2017 Hairstyles for Men

2017 Hairstyles for Men


The looks for 2017 Men’s Hairstyles seems to be refined, and in many different cuts and styles. These cuts give a guy plenty of choices on how he can wear his hair. Almost any style that is well groomed, looks good. Whether you want long hair, short hair, or an awesome combo, the main point is to keep it fresh. 
“The world’s had a rough time of it in 2016, which – in a hair-raising instance of pathetic fallacy – might explain why super-slick, neat-and-tidy hairstyles are giving way to something a little more messed up.”

“In 2017, we’ll see men keeping the sides of their hair short and creating the top as the main focal point, embracing longer, more textured styles on top,” says Stelios Nicolaou, Aveda’s master barber.”

The most popular men’s hair trends at the moment are:

  • Messy textured hairstyles
  • Spiky haircuts
  • Crop haircut styles
  • Long fringes
  • Haircuts with lots of longer natural flow and movement


Now take a look at these hairstyle’s:

*Tousled Texture





*The Pomp





*Hard Part




*Side Part




*The Fade




“An easy way to achieve this style is to have your barber clipper your hair short on the sides and back of your head, fading into longer hair on the top that’s point-cut with a scissors for an uneven, nicely textured look.”

Tame Your Mane: DIY Detanglers for Your Hair Type

Tame Your Mane: DIY Detanglers for Your Hair Type

I have curly hair, so I really appreciate a good deteangler. Young Living Essential Oils have created DIY detanglers that everyone can use. Give it a try today!


“Every now and then, we all get a visit from the Bedhead Fairy. If you have children, you know that bedhead can strike any time, night or day, without even having to see a bed. The next time you’re trying to tame some wild tresses, reach for this DIY detangler!”

“To make things simple, each of these recipes starts with the same conditioning base. All you need to do is add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to this base to transform it into a custom detangling solution that will perfectly fit your needs.”


DIY Detangler Base


Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Lavender Mint Conditioner, Lavender Conditioner, or Copaiba Vanilla Conditioner
  • 2 cups distilled water
  • 24-oz. spray bottle



Directions:

  1. Bring the distilled water to a simmer without boiling. Combine the warm water and conditioner in the bottle, shaking to combine. Add the recommended essential oils to the detangling base, shaking once again to distribute.
  2. Apply the detangler to hair as needed, using the bottle’s spray attachment and focusing on the ends rather than the scalp, gently combing to dispense evenly throughout your hair. You can either rinse out the detangler or leave it in for extra conditioning. Style your hair as usual and enjoy the pleasant aroma of essential oils throughout the day!


Here are five recipes of essential oils that you can add to the detangling base to perfectly complement your hair type:

Normal Hair

  •  5 drops of Geranium essential oil
  • 5 drops of Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood essential oil


 Oily Hair

  • 5 drops of Tea Tree essential oil
  • 5 drops of Clary Sage essential oil

Fall Hair Trend – White Honey

Fall Hair Trend – White Honey

The fall hair trends are in, and I see that if you’re going to be a blonde, go with the shade of White Honey. I am a natural blonde, and you see that less and less. I am a honey blonde, and have golden curls but my color is much darker than a platinum or ash blonde. My husband calls me “Goldielocks”, and it makes me feel great. If you’re planning on going blonde this season, or if you need to re-do your style, consider going white honey. It’s got the color of ash blonde, with a splash of tone to it and it really adds dimension. 

  • Check out the different shades of blonde

  • Every blonde needs a weekly deep conditioner

  • These are great tips to taking care of your blonde

  • Sometimes the bleach from highlights can make your scalp feel itchy or burned. Here is a great way to fix it

Hair Chalk

Hair Chalk


I bought my first piece of hair Chalk from a blow-dry bar (like a salon, but sells mostly blow-dry’s for women coming in with hair already wet to save time and money at the salon) in Colonial Heights, VA over the spring. They had many colors, but I chose my favorite, hot pink. 

I’m a blonde, and it looks great with my complexion and hair color. I wore it first at a wedding, with just a few pink highlights. I loved how it evenly distributed itself in my hair by just brushing my hand over my hair. 

*This is the pink Chalk from above. It has a special hand application tool that makes it so easy to apply and I don’t get super messy and dirty with this applicator. The cost was $20, which may seem steep, but I have had it for over six months and it looks like I have only used it a few times. Because of the special hand applicator, you don’t waste anything. I would suggest getting this kind of Chalk over any other kinds with applicators and Chalk with non-applicators. 



My girlfriend loved the hair Chalk, and found us both a great hair Chalk kit with 24 colors in it from Groupon. Whether you buy your Chalk from Amazon, or a salon, or Walmart, it’s all the same Chalk, but some are better than others. For example, in the 24-piece kit, you must dampen your hair first, and then get the Chalk wet for it to apply to the hair. It’s messy, but I have a lot of fun doing it. And it’s really not that big of a mess, mainly just on my hands. But you still must be careful with your clothes when using chalk that requires you to wetting your hair. Tonight I put a little red (that looks dark pink), light blue, light green, dark green and purple. I did the best applying purple and red. 
*The light green in this picture looks almost yellow, and the dark green looks so sharp. The purple was the easiest color to apply, and the red came out looking almost fuschia. Looks fun doesn’t it?

Homemade Hair Masks and Their Ingredients 

  • Need to Moisturize? 

1. Avocado

“Avocado has a well-deserved reputation for one of nature’s perfect foods. Its oils and proteins will smooth and moisturize your locks without weighing down fine hair. Mash up half an avocado and add a couple of drops of peppermint essential oil. Shampoo hair, squeeze out water and apply mask. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then rinse. My hair came out super soft – not flat or greasy. And the added scent made sitting around with green goop on your head much more pleasant. If you’re not worried about weighing down your hair you can amp up the moisture by adding 1-2 tablespoons of oil, egg yolk or yogurt.”

  
2. Coconut Oil

“The wonders of coconut oil never cease! This oil is heavy, which is great for penetrating deep into the hair shaft, but use it sparingly, especially if you have fine or thin hair. Take a tablespoon of coconut oil and apply to the ends of damp hair. If the oil is solid just warm in the microwave until liquid before applying. Got really dry hair? Keep the oil on overnight and shampoo out in the morning.”

   
 

3. Banana + Olive Oil

“Not only can bananas work their magic on your feet, but they are awesome for your hair! Mix a banana with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and mash thoroughly until the banana is pureed. (You want a smoothie like texture so you don’t end up with banana chunks in your hair.) Then massage into your hair and scalp. Leave treatment on for 30 minutes then rinse thoroughly and shampoo.”

  
  
4. Pumpkin and Honey

“The perfect use for canned pumpkin leftovers (because there are always leftovers). Pumpkins have lots of amazing benefits – they’re rich in vitamins A and C, beta-carotene, potassium, and zinc. Add 1-2 tablespoons of honey, a natural humectant, to one cup of pumpkin puree and pack as much as you can onto your hair and scalp. You’ll need to either wrap your hair in saran wrap or wear a shower cap to keep the mask in place. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes and then rinse. Feel free to apply to your face as well.”
