I get this question pretty frequently from my clients. A lot of ladies want the natural look and low-maintenance routine of letting their hair gray naturally. But how do you age gracefully and still look fresh?

I think the most important thing to pulling off the naturally “unpigmented” look is to make sure that you have the following:

1. A really clean, precise haircut. The sharper the style, the more classy your gray tresses will look. Also, don’t feel like you have to stick with the same haircut you’ve always had - grow it out, or maybe chop it all short! Have fun with it!

2. Good styling techniques. Again, to make your grays shine, you need to either keep hair smooth by blow-drying with a round brush/flat iron, or using good products to reduce frizz if you keep your hair curly.

3. Makeup that matches your skintone. If you’re going gray for the first time, go see your makeup artist to get a new palette of colors that will make sure you don’t get washed out. You might try a brighter lipstick or a new kind of foundation.

4. A style that suits your personality. Make sure everything in your closet is something you LOVE (and really, this goes for everyone) - because those little things that make you feel good will shine through on the outside, too! Picking colors that look good with your skin is also really important because you don’t have the extra color coming from your hair. The great thing, though, is that often having gray/white hair means you can wear any color you like!

Here are some pictures I found that inspired me - I hope they inspire you too!

New ideas!

Posted by Bethany in General Info, Outside Links, Q&A

A good friend recently told me about her frustration with not being able to find any good “inspiration” hair style pictures online.

I told her I would see what I could do about finding some good links for all of you guys/girls looking for a new style.  And then, voila!  The link below popped into my inbox, and I am sharing it with all of you.

L’Oreal Professionnel Hair Inspiration Gallery

This link has also been added to my links column over on the side of the page –>

Enjoy! I will be adding more links as I find them. If you have a favorite site to find hairstyle pics, please leave a comment!

Ciao,

Q: How should I wear my hair for…

Posted by Bethany in Q&A

Q: I need help figuring out how to wear my hair differently for different situations. I’m bored, but I don’t want to be inappropriate. Help! ~Worried in Wisconsin

A: This is a complicated question, but something that I think most of us deal with. The answer will vary depending on what type of hair you have, and in what kinds of situations you find yourself. Here are a few examples to help you out. (If any of you have specific occasions coming up and need a more specific answer, email bethany@bethanylaska.com.)


Situation:
Work (Office)
Hair Type: Long and “young”
Problem: How to look professional and have people take you seriously when you’re so trendy, young, and beautiful.

Before:
While this girl obviously LOVES her job, people are going to notice her over-voluminous sexy waves before they notice her impressive sales pitch.
Sexy Office

After:
While she still has her youthful charm - simply pulling hair back into a simple, low, chignon will help keep everyone focused on her intellectual assets.
Subdued Office

Situation: My Best Friend’s Wedding
Hair Type: Short and Sweet
Problem: Everyone else is wearing their their hair up and curly! What to do?

Before:
While this well-defined cut usually stands on its own - to feel dressed up, a little “zing” would be nice.
Straight Short

After:
Adding a soft fingerwave makes this crop classy and very black-tie worthy. In my opinion, red lipstick is almost an essential accessory to this type of hairstyle, but for summer weddings, a red-tinted lipgloss will do the trick without upstaging the bride.
Wavy Short

Please send me your feedback and your suggestions! I’d love to hear from you! bethany@bethanylaska.com

Happy August, guys!

A: Don’t wash your hair for 26 years.

80 Year Old Man Gets First Hair Wash in 26 Years

A few things I would like to know:

1. Why didn’t he wash his hair for 26 years? and, more importantly…

2. Why did he wash it now? At this point, why even bother?

That is one frickin long beard braid he’s got going there. I’m really glad I didn’t have to shampoo that guy.
