New Hair Accessory Provides Ease and Fashionable Styling
www.hairzing.com – We’ve all seen the countless numbers of different hair combs, clips, elastic
bands and accessories that are designed to make styling your hair both simple and fashionable. Well, here’s a product that looks
like it can really deliver on its promises. The HairZing is a styling accessory that combines hair safe combs with beaded elastic
connections to create a tool for holding any hair type neatly and attractively – from the finest hair to the bulkiest.
The site for the product offers a range of sizes to accommodate different hair lengths and types
and many different styles of beadwork for different looks. The cost of each varies according to the materials used in its
construction. The majority of the basic styles of HairZing are priced at $13.95 (U.S. dollars) while the company offers a couple
of new styles made from genuine crystal beadwork for $44.50 each.
Unlike many sites that advertise and sell hair accessories, the HairZing site offers not only
instructions for use, but fully detailed information on the construction of the hair accessories, as well as video demonstrating
how the HairZing can be used to make a variety of styles as well as its basic use to confine the hair.
Zentralverband des Deutschen Friseurhandwerks Hairstyles
Germany – The recent glamour hype has drifted away. Instead new puristic tendencies are gaining
more and more ground. Rarely have the fashionmakers at the Zentralverband des Deutschen Friseurhandwerks (ZV) put so much emphasis
on an elementary language of shape. Clarity and reduction make the styling trends for autumn and winter 2007/2008 and they surprise
with unexpected finesse. It is a very urban fashion for all those, who do not confuse attracting attention with flashyness, for whom
being up-to date is also an exercise in style.
This season again shows the new love for the old style. Retro remains trendy. Design and fashion are especially influenced by the
60s. The sixtie’s hairstyles are staged in a modern way and also the 80s are leaving their traces. Geometrical shapes and exact
lines create the graphical aestethics of the new looks.
The fashion program for the male style seekers is not less interesting. The new styles intrigue with their unconventional views.
The combination of precise cuts and strong texture creates progressive, smart and also natural looks.
