Have You Seen The InStyler?

Posted by Hiz And Herz Hair Salon And Mini Spa on April 11, 2009 at 11:04 PM Comments comments (0)
One of my clients came to me with this question below, so I took it upon myself to do a little research and find out what others that have tried this product had to say:
Infomercials are incredibly entertaining at times, and this one especially caught my eye over the weekend. The Instyler is a flat iron/curling iron combo that is supposed to straighten, curl, add volume and flip your hair in any direction. Now I've seen contraptions that claim to do the same before, but The Instyler has an actual celebrity (even if she is a minor one!) in their commercial, so maybe we can trust that it works?

Because my own hair is rather thick and wavy, I'm thinking of taking the plunge and trying The Instyler for myself. With bristles, it gently pulls hair straight, following up with heat to create a sleek, smooth head of hair. If any of you have experience with The Instyler, let 15 Minute Fashion know! Cutting down the time I spend styling my hair is something I want; wasting my money on a product full of empty promises isn't!

Get tons of tips and tricks for Hair in a Hurry!

Here Are A Few Reviews Below...

Mrs Smith says:

I ordered this product? when you are checking out you are offered the professional rapid heat version for extra money which I ordered. As far as heat, it gets hot alright, but it is raw metal and I have gotten used to ceramic/non hair burning instruments - and won't be going back. I really tried using it but the rolling cylinder is really ackward. I can do much better with my 1 inch wide ceramic coated flat iron with a flick of my wrist. Also you know how flat irons and curling irons have tips that you can hold onto to help you use them? Well the instyler metal is fully exposed so you have to be very careful when using it with one hand to keep from burning yourself? it is too complicated to use. I give it a 4 out of 10.

Carolyn says:

Thanks Mrs Smith for the review! I was interested after seeing the commercial, but your review has helped me to change my mind. Appreciate that.

Elyzabeth says:

Not to disagree with Mrs. Smith, but I bought the InStyler because my hair is thin and fine and it promised to make hair like mine fuller. Honestly, I'll try just about anything that looks like it will help my hair. Yes, it was hot to the touch and took some time to figure out how to work it, but once I practiced with it, I really loved it. It gives me gorgeous hair. My daughter has thicker hair in a layered cut and she loves it, too, so we both give it a thumbs-up. We would recommend it.

Charlotte says:

Thanks Elyzabeth for your review!
I just ordered my instyler and now im patiently waiting for it. I?ve heard a good number of reviews here and there about the instyler and they all fall along the lines of what Elyzabeth said.

Carolyn don't be discouraged by one review, any new product takes getting used to. give it try and you might get a different outlook from Mrs Smith. And im not saying Mrs Smith?s review is wrong, all im saying don't shut something down completely because of 1 review

Mrs. Smith (again) says:

Another thing. The cranky churning sound it makes while rotating is annoying, and if you are not careful keeping your hair in the middle of the barrel - the tiny groove between the tip and the barrel will catch strands of hair that will wrap around until breaking. Just be careful - this was too much work and too much to think about in doing hair. We want uncomplication. So long story short - I returned them both and get this? as soon as I called the company to get my mandatory authorization return number the rep asked me to try it a little longer to get the hang of it and when I said oh no thank you, she asked me can she offer me a discount! So be ready? (you also have to pay a restocking charge when you return it) Wait awhile until a lot of people buy it and come online to give there opinion. Then you?ll have to weigh the pros and cons because it?s not easy figuring out which comments are actually legit versus the comments from the company?s ownership who has a stocked warehouse and a vested interest in making sure this product gets sold.


fashion says:

Does anyone know how long this product has been out, I've only seen the commercial a few times (a.k.a. I want to make sure it's sticking around before I take the plunge and order).

Sally says:

I, too, just recently saw the Instyler. I like the idea of a brush. That's why I bought the Maxiglide, but I found it too bulky to use. Also, the teeth on the plate pulled my hair. I have a Chi, but I?m still looking for the one that will be easy on my hair and easy to use.

Charlotte says:

Sally, i too have a chi but still looking for the one. the chi is good but its not as good as when i first got it

I'm hoping the instyler will live up to its promise. the science behind it makes sense that why i ordered it. It was shipped out 3 days ago so i should be receiving it soon

I will make sure to post a detailed review here for everyone. i wont leave anything out.

