What Hollywood Teaches Us About Hairstyles For Round Face Shapes

Have you ever attempted a hairstyle as seen on a celeb, only to be disappointed with the end results? Whether you know it or not, your face shape would have had something to do with it. The texture of your hair would have been a likely factor as well. It’s why we suggest choosing cuts and shades that suit your hair type, skin tone and face shape. For those with a round face, it can be tough to pick the right styles… until now. From embracing mulberry coloured hair to adding a fringe and even saying no to layers, Hollywood often teaches us how to approach more rounded face shapes. Before we get started, it’s important to discuss why this shape is tricky to begin with. For starters, those with a round face usually want to hide or reduce the appearance of their cheeks. We’re not quite sure why though, seeing as a fuller face creates a more youthful appearance. As a result of this preference, the styles that tend to suit this shape are those that are straight and sleek. Be warned, this doesn’t include looks that appear flat or stuck to your face. This won’t do you any justice at all. Now that that’s out of the way, here are a few hair lessons we’ve learned from Hollywood regarding a round face shape. Try new shades. We must admit, this one isn’t only for those with a rounded face. It’s for anyone who wants to change up their look and enhance their face shape. An interesting colour can add new dimensions to your facial features. Take this...
Tips to make your black hair colour last

Tips to make your black hair colour last

There’s nothing worse than hair colour that fades. You deserve to look and feel your best no matter the season. Whether you’re a fan of jet black hair or even black hair with highlights, you’ll want to keep your tresses in top condition. When you love your hair, it loves you right back. Why not keep your dark colour looking fresh and fabulous with the help of these top tips? It’s your time to shine Tip 1: Make sure your hair is in good condition Starting with a good base is the key to making sure that your hair dye holds well. If you’ve been in a cycle of colouring and heat styling your hair, you might want to take a break before choosing your next shade. To help tide you over whilst you wait for your hair to recuperate, a healthy trim will speed up the process and banish any split ends. Tip 2: Choose your hair dye wisely Not all hair dyes were created equal. We suggest reading the packaging and seeing what ingredients each one contains. Choosing an ammonia-free formulation like Renew Intense Naturals will also lessen the damage factor often associated with hair colour. With the added benefit of Milk and Aloe Protein Conditioner, all Renew shades help lock in moisture for colour that really shines. Tip 3: Once coloured, skip the washing for three days Leaving your new black hair colour to settle for 72 hours is a must for extending its lifespan. This is because dye can seep out of your hair if it is washed too soon after colouring. As a result,...
What’s killing your hair colour?

What’s killing your hair colour?

Whether you’ve got cherry crush hair colour or prefer a shade of cappuccino, there are certain things that can leave your hair colour a little lacklustre. Even if they’re not intentional habits, they can still do a fair amount of damage to your hair vibrancy. Are you guilty of any of these? If you are, it’s not too late to change things. Sacrificing your hair to the heat gods. Eeeeek. We know how it is. Those fly-aways aren’t going to tame themselves without intervention. Believe it or not, that flat iron you swear by and your go-to hair dryer are taking your colour from fab to drab. Even if you aren’t rocking a bold statement like cherry crush hair, heat can really wreak havoc with your colour. If you can’t go cold turkey, maybe alternate between days of the week where you do and don’t use heat to style your hair. The good news is, natural is in so if you’ve got insane curls, waves and textures, now is the time to embrace it. Your hair will definitely love you for it. Lathering up far too often.   Fight the urge to over-wash. How many times a week do you wash your hair? We’ve heard some people say that due to hitting the gym, they’re lathering up every single day. If this is you, now’s the time to stop. Not only does excessive hair washing strip your scalp of vital nutrients, but it also tones down your colour in a major way. This is especially true if you’re using anti-dandruff shampoos. The recommended number of times that you should...
Beat that summer frizz with these tips

Beat that summer frizz with these tips

Whether you choose blonde, black, brunette or red hair dye, summer frizz is a major hair problem and something you might need to contend with during summer. As temperatures rise and humidity starts to climb, your hair starts to take a beating. Whilst hair colour trends for 2018 are important, hair care tips are too. It’s why we’ve put together our list of tips for fighting that summertime fuzz. No matter your chosen hair colour ideas, here are the ways that you can avoid that dreaded f-word. For starters, we suggest rinsing with cold water whenever you wash your hair. Not only is this nice and cooling on warmer days but it helps seal the hair cuticle. This will prevent any frizzing and enhance the shine that we’re all after. If you’re a fan of red hair dye like our Wild Fire Renew Perfect Colour, rinsing your hair with carbonated water (soda water) will also help. This is because red hair has a tendency to give into humidity worse than other shades. The low pH level of the soda water will help beat fuzzy hair. Hooray! Using conditioner regularly will help you lock in that necessary moisture. Most of the time, hair can get static because it is dry and lacking in the hydration department. By using a conditioner when you shampoo, you can help add extra nourishment that your tresses really need. Using one with added protein will also benefit in the strength and shine department. Every pack of Renew hair dye come with Aloe and Milk Protein Conditioner to help you lock in added nourishment and your...
