Rod Stewart / Star Hair Style

Drawing inspiration from the hair style trends 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 blond style set the trend for man's hair styles throughout the 80’s and is just as popular today. Rod’s spiky hair 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 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 you can easily find the ideal length and shape for your style.

LET’S STYLE IT: To jump start the style a dab of shaping gel or mousse adds style support and thickens 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 for a full tousled look. To add the spiky look and turn on the sexy appeal, when dry, finger comb a dab of foaming pomade or 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 dying it is no big deal. If you have light or medium brown hair and gray around the edge like Rod’s a golden blond “high-lift tint” will put the gray stylishly under cover. After, a few strands are bleached and highlighted with a foil weaving 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. To keep it up the new growth is re-colored with 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 n roll style is loaded with sex appeal and comes with bell and whistles to stop women dead in their tracks. The tousled spiky contoured silhouette with a few love locks across the forehead covers the hair line and fills in the blank spots. The au natural sun kissed hair color puts the gray hair under cover and 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 rock-sexy style.

Star Hair Style / Taylor Swift

Drawing inspiration from the hair style trends of our favorite stars and celebrities has become a national pass time. One such star is the talented country pop singer and recent "entertainer of the year" Taylor Swift. With her fresh natural beauty, ultra feminine hair style and glam hair color, it’s no surprise her hair style is emulated by young women around the globe.

TO GET THE LOOK: If you’re looking for the “ultra feminine” hair style take a styling lesson from Taylor Swift and watch heads turn when you show up looking drop dead gorgeous. For those that love the look and feel of long hair and want to give it a ultra feminine look, let’s take it one step at a time; starting with a custom style cut and shaping. 

LET’S SHAPE IT: To get the look, start with a long face framing silhouette, layered for volume with long side swept peek-a-boo bangs. This ultra feminine and truly classic hairstyle is best suited for rectangle, heart and oval face shape… especially those with angular features. With a few adjustments (trims) as it grows you can easily find the ideal length and shape for your look. 

LET’S STYLE IT:  To put the style in motion, start with a dab of your favorite styling mousse or spray gel curl set. Comb either through damp hair to dry in place au natural or toss your hair over and give it a quick blow dry for volume. A few turns with a ½ inch styling iron is all it takes. Curling your hair in spiral curls is easy once you get the hang of it. Start with small sections at a time and slide the strands through your curling iron so that the end is at the bottom of the curling wand. Then wind the strand upward to ear level and hold it with moderate tension, slowly turn and release the curl. Finger comb a dab of hair polish through the curls and you’ve got the look. For a feminine dressy look tie it back over the shoulder and your good to go.

LET’S ADD MAKEUP AND ACCESSORIES: What’s a feminine star hair style without makeup and accessories? Taylor Swift knows just how good makeup can make you look and feel. Her alluring smoky eyes, winged black eyeliner, rosy cheeks and pale pink lipstick push the feminine bar to the max. Taylor knows how to dress of any occasion and is quite the trend setter. For a casual feminine look Taylor loves wearing hats and “sundresses” and has recently designed a line of stylish Taylor Swift sundresses available at Wal-Mart. 

NOW, LET’S COLOR IT:  Taylor’s hair color is no ordinary drug store hair color job. For a natural multi-tonal look Taylor’s natural brown hair is first lightened with high lift bleach and colored after with three shades of blond. Light golden brown in nape area, dark blond in crown area and medium/light blond around the hairline with a foil weaving technique. To get this au natural “Blond on Blond” sun kissed look will require a visit with a creative salon hair colorist and will cost a few extra dollars but is well worth the extra time and expense.

Taylor Swifts ultra-feminine style with face framing curly love locks and side swept peek-a-boo bangs says Ole'. A quick blow dry and a once over with a curling wand and like magic you're ready for any occasion. The au natural “blond on blond” hair color is a work of art and lets everyone know this is no home color job. You’re sure to get rave review and your girl friends will be green with envy when they see the guy’s making a fuss over you with Taylor Swift ultra-feminine hair style.