Becky says:

Well, if you decided to keep the product it will end up costing you $135! Although I have never used the product, it is hard for me to believe it is worth so much?.especially if it isn't ceramic.

Nell says:

I love my Instyler! My naturally coarse and slightly wiry hair is smooth and shiny with just one pass. Flat irons made my hair too FLAT but the Instyler rounds it beautifully.

DLR says:

I?ve seen that commercial too, and was interested in the product, but the price shown on telly $14.98 is only to TRY it, not to BUY it. I'm leery about that. How much does it cost if you decide to keep it.



Trendy Haircuts 2009 ~ How different factors Influence Our Style

Posted by Hiz And Herz Hair Salon And Mini Spa on November 1, 2008 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (0)

  Singer Pink did it with her homonymous crop, and two years later Victoria Beckham and her fringy Bob: Stars set trends, and hair styling is not exempted from that fact. Main purpose, however, of celebrities? haircut and fashion styles is to express uniqueness and individualism. They hardly ever are aware that they have such an influence on common taste.

  Band member Bill Kaulitz, for example, who is the leading vocalist of Tokio Hotel, created the most newsworthy trend for men and women during this year. Many young people tried to counterfeit him and asked their hairdressers to recreate his look with the painted, fringy streak that they loved. But his fans? ambitions were bitterly crestfallen when Bill, all of a sudden, had his appearance change.

  How could this happen? One reason is that celebrities are rich enough to assign the best designers and coiffeurs ? who gain popularity themselves by the creation of new trends. But most of all it is the constant presence of stars in magazines and on TV that makes John Doe aspire to resemble them. The easiest way to do so is changing one?s own hair, and eager barbers press ahead with the desired shifts.

  Hair has always served men to beautify and to express themselves. It constitutes the only part of the human body that can simply and variedly be reframed and, therefore, is of the utmost significance to everyone. Being aware of modern and up-to-date men haircuts is especially advantageous these days since many factors contribute to the choice of someone?s style.

  A good example of how those factors work is the notorious hippie haircut the heyday of which was forty years ago. Both barbers and designers have predicted it an immediate comeback - because the ?war and peace? topic keeps popping up in the media world. So incited to seek recognition, too, freedom-loving people consider the casual style as hip. British model Kate Moss is one of the popular representatives of that kind.

  Also considered a current trend is the easy-to-handle crop. Implicating a sportive ease, it may be the appropriate choice in view of this year?s European Soccer Championship and Olympic Games. But lively ?kicks? can also be achieved by slightly changing a former style: Since many people want to be ?in? and remain true to themselves at the same time, setting a fresh course to their preferred look can fulfil this conflicting demand. The famous Mod-Bod, for example, worn by every other woman during the thirties of last century, has regained quite some popularity. Competent barbers use playful fringes and wavy strands to streamline its otherwise old-fashioned look like other great looking short haircuts.

  Certainly, 2009 will be a trendy year, the more so as various music preferences and attitudes towards life leave their marks on people?s haircuts, too. The current range of bands and races is likely to coin new headdress styles. Even colour is placed more emphasis on: Hairdressers claim that dye experiments will play a great role during the coming years. ?Both men and women want to turn away from their everyday lives by bringing colour to the boredom that is theirs.? ? This sentence is often heard from coiffeurs who are looking forward to create new trends themselves.

  And in our section about trendy hair you find all cuts that are announced this year. There is a random and colourful selection of long- and short-hair styles, and International claims of haircuts for spring, summer, autumn and winter alike. Just click on link below and check out the selection of  pictures.

7 Ways To Remeber Anybody's Name!

Posted by Hiz And Herz Hair Salon And Mini Spa on October 23, 2008 at 8:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Seven Ways to Remember Any Name

Name tag (Getty Images) Our name is one of those hard-wired words in our subconscious (like ?free?) that has the intrinsic trigger to get our attention. You are more likely to react and respond to the sound of your name than say the word ?apple.?

The ability to remember people?s names is an incredibly useful skill in business and social interactions. Do you remember how impressed or surprised you were the last time someone remembered your name? I still get impressed, and I tend to remember these people in an especially warm and friendly light.

I often fall victim to the embarrassment of not remembering names of people who approach me with, ?Hi Tina, how are you?? I would panic, thinking, ?Oh crap! What?s her name again??

