For this weeks Hot on The Hanger CBS 19's Tara Wheeler visits Face Value Salon in Crozet to learn how to do different hair styles for glamorous looks. The owner of the salon, Lucinda Riley, says before you start styling your hair it is important to prepare the hair with products.
For updos she recommends separating the front of the hair from the back; that way, you can style the back without pulling and flattening the front. Pin the loose curls in the back and then tease the front part of your hair for volume, sweeping the front pieces and attaching them to the back.
Up-does are go-to hair styles for formal events, but you can also look fancy with your hair down. Stylists from the salon recommend using a curling iron for a glamorous look.
"We want a very nice wave pattern, we rolled one going up and one under. When you take it out you get a nice tousled effect," said Will Rossom, Master Stylist of Face Value Salon.
Rossum also recommends using your fingers to separate and rake through the curls. They say not use a brush because you will lose the style.
If you have a short hair and want a new 'do for the New Year, adding a hair piece is a quick and easy way to revamp your hair style.
For the perfect bun, the trick is a sock. Cut the toes off of a dress sock, and roll it to look like a donut. Then place your hair into a pony tail wherever you want the bun to be and place the sock 3/4 the way down the hair. Tuck the hair around the sock as neatly as you can, then roll the hair and sock down until it reaches the base of your ponytail. You now have a bun for a new hair style for the New Year!
