There’s no one haircut that is low-maintenance for everyone. An easy, wash-and-go style depends on your particular hair type and texture. Medium density wavy hair cut into a long bob will look great with little more than a casual tousle, while the same cut on thick coarse hair will require serious styling to look polished. So what are the easiest, low-maintenance shapes for your hair? Click the notes to find out. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

How can you tell the difference between fine hair (small individual strands) and thin hair (small number of strands)? Is your hair naturally coarse or just damaged? Is it strong enough to take a big color change? Is it frizzy or just curly? We all have certain ideas about what our particular hair challenges are and what’s caused them. But often our perspective is usually distorted. False information can lead to all sorts of errors and frustrations, from buying the wrong products to asking for the wrong haircuts. So how do you know what your hair type really is? Click through to the notes for a series of conclusive, DIY tests. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →





So I recently had issues with my shower starting to clog up. The culprit? Hair! Sounds a bit icky, right? But all of us lose hair in the shower. And while most of this loss is perfectly ok, it can be quite annoying and clogging! (Side note, should you have an issue with hair clogging your shower, I recommend investing in the DrainWig Shower Hair Catcher). Still I figured that there has to be away to cleanse my hair more gently so as to not lose as much hair. And after some research I learned about a technique that helps you wash your hair so that you loose less in the shower. The key in the process is to be gentle and not roughen up your strands.

Many popular hairstyles, from beach waves to the top knot, rely on hair that isn’t freshly washed. Dirty, grungy, gritty texture is cool, so why would you want to use clarifying shampoo? A little grit can add texture and bounce to your mane, but too much and you’ll end up with greasy roots, limp strands, and no volume. If you like to go a few days in between washings you need to make your shampoos count. Even if you wash your hair every day or two you should do an occasional deep cleanse to remove product buildup, mineral deposits, and other deep level dirt. Learn more about clarifying your strands in the notes. ––  Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
