More Women's Hairstyle Trends for Spring and Summer This 2008

celebrity hairstyle trends imageIf you're ready for a Spring makeover in 2008, be prepared for some celebrity-inspired styles and unique updos to tame those tresses. Fashion Week put the spotlight on the some great looks for the season, with super-long lengths and pixie-style bobs leading the runway. No matter how long or short your hair may be after winter, you can look forward to layers, razor cut bobs, and blunt bangs to freshen up for the season. Here are the top women's hairstyle trends for Spring 2008:

Long and Curly
If you've been considering a perm these past few seasons, Spring 2008 is to jump in and go for it. Supermodels at the Calvin Klein presentation sported some curly ringlets in golden blonde and brunette colors. Medium-sized, tight curls are one of the leading looks of the season, and the extra-long length makes it super versatile.

Blunt Bangs
Blunt bangs are especially flattering for round and square face shapes, and can help balance out high cheekbones. Go for blunt bangs cut just over the eyebrow level for a modern, sophisticated look. These can easily be swept to the side if you decide to change up the style at a moment's notice.

Sculpted Bob
The bob continues to be a top trend this season, but the year calls for a soft and romantic version instead of the super-blunt cuts of Fall 2007. Soften up the look with large curlers or a curling iron, and go for a side part that covers the forehead.

Twisted Updos
The season's updo trends center around super-sculpted buns and twists; go for a sophisticated French twist by piling hair high up on the head and creating a 'knot'. The look was carried off perfectly by Gwen Stefani for the L.A.M.B. presentation at Fashion Week, and it's a great choice for warmer days.

Half Ponytails
Go for a teased side ponytail for a sophisticated and romantic look for Spring. It's the season for romance and the ponytail continues to be a super-feminine option for medium and longer lengths. Make it sleek and sophisticated with a flat iron, or where it loose with a natural wave.

Razor Cut Bob
The razor cut bob is the opposite of the sculpted version, and continues to be a top trend this year, except in a longer length. Instead of ending at the chin, the longest layer can now drop to the shoulders. Extreme side parts and zig-zag effects are great ways to pull of this look.

Finish off updos or dress up a simple bob with a few glittery hair picks and beaded accessories for a romantic touch; Spring 2008 trends are flirty, playful, and youthful. Are you ready for your spring hair makeover?

Fashion Tips on Dressing for a Job Interview

hot clothes to wear on job interviewYour interview attire is more important than you think so let your talent and personality get you noticed, not your wild tie or brightly colored socks. The right clothes give you an opportunity to make the right impression. I have outlined 4 important tips on dressing for a job interview.

On the day of our interview, before you even begin to get dressed, there is one thing you should avoid. You may be tempted to follow your normal routine of splashing your favorite cologne or aftershave on after you hop out of the shower. Don’t do it for your interview, you don’t want to overwhelm the interviewer. They may not like your fragrance as much as you do.

What to Wear. . .
To a more formal interview: It helps to know how formal the company you will be interviewing with is and if wearing a suit is necessary. I hate to state the obvious, but it is important to go in a suit and tie to any company that's part of a more formal industry, such as banking, law or brokerage. Choose a basic black, dark gray or navy suit. Also opt for black leather lace-up shoes and a black belt. Blue shirts are a great choice since they compliment most skin tones and easily coordinate with most suit colors. Choose a flattering tie that goes well with both the suit and shirt you have chosen.

To a less formal interview: Some less formal industries such as software development and technology companies will not require a suit. However, it's better to wear something a little nicer than what everyone in the office is wearing. So choose something dressy but casual. Such ensembles might include pressed khakis or trousers, a well pressed button-down shirt, and of course some sort of nice looking dress shoe and matching belt. You may even want to thrown on a blazer. Navy blazers look great with khaki pants.

Shoes and Belts
Pay attention to details such as matching your belt to the color of your shoes. Choose black shoes if your outfit consists of dark gray, navy, brown or black. Opt for dark brown shoes if you'll be wearing tans or medium toned colors. I hate to sound like your mother, but polish or clean your shoes before your interview. Scuff marks on your shoes make you look tattered, and we can't have that.

Keep interview accessories minimal and professional. Use some sort of bound portfolio to carry your resume, references or other papers. Men should limit jewelry to a wristwatch and cufflinks if you wear them. Earrings, necklaces, nose rings, and such are not interview material (for the man who wants the job anyway). Whatever the type of industry, men should wear jewelry sparingly.

Fashion Hair Styling Secrets Tips

fashion hairstyle tips secretSHORT HAIR TIP
Use a toothbrush to tease a short strand. The tiny bristles will give you more control, and give your hair more lift.

1.Blow-dry bangs first, since they are first to dry. Use a round toothbrush.
2. Use fingers to separate hair until almost dry.
3.Divide hair into sections, and dry sections first.

HINT: Always brush and blow dry in same direction.

1. Comb bangs straight down across your forehead.
2. Separate into three sections.
3. Clip back the two side sections.
4. Grasp the middle section between the fingers, and looking straight ahead cut off about 1/4 inches.
5. Unclip side sections and repeat.

Keep your hair from losing its style overnight by always sleeping on a satin pillow. Carry one with you when you travel.

Tips on How to Look Slimmer

slim waist imageEveryone wants to have that slim, beautiful body, but unfortunately it doesn’t always happen that way. Weather we don’t have time for the gym, or we just basically get lazy, sometimes fitness isn’t always at the top of our list (even if we think about it all the time!). So here are some secrets to not being slimmer, but at least looking slimmer!

Wear Monochromatic Colors
Staying away from patterns and an array of different colors is a good idea because you don’t draw so much attention to your problem areas. So try wearing no more than two colors at a time.

Stay Away From Baggy Clothes
Baggy clothes don’t hide your imperfections, they make them stand out! The best thing you can do is wear clothes that fit you. Not ones that are baggy, but not ones that are too tight either.

Wear Accessories
Again, accessories draw attention from any problem areas. So try stacking up some bangles on your arms, a long pair of necklaces , or just a sparkling brooch.

Wear a Lower Waistline
Choose pants that have lower waistlines. Make sure they have a flat front and no pleats, as that will make you look bigger. The lower waistline helps elongate your legs. Make sure the pants are long enough and they don’t cut off at the ankle.

Belt Mania
Wearing belts can give you longer legs, if you know how to wear them. Position it lower on your hips.

You Can Wear Skinny Jeans as Well as Bellbottoms
You can actually still wear skinny jeans as long as you pair them with a voluminous top or a long blazer. Make sure to add some sexy hells. Bellbottoms are best worn with a fitted top.
