*Expertly* Hairnastic Styles for Fall

Depending on where you live, the signs of fall are all around. Leaves are beginning to fall and the wind is crisp.

This is the season of sleepy coffee shops, pumpkin patches, baking, and earth tones.

 

It also reminds us of the messy hair bun.  Its one of those hairstyles that has no rules and is open to interpretation (a.k.a, there really is no right way to put one of these together). The “messy” bun can be typically “messy,” or very clean-looking. You make up the rules here!

 

For hairstyles that are not “up,” wavy bob-cuts are also reminiscent of fall because of their high-fashion, yet care-free appeal.

Fall gives “artsy” vibes, particularly hairstyles with understated, yet very obvious innovative attributes – a much-desired creative quality.

An “expertly Hairnastic” fall hairstyle is one that is carefree, yet complex in its presentation. Its taking a familiar hairstyle and adding a new twist that makes onlookers say, “Hmm, I love it! I would never have thought to do that!”

Expertly Playing Up Your Natural Features

Although there is no one standard of beauty, look at enough fashion magazines and you will come away thinking that there are all sorts of things wrong with yourself. “My face is too narrow,” “My eyes are too big,” “My thighs are too large!” “My hair is too short”… for some of us, we’ve even made the statement “My hair is bad”… the list goes on! Truth be told, we are all artists, and sometimes, for those features that we feel make us so different, gaining confidence, gratitude, and boldness in possessing them is a matter of perspective.

The key, in our opinion, is to gain a healthy, loving, and accepting view of yourself — just as you are. Be thankful for you. Make a point to be especially thankful for what makes you different. Do this even if being thankful doesn’t come naturally. And then make the “HairNastic” choice to treat that thing that makes you different as a distinguished guest on the stage of your life. You get to “wine it” and “dine it” as you please.

What does this mean? Let’s bring it back with an example in the realm of hair. If your hair is too short, or “bad” as some think, a great challenge would be to find ways to wear it that highlight its shortness, or curliness, or thickness, etc. These are all personal choices to make as to whether or not you’ll play up those things that make you different. But one thing is often true in our world: what you consider to be a terrible natural faux pas that makes you different may just be something that someone else is praying to have. #fridaynightfoodforthought

Have you been in situations where something about you was different, and your natural instinct was to cover it up? Since HairNastics loves art and hair, how did you overcome your fear by “playing up” your difference and what was the result?

For those of us who perhaps see the type of hair that we have as a limitation, but would still like to be creative, check out this TED talk by a visual artist who had a diverse ability — and used this difference to create some awesome works of art. The talk is entitled “Embrace the Shake.

What’s your shampoo regimen and what should it be?

It depends. It depends on many things that are unique to every individual. A major factor that a shampoo being “the best” depends on is hair type. There are four main types of hair, according to Rebecca Joy Stanborough of healthline.com, and they are 1 straight, 2 wavy, 3 curly, and 4 coily. Reactions to shampoo can vary by hair type. Therefore, choosing the right shampoo can make all the difference! Marie Claire’s “The Best Shampoos and Conditioners, According to Our Editors” covers suggested types of shampoos for different types of hair!

Compelling Monday Thoughts on Hair

The key elements of professionalism, according to a 2014 article entitled, “Professionalism: An essential career skill” on CareerBuilder.com, are:

1. Accountability

2. Consideration

3. Humility

4. Communication

5. Tidiness

6. Kindness

7. Consistency

Most of these elements are things that appear to fall out of the realm of hair care. As long as you are showing accountability, consideration, humility, communication, kindness, and consistency, and as long as your hair is well-kempt, does hair style matter in the work place? What are your thoughts?
