Hair Tips for Humid Weather

Now that summer is right around the corner – in 30 days, to be exact – now is the time to get your hair in check in time for the hot, humid months ahead. If you have frizzy hair, or hair that goes from fabulous to disaster when exposed to heat and humidity, this article was made for you.

The humid weather can be detrimental to a beautiful hair style, no matter how much hair spray you might use. The time is now to prepare yourself and learn what to do to avoid hair mishaps and enjoy your summer while out and about. Lionesse has some brilliant tips to help get you through the humidity, looking your absolute best while you’re out having fun.

Woman applying hair products.

Use Products
Serums can help to deter the humidity from wreaking havoc on your styled hair, and lock the moisture out from attacking the follicles. Opt for a serum that adds shine and boosts protection against humidity. Anti-humidity hairspray, when used in conjunction with a good serum, is one of your best defenses against the heat. Using both together provides a barrier of protection. If you have curls, you could use an anti-humidity mousse along with an anti-humidity serum and hair spray for the ultimate in protection.

Woman touching her hair.

Don’t Touch Your Hair
Once your style is all finished, hair sprayed, and set, you won’t want to touch your hair and mess it around. This can cause friction and static which can lead to humidity. You can also disturb the style and cause the product to wear off quickly if you are playing around with your hair. For the longest lasting style possible, don’t touch your hair once it’s done.

Opt for Buns
On those days where you just don’t have the time or willpower to create a straightened style or work with a bunch of products, opt for a messy bun, cotton candy bun, or even a regular bun on top of your head to keep the hair pulled away from the face and shoulders, alleviate the worry of humidity attacking, and also, give yourself a sleek, classy style. Be sure to spray the hair on the head and underneath with some good anti-humidity hairspray to lock potential flyaways and frizzies in place.

Woman getting a hair treatment at the salon.

Deep Condition
Deep conditioning your hair might seem like it’s counterproductive, but on the contrary – it actually helps to fight the effects of frizz. When the hair has enough moisture, it’s not going to want to extract extraneous moisture from the air around you. Apply a deep conditioning pack in the shower twice per week from halfway down the hair strands and work through to the ends. Rinse thoroughly and follow up with an anti-frizz serum to combed, towel dried hair for maximum protection against the humidity.

Woman with a layered haircut.

Add Some Angles and Layers
Adding layers and angles to your hair style will help you to maintain your sleek, straight hair if that is the style you choose to go for. Your style will be able to look more polished and precise, and depending upon how many layers of, well, layers you have, you will be able to maintain the sleek look you love a lot easier than you would if you had hair that was all one length. Opt for this addition this summer to your style for the look of it, as it’s super cute and stylish, and the ease of style ability as well.

Step 1: Begin with about 1-2” sections of hair, and begin curling with your flat iron. Simply put the piece of hair into the flat iron near the root, clamp it on, twist the flat iron 180 degrees, and wrap the remaining hair around the flat iron, twisting it around the iron. Pull the flat iron down gently, and release at the bottom. Take the curled hair, and roll it up in a roll and pin to the head. Repeat on the remaining hair. Make sure to pin the curls in the same uniform direction.

Step 2: When all the curls have been completed and cooled completely, unpin all of the hair and run the fingers through the hair to loosen the curl.

Step 3: Gather the hair on the front side of the head, and twist backwards. From there, push the twist forward a little bit and secure to the head with bobby pins. Complete on the other side of the hair.

Step 4: Brush through the curls gently with the boar bristle brush, and spray the hair to finish.

That’s it! That’s all there is to it! The only thing you really need to do is be patient throughout the style, but overall, it’s a very easy style to achieve that anyone can complete. I hope you’ve enjoyed the 1940′s curls look and have found it to be easy and beautiful, and liked it as much as I have.

Pin Curls with a Flat Iron

This week, Lionesse is focusing it’s attention on reveling in the beauty of the 1940’s style. Today, we’ve got guest blogger Sarah McCormick of All Things Beauty here with us to give you a rundown on how you can create your very own pin curls using a flat iron.

Traditional pin curls are quite time consuming and require patience, a night’s sleep, and extra work. Here, Sarah will show you how you can get the same look in a fraction of the time with a little patience and persistence.