So in order to help myself remember names, I have developed the following techniques. I?ve used each one extensively and they have proven to be effective in my experience.

1. Trust Yourself
Many of us believe that we are horrible at names and we are very proud of this fact by telling other people about it. By relying on this story we?ve created, we instantly forget people?s names the moment we hear it, without even trying, because we are ?horrible at names.? I have been guilty of this. So, stop telling people that you are bad at names. You are not bad at names; you just have not implemented a system that worked for you yet. Tell yourself, ?I am fantastic at remembering names! And I?m going to start practicing now.?

2. Seeing Faces
If you know another person with the same name, try the following:

a) See that person?s face in your imagination.
b) Now, see the person?s face bounce up and down.
c) Now, see the new person?s face, bouncing up and down beside the first face.
d) Repeat steps a) and b) several times.

3. Using Sound Tricks
If you do not know another person with this same, try the following mnemonics using sound:

a) Repeat their names several times in your head, while noting the following:

  • Exaggerate the sounds. Prolong the syllables. For example, ?Teee-Naaa!? The funnier, funkier, and more disturbing, the better.
  • Try chunking which is breaking the name into several distinguishable parts or words.

b) Associate parts of a name with words you?re already familiar with and can easily pronounce. For example, ?Ramesh? equals mesh, mash.

c) For foreign, long, or unusual names, create a story. Make the story highly visual, especially great if the story sounds silly and makes you laugh. For example, ?Bengodi? could be ?Ben Affleck is going to become a deejay.?

4. Hear the Sounds Repeated
Look into their eyes while being introduced, and repeat their name several times out aloud. I like to ask questions after being introduced. Doing so gives me additional time and opportunity to practice their names on the spot:

  • ?Did I pronounce it correctly??
  • ?How do you pronounce that??
  • ?Could you repeat it??

I would repeat it several times after they answer the question, and check with them that I have the correct pronunciation. Again, this technique gives me an excuse to practice his or her name, and also ensures that I?m pronouncing it right.

5. See the Spelling Visually
Practice seeing each letter clearly in your mind. Sound out each letter as you see them. Repeat the process of seeing and hearing each letter in sequence. For example, ?Tyler? would be ?Tee, Y, L, E, R, Tyler!?

Two tips for this technique:
a) Clarify spelling. Ask, ?How do you spell that?? This gives extra time and chance to practice the technique. Make sure to repeat the letters back to the person (and see the letters as you say it). Don?t worry about sounding or looking silly. If you are genuine about learning someone?s name, he or she will appreciate it.

b) Dancing letters. As you pass through each letter, see it move a little. It could be shaking, bouncing, wobbling in its place. This will help your mind to remain the memory.

6. Writing It Down
It is always useful to have some scrap paper and pen with you. Better yet, use your notebook if you carry one. When the person is not looking or when you are in the bathroom, quickly jot down the names or sounds of names.

  • Write a one-liner description beside the name.
  • At conferences, I will have a page in my notebook dedicated to names. After meeting someone new, I would write it down in this page, along with a quick distinct reminder about that person. For example, ?John, the real estate guy from Portland,? or ?Zoe, the Myspace programmer.?

I like dumping names on paper or in a record (Item 6 below). Using this technique, I don?t need to carry it around in my mind and be constantly reminding myself of it.

7. Keeping Records
Keep a file on your computer, or even better yet, use google docs (virtual word documents). Call it ?The Name Record? or TNR.

I use this to record names of people who I may meet again. I use this to record names of people from my building (as I meet them) and for anyone I meet at any gathering. When writing down a name, it is important to associate the name with a memorable fact or story. For example, ?Unit 406?Manik, Indian guy, very nice, thirty-years-old, works at Boeing,? or ?Derek?friend of Josh, music director, they went to same college, big eyes, sarcastic.?

Try using these techniques one at a time. Practice, and when you feel comfortable, try another. Believe in yourself; the more you want to remember a name, the easier it will come.

*Discovering The Best Hairstyle For Your Face Shape*

Forget about what fashion magazines say about what kind of trendy hairstyle you should have, your face shape is truly what determines your most flattering hairstyles.

