L.A. HEAD PIECES
Headpiece in LA
The basic principle is the hairdresser to style hair. But not that! Some of émarquent work and other subjects. This is the case of Steve David in Los Angeles.
Steve creates helmets with different products: plastic paper, syringes, playing cards, but also with safety pins.
For this creation, Steve David wanted a warm and punk rock, but also beautiful and elegant.
The few who have already been approached this "helmet" wanted to buy one.
With his work, Steve hopes to move the conformism of Los Angeles.
FALL HAIRSTYLES: DARING CUTS, NATURAL COLORS
Fall Hairstyles: Daring Cuts, Natural Colors
Whether Cropped or Fringed, the Cut's the Thing
"For the everyday girl, a beautiful haircut that pushes away from the face is just perfect," Nichols said. She suggests adding an element like a side-sweeping fringe, which is suitable for all age groups. "For younger girls, a shorter side-sweeping fringe will bring out their beautiful skin," she said. "For older women, I think you will see a longer fringe that falls closer to the cheekbone to create that shadow between the cheekbone and the jaw that really enhances bone structure."
Another twist on fringe is inspired by the 1960s Chelsea bang made famous by Vidal Sassoon. Steve David, celebrity hair stylist and founder of Steve David Salon in Los Angeles, says this bang is great with a shoulder-length shag. "The reason I like this cut is because you can also wear it a little bit undone, so it's great for girls on the go," David said. "You just style it with powder or any texturizing product to separate it, and that's all you need."
One rule of thumb for getting fringe: Have a professional do it. Both David and Nichols caution about the difficulty of cutting your own bangs. Because your eye line is below where you want to cut, it will give you a false illusion. You can end up cutting too much or going too deep into your hairline.
"Fall is all about cut and silhouette," said David, who has worked with actresses Evan Rachel Wood and Charlotte Gainsbourg. "You will see that shorter hair is all the rage," he said, pointing to celebrities like Ginnifer Goodwin and models like Britt Maren, who are already sporting this fashion-forward look.
Short haircuts are not really about age, but rather about the angles of your face, according to David. "If the bones are there and you have a great neck, then this is the cut," he explained. "The thing about short is that it's easy styling. You use less product and you can wear it messy, and it looks fantastic." Going short may seem a bit drastic if you're a long-haired girl, so David suggests working gradually to a short length to avoid any shock as a result of cutting off all your locks at once.

Copy the Stars with DIY Hairstyles
The red carpet is always a good place to look for inspiration for your next hairstyle from sexy up 'dos to sleek tresses. While some of these creations seem difficult, two prominent Hollywood stylists have offered their guidance on how you may copy a few hairstyles that stars have worn to big-time events.
Drew Barrymore's Waves
Drew Barrymore's hairstyle at a benefit dinner hosted by Chanel in June 2011 consists of loose, relaxed waves.
Drew Barrymores quintessential relaxed style is enviable. More enviable is the way she translates her easy breezy style to red carpet glamour.
At Chanel's benefit dinner for the Natural Resources Defense Council's Ocean Initiative in June 2011, Barrymore wore tousled waves that were definitely worthy of the red carpet.
That was '80s retro glam, said its creator, stylist Byron Williams. It reminded me of the perfume ads back in the '80s," said Williams, co-owner of Beverly Hills, California-based Byron & Tracey. Its natural waves full and messy. I wanted to create something that was reminiscent of that era. Its not that hard to duplicate at home. If you have a natural wave, just part it in the middle. Intensify the wave with a curling iron. Just fluff it with the brush or tease it a bit to add the body.
If you are not blessed with natural curls, Los Angeles-based celebrity stylist Steve David, whose clients include Evan Rachel Wood and Beth Behrs, suggests using a curling iron.
Dont use the clamp on the curling iron, he said.Instead, hold it vertical, so the nose is face toward the ground. You can start from the root or you can start midshaft to the ends for a more boho look. Use a setting lotion to hold the curl.
Some women have hair that can't hold a curl. David suggests they pin the finished curls with the curling iron. Allow the curls to cool and set for as long as possible. Use a wide-tooth comb to rake out the tendrils, as brushing can wipe out the curl. A bit of sea salt spray can give the finished look additional appeal.
I love this look because it has movement," David said, "and hair should move.