Without further ado, we would like to hand the post over to Sarah, so that she can get you started on developing your pin curl look in no time.

Lionesse-Pin-Curl-Flat-Iron5

Hi everyone!

It’s great to be back here at Lionesse again. Today, I am super excited to show you all how you can create your very own authentic pin curl look in a fraction of the time normal pin curls would normally take. Typical pin curls require pinning all of the hair up on top of the head, wrapping the head with a scarf or bandana of some sort, and sleeping on the pins all night. Not only is this uncomfortable, but it’s exceptionally time consuming to boot. In this tutorial, I will show you how you can get the same look in only minutes rather than hours.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Flat iron
  • Hair ties or hair clips big enough to hold large sections of hair
  • Hair spray
  • Boar bristle brush

Once you’ve gathered up everything you need, here’s how you get the look. You should be able to dedicate 30-50 minutes, depending on your hair’s length, to get the look.

Pin Curl Flat Iron 1

Step 1: Start with straightened or flat hair.

Step 2: You are going to section the hair off to make it easier to complete the look, and keep things more organized. Gather half of your hair as if you are going to do a half-up half-down style, and secure that hair into a bun with a hair tie. You will be working with the remaining hair which is down first.

Pin Curl Flat Iron 3

Step 3: Grasp a small piece of hair, about an inch worth of hair. Roll that hair onto your finger and work upwards. You can choose to go as high as an inch away from the scalp if you want to, or keep the curl towards the end of the hair. I chose to go a little above halfway up my hair with my look.

Step 4: Remove the curled hair from your finger carefully, keeping the finger curl intact. Place the curled up hair into your flat iron, and press the curl for about 10 seconds. Make sure if you didn’t press any part of the curl, to move the flat iron across the hair gently, ensuring you don’t burn your fingers. Press the hair, and release. What you end up with is a springy curl that looks like this.

Step 5: Repeat step 4 all over the hair that is dangling down. Once completed, secure the hair into a hair elastic to keep it from mingling with the remaining straight hair. Release the hair from the bun, and complete step 4 all over the head, until all hair has been curled.

Pin Curl Flat Iron 11

Step 6: Once all of the hair has been pin curled, you can then fluff the curls out with your fingers until each curl is separated. You could also use a boar bristle brush and run it gently through the curls if you have hair that is on the thin side. It will provide volume and a more authentic look.

You can give your hair a quick once over with hairspray so your style will stay all day or night – and after all that work, chances are – you will want to!

I’m sure you will adore your style as much as I adore mine. I absolutely love 40’s inspired hair, and all of the beauty associated with it. If you really want to make it authentic, try tying a red or blue bandana around your hair like I did in my picture – or put on some red lipstick – or both! Enjoy your look, and have fun!

1940′s Hair Tools

Tools used during the 1940’s to develop hairstyles vary widely depending on the style and look the woman wanted to achieve. Today, Lionesse breaks down the main components on any woman of the 1940’s era’s vanity, and explains what each of them were used for and what purpose they had. Many of these items are still used in today’s world, albeit with marked improvements in technology. Let’s take a closer look at these items and what type of styles they were used for.

40s style hair look with headband

Head Bands
Head bands and head wraps were very popular during this time, and were popular amongst girls, teenage girls, and women alike. They were fashionable and helped the girl or lady achieve a cute, fun style that is still worn today.

Setting Lotion
Setting lotion is still used in today’s beauty world, and was quite possible one of the best products women of the 40’s had. This lotion would allow the hair to set in the rollers and stay put all day, keeping the curls in place much like gel, mousse, or hair spray would.

Hair Rollers
Hair rollers were essential to every woman’s daily style. Finding the time to set the hair into the rollers was the true obstacle. It seems as though every woman that lived during these times always had perfectly coiffed hair, wavy and beautiful and luxurious. The hair rollers were typically made from foam and plastic, although there were other forms of rollers such as wire wrapped with rayon or silk. Hair rollers were essential when finger waves and pin curls weren’t attainable due to time constraints.