Determining Your Face Shape

When it comes to getting great hair, don't look any further than your own mirror. Whether you're a "heart," "round," or "oval," your best cut is determined by your face. Every one's face is different and it's important to understand that every hairstyle is not for every face shape. To accentuate balance and beauty, strive for a hairstyle that works with your particular face shape. That strategy will not only give you your best look, but also emphasize your best features. Be sure to bring this up with your stylist and make it an important determination in your new look.

The Answer's in the Mirror

Figure out your face shape within a well-lit mirror while by pulling hair back into a tight, structure-revealing ponytail. Look at the outline of your face, the size and shape of your forehead as it compares to your cheeks and chin. Then using a dry bar of soap and trace the outline of your face directly onto the mirror. Now, stand back and analyze the outline you created to exactly determine your true face shape from the options listed below.

Complimenting Your Face Shape

There are basically five main face shape categories to consider:
*Round Face Shape
*Oval Face Shape
*Long Face Shape
    *Square Face Shape
   *Heart Face Shape

Whichever face shape you fall into, there is a hairstyle that will work for you. Whether your hair is curly, straight or somewhere in between, the right cut and volumizing techniques will complement your face and features.

*Round Face Shape*

If your face shape is: Round -- full with round chin and hairline
* DOs: Add volume to the top of head to slim.
* DON'TS: Stay away from a spiky and short topside. Avoid width or volume on sides.
* NOTE: Although many women describe their faces as round, this is in fact the rarest face shape. It is often just your hairstyle that makes your face appear round. The key to de-emphasizing roundness is to keep your hair off your face. This will open your cheekbones, jaw and eyes. You can wear your hair either long or short, just be sure to have a few layers that you can use to create some volume on top of your head. This will make your face appear longer and slimmer. Try using a round brush and blow-drying your hair on a low speed so you can build body slowly as you dry. Blow-drying with your head upside down is also a great way to create volume. Make sure your hair isn't too full on the sides though. This will only accentuate the round shape you're trying to downplay.

*Square Face Shape*

If your face shape is: Square -- with strong jawline and hairline
* DOs: Take the edge off with a softening style featuring a side part and length at nape of neck.
* DON'TS: Don't center-part hair or cut square, straight bangs. Avoid geometric lines.
* NOTES: If you have a square face, don't cut your hair too short. You want to keep length in the back. You can also do a few bangs, but they should be soft and wispy, not straight across. To foster the illusion of a rounder face, create volume on the top and the sides. I recommend blow-drying your hair upside down, always on a low speed. Velcro rollers are also an easy and effective way to create soft, bouncy waves that help soften a square, angular face.

*Oval Face Shape*

If your face shape is: Oval -- jawline narrower than temples, rounded hairline
* DOs: Add volume to the top of head to slim.
* DON'TS: Stay away from a spiky and short topside. Avoid width or volume on sides.
* NOTES: If you have an oval face, many styles can work for you. You can go either short or long, but keep your hair mostly all one length. Too many layers can create a lot of volume. Many women with oval faces also have small faces and high-volume hair can be overwhelming. Long, wispy bangs are generally very flattering if you have an oval face shape. 

* Long Face Shape*

If your face shape is: Long -- narrow jawline and hairline
* DOs: Layer it on for fullness on sides.
* DON'TS: Skip short cuts, jaw-length bobs, or styles that add height on top.
* NOTES: The one haircut you should avoid if you have a long face is a bob. A short, blunt cut, especially where the hair comes to the corner of your mouth, will accentuate the length of your face, particularly in the chin area. You should also avoid short bangs and volume on top. Instead, create volume on the sides. The best way to achieve this look is either to blow-dry on a low speed with a round brush or use large Velcro rollers around your face. Velcro rollers can be used after your hair is dry. Just heat them up with your hair dryer and let them cool for about 15 minutes. Also, try to keep your hair off your face as much as possible. This will open up your features and make your face appear fuller. 

*Heart Face Shape*

If your face shape is: Heart -- wide temples and hairline, narrowing at chin
* DOs: Try bangs and a length that frames the jawline, adding width.
* DON'TS: Don't go too short at the nape of the neck.

*10 Signs You Need A Hair Makeover*

Your hair has no volume.

The top is flat, the sides are bulky, and it no longer frames your features. "If your hair just sits there, even after you've blown it dry, set it, or curled it, at the very least get a trim.

