How to Make Hair Grow Longer

Model 66As I am sure you have heard, if you cut your hair frequently your hair will grow in faster, longer, and healthier.

Gobbledygook! This myth came from the observation of men’s facial hair. As they shaved, the facial hair would indeed grow in thicker. Its called, ‘puberty.’

This is because certain male hormones affect facial hair in that manner. They do not affect the hair on the head in the same way.

To the contrary. Male hormonal activity is what leads to hair thinning and loss on certain parts of the head, but not all. Hence the familiar balding pattern known as ‘male pattern baldness.’ This same hormonal activity also affects women, but not until much later in life, and in a different pattern.

Cutting your hair only makes it shorter, does not affect the growth rate one iota, and cannot determine the length that your hair will grow to. Maximum hair length is determined by the shape and width of the hair shaft, and that is determined genetically and is not alterable with current technology.

Lastly, hair is neither healthy or unhealthy. It is in fact, dead. Else, it would really hurt to cut it. It is the health of the hair follicle below the outer skin that requires nutrients for good health, and deminished adverse hormonal activity.

So, unless you have split ends or chemically damaged hair, the only need to cut your hair is for the look that you want.

Blondes aren’t the only bombshells these days, according to a study of 2,000 men conducted by social network site Badoo.  A third of those polled (33.1%) said they found brown hair the most attractive, and 28.6% had a preference for black.  Only 29.5% of voters preferred blondes, while redheads trailed with 8.8%.  Are you surprised by the findings?  Or the out come what you would expect?

3 Top Red Carpet Trends For Fall: Urban French Twist, Undone Wave, Modern Movie Star

At Cutler Salon in New York, Matrix celebrity stylist Nathan Rosenkranz often fails to recognize his famous clients.  But it makes no difference.  “Whether I know who they are or not, whether they’re famous or not, I treat every client like a celebrity,” he laughs.

In preparation for the fall red carpet season, Nathan has identified three key trends that he believes will suit many of the high-profile models and actresses who turn to him for pre-event primping.  And in keeping with Nathan’s “every woman is a celebrity” point of view, these looks are also perfect for dances, weddings, parties and other events at which the paparazzi aren’t necessarily present!

Red Carpet Trend #1: Does She or Doesn’t She? Waves
The uniform “beach wave” will give way to a more natural configuration this season, manifesting in a wave pattern that leaves people wondering whether the texture is natural or created.  Before heading to a swanky event for a top cosmetics brand, European actress and model Elisa Sednaoui stopped off in Nathan’s chair and the undone wave was born. After prepping her fine, damp hair lengths with Matrix Design Pulse Go Big Extra Strong Hold Mousse and the roots with Total Results Amplify Wonder Boost Root Lifter, Nathan dried the hair with a large, round brush to create maximum volume.  Next, he wrapped sections around a large-barrel, open curling iron, omitting the final inch to inch-and-a-half at the ends.  Once the waves cooled, he lightly tousled her hair with his fingers and misted with Matrix Vavoom ShapeMaker Extra-Hold Hairspray.

Red Carpet Trend #2: The Urban French Twist
Think the Bohemian section of Paris, rather than a high-class arrondissement—the Urban French Twist is more casual and careless than its polished, uptown cousin.  Nathan reveals that he recently created two versions of his twisted “twist”—on actress and television personality China Chow and pouty supermodel Lindsey Wixson.
“I did Lindsey for a public appearance and she wanted to wear her hair up,” he says.  “To get the look, I prepped her damp hair with Matrix Design Pulse Go Big Extra Strong Hold Mousse to support her thick strands.  I dried it and then set it directionally with a curling iron to create volume and control.”  Once Lindsey’s hair cooled, Nathan brushed through and fashioned a classic French twist.  Then he loosened the look with his fingers, roughing-up select strands to create a “lived-in” texture.  Before Lindsey headed out the door, he misted her twist with Design Pulse Hard Lock Extra Strong Hold Hairspray.

A short time later, Nathan created a similar look for Bravo TV’s China Chow.  As with Lindsey, he prepped China’s coarse, strong, damp strands with Matrix Design Pulse Go Big Extra Strong Hold Mousse before drying and setting her hair for volume. After releasing the curls, he worked a small amount of Matrix Total Results Sleek Silk Wonder Smoothing Oil through his hands and raked his fingers through China’s hair to add shine.  He fashioned a classic French twist, but allowed the ends to remain unsecured, directing them downward for an irreverent effect.  As a finishing touch, he misted her hair with Biolage Shine Endure Spritz and tucked an exotic orchid behind her ear!

Red Carpet Trend #3: Modern Movie Star
A modern blow dry set, directed away from the face, recalls the sexy Hollywood style of Marilyn and Rita.  Nathan’s version featured a looser wave than the ‘40s and ‘50s version, but maintains all of the polish of the originals. A center part also updates the look.  He recently created the look for leggy TV personality and current Clooney squeeze Stacy Keibler, who was performing as “bartender” at a celebrity event for a beverage company.  To begin, Nathan prepped damp hair with his favorite cocktail for style support: Matrix Design Pulse Go Big Extra Strong Hold Mousse and Total Results Amplify Wonder Boost Root Lifter. He performed a blow dry “set” with a medium round brush, clipping each barrel curl in place after shaping. As the curls cooled, Nathan misted hair with Matrix Vavoom ShapeMaker Medium-Hold Hairspray. After removing the clips, he raked through the curls with a few drops of Matrix Total Results Sleek Silk Wonder Smoothing Oil to separate and shape the curls and direct the hair up and away from the face.  He finished off the look with a bit more Vavoom ShapeMaker Hairspray.

The New York Runway Report: Fall 2012

Model 49The New York fashion verdict is in. Your grandmother’s closet will be at the top of your shopping list next fall, with a retro mix of florals and lace, knit tweeds and, yes, shawls making the sartorial cut. Chic sportsmanship will be of importance as well, especially when channeling the great outdoors or reveling in the new take on military. Travel the globe in style with your arsenal of luxe essentials — fur accents and elegant embroidery required. And a host of cool options in the way of black leather or all-white means there will definitely be something for everyone.


Slightly rumpled and eccentrically layered but completely appropriate for the British Parliament, the fall runways were a brilliant mash-up of ladylike fashion. Marc Jacobs sent his girls down the runway in exaggerated shapes and cartoon-size accessories. Fuzzy sweaters, loopy crochet shawls and knubby tweeds at Oscar de la Renta and Tory Burch lent a new twist to Park Avenue dressing — granny chic, indeed.   Read more: New York Fashion Week Fall 2012 Trend Report - Runway Fall Fashion Trends 2012 - Harper's BAZAAR
