Hairstyle Trends for Spring & Summer 2017

So what’s gonna be hot for hair when the weather turns warmer? The new hairstyle trends for spring and summer, 2009, characterize a variety of styles that will flatter hair of any length, whether it’s short, long or in-between.

There’s something for everyone! Looking for change? Get a haircut that allows you to wear a practical style for daytime and a more flirty look for the evening hours.

Long Hairstyles

Wavy, textured hair brings a tousled, feminine look. If your hair is long and thick, this is easy to achieve because textured and shaped hair allows you more control with your hair style. Simply wash your hair, add some mousse and blow dry your hair on low. Use a curling iron and finger-comb the layers. For piecey chunks, apply styling wax on the ends to separate.

For a simple, sleek and smooth look, straight hair can look great on almost anyone, reflecting light and enhancing shine. If you have natural waves, you don’t need to blow-dry. Simply use a flat iron to straighten it out section by section after you let it air dry. Set the style with hair spray and stay away from rain or heavy humidity.

Short Hair

Want less fuss with a short hairstyle? Ask your stylist for heavy layers to add dimension, fullness, and bounce. Boyish, yet feminine, this is the easiest cut to wash and style. If you prefer more than a basic bob, look for an asymmetrical cut to update your look and keep you on the edge.

Ringlets that are too tight look old-fashioned and Victorian. Keep your short curls loose and natural. Finger comb and tousle your tresses when slightly wet for a true romantic look. Face-framing layers will help make a basic hairstyle more versatile and add much needed movement.

Whatever your hair length, this year’s parts are leaning towards the center. What looks best on you may depend on the shape of your head, if you have bangs, and if they will also part to reveal a portion of your forehead. If you prefer a side part, forgo the center and wear it where you wish. Not every trend looks good on everyone.


The current trend for bangs is soft and side-swept, exposing only part of your forehead. To look anything but ordinary, opt for angled bangs to accentuate your unique style. Whilst bangs require more frequent maintenance, they’re great for covering up a long forehead, flaws, or lines.

Ponytails are back in a big way. With their practicality, getting ready for a casual or formal event is a snap. Soft waves add sensuality to a basic ponytail. For any texture of hair, set high or low, what’s classic is now trendy. Try combing your hair back with your fingers for a slightly imperfect, messed-up hairdo.

Color & Highlights Trends

Sexy, feminine highlights are always in style. Chunky highlights give way to subtle. Spring brings popular multi-tone highlights and lowlights for several shades of color that adds dimension and reflects the light. A great haircut combined with delicate highlights ensure that you will look classy at special events and in pictures. Trendy and stylish, this summer promises to bring some of the most exciting hairstyles we’ve seen in years. What better time is there to update your tresses?

“As Time Goes By”

“As Time Goes By”

music and words by Herman Hupfeld

Click hereHear Dooley Wilson sing “As Time Goes By” (a .WAV file).

[This day and age we’re living in
Gives cause for apprehension
With speed and new invention
And things like fourth dimension.Yet we get a trifle weary
With Mr. Einstein’s theory.
So we must get down to earth at times
Relax relieve the tensionAnd no matter what the progress
Or what may yet be proved
The simple facts of life are such
They cannot be removed.]You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.And when two lovers woo
They still say, “I love you.”
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by.Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date.
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate.
Woman needs man
And man must have his mate
That no one can deny.It’s still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die.
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

Oh yes, the world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

The History Of Wigs

In ancient Egypt, both males and females wore wigs made either from human hair, sheep’s wool or vegetable fibers, depending upon their social status. There were a number of benefits for Egyptians from shaving their heads. First it was more comfortable in the hot Egyptian climate not to have hair. Secondly, a baldhead helped avoid the danger of an infestation of lice, which was a problem at that time. However, it appears that Egyptians preferred having “hair” which resulted in the creation of wigs that gave the appearance of hair. The new wigs also protected the Egyptians’ baldheads from the brutal sun. Wigs became part of daily wear for the Egyptian people indicating a person’s status as well as their role in a society or politics. Women’s wigs were adorned with braids and gold, hair-rings and ivory ornaments making them more stylish than men’s wigs. Ultimately, the more elaborate and involved the wig was, the higher the social rank.

