This usually involves choosing the right dress and planning for the day itself.

The past few weeks saw Hollywood celebrities sporting new hairdos in time for the fall season. From Olivia Palermo to Lily Collins, new celebrity hairstyles are definitely something to glean inspiration from for your next salon appointment. Here are the dominating hairstyle trends seen among stars, which you can recreate with the help of savvy hair salons. Effortless Waves Say goodbye to overly-done waves—today’s loose and barely-there waves are the modern way of giving your hair the illusion of movement. Think of morning-after hair, one that’s slightly off-center and delicately unkempt, then topped with tousled waves and you’ll get the picture. This look perfectly complements layered clothes and fall textures.

Nowadays, makeup contouring has made scores of women believe that it’s the best way to accentuate your facial features. If you’re one with them, aren’t you forgetting something? According to celebrity stylist John Frieda, you might. He believes that no amount of makeup contouring can beat the framing effect of a perfect haircut, and he also adds that it might be the one thing keeping you from a lower-maintenance beauty routine. Women typically have access to a greater variety of hairstyles than men, though experts agree that one universal rule applies: you’re better off picking a ‘do that suits your face shape the best. So before trooping to various hair salons in or around the Northampton, MA area, be sure to know which specific hairstyles complement your facial features.

Summer isn’t the only worst time of the year for your hair, for even the monsoon season can seriously mess with your locks. Most women hate going out in the rain because these make their hair look frizzy and rough. Both seasons also cause your hair to become sweaty, which could often lead to scalp infections that may consequently cause hair fall. Now that thunderstorms and strong winds are raging throughout many places, including Massachusetts, opt for hairstyles that let your hair down but controlled. Take some time to set your hair in a way that it wouldn’t get frizzy and unruly in the rain so you can remain looking fabulous, whatever the weather. While some ‘dos can be achieved easily at the comfort of your own home, these monsoon-ready hairstyles are created more skillfully by popular hair salons.

Although there are a number of women who are carrying out hair treatments on their own, take your time to decide if you can and should do the same. You may not be prepared for the possible consequences if things go wrong (as you’re not a trained hair stylist). Take note of these four important things that hair salons want you to know about the hair bleaching process.

Having hair makeovers is beneficial to women every now and then. What puts hair at risk of damage is when styling becomes more frequent, along with excessive use of hair products. Exposing your hair to too much chemical treatments will cause forms of breakage like dry scalp or brittle strands, especially if you have unhealthy hair in the first place. Unfortunately, most women continue to have their hair done even with damaged fringes. Over the counter hair products may also have chemical substances that can damage the hair, especially if not properly used. Run a quick patch test on your skin for about two days or at least 48 hours first. When any rash or skin irritation appears, look for other brands.
