HAVE YOU EVER SHOWN A PICTURE OF A CELEBRITY TO YOUR HAIRDRESSER AND THEN SAID “I WANT THIS PLEASE”? You may want to read this then. Seen WHIMN

The One Thing This Hairstylist Wants You To Know About Celebrity Inspo Pics

Nope, a pair of scissors can’t make you look like Kendall Jenner.

I don’t know about you, but if you took a quick peep at my phone’s camera roll, beyond the happy snaps and selfies, you’d find a deluge of #mood pics.

From the outfits I want to buy (or at least the ASOS version of them) to the sun loungers I want to lay on next time I book annual leave, I rarely open Instagram without finding a ‘screenshot and save’ worthy image.

You know what else you’d find? A lot of beauty looks. Like most women, I have ran into my hairdresser (either three days out from my period or after a bad breakup) clutching a picture of a celebrity and begged them to make me look ‘exactly like this.’

I’ve had the Lara Bingle bob. The Zoe Kravitz buzz cut. The Lily Collins fringe. I’ve had it all. But I’ve also had a pretty rational stylist tell me that no, I don’t look like Lara or Zoe or Lily – and a pair of scissors can only do so much.

“Hairdressers don’t want to burst your bubble and far from it,” explains hairstylist and owner of Sydney’s RAW Salon, Anthony Nader.

“But it’s our job to give you the insider secrets to how those Hollywood celebs look so damn paparazzi ready all the time.”

Aside from employing a full time stylist to tend to their strands, a lot of their length and fullness can be credited to wigs and hair pieces.

“I’ve lost count in my 30 year career how many women that have sat in my chair and have pulled out a picture of Beyoncé, Rihanna, Cardi B or Zoe Kravitz and stared me in the eyes point blank and said ‘I want this’ – I mean where do you start?”

Nader does admit, however, that while bringing in images is helpful for your hairdresser to get an idea of the result you’re after, your best bet is to cap it at no more than eight.

“In those eight images show them one or two things that you don’t like about that haircut or colour, too. This just helps more clarity on both sides.”

From there, your stylist will be able to work through the pros and cons of what’s achievable.

“If you’re after a blunt Kim Kardashian bob, is the length at the jaw going to suit your face shape? Maybe not, so this is where the hairdresser needs all that knowledge and experience that they have to give the best outcome for your face shape.”

The time you’ll realistically spend styling it each day, as well as your budget for salon visits are the next two biggest determining factors when considering a celeb inspired chop.

“To maintain a strong haircut shape, you need to get to the salon every four to six weeks. If you have your hair coloured, you’ll also need to maintain your colour by investing in salon prescribed products to keep it looking red carpet ready.”

Nader’s final words of wisdom?

“Just remember though, that your hairdresser isn’t a magician and can’t perform tricks.”

Oooooof, noted.

 

THE 90’s IS BACK IN FULL SWING AND HERE’S WHY. Seen WHIMN

This 90s Hairstyle Is Back To Give Every Millennial Major Nostalgia

 

First popularised by Leonardo DiCaprio and every single Backstreet Boys member (except maybe Howie) in the 90s, the chin-grazing, cropped bob has seen a revival of late.

Worn by the likes of Julianne Hough, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian, the style is back streets back, alright (sorry) – albeit with a middle parted update.

 

“A middle part will always give vibes of a cool girl, with attitude and a modern confidence,” says Anthony Nader of Sydney’s RAW Anthony Nader salon.

Before you march into your hairdressers clutching a picture of Nick Carter though, be aware you may need to alter the length an inch or so above or below your jawline, depending on your face shape.

“If for example your face is a little fuller around the jaw, you’ll need that length a little longer past the jawline, as this will give the illusion of an oval shape.”

Once you’ve had the chop, the trick to keep it from slipping into full blown boy band territory, Nader says, is to keep it super clean.

“Grunge may have been alive and kicking in the 90s, but you don’t want to look like you’ve been out on an all-nighter. This bob needs to look ‘innocent’ and by this I mean your hair needs to look clean and healthy with blunt ends. Start by shampooing your hair strands more often.”

Styling wise, volumising products are your middle part MVP and be sure to use a comb to get that part sitting poker straight – this isn’t the time for guesswork.