Your high school friends assure you that "you haven't changed a bit!"

Guess what? It's probably time to do just that,  Start getting inspired by collecting images of cuts you'd consider. Revisit them weekly until you can picture living with one of them. Next, schedule an appointment.

Your highlights are more noticeable than your base color.

This is an indication that your highlights have become too heavy. The fix? Consider a single process to cover the streaks and lay off new highlights for at least 2-3 months. (Don't worry, some of the lighter bits will naturally show through, giving you a subtler, sun-kissed effect.)

You're not receiving compliments on your hair anymore.

One simple tweak sure to garner attention is to set your strands in hot rollers.  "Of all the heat-styling tools, they produce the softest, sexiest waves."

Your hair and skin tone match.

If your tress and skin tones have become too close, you could benefit from lowlights,  Add deeper, warmer
streaks using peroxide and ammonia-free color to give your look loads of dimension without damaging your hair.


Your clothes have evolved; your hair hasn't.

According to Stylist to the Stars, altering your clothing style is the perfect excuse to update your 'do. This way, your new look will work from head to toe ? literally. For example, if you've recently lost weight and are finally sporting all those curve-hugging clothes previously relegated to the back of your closet, you might want to get a sleeker, more face-flattering coif.

Two words: Brillo pad.

Lopping off significant length may be the only way to eliminate dryness. But in the meantime, switch to a cream-based styler (such as Matrix Milk Creme Conditioner & Styling Creme) to add moisture to your hair, which will render it more supple and less apt to break.

You pull your hair into a ponytail all the time.

We suggest adding bangs or layers to give your locks some shape ? that way, you'll be more apt to wear them down.

You spend more than 20 minutes styling your hair.

If it takes this long, your cut is clearly not making the most of your texture. A fast fix: Get your stylist to create 'dos that work with your curls (like long layers) or that boost your lank locks (like a blunt bob).

SIGN #10
Your stylist could cut your hair with her eyes closed.

Sounds like someone's in a rut (not just you). Talk to your Stylist & Seek out a fresh New Look just for YOU!

"The easiest way to keep current? Start with a versatile cut, then alter your texture and color as often as you like!"

*Wedding Hair Styles : Choosing Your Bridal/Wedding Hair Style*<>

Are you confused over what will be the perfect wedding hair style for you?  Has thumbing through numerous magazines left you dazed, confused and overloaded with ideas?  Should you wear it up, down, curled or straight?  Just Relax?Take a deep breath? Here is some information you can use to help you pick out you beautiful Wedding Hair Style.


There are no wrong and right answers when it comes to selecting the right bridal hair style for yourself?.


When it comes to your wedding hair style, your number one most important factor is to be absolutely positive you actually like it.  A common mistake many brides make is to completely loose their personal style identity when it comes making hair and fashion choices for their wedding day.  Of course you will want to look and feel special on your wedding day,  but take care to ensure that it is recognizably you who walks up the aisle to exchange "I dos".


Here are some tips that will remove some of the confusion surrounding wedding hair dos?.


Plan, Plan, Plan. There are so many things to manage & take care of for the big day.  No matter if it is your wedding dream to top the latest celebrity wedding, or if it is just ten of your close friends & family, you still need a wedding planning checklist.  Make sure that you add discussing your wedding hairstyle with your stylist to your checklist. This is best done some months before the big day.  The sooner the better!  


Shine, Shine, Shine.  Just because nearly every bridal magazine you pick-up features brides with flowing tresses, don't feel that you have to.  If you normally wear your hair short, then have your stylist help you think of a short wedding hairstyle.  If you're still laboring under the misconception that short hair does not make for a good bridal hair style then think again, there a lot of beautiful brides that have got married without having long hair.  Don't do something just because you think that a bride should.  Let the true you  Shine through on your big day!


Communicate. Most cases of bridal wedding stress can be traced back to poor communication. Friction between a bride and pretty much anyone around her is not uncommon as the big day draws nearer.  As a bride you need to be assertive and clear in communicating from the outset with those associated with the wedding plans.  Most importantly communicate with your bridal party about their dresses,  hair and make-up as soon as you possibly can.  Discuss styles and preferences that you have,  and make sure that it is something they are comfortable wearing.  It is also important to decide early on, who is paying for what.  If you want your bridal attendants to all visit a hair stylist to have their hair styled then you need to consider paying for them, you could do this as your thank you gift for being in the wedding party.  If your bridesmaids are having matching hairstyles this is pretty much a necessity.  But if you cannot afford o pay for them all, then ask your stylist if she can break down the total into separate bills.


