How To Fix Wiry Eyebrows

Some people have bushier, wirier eyebrows than others. This can be due to an excess of hormones called androgens, which make your hair production more masculine. Wiry eyebrows can also be a result of genetics, passed down by your parents. Either way, wiry hairs can be a bugbear when trying to tidy up your eyebrows. They often stray in unintended directions, curl around or appear too long and thick. Luckily, there are ways to fix wiry eyebrows. Does this Spark an idea?

Step 1
Take daily vitamin supplements. Eyebrow loss can be attributed to nutritional deficiencies. Look for supplements that contain high levels of protein and vitamins A and E. These nutrients encourage healthy hair growth, including eyebrow hair.

Step 2
Apply a topical treatment containing minoxidil, which is sold under the brand name Rogaine. Use a cotton swab to apply the foam to your eyebrow area twice a day. When you begin to see hair growth, apply the foam once or twice a week. Be careful not to get the foam in your eyes.

Beauty Q&A: Frizzy Hair

Q. I’m getting married in July in Houston. The problem is that my hair is really wavy and tends to frizz when it’s humid. How can I keep my hair under control. I’d like to blow it out and wear it straight but I’m afraid the second I step outside it’ll explode into an unruly mess. Help!!

A. Don’t let your waves get you down. To take the wave out and fight frizz, you need to use the right styling tools: a large, round brush (try Conair Classics Vented Boar Bristle Brush); a product that will smooth the hair shaft and and add some shine (try Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon or John Frieda’s readytowear Shaping & Glossing Balm); and some hair clips. When blow drying, start with a small section of hair from the nape of your neck. Secure the rest on top of your head with the clips. Start drying at the roots, following the length of hair with the round brush and the dryer. Don’t be afraid to pull the hair up a little — be sure to hold it taut with the brush. Continue until the section is completely dry before moving on to the next section. When you’ve finished drying your entire head (be patient, this may take a while), apply the finishing balm to smooth down any stray hairs and add moisture. This should hold your straight hair in place and add a little shine. Done!

The Mane Event: Making Waves

It’s no secret that big, good looking waves are making a comeback on the catwalk. What’s surprising is how easily the carefree look crosses over to another walk — the wedding aisle! Loose waves and curls give an ethereal, romantic look to a bride’s hair –- the perfect topper for the perfect gown. We talked to celebrity stylist Rochelle Weithorn to find the groove.

STEP 1 : Begin by washing your hair, says Weithorn. Add conditioner and concentrate on the ends.

STEP 2: Coat hair with a dime-sized amount of a silicone product such as Frizz-Ease Hair Serum to seal in moisture and keep frizzies at bay.

STEP 3 : Blow-dry your hair straight with a small, round brush, and then add another drop of silicone for extra shine. (If you have curly hair, don’t bother straightening it, and skip to step 4.)

STEP 4: Break out your curling iron — great for smaller twists and spiral curls — or electric rollers, which are ideal for long hair and loose waves.

Nutrition: Eating for Energy

They said this marriage stuff wouldn’t be easy. Parties, showers, appointments, and dinners — all on a checklist the length of your arm — can leave you feeling stressed and drained. What’s the answer? Would you believe food? Read on to find out how eating right can fuel you up and calm you down.

REV UP
The days before your wedding are no time to run out of steam — a nod to the gods of nutrition is all it takes to give yourself a natural boost, says Liz Ward, R.D., a nutritionist with the Harvard Community Health Center. “Unfortunately, women don’t often pay attention to what they’re eating at a time like this, because they’re so stressed out,” she notes.

A high-carbohydrate, low-fat diet in the days before and on the wedding day itself will give you the energy you need to have the time of your life, Ward says:

Fill up on pasta, rice, and cereals, along with fresh fruits and vegetables and low-fat dairy products like milk and yogurt.

The Mane Event: Getting It Straight

You’ve decided to wear your hair super-straight on your wedding day. Piece of cake, right? Not always -– particularly if you’ve got thin, flat hair or a head full of curls. Even if you’re lucky enough to have thick, shiny tresses, a simple blow-dry may not give you the extra volume and bounce you need to look picture perfect. We asked celebrity stylist Rochelle Weithorn to help us straighten it all out.

STEP 1
Begin by washing your hair, says Weithorn, adding as little conditioner as possible but concentrating on the ends. “Conditioner weighs your hair down,” she explains, “which prevents it from staying full and bouncy.”

STEP 2
Next, coat hair with a straightening aid, such as KMS Flat-Out Relaxing Balm (www.kmshaircare.com), or add a dime-sized amount of a silicone product such as Frizz-Ease Hair Serum (available at www.drugstore.com) to your locks. This will seal in moisture and keep frizzies at bay. When you’ve finished, blow-dry your entire head until hair is damp, then section it into four equal parts and secure with clips.

Popular Haircuts For Women

There are popular haircuts for women who don’t want their hair to be long and a hassle to deal with but also don’t feel comfortable with their hair being too short. Fall is a good time to try out a new hairstyle in general, as the weather is growing colder which allows you to hide your hair in a hat if you don’t like the way it looks after you get it cut. Be sure to consider your hair type! Talking to a hairdresser is always helpful.

Heart-Shaped
When you’ve got a heart-shaped face like Reese Witherspoon, the goal is to minimize the width of face. David Evangelista of David Evangelista Beauty recommends, “Long hair past the shoulders with bangs or bobbed hair below the chin with bangs. Either one of these hairstyles work great.” Tracey Cunningham from Redken adds that blonde hair with highlights and lowlights and an ultra blonde base are hot this autumn and fall.

Pedicures For Men

Most men believe that pedicures are strictly for women. But I say that nothing can be further from the truth. A simple pedicure helps take care of our feet that tend to get tired and sore after a long week of work. Add gym and other errands to the list, and your feet have had a marathon of things to take care of. Not just women, but men are on their feet all the time as well. So, why should they be left out from the wondrous benefits of enjoying a relaxing pedicure? Pedicure for men not only helps eliminate ingrown toenails, but it also makes those “manly feet” look passable.

When it comes to pedicures for men, the goal is for clean and healthy feet, not painted pieces of art. There’s no need to worry, most pedicures for men never even use a single drop of nail polish.

Pedicures not only make feet look and feel fantastic, they keep them healthy. Cracked heels and calluses can be moisturized or filed away. Toenails can be shaped and clipped to prevent ingrown nails or razor sharp edges. Infections or fungal issues can be controlled and treated with cleaning and lotion.

Excessive Hair Loss in Women

There is a saying “The hair is a women’s crown” and based on this many women fret when they start to lose their hair even if it was a strain or two – what more to say when excessive hair loss in women occurs.

Although it seems unbelievable but yet it is true and profound with each year women are made to believe that there are possibilities of them losing their hair.

Stress
Stress can have a debilitating effect on the body. It can lead to insomnia, cause depression, raise cortisol levels and lead to weight gain. But it can also have an impact on hair. If you have an illness or a major surgery, hair has a tendency to fall out due to the stress. However, this type of hair loss is usually temporary.

Alopecia
The sudden loss of most, if not all, of your hair could be due to a condition called alopecia, which can be triggered by rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, thyroid disease and, some believe, stress and trauma. Some people have abnormalities in their immune systems that can lead to auto-immunity. In the case of alopecia, the immune system turns on the hair follicles and attacks them, causing hair to fall out. In some cases, the hair grows back and in other cases, it doesn’t.