Bobby Pins
Bobby pins were the go-to hair tool when it came to developing the infamous pompadour hair style, buns, or the half-up half down look. They also came in very handy when wearing a snood, creating an updo, or even to keep frizzy pieces of hair at bay. They were used to keep pin curls in place. Although their design has morphed quite a bit over the years, the idea of them was the same – and they served the same type of purpose.

Combs
Combs were an essential part of any woman’s hair care regimen back in the 40’s. There were different types of combs in which women would use for their styles, from the decorative kind places into an updo or bun of some sort, to the kind they would use for styling and creating styles in their hair.

Bristle Brushes
Bristle brushes, such as boars head bristles and vegetable based brushes with wooden handles, were very popular during the 1940’s era, and donned every woman’s vanity and bathroom counter. These types of brushes provided the perfect brush through for wavy hair after curls had been implemented into the style.

Barettes
Much like the hair clips of today, barettes were a great, fashionable way for teenage girls and women of the 40’s to keep their hair out of their face and add style. They came in different colors but were usually in colors that matched hair color such as brown, yellow, and black.

Top Pageant Hair Styles

Creating a hair style like the top beauty queens of the world isn’t as hard as you might think. Some of the top rated pageantry styles are ones you may already be doing every day. Others are simple enough that anyone could try with great success. Whatever your style, we’ve got something for you in this top pageant hair style guide from Lionesse.

Woman with a middle parted hair style.

Top Style #1: Middle Parted Hair
No matter the actual style you intend on wearing your hair, wearing a middle part is considered to be the number one pageant hair style look in America. Usually, in pageants, the middle part is seen on those wearing a straightened style, or one with waves. Be sure to part perfectly down the middle, and you’ll be well on your way to pageant beauty in no time.

Woman with a perfectly straight hairstyle.

Top Style #2: Perfectly Straight Hair
Perfectly straightened hair is a style that not only looks fabulous, but feels fabulous as well. Those who have thicker hair or curly hair will find that flat ironing the hair seems to alleviate much of the weight of their hair. Perfectly straightened hair looks chic, classy, and gorgeous. If you are prone to frizz, be sure to use a frizz serum in the hair before going about your day to lock in your look and protect it from humidity.

Woman with a side parted hairstyle.

Top Style #3: Side Parted Hair
Side parted hair looks beautiful with a touch of wave and or curl. It gives a completely new look to the typical hairstyle you might wear every day, and if you’re a middle parted kind of girl, this look is sure to change things up a bit. Play this style up by adding waves or curls, or flipping the hair under or outwards. Use your imagination and make your style come to life.

Woman with a slicked back hairstyle.

Top Style #4: Slicked Back Hair
Slicked back hair looks absolutely chic and fantastic, and is a favorite not only among pageant goers, but of supermodels as well. This look keeps the hair out of the face, allowing plenty of focus to zone in on your features. This is a great style to play up your cosmetics game with. Be sure to spray generously with hair spray if this is the look you are after to keep the style all day long.

Woman with a half-up half-down hairstyle.

Top Style #5: Half Up Half Down
The half up half down style isn’t just for kids anymore. This style has been a favorite among pageant contestants for years, because it gives the appearance of an updo, while still allowing you to wear your hair down. You can leave the hair natural, flat iron it, or add some curls with a curling wand. Customize the style to fit your own personal style.

Woman with a curled updo.

Top Style #6: The Up Do Hair Style
What pageant would be complete without the ever popular updo hair style? This look provides plenty of glamour, plenty of attention, and makes you feel as beautiful as you look. There are many variations to the ever popular updo style, from chignons, to curled updo’s, to French twists, and so much more. Explore the different options, practice the styles on yourself, and eventually, you will find a style you love that you’re good at creating.

Can You Dye Your Hair with a Flat Iron?

Woman using a flat iron on her hair.

Dyeing one’s hair has always been a favorite pastime among women, but as many people are aware, dyeing the hair usually exposes the body to harmful chemicals and dyes, which can essentially cause allergic reaction, breathing difficulty, or rash. Not only that, but many hair dye ingredients can leave the hair brittle, damaged, and not true to the color you originally intended on. Lionesse has uncovered a brand new way to transform your mane – at least, it’s coming in the very near future.

Researchers have been hard at work at the University of New Mexico offering a ground breaking revolution in hair dyeing: using a flat iron to infuse color into the hair. Yes, you read that right!

