How to Choose Hairstyles that Work for You


Hi, Sharon Danley here with another
Two Minute Tip. This week it’s about your hair styling options and decisions. Often when we are looking for a new hairstyle and we find something that’s – well – it’s just gorgeous, that’s exactly what I want. The thing is that’s
important to remember is it’s often photoshopped, the photos are taken with a stylist just outside of the frame of camera. Like that would be – my hands
missing but it’s right there but you can’t see it when I put it there that’s
what I mean by outside of frame. And that stylist is adjusting the hair after
every few takes that are taken of the models hair. Little consideration also,
when considering a picture that you like, is given to the hair texture of that
model’s hair and your hair texture. The volume, the thickness, the manageability of the style, and most important the suitability of it for you. The other thing that often gets overlooked is we tend to ignore our own lifestyle and how
that hairstyle works for our lifestyle needs and what, you know, our lifestyle
needs require in a hairdo – you know – and not only the hairdo but the time we
are allotted to manage it so that it looks great no matter what. And the other
things that we tend to ignore or forget her don’t realize we need to think about,
are our head size in relation to our body frame. Also our face shape, our
hairline, whether it’s high or low, our neck length, our ear placement on our skull, and things of this nature. Important? You betcha! And what’s equally important is how that
hairstyle will hold up for us, its its suitability in the job we are doing, its maintenance and how it works with the actual hair that we have. I can tell you firsthand as having been a stylist in film and television – every model you see in pictures and I do mean everyone – is wearing some kind of hair extension or padding that
has been perfectly coiffed for the camera even if it is a so-called
red carpet event. Believe me. You can bet their stylists on the red carpet of
these celebrities are just out of sight of the cameras both moving and still –
constantly primping them between sections of shots and that’s on the red
carpet too. So to refocus our goals in having the ultimate hair styles for you
please remember these things. #1 hairstyle is more important than hair
color. #2 you should have 3 or more different looks out of any one cut that
you can manage easily by yourself. #3 your style should suit your lifestyle. If you
have to constantly attend to your hair if you have to constantly attend to your hair or it gets in your way a lot then it’s
not working unless this is what is required for your job. #4 once you
have a cut and style that suits you and your hair texture and weight keep a file
and note why you like it note any little tricks you have found to
style it etc and take pictures front back and profile for your file too.
#5 make full use of hair padding, extensions, scrunchies – believe me they
will make your styling much easier and more to your satisfaction. And #6 like all
skills practice does make perfect. Practice one hairstyle per week
while revamping your look and I promise you’ll be pleased with the end results. We’ll see you next time.

    Thanks so much for sharing your time and expertise with your viewers ! Sharon, you look beautiful in this video. BTW, " HAPPY THANKSGIVING " to you and yours ! πŸ’š

  2. Excellent tips. I always admire the gorgeous hair in the magazines at my hair salon and when I say to my stylist β€œI want that β€œ she-dashes my dreams. πŸ™‚

  3. Very informative, as always. I look so forward to your video uploads, every video is full of useful and practical information. Thank you for sharing your expertise. Your makeup is looks flawless and so classy. Looking forward to your next 2 Minute Tip video.

  4. Good points. Here is another that I have found valid: if you haven't had a compliment on your hair in the last 2 weeks, you may need a change in your hairstyle or color. I have found this to be very true and it always lets you know that your hairstyle is working for you—-not some model.

  5. I recently had my long dyed ends cut off & my silver hair is to my shoulders. I'm retired, so I don't need to look a certain way. I'm letting it grow long, to be able to wear it in a pony tail, braid, or bun. I need my hair to be in these styles, when I'm working with my horses, at my barn, & with my other outside pets. I'm in FL, where it's usually hot & humid, so a style that touches my face or neck, makes me sweat more. I'm choosing my hair style to go with my lifestyle. Some non horse people tell me to wear it a little shorter, but they don't understand. My horses don't care what I look like, just so I bring them food. πŸ™‚

  6. Thank you. Its one of the reasons I am scared to go to any stylist in my small town. Every woman in my town has the chopped off look. I have the longest hair in my town. I cut my own hair 1/4 inch every 6 weeks, and have loved learning a French twist.

  7. I accidentally discovered you a few weeks ago Sharon as I was trawling through You Tube videos looking for messy bun tips. I feel you have done more for the way I look than anyone or anything else. You look absolutely wonderful and your make up tips are so useful. My hair is about the same length as yours and I would love to have the courage to let it go grey in the way that you did. I will do eventually.
    I felt very flattered yesterday when I was sporting one of your hair styles and using your make up tips when an 18 year old who I work with told me how nice I looked. I thanked her profusely thinking, "thank you Sharon Danley".

  8. Sharon, have you made a video yet about foods for a healthy lifestyle, or what daily eating habits you enjoy etc.? I am asking b/c you look very healthy, your skin, teeth, eyes….If you haven't, would you consider doing one? πŸ€— Thank you!!! I so enjoy your videos!!

  9. Well said! I have tried a lot of styles and have found that when you find the right style for your hair type, length and lifestyle you can fix it in the morning and it will look great all day! If you find yourself messing with your hair and reaching for the curling iron or straightener part way thru the day….you need to re think your hairstyle πŸ˜€

  10. I remember all my favorite actresses in films in the sixties had gorgeous thick full hair. Ann Margaret, Mary Tyer Moore, Marlo Thomas, etc. I tried so hard to style my pre-teen, fine hair to emulate them. I ratted, sprayed, teased. Never could understand how they got their hair so beautiful. Finally, when I was older I realized they were wearing some type of wig. Even the men! Sean Connery comes to mind.

  11. I am enjoying your videos and learning about my 'new' hair possibilities in this season in my life. My husband prefers that I continue to color but I'm about ready to shave the whole mess! It's gone from all medium brown to white in the front and charcoal in the back-what is that?? I like to pull it back/up but at the length it needs to be to do that, creates a lampshade effect, which is not flattering with my body type. This has presented continued challenges to me…your videos help. Thank you

  12. Learned some facts I didn't know about celeb hair. πŸ™‚ I'm retired as well, so I'm casual in my life style, so the tips are great for any life style! XO
