Must Have Hair Trends in 2016

Friday, January 15th, 2016

Hair trends change from season to season, not to mention from year to year. For hair trends in 2016, you should expect some interesting changes in terms of hair styling, as well as some reminiscences from 2015. Dip-dye and highlights are still on, but not on any type of haircut. Top hairstylists foresee more and more haircuts that are suited for each type of hair texture.

2015 trends surviving in 2016
If you embraced a big hair change in 2015, you may well still be very fashionable in 2016, so you don’t need to worry. When it comes to colors, top hairstylists agree that dip-dye and baby highlights will still be popular hair trends in 2016.  Some don’t believe rainbow hair or sunset hair will be as appreciated as they were during the previous year. However, you can’t fail as long as the color of your hair compliments your skin color.
When it comes to haircuts and styles, bobs and natural kinky curly styles are still in, and so is the long, layered hair. Luckily, bob haircuts have survived during the past years and they will be more than appreciated during 2016 too. What changes is the way we style bobs. Hairstylists will try to work with every woman’s natural hair texture rather than changing it by using too many products and by applying too much heat.

Bringing the ‘20s in 2016
In case you weren’t already used to comebacks, here’s one! The Gatsby-inspired bob is back and it is ready to compliment women who want to highlight their cheekbones. Short bangs are included in this hairstyle and that’s a good thing. You’ll see many haircuts with statement bangs among the many hair trends in 2016, so you can adopt a bold attitude with yours.  Short bobs might sound like a huge commitment for those of you who have long hair, so think about your alternatives, such as wigs. You can keep your long hair for yourself while sporting a wig that breathes style and fashion. Here at De Novo Hair you can order a customized wig that will improve your image in 2016 without having to change the one from 2015.

Accessorizing hair more than in 2015
Accessorizing hair is not a new notion, but thanks to various accessory producers and the fabulous hair tattoos, it will be soon embraced by more and more women. 2016 will be the year during which women will go out and about with golden and sparkly things on their heads. Bold hair colors aren’t enough anymore, so the need of hair accessories is predicted to be one of the hair trends in 2016.

In conclusion, 2016 will bring haircuts suited for every hair texture, plenty of accessories to make you look even prettier and colors that will nicely blend in. Remember that if you aren’t ready for a big change, you can always experiment with a wig made of natural hair. This kind of wig looks and feels natural, so it is simply perfect for anyone!

Protect Your Hair When Wearing Weaves

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

Sew-in extensions or weaves are considered a great way of protecting your natural hair while displaying a variety of looks. However, there are a few things you should know before getting your installment. Among the factors that may actually damage your natural hair are an exceeding number of extensions, improper maintenance and faulty aftercare. Before you conclude that weaves can do a lot of damage to your natural hair instead of protecting it, make sure you do your part during the installation and after to truly make weaves protective and worth the time and expense. Weave Care

Limit the number of extensions
Choosing the ideal amount of hair is the first step in opting for a protective sew-in technique. Too much hair can mean too much pressure on your scalp from the weight of the extra hair. The last thing you want to do is to make your weave uncomfortable and damage your natural hair and scalp because you have too many extensions installed. Also, think about how tightly the braids are done. Tight braids lead to headaches, excessive shedding and scalp damage. So, opt for looser braids and a sufficient amount of hair extensions.

Maintain your weaves properly
When your extensions are installed, you should leave your hair alone for a few days. Your hair should be washed and deeply conditioned prior to the weave installation, so washing and conditioning immediately after an install may loosen the install prematurely. In order to maintain your hair and scalp while wearing weaves, you can prepare a special mixture of essential oils and water to spritz on every now and then. Combining the mixture in a diffuser bottle will make application to the hair and scalp easier. Lots of different DIY moisture combo recipes can be found online and many brands are offering already made moisture boots as well.

Emphasize on the aftercare
Depending on your hair type, you can keep sew in weaves for 4 to 6 weeks before having to remove them. In case your hair is thin, you should schedule an appointment after 4 weeks. A medium to thick type of hair can usually sustain the weaves for 6 weeks or more, depending on hair growth rate. Even so, you shouldn’t keep them in for very long because you can’t avoid product buildup that’s going to settle between the braids. Washing your natural hair is the first thing you should do after extension removal. Next, you should use coconut oil and other deeply moisturizing hair masks to infuse as much moisture to your hair as possible. Try not to rush the process and leave the hair treatment in for a longer period of time. Your stylist will probably recommend a deep conditioner- don’t skip this step. Follow these 3 main tips for weave care and you’ll have more success with hair care and hair growth.