Other ancient civilizations whose citizens wore wigs were the Greeks, Romans, Assyrians, and the Phoenicians. For the Romans, in particular, wigs were often made with hair from slaves. During the Roman Empire wealthy Roman women often wore elaborate hairpieces to greatly increase the volume and effect of the hairstyle.

In contrast, the people of the ancient civilizations in the Far East, including China and Japan, rarely wore wigs except by actors performing in the traditional theaters of China and Japan (Noh or Kabuki) and by certain types of female entertainers such as the Japanese geisha or the Korean Kisaeng.

With the emergence of Christian influences during the medieval era became plainer. By the Middle Ages (1200-1400 A.D.) wigs lost their relevance because of difficult times. Women were usually required to have their head covered, fashion was off everyone’s radar, and beauty was austere. Then, in the beginning of Renaissance (1400-1600) the female hairstyle regained importance and women began showing their hair again. Instead of covering their heads, they adorned their coiffures with lustrous veils and sparkling jewels. Once again women’s wigs emerged as fashion and beauty became important considerations in society.

The history of wigs in France stretches back to the reign of Louis Xlll who went prematurely bald. To disguise his baldness he began wearing elaborate wigs. Historical records indicate that the first independent wigmakers’ guild was created in 1673. The wig now enjoyed the most noble of pedigrees from the seventeenth-century French courts of Louis XIII and Louis XIV and it became a fashion icon that was integral to the aristocratic world of power and display. The mistress of King Louis XIV wore her hair in a signature hairstyle called the la Fontange. It was a fashion look that was copied and with the help of hairpieces and false locks worn by numerous high upper class “wantabees”. By the end of the Sun King’s reign, wigs had spread well beyond the nobility of France. Kings at royal courts across Europe wore wigs, now a most essential feature of the European noble costume.

The 18th century saw elaborate wigs with mile-high coiffures and highly decorated curls. White powdered wigs with long ringlets became the order of the day. In fact, some imaginative ladies had wigs with small birdcages complete with bird, on top of their heads. For wigs, big hair was definitely the in-thing.

Another memorable royal who was known for her elaborate wigs was Queen Elizabeth I of England. Wigs were so widespread that virtually all the elite wore wigs or elaborate hairstyles during this time. It is not surprising that by the end of the 18th century the number of French master wigmakers had skyrocketed from the fashion center of Paris to other European capitols and finally to provincial cities as well. In addition to the guild master wigmakers were thousands of journeymen wig makers and artisans traveling the European countryside producing wigs clandestinely. Eventually, wigs were no longer an exclusive luxury item, an exclusive marker of high birth or a status symbol worn by the privileged few. A shorter, less elaborate wig, called the bob wig, was very popular in Colonial America at the beginning of the 18th century.

The word “wigs”, itself, is taken from “periwigs” which was the name of the particular long, curly wigs that became popular after Charles II was returned to the throne in 1660. Some historian attribute popular fashion status of the periwig to Louis XIII. The periwig simulated real hair and was primarily used for adornment or to cover the loss of real hair. Periwigs became extremely sought after it achieved status symbol. Having become a tradition of the English Court, the periwig is still seen today in modern British courts.

By the end of the 18th century, young men began wearing their hair in a more natural state. Although the powered look and the use of wigs continued, it was not longer a fashion look worn everyday but reserved for older, more conservative men and ladies who were being presented at court. With the civil unrest in France against the excesses of the nobility and the association between fashion, wigs and the aristocracy, the importance of wigs in France also began to slowly fade away during the time of the French Revolution.

The start of the 20th century saw the use of more hairpieces being used to enhance hairstyles. However, wigs have never regained the immense popularity that they once enjoyed.

