Hair Bows

There are so many different kinds of ribbons being used in making hair bows. Here are just a few: grosgrain, organza, single faced satin, double faced satin, acetate, jacquards, velvet, sequin, ruffle, lace, marabou, frayed denim, sheers, metallic, polka dots, stripes, patterned, textured, stitched, printed, reversible, woven, checkered, plaids, glitter, gathered, frayed, and the list could go on I am sure. We haven’t even talked about all of the extra things you can add to hair bows like appliqués, hand-painted ceramics, jewels, crystals, monograms initials, names, rickrack, buttons, and so many other things that people get creative with. Read all about how they make them and see if they put a lot of time and effort into making them in a boutique style and boutique quality.

There are so many hair bows web sites and eBay auctions now, that it is hard to find that one hair bow you are looking for, and for the right price. Don’t be afraid to try out a few different places, and try ordering just one hair bow from a few different places before you settle down on your favorite hair bow maker. Also, don’t be afraid to ask the maker questions about their hair bows. I would also encourage you to try different sizes as well. Just because your girl is little, doesn’t mean she won’t look just like a little princess in with larger hair bows. If she looks cute in pig tails or two pony tails, try getting two small hair bows or two medium sized hair bows. Read what the widths are on each site because what one company may call small another would call medium.

Affordable Holiday Style

Shopping and dressing for events are often contributors to holiday stress and debt. It’s not necessary to purchase a complete outfit. Here are some affordable options.

  • Wear a glittery illusion, multi-strand or y-shaped necklace. There are many options; rhinestones, beads, cubic zirconia, swarovski crystals.
  • Pull out those dressy shoes you bought but never wore yet. You can always change into practical flats later if they’re a little high.
  • Brighten a conservative, dark suit with a brightly-colored, dressy top or camisole to stand out. Just make sure it complements your coloring.
  • Not ready for bright colors? Try a lacey top with long bell-shaped sleeves instead.
  • Carry a beautiful, embroidered and/or beaded clutch.
  • Buy a faux (or real if you prefer) fur collar to dress up your coat. Have your local cleaners or tailor add the buttons and loops to make it detachable if you’re not comfortable doing it yourself.
  • Pile on the bangles or charms. This is a nice party look – where the noise would not be an issue.
  • If you’re not comfortable with the noise, wrap a long strand of beads around your wrist instead. It still is a dramatic look without the noise.
  • Heap on beaded necklaces or sport a multi-strand belt for an exotic look.
  • Pair tuxedo pants with a silky tie belt and a tucked-in camisole, worn alone or under a nice top.
  • Top off your outfit with a dressy shawl in velvet, silk or lace.
  • Have a nice, defined waistline? Try punching up a simple, full-skirted dress with a corset-style belt or tuxedo sash.
  • Dress up a tweed bag with a cluster of brooches.

 

About Layered Hair Styles

Layered hairstyles are now one of the most popular hairstyles around. This hair style works the best on long, straight hair. This is because very coarse and curly hair doesn’t let itself to fall into layers. After getting a layered hair cut, it is possible to accentuate the hair layer using highlights. This can also be used to flatten your face shape. The layered hair style tends to suit those girls whose hair is straight or slightly wavy and also gives thin hair a thicker and shinier look. Nowadays, a substance called Hydroderm is also available in the market. This is what many people use by allowing the collagen to be delivered to the third layer of the epidermis to make the layered hair style look even better! It is not actually that much advised to use on the hair, but since it is one thing most actresses use to accentuate their layered hair style, it has definitely come here to stay!

The reason “layered hairstyle” has such a name is because only the perimeter of the hair along the face is cut. Then after this, with the given cut, the hair falls in layers, thus the reason for the name. The first layer usually starts below eye level, and then is appropriately paced out to the length of the air length. In the case of a layered hair cut, even a razor is used at times. This is because it gives the hair cut a softness effect. The shape of the hair at the back can be either the standard U or straight. And for more definition, long bangs can be given to this hair cut!

Cowboy Boots

At that time, the Wellington had a low cut heel that was calf high. It was quickly adopted by the Texans who gave their own western interpretation to this footwear – hence, the western cowboy boot. Today, the Western cowboy boot is a staple in fashion all the world over.

In 1954, the western boot changed to keep in stride with the growing popularity of the rodeo. A lower heel and rounder toe was necessary to accommodate the wear and tear competitors required to compete. By the 70’s television and theater influenced the western boot “look” and style and fashion trends took hold. Some have high heels and pointed toes, while others stick with tradition and have a lower heel and a rounded toe for the true cowboy.

Custom-made western cowboy boots take about 45 hours to make. These hours of labor are reflected in the price of a pair of western boots, because prices can be steep. Colors range from traditional browns and blacks to red, blue and gray. Decorations include the toe wrinkle and stitch lines across the toe top seem to be popular additions. There are different types of the western boot including the Roper that has a shorter shaft, rounded toe and straight, low heel. The Packer is a high boot with laces and the Lacer is, in fact, a lace up.