Special Care for Your 100% Natural Lace Wigs

Saturday, August 8th, 2015

natural lace wigs The reason why 100% natural lace wigs are the best choice is already clear, but the fact that they need special care might seem intimidating to some. Indeed, synthetic wigs don’t need styling and they are easy to wash just by putting them in cold water mixed with a special solution. However, natural lace wigs can be much more rewarding because of the efforts you make in maintaining its beauty and the versatility in styling.
If you own a natural lace wig, then you know that the hairstyles won’t last very long without proper care. Just like naturally growing hair, the hair used to make our lace wigs may become oily, dry or and go flat. This happens because although the hair is all natural, it was cut from the roots that were feeding it with nutrients in order to regenerate it and keep it moisturized. So, the need of washing your natural lace wig for an infusion of moisture is imperative. Whenever you feel that your wig is full of hairspray, wax or any other styling products that you might use, it will need to be cleaned.

Washing your all natural lace wigs

Before you wash your wig, you must comb the hair carefully. Using a wide tooth comb rather than a brush is pertinent for preventing unnecessary shedding. If you skip this step, you might have to deal with even larger portions of tangled hair afterwards, and therefore, an increase in shedding.
Next, you can fill the sink or a bowl that’s big enough with warm water. The reason why lace wigs need to be washed with warm water is because the pores of natural hair open in contact with heat sources and close in contact with cold water or cold air. Washing with the wrong temperature can cause the hair to be dry or tangle more. The hair products used can also impact the softness and manageability of your natural lace wigs. You can choose from a wide range of products that are especially meant to be used for wigs. When in a pinch and you have to wash your unit and don’t have any special wig shampoo, you can use a highly moisturizing regular shampoo.
The third step that you should take after cleaning your natural lace wig is to apply a conditioner. There are plenty revitalizing conditioners in our store and that are available in your local markets that can moisturize your wig well. Opt for non-static products if you notice that there’s a tendency of electrification when you comb the hair. Then, rinse the wig’s hair with warm water. You should expect some hair shedding with continued use and washing of your natural lace wigs, so we recommend that you do not overdo it with washing. You should wash the hair when necessary but daily washing is certainly not recommended.
It is important to towel or air dry your natural lace wigs. Hand squeeze any extra water and then place the wig in a towel to soak up any extra water. If you have a curly hair unit, it is recommended that you do not use a towel! This can cause extra frizz and dryness. For curly units, hand squeeze out the extra water, apply your favorite curl defining product and then let the wig air dry. Ideally, you should let your natural lace wigs air dry on a wig stand and style it after it is dry. Flat irons or curling irons are permitted with natural hair and you can also use heat protectants before you begin the styling process of your wig. De Novo Hair is also resourceful when it comes to styling products, as well as wig stands that make your work much easier.

Long Hair Preferred for 2015 Trends in Hairstyle

Sunday, July 12th, 2015

Things are pretty clear when it comes to this year’s trends in hairstyles. Long hair is preferred by all major fashion houses. Boho curls, pony tails and ballerina buns are very popular this season. As for colors, the stars of 2015 are light blonde, shades of honey and champagne. This might not be such good news for those of you who do not have long hair or blonde hair, but fortunately you can always opt for a lace wig if you wanted to jump into the trends. De Novo Hair is resourceful in this regard, offering long and really long lace wigs available in precision cuts, straight & uncut and in curly & wavy styles.  All of our styles are also available in bulk packs and wefts which are used for weaves. Since our lace wigs are made of human hair and look incredibly natural, there’s no reason for you not to have long hair this year if you desire!

Styling options for long hair in 2015

This year’s fashion shows were amazing not just because of the beautiful models or the clothes they were wearing, but also thanks to the hairstyling aspect. The ponytail is reminiscent from last season and it looks definitely messier than last year. Oscar de la Renta had a few models that walked the spring shows sporting ponytails caught at the base of their necks. However, the ponytails were diversified, adding individuality to every model. In addition, Aquilano Rimondi opted for Boho curls, which are characterized by subtleness, being barely perceptive. This hairstyle is related to Bohemian concepts that promote freedom. Interestingly, Ralph Lauren chose models with long and straight hair, as well as Tommy Hilfiger. This look is not at all easy to obtain with shorter locks, but wigs and weaves can transform your look quickly! As for the ballerina buns, they are elegant and look sophisticated. Aigner promoted these types of buns earlier this spring. The secret is not to add the well-known wet look to these buns, but to capture a soft and feminine look.

Coloring options for long hair in 2015

When it comes to trendy hair colors in 2015, the key element is light. The chosen colors are pure and of a graphic simplicity that seems to absorb light. The recommended shades are arranged in layers, so they are gradually revealed. If platinum blonde was last winter’s color, hairstylists now rely on softer shades, such as golden blonde or caramel blonde. This might be another problem in case you want to obtain a very fashionable look in terms of hairstyle and color. Not many of us have natural blonde hair, so going from black, dark brown, or red to blonde may be a challenge. On the bright side, you have the alternative of purchasing a lace wig or weave extensions that meets all the above criteria. When blonde is no longer a star color, you can even dye the wig’s hair in any shade you please! Wearing a wig is no longer unconventional especially since so many celebrities wear one daily.
