Hair Style Tip - Use clips to section hair while you style

Hair Style Tip of the Week: Use clips to section hair while you style!

As a hair stylist, it's easy for me to work around the client, stand to a side, hold a brush and a dryer at the same time, all while working.   But at home, it's not always so easy to manage all of those moving parts and keep hair from "flying away" while you're trying to style or blow dry your hair.

Think of your hair in 3 sections.

Top:    Front & Back
Sides:   Front & Back
Back:  Top and Bottom

When you think of your hair in these 3 major sections, it makes styling hair at home a lot easier.  So whether you're blow-drying, flat ironing, or sectioning hair for curling, you'll save a lot of time (and angst) when you section hair out in this manner and work accordingly.  Additionally, the end result will be a lot neater and you'll reduce the risk of tangling or uneven results in your overall style.

If you are thermal styling - remember to allow your hair a little "cool-down" period.  I generally finish all styles with a light-hold aerosol spray to lock in a little shape, but still leave freedom and movement.

Work neatly - Style fabulously.