“Opt for volumising sprays as they’re lighter than a mousse or paste. Spray the roots with a dry shampoo to soak up any oil and sort limp and dirty roots in a flash.”

CELEBS’ EDGIEST HAIRSTYLES | COSMOPOLITAN.COM.AU

Kelly O’s latest dramatic ‘do inspired us to check out some other out-there hairstyles of the rich and famous.

Kelly Osbourne uploaded this snap of her new hair to Instagram a hot minute ago. She’s unofficially trademarked those lilac-tinted locks, discount but the edgy new cut, complete with shaved-in lines, is… kinda awesome. We spoke to international hairstylist and owner of RAW Salon Anthony Nader about what to consider before going in an extreme chop, and rounded up the best celeb #hairspiration.

Alice Dellal

Karl Lagerfeld’s muse Alice Dellal wasn’t satisfied with just a crazy dip-dye job. She was one of the first to pioneer the side shave (and it eventually became her trademark). “It may sound funny, but the size of your head plays a role here. If its too round or large this haircut wont do you any favours. Just trust me here, girls.” Wise words from Mr. Nader.

Agyness Deyn

Not big on long, flowing hair? Before British model Agyness Deyn went all ‘happily married Scientologist’ on us, she was the master of the man-style crop.

Cassie

Hip hop singer Cassie has been rocking the close-cut side shave for a while now, but over the weekend at Coachella she stepped out with some serious corn rows too. Anthony advises, “With this haircut, keep in mind that less is always more,” advises Anthony.

Charlize

Sean Penn’s current squeeze, Charlize Theron looks amazing with short hair and bounces between polished and punk like a pro. We wonder if she has shares in a hair gel? Something to consider pre-cut: “Face shape and facial features first and foremost. Think ‘Is this geometric shaped cut going to highlight the facial features that you don’t want to emphasize?’” If so, Anthony says STOP!

Natalie Dormer

Whoa! Remember the shock of seeing Game of Thrones hottie Natalie Dormer step on the SAG Awards red carpet with half her hair missing? Anthony warns that a look this extreme is something you may end up quickly regretting, but there are ways to deal. “Regret setting in? Down the track (in say 2-3 months), chop off the length at the back into a solid bob so you can start your way into a much easier style.”

Ginnifer Goodwin

Once Upon A Time actress Ginnifer Goodwin has owned the pixie for years, but we love seeing her toughen it up by faking a fringe and adding winged liner. And our expert hairstylist agrees, “Your makeup needs to change with your hair, so if you’re going edgy then put away that soft, pretty, pastel eyeshadow – helloooooooooooo flicks!”

Jennifer Lawrence

Time to fess up – we were totally devo when J-Law lopped all her hair off, but she’s proven her ability to #workit. Want to lose your lengths but aren’t quite sure how? Anthony recommends you go for a style which can easily be messed up and played with, a la Jen. “Ask your hairdresser to give you some ideas on the best way to get you to an edgier look over a couple of months.”

Miley Cyrus

These days, Miley’s crop is the least controversial thing about her. “If you want a shaved out panel on one side, keep it softer around the hairline and longer on one side,” says Anthony. Then who knows, you too may have this effect on people.

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman shaved her tresses off for her role in 2005?s V for Vendetta, then won a best actress award from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror films. #worthit. Anthony suggests you warm yourself up for a style like this with a side shave. “Once you’re cool with the side shave, if you decide to shave it all off you won’t leave the salon having heart palpitations.”

Rihanna

Riri rocked up to this year’s Fashion Week with… a mullet. Yep, WTF. But Anthony says the style might not be as scary as you think. “With those ‘snail trail lines’ cut into the sides, they really take no time at all to grow out and when they’re originally cut in can be quite soft looking where you don’t see too much scalp.”

Willow

No stranger to an edgy ‘do (even if she is only 13!), Willow Smith pulled off a shaved head and coloured hair like a proper punk. “There are little ways of cutting hair into different shapes that won’t scare you off from this quirky trend,” Anthony advises. Soooo… no need to dive straight in with the ‘Willow’ just yet. Test the waters first then colour, shave and shape away! (If you’re really that ballsy.)