Consider the whole picture. Resist the urge to be a magpie bride who grabs at anything that she finds appealing. This approach will only result in a bizarre medley of styles that do not necessarily gel. Instead, take a minute and consider what you want the theme or style of your wedding to be. Talk to your hairstylist as soon as you have decided on your overall theme - they can give you ideas on how to fit your hair style into the overall picture.


The Bridal Hair & The Bridal Dress, Think of them both as you would about what shoes would match a certain outfit you wearing.  It is important that your hair matches your dress.

For many people, their wedding day is the most important day of their lives. To make it a magical day of sweet memories you need to plan and communicate well. The hairstyle you pick for your wedding day should make you feel confident and beautiful, because it is how you feel on the day that is most important. Feel beautiful and you will be beautiful.

*Making Your Hair Color Lasts As Long As Possible*


Whether you have your hair professionally colored or you use home hair coloring kits, you want to make your hair color last as long as possible.


There are several things you can do to maximize your newly colored tresses so your beautiful new hue remains gorgeous and vibrant as long as possible.


Listed below are several techniques you can try for finding a great hair color you will love:


*Select a hair coloring product that is most compatible with your life style. If you don't have time to update your roots every 4-6 weeks, you may want to select a shade of hair color only 1-3 shades lighter than your natural color. The closer you stay to your natural hair color, the less your roots will show as they start to peek through.


*When your roots are less obvious, your hair color will last longer before you have to touch up your roots. It is always best to select the type of coloring product that is easiest for you to maintain.


*Apply a deep conditioning treatment to your hair a few days before coloring. The better conditioned your hair is, the easier the color will take and the longer it will last. Recently conditioned hair will also be softer and shinier. As an extra bonus, a deep conditioner will protect your hair against any possible damage from the color chemicals.


*It is best to apply hair color to "aged hair"  Wait at least 24 or 48 hours before applying color products. The natural hair oils will assist in making the color application more successful. The color will cling better to hair that is not dry.


*Use a color enhancing shampoo between applications to enhance and maintain the color. Color shampoos are specifically designed to keep your color fresh as long as possible. Use color shampoos religiously to maintain your color. A color shampoo will help you keep your color looking good until it is time for the next application. If you don't wish to use a color enhancing shampoo then at least use the most gentle shampoo that you can.


*Avoid exposing your colored hair to the sun or chlorine in swimming pools. The sun may fade your hair color and the chlorine may damage the color. In some severe cases, if you have colored your hair a very light color the chlorine may leave a green tinge to your hair.


*Keep your hair well-conditioned. Hair coloring will make your hair drier than normal. It is important to keep your hair conditioned and soft. Conditioned hair holds color better than dry, brittle or damaged hair. Conditioned hair also makes the colored hair shinier and brighter.


*Add a temporary color to give you longer wear.  There are several wonderful temporary hair colors now available on the market that will give your hair a temporary color what washes out after a few shampoos. If the roots seem to be growing out a lot faster than normal, or the color looks a little faded, use a temporary color until your next permanent color application.


*Use layered colors to prevent an overall faded color look. If your hair is colored all one color, or seems to fade rapidly after each color application, you may want to try a layered color look. The advantage to applying layered colors would be to have complimentary shades of darker and lighter colors which would reflect the light and give the color a multidimensional look. This would give your color a fresher, less faded look. It would also last longer because of the multiple shades woven into your hair. A professional colorist would need to assist you with layered coloring since it can be somewhat complicated.  Celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves also recommends using eye shadow in a matching color to your blonde hues and gently dabbing along the darker roots to camouflage new growth.   


Final Hair Coloring Notes

If you use a home hair color kit be sure to read all the instructions before you begin and always have an extra box on hand in case you run out of the mix, have an unexpected spill or the bottle is damaged in any way.


If you visit a color professional, be sure that you carefully explain your lifestyle and time constraints.


Be sure to select a color that you can maintain easily and will fit your pocketbook.
