How To Make Haircut Cornrows At Home

type=’html’>Cornrows are a popular hairstyle for women, today. They are a functional and fashionable way to wear your hair. If you often workout or wear hats, this will simplify life. Anyone can learn how to make cornrows. It may take a little practice and patience, but you can do this at home. Here are some tips to get you started.

Planning your New Hairstyle

You should have a very good idea as to what you new style will look like. One way is to draw it out into a plan or you may look for examples. There are many good examples in magazines and online.

Applying the Water

Your hair should be damp as opposed to wet. This is easily done with a spray bottle. If you do not have any detangling products, you can mix conditioner with the water. This makes your hair more relaxed and keeps you from pulling too hard on it, as you braid.

Separating the Hair

You will need to select the section of hair that you are starting with. Part the other hair out of the way and secure it with clips. You may wish to make unused hair into a pigtail, temporarily.

Separating and Braiding the Hair

Your section of hair has to be made into three separate strands. Make two stitches with these three strands. For the next stitch, add extra hair to the center strand. This will give you three strands to work with, for each stitch. Adding extra hair keeps the braid close to the head. Remember to make a braid stitch as you work to the end of the hair. Do not forget to add the extra hair, each time.

Keeping Your Work Intact

After you finish a braid, you need to secure it, as this keeps it from unraveling. It is never a good idea to use normal rubber bands on the hair. They will be too tight and can cause damage. There are many good products like beads and clips that will work well.

Final Thoughts

Cornrows are a stylish and practical hairstyle for women. Learning how to make cornrows may take some practice. However, it can easily be mastered with patience and time. Start with damp and not wet hair. Choose a section to work on and make it into three strands. Make two stitches and then take extra hair for the middle strand. Continue until you reach the end of the braid. Secure each braid with a good hair product. Normal rubber bands may damage hair and should not be used.

Sedu ??? What is it.

by Daniel

The Sedu hairstyle is simple, very straight, shiny and silky looking hair. This style is very easy to achieve to those who already have straight hair and is possible for those who have very curly hair.
How do I get the Sedu Hairstyle ?

You get this style by using a ceramic flat iron. You don’t need a “specific SEDU flat iron”

The term “Sedu” is really a brand of flat iron. However this style can be created by using any ceramic flat iron.

The “Sedu” term happened to be an easier way of describing very straight hair. Sedu is the popular term that people associate with what Sedu really is.

Before the flat iron it was very difficult for people who had curly hair to obtain straight hair.

Chemical straightening used to be the only way for most with curly hair to get it this straight. The flat iron has reduced the amount of money spent on chemical straighteners. Sedu hairstyles are much cheaper than chemical straighteners. You’re still able to achieve other styles without permanently being straight all the time.

Now you can achieve straight hair in half the time..

No more standing in front of the mirror with a blow dryer and round brush to get the straight hair you want.

Other considerations:

Another nice thing about the Sedu hairstyle is that is one of the most inexpensive ways to do your hair as this mentioned earlier is something that is very easy to achieve. Then again if you’re just afraid of doing it wrong then by all means speak to your stylist about achieving the Sedu hairstyle.

“Original” Chi and GHD are among the best ceramic flat irons that you can use alongside the Sedu flat iron if you choose to spend the money on one to achieve the Sedu hairstyle.

If you’re going to spend the time and energy to achieve the Sedu hairstyle don’t waste your money on a cheap ceramic alternative that is going to ruin your hair in the end. Spend the extra money and buy a good professional grade ceramic flat iron.

IMPORTANT

ALL IRONS will damage your hair when used “DAILY”… but buy buying professional grade ceramic irons will reduce the possibility of damaging your hair even more. Professional irons have the technology to reduce maximum damage to your hair.

Lisa Kudrow


It’s All Work and No Play for Lisa Kudrow

After she became part of TV history along with her Friends co-stars, Lisa Kudrow kept her fans delighted by taking on a string of quirky characters on screens big and small.

Now, she’s delivering the kind of off-the-wall performance she loves as a foster mom from hell in Hotel for Dogs. The irony is that, off-screen, she and her handsome hubby, French TV exec Michael Stern, are doting parents.

Q: You crossed a line by being mean to kids on screen. How did you dare?

A: Oh, my god. You mean what if I’m on the cover of the tabloids as the mean mom? I thought it would be fun to play a sort of villain in a family movie. So she doesn’t like kids. That’s OK. But here’s the bad news. I took my son to a screening and, unfortunately, there were moments that felt familiar to him. Maybe that’s not so good.

Q: Who’s the disciplinarian, you or your husband?

A: I was a pushover until my husband taught me that I have to be more strict. But I don’t know if strict is OK or not. I’ve been trying to be a little more structured and have rules and boundaries and I’ve gotten better at it. But I’d say my husband takes care of the discipline.

Q: When you speak about your husband, you beam.

A: He’s phenomenal. Thank God for him. He’s so centered and he keeps all the hype and fame stuff in total perspective. He knows that there’s no danger of me falling in love with someone that I don’t know, like a co-star in a movie. I mean, we’ve talked about that a lot and I don’t get crushes that easily. Oh God, I wouldn’t leave him for anything or anyone.

Q: How did you feel about sharing the set with a bunch of dogs?

A: I grew up with dogs and I have a toy poodle. But when you’re filming everyone has to have their ducks in a row before the dogs come to set, otherwise it will be harder to get them to do what they need to do. But that’s fine with me. You can’t upstage a cute doggie.

Q: You get to be pretty outrageous in Hotel for Dogs. Is it fun to be sort of the Queen of Mean?

A: It is occasionally. But when I was with The Groundlings comedy troupe, the emphasis was almost always on the mean stuff. You had to look angry to make it funny. I didn’t want to live my life like that just to get laughs. I realized that there were things that I thought were funny that weren’t so mean spirited and I got a chance to show another side of myself on Friends.

Q: There are a lot of talented comedic actresses, including you, who don’t get a chance to be funny as a leading lady on the big screen. Why is that?

A: I wish I knew. Male-driven comedies always outnumber female driven comedies. Then when there is one, everyone is like, ‘Well, that was a shock. Who would’ve thought people would go to see women be funny in a movie?’

Q: Did you ever feel a challenge to go beyond your image as Phoebe on Friends?

A: It hasn’t come up that much. I don’t get people saying before they cast me, ‘I need to see that you’re not going to be Phoebe when you do this.’ Actually, I’m always expecting it to happen. But I’ve gotten a lot of roles that are nothing like her. Maybe I’m just lucky.

Q: Blonde or brunette — which is more fun?

A: My hair was dark most of my life. When I became blonde, I definitely felt lighter, and I guess also because you’re lighter, people treat you lightly. It just feeds into itself. I really lightened up. When I had dark hair I didn’t smile as much. I was, you know, a depressive. But when my hair got lighter, everyday I was just in between smiles.