You may be wondering how this is even possible, but science says it’s got everything to do with light. Apparently, ion beams are implemented into these devices, and the particles of light are split into various wavelengths. From there, a wide variety of colors can be achieved – making this device the go-to in hair styling and coloring.

While the device isn’t a spitting image of your typical flat iron you might have sitting in the bathroom drawer, it bears a striking resemblance. How’s that for convenient? Small, simple, and always readily available at your fingertips. Count us in!

Apparently, the researchers and lab they are working with, Los Alamos National Laboratories, have found within their research that this device and the light used is most effective on brown hair. Perhaps this mechanism will be able to morph brown haired beauties into any shade they’d like to be without the use of harsh chemicals and dyes. This sounds too good to be true – but the researchers are claiming this truly is the way of the future.

Although this device isn’t yet available and is currently still undergoing testing in the various phases, one could only wonder what the potential negative outcomes of this hair treatment will be. Will there be any untold damage done to the hair? Is there any type of harmful radiation involved? Could burns occur?  How long will the color last? These are all questions to which we don’t have the answers to as of yet, but you know us – here at Lionesse, we dig and dig until we find what we are looking for. Count on those answers coming soon!

As for now, we are counting this as yet another amazing breakthrough in the hair industry. Soon, stylists will be saying bye bye to the typical chemical laden hair dyes of the past, and opting for the new age hair coloring of the future.

We’re curious to see which of our readers are excited or weary about this new technology. Be sure to share your thoughts on the topic with us in a comment or message. Stay tuned for updates from Lionesse Flat Iron on this amazing hair technology, and we’ll be sure to bring them to you as we receive them.

Sarah has put together a clear cut, simple style to give you braids, curls, and volume all in one. This is one article you don’t want to miss if you want to look prom fresh and gorgeous. This is also a smart option if you’d rather save the money you will otherwise be spending at a salon for rush service to get hair you might not even end up being completely satisfied with.

From here, we hand the article off to Sarah – and we hope you all enjoy this tutorial!

Hi ladies! Welcome to my tutorial on how to get a beautiful prom look with a flat iron. It’s easy enough that anyone can do it – and it’s also not time consuming at all. Here’s how you can get the look I created.

Prom Hair with a Flat Iron Tutorial.

What You will Need:

  • Fine tooth comb
  • Bobby pins
  • Flat Iron
  • Hairspray
  • Hair decorations such as hair jewels, tiara, studded pins and etc if you desire (optional)

Here’s how to achieve the look I have created in the pictures:

Lionesse-Tutorial-Prom-Hair-with-Flat-Iron-1

Step 1: Start out with flat, straight, smooth hair.

Grasp the hair around the crown as if you were creating a half-up, half-down style.

Step 2: Grasp the hair around the crown of the head as if you were creating a half-up, half-down style. Lift that hair high into the air and backcomb underneath that area, making sure you are careful not to cause any breakage or damage to the hair.

Release the hair, smoothing out the top layer with a comb.

Step 3: Release the hair, smoothing out the top layer with the comb.

Create two small braids on either side of the face.Once braided, wrap it around the back, securing with bobby pins.

Step 4: Beginning with one side of the head, you are going to want to create two small braids on either side of the face. Once the hair is braided, wrap it around the back of the head, securing with bobby pins. Repeat the same for the opposite side of the head.

Take a flat iron and add curls and waves.

Step 5: Take your flat iron and add curls and waves to the hair left hanging on the shoulders. You can be dramatic if you’d like, creating tight, springy curls, or you can create a softer look which contains more waves. I went with a medium curl. You can also curl the hair further up the hair shaft for a fuller look, however; I chose to curl the ends of my hair because I think it looks nicer.

Spray the hair with a good hairspray

Step 6: Spray the hair all over – especially the curls – with a good hairspray with full or mega hold to retain the curls.

Completed Look.

Step 7: If you like, add a tiara to feel like a princess, diamond studded bobby pins as accents, hair jewels, or other hair decorations to give your look a fancy feel. Now, you’re ready to hit the dance floor and look your best – and the best part is, you created the style yourself! So much fun, so pretty, and so simple to do.

