PETS FOR ADOPTION

Easy updos you can try

The bridal hair trends this season are updos and buns. The ramps have been showcasing this style, albiet with embellishments, floral headpieces, and attractive jewellery. However, even a basic updo can make heads turn. Updos have a timeless appeal and with the help of an arsenal of hair products, you can get the perfect look. Here are a few looks that you could try...

High chignon

The chignon is a timeless style that will always spell elegance. Perfect for brides who are in their 30s.

Try this:

Blow-dry your hair and then take a section of the hair from the crown and back comb it. Now, roll the hair into a long chignon and pin it up. Use a hair accessory on the side you are putting your pins in, leaving the smooth side as it is.


Dainty twist

A very girly and pretty hairstyle that goes well with high neck or collared gowns. This style can take years off your face, however, it might be tricky if you have very long and thick hair.

Try this:

You could opt for a middle parting or you could also sweep up your hair into a small bouffant. Once the front is done, take small sections and twist them — begin from the sides. Now, make a low pony and then twist it up. Using pins, secure the hair in a way that the band is hidden. Use pearl pins, or single flowers to do it up. You could also use a floral tiara. Floral headbands are big on the international ramp right now.


Mid-parting bun

This is a no-fuss, matter-of-fact kind of a look and will suit brides who are in their late 30s or early 40s. The mid-parting lends the face a youthful appeal. The simple way in which the hair is tucked away on top, defines the look.

Try this:

Do a middle parting. Take a section of hair from the crown and spray all three sections to get a smooth look. Now pin the sections from the side, then gather the hair and make a high bun. Leave a few loose ends.


Tiny nape knot

Fret not if your have short hair and can't carry an updo. Choose to sport a nape-bun. If you have curly hair, this style is the easiest to manage and would look great with backless or low back gowns. Prefect for women in their late 20s.

Try this:

Use fingers to comb through your just-washed hair. Don't try to tame it, the ruffled up strands on the crown can give extra body to the style. Gather the ends at the nape and tie with a band. Pin a hair accessory that matches your gown.


Side halo

Young bridesmaids, most of the time, have to go with loose curls, or blow-dried hair at weddings. This side bun works for girls with shoulder-length hair and can also be worn by teenagers.

Try this:

Begin with a side parting. Sweep all your hair to one side and secure with a band. Twist your hair around the band and pin it. Let the strays be as they are. Attach a white satin floer on it with hair clips.


TIPS to keep in mind

- On the D-Day, do not use hair products that you have never tired before. If it led to allergies, you would be in trouble.

- Go easy on styling creams and sprays — a very stiff hairstyle might ruin your look and make you appear too severe.

Pets of the week for Sunday, Feb. 1, 2015

Samson


Samson is a 1-year-old domestic short haired gray tiger cat with white markings. He is not a candidate for declawing. He is an adventurous, talkative and loving cat. He loves to keep busy by playing with toys, climbing, jumping and running around. He also enjoys attention and loves being petted and cuddled. He needs an active home that will keep him entertained. He will likely do well with other animals given proper introduction.


Lily


Lily is a 1-year-old spayed German shorthair pointer and hound mix. She is current on vaccinations, microchipped and has been tested for heartworm, Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis and anaplasmosis. She is a beautiful, affectionate and energetic young dog. She is social and is looking for an active owner who will provide her with plenty of exercise. She should do well in a home with other dogs given proper introduction, and she loves to play. She would do best with older children because she does jump up when she gets excited.

Hair buns for men the new look


“Top knot, hey? I was there yesterday,” one girl says to another in reference to the hairdo she is casually sporting at work.


It was a funny comment, implying a lack of enthusiasm or interest in getting ready. If directed toward a man, it would be the complete opposite because it is today’s male fashion statement.


A man with a top knot is totally in style, sporting a worked-at look, grown and groomed. No fall back here, as this lack of effort is actually total style effort. It’s trendy, it’s the hair bun, and it’s most likely paired with a full-on beard. Welcome to a man’s world, man bun.


It goes with plaid. It goes with a suit. It goes to the gym. It can even complement a tux. Every environment, every socioeconomic situation, every age.


Seen around the world with a gender-sharing, straight and gay male love, the man bun is on top of the world and located at the back of the head within a generic elastic band. Cheap and easy, polished and “hot,” as many are referring to it, the “mangled ball” as The Daily Beast pegs it takes over with simplistic, sophisticated ruggedness.


Metrosexuals move over as the term “Lumbersexual” warrants unattended scruff, neck beards, and the embrace of thickness, fullness, and an outdoorsy aura.


Think plaid, red and black, blue and black — or pairing it with anything canoe, cabin or Christmas fireside-like.


Don’t fret, MetroJack and MetroJill can still unite in this new light, now sharing hairstyles in addition to wardrobe, as I personally know from borrowing a checkered Gap flannel button-up from the other half of the closet.


Not to imply this slick look has to stay outside. Or even belongs outside, or anywhere else in particular for that matter, such as Brooklyn. As many incorrectly assume its home, the man bun does not strictly belong looming in the world of artists and under the dooming title and ownership of hipsters.


In fact, this clean, serious look dates back to Japanese samurai and translates amidst any ethnicity, any occupation. Popping up in Hollywood, Leonardo DiCaprio and Jared Leto sport it on the red carpet.


And speaking of sport, its construction keeps the hair off the face of Chicago Bulls’ court centre Joakim Noah, now a man-bun icon.


As popular as it is, there is always something new on its way in. What could replace the obsession with the man bun? Existing simultaneously for the time being, male hair trends are seguing back to a manicured look of the 1930s and ’20s with high interest in barber shops.


Popping up within Vancouver’s Gastown and other major North American cities, if you Google “barber shops New York” you’ll find quite a list, including an East Village location for the Blind Barber, a hot spot which has also brought itself to Toronto’s Holt Renfrew in the form of a pop-up shop.


What to learn from these barbers and this rekindled craving and motive for your regular visit to one? It’s all about maintenance right now. Clean and coiffed is in. Hair is either short or long, with sparse interest in middle ground.


Frank O’Connor, barber of 14 years and currently of Cowshed Chicago, explains men are “really going tight on the side” and will pair it with a comb-over hard part. A gentlemen’s taper on the back is popular, and although rugged is on its way out, men are holding on to the beard.


Beard on bottom, short on top; this manicured look also takes to the liking of the jelly roll — think Danny Zuko from Grease. This style entails a longer top section where the segment of hair can be swirled into a loose roll and, instead of slicked back on the sides, buzzed. “1-0 on the side,” as O’Connor suggests in lingo.


And when it comes to product, where men’s options were lacking five years ago, now there is an abundance of choice with a thick pomade being barber preference, according to O’Connor.


Seems to me a man’s look in the making, whether deliciously by bun or jelly roll, is still best accompanied by an unattended scruff right now.


Groomed, trimmed, buzzed or not, pair the style on the scalp with a beard of any thickness and you’ll be good to go. Until your appointment at the barber shop, that is.