Everything associated with fashion: hairstyles, wigs, clothing, shoes, handbags evolve. Modern technology has made stylish, chic synthetic wigs within the reach of everyone. Wig manufacturers are constantly developing better wig cap construction, fit, and styling. Human hair wigs allow the maximum in versatility and styling possibilities, while synthetic wigs look like natural, healthy human hair, yet are easier to maintain and are less expensive. In western countries the #1 reason wigs are worn is for convenience.
Yet wigs are still worn today to create aesthetic attention. Many celebrities have based their stage image on the use of wigs; just look at Cher or Dolly Parton.

Fortunately, there are comfortable, lightweight medical wigs available to people suffering hair loss due to medical conditions or treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy. And there are fun, costume wigs for Halloween, parties and events.

A Boy Singing to his little sister…..  You are My Sunshine, My only Sunshine’
(Be prepared to get watery eyes!)

Like any good mother, when Karen found out that another baby was on the

way, she did what she could to help her 3-year-old son, Michael, prepare

for a new sibling.

They found out that the new baby was going be a girl, and day after day,

night after night, Michael sang to his sister in mommy’s tummy.

He was building a bond of love with his little sister before he even met


The pregnancy progressed normally for Karen, an active member of the

Panther Creek United Methodist Church in Morristown , Tennessee

In time, the labor pains came. Soon it was every five minutes, every

three, every minute. But serious complications arose during delivery and

Karen found herself in hours of labor.

Would a C-section be required? Finally, after a long struggle, Michael’s

little sister was born. But she was in very serious condition.

With a siren howling in the night, the ambulance rushed the infant to

the neonatal intensive care unit at St. Mary’s Hospital, Knoxville ,

Tennessee The days inched by. The little girl got worse. The

pediatrician had to tell the parents there is very little hope. Be

prepared for the worst.

Karen and her husband contacted a local cemetery about a burial plot.

They had fixed up a special room in their house for their new baby but

now they found themselves having to plan for a funeral. Michael,

however, kept begging his parents to let him see his sister. I want to

sing to her, he kept saying.

Week two in intensive care looked as if a funeral would come before the

week was over.

Michael kept nagging about singing to his sister, but kids are never

allowed in Intensive Care. Kar en decided to take Michael whether they

liked it or not.

If he didn’t see his sister right then, he may never see her alive.
She dressed him in an oversized scrub suit and marched him into ICU.
He looked like a walking laundry basket.

The head nurse recognized him as a child and bellowed,
‘Get that kid out of here now. No children are allowed.’
The mother rose up strong in Karen,
and the usually mild-mannered lady glared steel-eyed right into

the head nurse’s face, her lips a firm line.
‘He is not leaving until he sings to his sister’ she stated.

Then Karen towed Michael to his sister’s bedside.

He gazed at the tiny infant losing the battle to live.

After a moment, he began to sing.

In the pure-hearted voice of a 3-year-old, Michael sang:

‘You are my sunshine, my only sunshine,
you make me happy when skies are gray.’
Instantly the baby girl seemed to respond.
The pulse rate began to calm down and become steady.

‘Keep on singing, Michael,’ encouraged Karen with tears in her eyes.

‘You never know, dear, how much I love you,
please don’t take my sunshine away.’
As Michael sang to his sister, the baby’s ragged,

strained breathing became as smooth as a kitten’s purr
‘Keep on singing, sweetheart.’

‘The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping, I dreamed I held you in my

arms’ Michael’s little sister began to relax as rest,
healing rest, seemed to sweep over her.

‘Keep on singing, Michael.’
Tears had now conquered the face of the bossy head nurse.
Karen glowed.

‘You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.
Please don’t take my sunshine away.’

The next day…the very next day.
the little girl was well enough to go home

Woman’s Day Magazine called it The Miracle of a Brother’s Song.

The medical staff just called it a miracle.

Karen called it a miracle of God’s love.