Thank you very much for checking out my tutorial – I look forward to creating more beautiful tutorials for you soon!

Half Up, Half Down – With Style
One of the most popular hair styles for the 2015 prom season – and for many years past – is the half up-do, half down style. This style is simple and easy to achieve on your own, and you can get the look within 30 minutes.

Simply tease the crown of the hair to add some volume to the updo portion. From there, smooth out the hair on top with a fine toothed comb. Gather half of the hair as you normally would for any half-up, half down look and bring it to the back of the head, securing with a clear elastic. From there, curl the hair that is in the ponytail and then the hair that rests on the shoulders. You can add more dramatic curls by making the curls tighter, or make soft waves using your flat iron. Be sure to give your hair a once over with a good quality anti-humidity strong hold hairspray to keep the look all night. This is one of the easiest looks to master at home.

Sleek and Smooth
For those who want a sleek, smooth look, opting for flat ironing your hair is generally the best option. Simply spray a heat protecting spray onto your hair, flat iron as normal, and add a hair serum from roots to tips after completed that provides shine, frizz protection, and protection from humidity. Simple, easy, and beautiful, this look is ever classy for the prom.

Braided Chignon
The braided chignon style is super easy, super cute, and looks lovely no matter the style of dress or makeup you are going for. Not only will this style last all night, but it will look glamorous like the ladies of the red carpet.

To create the braids, simply grab a section from the side of the head towards the front, braid back, and pin with a bobby pin. Repeat the same for the opposite side. From there, gather all of the hair to the back of the head and wrap into a chignon by holding the hair straight up into the air, twisting it until tight, and then wrapping it into a bun to the back of the head. Keep the chignon on the lower side of the head as low buns are trending for spring 2015. You can then mess the chignon up a bit if you like the messy look, or keep it looking sleek. Pin to the back of the head with enough bobby pins to make you feel as though the hair is secure, and give it a spray with a good strong hold hairspray.

Plasma Hair Treatments for Better Hair?

For those with thinning hair, it can be difficult to find a solution to help you get a fuller, thicker head of hair. With the multitude of products available claiming to boost the volume and texture within the hair, many fall flat on their claims. Lionesse has discovered that there is another way: plasma hair treatments. Plasma hair treatments give those with thinning hair or thin hair a boost in the fullness and amount of hair they have.  Read on to learn more about what hair plasma treatments are, and what they can achieve.

What Are Plasma Hair Treatments?
Plasma hair treatments are generally performed by a trained medical doctor and are administered through injections. Plasma is platelets found within the blood and they are responsible for healing and clotting of the blood when injury occurs. In terms of helping hair regrowth or to aid in the thickening of the hair, doctors believe that hair growth halts or stops when injury of the scalp occurs. They also believe plasma can stimulate the hair roots and follicles to begin regrowth and heal themselves. The process of receiving hair plasma treatments occurs in the following manner:

  • Blood is collected from your vein, as it would be if you were to get routine blood work completed. From there, the blood is put into a centrifuge where the blood is spun for approximately 15 minutes. During this process, the blood plasma separates from the whole blood, giving doctors something to work with to use on your scalp.
  • General anesthesia is applied to the areas of the scalp where the injections are to take place. This will make the process as painless as possible, and give you some comfortability.
  • A micro needling device will be ran over the areas in which are to be treated. This micro needling will cause microscopic damage to the top layer of the scalp, allowing for the human body’s reaction of the healing process to begin.
  • Directly following the needling process, the plasma is injected into the areas which were micro needled, allowing for the plasma to work with the body’s healing response.
  • The process takes approximately 1-3 hours to complete, and will involve minimal amounts of pain. Once general anesthesia has worn off, you may feel a bit more significant amount of pain. This can be treated with over the counter pain relievers such as Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen.

What Can Plasma Hair Treatments Do?
This process has been shown through science to be very effective in regenerating new hair growth for thinned hair. They can help the patient achieve fuller, thicker hair and begin the regrowth process.

Not everybody is a candidate for this particular procedure, however, so it’s always best to check with your doctor and assess your medical history before undergoing this procedure. Those who have diabetes or any scalp infections are not likely candidates for a plasma hair treatment.
