and Bowie’s hair was no exception. David Bowie’s hairstyles changed almost as much as his alter egos. Always a trend setter here are two of his classic short styles that have stood the test of time.

Perhaps one of Bowie’s most gentle-looking hairstyles, this slicked back full and parted ‘do is oh-so-soft and works well with the natural subtle wave of his hair. It also accentuates the star’s infamous high cheekbones and strong jaw line, exposing the delicate features of his face. 

If you're looking for a new trendy hair style take a styling lesson from David Bowie. To get the look, hair is cut short and close through the sides with tapered neckline and side part while the crown is cut and shaped to stand up for a full look. For a spiky textured effect, towel or blow dry and apply styling spray wax or firm hold styling gel to dry hair. For a maximum effect add hair color and makeup for David Bowie's rock star look.

Famous Hairlines / Hair Restoration

Some Hairlines Are Headlines
Celebrity hairline's has become a hot topic in recent years.

When Sir Elton John had his hairline restored the tabloids read; “Tonsorial Wizard Grows Hair on Rocket Man Pin Ball”. Elton is perhaps the most famous hair restoration / transplant recipients. He underwent a series of replacement procedures after becoming fed-up with years of wearing toupees and wigs. 

Hollywood heartthrob Mel Gibson had his thinning and receding hairline restored. Today he is the proud owner of a full head of hair and natural looking hairline. While Mel has not publicly admitted to having had a hair replacement procedure and is not the first celebrity to undergo this hush-hush procedure. Kevin Costner known for his movie star good looks has always had a thin head of hair. Not liking the way his thinning crown looked on film and spending thousands of dollars having it “digitally added” in the editing room Kevin is said to have been considering a hair restoration procedure. 

Jokes about hair loss are as old as dirt, but not as old as rocks. Two famous comedians, Tom Arnold and Dennis Miller are the first to tell you they’ve had this done and that it was a enjoyable “hair razing experience”. Both look much younger with thicker hair and a natural looking hairline.

Known for their handsome boyish good looks Mathew McConaughey showed early signs of hair loss. He spent thousands of dollars on hair loss treatments to slow the process. Mathew finally settle for the real deal a "hair replacement procedure” and his hairline looks totally natural even up close.

Movie Stars John Travolta and John Cleese filled in there fading hairline for a youthful looking hair style and you can also. Recent medical breakthroughs and artistic procedures and lower costs has made what was once an expensive procedure affordable for anyone. 

Hair Restoration is not just reserved for film and television stars. Having had a hair restoration procedure myself I can tell you first hand it was painless and well worth the expense. Hair restoration is a simple outpatient procedure that involves donor hair follicles taken from the back and side of the head, where hair is thickest and resistant to loss. These follicles are inserted seamlessly into the thinning spots for a totally natural looking hairline even up close. And best of all its permanent. 

With today’s modern hair restoration technology, it's now possible to do something about both male and female hair loss. My procedure was done here in Beverly Hills, California by the world's foremost hair restoration specialist, Dr. Michael Elliott. To learn more about his artistic procedure visit Dr. Elliott's web site and tell him I recommended you.

Evolution of the Hair Brush

As long as people have had hair there has been a need to tame tangles and help arrange and style it. For these reasons hair brushes have been around for thousands of years, but changed dramatically in the mid 20th century with the introduction of space age plastic, flexible rubber, synthetic fibers and ionic ceramic composites. 

What started out as a very basic grooming implement has morphed into a highly specialized grooming and styling tool to complement the use of hand held blow dryers and modern styling effects.

The Magic Flex Hair Styling Brush is the latest example of the new hair brush technology at its best. The Magic Flex combines three of the most popular styling brushes in one: Paddle Brush, Round Brush, Shaping Brush with a built-in-styling comb.

The Magic Flex three-in-one Styling Brush is made of a durable heat resistant flexible material that's easy on the hair and scalp. Its unique multi-functional design makes it ideal for both men and women and all styling effects. Its adjustable handle allows it to fold "open and closed" and spring back to its original flat Paddle Brush shape like magic. 

If you use a blow dryer to style your hair as I do you'll love the versatility of the Magic Flex. The air flow net protects hair from direct heat and holds and drys hair in place. What's more, the Magic Flex Brush is the only brush with a built-in-styling comb and includes a unique   "retainer clip" designed to hold it "open" for use as a Round Brush  and "closed" when not in use, making it ideal for travel.

The multi-function Magic Flex Brush is designed for all hair types and lengths, both wet and dry and makes blow dry styling safe, quick and easy. Just look at all you can do with your Magic Flex hair brush:

One hair styling brush does it all !
Lift and shape for volume, remove tangles from wet and dry hair with ease, roll hair over or turn it under, straighten and relax unruly waves, scrunch to encourage curl and volume, crimp and wave, finish with its built-in-styling comb. This is why the Magic Flex is the
"world's most versatile hair brush" and a Hollywood hair styling beauty secret.
